Matthew's Bible 1537



1:1Paule an Apostle of Iesu Christe by the wyll of God. To the Saynctes whiche are at Ephesus, & to them whiche beleue on Iesus Christe.
1:2Grace be wyth you, and peace from God oure father, and from the Lorde Iesus Christe.
1:3Blessed be God the father of oure Lorde Iesus Christe, which hath blessed vs wyth all maner of spyrytuall blessynges in heauenlye thynges by Christe,
1:4accordynge as he had chosen vs in hym, before the foundacyon of the worlde was layde that we shoulde be Saynctes and wythoute blame before hym thorow loue.
1:5And ordeyned vs before thorowe Iesus Christe to be heyres vnto hym selfe, according to the pleasure of hys wyll,
1:6to the prayse of the glory of hys grace, wherewith he hath made vs accepted in the beloued.
1:7By whome we haue redemption thorowe hys bloude, euen the forgeuenes of synnes accordyng to the ryches of hys grace
1:8he shedde on vs aboundauntlye in all wysdome & perseueraunce.
1:9And hath opened vnto vs the misterye of hys wyll accordyng to hys pleasure and purposed the same in hym selfe
1:10to haue it declared, when the tyme were full come, that all thynges, bothe the thynges whiche are in heauen, & also thynges whiche are in earth shoulde be gathered together euen in Christ:
1:11that is to saye in hym in whome we are made heyres, and were thereto predestinate accordynge to the purpose of hym which worketh all thynges after the purpose of hys owne wyll,
1:12that we whiche before beleued in Christ shoulde be vnto the prayse of hys glorye.
1:13In whome also ye (after that ye hearde the worde of trueth. I meane the Gospel of your saluacyon, wherein ye beleued) were sealed with the holye spiryte of promes,
1:14whiche is the ernest of oure inheritaunce, to redeme the purchased possessyon, and that vnto the lande of hys glorye.
1:15Wherfore euen I (after that I hearde of the faythe whiche ye haue in the Lorde Iesu, and loue vnto all the saynctes)
1:16cease not to geue thankes for you: makyng mencyon of you in my prayers,
1:17that the God of oure Lord Iesus Christ, and the father of glorye myghte geue vnto you the spyryte of wysdome, and open to you the knoweledge of hym selfe,
1:18and lyghten the eyes of youre myndes that ye myght knowe what that hope is, where vnto he hath called you, and what the ryches of hys gloryous inheritaunce is vpon the saynctes,
1:19and what is the excedynge greatnes of hys power to vs warde, whiche beleue accordynge to the workynge of that hys myghtye power,
1:20whiche he wrought in Christe, when he raysed hym from the dead, and set hym on hys ryght hande in heauenly thynges,
1:21aboue all rule, power, and myghte, and domynyon, and aboue all names that are named, not in thys worlde onely, but also in the worlde to come,
1:22and hath put all thynges, vnder hys fete, and hath made hym aboue all thynges the heade of the congregacyon,
1:23which is hys bodye, and the fulnes of hym that fylleth all in all thynges.

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.
