22:1And Iesus answered, and spake vnto them agayne in symylytudes sayinge.
22:2The kyngdome of heauen is like vnto a certayne kynge, whiche maryed hys sonne,
22:3and sent forth hys seruauntes to call them that were byd to the wedding, & they woulde not come.
22:4Agayne he sent forth other seruauntes saynge. Tell them which are bydden: beholde I haue prepared my dyner, myne oxen and my fatlynges are kylled, and all thinges are redy, come vnto the mariage.
22:5But they made lyght of it, and went theyr wayes: one to hys ferme place, an other about hys marchaundyse,
22:6the remnaunt toke hys seruauntes and intreated them vngodly and slewe them.
22:7When the kynge hearde that, he was wrothe and sente forthe hys warryers and destroyed those murtherers and brent vp theyr citie.
22:8Then sayde he to hys seruauntes: the wedding was prepared. But they which were bidden: were not worthye.
22:9Go ye therfore out into the hye waies, & as many as ye finde byd them to the mariage.
22:10The seruauntes went out into the hye wayes, and gaddered together as many as they could fynde. Both good & bad, and the weddynge was furnyshed with gestes.
22:11Then the kynge came in, to viset the gestes, and spyed there a man which had not on a weddynge garment,
22:12and sayd vnto hym, frend howe fortuned it that thou camest in hyther, and hast not on a weddinge garmente? And he was euen speachlesse.
22:13Then sayed the kynge to hys mynisters: take and bynde hym hande and fote, and caste hym into vtter darcknes, there shal be weping and gnashing of teeth.
22:14For manye are called and fewe be chosen.
22:15Then went the pharises and toke counsell how they myght tangle hym in hys wordes.
22:16And they sent vnto hym theyr discyples with Herodes seruauntes sayinge: Mayster, we knowe that thou art true, & teachest the waye of God truely: neither carest for any man, for thou considerest not mennes estate.
22:17Tel vs therfor how thinkest thou. Is it lawful to giue tribute vnto Cesar or not?
22:18Iesus perceyued theyr wickednes, & sayd: Why tempt ye me ye hypocrites?
22:19Let me se the tribute money. And they toke him a peny.
22:20And he sayd vnto them: whose is thys ymage & superscripcion?
22:21They sayed vnto him: Cesars. Then sayed he vnto them: Gyue therfore to Cesar, that which is Cesars: And gyue vnto God, that which is Goddes.
22:22When they hearde that they maruayled, and left hym, and went theyr waye.
22:23The same day the Saduces came to hym (which say that there is no resurreccion) axed him
22:24saying: Mayster, Moyses bad, yf a man dye hauyng no chyldren, that the brother marye hys wyfe, and reyse vp seed vnto hys brother.
22:25There were with vs seuen brethren, and the fyrst maryed and dyseased without yssue and left hys wyfe vnto his brother.
22:26Like wyse the second and the thyrde vnto the seuenth.
22:27Last of all the woman dyed also.
22:28Nowe in the resurreccyon whose wyfe shall she be of these seuen? For all had her.
22:29Iesus answered & sayd vnto them: ye are deceyued and vnderstande not the scriptures, nor yet the power of God.
22:30For in the resurrection they nether marye nor are maryed: but are as the angels in heauen.
22:31As touchyng the resurreccion of the dead: haue ye not reade what is sayd vnto you of God which sayth:
22:32I am Abrahams God, and Isaacks God. & the God of Iacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the liuynge.
22:33And when the people hearde that, they were astonyed at hys doctrine.
22:34When the Pharises had hearde, how that he had put the Saduces to silence, they drewe together,
22:35and one of them whiche was a doctoure of lawe, axed a question temptyng hym and sayinge:
22:36Mayster which is the chief commaundement in the lawe?
22:37Iesus sayd to him: Loue the Lord thy God with all thyne herte, and with all thy soule, and with al thy mynd.
22:38This is the fyrst and the chiefe commaundement.
22:39And there is another lyke vnto thys. Loue thy neyghboure as thy selfe.
22:40In these two commaundementes hange all the lawe & the Prophetes.
22:41Whyle the pharyses were gaddered together. Iesus axed them
22:42saying: what thynke ye of Christ? Whose sonne is he? They sayed vnto him: the sonne of Dauid.
22:43He sayed vnto them: how then doeth Dauid in sprite, call him Lorde, sayenge:
22:44The Lorde sayed to my Lord sit on my righthande: tyl I make thyne enemyes thy fotestole.
22:45If Dauid call hym Lorde, how is he than hys sonne?
22:46And none coulde aunswere hym agayne one worde, neyther durste any from that daye forth axe him any more question.

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.
