The begynning of the gospell of Iesu Christ, şe sonne of God,
2 as it is written in the prophetes. Beholde, I send my messenger before thy
face which shal prepare thy waye before şe

4 Iohn dyd baptyse in the wyldernes, and preache the baptisme of repentaunce:
for the remissyon of synnes.
5 And all the lande of Iury and they of Ierusalem wente out vnto him, & were
all baptysed of hym in the riuer Iordan: confessyng theyr synnes.
6 Iohn was clothed with camylles heare, & with a gerdyll of a skyn about hys
loynes. And he dyd eate locustes, and wilde honey,
7 & preached saiynge: a stronger then I commeth after me, whose shoe latchet
I am not worthy to stoupe doune, and vnlose.
8 I haue baptysed you with water: but he shal baptyse you with the holye ghost.
9 And it came to passe in those dayes, that Iesus came from Nazareth, a citye of
Galile: and was baptysed of Iohn in Iordan.
10 And assone as he was come out of the water Iohn saw heauen open, and the holy
ghost descendynge vpon him lyke a doue.
11 And there came a voyce from heauen: Thou arte my dere sonne in whom I delyte.
12 And immediatly the spirite draue hym into wyldernes,
13 & he was there in the wyldernes .xl. dayes, and was tempted of Sathan,
& was with wylde beastes. And the Aungels minystred vnto hym.
14 After Iohn was taken, Iesus came into Galyle, preachynge the gospell of the
kyngedom of God,
15 and sayinge: the tyme is come, & the kyngdome of God is at hande, repente
& beleue the Gospell.
16 And as he walked by şe sea of Galile, he saw Simon & Andrew hys brother,
castyng nettes into the sea, for they were fishers.
17 And Iesus sayde vnto them: folowe me, and I wyll make you fishers of men:
18 And strayghtwaye they forsoke theyr nettes, and folowed hym.
19 And when he had gone a lyttell further thence, he sawe Iames the sonne of
Zebede, & Iohn hys brother, euen as they were in the shyppe mendynge theyr
20 And anone he called them. And they left theyr father Zebede in the shyppe
with hys hyred seruauntes, & went theyr waye after hym.
21 And they entred into Capernaum: & straight waye on the Saboth dayes, he
entred into şe synagoge & taught.
22 And they merueyled at hys learning. For he taught them as one that had power
with hym, and not as the scrybes.
23 And there was in theyr Synagoge a man vexed with an vncleane spirite, that
24 saiyng: let be: what haue we to do with the thou Iesus of Nazareth? Art thou
come to destroy vs, I knowe the what thou arte, euen şe holye of God.
25 And Iesus rebuked him, saying: hold thy peace, and come out of hym.
26 And the vncleane spirite tare hym, & cryed with a loude voyce, and came
out of hym.
27 And they were al amased, in so muche that they demaunded one of another,
amonge them selues saying: what thyng is thys? what newe doctryne is this? For
he commaundeth the foule spirites with power, and they obeye hym.
28 And immediatly hys fame spred abroade throughoute al the regyon borderynge on
29 And forth with, assone as they were come out of the synagoge, they entred
into şe house of Simon and Andrew, with Iames and Iohn
30 & Symons mother in law lay sicke of a fewer. And anone they told him of
31 And he came and toke her by the hande, and lyfte her vp, & the fewer
forsoke her by and by: and she ministred vnto them.
32 And at euen when the sunne was doune, they brought to hym all that were
dyseased, & them that were possessed with deuyls.
33 And al the cytye gathered together at the dore,
34 & he healed many that were sicke of dyuers dyseases. And he cast out
manye deuyls, and suffered not şe deuyls to speake, because they knew hym.
35 And in the mornyng very early, Iesus arose and went oute into a solytarye
place, & there prayed.
36 And Simon and they that were wyth hym folowed after him.
37 And when they had founde hym, they sayed vnto hym: al men seke for the.
38 And he sayed vnto them: let vs go into the next townes, that I maye preach
there also: for truely I came out for that purpose.
39 And he preached in theyr synagoges, throughoute all Galile, and caste the
40 And there came a leper to hym, besechinge hym, and kneled doune vnto hym, and
sayde to hym: yf thou wylt, thou cannest make me cleane.
41 And Iesus had compassyon on hym, and put forth hys hande, touched hym, &
sayd to hym: I wyl, be thou cleane.
42 And assone as he had spoken, immediatly the leprosy departed from hym, &
he was clensed.
43 And he charged hym, and sent him awaye forthwith
44 and sayde vnto hym: Se thou say nothyng to any man: but get the hence, and
shewe thy selfe to the priest, and offer for thy clensing, those thinges whiche
Moyses commaunded, for a testimonial vnto them.
45 But he (assone as he departed) beganne to tell many thynges, & to
publyshe the dede: in so muche that Iesus coulde no more openlye enter into the
citie, but was without in desert places. And they came to him from euerye
After a feawe dayes, he entred into Capernaum agayne, & it was noysed şt he
was in a house
2 And anone many gathered together, in so muche that now there was no rome to
receyue them: no, not so much as about the dore. And he preached the worde vnto
3 And there came vnto hym that brought one sicke of the palsie, borne of foure
4 And because they coulde not come nye to hym for preace, they vncouered the
rofe of the house, where he was. And when they had broken it open, they let
doune the bed where in şe sicke of the palsye laye.
5 When Iesus saw their fayth, he sayed to the sicke of the palsie, sonne thy
synnes are forgeuen the.
6 And there were certayne of the scrybes, sittynge there and reasonynge in theyr
7 how doth thys felowe so blaspheme? Who can forgeue synnes, but God onelye?
8 And immediatly when Iesus perceyued in hys spirite, şt they so reasoned in
them selues, he said vnto them why thinke ye suche thynges in your hertes?
9 Whether is it easyer to saye to the sicke of the palsie, thy synnes are
forgeuen the: or to saye: aryse, take vp thy bed, and walke?
10 That ye maye knowe that the sonne of man hath power in earth to forgeue
synnes, he spake vnto the sicke of the palsye:
11 I saye vnto the, aryse and take vp thy bedde, and get the hence into thyne
12 And by and by he arose, toke vp the bedde, & wente forthe before them
all: in so muche that they were all amased, and glorifyed God sayinge: we neuer
saw it on thys fasshyon.
13 And he wente agayne vnto the sea, and all the people resorted vnto hym, and
he taughte them.
14 And as Iesus passed by, he sawe Leuye the sonne of Alphey syt at the recepte
of custome, and sayde vnto hym: folowe me. And he arose, and folowed hym.
15 And it came to passe as Iesus sate at meate in his house, many publicans and
synners sate at meat also with Iesus and hys discyples. For there were many that
16 And when the Scrybes and pharyses sawe hym eate wyth Publicans and synners,
they sayde vnto hys discyples: howe is it that he eateth and drinketh with
Publicans and synners?
17 When Iesus heard that, he sayde vnto them: The whole haue no nede of the
phisicyon, but the sicke. I came not to call the righteous, but the synners to
18 And the discyples of Iohn and the Pharyses dyd faste; and therfore came and
sayde vnto hym. Why do the disciples of Iohn and of the Pharyses fast, and thy
discyples fast not.
19 And Iesus sayde vnto them: can the chyldren of a weddyng faste, whyles the
brydegrome is with them. As longe as they haue the brydegrome wyth them they
20 But the dayes wil come when the bridegrome shalbe taken from them, & then
shal they fast in those dayes.
21 Also no man soweth a pece of newe clothe vnto an olde garment, for then
taketh he away the newe pece from the olde, and so is the rente worsse.
22 In lyke wyse no man poureth newe wyne into olde vessels, for yf he do, the
newe wyne breaketh the vessels, and the wyne runneth oute, & the vessels are
marred. But newe wyne must be poured into newe vessels.
23 And it chaunsed that he went thorowe the corne fieldes on the Saboth daye:
and hys discyples as they wente on theyr way, began to plucke the eares of corne.
24 And the Pharyses sayde vnto hym: beholde, why do they on the Saboth dayes
that which is not lawful?
25 And he sayde to them: haue ye neuer rede what Dauid dyd, when he had nede,
& was an hungred both he and they that were with hym?
26 Howe he went into the house of God in the dayes of Abiathar the hye prieste,
and dyd eate the halowed loues, which is not lawfull to eate, but for the
priestes onely: and gaue also to them, whiche were with hym?
27 And he sayde to them: the Saboth daye was made for man, & not man for the
28 Wherfore the sonne of man is Lorde euen of the Saboth daye.
And he entred agayne into the synagoge, & there was a man there whiche had a

that they myght accuse hym.
3 And he sayde vnto the man whiche had the widdred hande: aryse and stand in şe
4 And he sayde to them: whether is it lawful to do a good dede on the Saboth
dayes, or an euyll? to saue lyfe or kyll? But they held theyr peace.
5 And he loked rounde aboute on them angerly, mournynge on the blindnes of theyr
hertes, & said to şe man: stretch forth thyne hand. And he stretched it
out. And hys hande was restored euen as whole as the other.
6 And the Pharyses departed, and strayght waye gathered a counsel with them that
belonged to Herode agaynste hym that they might destroye hym.
7 And Iesus auoyded with hys disciples to the sea. And a great multitude folowed
him from Galile, and from Iurie,
8 and from Hierusalem, and from Idumea, and from beyonde Iordane, & they
that dwelled aboute Tyre and Sydon, a great multitude: whiche when they had
hearde what thynges he dyd came vnto hym.
9 And he commaunded hys disciples, that a shypp shoulde wayte on hym, because of
the people, leste they shoulde throunge him.
10 For he had healed many, in so much that they preased vpon hym, for to touche
hym as manye as had plages.
