- ^ ^ v ^R. « ? ,.: 



























1 HE Scriptures contain the revelation of God'a will to man, — God's 
tni addressed to all mankind. Afi the Scriptures are Truths the closer 
re adhere to them^ the nearer we are to Truth. But the nearest ap- 
proach we can make to the inspired originals, is in faithful translations, 
■s they express the sense with the greatest brevity and precision. Hence 
good translationB afford the best helps for obtaining a tnie knowledge of 
the Scriptures, and different versions, by learned and religious men, 
most be the best and shortest commentaries. The same truths are there 
expressed in different words. Where some are too brief and obscure, 
others may be more full and clear, while together, being the same in 
■enBe^ they mutually illustrate and conBrra each other. 

The present volume contains four translations of the Gospels. These 
translations were made by the leading men, — the intellectual aristocracy 
of their day. The first version is the Gothic by Ulphilas, in the 4th 
century. What vigour and decision of mind, — what a clear view of 
the future extension and iulluence of the Germanic race, must Ulpliilas 
have had to induce him to translate the Scriptures into the vulgar 
tongue of his people, in an age when Greek and Latin were the only 
languages employed for literary purposes 1 Ulpliilas deeply felt, from 
hie own experiencej that the power of the word of God to convince 
the understanding and to influence the conduct would be limited, unless 
it WHS not only preached, but read in the mother tongue, through which 
the beet affections of the heart are most easily touched. — These remarks 
are equally applicable to the translation of the Gospels in the 8th or loth 
centurj' from the Vetus Italica into Anglo-Saxon, and to the Wycliffe 
version of the whole Bible from the Vulgate into English in the 14th 
century, which was the dawn of that scriptural light that preceded 
the Reformation. In the i6th century, Tyndale presented the Gospel 
in a still clearer light by his translation of the New Testament from 




the original Greek into English, so faithfully, that it is, in substatice, 
our present authori2ed Version, which constantly uses the same phnu|^ 
olo^y and oRen employs tlie very same words. ^M 

These versions, extending from a.d. 360 to 1526, are not only of 
great value to Divines, hut deeply interesting- to the philologist, who 
ia here supplied with ample specimens of the earliest German, and of 
the Anglo-Saxon, as well as early English. The first German comes 
down to us in the translation of Ulphilas, made about a.d. 360. Though 
the Auglo-Soxon Gospels were translated in 735 or before, and the 
version printed in this volume is from a MS. wTitten about a.d. 995, 
yet we have an earlier record of Anglo-Saxon writing, in the Laws 
of Ethelbert, king of Kent. From the Title of these Laws, wo learn 
that " they were established in the days of Augustine*," that is, 
between A.b. 597, when Ethelbert wqp baptised, and the death of 
Augustine in 604. The most probable date is 599. From this timo 
to the present, we have our written Laws ; and we are told that 
Bede, just before his death in 735, had finished the translation of 
St. John's Gospel into his native tongue, called Engliiih [Euglisc] in 
the early Laws. Tlie Germans have the first written specimen of a 
Germanic language in Ulphilas, and we the next sjjecimen in our 
Anglo-Saxon Laws, and at a later date in the Gospels. The English 
philologist will now be able to trace many words and phrases from 
the present time, 1865, to the translation of Tyudalc in 1526^ of 
Wyclitfe in 1389, of the Saxon about 995, and of the Gothic about 
360, a space of more than 1500 years. The Gothic is a language of 
Low Germau originf, as well us the Anglo-Saxon and English, we 
are, therefore, notsnrprised to find many phrases apparently ideut 
in Gothic, in Anglo-Saxon, and in modern English.

TH£ GOTHIC traaslation of Ulphilas is the firsts iB date and 
importauoe^ which elnima attention in a brief notice of these four 
rersions, and of their celebrated translators. 

The heathen Goths settled in Dacia, ou the north-west of the 
Black Sea, at an early period. While resident there they became 
Chn*>tian8j and before the Council of Nice in a.d. 32.5, tlio Christian 
Goths were so nunierous as to elect their own Bishop, Thcophilus, 
whoee signature appears in the records of that Council. The most 
celebrated of tlieir Bishops was Ulphilast, born in a.d. 318 among-st 
the Goths in Dacia. His eminent talents^ learning', and benevolence 
gave him unbounded influence over his countiymen. It, therefore, 
became a proverb among' the Goths, " Whatever is done by Ulphilas, 
ii well done." This favourable irapressioa prepares us to hear of liis 
eoDsecration, at the age of 30, as Bishop § of the Goths in a.d. 348 
by Eusebius Bishop of Nicomedia. He continued to discharge his 
episcopal duties with great fidelity for forty years, and in a. d. 388 
vent to Constantinople to promote the interest of bis Church, where 
hft died at the age of 70. ITlphilas wrote in Latin, Greek, and Gothic, 
tsd was full of energy in the practical application of his learniug. 
No difficulty or literary labour deterre<l him when he had in view 
the cherished desire of his heart, the translation of the New Testament 
&om the original Greek, and part of the Old from the Septnagint 
into Gothic, that every one of his countrymen might read the wordj 
of God in his own tongue. It is most likely that this great literary- 
work was completed before a.d. 360; because, as a faithful and zealous 
preacher of the Gospel, anxious for the instruction and edification of 
the people, he had been accustomed to transhite into their own Ian;

the passag^cs of the Scriptures which he quoted. Ulijliilas drew me 
water of life from the pure fountain, and delivered it to his people un- 
eontaminated. lie imbibed the doctrines of the Gospel at the fountain 
head, the original Greek, and preached those doctrines to the Gotl 
in their own nervous and expressive Germanic ton^e. 

