And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan.

Arise, go to Padanaram, to the house of Bethuel thy mother's father; and take thee a wife from thence of the daughers of Laban thy mother's brother.

And God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of people;


As dy der eh dhyt bannaght Abraham, dhyt hene, as da dty luight mayrt; dy vod oo yn cheer, raad t'ou dty yoarree, y gheddyn son eiraght, hug Jee da Abraham.

And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou art a stranger, which God gave unto Abraham.

When Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob, and sent him away to Padanaram, to take him a wife from thence; and that as he blessed him he gave him a charge, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughers of Canaan;

And, behold, the Lord stood above it, and said, I am the Lord God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed;


As bee dty luight myr joan ny hooirrey, as nee oo skeayley dy lhean gys y sheear as gys y shiar, gys y twoaie as gys yn jiass, as aynyd's as ayns dty luight, bee ooilley kynneeyn y theihll er nyn mannaghey.

And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.

And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.

And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the Lord is in this place; and I knew it not.


As va aggle er, as dooyrt eh, Cre cha atchimagh as ta'n ynnyd shoh! Ta shoh son shickyrys thie Yee, as shoh giat niau.

Myr shen dy jig-ym reesht gys thie m'ayrey ayns shee: eisht bee yn Chiarn yn Jee aym's.

So that I come again to my father's house in peace; then shall the Lord be my God:


As bee yn chlagh shoh, ta mee er hoiaghey son pillar, thie Yee: as jeh ooilley ny ver oo dou, son shickyrys, ver-yms dhyt's y jaghee.

And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God's house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee.
