The Bible


Agh va myrgeddin phadeyryn foalsey mastey'n pobble; eer myr vees fir-ynsee foalsey ny mast, euish, ver lhieu stiagh dy follit shaghrynys curstey veih'n chredjue, dy jarroo gobbal yn Chiarn ren ad y chionnaghey, as tayrn orroo hene toyrt-mow er mullagh ching.

But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.


As eiyree ymmodee da ny raaidyn mollaghtagh oc, kyndagh roosyn bee raad yn irriney er-ny oltooaney.

And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.


As trooid saynt nee ad lesh goan cluicagh jannoo merchantys jiu: yn kerraghey oc cha vel nish foddey jeh, as cha vel y deyrey oc saveenagh

And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.


Son mannagh ren Jee sparail ny ainleyn ren peccah, agh hilg eh ad sheese gys niurin, as livrey eh ad gys geulaghyn dy ghorraghys, dy ve freilt cour briwnys;

For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;


As nagh ren sparail y chenn seihll, agh haue eh Noah yn hoghtoo phersoon, preachoor dy chairys, coyrt lesh y thooilley er y seihll dy vee-chrauee;

And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;


As lostey gys leoie ard-valjyn Sodom as Gomorrha, ren eh ad y gheyrey gys toyrt-mow bollagh, jannoo sampleyr jeu dauesyn yinnagh ny lurg shen baghey dy mee-chrauee

And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;


As livrey eh Lot yn dooinney cairagh, seaghnit lesh ymmyrkey-bea feohdagh ny mee-chrauee:

And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:


(Son y dooinney cairagh shen baghey ny vud oc, liorish fakin as clashtyn, va'n annym ynrick echey er ny heaghney veih laa dy laa lesh nyn obbraghyn neu-ghooghyssagh)

(For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)


Ec y Chiarn ta fys kys dy livrey yn sleih crauee ass seaghyn, as dy reayll ny mee-chrauee gys laa ny briwnys dy ve er nyn gerraghey:

The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:


As erskyn ooilley adsyn ta gimmeeaght lurg yn eill, 'sy taynt dy neu-ghlennid, as soiaghey beg jeh reiltys: daaney t'ad, creoi-wannallagh, cha vel aggle orroo dy loayrt dy olk jeh ny pooaraghyn syrjey:

But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.


Tra nagh vel ny ainleyn ta ny syrjey ayns pooar as niart, cur stiagh plaiynt oltooanagh nyn 'oï oc kiongoyrt rish y Chiarn.

Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.


Agh ad shoh, myr be?yn fe?e gyn resoon dooghyssagh, jeant dy ve shelgit as stroit, t'ad loayrt dy olk jeh ny reddyn nagh vel ad toiggal, as nee ad cherraghtyn dy bollagh ayns y neu-ghlennid oc hene:

But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;


As yiow ad yn leagh dy vee-chairys, myr adsyn ta goaill taitnys dy eiyrt er y rouanys oc ayns soilshey yn laa: she spooit ad as lheamyssyn, cloie rish y volteyraght oc hene, choud's t'ad ec gien mêriu;

And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;


Lesh sooillyn soit er brishey-poosey, as nagh vod scuirr veih peccah; molley anmeenyn lhag-chredjuagh: creeaghyn t'oc, cliaghtit er obbraghyn sayntoilagh; cloan ny mollaght:

Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:


T'eh er dreigeil yn raad cair, as er n'gholl er-shaghryn, geiyrt da raad Balaam mac Bosor, hug saynt da'n leagh dy neu-ynrickys;

Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;


Agh hooar eh oghsan son e vee-chairys; yn assyl balloo loayrt lesh coraa dooinney, ren lhiettal ommijys y phadeyr.

But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet.


T'ad shoh chibbraghyn fegooish ushtey, bodjallyn eebrit lesh doirrin, nyn gour ta'n chay dy ghorraghys freilt er son dy bragh.

These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.


Son tra t'ad fockley magh goan mooarey follym, sheidit seose lesh fardail, t'ad cleayney trooid sayntyn ny foalley, liorish mooarane rouanys, adsyn va dy glen er scapail vouesyn ta baghey ayns shaghrynys:

For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.


Choud's t'ad gialdyn daue, reamys, t'ad hene nyn sharvaantyn dy neu-ghlennid: son liorishyn ta'n varriaght er ny gheddyn er dooinney, liorish yn er cheddin t'eh er ny choyrt lesh fo bondiaght.

While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.


Son lurg daue ve er haghney broid y theihll trooid tushtey jeh'n Chiarn as Saualtagh Yeesey Creest, my t'ad reesht goit 'sy ribbey, as yn varriaght er ny gheddyn orroo; ta'n jerrey oc ny smessey na'n toshiaght.

For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.


Son ny baare veagh eh daue gyn tushtey er ve oc jeh raad yn ynrickys, na lurg daue v'er doiggal eh, dy hyndaa veih yn anney casherick hie er livrey daue.

For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.


Agh te er daghyrt daue cordail rish y chenn laa firrinagh, Ta'n moddey er jyndaa reesht gys y skeeah echey hene; as y vuc va nieet, gys yn ymmylt eck 'sy laagh.

But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.
