Matthew's Bible 1537



1:1These be the wordes whyche Moses spake vnto all Israel, on the other syde Iordan in the wyldernesse and in the feeldes by the red sea, betwene Pharan and Tophel, Laban, Hazeroth and Disahah
1:2.xi. dayes iourney from Horeb vnto Cades barne, by the way that leadeth vnto mount Seir.
1:3And it fortuned the fyrst daye of the .xi. moneth in the fortieth yere that Moses spake vnto the chyldren of Israel accordinge vnto all that the Lorde hade geuen him in commaundement vnto them
1:4after that he had smytten Sehon the kynge of the Amorites which dwelt in Hesbon, and Og kinge of Basan which dwelt at Astaroth in Edrai.
1:5On the other syde Iordan in the lande of Moab, Moses began to declare this lawe saying:
1:6the Lord oure God spake vnto vs in Horeb saying: Ye haue dwelt long ynough in this mount:
1:7departe therfore & take youre iourney and go vnto the hilles of the Amorites and vnto all places nye there vnto: both feldes, hylles and dales: and vnto the south & vnto the sea syde in the lande of Canaan, and vnto Libanon: euen vnto the greate ryuer Euphrates.
1:8Beholde, I haue sett the land before you: goo in therfore & possess the land whiche the Lorde sware vnto youre fathers Abraham, Isaac and Iacob, to geue vnto them and their seade after them.
1:9And I sayde vnto you the same season: I am not able to beare you my selfe alon
1:10For the Lorde youre God hath multiplyed you: so that ye are this day as the starres of heauen in nombr
1:11(the Lorde God of youre fathers make you a thousande tymes so many moo as ye are, & blesse you as he hath promysed you)
1:12how (sayde I) can I my selfe alone, beare the combraunce, charge & stryfe that is amonge you:
1:13brynge therfore men of wisedome & of vnderstandynge & expert: knowen amonge youre trybes, that I maye make them ruelars ouer you,
1:14And ye answerd me and sayde: that which thou hast spoken is good to be done.
1:15And then I toke the heades of youre tribes, men of wysdome & that were expert. and made them ruelars ouer you: captaines ouer thousandes, & ouer hundreds, ouer fyfty & ouer ten, officers a monge youre trybes.
1:16And I charged your Iudges the same time sayinge: heare youre brethren & iudge ryghteously betwene euery man and his brother and the straunger that is wyth hym.
1:17Se that ye know no man in Iudgement: but heare the small as well as the greate & be afrayed of no man, for the iudgment is Gods. And the cause that is to harde for you, bryng vnto me and I will heare it.
1:18And I commaunded you the same ceason, all the thynges whych ye should do.
1:19And then we departed from Horeb and walked thorow all that greate & terrible wyldernesse as ye haue sene alonge by the waye that leadeth vnto the hylles of the Amorites, as the Lord our God commaunded vs, and came to Cades barne.
1:20And there I sayd vnto you: Ye are come vnto the hilles of the Amorites, which the Lorde oure God doth geue vnto vs.
1:21Beholde the Lorde thy God hath set the lande before the, goo vp and conquere it, as the Lord God of thy fathers sayeth vnto the: feare not, nether be discorraged.
1:22And then ye came vnto me euery one and said: Let vs sende men before vs, to searche vs out the lande and to brynge vs worde agayne, both what waye we shall go vp by, and vnto what cyties we shall come.
1:23And the sayinge pleased me well and I toke .xij. men of you, of euery trybe one.
1:24And they departed and went vp into the hye contrey and came vnto the ryuer Escoll, and serched it oute,
1:25and toke of the frute of the lande in their handes and brought it doune vnto vs and brought vs worde agayne and sayde: it is a good land whyche the Lorde oure God doth geue vs.
1:26Notwithstandyng yea wold not consente to goo vp, but were dysobedyent vnto the mouth of the Lord your God,
1:27and murmured in youre tentes and sayde: because the Lord hateth vs, therfore he hath broughte vs out of the lande of Egypte, to delyuer vs into the handes of the Amorites and to destroye vs.
1:28How shall we goo vp? Oure brethren haue discorraged oure hertes sayinge: the people is greater and taller then we, and the cyties are greate and walled euen vp to heauen, & moreouer we haue sene the sonnes of the Enakimes there.
1:29And I sayde vnto you: dreade not nor be afrayed of them:
1:30The Lord your god which gothe before you, he shall fyghte for you, accordyng to al that he dyd vnto you in Egypt before your eyes
1:31and in the wyldernesse: as thou hast sene how that the Lorde thy God bare the as a man shoulde beare hys sonne, thorow out all the waye which ye haue gone vntyll ye came vnto this place.
1:32And yet for all this sayinge ye dyd not beleue the Lorde your God
1:33which gothe the way before you, to serche you oute a place to pitche your tentes in, in fyre by nyghte, that ye myghte se what way to go and in a cloude by day.
1:34And the Lorde heard the voyce of youre wordes and was wroth and sware sayinge,
1:35there shall not one of these men of this froward generacion se that good land which I sware to geue vnto your fathers,
1:36saue Caleb the sonne of Iephune, he shall se it, and to hym wyl I geue the land which he hath walked in and to his chyldren, because he hath contynually folowed the Lorde.
1:37Lykewyse the Lorde was angrye with me for youre sakes saying: thou also shalt not go in thither.
1:38But Iosua the sonne of Nun which standeth before the, he shall go in thither. Bolden hym therfore for he shal deuyde the herytage vnto Israell.
1:39Moreouer youre chyldren which ye sayd should be a praye, and youre sonnes which knowe nether good nor bad this day, they shal goo in thither & vnto them I wyl geue it, and they shal enioye it.
1:40But as for you, turne backe & take your iourney into the wildernesse: euen the way to the read sea.
1:41Then ye answered and sayd vnto me: We haue sinned against the Lord: we wyl go vp & fighte, accordyng to al that the Lord our God commaunded vs. And when ye had gyrde on euery man his wepons of warre & were ready to go vp into the hilles,
1:42the Lorde sayd vnto me: say vnto them, se that ye go not vp & that ye fyghte not, for I am not amonge you: lest ye be plaged before youre enemies.
1:43And when I told you ye wold not heare: but disobeyed the mouth of the Lord, & went presumptuously vp into the hylles.
1:44Then the Amorites which dwelt in those hylles, came out against you and chased you as bees do, and hewed you in Seir, euen vnto Horma.
1:45And ye came agayne and wepte before the Lord: but the Lord wolde not heare your voice nor geue you audience.
1:46And so ye abode in Cades a long ceason.

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.
