10:1And he called his .xij. Disciples vnto him & gaue theym power ouer vncleane spyrytes, to caste them out, and to heale all maner of sycknesses, and al maner of diseases.
10:2The names of the .xij. Apostles are these. The fyrst Simon called also Peter: and Andrewe his brother. Iames the sonne of Zebede, and Iohn his brother:
10:3Philip and Bartlemew. Thomas and Mathewe the publican. Iames the sonne of Alphe, and Lebbius otherwyse called Taddeus.
10:4Symon of Cane, and Iudus Iscarioth which also betrayed hym.
10:5These .xij. sent Iesus forth after he had geuen to them commaundement sainge Go not into the wayes that lead to the gentyls, & into the cityes of the Samaritanes enter ye not.
10:6But go rather to the lost shepe of the house of Israel.
10:7Go and preache sayinge: that the kingdome of heauen is at hande.
10:8Heale the sicke, clense the lepers, raise the dead, cast out the deuils. Frely ye haue receyued, frely geue againe.
10:9Possesse not golde, nor syluer, nor brasse in your girdles,
10:10nor yet scrip towardes your yourney: neither two cotes neyther shues, nor yet a staste. For the worck man is worthye to haue his meate.
10:11Into whatsoeuer citye or toune ye shall come enquire who is worthye in it, & there abyde tyl ye go thence
10:12And when ye come into an house salute the same.
10:13And if the house be worthy, your peace shall come vpon it. But if it be not worthy, your peace shall retourne to you againe.
10:14And whosoeuer shall not receiue you, nor wyll heare your preachinge: when ye departe out of that house or that cytye, shake of the duste of your fete.
10:15Truly I say vnto you: it shalbe easyer for the lande of Sodoma & Gomorra in the daye of iudgement then for that citie.
10:16Beholde I sende you forth as shepe among wolues. Be ye therfore wyse as serpentes, and innocent as doues.
10:17Beware of men, for they shall delyuer you vp to the counsels, and shall stourge you in their synagoges.
10:18And ye shalbe brought to the head rulers and kinges for my sake, in witnes to them & to the gentyls.
10:19But when they deliuer you vp take no thought howe or what ye shall speake, for it shalbe geuen you, euen in that same houre, what ye shal saye.
10:20For it is not ye that speake, but the sprete of your father which speaketh in you.
10:21The brother shall betraye the brother to death, and the father the sonne. And the children shall aryse againste their fathers & mothers, and shall put them to death:
10:22and ye shal be hated of all men for my name. But he that endureth to the ende shalbe saued.
10:23When they persecute you in one citye, flye into another. I tell you for a truthe, ye shall not fynishe all the cityes of Israel, tyl the sonne of man become.
10:24The discyples is not aboue his master: nor yet the seruaunt aboue his Lorde.
10:25It is ynough for the discyple to be as his master is, and that the seruaunt be as hys Lorde is. If they haue called the good man of the house him selfe belzebub: how muche more shal they call them of his housholde so?
10:26Fear them not therfore. Therfore is nothinge so close, that shal not be opened, & nothing so hid, that shal not be knowen.
10:27What I tell you in darkenes, that speake ye in light. And what ye heare in the eare, that preache ye on the house toppes.
10:28And feare ye not them which kil the body, and be not able to kill the soule. But rather feare him, which is able to destroy both soule & body into hell.
10:29Are not two sparowes solde for a farthyng? And none of them doth lyght on the grounde, without your father.
10:30And now are all that heires of your heades numbred.
10:31Feare ye not therfore: ye are of more value then many sparowes.
10:32Whosoeuer therfore shall acknowlege me before men, hym will I acknowledge also before my father which is in heauen.
10:33But whosoeuer shall deny me before men, hym will I also deny before my father which is in heauen.
10:34Thinke not that I am come to sende peace into the earth. I came not to sende peace but a swerd.
10:35For I am come to set a man at variaunce agaynst hys father, and the doughter against her mother, and the doughterlaw against her motherlaw:
10:36And a mans fooes shall be they of hys owne housholde.
10:37He that loueth hys father, or mother more then me, is not mete for me. And he that loueth hys sonne or doughter more then me, is not mete for me.
10:38And he that taketh not hys crosse & foloweth me, is not mete for me.
10:39He that findeth hys lyfe, shal loose it: and he that looseth hys lyfe for my sake, shall fynde it.
10:40He that receyueth you, receyueth me: & he that receyueth me, receiueth him that sent me,
10:41He that receyueth a Prophet in the name of a prophet, shall receyue a prophetes reward. And he that receyueth a righteouse man in the name of a righteous man, shal receyue the rewarde of a righteous man.
10:42And whosoeuer shall geue vnto one of these lytle ones to drinke, a cuppe of colde water only, in the name of a discypell: I tell you of a truthe, he shall not lose his rewarde.

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.
