23:1Then spake Iesus to the people, & to hys disciples
23:2sayinge: The Scribes and the Phariseis sit in Moyses seate.
23:3All therfore whatsoeuer they bid you obserue, that obserue and do, but after their workes do not,
23:4for they say and do not. Yea, and they bynd heauy burthens and greuous to be borne and lay them on mens shoulders: but they them selfs will not heaue at them with one of theyr fyngers.
23:5All their workes thei do for to be sene of men. They set abroade theyr philateries, & make large borders on theyr garmentes,
23:6and loue to sit vppermoste at feastes, and to haue the chiefe seates in the Synagoges,
23:7and gretynges in the markettes, and too be called of men Rabbi.
23:8But ye shall not suffer youre selues to be called Rabbi. For one is your master, that is to witte Christ, and all ye are brethreu.
23:9And call no man your father vpon the earth, for there is but one your father, & he is in heauen.
23:10Be not called masters: for there is but one your master: and he is Christ.
23:11He that is greatest amonge you: shalbe your seruaunt.
23:12But whosoeuer exalteth hym selfe: shalbe brought lowe, and he that humbleth hym selfe, shalbe exalted.
23:13Wo be vnto you Scribes and Phariseis, hypocrites, for ye shut vp the kyngdome of heauen before men: ye youre selues go not in, neyther suffer ye them that come to enter in.
23:14Wo be vnto you Scribes and Phariseis, hypocrites, ye deuoure wyddowes houses, & that vnder a coloure of praieng long prayers wherfore ye shall receyue great damnacion.
23:15Wo be vnto you Scribes and Phariseis hypocrites: which compasse sea and lande, to brynge one into youre belefe: and when he is brought ye make hym two folde more the chyld of hell: then ye your selues are.
23:16Wo be vnto you blynde guydes, whyche say whosoeuer sweare by the temple, it is nothing, but whosoeuer sweared by the golde of the temple: he offendeth.
23:17Ye fooles and blind, whither is greater, the golde, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold?
23:18And whosoeuer sweareth by the aultare, it is nothynge: but whosoeuer sweareth by the offeryng that lyeth on the aulter, offendeth.
23:19Ye fooles and blynde, whither is greater the offerynge, or the aulter whiche sanctifieth the offeryng?
23:20Whosoeuer therfore sweareth by the aultare, sweareth by it and by all that thereon is.
23:21And whosoeuer sweareth by the temple, sweareth by it and by hym that dwelleth therin.
23:22And he that sweareth by heauen sweareth by the seate of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.
23:23Wo be to you Scribes and Phariseis, hypocrites, which tythe mynte, anyse and commen, and leaue the wayghtyer matters of the lawe vndone: iudgement, mercy, and faythe. These ought ye to haue done, and not to haue lefte the other vndone.
23:24Ye blynde guydes whiche strayne out a gnat, and swallowe a cammell.
23:25Wo be to you Scribes and Pharises hypocrites, which make cleane the vtter side of the cuppe, & of the platter: but within they are ful of bribery and excesse.
23:26Thou blynd Pharisei, clense first the ynneside of the cup & platter, that the outside of them may be clene also.
23:27Wo be to you Scribes and Phariseis hypocrytes, for ye are lyke vnto paynted tombes, whiche appeare beautifull outwarde, but are within full of dead bones and of all filthines.
23:28So are ye, for outwarde ye apeare righteouse vnto men, when within, ye are full of hypocresie and iniquitie.
23:29Wo be vnto you Scribes and Phariseis hypocrites, ye buylde the tombes of the Prophetes and garnysh the sepulchres of the righteouse,
23:30and saye: if we had bene in the dayes of our fathers, we woulde not haue bene parteners with them in the bloude of the Prophetes.
23:31So then ye be witnesses to your selues, that ye are the chyldren of them whyche kylled the Prophetes.
23:32Fulfil ye likewyse the measure of your fathers.
23:33Ye serpentes and generacion of vppers howe shoulde ye scape the damnacion of hell?
23:34Wherfore, behold I send vnto you Prophetes, wise men, & Scribes. Of them ye shal kyl and crucifye: and of them ye shall scourge in your synagoges, and persecute from citye to citye
23:35that vpon you may come all the ryghtuous bloude that was shede vpon the earth, from the bloude of ryghtuous Abel, vnto the bloude of Zacharias the sonne of Barachias, whom ye slewe betwene the tempel and the aulter.
23:36Verely I say vnto you, al these things shall lyght vpon this generation.
23:37Ierusalem, Ierusalem which killest prophetes, and stone them which are sent to the: howe often would I haue gathered thy children together: as the henne gathered her chikens vnder her winges, but ye would not.
23:38Beholde your habitation shalbe left vnto you desolate.
23:39For I saye to you, ye shall not se me hence forth tyll that ye saye blessed is he that commeth in the name of the Lorde.

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.
