20:1For the kyngedom of heauen is lyke vnto an housholder, which went out early in the mornynge to hyre labourers into hys vyneyarde.
20:2And he agreed with the labourers for a peny a daye, and sent them into hys vyneyarde.
20:3And he went out about the .iij. houre, and saw other standing ydel in the market place,
20:4and sayd vnto them, go ye also into my vineyard: and whatsoeuer is right, I wil geue you. And they went theyr waye.
20:5Agayn he went out about the sixt and nynth houre and did likewise.
20:6And he went out about the eleuenth houre, and founde other standynge ydel, and sayde vnto theim: Why stande ye here all the day ydell?
20:7They sayde vnto hym: because no man hath hyred vs. He sayde to them go ye also into my vyneyarde, & whatsoeuer is right, that shall ye receyue.
20:8When euen was come, the Lorde of the vineyarde sayde vnto hys Stewarde: call the labourers, and geue them their hyer, beginning at the laste, tyll thou come to the first.
20:9And they whiche were hyred about the eleuenth houre, came and receyued euery man a peny.
20:10Then came the first, supposing that they should receyue more, and they lykewise receyued euery man a peny.
20:11And when they had receyued it, they murmured agaynst the good man of the house
20:12saying: These laste haue wrought but one houre, and thou haste made theym equall vnto vs whiche haue borne the burthen, and heat of the daye.
20:13He aunswered to one of them, saying: frende I do the no wrong: diddest thou not agre with me for a peny?
20:14Take that which is thy duety, and go thy waye, I will geue vnto thys laste as muche as to the.
20:15Is it not lawful for me to do as me lusteth with myne owne? Is thyne eye euel because I am good?
20:16So the laste shalbe firste, and the first shalbe laste. For many are called, and few be chosen.
20:17And Iesus ascended to Ierusalem and toke the .xij. disciples a parte in the way, and sayde to them:
20:18Beholde we go vp to Ierusalem, and the sonne of man shalbe betrayed vnto the chief priestes and vnto the scribes: and they shal condemne hym to death,
20:19and shall deliuer hym to the gentels, to be mocked, to be scourged, & to be crucified, and the thirde daye he shall rise agayne.
20:20Then came to him the mother of Zebedes chyldren with her sonnes, worshippyng hym and desiring a certayn thinge of hym.
20:21And he saide vnto her: what wilt thou haue? She said vnto hym: Graunt that these my two sonnes maye sitte, the one on thy right hande, and the other on the lift hande in thy kyngdome
20:22Iesus aunswered and sayde: Ye wotte not what ye are. Are ye able to drinke of the cup that I shall drynke of: and to be baptised with the baptisme that I shalbe baptised wt?
20:23They aunswered to hym: that we are. And he sayde vnto them: Ye shall drynke of my cup, & shal be baptised with the baptisme that I shalbe baptised with. But to sit on my right hande and on my lifte hande, is not myne to geue: but to them for whome it is prepared of my father.
20:24And when the ten hearde this, they disdayned at the two brethren.
20:25But Iesus called them vnto hym and sayd: Ye know that the Lordes of the gentils haue domination ouer them. And they that are great, exercyse power ouer them.
20:26It shall not be so amonge you. But whosoeuer wil be great amonge you, let hym be your minister,
20:27and whosoeuer wil be chief, let hym be your seruaunt,
20:28euen as the sonne of man came not to be minnistred vnto, but to minister, and to geue his life for the redempcion of many.
20:29And as they departed from Hiericho, much people folowed hym.
20:30And beholde two blynd men sitting by the way syde, when thei heard Iesus passe by, cryed saying: Thou Lord the sonne of Dauid haue mercy on vs.
20:31And the people rebuked theym: because they shoulde holde their peace. But they cried the more sayinge: Haue mercy on vs thou Lord which art the sonne of Dauid.
20:32Then Iesus stode styll, & called them, and sayde: What will ye that I shoulde do to you?
20:33Thei sayde to him: Lorde, that our eyes maye be opened.
20:34Iesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes. And immediatly their eyes receiued sight. And thei folowed him.

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.