11 And when the vncleane spirites sawe hym: they fell doune before hym, and
cryed, sayinge: thou art the sonne of God
12 And he straytly charged them that they should not vtter hym.
13 And he wente vp into a mountayne, and called vnto hym whome he woulde, and
they came vnto hym.
14 And he ordeyned the .xij. that they shoulde be with hym, & that he myghte
sende them to preache,
15 and that they myghte haue power to heale sicknesses, and to caste oute deuyls.
16 And he gaue Simon, to name Peter.
17 And he called Iames the sonne of Zebede and Iohn, Iames brother, and gaue
them Boanarges to name: whiche is to saye, the sonnes of thounder,
18 and Andrew, and Philip, & Bartelmew, and Mathew, & Thomas, &
Iames the sonne of Alphey & Taddeus, & Symon of Cane,
19 and Iudas Iscaryoth, which same also betrayed hym. And they came into an
20 & şe people assembled together agayne, so greately şt they had not
leasure so much as to eate bread.
21 And when they that longed vnto hym hearde of it, they went out to holde him.
For they thought he had bene besyde hym selfe.
22 And the scribes which came from Ierusalem, sayde: he hathe Beelzebub, and by
the power of the chiefe deuyll casteth out deuyls.
23 And he called them vnto hym, and sayd vnto them in similitudes. How can
Sathan dryue out Satan?
24 For if a realme be deuyded agaynst it selfe, that realme can not endure.
25 Or yf a house be deuyded against it selfe, that house cannot continue:
26 So yf Satan make insurreccyon agaynst hym selfe and be deuyded, he can not
contynue, but is at an ende.
27 No man can enter into a strong mans house and take awaye hys goodes, except
he fyrste bynd that stronge man, and then spoyle hys house.
28 Verely I saye vnto you: al synnes shalbe forgeuen vnto mens children and
blaspheme wherwith they blaspheme:
29 But he that blasphemeth the holye ghost, shall neuer haue forgeuenes, but is
in daunger of eternal damnacion,
30 because they said: he had an vncleane spirite.
31 Then came his mother and his brethren, & stode wtout, and sent vnto hym
& called hym.
32 And the people sate about him, & said vnto him: beholde thy mother and
thy brethren seke for şe without.
33 And he answered them saying: who is my mother and my brethren?
34 And he loked rounde about on hys disciples, which sate in compasse about him,
& sayd: behold my mother & my brethren.
35 For whosoeuer doth şe wil of god he is my brother, my syster, and mother.
And he began agayn to teache by the sea side. And he gathered together vnto him
muche people, so greatly that he entred into a shyp, & sate in the sea, and
all the people was by the sea side on the shoore.
2 And he taughte them manye thynges in similitudes: and sayde vnto them in hys
3 Herken. Beholde, there went out a sower to sow.
4 And it fortuned as he sowed, that some fell by the waye syde, & the fowles
of the ayre came & deuoured it vp.
5 Some fell on stony grounde, where it had not muche earth, & by & by
sprang vp, because it had not depth of earthe,
6 but assone as the sonne was vp it caught heath, and because it had not roting
7 And some fell among the thornes, and the thornes grew vp & choked it so
that it gaue no frute.
8 And some fell vpon good ground, & dyd yeld frute, some thyrty folde, some
sixtie folde, and some an hundred folde.
9 And he sayd vnto them: He that hath eares to heare, let hym heare.
10 And when he was alone, they that were aboute hym with the .xij. axed hym of
11 & he sayd vnto them: To you it is geuen to knowe the mysterye of the
kyngedome of God. But vnto them that are without: shal al thynges be done in
12 şt when they se, they shall se, and not dyscerne, and when they heare, they
shal heare, and not vnderstand leste at any tyme they shoulde tourne: &
theyr synnes shoulde be forgeuen them,
13 and he said vnto them: Perceyue ye not thys similitude? howe then shoulde ye
vnderstand all other similitudes?
14 The sower soweth the word,
15 and they that are by the wayes side, where the worde is sowen, are they to
whome assone as they haue hearde it, Satan cometh immediatly, & taketh awaye
the worde that was sowen in theyr hartes.
16 And lykewyse they that are sowen on the stonye grounde, are they which when
they haue hearde the worde, atonce receyue it with gladnes,
17 yet haue no rotes in them selues: and so endure but a tyme: and anone as
trouble and persecucyon aryseth for the wordes sake, they fall immediatlye.
18 And they that are sowen amonge the thornes; are suche as heare the worde,
19 and the care of thys worlde & the dysceythfulnes of ryches & şe
lustes of other thynges, enter in, and choke the worde: and it is made
20 And those that were sowed in good grounde are they that heare the worde,
& receyue it, & bryng forth frute, some thyrty fold, some sixtye folde,
some an hundred folde.
21 And he sayd vnto them: is the candle lighted, to be put vnder a bushell, or
vnder the table, and not rather to be put on a candelstick?
22 For there is nothyng so preuy, that shall not be opened: neyther so secrete,
but that it shall come abroade.
23 Yf any man haue eares to heare let hym heare.
24 And he sayde vnto them: take hede what ye heare. With what measure ye mete,
with the same shall it be measured vnto you agayne. And vnto you that heare,
shall more be geuen.
25 For vnto him that hath, shall it be geuen: and from hym that hath not shall
be taken away: euen that he hath.
26 And he sayde: so is the kyngdome of God euen as yf a man shoulde sowe sede in
27 and shoulde slepe and ryse vp night and daye, and the sede shoulde spryng
& grow vp, he not ware.
28 For the earth bryngeth forth frute of her selfe: fyrst the blade, then şe
eares, after that full corne in the eares.
29 And assone as the frute is broughte forth, anone he thrusteth in the sykell,
because the heruest is come.
30 And he sayde: where vnto shal we lyken şe kyngdome of God? or with what
comparison shall we compare it?
31 It is lyke a grayne of mustarde sede, which when it is sowen in the earth, is
the least of all seedes that be in the earth:
32 but after that it is sowen, it groweth vp and is greatest of al herbes and
beareth great braunches, so that the foules of the ayre maye dwell vnder the
shadowe of it.
33 And with many suche similitudes he preached the worde vnto them, after as
they myghte heare it.
34 And withoute similitude spake he nothyng vnto them. But when they were apart
he expounded all thynges to hys disciples.
35 And the same daye when euen was come he sayde vnto them: Let vs passe ouer
vnto the other syde.
36 And they lefte the people and toke hym euen as he was in the shyppe. And
there were also with hym other shyppes.
37 And there arose a greate storme of wynde and dashed the waues into the shyppe,
so that it was full.
38 And he was in the sterne a slepe on a pelowe. And they awoke hym, and sayde
to hym: Mayster carest thou not that we peryshe?
39 And he rose vp, and rebuked the wynd and sayed vnto the sea: peace and be
styll. And the wynde alayed, and there folowed a great calme.
40 And he sayde vnto them: Why are ye so fearfull? howe is it that ye haue no
41 And they feared excedynglye, and sayed one to another: What felowe is thys.
For both wynde and sea obeye hym.
And they came ouer to the other syde of the sea into the countre of Gaderenites.
2 And when he was come oute of the shyppe, there met hym oute of the graues a
man possessed of an vncleane spirite,
3 whiche had hys abydyng among the graues. And no man coulde bynde him: no not
4 because that when he was often bounde with fetters and chayns, he plucked şe
chayns a sunder, & brake the fetters in peces. Neyther coulde any man tame
5 And alwayes both nyght and daye he cryed in the mountaynes & in the graues,
and bet hym self with stones.
6 When he had spyed Iesus a far of, he ranne & worshypped hym
7 and cryed with a loude voyce, and sayde: what haue I to do with a loude voyce,
and sayde: what haue I to do with the Iesus the sonne of the most hyest God? I
requyre the in şe name of God that thou torment me not.
8 For he had sayde vnto hym: come out of the man thou foule spirite.
9 And he axed him: what is thy name. And he answered sayinge: my name is Legyon,
for we are manye.
10 And he prayed hym instantly, that he woulde not sende them awaye out of the
11 And there was there nye vnto the mountaynes a great herde of swyne fedyng,
12 and al the deuyls besought hym, saying: sende vs into the herde of swyne,
that we may enter into them.
13 And anone Iesus gaue them leaue. And the vncleane spirites went out and
entred into the swyne. And the herde startled, and ranne hedlynge into the sea.
They were aboute two .M. swyne & they were drouned in the sea.
14 And şe swyne herdes fleed, and tolde it in the cytye, and in the countre.
And they came out for to se what had happened:
15 and came to Iesus, and sawe hym that was vexed with the fende, and had the
legion syte, both clothed and in hys ryght mynde, & were afrayed,
16 And they that sawe it, tolde them how it had happened to him that was
possessed with şe deuyl: and also of the swyne.
17 And they beganne to praye hym, that he woulde departe from their coostes.
18 And when he was come into the shyppe, he that hadde the deuel, prayed hym
that he might be with him.
19 How beit, Iesus woulde not suffer him, but sayde vnto him: go home into thine
owne house and to thy frendes, and shewe them what greate thinges the Lord hath
done vnto the, and how he had compassion on the.
20 And he departed, & began to publishe in the ten cyties what great thinges
Iesus had done vnto him, and all men did meruayll.
21 And when Iesus was come ouer agayne by ship vnto the otherside, much people
gathered vnto him, and he was nye vnto the sea.
22 And beholde, there came one of the rulers of the Sinagoges, whose name was
Iarius: and when he sawe him, he fell doune at his fete,
23 & besought hym greatly sayinge: my doughter lyeth at point of death, I
woulde thou wouldest come and laye thy hande on her, that she might be safe and
24 And he went with hym, and muche people folowed him, & thronged him.
25 And there was a certayn woman, whiche was diseased of an yssue of bloude .xij.
26 and had suffred many thynges of many phisicions, and had spent all that she
had, and felte none amendement at all, but wexed worse & worse.
