The Bible


Shen ny va er-dyn toshiaght, ny ta shin er chlashtyn, ny ta shin er vakin lesh nyn sooillyn, ny ta shin er yeeaghyn er, as nyn laueyn er loaghtey jeh goo yn vea;

That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;


(Son va'n vea er ny hoilshaghey, as ta shin er vakin eh, as ta shin gymmyrkey feanish, as soilshaghey diu yn vea veayn shen, va marish yn Ayr, as va er ny hoilshaghey dooin)

(For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)


Shen ny ta shin er vakin as er chlashtyn, ta shin dy hoilshaghey diuish, dy vod shiuish myrgeddin ayrn y ghoaill mârin: as dy jarroo ta'n chommeeys ain marish yn Ayr, as marish e Vac Yeesey Creest.

That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.


As ny reddyn shoh ta shin scrieu hiuish, dy vod yn boggey euish ve jeant magh.

And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.


Shoh eisht yn chaghteraght ta shin er chlashtyn veihsyn, as ta shin soilshaghey diuish, dy vel Jee soilshey, as aynsyn nagh vel dorraghys erbee.

This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.


My ta shin gra dy vel sheshaght ain mârishyn, as gimmeeaght ayns dorraghys, ta shin breagagh, as cha vel shin gra yn irriney:

If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:


Agh my ta shin gimmeeaght 'sy toilshey, myr t'eshyn 'sy toilshey, ta shin freayll sheshaght yn derrey yeh rish y jeh elley, as ta fuill Yeesey Creest e Vac glenney shin veih dy chooilley pheccah.

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.


My ta shin gra dy vel shin gyn peccah, ta shin molley shin hene, as cha vel yn irriney ain.

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.


My ta shin goaill-rish nyn beccaghyn, t'eshyn firrinagh as cairagh dy leih dooin nyn beccaghyn, as dy ghlenney shin veih dy chooilley neu-ynrickys.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.


My ta shin gra nagh vel shin er yannoo peccah, ta shin jannoo eshyn ny vreagerey, as cha vel e ghoo aynin.

If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
