Matthew's Bible 1537

 

   

39:1At the same tyme Merodach Baladam, Baladams sonne Kynge of Babylon, sent lettres and presentes to Hezekiah. For he vnderstode how that he had bene sick, and was recouered agayne.
39:2And Hezekiah was glad therof, and shewed them the commodytyes of hys treasure, of syluer, of golde, of spyces and rootes, of precyous oyles, all that was in hys cubbordes & treasure houses. There was not one thing in Hezekiahs house, & so thorow out all hys kyngdome, but he let them se it.
39:3Then came Esay the Prophete of Kynge Ezekiah, and sayde vnto hym. What haue the men sayde, & from whence came they vnto the? Hezekiah answered: they came out of a farre countre vnto me, out of Babylon.
39:4Esay sayd: what haue they loked vpon in thyne house? Hezekiah answered: All that is in myne house haue they sene: and there is nothinge in my treasure, but I shewed it them.
39:5Then sayde Esay vnto Hezekiah: Vnderstande the worde of the Lord of Hostes:
39:6Beholde the tyme wyll come, that euery thynge which is in thyne house, and al that thy progenytoures haue layde vp in stoare vnto this daye, shalbe caried to Babylon, & nothinge left behynde. Thys sayeth the Lorde.
39:7Yee & parte of thy sonnes, that shall come of the, & whom thou shalt get, shalbe caried hence, & become gelded chamberlaynes in the Kynge of Babylons courte:
39:8Then sayde Hezekiah to Esay: Now God prosper hys owne councell, which thou hast told me. He sayde more ouer: So that there be peace and faythfulnesse in my tyme.

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.
