Matthew's Bible 1537



1:1Paul an Apostle, not of men, neyther by man, but by Iesus christ and by God the father, which raysed hym from death:
1:2and all the brethren whiche are with me. Vnto the congregacyons of Galacia.
1:3Grace be with you and peace from God the father, and from our Lorde Iesus Christ,
1:4whiche gaue hym selfe for oure synnes, to delyuer vs from thys present euyll worlde, thorow the wyll of God our father,
1:5to whom be prayse for euer and euer. Amen.
1:6I maruayle that ye are so sone turned from hym that called you in the grace of Christ, vnto an other Gospell:
1:7whiche is nothynge els, but that there be some which trouble you, and entende to peruert the Gospell of Christe.
1:8Neuerthelesse thoughe we oure selues, or an Angell from heauen, preache any other Gospell vnto you then that whiche we haue preached vnto you, holde hym as accurssed.
1:9As I haue sayed before, so saye I nowe agayne, yf anye man preache any other thynge vnto you, then that you haue receyued, holde hym accursed.
1:10Preache I mans doctryne or Goddes? Eyther go I aboute to please men? Yf I studyed to please men, I were not the seruauat of Christe.
1:11I certifye you brethren, that the Gospell which was preached of me, was, not after the maner of men,
1:12neyther receyued I it of man, neyther was I taughte it, but receyued it by the reuelacyon of Iesus Christ.
1:13For ye haue hearde of my conuersacyon in tyme paste, in the Iewes wayes, howe that beyonde measure I persecuted the congregacyon of God, & spoyled it,
1:14and preuayled in the Iewes lawe, aboue many of my companyons, which were of myne own nacyon, & was a much more feruent mayntayner of the tradicions of the elders.
1:15But when it pleased God (whiche separated me from my mothers wombe, and called me by hys grace,
1:16for to declare hys sonne by me) that I shoulde preache hym amonge the heathen immediatly I communed not of the matter with fleshe and bloude,
1:17neyther returned to Hierusalem to them whiche were Apostles before me, but went my wayes into Arabia, and came agayne to Damasco.
1:18Then after .iij. yere I returned to Ierusalem to se Peter and abode with hym .xv. dayes,
1:19no nother of the Apostles sawe I, saue Iames the Lordes brother.
1:20The thynges which I wryte beholde God knoweth I lye not.
1:21After that I went into the costes of Syria, and Cilicia,
1:22and was knowen as touchynge my person vnto the congregacyons of Iewry, whiche were in Christe,
1:23But they hearde onlye that he which persecuted vs in tyme past nowe preacheth the fayth which before he destroyed.
1:24And they gloryfyed God on my be halfe.

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.
