Matthew(i) 1 Then Iesus .vi. dayes before Easter, came to Bethanye where Lazarus was which was dead, and whom Iesus raysed from death. 2 There they made hym a supper, & Martha serued: but Lazarus was one of them that sate at the table with hym. 3 Then toke Mary a pounde of oyntment called Nardus, perfecte and precyous, and annoynted Iesus fete, and wepte hys fete with her heare, and the house was fylled wyth the sauoure of the oyntmente. 4 Then sayed one of hys disciples named Iudas Iscarioth Simons sonne. whiche afterwarde betrayed him: 5 why was not thys oyntment solde for thre .C. pens and geuen to the poore? 6 Thys sayed he, not that he cared for the poore, but because he was a thiefe, and kepte the bagge, and bare that whiche was geuen. 7 Then sayed Iesus Let her alone, agaynste the daye of my buriynge the kept it. 8 The poore alwayes shall ye haue with you, but me shall ye not alwayes haue. 9 Muche people of the Iewes had knoweledge that he was there, & they came not for Iesus sake onely, but that they myghte se Lazarus also whom he raysed from death: 10 The hye priestes therfore helde a counsel, that they myght put Lazarus to death also, 11 because that for hys sake many of the Iewes went away, and beleued on Iesus. 12 On the morowe muche people that were come to the feast, when they hearde that Iesus shoulde come to Hierusalem, 13 toke braunches of palme trees, and went and met hym, and cryed: Hosanna, blessed is he that in the name of the Lorde cometh kynge of Israell. 14 And Iesus gotte a yong asse, and sate theron, accordynge to that which was wrytten, 15 feare not doughter of Syon, beholde thy kynge cometh, sittynge on an asses colte. 16 These thinges vnderstode not hys discyples at the fyrst: but when Iesus was glorifyed, then remembred they that suche thynges were written of him, and that suche thynges they had done vnto hym. 17 The people that was with hym, when he called Lazarus out of hys graue, and raysed hym from death, bare recorde. 18 Therfore met hym the people, because they hearde that he had done suche a myracle. 19 The Phariseis therfore sayed amonge them selues: perceyue ye howe we preuayle nothing? beholde the worlde goeth awaye after hym. 20 There were certayne Grekes among them, that came to praye at the feaste: 21 the same came to Phylyppe which was of Bethsayda a citie in Galile, and desiered hym, saiynge: Syr we woulde fayne se Iesus. 22 Phylip came and told Andrewe. And agayne Andrewe and Philip tolde Iesus. 23 And Iesus aunswered them sayinge: The houre is come that the sonne of man must be glorifyed. 24 Verelye verelye I saye to you, excepte the wheate corne fall into the grounde and dye, it bydeth alone. If it dye, it bringeth forth much frute. 25 He that loueth hys lyfe, shall destroy it: and he that hateth hys lyfe in this world, shal kepe it vnto lyfe eternall. 26 If any man minister vnto me, let hym folowe me, and where I am, there shal also my minister be. And yf any man minister vnto me, hym wyll my father honoure. 27 Nowe is my soule troubled, and what shal I saye? Father delyuer me from thys houre: but therfore came I vnto thys houre. 28 Father, glorifye thy name. Then came there a voyce from heauen: I haue glorifyed it, and wil glorifye it agayne. 29 Then sayde the people that stode by, and hearde: it thoundreth, Other sayd an angell spake to him. 30 Iesus aunswered and sayed: thys voyce came, not because of me, but for your sakes. 31 Now is the iudgement of thys world: now shall the prince of thys worlde be caste oute. 32 And I, yf I were lyft vp from the earth, will drawe all men vnto me. 33 This sayde Iesus, signifyenge what death he shoulde dye. 34 The people aunswered hym: We haue hearde oute of the lawe, that Christe bydeth euer: and howe sayest thou then that the sonne of man muste be lyfte vp? who is that sonne of man? 35 Then Iesus sayed vnto them: yet a lyttell whyle is the lyght with you. Walke, whyle ye haue lyght, lest the darcknes come on you. He that walketh in the darcke, woteth not whether he goeth. 36 Whyle ye haue lyghte, beleue on the lyght, that ye maye be the chyldren of light. These thynges spake Iesus, and departed, and hyd hym selfe from them. 37 And though he had done so many myracles before them, yet beleued not they on hym, 38 that the saiynge of Esayas the Prophete myght be fulfylled, that he spake. Lorde, who shall beleue our saiyng? And to whome is the arme of the Lorde opened? 39 Therfore coulde they not beleue, because that Esayas sayth agayne: 40 he hath blynded theyr eyes and hardened theyr hertes, that they shoulde not se with theyr eyes, and vnderstand with theyr hertes, and shoulde be conuerted, and I shoulde heale them. 41 Such thynges said Esayas when he sawe hys glorye, and spake of hym. 42 Neuerthelesse among the chief rulers many beleued on hym. But because of that Pharyses they woulde not be a knowen of it, least they shoulde be excommunicate, 43 for they loued the prayse, that is geuen of men, more then the prayse that commeth of God. 44 And Iesus cryed and sayde: he that beleueth on me, beleueth not on me, but on hym that sente me. 45 And he that seeth me, seeth hym that sent me. 46 I am come a lyght into the worlde, that whosoeuer beleueth on me, shoulde not byde in darknes. 47 And yf anye man heare my wordes, & beleue not, I iudge him not. For I came not to iudge the worlde, but to saue the worlde. 48 He that refuseth me, and receiueth not my wordes, hath one that iudgeth hym. The wordes that I haue spoken, they shall iudge hym in the laste day. 49 For I haue not spoken of my selfe: but the father which sent me, he gaue me a commaundement what I shoulde say, & what I should speake. 50 And I knowe that thys commaundement is lyfe euerlasting. Whatsoeuer I speake therfore, euen as the father bade me, so I speake.
