Matthew's Bible 1537



4:1And he began agayn to teache by the sea side. And he gathered together vnto him muche people, so greatly that he entred into a shyp, & sate in the sea, and all the people was by the sea side on the shoore.
4:2And he taughte them manye thynges in similitudes: and sayde vnto them in hys doctrine.
4:3Herken. Beholde, there went out a sower to sow.
4:4And it fortuned as he sowed, that some fell by the waye syde, & the fowles of the ayre came & deuoured it vp.
4:5Some fell on stony grounde, where it had not muche earth, & by & by sprang vp, because it had not depth of earthe,
4:6but assone as the sonne was vp it caught heath, and because it had not roting widdred awaye.
4:7And some fell among the thornes, and the thornes grew vp & choked it so that it gaue no frute.
4:8And some fell vpon good ground, & dyd yeld frute, some thyrty folde, some sixtie folde, and some an hundred folde.
4:9And he sayd vnto them: He that hath eares to heare, let hym heare.
4:10And when he was alone, they that were aboute hym with the .xij. axed hym of the similitude,
4:11& he sayd vnto them: To you it is geuen to knowe the mysterye of the kyngedome of God. But vnto them that are without: shal al thynges be done in similitudes:
4:12that when they se, they shall se, and not dyscerne, and when they heare, they shal heare, and not vnderstand leste at any tyme they shoulde tourne: & theyr synnes shoulde be forgeuen them,
4:13and he said vnto them: Perceyue ye not thys similitude? howe then shoulde ye vnderstand all other similitudes?
4:14The sower soweth the word,
4:15and they that are by the wayes side, where the worde is sowen, are they to whome assone as they haue hearde it, Satan cometh immediatly, & taketh awaye the worde that was sowen in theyr hartes.
4:16And lykewyse they that are sowen on the stonye grounde, are they which when they haue hearde the worde, atonce receyue it with gladnes,
4:17yet haue no rotes in them selues: and so endure but a tyme: and anone as trouble and persecucyon aryseth for the wordes sake, they fall immediatlye.
4:18And they that are sowen amonge the thornes; are suche as heare the worde,
4:19and the care of thys worlde & the dysceythfulnes of ryches & the lustes of other thynges, enter in, and choke the worde: and it is made vnfrutefull.
4:20And those that were sowed in good grounde are they that heare the worde, & receyue it, & bryng forth frute, some thyrty fold, some sixtye folde, some an hundred folde.
4:21And he sayd vnto them: is the candle lighted, to be put vnder a bushell, or vnder the table, and not rather to be put on a candelstick?
4:22For there is nothyng so preuy, that shall not be opened: neyther so secrete, but that it shall come abroade.
4:23Yf any man haue eares to heare let hym heare.
4:24And he sayde vnto them: take hede what ye heare. With what measure ye mete, with the same shall it be measured vnto you agayne. And vnto you that heare, shall more be geuen.
4:25For vnto him that hath, shall it be geuen: and from hym that hath not shall be taken away: euen that he hath.
4:26And he sayde: so is the kyngdome of God euen as yf a man shoulde sowe sede in the grounde,
4:27and shoulde slepe and ryse vp night and daye, and the sede shoulde spryng & grow vp, he not ware.
4:28For the earth bryngeth forth frute of her selfe: fyrst the blade, then the eares, after that full corne in the eares.
4:29And assone as the frute is broughte forth, anone he thrusteth in the sykell, because the heruest is come.
4:30And he sayde: where vnto shal we lyken the kyngdome of God? or with what comparison shall we compare it?
4:31It is lyke a grayne of mustarde sede, which when it is sowen in the earth, is the least of all seedes that be in the earth:
4:32but after that it is sowen, it groweth vp and is greatest of al herbes and beareth great braunches, so that the foules of the ayre maye dwell vnder the shadowe of it.
4:33And with many suche similitudes he preached the worde vnto them, after as they myghte heare it.
4:34And withoute similitude spake he nothyng vnto them. But when they were apart he expounded all thynges to hys disciples.
4:35And the same daye when euen was come he sayde vnto them: Let vs passe ouer vnto the other syde.
4:36And they lefte the people and toke hym euen as he was in the shyppe. And there were also with hym other shyppes.
4:37And there arose a greate storme of wynde and dashed the waues into the shyppe, so that it was full.
4:38And he was in the sterne a slepe on a pelowe. And they awoke hym, and sayde to hym: Mayster carest thou not that we peryshe?
4:39And he rose vp, and rebuked the wynd and sayed vnto the sea: peace and be styll. And the wynde alayed, and there folowed a great calme.
4:40And he sayde vnto them: Why are ye so fearfull? howe is it that ye haue no faythe?
4:41And they feared excedynglye, and sayed one to another: What felowe is thys. For both wynde and sea obeye hym.

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.