Ulphilas had always taken the greatest interest in the welfare < 
the Goths. When, in the ytar 376, he saw they were grievous! 
oppressed by the Huns, he hesitated not to implore the protection 
the Emperor Valens, and pleaded their cause with such success, that 
the pro\'ince of Ma*sia was assigned to them. Their innumerable tribes 
then passed over the Danube into Mo:sia, now Ser\'ia and Bulgaria : 
it was from the residence of tliese Visigoths, or West Goths in ^la'sia 
that they have been called Mcoso-Gothsj and their language Mceso< 

Zealous Arians have always been anxious to claim Ulphilas, 
belonging to them. Valens and his Arian bishops would naturally 
use all their inHuence with Ulphilas^ and he would be disposed to 
concede as much as possible for the sake of peace and the welfare o^H 
bis people. Further, as a man of principle, he could not go. In the" 
strife, contention, and bitter persecution of the time^, it is difliculb to^ 
arrive at the exact truth. We know that LHphilas was not only 
man of great learniug, but of honest principles, and practical wisdom] 
he was, therefore, with his cautious and judicious antecedents — hi 
early and extensive knowledge of the Scriptures — not very likely 
fall into fatal errors. We are certain of this, that so far as the trai: 
lation of Ulphilas has been recovered, there is not a trace of Arianism 
be found. On the contrary, in passages clearly unfavourable to the do( 
trine of Anus, Ulphilas has honestly and plainly given the literal meaning 
of the Greek. The chief point in which we are now concerned, is thi 
that those who read the Gothic version of Ulphilas are not likely to 
led into error, as it is a faithful representation of the Greek. Thi 
was the opinion of the learned Junius and Dr. Marshall, the firsl 
editors of the Gothic Gospels, and of Cardinal Mai, and the grej 
body of learned men in the past age, as well as the present. 

Codox Argontous. — We gladly leave this subject to speak of 
principul MS. aud the chief editions of the Qotliic Gospels. The most 1 
brHted MS. is T?i4i Codex Argenteui^ or Silver Book, so culled from beinj 
transmitted to us in letters of a silvery hue, though the letters of a fci 
words in the begioniag of each paragraph are iu gold. I once thought witl 


Hire, Meerman*, and othen, that the words of this splendid Codex were not 
Trrilten on the vellum, which is of a reddish purjile colour, hut that each word 
was formed letter after letter by metallic characters heated, oud then impressed 
on stiver or gold leaf which was made to adhere to the vellum by some 
gtotiaous substADce, in the manner tliat bookhindcrs now letter and ornament 
the backs of books. On showing the facsimile to Henry Latham, Esq., M.A., 
of BrAsenose College, and of the Oxford University Press, he observed the 
letters were not so uniform as they would be if made by the impression of 
metallic characters, and suggested that the form of each letter was more 
]wt>bably drawn with some glutinous preparation, and the silver or gold leaf 
pressed upon it. On looking minutely ot our accurate facsimile, I saw 
▼aristions which could not have occurred if metaHic letters bad lieen usecL 
The word at the end of the third liuo of our faosimile is abbreviated, to 
niAke it accord with the preceding line. In the loth line of Dr. Uppstrtim's 
lai^gCT facsimile, to prevent a confused junction of the long stem of d> with 
the long stem of t in the preceding line, the top of <|| is bent to the left 
in auch a manner as could only be done by a pen or pencil. 

Being' anxious to obtain the most accurate information, even as to 

the colour of this invaluable MS,, I wrote to Professor Uppstriim. Not 

receiving an answer with that promptitude, which his liberality and 

kindness of heart always induced him to give, I presumed he had not 

received my letter, and wrot^} again. The answer came, not from the 

learned editor of the Codex Arf^enteus, but from a mutual friend, A. 

Diedrich Wackerbarth, whom I had known long ago, as graduating^ in 

honours at Corpus Chriati College, Cambridge. T may add that he has 

proved himself to be one of our best Teutonic scholars by his accurate 

and spirited translation of Beowulf, from the Anglo-Saxon into English 

verse, published in 1849. His letter gives the last sad tidings of one 

of Sweden's most learned men, and contains so minute a description of 

the MS. that I feel assured my readers will thank me for introducing 

the substance of it. 

"ITppsala, May 6th, 1865. 

