Matthew(i) 1 Before the feast of Easter when Iesus knew that hys houre was come, that he shulde depart oute of thys worlde vnto the father. When he loued his which were in the worlde, vnto the ende he loued them. 2 And when supper was ended, after that the deuyl had put in the herte of Iudas Iscarioth Simons sonne, to betraye hym. 3 Iesus knowyng that the father had geuen all thynges into hys handes, and that he was come from God, and went to God, 4 he rose from supper, and layde asyde hys vpper garmentes, & toke a towell, and gyrde hym selfe. 5 After that poured he water into a bason, & began to wash hys discyples fete, and to wype them wyth a towell, wherewith he was gyrde. 6 Then came he to Symon Peter. And Peter sayde vnto hym: Lorde shalt thou washe my fete? 7 Iesus aunswered, and sayed vnto him: what I do, thou wotest not nowe, but thou shalt knowe hereafter. 8 Peter sayed vnto him: thou shalt not washe my fete whyle the worlde standeth. Iesus aunswered hym: yf I washe the not, thou shalte haue no parte with me. 9 Simon Peter sayed vnto him: Lord not my fete onelye: but also my handes and my heade. 10 Iesus sayed vnto hym: he that is washed, neadeth not saue to washe hys fete, and is cleane euery whyt. And ye are cleane: but not al. 11 For he knewe hys betrayer. Therfore sayed he: ye are not all cleane. 12 After he had washed theyr fete, and receyued hys clothes, and was set doune agayne, he sayed vnto them. Wote ye what I haue done to you? 13 Ye call me mayster and Lorde, & ye saye well, for so am I. 14 Yf I then your lord and mayster haue washed your fete, ye also ought to wash one anothers fete. 15 For I haue geuen you an ensample, that ye shoulde do as I haue done to you. 16 Verelye verelye I say vnto you: the seruaunte is not greater then hys mayster, neyther the messenger greater then he that sent hym. 17 Yf ye vnderstande these thynges, happye are ye yf ye do then. 18 I speake not of you all. I knowe whome I haue chosen. But that the scripture myght be fulfylled, he that eateth bread with me hath lyft vp hys hele agaynst me. 19 Nowe tell I you before it come, that when it come to passe, ye myght beleue that I am he. 20 Verelye verelye I saye vnto you. He that receyueth whomesoeuer I sende, receyueth me. And he that receyueth me, receyueth him that sent me. 21 When Iesus had thus sayed, he was troubled in the spirite, and testifyed, saiynge: verelye verelye I saye vnto you, that one of you shall betraye me. 22 And then the disciples loked one on another, doubtinge of whom he spake. 23 There was one of hys disciples which leaned on Iesus bosome whome Iesus loued. 24 To him beckened Simon Peter that he shuld axe who it was, of whom he spake. 25 He then as he leaned on Iesus breste sayed vnto hym: Lorde who is it? 26 Iesus aunswered, he it is to whom I geue a sop, when I haue depte it. And he wet a soppe, and gaue it to Iudas Iscaryoth Simons sonne. 27 And after the sop Satan entred into hym. Then sayde Iesus vnto hym: that thou doest, do quickly. 28 That wist no man at the table, for what intent he spake vnto hym. 29 Some of them thought, because Iudas had the bagge, that Iesus had sayed vnto hym, bye those thinges that we haue nede of agaynst the feast: or that he shoulde geue some thyng to the poore. 30 Assone then as he had receyued the sop, he went immediatlye out. And it was nyght. 31 When he was gone oute, Iesus sayde: nowe is the sonne of man glorifyed. And God is glorified by hym. 32 Yf God be glorifyed by hym, God shall also glorifye hym in hym selfe, and shall strayghte waye glorifye hym. 33 Deare chyldren, yet a lytell whyle am I with you, ye shall seke me, and as I sayde vnto the Iewes: whyther I go, thyther can ye not come. Also to you saye I now: 34 A newe commaundement geue I vnto you, that ye loue together, as I haue loued you, that euen so ye loue one another. 35 By thys shall all men knowe that ye are my discyples, yf ye shall haue loue one to another. 36 Simon Peter sayed vnto hym. Lorde whyther goest thou? Iesus aunswered hym: Whether I go thou canste not folowe me now, but thou shalt folow me afterwarde. 37 Peter sayde vnto him: lorde, why can not I folowe the now? I wyll geue my lyfe for thy sake. 38 Iesus aunswered hym: wilte thou geue thy lyfe for my sake? Verelye verelye I saye vnto the, the cocke shall not crowe, tyll thou haue denyed me thryse.