27 When she had herde of Iesus: she came into the preace behinde hym, and
touched hys garment.
28 For she thought: if I maye but touch his clothes, I shalbe whole.
29 And streightway her fountayne of bloude was dryed vp, and she felft in her
bodye, that she was healed of the plague.
30 And Iesus immediatly felte in hym selfe, the vertu that went out of hym, and
tourned him rounde about in the preace, & sayde: who touched my clothes?
31 And his disciples sayde vnto him: seist thou the people thruste the, and yet
axest, who did touche me?
32 And he loked rounde about, for to se her that had done that thing.
33 The woman feared and trembled (for she knew what was done within her) and she
came and fell doune before him, and tolde the trueth of euery thinge.
34 And he sayde to her: Doughter, thy faythe hath made the whole: go in peace,
and by whole of thy plage.
35 Whyle he yet spake, there came frome the ruler of the Synagoges house,
certayn which sayde: thy doughter is dead: why diseasest şu the maister any
36 Assone as Iesus herd that worde spoken, he sayd vnto the ruler of şe
Synagoge: be not afrayed, onely beleue.
37 And he suffred no man to folow him mo then Peter and Iames and Ihon the
brother of Iames.
38 And he came vnto the house of the ruler of the Synagoge, and sawe the
wondringe, & them that wepte and wayled greatly,
39 & went in and sayde vnto them: why make ye this a do and wepe? The mayden
is not dead, but slepeth.
40 And thy laught him to scorne. Then he put them all out, and toke the father
& the mother of the mayden, & them that were with hym, and entred in
where the mayden laye,
41 & toke the mayden by the hande, and sayd vnto her: Talitha cumi: which is
by interpretacion: mayden I saye vnto the aryse.
42 And streyght şe mayden arose, and went on her fete. For she was of the age
of twelue yeres. And thei were astonyed at it out of measur.
43 And he charged them straytely that no man shoulde know of it, and commaunded
to geue her meate.
And he departed thence, & came into hys owne countre, and hys disciples
2 And when the Sabboth daye was come, he began to teache in the Sinagoge And
many that heard him were astonied, and sayde: From whence hath he these thinges?
& what wysedome is this that is geuen vnto him? and suche vertues that are
wroughte by his handes?
3 Is not this that carpenter Maries sonne, the brother of Iames and Ioses, &
of Iuda and Simon? and are not his systers here with vs? And thei were offended
4 And Iesus sayde vnto them: a Prophet is not dispised but in his owne countre,
and amonge his owne kinne, and amonge them that are of the same housholde.
5 And he could there shewe no miracles, but layd his handes vpon a few sicke
folke and healed them.
6 And he merueyled at their vnbelefe. And he went about by the tounes that lay
on euery side, teachyng.
7 And he called the .xij. and began to sende them, two and two, and gaue them
power ouer vncleane spirites.
8 And commaunded them, that they should take nothinge vnto their iorney saue a
rod onely: Neyther scrippe, neither bread, neither money in their pourses:
9 but shoulde be shood wyth sandals. And that they should not put on two cootes.
10 And he sayde vnto them: wheresoeuer ye enter into an house, there abide till
ye departe thence.
11 And whosoeuer shal not receyue you nor heare you, when ye departe thence,
shake of the dust: that is vnder your fete, for a witnesse vnto them. I say
verely vnto you, it shalbe easier for Zodome and Gomoree at the daye of
iudgement, then for that citie.
12 And they went out and preached, that thei should repent:
13 and they cast out many deuils. And they anointed many that were sicke with
oyle and healed them.
14 And kynge Herode hearde of hym (for his name was spred abroade) & sayde:
Ihon Baptist is rysen agayne from death, and therefore myracles are wrought by
15 Other sayde: it is Helyas: and some sayde: it is a Prophet: or as one of the
16 But when Herode hearde of hym, he sayde: it is Ihon whome I beheaded, he is
rysen from death agayne.
17 For Herode him selfe had sent forth, & had taken Ihon, and bounde him and
cast him into pryson for Herodias sake, whiche was hys brother Philippes wyfe:
For he had maried her.
18 Ihon sayd vnto Herode: It is not lawful for the to haue thy brothers wyfe.
19 Herodias layed wayte for him, and woulde haue killed him, but she could not.
20 For Herode feared Iohan, knowinge that he was a iust man and an holy: and
gaue him reuerence: and when he hearde hym, he did many thynges, and heard him
21 But when a conuement daye was come: Herode on his byrth day made a supper to
the lordes, captaynes, and chief estates of Galile.
22 And the doughter of the sayd Herodias came in and daunsed, and pleased Herode,
and them that sate at bourde also. Then the kyng sayde vnto the mayden: axe of
me what thou wilt, & I wil geue it the.
23 And he sware to her, whatsoeuer thou shalt axe of me, I wil geue it the, euen
vnto the halfe of my kyngdome.
24 And she went forth & sayde to her mother: what shal I axe? And she said:
Ihon Baptistes head.
25 And she came in straight way with haste vnto the kynge, and axed saying: I
wil that thou geue me by and by in a charger the head of Ihon Baptist.
26 And the kynge was excedinge sory: howbeit, for his othes sake, and for their
sakes, whiche sate at supper also, he woulde not put her beside her purpose.
27 And immediatly the kynge sent the hang man, and commaunded his headde to be
brought in. And he went and beheaded hym in the pryson,
28 and brought his head in a charger, and gaue it to the mayden, and the maiden
gaue it to her mother.
29 And when his disciples heard of it, they came and toke vp his body, and put
it in a tombe.
30 And the apostles gathered them selues together to Iesus, & tolde him all
thinges, bothe what they had done, & what they had taught.
31 And he sayde vnto them: Come ye a parte into the wildernes and rest a while.
For there were many commers and goers, that they had no leasure so muche as to
32 And he went by ship out of the wai into a desert place.
33 But the people spied them when they departed: & many knew him and ranne
afote thither out of all cyties, and came thither before them, & came
together vnto hym.
34 And Iesus went out and sawe muche people, and had compassion on them, because
they were lyke shepe, whyche had no shepeherd. And he beganne to teache them
35 And when the daye was now farre spent, his disciples came vnto him saying:
this is a deserte place,
36 and nowe the daye is farre passed, let them departe, that they maye go into
the countrey roundabout, and into the tounes and bye them bread, for they haue
nothing to eate.
37 He aunswered and sayd vnto them: geue ye them to eate. And they sayd vnto
him: shal we go and bye .ij.C. peny worth of bread and geue them to eate?
38 He sayde vnto them: howe many loues haue ye? Go and loke. And when they had
serched they sayde: fyue and .ij. fishes
39 And he commaunded them to make them all sit doune by companyes vpon the grene
40 And they sat doune, here a rowe and there a rowe, by hundredes, and fifties.
41 And he toke the .v. loues and the .ij. fishes, and loked vp to heauen, and
blessed and brake the loues & gaue them to his disciples to put before theym:
and the .ij. fishes he deuided amonge them all.
42 And they all did eate and were satisfied.
43 And they toke vp .xij. baskettes ful of the gobbettes and of the fishes.
44 And they that eate were aboute fyue thousand men.
45 And strayghtwaye he caused his disciples to go into the ship, and to goo ouer
the water before vnto Bethsaida, whyle he sent away şe people.
46 And assone as he had sent them away, he departed into a mountayne to pray.
47 And when euen was come, the ship was in the middes of the sea, and he alone
on the lande,
48 and he sawe them troubled in rowing, for the winde was contrary vnto them.
And about the fourth quarter of the night he came vnto them walking vpon the
sea, and woulde haue passed by them.
49 When they sawe hym walking vpon the sea, they supposed it hadde bene a
spirite and cried out:
50 for they all sawe hym, and were afrayed. And anone he talked with them, and
sayde vnto them. Be of good chere, it is I, be not afrayed.
51 And he went vp vnto them into the ship, and the wynd ceased, and they were
sore amased in them selues beyonde measure, and meruayled.
52 For they remembred not of the loues, because their hertes were blynded.
53 And they came ouer and went into şe lande of Genezareth, and drue vp into
54 And assone as they were come out of the ship, strayght they knewe hym,
55 and ran forth thorowout all the region round about, and began to cary aboute
in beddes all that were sicke, to the place where they herde tell he was.
56 And whether so euer he entred into townes, cities, or vilages, they layed
theyr sicke in the stretes and prayed hym, that they might touche, and it were
but the hemme of his vesture. And as many as touched hym were safe.
And the Phariseis came together vnto hym, and diuers of şe Scribes, which came
2 And when they sawe certayne of hys disciples eate breade with commen handes
(that is to say wt vnwashen handes) they complayned.
3 For the Phariseis and all the Iewes, except thei wash their handes ofte, eate
not obseruinge the tradicions of the elders.
4 And when they come from the market, except they wash they eate not. And many
other thinges therbe whyche they haue taken vpon them to obserue, as the
wasshyng of the cuppes and cruses, and of brasen vessels, and of tables.
5 Then axed hym the Phariseis and Scribes, why walke not thy disciples
accordynge to the tradicions of the elders, but eate breade with vnwashen handes?
6 He aunswered and sayde vnto them: well prophecied Esayas of you hypocrites, as
it is wryten: This people honoureth me with theyr lippes, but their hert is
farre from me:
7 In vayne they worship me, teachynge doctrines whyche are nothyng but the
commaundementes of men.
8 For ye laye şe commaundement of God apart, and obserue the tradicions of men,
as the washyng of cruses and of cuppes, and many other suche lyke thinges ye do.
9 And he sayde vnto them: wel, ye caste aside the commaundement of God too
maintayne your owne tradicions.
