7:1And the Lorde said vnto Noe: Go in to the arcke bothe thou and all thy houshold. For the haue I sene ryghteous before me in this generacyon.
7:2Of all clene beastes take vnto the seuen of euery kynde, the male and female, & of vnclene beastes a payre, the male & his female:
7:3lykewyse of the byrdes of the ayre seuen of euery kynde, male and female to saue seed vpon all the erth.
7:4For seuen dayes hence wil I sende rayne vpon the erth .xl. dayes and .xl. nyghtes, and wyll destroy al maner of thynges that I haue made, from of the face of the erth.
7:5And Noe dyd accordynge to all that the Lorde commaunded hym:
7:6and Noe was .vi. hundred yere olde, when the floud of water came vpon the erth:
7:7and Noe went and hys sonnes and his wyfe & his sonnes wyues wt him, into the arcke from the water of the floud.
7:8And of clene beastes & of the beastes that ware vnclene, & of byrdes and of al that crepeth vpon the erth,
7:9came in by cooples of euery kynde vnto Noe into the arcke, a male & a female: euen as god commaunded Noe.
7:10And the seuenth day the waters of the floude came vpon the erth.
7:11In the .vi. hundred yere of Noes lyfe, in the seconde moneth, in the .xvij. daye of the moneth, that same day were al the founteynes of the great depe broken vp, & the wyndowes of heauen were opened,
7:12& there fel a rayne vpon the erth .xl. dayes & .xl. nyghtes.
7:13And the selfe same daye went Noe, Sem, Ham & Iapheth, Noes sonnes, & Noes wyf & the .iij. wyues of hys sonnes with them in to the arcke:
7:14bothe they & al maner of beastes in theyr kynde, and all maner of catell in their kynd, & al maner of wormes that crepe vpon the erth in their kynde, & al maner of byrdes in there kynde, & all maner of foules what soeuer had feders.
7:15And they came vnto Noe into the arcke by couples, of al flesh that had breth of lyfe in it.
7:16And they that came, came male & female of euery flesh acordyng as God commaunded him: & the Lorde shut the dore vpon hym.
7:17And the floud came .xl. dayes and .xl. nyghtes vpon the erth, & the water increased & bare vp the arcke, & it was lyfte vp from of the erth.
7:18And the water preuayled & increased exceadingly vpon the erth: & the arcke went vpon the toppe of the waters.
7:19And the waters preuailed excedingly aboue mesure vpon the erth, so that all the hye hylles whych are vnder all the partes of heauen were couered
7:20euen .xv. cubytes hye preuayled the waters, so that the hylles were couered.
7:21And all flesh that moued on the erth, both birdes, catell and beastes perysshed, with al that crepte on the erth and al men:
7:22so that al that had the breth of lyfe in the nostrels of it thorow out all that was on drye lande, dyed.
7:23Thus was destroyed al that was vpon the erth, both man, beastes, wormes and foules of the ayre, so that they were destroyed from the erth: saue Noe was reserued onlye and they that were with him in the arck.
7:24And the waters preuayled vpon the erth an hundred and .l. dayes.

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.
