6:1And it came to passe, whan men began to multyply vpon the erth, & had begat them daughters,
6:2that sonnes of god saw the daughters of men that they were fayre, and toke vnto them wyues, which they best lyked among them all.
6:3And the Lorde sayde: My spirite shall not alway striue wyth man, for they are flesh. Neuerthelesse I wyl geue them yet space, an .C. & .xx. yeres.
6:4There were tyrantes in the world in those dayes. For after that the chyldren of god had gone in, vnto the daughters of men, & had begotten them chyldren, the same chyldren were the mightiest of the world, & men of renowne.
6:5And whan the Lord saw that the wekednesse of man was encreased vpon the erth, & that al the ymaginacion & thoughtes of his hert was only euell contynually,
6:6he repented that he had made man vpon the erth, and sorowed in his hert.
6:7And sayd: I wyl destroy mankynde whych I haue made, from of the face of the erth: both man, beast, worme and foule of the ayre, for it repenteth me that I haue made them.
6:8But yet Noe founde grace in the syght of the Lord.
6:9These are the generacions of Noe. Noe was a ryghteous man & vncorrupte in hys tyme, & walked wt God.
6:10And Noe begat .iij. sonnes: Sem, Ham, & Iapheth.
6:11And the erth was corrupt in the syght of God, & was full of mischefe.
6:12And God loked vpon the erth, & lo it was corrupte: for all flesh had corrupte hys way vpon the erth.
6:13Than sayde God to Noe: the ende of all flesh is come before me, for the erth is full of their myschefe. And lo, I wyl destroye them with the erth.
6:14Make the an arcke of pyne tree, and make chaumbers in the arcke, and pitch it wythin & without wyth pytch.
6:15And of this facyon shalt thou make it. The length of the arcke shall be .iij. hundred cubytes, & the bredth of it .l. cubytes, & the hyeth of it .xxx. cubytes.
6:16A wyndow shalt thou make aboue in the arcke. And within a cubyte compasse shalt thou fynysh it. And the dore of the arcke shalt thou sette in the syde of it: & thou shalt make it with .iij. loftes one aboue another.
6:17For behold, I wyll bryng in a floud of water vpon the erth to destroye al flesh from vnder heauen, wherin breth of lyf is: so that all that is in the erth shal perysh.
6:18But I wyl make myne apoyntement wt the, that both thou shalt come into the arcke and thy sonnes, thy wyfe & thy sonnes wyues wt the.
6:19And of all that lyueth what so euer flesh it be, shalt thou brynge into the arcke, of euery thyng a payre, to kepe them a lyue wyth the. And male & female se that they be,
6:20of byrdes in their kynde, & of beastes in theyr kynde, & of all maner of wormes of the erth in theyr kynde: a payre of euery thynge shal come vnto the to kepe them a lyue.
6:21And take vnto the of all maner of meate that may be eaten and laye it vp in stoore by the, that it maye be meate bothe for the and for them:
6:22and Noe dyd acordyng to all that God commaunded him.

Matthew's Bible 1537

The Matthew Bible, also known as Matthew's Version, was first published in 1537 by John Rogers, under the pseudonym "Thomas Matthew". It combined the New Testament of William Tyndale, and as much of the Old Testament as he had been able to translate before being captured and put to death, with the translations of Myles Coverdale as to the balance of the Old Testament and the Apocrypha, except the Apocryphal Prayer of Manasses. It is thus a vital link in the main sequence of English Bible translations.