10 For Moyses sayd: Honour thy father and thy mother: and whosoeuer curseth
father or mother, let him dye for it.
11 But ye saye a man shall saye to father or mother Corban: whiche is, that thou
desirest me to helpe the with, is geuen God.
12 And so ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother,
13 makynge the worde of God of none effect, thorowe youre owne tradicions, which
you haue ordeyned. And many suche thinges ye do.
14 And he called all the people vnto hym, and sayde to them. Herken to me, euery
one of you and vnderstande.
15 There is nothinge without a man that can defile him when it entereth into
him: but those thinges which procede out of hym are those, which defile the man.
16 If any man haue eares to heare, let hym heare.
17 And when he came into an house from the people his disciples axed him of the
18 And he sayde to them: Are ye so without vnderstanding. Do ye not yet perceyue
that, whatsoeuer thinge from without entreth into a man it can not defile him,
19 because it entreth not into his herte, but into his bealy: and goeth out into
the draught that pourgeth out all meates.
20 And he sayde that defileth a man, whiche cometh out of a man.
21 For from within, euen out of the herte of men, procede euel thoughtes:
aduoutry, fornication, murther,
22 theft, coueteousnes, wickednes, deceyte: vncleanenesse and a wicked eye,
blasphemy, pryde, folishenes:
23 all these euell thinges come from within and defile a man.
24 And from thense he rose and went into the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and
entered into an house, and would that no man should haue knowen: but he could
not be hyd.
25 For a certayn woman, whose doughter had a foule spirite hearde of him, and
came & fell at hys fete.
26 The woman was a Greke out of Syrophenicia, and she besought him that he
woulde caste out the deuel out of her doughter.
27 And Iesus sayde vnto her: let the chyldren firste be fedde. For it is not
mete, to take the chyldrens bread and to cast it vnto whelpes.
28 She aunswered & sayde vnto him: euen so master, neuerthelesse the whelpes
also eate vnder the table of şe chyldrens cromes.
29 And he sayde vnto her: for this saying go thy waye, the deuell is gone out of
30 And when she was come home to her house, she founde the deuell departed,
& her doughter lying on the bed.
31 And departed agayne from the coostes yf Tire and Sidon, and came to the sea
of Galile, thorow the middest of the coostes of the .x. cyties.
32 And they brought vnto him one şt was deafe, and stambred in his speache, and
praied him to lay his hand vpon him.
33 And he toke him a side from the people, and put his finger in his eares, and
did spitte and touched hys tonge,
34 and loked vp to heauen, and sighted & sayde vnto him: Ephata, that is to
say be opened.
35 And straight way his eares were opened and the stringe of hys tougue was
losed, and he spake playne.
36 And he commaunded them that they shoulde tell no man. But the more he forbad
them, so muche the more a greate deale they published it:
37 and were beyonde measure astonyed, sayinge: He hath done all thinges well,
and hath made both the deafe to heare & the domme to speake.
In those dayes when there was a very great company, and had nothinge to eate.
Iesus called his disciples to hym and sayde vnto them:
2 I haue compassion on this people, because they haue nowe bene with me thre
dayes, and haue nothing to eate.
3 And if I shoulde send them away fastynge to theyr owne houses, they should
faynte by the waye. For diuers of them came from farre.
4 And his disciples aunswered him: wher might a man haue bread here in the
wildernes to satisfie these?
5 And he asked them: how many loues haue ye? They sayde seuen.
6 And he commaunded the people to sit doune on the grounde. And he toke the
seuen loues, gaue thankes, brake, & gaue to his disciples to set before
them. And they did set them before the people.
7 And they had a few small fishes. And he blessed them and commaunded them also
to be set before them:
8 And they ate and were suffised. And they toke vp of the broken meate that was
left seuen baskettes full.
9 And they that eate were in numbre about foure thousande. And he sent them
10 And anone he entered into a shyp with his disciples, and came into the partes
11 And the Phariseis came forth and began to despute with hym, sekynge of him a
signe from heauen, & tempting him.
12 And he syghed in his spirite and sayed: why doeth this generacion seke a
signe. Verely I saye vnto you, there shal no signe be geuen vnto this
13 And he left them and went into the shyp agayne, and departed ouer the water.
14 And they had forgotten to take bread with them, neyther had they in the shyp
with them more then one lofe.
15 And he charged them sayng: Take hede of the leuen of the Phariseis, & of
the leuen of Herode.
16 And they reasoned among them selues saying: we haue no bread.
17 And when Iesus knew that, he sayd vnto them: why take ye thought because ye
haue no bread perceyue ye not yet, neyther vnderstande? Haue ye your hertes yet
18 Haue ye eyes and se not? and haue ye eares and heare not? Do ye not remember?
19 When I brake .v. loues among .v.M. How many baskettes ful of broken meate
toke ye vp? They sayde vnto him twelue.
20 When I brake seuen among .iiij. thousande. How many baskettes of the leuynges
of broken meate toke ye vp? They sayde, seuen.
21 And he sayde vnto them: How is it that ye vnderstande not?
22 And he came to Bethsaida, & they brought a blynde man vnto him, and
desired him to touche him.
23 And he caughte the blynde by the hande, and leade hym out of the toune, &
spat in his eyes, and put his handes vpon him, & axed hym whyther he saw
24 And he loked vp and sayde: I se the men: for I se them walke, as they were
25 After that he put his handes agayne vpon his eyes, and made hym se. And he
was restored to hys sight: and saw euery man clerely.
26 And he sent him home to his house saying: neyther go into the town, nor tell
it to any in the towne.
27 And Iesus went out and his disciples into the townes that longe to the cytye
called Cesarea Philippi. And by the way he axed hys disciples saying: whom do
men say that I am?
28 And they aunswered: some say that thou arte Ihon Baptist: some say Helias:
and some, one of the Prophetes.
29 And he sayde vnto them: But whome saye ye that I am? Peter aunswered and sayd
vnto hym: Thou art very Christ
30 And he charged them: that they should tel no man of him.
31 And he began to teache them: howe that the sonne of man must suffer many
thinges, and should be reproued of the elders and of the priestes and scribes,
and be killed, and after thre dayes ryse agayne.
32 And he spake şt saying openly. And Peter toke him a syde, & beganne to
33 Then he tourned about, and loked on his disciples and rebuked Peter saying:
Go after me Sathan. For thou sauerest not the thynges of God, but the thynges of
34 And he called the people vnto hym, wyth his disciples also, and sayde vnto
them: Whosoeuer will folowe me, let hym forsake hym self, and take vp his crosse
and folow me.
35 For whosoeuer wil saue his lyfe. shall lowse it. But whosoeuer shal lowse his
life for my sake and the gospels: the same shall saue it.
36 What shall it profite a man, if he shoulde wynne all the worlde, and lowse
his owne soule?
37 or els what shall a man geue, to redeme his soule agayne?
38 Whosoeuer therfore shalbe ashamed of me and of my wordes, among this
aduouterous and synfull generacion, of hym shall the sonne of man be ashamed
when he cometh in the glory of hys father with the holy aungels.
(8:39) And he sayd vnto them: Verely I saye vnto you: There be some of them that
stande here, whiche shall not taste of death tyll they haue sene the kyngedom of
God come wyth power.
2 (9:1) And after .vi. dayes Iesus toke Peter, Iames and Iohan, and leade them
vp into an hye mountayne oute of the waye alone & he was transfigured before
3 (9:2) And hys rayment did shyne, and was made very whyte, euen as snowe: so
whyte as no fuller can make vpon the earth.
4 (9:3) And there apeared vnto them Helyas with Moyses, & they talke with
5 (9:4) And Peter aunswered and sayde to Iesu: Master here is a good beyng for
vs, let vs make thre tabernacles, one for the, one for Moyses, and an other for
6 (9:5) And yet he wyste not what he sayde, for they were afrayde.
7 (9:6) And there was a cloude şt shadowed them. And a voyce came out of the
cloud saying: This is my deare sonne, heare hym.
8 (9:7) And sodenly, they loked rounde aboute them, and sawe no man more then
Iesus only with them.
9 (9:8) And as they came doune from the hyll, he charged theym that they shoulde
tell no man what they had sene, tyl the sonne of man were rysen from death
10 (9:9) And they kepte şe saying with them, and demaunded one of another, what
that rising from death agayn should meane?
11 (9:10) And they axed him sayinge: Why then saye the Scribes that Helyas must
12 (9:11) He aunswered and sayde vnto them: Helias verely shal first come and
restore all thinges. And also the sonne of man as it is written, shall suffer
many thynges, and shalbe set at nought.
13 (9:12) Moreouer I saye vnto you that Helyas is come, and they haue done vnto
hym whatsoeuer pleased theym, as it is written of hym.
14 (9:13) And he came to hys disciples, & saw muche people about them, and
the Scribes disputing with them.
15 (9:14) And strayght waye all the people when they behelde hym, were amased,
& ranne to hym, and saluted hym.
16 (9:15) And he sayde vnto the Scribes: what dispute ye with them?
17 (9:16) And one of the company aunswered & said: Master, I haue broughte
my sonne vnto the which hath a domme spirite.
18 (9:17) And whensoeuer he taketh hym, he teareth hym, and he fometh and
gnasheth with hys tethe, & pyneth away. And I spake to thy disciples that
they should caste him out, and they coulde not.
19 (9:18) He aunswered him and sayd: O generation without fayth, how long shall
I be with you? How long shall I suffer you? Brynge hym vnto me.
20 (9:19) And they broughte hym vnto him. And assone as şe spirite saw him, he
tare him. And he fell doune on the grounde, walowing and fomynge.
