Matthew's Bible 1537



3:1Ther was a man of the Pharises named Nicodemus a ruler amonge the Iewes.
3:2The same came to Iesus by nyghte & sayed vnto him: Rabbi, we knowe that thou art a teacher whiche art come from God. For no man coulde do such miracles as thou doest, except God were wt him.
3:3Iesus aunswered & said to him: verely verely, I said vnto the: except a man be borne a new, he can not se the kingdome of God.
3:4Nicodemus said vnto him: how can a man be borne when he is olde? can he enter into his mothers wombe and be borne againe?
3:5Iesus aunswered: verely, verely, I saye vnto the: except that a man be boren of water and of the spyryte, he can not enter into the kyngdome of God.
3:6That whyche is borne of the fleshe is fleshe: and that whiche is borne of the spyryte, is spyrite.
3:7Marueyle not that I said to the, ye must be borne a newe.
3:8The wynde bloweth wher it listeth: and thou hearest the sounde therof: but canst not tell whence it cometh and whyther it goeth: So is euery man that is borne of the spyryte.
3:9And Nicodemus aunswered and said vnto him: how can these thinges be?
3:10Iesus aunswered & said vnto him: art thou a maister in Israel, and knowest not these thinges?
3:11Verely, verely, I say vnto the we speake that we know and testify that we haue sene, & ye receiue not our witnes.
3:12Yf when I tel you earthly thinges ye beleue not: howe shoulde ye beleue if I shal tell you of heauenly thinges?
3:13And no man ascendeth vp to heauen, but he that came doune from heauen, that is to say, the sonne of man which is in heauen.
3:14And as Moyses lyfte vp the serpent in the wyldernes, euen so muste the sonne of man be lyft vp,
3:15that none that beleueth in him perish, but haue eternall life.
3:16For God so loueth the worlde, that he hath geuen his only sonne, that none that beleue in him, should perishe: but should haue euerlastinge lyfe.
3:17For God sent not his sonne into the world, to condempne the worlde: but that the world through him, might be saued.
3:18He that beleueth on him, shal not be condempned. But he that beleueth not is condempned allready, because he beleueth not in the name of the onlye sonne of God.
3:19And this is the condempnacion, that light is come into the worlde, and the men loued darknes more then lyght, because their dedes were euyll.
3:20For euerye man that euyll doth, hateth the light: nether commeth to the lyghte: lest his dedes shoulde be reproued.
3:21But he that doeth truth commeth to the light that hys dedes myght be knowen, how that they are wrought in God.
3:22After these thinges came Iesus & his dysciples into the Iewes lande, and ther he haunted wyth them & baptised.
3:23And Iohn also baptysed in Enon besides Salim, because ther was much water there, & they came and were baptised.
3:24For Iohn was not yet cast into pryson.
3:25And ther arose a question betwene Iohns disciples and the Iewes aboute purifyinge.
3:26And they came vnto Iohn, and sayed vnto hym: Rabbie, he that was with the beyond Iordan, to whom thou bareste witnes, Beholde the same baptyseth, and al men come to him.
3:27Iohn aunswered, and sayed: a man can receiue nothing at al except it be geuen him from heauen.
3:28Ye youre selues are witnesses how that I saide: I am not Christ, but am sent before him.
3:29He that hath the bryde is the brydegrome. But the frend of the brydegrom, whiche standeth by and heareth him reioyseth greatlye of the brydegromes voyce. Thys my ioye is fulfilled.
3:30He muste increace: and I muste decreace.
3:31He that commeth from an hye is aboue al. He that is of the earth, is of the earth, & speaketh of the earth. He that commeth from heauen, is aboue all,
3:32and what he hath sene and hearde: that he testifyeth: but no man receiueth his testimony.
3:33Howbeit he that hath receiueth his testimony hath set to his seale that God is true.
3:34For he whom God hath sent, speaketh the wordes of God: For God geueth not the spirite by measure.
3:35The father loueth the sonne and hath geuen all thinges into his hand.
3:36He that beleueth on the sonne, hath euerlasting life, and he that beleueth not the sonne shall not se life: but the wrath of God abydeth on him.

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.