" Your two letters were unfortunately too late to reach Professor Uppstriim. 
Our gowl friend died on the 2tBt of January last. His death was very unex- 
pected, and was caused by iuHammation of the lungs. Your letter of the 6th 
ulL was accordingly placed in the liauds of the Professor of Ancient Northern 
Literature, Prof. Save, who went, in company with me, to tlic library two or 
Uiree days ago, where I endeavoured by mixing water-colours to get a few 
approximations to the colour of the voUum of the Codex Argentcus. Since 

• Origin of Eng, and Genn*.nic Lang. rii. $ 10, p. Xl6, 


then your bocodJ letter Itas amrcd, that of the 28th ult. Professor Save ia at 
the present moment excecdiugly busy; but, being desirous not to keep you 
waiting for an answer, he this morning requested me to go up to the library, 
re-examine the Codex with reference to your questions, and make my report 
acconlingly. Tliis I have done and herewith communicate the result." — After 
an unsuccessful attempt to give the colour with greater precision, he sent me five 
specimens of tlie purple shades of the Tellnm taken from five dificreut parts of 
the Codex. Our facsimile is the medium colour. My friend then proceeds, — 
"The vellom is still somewhat glossy. The colour varies yery greatly in 
different parts of the Codex, iu some parts Indeed it may be said to have dis- 
appeared altogether or very nearly so, whereas in others it is even slightly 1 
darker than the darkest of my imitations, and has much the appearance o|H 
ripe mulberries. The leaves seem to have been colom'ed on one side only,^* 
the colour of the back of the bhcet being that of the front showing through. 
Calling the highly coloured side of a sheet the front, and the other side the 
back, the leaves seem to have been so arranged that front* are turned to fi-onts 
and backs to backs, so as to present uniformity of colour on both pages of the 
same opening of the book. 

" I now turn to your other question, namely the probabHity of Ihrc'a con- 
jecture that the letters are stamped ; or, iu other words, that the book is in 
fact printed, only letter by letter instead of sheet by sheet. To this conjecture 
I cannot assent, and I may add that Professor Upjistrbm held the same opinion 
OB myself, bo does also Prof. Save. The Codex is certainly very beautifully 
written and the letters are remarkably uniform, but strictly uniform they are 
not. . . .The breadth of the letter H is usually about 4^ millimetres : similarly 
the letter n : when the wi*itcr has been a little pressed for room the H and 
are reduced in breadth each to about 3J millimetres. Now had the wnter 
formed his letters by means of a stamp, he could only have contracted the 
spaces between the letters, not the letters themselves, unless indeed we suppose 
he htu\ several stamps of different breadths for each letter, which I do not think 
probable. It appears then, that the Codex has not been formed by stam])ing 
the letters but is throughout manuscript : a most beautiful and uniform manu- 
script it must have been, worthy of the pen of Brother Sintram of St. Gall 
himself, but written, not stamped. 

"Another circumstance, which I think may be worth mentioning, ia the 
following : On comparing Uppstrbm's facsimile page with the original, I observe 
that in the Codex the tail of the silver ^, which forma the first letter of the 1 2th 
line, goes quite over the arc of the golden D, which begins the next following 
line. From this I presume we may infer, that the gilding was done beforq^ 
the silvering. |H 

" 1 may mention that the upper part of the tp is not unfre<|ucntly slightly" 
bent to the left, as in the example cited by you, even when there is no 





with which it would otherwise interfere. Indeed all the letters, though quite 
nifiiciently aDiform to present to the eye that regularity which constitutes so 
import&nt & portion of what wc call beauty in writing, present, when examined 
with a magnifying glass and a fiue scale, differences of form and dimensions 
greater than I think would exbt had they been formed with a stamp. 

•* Prot Uppstrom, during his last journey in Italy, carefully cullated the 
HS8. in the Arahrosian and Vatican Libraries as well as that of WoIfcDbtittel. 
These he prepared for the press and hod even just commeuced printing when 
deatli put on end to his labours. The work will however not l>c lost to the 
world, OS it has been placed in able hands. In fact, it will be edited by Pro£ 

"I may add that the Codex has evidently been ruled throughout with 
double lines for writiug : single lines would have been sufficient fur stamping." 

Tlic Codex Argentcus, containing fragments of the four Go8[>e1». is supposed 
to be the work of Italians in their own country at the close of the 6fth 
century, or the beginning of the sixth. The only MS. in exactly the same 
style of writing, is the celebrated Gallican Psalter* now in the Abbey of 
SU Oeruiain des Pr^s. It is of the sixth century and is said to have belonged 
to St Germain, Bishop of Paris, who died May zS, 576. The vellum is stained 
of a purple-violet colour, and the writing is in silver letters, and a few particular 
words in gold. This description would sen'c for the Codex Argenteu^, the 
TcUum of which, however, is purple, exactly aa in our facsimile, of a reddish 
rather than a violet tint. 

