23:1Then spake Iesus to the people, and to his disciples,
23:2saying: The Scribes and the Pharises syt in Moses seate.
23:3All therfore whatsoeuer they byd you obserue, that obserue and do: but do not ye after theyr workes:
23:4for they saye, and do not. Yee, they bynde together heuy burthens and greuous to be borne, & laye them on mennes shoulders: but they them selues wyll not heaue at them with one of their fyngers.
23:5All theyr worckes do they for the intent, that they maye be sene of men. They set abroade their philateries, & make large the borders of their garmentes,
23:6& loue the vppermoste seates at feastes, & to sytt in the chefe place in councels,
23:7& gretynges in the markett, and to be called of men, Rabbi.
23:8But be not ye called Rabbi. For one is youre master, euen Chryst, and all ye are brethren.
23:9And call no man youre father vpon the erth, for one is your father which is in heauen
23:10Nether be ye called masters, for one is youre master, euen Chryst.
23:11He that is greatest amonge you, shalbe youre seruaunt.
23:12But whosoeuer exalteth him selfe? shalbe brought lowe. And he that humbleth him selfe, shalbe exalted.
23:13Wo vnto you Scribes & Pharises, ye ypocrites, for ye shutt vp the kyngdome of heauen before men ye nether go in your selues, nether suffre ye them that come, to enter in.
23:14Wo vnto you Scribes, & pharises, ye ypocrites: for ye deuoure wyddowes houses: and that vnder a pretence of longe prayer: therfore shall ye be the sorer punysshed.
23:15Wo be vnto you Scrybes and Pharises, ye ypocrytes: for ye compasse see and lande, to make one proselyte: & when he is become one, ye make hym two folde moare the chylde of hell, then ye youre selues are.
23:16Wo be vnto you ye blynde gydes, ffor ye saye: whosoeuer doth sweare by the temple: it is nothynge: but whosoeuer sweareth by the golde of the temple, he is gyltye.
23:17Ye fooles & blinde: For whether is greater: the gold, or the temple that sanctifyeth the gold?
23:18And whosoeuer sweareth by the aultre, it is nothinge, but whosoeuer sweareth by the gyft that is vpon it, he is giltye,
23:19ye foles & blynd for whether is greater? the gyft: or the altare that sanctifieth the gyft?
23:20Whoso therfore sweareth by the aultre, sweareth by it, and by all thinges that are there on.
23:21And whoso sweareth by the temple, sweareth by it, & by hym that dwelleth therin.
23:22And he that sweareth by heauen, sweareth by the seate of God, and by hym that sytteth theron.
23:23Wo vnto you Scribes & Pharises, ye ypocrites: For ye tyth mynt, and anyse, & commyn, & haue leaft the wayghtier matters of the lawe: iudgement, mercy, & fayth. These ought ye to haue done, & not to leaue the other vndone.
23:24ye blynde gydes, which strayne out agnat, & swalowe a Camell.
23:25Wo vnto you Scrybes and pharises, ye ypocrites: for ye make cleane the vtter syde of the cuppe, & of the platter: but within they are full of brybery and excesse.
23:26Thou blynde Pharise, clense fyrst that whych is wt in the cup & platter, that the outesyde of them maye be cleane also.
23:27Wo vnto you Scrybes & pharises, ye ypocrites: for ye are lyke vnto painted sepulcres which in dede appeare beautifull outwarde but are wythin full of deed mens bones & of all fylthynes.
23:28Euen so ye also, outwardlye appere ryghteous vnto men: But wythin, ye are full of faynednesse and iniquyte.
23:29Wo vnto you Scribes and Pharises, ye ypocrites: ye buylde the tombes of the Prophetes, and garnysihe the sepulchres of the ryghteous,
23:30& saye: yf we had bene in the dayes of our fathers, we wolde not haue bene parteners wyth them in the bloude of the Prophetes.
23:31And so ye be wytnesses vnto youre selues, that ye are the chyldren of them whych kylled the prophetes.
23:32Fulfyll ye lykewyse the measure of your fathers.
23:33Ye serpentes, ye generacion of vypers, how wyll ye scape the damnacyon of hell?
23:34Wherfore beholde I sende vnto you Prophetes & wyse men, & scrybes, and some of them ye shall kyll & crucifye: & some of them shal ye scourge in youre synagoges, & persecute them from cytie to cytie:
23:35that vpon you maye come all the ryghteous bloude whych hath bene shedd vpoon the erthe, from the bloude of ryghteous. Abel, vnto the bloude of Zachary sonne of Barachias, whom ye slewe betwene the temple & the altare.
23:36Uerely I saye vnto you: all these thynges shall come vpon this generacion.
23:37O Ierusalem, Ierusalem, thou that kyllest the prophetes, & stonest them which are sent vnto the: how often wolde. I haue gathered thy chyldren together, euen as the henne gathereth her chyckens vnder her wynges, & ye wolde not?
23:38Beholde youre house is left vnto you desolate.
23:39For I saye vnto you: ye shall not se me hence forth, tyll that ye saye blessed is he, that commeth in the name of the Lorde.
The Great Bible 1539

The Great Bible 1539

The Great Bible of 1539 was the first authorized edition of the Bible in English, authorized by King Henry VIII of England to be read aloud in the church services of the Church of England. The Great Bible was prepared by Myles Coverdale, working under commission of Thomas, Lord Cromwell, Secretary to Henry VIII and Vicar General. In 1538, Cromwell directed the clergy to provide "one book of the bible of the largest volume in English, and the same set up in some convenient place within the said church that ye have care of, whereas your parishioners may most commodiously resort to the same and read it."
