Matthew's Bible 1537

 

   

18:1The same tyme the disciples came vnto Iesus sayinge: who is the greatest in the kyngdom of heauen
18:2Iesus called a chylde vnto hym, and set hym in the middes of them:
18:3and sayde. Verely I saye vnto you: excepte ye tourne, and become as chyldren, ye cannot enter into the kyngedome of heauen.
18:4Who soeuer therfore humble hym selfe as thys chylde, the same is the greatest in the kyngedom of heauen.
18:5And whosoeuer receyueth suche a chylde in my name, receyueth me.
18:6But whosoeuer offende one of these litelone, whych beleue in me: it were better for hym, that a milstone were hanged about his necke, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
18:7Wo be vnto the worlde because of offences. Howe be it, it cannot be auoyded but that offences shall be geuen. Neuerthelesse woo be to the man, by whome the offence cometh.
18:8Wherfore if thy hande or thy fote offende the, cut hym of and cast hym from the. It is better for the to enter into lyfe halte or maymed, rather then thou shouldest hauinge two handes or two fete, be cast into euerlastynge fyre.
18:9And if also thyne eye offende the, plucke hym out and cast hym from the. It is better for the to entre into lyfe with one eye, then hauyng two eyes to be cast into hell fyre.
18:10Se that ye not dispise not one of these litelones. For I saye vnto you, that in heauen their aungels alwaies behold the face of my father which is in heauen.
18:11Yea, and the sonne of man is come to saue that whych is lost.
18:12Howe thynke ye? If a man haue an hundred shepe, & one of them be gone astray, doth he not leaue nynty and nyne in the mountaynes, and go & seke that one whych is gone astraye.
18:13If it happen that he fynde him, verely I say vnto you: he reioyseth more of that shepe, then of the nyntye and nyne, which went not astray.
18:14Euen so it is not the wil of your father in heauen, that one of these litelons shoulde perish.
18:15Moreouer, if thy brother trespase agaynst the, Go and tell hym hys fault betwene hym and the alone. If he heare the, thou hast wonne thy brother.
18:16But if he heare the not, then take yet with the one or two, that in the mouthe of two or thre witnesses, all thynges may be stablished.
18:17If he heare not them, tell it vnto the congregacion. If he heare not the congregacion, take hym as a Heathen man, & as a publican.
18:18Verely I saye vnto you, whatsoeuer ye bynde on earth, shalbe bounde in heauen. And whatsoeuer ye lowse on erth, shalbe lowsed in heauen.
18:19Agayne I say vnto you, that if two of you shall agre in earth vpon any maner thyng whatsoeuer they shall desire: it shalbe geuen them of my father whyche is in heauen.
18:20For where two or thre are gathered together in my name, there am I in the middes of them.
18:21Then came Peter to hym, & sayde: master howe ofte shall I forgeue my brother, if he synne agaynst me, seuen tymes?
18:22Iesus sayde vnto hym: I say not vnto the seuen times: but seuenty times seuen tymes.
18:23Therefore is the kyngedom of heauen lykened vnto a certayne kyng, whithe woulde take a countes of hys seruauntes.
18:24And when he had begon to recken: one was broughte vnto hym: which ought hym ten thousand talentes,
18:25whome because he had noughte to paye, hys master commaunded him to be solde, and his wyfe, and hys chyldren, and all that he had, & payment to be made.
18:26The seruaunt fel doune and besought hym sayinge: Syr geue me respyte, and I will paye it euery whyt.
18:27Then had the Lord pitye on that seruaunt, & lowsed him and forgaue hym the dette.
18:28And the sayd seruaunt went out & found one of hys felowes, which ought him an hundred pence, & layed handes on him, & toke hym by the throote sayinge: paye me that thou owest.
18:29And hys felowe fell doune & besoughte hym, saying: haue pacience with me, and I wil pay the all.
18:30But he woulde not, but wente and cast hym into pryson till he shoulde pay the det.
18:31When hys other felowes sawe what was done, they were very sory, and came and told vnto theyr Lord all that had happened.
18:32Then his Lorde called hym, and sayde vnto hym. O euill seruaunt I forgaue the al that det, because thou praiest me:
18:33was it not mete also that thou shouldest haue had compassion on thy felow, euen as I had pitie on the?
18:34And his lord was wroth and deliuered him to the iaylers, til he should paye all that was due to hym.
18:35So likewyse shal my heauenly father do vnto you except ye forgeue with your hertes, eache one to hys brother theyr trespasses.

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.