The Codex Argenteus was preserved for many ceatunea in the monastery 
of Wcrdcn on the river Rhnr, in Wefltphalio. In the fjih century it waai 
transmitted for safety to Prague ; but, Count K^nigsmark taking that city 
in 1648, the Codex Argenteus came into the possession of the Swedes, who 
deposited it in tbo Library at Stockholm. Yossius in 1635, when visiting 
Sweden, became possessed of it, and brought it to Holland. Puffendorf, as 
he travelled through Holland in 1663, found it in the custody of Yossius, and 
pQTchased it for Count de la Gardie ; who, after having it bound in silver, 
jircMnted it to the Royal Library nt Uppsala, whore it is stiil preserved.

favoured the literati in 1753 with his remarks upon the editions of Junius, 
Stiemhielm, and Lye. He had constant access to the Codex, and his criti-

AITOLO-8AXOI7. — Before Gregory the Great planted Christianity 
in Eaghmd by liis missionaries, the energetic and warlike Anglo-Saxons 
bad scarcely any facilities for intellectual improvement. A gradual 
pre])aratioa for the public reception of the Christian faith had been 
made by the marriage of Ethelbert, king of Kent, with Bertha, a 
Frankish princess. Bertha and her attendants continued their Christian 
worship in England^ under the direction of the Bishop who accompanied 
her from France. The exemplary conduct of the Queen impressed the 
mind of Ethelbert and his court with a favourable opinion of Chris-

tianlty. The way being opened by Bertlia, Ethelbert in a.d. 597 gave 
a friendly reception to Augustine, the leader of the Chnstian messengers 
of peace, and assigned them a residence in Canterbury. Aa Christiaa 
dootrines and discipline expand the mind, and prodnce a love of 
learning and iutellectnal pursuite, these results were seen by the 
establishment of the first school in Kent hy Ethelbert, and by his 
written Laws, as well as by the thirst for knowledge raised among 
his subjects. Those, who applied themselves to literature, manifested 
the strength of their intellectual powers, by a success which could 
not have been expected, and can scarcely be surpassed. Tliat within 
a hundred years after the dawn of Christianity and literature upon 
the Anglo-Saxons, two such men as Bede and Bonifacius should have 
arisen, the one from the most northerly and the other from the southerlyfl 
part of England, — from Durham iind Devonshire, — is an adeijuate proof 
that the pre\'ious absence of literary knowledge did not arise trom the 
want of intelloci, but of opportunity for its cultivation. Bede had 
a European reputation as a Scholar, and Bonifacius as a Christian 
Missionary. Bonifacius, a native Saxon, and like all the Angles 
and Saxons of Germanic origin, speaking a Germanic dialect, was a 
most successful herald of ^>eace to his kindred race on the Continent. 
His talunts, and his heart glowing ^vith benevolence and Christiaa 
zeal, made him the missionary Bishop over the numerous tribes ta 
whom he had preache<l with such success, that he is said to have 
been the means of converting to the Christian faith more than a 

hundred thousand Germans. Bede was born in 67a, and died in 

735. His works were spread over Europe, and so highly esteemed, 
that his Ecclesiastical History, written in Latin, mus printed about 
the year 1474, among the early works that issued from the German 
press. It was translated into Anglo-Saxon by King Alfred, and is still 
a well-known and popular book, though tinged with the croduUty of 
the age in which it was written. Bede was a diligent student and 
^translator of the Scriptures, as will soon appear; but, we must first 
observe, that among the many books sent by Gregory the Great to 
Augustine, two copies of the Gospels in Latin, of the same sire, and 
written in the same Roman uncials, are now extant. After being safely 
kept in the Bibliotheca Gregoriaua in St. Augustine's Abbey, Canter- 
bury, Archbishop Parker, at the dissolution of religious houses, took 
charge of these precious MSS. ; one of these he presented, with hiafl 
other MSS. and books, to the Library of Corpus Christi College, 
Cambridge, where it still remains in perfect safety. The other oopj 






know from the following entry in the margrin fol. a a, "Robertua 
tton Cuningionenaia 1602," was among the manuscript treasures of 
ir Robert Cotton. It is now in the safe custody of the Bodleian, 
brd. This Oxford Codex appears, from its history, as well as from 
its internal evidence, to have been the original from which numerooa i 
copies were made and spread over England as far north as the residcnco 
of Bedc in the Monastery of Wearmouth, Durham. The internal evi- 
dence is this, that all the Anglo-Saxon MSS. have the large interpola- 
n given in the note upon Matt. xx. 28, with others which will 
ortly be mentioned. This MS. of the Gospels, sent by Gregory the 
Qreat, is not the Vulgate, but the old Latin Version, the Vetus Italica, 
in constant nse till the time of Jerome, who guided by it, finished his 
Vulgate translation of the Gospels in a.d. 384. As the Anglo-Saxon I 
Version was made from the Vetus Italica, it may be useful in ascertain- 
mg the readings of this oldest Latin Version. We may cite one or two 
examples more in proof that the Anglo-Saxon was from the Vetua 
Italica, and not from the Vulgate of Jerome. i 

II In St, Matt xxvii. 3a, the Vulgate has Invenerunt hominem Cyrcnapum, 
Hid omits venieatem obvinm illis. The Anglo-Saxon is word for wonl from 
fhe Vetus Italica, as will be seen below. In this instance the AnglolSaxoa 
WM evidently translated from the Vetus Italica. 

Invenerunt hominem Cyreneum, veuieutem obviam illis. Vet. Ital. 

{>• gemetton big sinne Cyreniscne man, cumeade heom togenes. Ang.-Sax. 

