Manx Gaelic (Gaelg) is the native language of the Isle of Man (Ellan Vannin), which a self-governing 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.

There was a translation of the Psalms of David (Psalmyn Ghavid) in metre into the Manx language by the Rev Robert Radcliffe and the Rev Matthias Curgey, two clergymen from the Isle of Man.  These were printed with the Manx Book of Common Prayer of 1768. Bishop Hildesley required that these were to be sung in churches.

This translation was digitised by British and Foreign Bible Society (BFBS) in 2015.