21 (9:20) And he axed his father: howe long is it ago, sence this hath happened
him? And he sayde, of a chylde:
22 (9:21) & ofte times casteth him into the fyre, and also into the water
too destroye him. But if thou canste do anything, haue mercy on vs, and helpe
23 (9:22) And Iesus sayd vnto him: yea, if thou couldest beleue, al thinges are
possible to him that beleueth.
24 (9:23) And strayght way the father of the chylde cryed with teares saying:
Lorde I beleue, helpe myne vnbelefe.
25 (9:24) When Iesus sawe that the people came runnyng together vnto him, he
rebuked the foule spirit, saying vnto him: Thou domme & deaf spirite, I
charge the come out of him, & enter no more into him.
26 (9:25) And the spirit cryed & rent him sore, and came out. And he was as
one şt had bene dead, in so much that many sayd, he is dead.
27 (9:26) But Iesus caught his hande and lyft him vp: and he rose.
28 (9:27) And when he was come into the house, his disciples axed him secretly
why could not we cast him out?
29 (9:28) And he sayed vnto them: this kynde can by no nother meanes come forth
but by prayer and fastinge.
30 (9:29) And they departed thence, and toke theyr iorney through Galile, and he
would not that any man should haue knowen it.
31 (9:30) For he taught his disciples, and sayde vnto them: the sonne of man
shalbe deliuered into the handes of men, and they shall kyll hym, and after that
he is kylled he shall ryse agayne the thyrde daye.
32 (9:31) But they wiste not what that saying meante, and were afrayed to axe
33 (9:32) And he came to Capernaum. And when he was come into an house, he axed
theym: what was it that ye disputed betwene you by the waye?
34 (9:33) And they helde theyr peace: for by the waye they reasoned among them
selues, who should be the chiefest.
35 (9:34) And he sate doune and called the twelue vnto hym, and sayde vnto them:
if any man desire to be first, the same shal be last of all, & seruaunt vnto
36 (9:35) And he toke a chylde, & set him in the middes of them: & toke
hym in his armes and sayde vnto them:
37 (9:36) Whosoeuer receyueth any such a chyld in my name receyueth me. And
whosoeuer receyueth me, receyueth not me, but him that sent me.
38 (9:37) Ihon aunswered him saying: Maister, we sawe one castinge out deuels in
thy name whiche foloweth not vs and we forbade hym, because he foloweth vs not.
39 (9:38) But Iesus sayd forbid him not. For there is no man that shall do a
miracle in my name, şt can lightly speake euill of me.
40 (9:39) Whosoeuer is not agaynste you, is on your part.
41 (9:40) And whosoeuer shall geue you a cuppe of water to drinke for my names
sake, because ye belonge to Christe, verelye I saye vnto you, he shall not lowse
42 (9:41) And whosoeuer shall offende one of these litelons, that beleue in me,
it were better for him that a milstone were hanged aboute hys necke, & that
he were caste into the sea.
43 (9:42) Wherfore if thy hande offende the, cut hym of. It is better for the,
to enter into lyfe maymed, then hauing two handes, go into hel, into fyre that
neuer shal be quenched,
44 (9:43) where their worme dyeth not, and the fyre neuer goeth out.
45 (9:44) Likekewise if thy fote offende the, cut him of. For it is better for
the to go halt into life, then hauinge two fete to be caste into hell, into fyre
şt neuer shalbe quenched:
46 (9:45) where their worme dyeth not, and the fyre neuer goeth out.
47 (9:46) Euen so if thyne eye offende the, plucke him out. It is better for the
to go into the kyngedome of God with one eye, then hauing two eies to be cast
into hel fyre:
48 (9:47) where their worm dieth not, and the fyre neuer goeth out.
49 (9:48) Euery man therfore shalbe salted wyth fyre. And euery sacrifice shalbe
seasoned with salt,
50 (9:49) Salt is good. But if the salt be vnsauery what shall ye sate therwith?
Se that ye haue salt in your selues, & haue peace amonge your selues, one
And he rose from thence, & wente into the coostes of Iury, through the
region that is beyond Iordan. And şe people resorted vnto him a fresh, and as
he was wont he taught them agayn.
2 And the phariseis came & axed him a question: whether it were lawfull for
a man to put away his wife: to proue him.
3 And he aunswered and sayd vnto them: What did Moyses bid you do?
4 And they sayde: Moyses suffred to write a testimoniall of deuorcement, and to
put her awaye.
5 And Iesus aunswered and sayde vnto them: For the hardnes of your hertes he
wrote this precept vnto you.
6 But at the first creacion God made them man and woman.
7 And for this thinges seke shall man leaue his father and mother, & byde by
8 and they twayne shall be one fleshe. So then are they nowe not twayne but one
9 Therfore what God hath coupled, let not man separate:
10 And in the house hys discyples axed hym agayne of the matter.
11 And he sayed vnto them: Whosoeuer putteth awaye hys wyfe and maryeth an other
breaketh wedlocke to her ward
12 And yf a woman forsake her husbande & be maryed to an other she
13 And they brought chyldren to hym, şt he should touche them. And hys
disciples rebuked those that brought them.
14 When Iesus sawe şt he was displeased, and sayed to them. Suffer the chyldren
to come vnto me, and forbyd them not. For of suche is the kyngdom of God.
15 Verely I saye vnto you: whosoeuer shall not receyue the kyngedome of God, as
a chylde, he shall not enter therein.
16 And he toke them vp in hys armes, and put hys handes vpon them and blessed
17 And when he was come into the way, there came one runnyng and kneled to him,
& axed hym: good mayster, what shall I do, that I maye enheret eternall lyfe?
18 Iesus sayed vnto hym: why callest thou me good? There is none good but one,
which is God.
19 Thou knowest the commaundementes: breake not matrimonye: kyll not: steale
not: beare not false witnes: defraude no man: honour thy father & mother.
20 He aunswered to hym: mayster all these I haue obserued from my youth.
21 Iesus behelde hym, and had a fauoure to him: and sayed vnto hym: one thynge
is lackynge vnto the. Go and sell all that thou haste, and geue to the poore,
and thou shalte haue treasure in heauen, and come and folowe me, and take vp thy
22 But he was discomforted with that saying, and went awaye mournynge, for he
had greate possessyons.
23 And Iesus loked rounde about, and sayed vnto hys discyples: what an harde
thynge is it for them that haue rychesse, to enter into the kyngedome of God.
24 And hys disciples were astonyed at his wordes. But Iesus answered agayne, and
sayed vnto them: chyldren howe harde is it for them, that truste in rychesse, to
enter into the kyngdome of God.
25 It is easyer for a camell to go thorowe the eye of a nedle, then for a ryche
man to enter into the kyngdom of God.
26 And they were astonyed out of measure, sayinge betwene them selues: who then
can be saued
27 Iesus loked vpon them & sayde: with men it is vnpossyble, but not with
God, for with God all thynges are possyble.
28 And Peter beganne to saye vnto hym: Lo, we haue forsaken all, and haue
29 Iesus aunswered and sayed: Verely I say vnto you: there is no man that
forsaketh house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wyfe, other
chyldren, or landes for my sake & the Gospels,
30 which shall not receyue an hundred folde now in this lyfe: houses, &
brethren and systers, and mothers, and chyldren, and landes wyth persecucyons,
and in the worlde to come eternal lyfe.
31 Many that are first, shal be last, and the laste shall be fyrste.
32 And they were in the waye goynge vnto Hierusalem. And Iesus wente before
them: and they were amased, and as they folowed, they were afrayed. And Iesus
toke the twelue agayne, and began to tell them what thynges shoulde happen vnto
33 Beholde, we go vp to Hierusalem and the sonne of man shalbe delyuered into
the handes of the hye priestes, and vnto the Scribes: and they shall condempne
hym to death, and shall delyuer hym to the gentyls:
34 and they shal mocke him, & schourge him and spyte vpon hym, and kyl hym.
And the thyrd daye he shall ryse agayne.
35 And then Iames & Iohn the sons of zebede came vnto hym, sayinge: Mayster,
we would that thou shouldest do for vs whatsoeuer we desyre.
36 He sayed vnto them: what woulde ye I shoulde do vnto you?
37 They sayed to hym: graunte vnto vs that we may sitte one on thy ryght hande,
and the other on thy lifte hande, in thy glory.
38 But Iesus sayed vnto them: Ye wote not what ye axe. Can ye drinke of the
cuppe that I shall drinke of, and be baptysed in the baptime that I shalbe
39 And they sayde vnto hym: that we can. Iesus sayde vnto them: ye shal drinke
of the cup that I shall drinke of, and be baptysed with şe baptysme that I
shalbe baptysed in:
40 but to sit on my ryght hande, and on my lift hande is not myne to geue, but
to them for whom it is prepared.
41 And when the .x. hearde that they began to dysdayne at Iames and Iohn.
42 But Iesus called them vnto hym, and sayde to them: Ye knowe that they whiche
seme to beare rule amonge the gentyls, raygne as lordes ouer them. And they that
be great among them, exercyse authoritie ouer them.
43 So shall it not be among you, but whosoeuer of you wil be great among you
shalbe your minister.
44 And whosoeuer wilbe chiefe, shalbe seruaunt vnto al.
45 For euen the sonne of man came not to be mynystred vnto, but to minister
& to geue hys lyfe for the redempcyon of many.
46 And they came to Hierico: and as he went out of Hierico with hys discyples,
and a great numbre of people, Barthymeus the sonne of Chimeus whiche was blynde,
sate by the hye wayes syde begginge.
47 And when he hearde, that it was Iesus of Nazareth, he beganne to crye and to
saye: Iesus the sonne of Dauid, haue mercye on me.
48 And many rebuked him that he shoulde holde hys peace. But he cryed the more a
great deale: Thou sonne of Dauid haue mercye on me.
