7:2And the Lorde sayde vnto Gedeon: the people that are wyth the, are to many for me to geue the Madianites into theyr handes, lest Israel make theyr vawnte to my dishonoure & saye, our owne hande hath saued vs.
7:3Now therfor make a proclamacyon in the eares of the people & saye: yf any man dreade or be afrayde, let hym returne and get hym sone from mounte Galaad. And there departed and returned of the people .xxij. thousand, and there abode ten thousande.
7:4And the Lorde sayd vnto Gedeon, the people are yet to many, brynge them doune vnto the water, and I wyll trye them vnto the there. And of whom I saye vnto the, thys shall go with the, the same shal go with the. And whosoeuer I saye vnto the, thys shall not go wyth the, the same shall not go.
7:5And when he had brought doune the people vnto the water, The Lorde sayde vnto Gedeon: as many as lappe the water with theyr tounges, as dogges do them put by them selues, and so do them that knele doune vpon theyr knees to dryncke.

7:10But and yf thou feare to go doune, then go thou doune vnto the host & Pharah thy ladde,
7:11& herken what they say, and so shal thyne handes be strong, and then thou shalt go doune vnto the hoste. Then he went doune wt Pharah his ladde euen harde vnto the men of armes that were in the hoste.
7:12And the Madianites, the Amalekites, and all they of the east, laye a long in the valeye, lyke vnto greshopers in multitude & theyr camelles were wythout nombre, euen as the sande by the sea syde in multitude.

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.
