Matthew's Bible 1537



3:1Thys is a true saiyng. If a man couete the offyce of a byshop, he desyreth a good worke.
3:2Yea and a bishop muste be fautlesse the husband of one wyfe, sober discrete, hone style apparelled, harberous, apt to teache,
3:3not dronken, no fyghter, not geuen to fylthy lucre: but gentle, abhorrynge fyghtyng, abhorrynge couetousnes,
3:4and one that ruleth hys owne house honestlye, hauing children vnder obedience, wyth all honestye.
3:5For yf a man can not rule hys owne house, howe shall he care for the congregacion of God.
3:6He maye not be a yong scholer, lest he swell and fall into the iudgement of the euyll speaker.
3:7He muste also be well reported of amonge them whiche are wythout forth, lest he fall into rebuke and snare of the euyll speaker.
3:8Lykewyse muste the Deacons be honest, not double tonged, not geuen vnto much drinkynge, neyther vnto fylthy lucre:
3:9but hauing the mystery of the fayth in a pure conscience.
3:10And let them fyrste be proued, and then lette them mynyster, yf they be founde fautlesse.
3:11Euen so muste theyr wyues be honeste, not euyll speakers, but sober and faythfull in all thynges.
3:12Let the deacons be the husbandes of one wyfe, and suche as rule theyr chyldren well, and theyr owne housholdes.
3:13For they that mynyster wel, get them selues good degree and greate lybertye in the faythe whiche is in Christ Iesu.
3:14These thynges wryte I vnto the, trusting to come shortely vnto the:
3:15but and yf I tarye longe, that then thou mayeste yet haue knowledge howe thou oughtest to behaue thy selfe in the housse of God, whiche is the congregacyon of the lyuynge God, the pyllar & ground of trueth.
3:16And wythout naye greate is that mysterye of godlynes: God was shewed in the fleshe, was iustified in the spirite, was sene of aungels, was preached vnto the gentils, was beleued on in earth and receyued vp in glory.

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.
