Matthew's Bible 1537



12:1Then Iesus .vi. dayes before Easter, came to Bethanye where Lazarus was which was dead, and whom Iesus raysed from death.
12:2There they made hym a supper, & Martha serued: but Lazarus was one of them that sate at the table with hym.
12:3Then toke Mary a pounde of oyntment called Nardus, perfecte and precyous, and annoynted Iesus fete, and wepte hys fete with her heare, and the house was fylled wyth the sauoure of the oyntmente.
12:4Then sayed one of hys disciples named Iudas Iscarioth Simons sonne. whiche afterwarde betrayed him:
12:5why was not thys oyntment solde for thre .C. pens and geuen to the poore?
12:6Thys sayed he, not that he cared for the poore, but because he was a thiefe, and kepte the bagge, and bare that whiche was geuen.
12:7Then sayed Iesus Let her alone, agaynste the daye of my buriynge the kept it.
12:8The poore alwayes shall ye haue with you, but me shall ye not alwayes haue.
12:9Muche people of the Iewes had knoweledge that he was there, & they came not for Iesus sake onely, but that they myghte se Lazarus also whom he raysed from death:
12:10The hye priestes therfore helde a counsel, that they myght put Lazarus to death also,
12:11because that for hys sake many of the Iewes went away, and beleued on Iesus.
12:12On the morowe muche people that were come to the feast, when they hearde that Iesus shoulde come to Hierusalem,
12:13toke braunches of palme trees, and went and met hym, and cryed: Hosanna, blessed is he that in the name of the Lorde cometh kynge of Israell.
12:14And Iesus gotte a yong asse, and sate theron, accordynge to that which was wrytten,
12:15feare not doughter of Syon, beholde thy kynge cometh, sittynge on an asses colte.
12:16These thinges vnderstode not hys discyples at the fyrst: but when Iesus was glorifyed, then remembred they that suche thynges were written of him, and that suche thynges they had done vnto hym.
12:17The people that was with hym, when he called Lazarus out of hys graue, and raysed hym from death, bare recorde.
12:18Therfore met hym the people, because they hearde that he had done suche a myracle.
12:19The Phariseis therfore sayed amonge them selues: perceyue ye howe we preuayle nothing? beholde the worlde goeth awaye after hym.
12:20There were certayne Grekes among them, that came to praye at the feaste:
12:21the same came to Phylyppe which was of Bethsayda a citie in Galile, and desiered hym, saiynge: Syr we woulde fayne se Iesus.
12:22Phylip came and told Andrewe. And agayne Andrewe and Philip tolde Iesus.
12:23And Iesus aunswered them sayinge: The houre is come that the sonne of man must be glorifyed.
12:24Verelye verelye I saye to you, excepte the wheate corne fall into the grounde and dye, it bydeth alone. If it dye, it bringeth forth much frute.
12:25He that loueth hys lyfe, shall destroy it: and he that hateth hys lyfe in this world, shal kepe it vnto lyfe eternall.
12:26If any man minister vnto me, let hym folowe me, and where I am, there shal also my minister be. And yf any man minister vnto me, hym wyll my father honoure.
12:27Nowe is my soule troubled, and what shal I saye? Father delyuer me from thys houre: but therfore came I vnto thys houre.
12:28Father, glorifye thy name. Then came there a voyce from heauen: I haue glorifyed it, and wil glorifye it agayne.
12:29Then sayde the people that stode by, and hearde: it thoundreth, Other sayd an angell spake to him.
12:30Iesus aunswered and sayed: thys voyce came, not because of me, but for your sakes.
12:31Now is the iudgement of thys world: now shall the prince of thys worlde be caste oute.
12:32And I, yf I were lyft vp from the earth, will drawe all men vnto me.
12:33This sayde Iesus, signifyenge what death he shoulde dye.
12:34The people aunswered hym: We haue hearde oute of the lawe, that Christe bydeth euer: and howe sayest thou then that the sonne of man muste be lyfte vp? who is that sonne of man?
12:35Then Iesus sayed vnto them: yet a lyttell whyle is the lyght with you. Walke, whyle ye haue lyght, lest the darcknes come on you. He that walketh in the darcke, woteth not whether he goeth.
12:36Whyle ye haue lyghte, beleue on the lyght, that ye maye be the chyldren of light. These thynges spake Iesus, and departed, and hyd hym selfe from them.
12:37And though he had done so many myracles before them, yet beleued not they on hym,
12:38that the saiynge of Esayas the Prophete myght be fulfylled, that he spake. Lorde, who shall beleue our saiyng? And to whome is the arme of the Lorde opened?
12:39Therfore coulde they not beleue, because that Esayas sayth agayne:
12:40he hath blynded theyr eyes and hardened theyr hertes, that they shoulde not se with theyr eyes, and vnderstand with theyr hertes, and shoulde be conuerted, and I shoulde heale them.
12:41Such thynges said Esayas when he sawe hys glorye, and spake of hym.
12:42Neuerthelesse among the chief rulers many beleued on hym. But because of that Pharyses they woulde not be a knowen of it, least they shoulde be excommunicate,
12:43for they loued the prayse, that is geuen of men, more then the prayse that commeth of God.
12:44And Iesus cryed and sayde: he that beleueth on me, beleueth not on me, but on hym that sente me.
12:45And he that seeth me, seeth hym that sent me.
12:46I am come a lyght into the worlde, that whosoeuer beleueth on me, shoulde not byde in darknes.
12:47And yf anye man heare my wordes, & beleue not, I iudge him not. For I came not to iudge the worlde, but to saue the worlde.
12:48He that refuseth me, and receiueth not my wordes, hath one that iudgeth hym. The wordes that I haue spoken, they shall iudge hym in the laste day.
12:49For I haue not spoken of my selfe: but the father which sent me, he gaue me a commaundement what I shoulde say, & what I should speake.
12:50And I knowe that thys commaundement is lyfe euerlasting. Whatsoeuer I speake therfore, euen as the father bade me, so I speake.

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.