A dause is also omitted in the Vulgate of St. Matt. xxiv. 41, when it is 
both in the Vetus Italica and Anglo-Saxon. 

Duo in lecto, unua asaumetur, ct unua relinquctur. Vet. Ital. 

Twegcn beo}} on bedde, uu by)> gcnumcn, and oder by[> licfed. Ang^-Sax, 

Sometimes a word is different in the Vulgate and in the Italic Version, and 
the Anglo-Saxon then follows the Italic, as iu St. Luke xv. 8. 

Et ewrtil domum. VeL Ital ] 

And dwent byre bus. Ang.-Sax. 
£t ewrrit domum. Vtdff. 

The Vetus Itahca somctimca omits a whole verse, and the same omisrioftj 
la observed in the Codex Anguatinius and in the Anglo-Saxon, when it is con- 
tuned in the Vulgate, as in St. Matt, xxiii. 14. This affords further evidence, 
that the Anglo-Saxon was translated from the Vetus Italica, and also that the 
Bodleian Codex Au^rustinius is the Italic, and not the Vulgate Version. Sw the 
^pon Matt xxiil 14, p. 577. 


It is then an interesting fact, tliat we still pOflscflBj in the Bodleian, 
one of the copies which Gregory the Great sent to England, — that 
it is not a copy of the Vulgate, but of the Vetu3 Italica, and that it 
may be the very copy from which the Anglo-Saxon Version was made. 

We arc not certain as to the names of those patriotic Anglo-Saxons, 
who devoted their time, talenU, and learning to the translating of the 
Scriptures into Anglo-Saxon, that they might be read by the people, 
and in their churches; but we have an indisputable evidence in the 
Rubrics, printed in our notes from the MS. that they were constantly 
read in Anglo-Saxon churches, as the rubrical directions declare what 
part of the Scriptures was appointed for successive seasons. We have 
no more knowledge of the exact date when the Gospels were first trans- 
lated into Anglo-Saxon, than we have of the translators. Wc are, 
however, a^ured by Cnthbert*, a pupil of the learned Venerable Bede, 
the glory of the Anglo-Saxon Church, that he was finishing his trans- 
lation of St, John's Gospel immediately K-fore his death on the a7th 
of May, 735. As St. John is the last of the Gospels, the three pre- 
ceding had most likely been previouiily translated. Cuthbert describes 
the last day of Bede's life with Christian simplicity and feeling, 'When 
the morning dawned he told us to write diligently what we had begun. 
This being done, one of us said, — Tliere is yet, beloved Master, one 
chapter wanting; will it be unpleasant to })g asked any more questions? 
He answered, Not at all. Take ynur i)en and write with speed. — Ho 
did so. At the ninth hour he said to me, I have some valuables in 
my little chest; fetch them that I may distribute my small presents. 
He addressed each and exhorted to prayer. "We wept. In the evening 
when his pupil said, Dear Master, one sentence is still wanting. Write 
it quickly, exclaimed Bede. When it was finished, he said. Support 
mo while I go to tlie holy place, where I can pray to my Father. 
When he was placed there he repeated the Gloria Patri, and expired 
in the effort.' 

We have no satisfactory evidence to prove that this was the first 
translation of the Gospels, nor that Bede's version has come down to 
us. The Scriptures, in their own tongue, were revered by the Anglo- 
Saxons, for Alfred the Great placed the Commandments at the head 
of his Laws, and incorporated many passages from the Gospels. Sub- 
sequent translators would naturally avail themselves of the versions 
made by their predecessors, and write them in the orthography, the 
language, and the style of the time in which they lived. From these

On the upper margin of page i of this MS. is written iu the bold, clear

KaOutnia JudUei Legatio Fabuloaa ad Tihmum CirsaretH, p. 383-401. All the 
401 pages of the MS. are written in the same bold and distinct Anglo-Saxon 
bond. The Bubrics are in faded, dark red IciterB of the Kamo form as the MS., 
but written after the text was finigticd, aa they often extend fur into tbo margin, 
the latter words being placed at the end of one or more consecutive Hues of 
the MS. : for example in Matt, xi., MS. p. 37, lino 14-17. The letters of the 
ILubri<« were most likely formeil, when the Capital letters were coloured. The 
Gospels arc divided into panigriiphs, denoted by large plain Capital letters of 
diflVrcut colours, some of which, especially the green and light blue, are aa 
bright aa if recently coloured. There is generally, but not always, a Kubric 
at the lieod of each paragnijih. Three or four paragraphs are often included in 
a Chapter ; and the chapters of our modem versions sometimes begin in the 
middle or otlier parts of tbo jMiragraphs of this MS., in which there was not 
originally the least indication of such a division. 

