Matthew's Bible 1537

 

   

12:1In that tyme went Iesus on the Saboth dayes thorowe the corne and his discyples were an hungred, and began to plucke the eares of corne and to eate.
12:2When the Phariseis sawe that they sayde vnto him: Beholde, thy discyples do that which is not laufwl to do vpon the saboth daye.
12:3He sayde vnto them: Haue ye not read what Dauid dyd, when he was an hungred, and they also whiche were with hym?
12:4How he entred into the house of God, & eate the halowed louwes, which were not lawful, for him to eate, neyther for them which were with him but onlye for the priestes.
12:5Or haue ye not read in the law, how that the pryestes in the temple breake the saboth day, and yet are blamlesse:
12:6But I say vnto you: that here is one greater then the temple.
12:7Wherfore if ye had wist what this sayinge meaneth: I require mercye and not sacrifyce: ye would neuer haue condemned innocentes:
12:8For the sonne of man is Lorde euen of the saboth day.
12:9And he departed thence, and went into their synagoge:
12:10and beholde there was a man which had his hande dryed vp. And they axed hym sayinge: is it lawful to heale vpon the saboth dayes? because they myght accuse him.
12:11And he sayd vnto them. Which of you wolde it be, if he had a shepe fallen into a pitte on the saboth daye, that woulde not take hym and lyft hym out?
12:12And how muche is a man better then a shepe? Wherfore it is lawful to do a good dede on the saboth dayes.
12:13Then sayde he to the man: stretch forth thy hande. And he stetched it forth. And it was made whole again lyke vnto the other.
12:14Then the pharyseis went out, and held a counsel against him, how they might destroy hym.
12:15When Iesus knewe that, he departed thence, and much people folowed hym, and he healed them all,
12:16and charged them, that they shoulde not make him knowen:
12:17to fulfyll that which was spoken by Esaye the prophete, which sayeth.
12:18Beholde my chylde, whom I haue chosen my beloued, in whom my soule delyteth. I wyll put my sprryte on him, and he shall shew iudgement to the gentils.
12:19He shall not striue, he shal not cry neither shal any man hear his voice in the stretes,
12:20a brosed rede shalnot he breake, & flaxe the beginneth to burne he shal not quenche, tyll he sende forth iudgemen vnto to victory,
12:21and in his name shall the gentyls truste.
12:22Then was brought to him, one possessed with a deuyll which was both blinde & dombe: and he healed him, insomuch that he which was blinde and dombe, both spake and sawe.
12:23And al the people were amased, and sayde: Is not this that sonne of Dauid?
12:24But when the Pharyseis hearde that they sayde: This felowe driueth the deuils no nother wyse out but by the helpe of Belzebub the chiefe of the deuils.
12:25But Iesus knewe their thoughtes, and sayed to them. Euery Kingdome deuided within it selfe, shall be brought to naught. Neyther shall anye cytye or housholde deuided against it selfe continue.
12:26So if sathan cast out sathan, then is he deuided againste him selfe Howe shall then his kingdome endure?
12:27Also if I by the helpe of belzabub cast out deuils: by whose helpe do your children caste them out? Therfore they shalbe your iudges.
12:28But if I cast out the deuyls by the sprete of God: then is the kingdome of God come on you?
12:29Eyther how can a man enter into a strong mans house, and violently take away his goodes: except he first binde the stronge man, and then spoyle his house?
12:30He that is not with me, is against me. And he that gathereth not with me, scattereth abrode.
12:31Wherfore I saye vnto you, all maner of synne and blasphemy of forgeuen vnto men: but the blasphemy of the sprete, shall not be forgeuen vnto men.
12:32And whosoeuer speaketh a worde against the sonne of man, it shall be forgeuen him. But whosoeuer speaketh againste the holye ghost, it shall not be forgeuen him: no, neyther in this worlde, neyther in the worlde to come.
12:33Either make the tree good, and his frute good also: or els make the tree euyll, and hys frute euyll also. For the tree is knowen by his frute.
12:34O generation of vipers, how can ye say well, when ye your selues are euil? For of the aboundaunce of the herte, the mouth speaketh.
12:35A good man out of the good treasure of hys herte, bringeth forth good thinges. And an euill man out of his euill treasure, bringeth forth euil thinges.
12:36But I say vnto you, that of euery idell worde that men shall haue spoken: they shall geue a countes at the daye of iudgement.
12:37For thy wordes thou shalt be iustified: & by thy wordes thou shalt be condemned.
12:38Then aunswered certaine of the scrybes and of the Phariseis sayinge. Master, we woulde fayne se a sygne of the.
12:39He aunswered and said to them: The euyll and aduouterous generation seketh a sygne, but there shal no sygne be geuen to them, saue the signe of the prophete Ionas.
12:40For as Ionas was thre dayes and thre nyghtes in the whales bellye: so shall the sonne of man be thre dayes and thre nyghtes in the herte of the earth.
12:41The men of Niniuye shall ryse at the daye of iudgement with this nacion, and condemne them: for thei amended at the preaching of Ionas: And beholde, a greater then Ionas is here.
12:42The quene of the south shall ryse at the daye of iudgement with this generacion, and shall condemne theim: for she came from the vttermost parties of the worlde to hear the wysdome of Salomon. And beholde a greater then Salomon is here.
12:43When the vncleane spirite is gone out of a man he walketh through out dry places, se kinge rest and fyndeth none.
12:44Then he sayth: I wyll retourne againe into my house, from whence I came out. And when he is come, he fyndeth the house empty and swepte and garnished.
12:45Then he goeth his way and taketh vnto him seuen other spirites worsse then hym selfe, and so enter they in and dwell there. And the ende of that man is worsse then the beginning. Euen so shall it be with this euill nacion.
12:46Whyle he yet talked to the people: beholde his mother and his brethren stode without, desyrynge to speake with hym.
12:47Then one sayd vnto: beholde thy mother and brethren stande without, desyrynge to speake with the.
12:48He aunswered and sayd to hym that tolde him: Who is my mother? Who are my brethren?
12:49And he stretched forth his hande ouer his disciples, and sayd: beholde my mother & my brethren.
12:50For whosoeuer doth my fathers wyll which is in heauen, the same is my brother, syster and mother.

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.