49 And Iesus stode styl, and commaunded hym to be called. And they called the
blinde, sayinge vnto hym: Be of good comforte: ryse, he calleth the.
50 And he threwe awaye hys clooke, and rose, and came to Iesus.
51 And Iesus aunswered and sayde vnto hym: What wylte thou that I do vnto the.
The blynde sayed vnto hym: Mayster that I myght se.
52 Iesus sayde vnto hym: Go thy waye, thy faith hath saued the. And by and by he
receyued hys sight, and folowed Iesus in the waye.
And when they came nye to Hierusalem vnto Bethphage and Bethanye, besydes mount
Olyuete, he sent two of hys discyples,
2 and sayde vnto them: Go your wayes into the toune that is ouer agaist you. And
assone as ye be entred into it, ye shal fynde a coolte tied, whereon neuer man
sate: loose hym, and brynge hym hyther.
3 And yf any man say vnto you: why do ye so? Saye that the Lorde hath nede of
hym: and strayghte waye he wyll sende hym hyther.
4 And they wente theyr waye, & founde a coolte tyed by the dore without in a
place where two wayes met, and they losed hym.
5 And dyuers of them that stode there, sayd vnto them: What do ye lowsyng the
6 And they sayed vnto them euen as Iesus had commaunded them. And they let them
7 And they broughte the coolt to Iesus, and caste theyr garmentes on hym: &
he sate vpon hym.
8 And manye spredde theyr garmentes in the way. Other cut doune braunches of the
trees, and strawed them in the waye
9 And they that before, & they that folowed, cryed, saying Hosanna: blessed
be he that commeth in the name of the Lord.
10 Blessed be the kyngdome that commeth in şe name of hym that is Lord of our
father Dauid. Hosanna in the hyest.
11 And the Lorde entred into Hierusalem, & into the temple. And when he had
loked round aboute vpon all thynges, and nowe the euen tyde was come, he wente
oute vnto Bethany with the twelue.
12 And on the morowe when they were come oute from Bethany, he hungred,
13 and spied a fygge tree a farre of hauing leaues: and wente to se whether he
myghte fynde any thynge theron. But when he came therto, he founde nothyng but
leaues: for the tyme of fygges was not yet.
14 And Iesus aunswered & sayd to it: neuer man eate frute of the here after
whyle the world standeth. And hys discyples hearde it.
15 And they came to Hierusalem. And Iesus went into the temple, and beganne to
cast out sellers, and byers in the temple, & ouerthrewe the tables of the
money chaungers, & the stoles of them that solde doues,
16 and woulde not suffer that anye man caryed a vessell through the temple.
17 And he taught saying vnto them: is it not wryten: my house shall be called
the house of prayer vnto al nacions? But ye haue made it a den of theues.
18 And the Scrybes & hye Priestes hearde it: and soughte howe to destroy
him. For they feared hym, because al the people marueyled at his doctrine.
19 And when euen was come, he wente oute of the citye.
20 And in the mornynge as they passed by, they sawe the fygge tree dryed vp by
21 And Peter remembred, & sayd vnto him: maister, behold the figge tree
which thou cursedest, is wythered away.
22 And Iesus aunswered, and sayed vnto them: Haue confydence in God.
23 Verelye I saye vnto you, that whosoeuer shall saye to thys mountayne: take
awaye thy selfe, and caste thy selfe into the sea, and shall not wauer in hys
herte, but shall beleue that those thynges whiche he sayeth, shall come to passe,
whatsoeuer he sayeth, shalbe done to hym.
24 Therfore I saye vnto you, whatsoeuer ye desyre when ye praye, beleue that ye
shall haue it, and it shall be done vnto you.
25 And when ye stande, and pray, forgeue, yf ye haue any thyng agaynst any man,
that youre father also which is in heauen, may forgeue you your trespasses.
27 And they came agayne to Hierusalem. And as he walked in the temple, there
came to him the hye priestes and the Scribes & the elders,
28 and sayed vnto hym: by what authoritie doest thou these thynges? And who gaue
the thys authoritie to do these thynges?
29 Iesus aunswered and sayed vnto them: I wyll also axe of you a certayne thynge:
and aunswere ye me, and I wyll tell you by what authorite I do these thynges.
30 The baptisme of Iohn was it from heauen, or of menne? Aunswere me.
31 And they thoughte in them selues, sayinge: yf we shall saye, from heauen: he
wyl saye then: why dyd ye not beleue hym?
32 But yf we shall saye, of men, then feare we the people. For al men counted
Iohn that he was a very Prophet.
33 And they aunswered and sayd vnto Iesus: we can not tell. And Iesus aunswered
and sayed vnto them, neyther wyll I tell you, by what authoritie I do those
And he began to speake vnto them in simylitudes. A certayne man planted a
vyneyarde, and compaste it wyth an hedge, and ordeyned a wyne presse, &
buylde a tower in it. And let it oute to hyre vnto housband men, & went into
a straunge countreye.
2 And when the tyme was come, he sente to the tenauntes a seruaunte, that he
myghte receyue of the tenauntes of the frute of the vyneyarde.
3 And they caughte hym, and sent him awaye emptye.
4 And moreouer he sente vnto them another seruaunte, and at hym they cast
stones, & brake hys head, & sent hym agayne all to reuyled.
5 And agayne he sente an other and hym they kylled: and manye other, beatynge
some, and kyllyng some.
6 Yet had he one sonne whom he loued tenderlye, hym also he sente at the laste
vnto them, saiynge: they wyll feare my sonne.
7 But the tenauntes sayed amonge them selues: thys is the heyre: come let vs
kyll hym, and the enheritaunce shall be ours.
8 And they toke hym, & kylled hym, & cast hym out of the vyneyarde.
9 What shall then the Lorde of the vyneyarde do? He wyll come and destroye the
tenauntes, and let oute the vynearde to other.
10 Haue ye not read thys scrypture? The stone which the buylders dyd refuse, is
made the chiefe stone in the corner:
11 thys was done of the Lorde, and is merueylouse in our eyes.
12 And they wente aboute to take hym. But they feared the people. For they
perceyued that he spake that similitude agaynste them. And they lefte hym.
13 And they sente vnto hym certayne of the Pharyseis with Herodes seruauntes to
take hym in hys wordes.
14 And assone as they were come, they saied vnto him: maister, we know that thou
arte true, and carest for no man: for considerest not the degre of men, but
teacheste the waye of God truly. Is it lawfull to paye trybute to Cesar or not.
15 Oughte we to geue, or ought we not to geue? He vnderstode theyr simulacyon,
and sayde vnto them: Why tempte you me? Brynge me a peny that I maye se it.
16 And they broughte. And he sayde vnto them: Whose is thys Image and
superscripcion? And they sayde vnto hym: Cesars
17 And Iesus aunswered and sayde vnto them: Then geue to Cesar that which
belongeth to Cesar: and to God that whiche pertayneth to God. And they meruayled
18 Then came the Saduces vnto hym, which saye: there is no resurreccyon, and
they axed hym, sayinge:
19 Mayster, Moyses wrote vnto vs, yf anye mannes brother dye: and leaue his wyfe
behynde hym, and leaue no chyldren, that then hys brother shoulde take hys wyfe,
and rayse vp seed vnto hys brother.
20 There were seuen brethren: and the fyrst toke a wyfe and when he dyed, he
lefte no seede behynde hym.
21 And the seconde toke her and dyed: neyther lefte any seede. And the thyrde
22 And seuen had her, and lefte no seede behynd them. Laste of all the wyfe dyed
23 In the resurreccyon then, when they shal ryse agayne whose wyfe shall she be
of them? For seuen had her to wyfe.
24 Iesus aunswered and sayed vnto them: Are ye not therfore deceyued, and
vnderstande not the scryptures, neyther the power of GOD?
25 For when they shall ryse agayne from death, they neyther marye, nor are
maryed, but are as the Aungels which are in heauen.
26 As touchynge the dead, that they shall ryse agayne: haue ye not reade in şe
boke of Moyses, how in şe bushe god spake to him sayinge: I am the God of
Abraham, & God of Isaac, and the God of Iacob?
27 He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the lyuyng. Ye are therfore
28 And there came one of the Scribes that had hearde them, disputynge together,
& perceyued, that he had aunswered them well, and axed hym: Whiche is the
fyrste of all the commaundementes?
29 Iesus aunswered hym: şe fyrst of al the commaundementes is. Heare Israel:
The Lorde God is one Lorde.
30 And thou shalt loue the Lorde thy God with all thyne herte, and wyth all thy
soule, & with al thy mynde, and with all thy strength. Thys is the fyrste
31 And the seconde is lyke vnto this: Thou shalte loue thy neyghboure as thy
self. There is none other commaundement greater then these.
32 And the Scribe sayd vnto him: wel master thou haste sayde the trueth, that
there is one God, & that there is none but he.
33 And to loue hym with all the herte, and with al the mynd, and with all the
soule, & with all the strength. and to loue a mans neyghbour as hym selfe,
is a greater thyng then all burntoffrynges & sacrifices.
34 And when Iesus sawe that he aunswered discretly, he sayde vnto him: Thou art
not farre from the kyngdom of God. And no man after that, durst axe him any
35 And Iesus aunswered & sayde, teachynge in the temple: how say the scribes
that Christe is the sonne of Dauid?
36 for Dauid him self inspired with the holy ghost, sayde: The Lorde sayde to my
Lorde, sit on my righthand til I make thyne enemyes thy foote stole.
37 Then Dauid him selfe calleth him Lord: & by what meanes is he then his
sonne? And much people hearde him gladly.
38 And he sayd vnto them in his doctrine: beware of the Scribes, which loue to
go in longe clothinge and loue salutations in the market places,
39 & the chief seates in synagoges, and to sit in the vppermoste roumes at
40 & deuoure wydowes houses, and that vnder a coloure of long praiyng. These
shall receyue greater dampnacion.
