Version Information

Manx Gaelic (Gaelg) is the native language of the Isle of Man (Ellan Vannin), which a self-governing British island in the Irish Sea between Britain and Ireland. It is a Gaelic language related to Irish Gaelic (Gaeilge) and Scots Gaelic (Gàidhlig) but with its own orthography closer to English style spelling. The language is regulated by the Manx Gaelic Advisory Council (Coonceil ny Gaelgey). Since 1985 Manx has been an official language of the Isle of Man along with English.

The British and Foreign Bible Society (BFBS) published the New Testament (Conaant Noa) in 1808, and then the whole Bible (Yn Vible Casherick), excluding the Apocrypha, in 1819. BFBS reprinted the New Testament in 1824. BFBS reprinted the Gospel of John (Noo Ean) in 1936, and this was reprinted by the Manx Gaelic Society in 1968.
