Matthew's Bible 1537

 

   

5:1Stande fast therfore in the lybertye wherewith Christ hath made vs free and wrappe not your selues againe in the yoke of bondage.
5:2Beholde I Paule saye vnto you, that yf ye be circumcysed Christe shall profyte you nothynge at all.
5:3I testifye agayne to euery man whiche is circumcysed that he is bounde to kepe the whole lawe.
5:4Ye are gone quyte from Christe as manye as are iustifyed by the law, and are fallen from grace.
5:5We loke for, and hope in the spiryte, to be iustifyed thorow fayth.
5:6For in Iesu Christ nether is circumcysion any thing worth, neyther yet vncircumcysyon, but fayth which by loue is myghtye in operacyon.
5:7Ye dyd runne wel: who was a let to you, that ye shoulde not obeye the trueth?
5:8Euen that counsell that is not of hym that called you.
5:9A lytell leuen doeth leuen the whole lumpe of dowe.
5:10I haue trust towarde you in the Lorde, that ye wyll be none otherwyse mynded. He that troubleth you, shall beare hys iudgemente, whatsoeuer he be.
5:11Brethren, yf I yet preache circumcysyon: why do I yet suffer persecutyon? For then had the offence whiche the crosse geueth, ceased.
5:12I woulde to God they were separated from you, whiche trouble you.
5:13Brethren ye were called into lybertye onelye let not youre lybertye be an occasyon vnto the fleshe, but in loue serue one another.
5:14For all the lawe is fulfylled in one worde: whiche is thys: thou shalte loue thyne neyghboure as thy selfe.
5:15Yf ye byte and deuour one another: take hede leaste ye be consumed one of another.
5:16I saye: walke in the spyryte, and fulfyl not the lustes of the fleshe.
5:17For the flesh lusteth contrarye to the spirite, and the spirite contrarye to the fleshe. These are contrarye one to the other, so that ye cannot do that which ye would.
5:18But and yf ye be led of the spyryte, then are ye not vnder the lawe.
5:19The dedes of the flesh are manyfeste, which are these aduoutrye, fornicacyon, vncleannes, wantonnes,
5:20Idolatrye wytchecrafte, hatred, varyaunce, zele, wrathe stryfe, sedityon, sectes,
5:21enuiynge, murther, drounkennes, glottonye, and suche lyke: of the whiche I tell you before, as I haue tolde you in tymes past, that they whiche commytte suche thynges shall not enheryte the kingdome of God.
5:22But the frute of the spiryte, is loue, ioye peace, longe sufferynge, gentylnes, goodnes, faithfulnes,
5:23mekenes, temperauncye. Against suche there is no lawe.
5:24They that are Christes haue crucyfyed the fleshe with the appetytes and lustes.
5:25If we lyue in the spyryte: let vs walke in the spyryte.
5:26Let vs not be vayne gloryouse, prouokynge one another, and enuyinge one another.

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.
