The Bible


As ghow Abraham e yurnah veih shen lesh y cheer my-vials, as ren eh cummal eddyr Cadesh as Shur, as v'eh er e yoarreeght ayns Gerar.

And Abraham journeyed from thence toward the south country, and dwelled between Kadesh and Shur, and sojourned in Gerar.


As loayr Abraham mychione Sarah e ven, gra, She my huyr ee: as hug Abimelech ree Gerar fys, as ghow eh Sarah.

And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, She is my sister: and Abimelech king of Gerar sent, and took Sarah.


Agh haink Jee gys Abimelech ayns ashlish 'syn oie, as dooyrt eh rish, Cur-my-ner, cha vel oo agh dooinney marroo, kyndagh rish y ven t'ou er ghoaill: son t'ee ben dooinney elley.

But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to him, Behold, thou art but a dead man, for the woman which thou hast taken; for she is a man's wife.


Agh cha row Abimelech er jeet ny coaïr: as dooyrt eh, Jean uss, Hiarn, myrgeddin ashoon cairal y stroie?

But Abimelech had not come near her: and he said, Lord, wilt thou slay also a righteous nation?


Nagh dooyrt eshyn rhym; She my huyr ee? as dooyrt ish, dy jarroo ee hene, She my vraar eh: ayns ônid my chree, as gyn loghtynid my laueyn, ta mee er n'yannoo shoh.

Said he not unto me, She is my sister? and she, even she herself said, He is my brother: in the integrity of my heart and innocency of my hands have I done this.


As dooyrt Jee rish ayns dreamal, Dy jarroo, ta fys aym dy ren oo shoh ayns neuloghtynid dty chree: son ren mish myrgeddin dty lhiettal veih jannoo peccah m'oi: shen-y-fa cha lhig mee dhyt bentyn r'ee.

And God said unto him in a dream, Yea, I know that thou didst this in the integrity of thy heart; for I also withheld thee from sinning against me: therefore suffered I thee not to touch her.


Shen-y-fa, cur nish yn ven da'n dooinney: son she phadeyr eh, as gowee eh padjer er dty hon, as bee oo bio: agh mannagh der oo da ee, toig, dy bee oo dy shickyr er dty choyrt dy baase, oo hene, as ooilley ny ta lhiat's.

Now therefore restore the man his wife; for he is a prophet, and he shall pray for thee, and thou shalt live: and if thou restore her not, know thou that thou shalt surely die, thou, and all that are thine.


Shen-y-fa dirree Abimelech dy feer voghey, as ren eh symney cooidjagh ooilley e fir-oik, as dinsh eh ooilley ny reddyn shoh ayns y chlashtyn oc: as va aggle mooar er ny deiney.

Therefore Abimelech rose early in the morning, and called all his servants, and told all these things in their ears: and the men were sore afraid.


Eisht hug Abimelech fys er Abraham, as dooyrt eh rish, Cre shoh t'ou er n'yannoo rooin? as cre'n oill ta mee er n'yannoo, dy vel oo er choyrt lhiat orrym's, as er my reeriaght, peccah trome? s'olk yn obbyr t'ou er n'yannoo.

Then Abimelech called Abraham, and said unto him, What hast thou done unto us? and what have I offended thee, that thou hast brought on me and on my kingdom a great sin? thou hast done deeds unto me that ought not to be done.


As dooyrt Abimelech rish Abraham, Cre er v'ou smooinaghtyn, tra ren oo shoh?

And Abimelech said unto Abraham, What sawest thou, that thou hast done this thing?


As dooyrt Abraham, Er-y-fa dy smooinee mee, son shickyrys, cha vel aggle Yee, syn ynnyd shoh, as gowee ad ersooyl my vioys er choontey my ven.

And Abraham said, Because I thought, Surely the fear of God is not in this place; and they will slay me for my wife's sake.


As ny-yeih t'ee dy jarroo my huyr son t'ee inneen my ayrey, agh cha nee inneen my vayrey: as haink ee dy ve my ven.

And yet indeed she is my sister; she is the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife.


As haink eh gy-kione, tra hug Jee mee magh dy hroailt veih thie my ayrey, dy dooyrt mee r'ee, Shoh dty chenjallys nee oo y hoilshaghey dooys; Raad erbee dy jem ad, abbyr my-mychione, She my vraar eh.

And it came to pass, when God caused me to wander from my father's house, that I said unto her, This is thy kindness which thou shalt shew unto me; at every place whither we shall come, say of me, He is my brother.


As ghow Abimelech kirree as dew, as fir-vooinjerey as inneenyn-veyl, as hug eh ad da Abraham, as hug eh da reesht Sarah ven.

And Abimelech took sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and womenservants, and gave them unto Abraham, and restored him Sarah his wife.


As dooyrt Abimelech, Cur-my-ner, ta'n cheer aym's kiongoyrt rhyt; gow dty chummal raad sailt.

And Abimelech said, Behold, my land is before thee: dwell where it pleaseth thee.


As dooyrt eh rish Sarah, Cur-my-ner ta mee er choyrt da dty vraar thousane peesh dy argid: cur-my-ner, t'eshyn son fendeilagh sooilley, chammah dhyt hene, as dauesyn ooilley ta bentyn rhyt. Shoh myr hooar eh foill j'ee.

And unto Sarah he said, Behold, I have given thy brother a thousand pieces of silver: behold, he is to thee a covering of the eyes, unto all that are with thee, and with all other: thus she was reproved.


Er shoh ghow Abraham padjer gys Jee: as ren Jee lheihys Abimelech, as e ven, as e harvaantyn, as ruggyr ad cloan.

So Abraham prayed unto God: and God healed Abimelech, and his wife, and his maidservants; and they bare children.


Son va'n Chiarn er yeigh seose ooilley breinyn lught thie Abimelech: er coontey Sarah ben Abraham.

For the Lord had fast closed up all the wombs of the house of Abimelech, because of Sarah Abraham's wife.
