27:1Then the Lorde with his heauye, great, & longe swerd shall vyset Leuyathan that inuyncible serpent: euen Leuiathan that croked serpent & shall slaye the whalfysh in the sea.
27:2At the same tyme shal men synge of the vyneyarde of Muscatel.
27:3I the Lorde kepe it, and water in it due ceason. I watche daye and nyght, that no man breake into it. I beare no euil wil in my mynd.
27:4Who wyll compell me, that I greatly forgettynge all faythfulnesse, shulde burne it vp at ones with thornes & bushes?
27:5Or who wyll enforce me to kepe or make peace.
27:6It wyll come to thys poynte, that Iacob shalbe roted agayne, & Israel shallbe grene, and beare floures, and they shall fyll the whole worlde with theyr frute.
27:7Smyteth he not hys smyter, as euyl as he is smyten him selfe: Destroyeth he not the murtherers, as he is murthered?
27:8Euery man recompenseth with the measure that he receyueth: He museth vpon hys sore wynde, as vpon the dayes of extreame heate.
27:9And therfor shall the iniquite of Iacob be thus reconcyled. And so shall he take away all the frute of hys sinnes. As for aulter stones, he shall make them all as stones beaten to poulder: the groues & Idols shall not stande.
27:10The stronge cytyes shalbe desolate, & the fayre cytyes shalbe lefte lyke a wyldernes. The cattell shall fede and lye there, & the shepe shall eate it vp.
27:11Theyr haruest shalbe brente, theyr wyues which were theyr bewtye when they came forth: shalbe defyled. For it is a people wythout vnderstandynge, & therfore he that created them, shall not fauoure them, and he that made them shal not be mercyful to them.
27:12In that time shal the Lorde shute from the swyfte water of Euphrates, vnto the ryuer of Egypte. And there shal the chyldren be chosen oute one by one.
27:13Then shall the greate trompette be blowen, so that those whiche haue bene destroyed in the Assyryans lande, and those that be scatred abroad in Egypte: shall come and worshyppe the Lord at Ierusalem, vpon the holy mount.

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.
