Matthew's Bible 1537
|And the Lord spake vnto Moses sayinge,
|speake vnto the chyldren of Israel and say vnto them: If any man wyl geue a singuler vowe vnto the Lord accordynge to the value of hys Soule,
|then shall the male from twentye yere vnto .lx. be sette at fyfty sycles of syluer, after the sycle of the sanctuary,
|& the female at .xxx. sicles.
|And from fiue yeares to twenty the male shall be set at twentye sycles, and the female at .x. sycles.
|And from a moneth vnto .v. yere the male shal be set at .v. sycles of syluer, & the female at thre.
|And the man that is .lx. and aboue, shal be valued at .xv. sycles, and the woman at .x.
|If he be to pore so to be set, then let hym come before the prieste: and let the prieste value hym accordinge as the hand of hym that vowed is able to get.
|If it be of the beastes of whych men bring an offeryng vnto the Lord: all that any man geueth of such vnto the lord, shalbe holy.
|He may not alter it nor chaunge it: a good for a bad or a bad for a good. If he chaunge beast for beaste, then both the same beast and it also wherwith it was chaunged shalbe holy.
|If it be any maner of vncleane beaste of which men maye not offer vnto the Lorde, let hym brynge the beaste before the priest
|& lette the priest value it. And whether it be good or badde as the prieste setteth it, so shall it be.
|And if he wyll bye it agayne, lette him giue the fyft part more to that it was set at.
|If any man dedicate his house, it shall be holy vnto the Lord. And the priest shall sette it, whether it be good or bad, & as the prieste hath set it, so it shalbe.
|If he that sanctified it wyll redeme his house, lette hym giue the fift part of the money that it was iudged at therto, and it shalbe hys.
|If a man halow a pece of hys enhereted lande vnto the Lorde, it shalbe set according to that it beareth. If it beare an homer of barlye, it shal be set at fyfty sycles of syluer.
|If he halow his feld immediatly that from the yere of iubely, it shal be worth according as it is estemed.
|But & if he halow his fyeld after the trumpet yere, the priest shall reken the price wyth him accordynge to the yeres that remayne vnto the trumpet yere, and therafter it shalbe lower set.
|If he that sanctified the field wyl redeme it agayne, let him putte the fyfte parte of the pryce that it was set at therunto,
|and it shall be hys, if he wyll not it shall be redemed no more.
|But when the fyelde goeth out in the yere of iubely, it shalbe holy vnto the Lord: euen as a thyng dedicated, and it shal be the priestes possession.
|If a man sanctify vnto the Lorde a field, whych he hath bought and is not of hys enheritaunce,
|then the prieste shall reken wyth him what it is worth vnto the yere of Iubely, & he shal gyue the price that it is set at the same day, and it shall be holy vnto the Lord.
|But in the yere of Iubely, the fyeld shal returne vnto hym of whom he bought it, whose enheritaunce of land it was.
|And al settynges shal be accordyng to the holy sycle. One sycle maketh .xx. Geras.
|But the fyrst borne of the beastes that pertayne vnto the Lorde, maye no man sanctify: whether it be oxe or shepe, for thei are the Lordes already.
|If it be an vncleane beaste, then lett hym redeme it as it is set at, & gyue the fyfte part more therto. If it be not redemed, then let it be sold as it is rated.
|Notwythstandynge no dedicated thynge that a man dedycateth vnto the Lorde, of all his good whether it be man or beast or lande of his enheritaunce, shalbe solde or redemed for all dedicate thynges are moste holy vnto the Lorde.
|No dedicate thynge therfore that is dedicate of man, may be redemed, but must nedes dye.
|All these tythes of the Lande, whether it be of the corne of the field or frute of the trees, shalbe holy vnto the Lord.
|If anye man wil redeme ought of hys tythes, lette hym adde the fyfte parte more thereto.
|And the tythes of oxen and sheepe and of all that goeth vnder the heardemans kepynge, shall be holye tythes vnto the Lorde.
|Men shall not loke if it be good or badde nor shall chaunge it. If any man chaunge it, then boeth it and that it was chaunged wythal, shal be holy & maye not be redemed.
|These are the commaundementes whyche the Lorde gaue Moses in charge to giue vnto the chyldren of Israell in mount Sinai.
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.