III. This is what remains of the once fine MS. written on vellum before 
the Norm&n Conquest, and denoted by Cot, because it is iu the Cotton Library, 
British Museum, Otho C. I. A minute description is given of it by Wanley 
in A.D. 1704*, when it was in a perfect stato from Matt, xxvii, 6. It waa so 
much injurcti by the fire, which destroyed many of Sir Rol)crt Cotton's MSS. 
on the 33rd of Oct. 1731, tlint, what was defective only as far as Mutt, xxvii. 6 
before that calamity, afterwards looked like a charred mass, Planta, in his 
Catalogue of the Cotton M86., describes it as " once consisting of 390 leaves, 
but now (1S02) so much burnt and contracted as to render the binding of it 
impracticable." It was fortunately kept in a case ; and what was found im- 
pmcticable by Mr. Planta, bus been cfTcctcd under the carefid superintendence 
of Sir Frederic Madden, by whose judicious arrangements many MSS. have 
been restored, and made accessible to the public The smallest part of tbis 
burnt moss has been carefully mounted on thick folio paper, which is cut away

in the middle to fit the iujured velluzn, and nude fast by tranapareDt paper, 
gummed to tbe edges of the paper and the vellum ; the MS. can, therefore, bo 
cBBily read oo both sides. It is now bound in two large folio vols. Sir Frederio 
Madden tella na— that twenty-fire folios are lost siDcc Wanlcy described it. 
The first small fragment of this MS. now remaining is from folio 26, which Sir 
F. Madden has marked as part of St. Mark vii. 22. Such a note deserves the 
best tltaidu of all who consult the MS. as it saves much of their time. The 
fregraents increase a little in size &-om fulio 36 to 38. St Luke is nearly com- 
plete, and occupies fol. 39-93. St. John fills fol. 95-135, and is nearly perfect, 
flBpedaUy in the latter part. There are not any rubrical directions, and only 
■ few badly formed capital letters of a dingy red colour in this ^IS. The 
•eeents are neither numerous nor carefully applied. 

TV. H. The Hattou MS. No. 38 in the Bodleian*, Oxford, is the size of 
m large 8vo. and written on vellum, in a very uniform and beautiful, but late 
hand, about the time of Henry 11. The letters are so uniform, upright, and 
Bc*r together, aa to appear like printing in facsimile types. It formerly be- 
longed to the Rev. John Parker, son of Matthew Parker, Archbishop of Canter- 
bury, who wrote his name in red chalk, " lohci parker,'* on tbe verso and top of 
tbe first fly-leaf. Wunley tells us that the miMing leaf Lk. xvi. was neatly 
written and inserted by Mr. Parker. Tlic four Qospels are arranged not iu tho 
usual order, but St. Matt is placed after St Luke ; thus, Mark, Luke, Matthew, 
and John. The only Rubric in Anglo-Saxon is this at the beginning of St. 
John, — Her onginjt diet god spell de Johonncii so goflspellerc gewrat on Path- 
nos dam eiglande. — The accents arc few, and capriciowtly applied. 

V. This MS, denoted by RL is in the Royal Lihrary, British Museum, I. A 
XIV. It is \'ery similar to the Hatton in the 8vo. size, but a little smaller. 
The writing is somewhat earlier in date, and less regular than the Hutlon, 
The Rubrics are very few, and of a brighter red than the Hatton. There are 
scarcely any accents; yet Tsouc is found in fol. 33, 5. The four Gospels are 
placed in this order, — ^Marfc^ Matthew, Luke, and John, — St Mark begins,

four Anglo-Sa.\on Gospels is in small folio, written before the Norman Cou- 
quGSt*, in a fine bold Anglo-Saxon character, and has some vowels accented. 
The Bubrics are written in a small and recent bond, between the paragraphs ; 
or, for want of. room, in the margin. The first six leaves of St. Mark, fob 
57-63, fob 90, fob 131, and fol. I5o,a1so the last three leaves of St. John, 
fob 193-194, are written in a small and recent hand ui>on new parchment, 
with few accents. — The first edition of the Anglo-Soxou Gospels by John 
Foxe, in 157 1, was printed from this Oxford MS. No. 441. It was also the 
basis of the edition by Junius and Marshall in 1665. 

VII. The Latin of the Lindisfaruc Gospels, or the Durham Book, is said to 
bare been written about a.d. 687 by Eadfrith, a monk, and the interlinear and 
verbal Anglo-Saxon Gloss, by Aldred a Priest, between 946 and 968. Botb 
Eadfrith and Aldred became Bishops of Durham. It ia one of our finest MSS. 

VIII. Tlio Latin of the Rusbworth Gospels appears to be written about the 
end of the 7th century; and the interlinear and verbal Anglo-Saxon Gloss of 
the loth. The first three Gospels have been published by the Surtees Socie 
St. Matthew, edited by the Rev. Joseph Stevenson, M.A., 8vo. 1854. St Mar!

