17:1And after sixe daies Jhesus took Petre, and James, and Joon, his brother, and ledde hem aside in to an hiy hil,
17:2and was turned in to an othir licnesse bifor hem. And his face schone as the sunne; and hise clothis weren maad white as snowe.
17:3And lo! Moises and Elie apperiden to hem, and spaken with hym.
17:4And Petre answeride, and seide to Jhesu, Lord, it is good vs to be here. If thou wolt, make we here thre tabernaclis; to thee oon, to Moises oon, and oon to Elye. Yit the while he spak, lo!
17:5a briyt cloude ouerschadewide hem; and lo! a voice out of the cloude, that seide, This is my dereworth sone, in whom Y haue wel pleside to me; here ye hym.
17:6And the disciplis herden, and felden doun on her faces, and dredden greetli.
17:7And Jhesus cam, and touchide hem, and seide to hem, Rise vp, and nyle ye drede.
17:8And thei liften vp her iyen, and saien no man, but Jhesu aloone.
17:9And as thei camen doun of the hille, Jhesus comaundide to hem, and seide, Seie ye to no man the visioun, til mannus sone rise ayen fro deeth.
17:10And his disciplis axiden hym, and seiden, What thanne seien the scribis, that it bihoueth that Elie come first?
17:11He answeride, and seide to hem, Elie schal come, and he schal restore alle thingis.
17:12And Y seie to you, that Elie is nowe comun, and thei knewen hym not, but thei diden in him what euer thingis thei wolden; and so mannus sone schal suffre of hem.
17:13Thanne the disciplis vndurstoden, that he seide to hem of Joon Baptist.
17:14And whanne he cam to the puple, a man cam to hym, and felde doun on hise knees bifor hym, and seide,
17:15Lord, haue merci on my sone; for he is lunatike, and suffrith yuele, for ofte tymes he fallith in to the fier, and ofte tymes in to water.
17:16And Y brouyte hym to thi disciplis, and thei myyten not heele hym.
17:17Jhesus answeride, and seide, A! thou generacion vnbileueful and weiward; hou long schal Y be with you? hou long schal Y suffre you? Brynge ye hym hider to me.
17:18And Jhesus blamede hym, and the deuel wente out fro hym; and the child was heelid fro that our.
17:19Thanne the disciplis camen to Jhesu priueli, and seiden to hym, Whi myyten not we caste hym out?
17:20Jhesus seith to hem, For youre vnbileue. Treuli Y seie to you, if ye han feith, as a corn of seneueye, ye schulen seie to this hil, Passe thou hennus, and it schal passe; and no thing schal be vnpossible to you;
17:21but this kynde is not caste out, but bi preiyng and fastyng.
17:22And whilis thei weren abidynge togidere in Galilee, Jhesus seide to hem, Mannus sone schal be bitraied in to the hondis of men;
17:23and thei schulen sle hym, and the thridde day he schal rise ayen to lijf.
17:24And thei weren ful sori. And whanne thei camen to Cafarnaum, thei that token tribute, camen to Petre, and seiden to hym, Youre maister payeth not tribute?
17:25And he seide, Yhis. And whanne he was comen in to the hous, Jhesus cam bifor hym, and seide, Symount, what semeth to thee? Kyngis of erthe, of whom taken thei tribute? of her sones, ether of aliens?
17:26And he seide, Of aliens. Jhesus seide to hym, Thanne sones ben fre.
17:27But that we sclaundre hem not, go to the see, and caste an hook, and take thilke fisch that first cometh vp; and, whanne his mouth is opened, thou schalt fynde a stater, and yyue for thee and for me.

John Wycliffe Bible 1382

The Wycliffe Bible is the only Bible here that was not translated from the Textus Receptus. Its inclusion here is for the Bible's historic value and for comparison in the English language.

John Wycliffe, an Oxford professor produced the first hand-written English language Bible manuscripts in the 1380's. While it is doubtful Wycliffe himself translated the versions that bear his name, he certainly can be considered the driving force behind the project. He strongly believed in having the scriptures available to the people.

Wycliffe, was well-known throughout Europe for his opposition to the teaching of the organized Church, which he believed to be contrary to the Bible. With the help of his followers (called Lollards), Wycliffe produced dozens of English language manuscript copies of the scriptures. They were translated out of the Latin Vulgate, which was the only source text available to Wycliffe. The Pope was so infuriated by his teachings and his translation of the Bible into English, that 44 years after Wycliffe died, he ordered the bones to be dug-up, crushed, and scattered in the river.