41 And Iesus sat ouer agaynst the treasurye, and behelde howe the people put
money into the treasurye. And many that were ryche, cast in muche.
42 And there came a certayne poore wydowe, and she threwe in two mites, which
make a farthynge.
43 And he called vnto hym hys discyples, and sayde vnto them. Verely I saye vnto
you, that thys poore wydowe hath caste more in, then all they whiche haue caste
into the treasury.
44 For they all dyd caste in of theyr superfluyte, but she of her pouertye dyd
cast in all that she had, euen all her liuinge.
And as he went out of the temple one of hys disciples sayde vnto hym: Maister,
se what stones, & what buyldynges are here.
2 And Iesus aunswered, and sayd vnto hym: Seest thou these greate buyldinges?
There shall not be left one stone vpon another, that shall not be throwen doune.
3 And as he sate on mounte Olyuete, ouer agaynst the temple, Peter, & Iames,
& Iohn, & Andrewe axed hym secretelye:
4 tell vs, when shall these thynges be? And what is the sygne when all these
thynges shalbe fulfylled?
5 and Iesus aunswered them, and began to saye: take hede leste any man deceyue
6 For manye shall come in my name, sayinge: I am Christ, and shall deceyue manye.
7 When ye shal heare of warre, and tydynges of warre, be ye not troubled. For
suche thynges muste nedes be. But the ende is not yet.
8 For there shall nacyon aryse agaynst nacyon, and kingdom agaynst kyngdome. And
there shalbe earthquakes in all quarters, & famyshment and troubles. These
are the begynnynge of sorowes.
9 But take ye hede to your selues. For they shall brynge you vp to the counsels,
and into şe synagoges, & ye shall be beaten: ye & shalbe broughte
forthe rulers & kynges for my sake for a testimoniall vnto them.
10 And the Gospel muste fyrste be publyshed amonge all nacyons.
11 But when they leade you, and present you, take no thoughte afore hande, what
ye, shal saye, neither ymagin: but whatsoeuer is geuen you at the same tyme,
that speake. For it shall not be ye that shall speake, but the holy ghost.
12 Ye, and the brother shal deliuer the brother to death, and the father the
sonne, and the children shall ryse agaynst theyr fathers and mothers, and shal
put them to death.
13 And ye shal be hated of all men for my names sake. But whosoeuer shall endure
vnto şe ende, the same shalbe safe.
14 Moreouer, when ye se şe abhomynacyon that betokeneth desolacion, whereof is
spoken by Daniel the Prophet, stande where it oughte not, let hym that readeth
vnderstand, then let them that be in Iurye, fle to the mountaynes.
15 And let hym that is on the house top, not descended doune into the house,
neither enter therein, to fetche any thynge oute of hys house.
16 And let hym that is in the fielde: not tourne backe agayne vnto the thynges,
which he lefte behynde hym for to take hys clothes with hym.
17 Woo is then to them that are with chyld, and to them that geue soucke in
18 But praye, that your flight be not in şe winter.
19 For there shalbe in those dayes such trybulacyon, as was not from the
beginning of creatures whiche God created, vnto thys time, neyther shalbe.
20 And except that the Lord shoulde shorten those dayes, no man shoulde be saued.
But for the electes sake which he hath chosen, he hath shortened those dayes.
21 And then, yf any man say to you: lo, here is Christ, lo, he is there: beleue
22 for false Christes shal ryse, and false prophetes, and shall shewe myracles
and wondres, to deceyue yf it were possible, euen the elect.
23 But take ye hede: beholde I haue shewed you all thynges before.
24 Moreouer in those dayes, after that trybulacyon, the sonne shall waxe darke,
and the moone shal not geue her light,
25 and the starres of heauen shall fal: and the powers which are in heauen shall
26 And then shall they se the sonne of man comyng in the cloudes with great
power and glorye.
27 And then shal he send hys angels, & shall gather together his electe from
the foure wyndes, and from the one ende of the worlde to the other.
28 Learne a symylytude of the fygge tree. When hys braunches are yet tender,

is nye euen at the dores.
30 Verelye I saye vnto you, that thys generacyon shall not passe, tyll all these
thynges be done.
31 Heauen and earth shal passe, but my wordes shall not passe.
32 But of the daye & houre knoweth no man: no not the Aungels whiche are in
heauen neyther the sonne him selfe saue the father onelye.
33 Take hede, watche and pray, forth ye know not when the tyme is.
34 As a man whiche is gone into a straunge countreye, and hath left hys house,
and geuen authorite to his seruauntes, and euerye man hys worke, and commaunded
the porter to watche.
35 Watche therfore, for ye knowe not when the mayster of the house wyll come:
whether at euen, or at mydnyght: whether at the cocke crowynge or in the

After two dayes folowed easter and the dayes of swete breade. And the hye

3 When he was in Bethania, in the house of Simon the leper, euen as he sate at
meate ther came a woman hauynge an alabaster boxe of oyntment called narde, that
was pure & costly, and she brake the boxe and powred it on hys head.
4 And there were some that were not content in them selues, and sayd: what neded
this waste of oyntment?
5 For it myght haue bene solde for more then thre hundred pence, & bene
geuen vnto the poore. And they grudged agaynste her.
6 And Iesus sayde: let her be in reste, why troubled ye her? she hath done a
good worke on me.
7 For ye shall haue poore men with you alwayes, & whensoeuer ye wyll, ye
maye do them good, but me ye shal not haue alwayes.
8 She hath done that she coulde: she came afore hande to anoynte my body to hys

the whole worlde, this also that she hath done shalbe rehearsed in remembraunce
10 And Iudas Ischarioth one of the twelue went awaye vnto the hye priestes, to
betraye hym vnto them.
11 When they hearde that, they were glad, and promysed that they woulde geue hym
money. And he sought howe he myghte conuenientlye betraye hym.
12 And the fyrst daye of swete bread: when men after the pascall lambe, hys
discyples sayed vnto him: where wilt thou that we go & prepare that thou
mayest eat the easter lambe?
13 And he sente forthe two of his disciples, and sayed vnto them: Go ye into the
citye: and there shal a man mete you bearynge a pycher of water, folowe him.
14 And whyther soeuer he goeth in, say ye to the good man of şe house: the
maister axeth: where is the gest chambre, where I shall eat şe easter lambe wt
15 And he wyll shew you a great parloure, paued & prepared: there make
readye for vs.
16 And his discyples went forth, and came to the citie, and founde as he had
sayd vnto them: & made ready şe easter lambe.
17 And at euen he came with the twelue
18 and as they sate at borde, and eate. Iesus sayd: Verelye I saye vnto you:
that one of you shal betraye me, whiche eateth with me.
19 And they beganne to mourne, and to say to him one by one: is it I? and
another sayde: is it I?
20 He aunswered, and sayde vnto them: It is one of the .xij. & the same
deppeth with me in the platter.
21 The sonne of man goeth as it is written of hym, but woo be to that man, by
whom the sonne of man is betrayed: good were it for hym, yf that man had neuer

& sayd: Take, eat, this is my body.
23 And he toke şe cup, gaue thankes, & gaue it to them, & they all
dranke of it.
24 And he sayed vnto them: This is my bloud of şe new Testament which is shed
25 Verely I saye vnto you: I wyll drinke no more of thys frute of the vyne,
vntil that day, that I drinke it newe in the kingdome of God.
26 And when they had grace, they went out to mount Oliuete.
27 And Iesus sayde vnto them. All ye shalbe offended through me this night. For
it is written: I wyll smyte the shepeherde, and şe shepe shalbe scattered.
28 But after that I am rysen agayne: I wyll go into Galile before you.
29 Peter sayd vnto him. And though all men should be offended, yet woulde not I.
30 And Iesus said vnto hym: Verelye I saye vnto the, this daye euen in thys
nyghte before the cocke crowe twyse, thou shalte denye me thryse.
31 And he spake boldelyer: no, yf I shoulde dye wt the I wyll not deuye the.
Lykewyse also sayde they all.
32 And they came into a place named Gethsemanye, and he sayde to hys discyples:
Syt ye here, whyle I go a parte and praye.
33 And he toke with him Peter, Iames, and Iohn, & he began to waxe abashed,
and to be in an agonye,
34 and said vnto them: My soule is very heauye euen vnto the death: tarye here
35 And he wente forthe a litle and fell doune on the grounde, and prayed: that
yf it were possyble, the houre myght passe from hym.
36 And he sayde: Abba father, all thynges are possyble vnto the, take awaye this
cup from me. Neuerthelesse, not that I wyll but that thou wylte, be done.
37 And he came, and founde them slepynge, and sayd to Peter: Symon slepest thou?
Couldest not thou watche wt me one houre?
38 watche ye, and praye leaste ye enter into temptacyon, the spirite is ready,
and the fleshe is weake.
39 And agayne he went away and prayed and spake the same wordes.
40 And he returned and found them a slepe agayn, for theyr eyes were heauy:
neither wyste they what to aunswere hym.
41 And he came the thyrde tyme and sayd vnto them: slepe hence forth and take
youre ease, it is ynough. The houre is come, beholde the sonne of man shalbe
delyuered into the handes of synners.
42 Ryse vp let vs go. Lo, he that betrayeth me, is at hande.
43 And immediatelye whyle he yet spake, came Iudas one of the twelue, and wyth
him a great numbre of people wt sweardes & staues from the hyghe Priestes
& Scribes & elders.
44 And he that betrayed him, had geuen them a generall token saiyng: whosoeuer I
do kysse, he it is: take hym & leade him awaye warely.
45 And assone as he was come, he went straighte waye to hym, and sayed vnto him:
mayster, and kyssed him.