Printed oditions. — I. The Anglo-Saxon Gospels were first printed, at 
the suggestion and expense of Matthew I'arker, Archbishop of Canterbury, 
under the care of John Foxe, the Martyrologist, with this title :— " The Gospels 
of the fower Kuangelisteji translated in the oldo Saxons tymc out of Latin into 
the vulgare toung of the Saxons, newly collected out of Auncieut Monumentca 
of the sayd Saxons, and now published for t«stimouie of tlie same at Londo: 
Printed by John Daye dwelling ouer Aldersgate. 1571. Cum PriuUetjio Rtg 
Maie^talis per D&xnnmm." The text is in the clear and readable Anglo-Saxoi 
type, used by Daye in ^Elfric's " Sennoa on Easter day," I567t, the first bool 
pnntcd in Anglo-Saxon. The Anglo-Saxon occupies two-thirds the width of 
the page, and the remaining third is filled with the English Version of the 
Bishops* Bible in small old English. Foxe wrote the long dedication to Queen , 
Elizabeth. The chief object for the publication of these Gospels is thus stated 
in the Preface : — " Wc baue published especially to ttiis end, that the said boke . 
imprinted thus in the Sctxojis letters, may remoine in the Church as a profitabl^H 
example, and president of olde antiquitie, to the more confii-mation of youi*^

which once it had." (p. 9.) 

H. A much improved edition of the Anglo-Saxon GoepeU* woa published, 
with the Gothic by Junius and Marshall, in 1665, with the following ample 
title, — Qutttuor D. N. Jesu ChrJsti Eiiangeliorum Versionea perantiquRj duce,

Anglo-Saxon Yeraion of the holy Gospels, edited from the original manuscriptfi, 
by Bemjamin Thorpe, F.S.A. London, Rivington : Oxford, Parker : 1843. 

One peculiar feature of the Anglo-Saxon version may be noticed, 
before wo speak of the next translation. Those terms, which are adopted 
in other versions from the HebreWj Greek, and Latin, an.- g^enerally 
trmnsUted by indigenous Anglo-Saxon compounds, so descriptive us to 
be intelligible to every reader. A very few examples will be sufficient 
to bhow this principle, and the compositive power of the An^lo-Saxon 
language. For Centui'ion they used hundre<l-mau, similar to the Lai. 
Cenlurio : — Disciple, leoming-cniht, a leamiaff youth : — Dropsy, a man 
with the dropsy was called wieter-scoc-man : — Parable, bigspel, a near

WYCLTFFE. — Till the discovery of printing in the I5tli centurj', 
i}\a Holy Scriptures and other writings could only bo published, or 
made generally known, by Lectures and by the slow process of manu-

a College, and Professor of Divinity, ho hnd great facilities for making ,1 
the Gospel generally known. In addition to the members of noble 1 
families, and men educated for lay professions, those especially preparing 
for the Church attended hia Lectures, and were educated under his 
superiutendence ; taking with them into every parish throughout the 
whole country, the learning and imprtssions they had received in the^^ 
University, giving lectures upon his principles, and often becoming his^| 
willing agents in transcribing his works. The important part, taken 
by Wyclifib in preparing for the Reformation by the translation of 
the Scriptures, will be best seen by a short notice of the chief incidents 
of his life. 

John Wycliffe is said to have been bom in 1324 at a small village 
that name, near Richmond, in Yorkshire ; and, at the age of sixteen 
to have become one of the iirst members of Queen's College, founded 
in 1340, He was a fellow of Merton College in 1356. With muck 
natural talent, unwearied assiduity, and a facility in acquiring know- 
ledge, this diligent and unobtrusive student gained in the University 
great reputation for Lis learning, and faithful friends by hia decision 
of eliaracter, combined with kinduess of heart and unassuming mannera. 
He was deservedly popular, and was much attached to Oxford for the 
literary facilities and the nninterrupt^ quietude which he could not find 
anywhere so i^rfcct as in the University. During more than twenty 1 
years ho gratified his insatiable desire for knowledge on all subjeetd|^| 
never neglecting to devote a specified time for rending the Bible, making" 
all other knowledge subservient to the great object he ever kept in view, 
& thorough knowledge of the Scriptures. He read the Latin Fathers 
with great care, and studied Aristotle, the profound reasoner of the 
Greeks. As the Greek language and literature were little known and 
almost forgotten in England before the taking of Constantinople b 
the Turks in a. d. 1453, ^^cn the Greeks fled for refuge to other 
countries, where they introduced and interpreted the ancient On 
authors, Wycliffe had not the means of acquiring a knowledge of 
He could, therefore, study Aristotle only in the Latin translations 
commentaries. Even with such inadequate assistance he became a m 
subtle reasoner, and an unrivalled disputant, able to encounter 1 
intricacies of scholastic divinity. Ilis great opponent, the Chi*onicler 
Knighton, admits that, while Wycliffe vms genei-ally esteemed a mos 
eminent theologian, he had no equal in the employment of the scholas 
art of dispntation. 

