Matthew's Bible 1537



11:1And there was one Iephthath a Galaadite, a strong man, which was the sonne of an harlot. How be it Galaad begatte Iephthah.
11:2But Galaades wyfe bare hym sonnes, which when they were come to age, thrust out of Iephthah, & sayd vnto him: thou shalt not enheret in our fathers house, for thou art the sonne of a straunge woman.
11:3Then Iephthah fledde from hys brethren, & dwelt in the lande of Tob. And there gathered Idle people to Iephthah, & went out with him.
11:4But it chaunced in processe of tyme, that the children of Ammon made warre agaynst Israel,
11:5then the elbers of Galaad went & fet Iephthah out of the lambe of Tob,
11:6& sayd vnto hym: come & be oure captayne, & let vs fyght with the chyldren of Ammon.
11:7And Iephthah sayd vnto the elders of Galaad. Dyd not ye hate me, & expell me out of my fathers house? how happeneth it then that you come vnto me now in tyme of your trybulacyon?
11:8And the elders of Galaad aunswered Iephthah. Therfore we turne agayne to the now, that thou go with vs, & fight against the chyldren of Ammon, & be oure head ouer al the enhabiters of Galaad.
11:9And Iephthah said vnto the elders of Galaad: If ye brynge me home agayne to fyght wyth the chyldren of Ammon then yf the Lord delyuer them before me, I shalbe your head.
11:10And the elders of Galaad sayde to Iephthah, the Lorde be witnesse betwene vs, yf we do not accordynge to thy wordes.
11:11Then Iephthah went with the elders of Galaad. And the people made hym heade and ruler ouer them. And Iephthah rehersed all hys wordes in Mazphah.
11:12Then Iephthah sent messengers vnto the Kynge of the chyldren of Ammon, sayinge: what aileth the with me that thou comest vpon me to fyght agaynst my lande?
11:13And the King of the chyldren of Ammon aunswered vnto the messengers of Iephthah, because Israel toke away my land, when they came out of Egipt: euen from Arnon vnto Iabok, & from thence vnto Iordan. Now therfore restore those landes agayne wyth fayre meanes.
11:14And Iephthah sent messengers agayne vnto the chyldren of Ammon,
11:15& sayde vnto hym: thus sayth Iephthah. Israel toke not awaye the lande of Moab, nor the land of the chyldren of Ammon.
11:16But when Israel came out of Egypt, they walked thorow the wyldernesse, euen vnto the red sea & came to Cades,
11:17& sente messengers vnto the kynge of Edom sayinge: let vs we praye the go thorow thy lande. But the kynge of Edom wolde not agre therto. And in lyke maner they sente vnto the Kynge of Moab, but he wolde not consent. And so Israel abode styll in Cades.
11:18And then they wente a longe thorowe the wildernesse, and compased the lande of Edom, & the lande of Moab, and came a longe by the eastsyde of the land of Moab, and pitched on the other syde the riuer of Arnon, and came not wythin the coastes of the Moabites: for Arnon was their vtmost border.
11:19And then Israel sent messengers vnto Sehon, Kynge of the Amorites, and Kynge of Hesbon, and said vnto him: Let vs passe thorow thy land vnto our owne countreye.
11:20But Sehon trusted not Israel, to go thorow hys coastes, but gathered all his people together and pytched in Iazah, and fought wyth Israell.
11:21But the Lord God of Israel delyuered Sehon and al his folcke into the handes of Israel. And so Israel smote them and conquered al the lande of the Amorites, the enhabiters of the sayde countreye.
11:22And they conquered al the coastes of the Amorites, from Arnon vnto Iabok, and from the wyldernesse vnto Iordan.
11:23So now seyng the Lorde God of Israel hath cast out the Amorites before his people, shouldeste thou possesse the land?
11:24Naye, but what people Camos thy God dryueth out, that land possesse thou. But whatsoeuer nacyons the Lorde oure God expelleth, that land ought we to enioye.
11:25And therto art thou better then Balack the sonne of Zephor Kynge of Moab? dyd he stryue wyth Israell or fyghte againste them?
11:26all the wyle Israell dwelte in Hesbon and her tounes, and in Aroer and her tounes, and in all the cytyes that be a longe by the coastes of Arnon .iij. hundred yeres? why dydest thou not recouer them in all that space,
11:27wherfore I haue not synned agaynste the. But thou doest me wronge, to warre agaynste me. The Lorde therfore be iudge this daye, betwene the chyldren of Israel, and the children of Ammon.
11:28How be it the Kynge of the children of Ammon harkened not vnto the wordes of Iephthah, which he sent him.
11:29Then the spirite of the Lorde came vpon Iephthah. And he passed ouer Galaad & Manasses, & came to Mazphah that lyeth in Galaad, and from thence vnto the children of Ammon.
11:30And Iephthah vowed a vowe vnto the Lorde and sayd: If thou shalt deliuer the children of Ammon into my handes,
11:31then that thinge that cometh out of the dores of my house agaynst me, when I come home in peace, from the children of Ammon, shalbe the Lordes, and I wil offer it vp a burntoffering.
11:32And so Iephthah went vnto the children of Ammon to fyght wyth them. And the Lord deliuered them into his handes.
11:33And he smote them from Aroer vnto Menith .xx. cytyes. And so forth to the plaine of the vineiardes, and made an exceding great slaughter. And thus the chyldren of Ammon were brought vnder, before the chyldren of Israel.
11:34Then Iephthah came to Mazphah vnto hys house. And se, his doughter came oute agaynste hym, wyth tymberelles & daunses, which was his onely child, so that beside her, he had neyther sonne nor doughter.
11:35And when he sawe her, he renth his clothes, & said: Alas my doughter, thou hast made me stoupe and art one of them, that trouble me. For I haue opened my mouth vnto the Lorde, & can not go backe.
11:36And she sayd vnto him: my father, yf thou haue opened thy mouth vnto the Lord, then do wyth me accordinge to that proceded out of thy mouthe, for as muche as the Lorde hath aduenged the of thyne enemyes the children of Ammon.
11:37And she sayde vnto her father, do this muche for me: let me alone two monethes, that I may go doune to the mountaines, and bewaile my virginite with my felowes.
11:38And he sayde: go, and so he sente her away two monethes. And she went with her companyons, and lamented her maydenhead vpon the mountaines.
11:39And after the two monethes, she turned againe vnto her father, which dyd with her accordinge to his vowe, which he had vowed, & so she knewe no man. And it became an ordinaunce in Israell yere by yere,
11:40that the doughters of Israel shoulde go and lamente the doughter of Iephthah the Galaadite, foure dayes in a yere.

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.
