23Nee ommydan peeikearagh stiagh er dorrys; agh nee eshyn ta mie-ynsit shaghney shen.

24Te drogh-ynsagh ayns dooinney dy eaishtagh ec y dorrys: agh nee dooinney creeney shaghney lheid yn oltooan.

25Bee meillyn ny beealeree loayrt jeh cooishyn nagh vel bentyn daue: agh ta goan deiney tushtagh er nyn dhowse ayns ny meihaghyn.

26Ta cree ny mee-hushtee ayns nyn meeal, agh ta beeal y vooinjer chreeney ayns nyn gree.

27Tra ta’n vee-chrauee gwee mollaght da Satan, t’eh gwee mollaght da’n annym echey hene.
