9:1And when all the kynges that dwel on this syde Iordan, in the hilles and valeys, and a longe by all the costes of the great sea, euen vnto Libanon, the Hethites, the Amorites, the Cananites, the Pheresytes, the Heuytes, and the Iebusytes hearde,
9:2they gathered them selues together to fyght agaynst Iosua and Israel, with one accorde.
9:3But when the Enhabitoures of Gabaon heard what Iosua had done vnto Iericho, & Ai,
9:4they played wylylye, and went and sente Ambasadoures, and toke the olde sackes vpon their Asses, and wyne bottelles olde and rent and knyt together agayne,
9:5and olde clouted shoes vpon theyr fete, and olde rayment vpon them, and all their prouysyon of bread was dryed vp and hored.
9:6And they came vnto Iosua into the hoste, to Galgall and sayde vnto hym and vnto the men of Israell: we be come from a farre countreye, nowe therfore make agrement with vs.
9:7And the men of Israel said vnto the Heuites, paraduenture you dwelle amonge vs, and then how shoulde we make peace wyth you?
9:8And they sayde vnto Iosua, we are thy seruauntes. And Iosua saide vnto them, what are ye, and whence come ye.
9:9And they answered him. From a verye farre countrey the seruauntes are come in the name of the Lord thy God, for we haue heard the fame of him, and al that he dyd in Egypte,
9:10and al that he dyd to the two kinges of the Amorites beyonde Iordan, Sehon kynge of Hesbon, and Og kyng of Basan, whyche dwelte at Astharoth.
9:11Wherfore oure elders and al the Enhabitoures of oure countrey spake to vs, saying: take vitayles wyth you to serue by the waye, and go agaynst them, and saye vnto them: we are youre seruauntes. Nowe therfore make a couenaunt of peace with vs.
9:12This oure prouysion of bread, we toke wyth vs oute of oure houses, whote, the daye we departed to come vnto you. And now beholde it is dried vp and hored.
9:13And these bottelles of wyne, whiche we fylled were newe, and se, they be rente. And these oure garmentes and shoes are waxen olde by the reason of the exceading long Iourneye.
9:14And the men toke of their vitayles, and conceled not wyth the mouth of the Lorde.
9:15And Iosua made a peace wyth them, and made a couenaunte with them, to saue their lyues, and the Lordes of the congregacyon sware vnto them.
9:16But thre dayes after they had made peace with them, they hearde that they were neighboures vnto them, & that they dwelt amonge them.
9:17For the children of Israel toke their Iourney, and came vnto their cities the thirde daye, and their cities were Gabaon, Caphira, Beeroth, and Kariath Iarim.
9:18And the children of Israell slewe them not, because the Lordes of the congregacion had sworne vnto them by the Lord God of Israel. And therfore al the multitude murmured against the Lordes.
9:19But al the Lordes said vnto al the congregacion, we haue sworne vnto them by the Lorde God of Israel, and therfore we maye not hurte them.
9:20But thys we will do to them and let them liue, and so shal no wrath be vpon vs because of the othe which we sware vnto them.
9:21And the Lordes sayde vnto them, that they should lyue: And they were made hewers of woode and drawers of water vnto al the congregacion, as the Lordes sayde vnto them.
9:22Then Iosua sent for them, and talked wyth them, and sayde, wherfore haue ye begiled vs and yet ye dwel amonge vs?
9:23and nowe therfore cursed be you, and there shall not cease to be of you, bond men and hewers of woode & drawers of water vnto the house of my God.
9:24And they answered Iosua and sayde, it was tolde thy seruauntes, how that the Lorde thy God had commaunded his seruaunt Moses to geue you al the lande, and to destroye all the Enhabitoures therof oute of youre syghte, and therfore we were exceadinge sore afrayed of oure liues because of you,
9:25& nowe beholde, we are in thyne hande, as it semeth good and righte in thyne eyes to do vnto vs, so do.
9:26And he dealte as it is sayde, wyth them, and ridde them out of the handes of the chyldren of Israel, that they slewe them not.
9:27And Iosua made them that same daye hewers of woode and drawers of water vnto the congregacyon and vnto the aulter of God vnto this day, in the place which God should chose.

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.