46 And they layde theyr handes on hym, and toke him.
47 And one of them that stode by, drue out a swerde & smote a seruaunt of
the hye priest, and cut of hys eare.
48 And Iesus aunswered and sayd vnto them: ye be come oute as vnto a thefe with
swerdes & with staues, for to take me.
49 I was daylye wt you in the temple teachynge, and ye toke me not: but that the
scriptures shoulde be fulfylled.
50 And they all forsoke him, & ranne away.
51 And there folowed him a certayne yong man clothed in linnen vpon the bare,
and the yong men caught him,
52 and he lefte hys linnen, and fleed from them naked.
53 And they leed Iesus awaye to the hyest priest of all, & to him came all
the hye priestes, and the elders, and the scribes.
54 And Peter folowed him a great waye of euen into the pallaice of the hye
priest, and sat with the seruauntes, and warmed hym self at the fyre.
55 And the hye priestes, and al the counsell soughte for witnes againste Iesu to
put him to death, & founde none.
56 Yet manye bare false witnes againste him, but theyr witnes agreed not
57 And there arose certayne and brought false wytnes agaynst hym, saiinge:
58 We hearde him saye: I will destroy this temple made with handes, & within
.iij. dayes I will buylde another made without handes.
59 But theyr wytnes agreed not together.
60 And the hyest priest stode vp amongest them: and axed Iesus, sayinge:
answerest thou nothynge? Howe is it that these beare witnes agaynst the?
61 And he helde hys peace, and aunswered nothynge. Agayne the hyest priest axed
him, and sayed vnto hym: Arte thou christe the sonne of the blessed?
62 And Iesus sayed: I am. And ye shall se the sonne of man sit on the ryght
hande of power, and come in the cloudes of heauen.
63 Then the hyest prieste rent hys clothes, & sayd: What nede we any further
64 ye haue hearde the blasphemy, what thynke ye? And then they all gaue
sentence, that he was worth of death,
65 and some began to spit at hym, and to couer hys face, and to beate hym wyth
fystes, and to saye vnto him: areade vnto vs? And the seruauntes boffeted hym on

68 And he denyed it, saying: I know hym not, neyther wot I what thou sayest. And
he wente out into the porche, and the cocke crew.
69 And a damsell saw hym, and agayne beganne to saye to them that stode by: thys
is one of them.
70 And he denyed it agayne. And anone after, they that stode by, sayed agayne to
Peter: Surely thou art one of them, for thou arte of Galile, and thy speache

And anone in the daunynge the hye priestes helde a counsel with the elders, and
the scribes, and the whole congregacion & bounde Iesus and ledde hym awaye,

2 And Pylate axed hym: arte thou the kynge of the Iewes? And he aunswered and
sayde vnto hym: thou sayest it.
3 And the hyghe Priestes accused him of manye thynges.
4 Wherfore Pylate axeth hym agayne, saying: Answerest thou nothyng? beholde how
manye thinges they laye vnto thy charge:
5 Iesus yet aunswered neuer a worde, so that Pylate meruayled.
6 At that feaste Pylate was wonte to delyuer at theyr pleasure a prysoner,
whosoeuer they woulde desyre.
7 And there was one named Barrabas, whiche laye bounde with them that made
insurreccyon, and the insurreccyon committed murther.
8 And the people called vnto hym, & began to desyre, accordyng as he had
euer done vnto them:
9 Pylate aunswered them, & sayd: Wil ye şt I lowse vnto you the kyng of the
10 For he knew that the hye priestes had deliuered him of enuye.
11 But şe hye prestes had moued the people: that he shoulde rather delyuer
Barrabas vnto them.
12 And Pylate aunswered agayne, & sayd vnto them: what wyl ye then that I do
with hym, whom ye call the kynge of the Iewes?
13 And they cryed agayne: crucifye hym.
14 Pylate said vnto them: what euyl hath he done? And they cryed the more
feruentlye: Crucifye hym.
15 And so Pylate wyllyng to content şe people, loused them Barrabas, and
delyuered Iesus, when he had scourged hym, for to be crucifyed.
16 And the soudyers ledde hym away into the common hall, and called together the
17 and they clothed him wyth purple, and they platted a croune of thornes and
crouned hym with al,
18 and began to salute hym: Hayle kynge of the Iewes.
19 And they smote hym on the head with a rede, and spatte vpon hym, and kneled
doune & worshipped hym.
20 And when they had mocked hym, they toke the purple of hym, and put hys owne
clothes on him, and led him out to crucifye him.
21 And they compelled one şt passed by, called Simon of Ciren (which came out
of the feld, and was father of Alexander and Rufus) to beare hys crosse.
22 And they broughte hym to a place named Golgotha (which is by interpretacyon,
the place of dead mens sculles)
23 and they gaue hym to drynke wyne myngled wyth myrre, but he receyued it not.
24 And when they had crucifyed hym, they parted hys garmentes castynge lotes for
them, what euerye man shoulde haue.
25 And it was about the thyrde houre, and they crucyfyed him.
26 And the tytle of hys cause was written: The kynge of şe Iewes.
27 And they crucified wt hym two theues, the one on the ryght hande, and the
other on his lyft.
28 And the scrypture was fulfylled which sayth: he was counted amonge the wycked.
29 And they that wente by rayled on hym: waggynge their heades and sayinge: A
wretche, that destroyest the temple, and buyldest it in thre dayes:
30 saue thy selfe, and come doune from the crosse:
31 Lykewise also mocked him şe hye pryestes amonge them selues with the scribes
and sayde: he saued other men, hym selfe he can not saue.
32 Let Christe the kinge of Israel now descende from the crosse, that we may se
and beleue. And they that were crucyfyed with hym, checked him also.
33 And when the syxte houre was come, darcknes arose ouer all the earth vntyll
the ninthe houre.
34 And Iesus cryed with a loude voice saying: Eloi Eloi lamasabaththany, whiche
is if it be interpreted, my God my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
35 And some of them that stode by, when they hearde that: saide: behold he
calleth for Helias.
36 And one ran and fylled a sponge full of vyneger and put it on a rede, and
gaue him to drinke, saying let him alone, let vs se whither Helyas wyll come and
take him doune.
37 But Iesus cryeth with a loude voice, and gaue vp the ghost.
38 And the vayle of the temple dyd rent in two peces from the toppe to the
39 And when the Centurion which stode before him, sawe that he so cried and gaue
vp the ghost he sayde: truly this man was the sonne of God.
40 Ther were also women a good waye of beholdyng hym: among whom was Mary
Magdalen, and Marye the mother of Iames the lytle, and of Ioses, & Mary
41 whiche also when he was in Galile, folowed hym, and mynistred vnto hym: and
manye other women, whiche came vp with hym vnto Ierusalem:
42 And now when night was come (because it was the euen that goeth before the
43 Ioseph of Arimathia a noble Councelloure which also loked for the kyngdome of
God, came and went in boldly vnto Pylate, & begged the bodye of Iesu.
44 And Pylate merueyled that he was already deade, and called vnto hym the
Centurion, and axed of hym, whether he had bene anye whyle deade.
45 And when he knewe the truth of the Centuryon, he gaue the body to Ioseph.
46 And he bought a lynnen clothe, and toke him doune, and wrapped him in the
lynnen clothe, and layde hym in a tombe that was hewen out of the rocke, and
rolled a stone vnto şe dore of the sepulchre.
47 And Mary Magdalen & Marye Ioses behelde where he was layed.
And when şe Saboth was past. Mary Magdalen, and Mary Iacobi, and Salome,
boughte odours, şt they myghte come & anoynt hym.
2 And very early in the morninge the next daye after the Saboth daye they came
to the sepulchre, when şe sunne was rysen.
3 And they sayed one to another: who shal rolle vs awaye the stone from the dore
of the sepulchre?
4 And when they loked, they sawe howe the stone was rolled awaye: for it was a
verye great one.
5 And they wente into the sepulchre, and sawe a yonge man syttyng on the ryght
syde, clothed in a long white garment, & they were abashed.
6 And he sayed vnto them, be not afrayed: ye seke Iesus of Nazareth whiche was
crucifyed. He is rysen, he is not here. Beholde the place where they put hym.
7 But go your waye, and tell hys discyples and namelye Peter: He wil go before
you into Galile, there shal ye se him as he sayde vnto you.
8 And they wente oute quickly, and fled from the sepulchre. For they trembled
and were amased. Neyther sayed they anye thynge to anye man, for they were
9 When Iesus was rysen the morowe after the Saboth daye, he appeared fyrst to
Marye Magdalen, out of whome he cast seuen deuils.
10 And she went and tolde them that were wyth hym as they mourned & wepte.
11 And when they heard that he was alyue, and he had appeared to her, they
beleued it not.
12 After that he appered to two of them in a straunge fygure, as they walked and
went into the countre.
13 And they wente and tolde it to the remnaunt. And they beleued them neyther.
14 After that he appeared vnto the eleuen, as they sate at meat, and caste in
theyr tethe theyr vnbelese and hardnes of hert: because they beleued not them
which had sene hym after hys resurreccyon.
15 And he sayed to them: Go ye into all the worlde, and preache the glad
tydynges to all creatures,
16 he that beleueth & is baptised, shall be saued. But he that beleueth not,
17 And these sygnes shall folowe them that beleue. In my name they shall caste
oute deuils, & shall speake with newe tonges,
18 & shall kyll serpentes, and yf they drinke any deadly thynge, it shall
not hurte them. They shal lay theyr handes on the sycke, and they shal recouer.
19 So then when the Lorde had spoken vnto them: he was receyued into heauen, and
is set doune on the ryght hande of God.
20 And they wente forth and preached euerye where. And the Lorde wrought with
them, and confyrmed the word wt miracles that folowed.
