Matthew's Bible 1537



5:1We knowe surelye yf oure earthy mansyon wherin we nowe dwell were destroyed, that we haue a buyldynge ordeyned of God an habitacyon not made with handes, but eternall in heauen.
5:2And therfore syghe we, desyrynge to be clothed wyth oure mansyon which is from heauen
5:3so yet yf that we be founde clothed, and not naked.
5:4For as longe as we are in thys tabernacle, we syghe and are greued, for we woulde not be vnclothed, but woulde be clothed vpon, that mortalitye myghte be swalowed vp of lyfe.
5:5He that ordeyned vs for thys thynge, is God whiche very same hath geuen vnto vs the earnest of the spiryte.
5:6Therfore we are alwaye of good chere, & knowe well that as longe as we are at home in the bodye, we are absente from God.
5:7For we walke in fayth, and se not.
5:8Neuerthelesse we are of good comforte, and had leuer be absente from the bodye, and to be presente with the Lorde.
5:9Wherfore whether we be at home or from home, we endeuoure oure selues to please hym.
5:10For we muste all appeare before the iudgement seate of Christ, that euery man maye receyue the workes of hys bodye accordyng to that he hath done, whether it be good or badde?
5:11Seynge then that we know, how the Lorde is to be feared, we fare fayre with men. For we are knowen well ynoughe vnto God. I truste also that we are knowen in your consciences.
5:12We prayse not oure selues agayne vnto you, but geue you an occasyon to reioyce of vs that ye maye haue somewhat agaynst them whiche reioyce in the face, and not in the hert,
5:13For yf we be to feruente, to God we are to feruente. Yf we kepe measure, for youre cause kepe we measure.
5:14For the loue of Christ constrayneth vs, because we thus iudge, yf one be dead, for all that then are all dead,
5:15and that he dyed for all, that they which lyue, shoulde not hence forth lyue vnto them selues, but vnto hym, whiche dyed for them, and rose agayne.
5:16Wherfore hence forthe knowe we no man after the fleshe. In so muche though we haue knowen Christe after the fleshe, nowe hence forth knowe we hym so no more.
5:17Therfore yf anye man be in Christe, he is a newe creature. Olde thynges are passed awaye, beholde all thynges are become newe.
5:18Neuerthelesse all thynges are of God, whiche hath reconcyled vs vnto hym selfe by Iesus Christe, and hath geuen vnto vs the offyce to preache the attonement.
5:19For God was in Christe, and made agrement betwene the worlde and hym selfe, and imputed not theyr synnes vnto them, & hathe committed to vs the preachynge of the atonnement.
5:20Nowe then are we messengers in the roume of Christ: euen as thoughe God dyd beseche you thorowe vs: So praye we you in Christes stede, that ye be atone with God,
5:21for he hath made hym to be synne for vs, whiche knewe no synne, that we by hys meanes should be that ryghtuousnes whiche before God is allowed.

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.
