Matthew's Bible 1537



3:1These are the nacyons whiche the Lord left to tempt Israel: euen as many of Israel as had not knowen al the warres of Canaan:
3:2Onelye for the learnyng of the generacyon of the children of Israel: which before knewe nothyng of warre,
3:3he lefte the fyue Lordes of the Philistines, & all the Cananites, the Sidonites, the Heuites that dwelt in mount Lybanon: euen from mount Baal Hermon and Hemath.
3:4Those remayned to proue Israel by, to wete whether they wolde herken vnto the commaundementes of the Lorde, whiche he commaunded theyr fathers by the hand of Moses.
3:5And as the chyldren of Israel dwelt among the Cananites hethytes, Amorites, Pheresites, Heuytes, and Iebusytes,
3:6they toke the doughters of them to be theyr wyues, & gaue theyr owne doughters to theyr sonnes, & serued theyr Goddes.
3:7And so the chyldren of Israell dyd wyckedlye in the syght of the Lord and forgate the Lorde theyr God and serued Baalim & Aseroth.
3:8Therfore the Lorde was angrye wyth Israel, and deliuered them into the handes of Chusan Rasathaim Kynge of Mesopotamia. So that the chyldren of Israel serued Chusan Rasathaim .viij. yeares.
3:9And then the chyldren of Israel cryed vnto the Lorde. And the Lord stered them vp a sauer, and saued them: one Othonyel the sonne of Kenes, Calebs younger brother.
3:10And the spryte of the Lorde came vpon hym. And he iudged Israell, and wente oute to warre. And the Lorde solde Chusan Rasathaim Kyng of Mesopotamia in hys hande. So that his hand was myghtye ouer Chusan Rasathaim.
3:11And the lande had rest fourtye yeares. And Othonyel the sonne of Kenes dyed.
3:12And then the children of Israel went to agayne, & commytted wyckednesse in the syght of the Lorde. And then the Lord hardened Eglon the Kyng of the Moabytes, agaynst the chyldren of Israel, because they had committed wyckednesse before the Lorde.
3:13And this Eglon gathered vnto him the chyldren of Ammon, and the Amalekites & went & smote the chyldren of Israel, & conquered the cytye of paulme trees.
3:14And the chyldren of Israell serued Eglon the king of the Moabytes .xviij. yeares.
3:15And then they cryed vnto the Lorde. And the Lord stered them vp a sauer, Ahud the sonne of Gera the sonne of Iemini, a man that could do nothyng handsomly with his ryght hande. By whome the chyldren of Israell sente a present vnto Eglon the kyng of the Moabites
3:16which Ahud made hym a dagger wyth two edges, of a cubyte lengthe, & he dyd gyrde it vnder hys cote vpon hys ryght thigh
3:17and caried the present vnto Eglon the Kynge of the Moabytes, whych Eglon was a very fatte man.
3:18And when he had presented the present, he sent the people that bare it awaye,
3:19but he hym selfe turned agayne from the Idolles by Galgal, and sayde. I haue a secret vnto the O Kynge: and the kynge commaunded hym to holde his peace vntyl all that stode aboute hym, were gone out from hym.
3:20And Ahud came in vnto hym into a somer parler, whyche he had seueral vnto hym selfe alone, and sayde: I haue a message vnto the from God. And he arose out of hys seate.
3:21And Ahud put forth hys lefte hande and toke the dagger from hys ryght thyghe and thrust it into hys belye;
3:22so that the hafte went in after the blade. And the hafte stopped in the fatte, for he drue not the dagger out of hys belye. And the dyrt came out.
3:23But Ahud gat hym oute at a posterne dore, and shutte the dores of the parler vpon hym and locked them.
3:24When he was gone out, hys seruauntes came and loked. And beholde, the dores of the parler were locked. And they sayde. A, he is a doiynge of hys easement in hys somer chomber.
3:25And when they had taried tyl they were a shamed, for noman dyd the dores of the parler open: then they toke a keye and opened them. And beholde theyr Lorde was fallen doune dead, vnto the earth.
3:26But Ahud eskaped whyle they taryed & was gone beyonde the Idolles and eskaped into Seirath.
3:27And when he was come he blew a trompette in mount Ephraim. And the chyldren of Israell went doune wyth him of the hille and he before them.
3:28And he sayd vnto them, folowe me, for the lord hath delyuered your enemies, the Moabytes into your handes. And they descended after hym and toke the passages of Iordan from the Moabites, & suffered not a man to passe ouer.
3:29And they slew of the Moabites the same tyme vpon a ten thousande men, all fatte, & men of might: that there skaped not a man
3:30and so the Moabytes were subdued that daie vnder the handes of Israell, and the land had rest .lxxx. yeares.
3:31And after hym came Samgar the sonne of Anath, whiche slewe of the Phylistines syxe hundred men wyth an oxe gode, and delyuered Israel also.

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.
