West Frisian (Frisian or Frysk) is a West Germanic language (and one of three Frisian languages) spoken in the north of the Netherlands.
It is the West Germanic language that is closest to English.
Yn it oanbigjin skoep God de himel en de ierde.
In the beginning, God created heaven and the earth.
De ierde lykwols wier wyldens en woastens, en tsjusternis laei oer ’e djipte, en Gods Geast wier sweevjende oer de wetters.
The earth, however, was desolate and desolate, and darkness was upon the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
En God sei: Der sij ljocht! En der waerd ljocht.
And God said, Let there be light,” and there was light.
The bible in West Frisian (as translated by Geart Aeilco Wumkes).
