28:1The Saboth daye at euen which dauneth the morowe after the saboth. Mary Magdalene, & the other Marye came to se the sepulchre.
28:2And beholde there was a great earthquake. For the aungell of the Lorde descended from heauen: & came & rowled backe the stone from the dore, and sat vpon it.
28:3His countenaunce was lyke lyghtnyng, & his raymente whyte as snowe.
28:4And for feare of him the kepers were astonnied and became as dead men.
28:5The aungel aunswered & sayd to the women: feare ye not. I knowe that ye seke Iesus, whiche was crucifyed:
28:6he is not here: he is rysen as he sayd. Come & se the place where the Lord was put,
28:7& go quickly & tel hys discyples that he is rysen from death. And behold, he wil go before you into Galile, there ye shall se hym. Lo, I haue tolde you.
28:8And thei departed quickly from the sepulchre with feare & greate ioye: & dyd runne to bring hys disciples word.
28:9And as they went to tell hys disciples: beholde, Iesus met them saying al hayle. And they came & helde him by the fete and worshypped him.
28:10Then sayde Iesus vnto them: be not afrayd. Go and tel my brethren that they go into Galile, & there shal they se me.
28:11When they were gone: beholde, some of the kepers came into the citye, & shewed vnto the hye Priestes all the thynges that were happened.
28:12And they gathered them together with the elders, and toke counsel, & gaue large money vnto the souldiers,
28:13sayinge: Saye that his discyples came by night, & stole hym away whyle ye slept:
28:14and yf thys come to the rulers eares, we wyll pease him, & saue you harmles.
28:15And they toke the money & did as thei were taughte. And this saiynge is noysed amonge the Iewes vnto thys daye.
28:16Then the .xi. disciples wente away into Galile, into a mountayne wher Iesus had appointed them.
28:17And when they sawe hym they worshipped hym. But some of them doubted.
28:18And Iesus came and spake vnto them saiynge: all power is geuen vnto me in heauen and in earth.
28:19Go therfore & teache all nacyons, baptisyng them in the name of the father, and the sonne, & the holye ghoste.
28:20Teachyng then to obserue all thynges whatsoeuer I commaunded you, And lo I am with you alwaye, euen vntyll the ende of the worlde.

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.
