Matthew 14

Matthew(i) 1 At that tyme Herode the Tetrarcha heard of the fame of Iesu, 2 & sayd vnto his seruantes. This is Ihon Baptiste. He is rysen agayne from death, and therefore are suche miracles wrought by hym. 3 For Herode had taken Ihon and bounde hym, & put hym in pryson for Herodias sake hys brother Philips wyfe. 4 For Ihon sayd vnto him. It is not lawfull for the to haue her. 5 And when he would haue put him to deth, he feared the people, because they counted hym as a Prophet. 6 But when Herodes byrth daie was come, the daughter of Heeodias daunsed before them and pleased Herode. 7 Wherefore he promysed with an othe, that he woulde geue her whatsoeuer she woulde axe. 8 And she beynge informed of her mother before sayd: geue me here Ihon Baptistes head in a platter. 9 And the king sorowed. Neuertheles for hys othe sake, & for theyr sakes that satte at also at the table, he commaunded it to be geuen her: 10 and sent & beheaded Ihon in the pryson, 11 and hys headde was brought in a platter and geuen to the damsel, and she brought it to her mother. 12 And hys disciples came and toke vp the body, and buried it: and went and tolde Iesus. 13 When Iesus heard that, he departed thence by shypp into a deserte place out of the waye. And when the people had hearde therof, they folowed him a fote out of theyr cities. 14 And Iesus went forth and sawe muche people, & hys herte did melte vpon them, & he healed of theim those that were sicke. 15 When euen was come, hys disciples came to hym saying: Thys is a desert place, and the daye is spent: let the people departe, that thei may go in to the townes & bye them vitayles. 16 But Iesus sayde vnto them. They haue no nead to go away, Geue ye them to eate. 17 Then sayde they vnto hym: we haue here but .v. loues & .ij. fishes. 18 And he sayed brig them hither to me. 19 And he commaunded the people to sit doune on the grasse: and toke the .v. loues and the .ij. fishes, and loked vp to heauen, and blessed, and brake and gaue the loues to his disciples, & the disciples gaue them to the people. 20 And they did all eate, & were suffised. And they gathered vp the gobbets that remayned .xij. basketsful. 21 And they that eate, were in numbre about .v.M. men beside women and chyldren. 22 And strayght way Iesus made hys disciples into a ship, & to go ouer before him while he sent the people away. 23 And assone as he had sent the people away, he went vp into a mountayn alone to pray, & when night was come, he was there him self alone. 24 And the ship was now in the middest of the sea, & was toste wt waues, for it was a contrary wynde. 25 In the .iiij. watch of the night. Iesus came vnto them walking on the sea. 26 And when his disciples sawe him walkinge on the sea, they were troubled, saying: it is some spirite, & cried out for feare. 27 And straight way Iesus spake vnto them saing be of good cheare, it is I, be not afrayed. 28 Peter aunswered him & saied: master: if thou be he, bid me come vnto the on the water. 29 And he saide come. And when Peter was come doun out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Iesus. 30 But when he saw a mighty wynd, he was afrayed. And as he began to synke, he cried saying: master, saue me. 31 And immediatly Iesus stretched forth his hande & caught him, & sayed to him. O thou litle fayth wherfore diddest thou doubt? 32 And assone as they were come into the ship, the wind ceased. 33 Then they that were in the ship came & worshipped him sayng: of a truth thou art the sonne of God. 34 And when thei were come ouer, they went into the land of Genesareth. 35 And when the men of the place had knowlege of him, they sent out into all the country rounde about, & brought vnto him al that were sicke, 36 & besoughte him, that thei migh touche the hemme of his vesture only, & as many as touched it were made safe.