About the year 1360, circumstances occurred which called fo 



Wycliffe's eitniordinary talents. Oxford was bo celebrated as a seat 
of learning in tho reig:n of Henry III, that an immense number of 
students camo to the Univeraity from all parts of Enj^land and from 
the Continent. Anthony Wood, in his Annals*, tells us they amounted 
to thirty thousand. Wlien all allowance is made for this almost in- 
credible estimate of the students by one of Oxford's most partial 
friends, it at least indicates the popularity of the University. By 
the undae inflneucc of the mendicant Friars, the younpfcr student* were 
tempted to leave the Colleges for the Convent, till they are said 
to have been reduced to six thousand. The Church of Rome, to r»- 
vire the monastic institutions, established the four orders of Mendicants, 
the Augustines, Carmelites, Dominicans and Franciscans. The first 
establLshment of the Dominicans was at Oxford in 1221. With other 
priWleges, the Popes had allowed the Friars the lil>erty of superintending 
education. They had their own exempt jurisdiction; and, in their un- 
remitted endeavours to gain converts by trespassing on the statutes 
of the University, they were involved in continual disputes with the 
Chancellor and Scholars. The University and the Church sufTorcd so 
much by this inttrrferenoe, tliat a Convocation was assembled, and a de- 
cree passed, that no youth, under the age of eighteen, should be received 
br the Friare into their onlers. The contest l)ccnme so warm and 
exasperating, that Wycliffe entered into the defence of his beloved 
University with such eeaJ, energy and success, as to confound the 
Priara. They could not resist his plain and honest reasoning. He 
orenrfaelmed them by his arguments and learning, and brought them 
mto popular disgrace by his pamphlets on the "able beggary" ab- 
•nrdly advocated by the Friars. 

l!be whole University was gratified by tbis display of Wycliffo's 
met^, talents and learning; and, in testimony of respect and gratitude, 
elected him Warden or Master of Balliol College or Hall, as it was then 
called. In the early part of 1361, he was presented by his College to 
the valuable Rectory of Fillingham in Lincolnshirt*, which he afterwards 
exchanged for Ludgershall in Buckinghamshire, that he might be within 
« fiftw miles of his nnmemns friends in the Ihiiversity. In the year 1365 
Simon do Islip, Archbiiihop of Canterbury, appointed him Warden of 
Canterbar>' Hall, now occupied by the Canterbury Quadrangle of Christ 
rh\irch. In 1367 he defended Etlward III. in refusing to pay Pope 
I 'ri:'an the triluite which had been claimed ever since it was exacted 
from* the weak King John. Wycliffe wrote with such ability, and used

such convincing arguments, as to prove, beyond any future doubt, tb4| 
illegality of the claim. The See of Rome was silent but indignant, 
looking upon Wycliffc with a jealous eye, as the cause of tbe defeat. 
In England tliis defence increased the fame of its author, and procured 
for him the favourable regard of the Duke of Lancaster and both Houses 
of Parliament. Edward III. had previously made him one of hi 

In 1372 Wycliffe was gratified by obtaining the chief desire of his 
^hdVrtj the election to the Pi-ofossorehip of Divinity. His whole life had 
''lieen spent in preparing himself for the faithful discharge of the duties 
dcvolviug on the Divinity Professor, Being elevated to a Proiessorship, 
which ei»a!ded hira to diffuse >vith authority that light which had 
already beamed on his own mind, he used great judgment in his lectures 
and in the theological discussions over which he presided. His experi^H 
ence taught hira that deep-rooted principles and old customs must be 
treated with a gentle baud. His heart was fillt^d with piety towards 
God and love to man, which were always manifested by liia unaffected 
Bimplicity of manner, in language as plain and expressive as it was 
elegant. His lectures always attracted a large audience, as he was ev< 
more desirous of correcting error by the statement of truth, than 
direct and personal attacks. When he had felt his way, and ha( 
obtained numerous supporters in the University, tbe majority of whom 
reiul and studied the Scriptures not only critically but practically; 
with such friouds, he threw off all reserve and spoke of vital religion, 
the religion of the heart with its practical results, and the best means o^^ 
promoting them amongst tbe people. His lectures and sermons wezi^| 
full of the Scriptures, forming short treatises on Di\nnity, worthy of the 
Oxford Professor. He entertained a deep conviction, that the only way 
of promoting vital and practical religion in the mass of the population, 
was by giving them the Word of God in their own tongue. He had, 
therefore, for some lime been engaged in translating the Seriptnres into 
English, from the Latin Vulgate, the authoi*ised version of the Church 
of that day. Many of his most able and faithful friends assisted him in 
this holy work. While he was increasing in Christian knowledge, and 
imparting it to the common peoi)le, as well as to those numerous 
students of the University who attended his Lectures for the aci|uisilion 
of that scriptural knowledge, wliich would enable them to discharge 
faithfully the duties of parish Priests throughout tiie whole land, — his 
reputation, his piety and worldly prosperity went hand in hand. His 
past services to the crown were rewarded in 1374, by his being present 




to the Tftlufible Rectory of Lutterworth. As eoclesiafltics were generally 
tbe best educated men of that time, and therefore well prepared to assist in 
state aifairs, Wycliffe wiis employed hy the Oovemment as a Diplomatist 
in several embassies. The See of Rome could not forget the robuko and 
victory of AVycIiQe. Though silent^ Rome was ever watehfnl for an 
opportnnity of crashing the successfid opponent. Wycliffe and his 
friends went on, with great zeal and energy, in their work of tmnslating 
and disaeminating the Scriptures. As his knowledge of revelation in- 
CTMfied, and Lis view of divine truth was cleared, he maniTested greater 
decision and Cully declared his religious opinions. When his friends, who 
had supported him from motives of state policy, saw that his govern- 
ing principle was scriptural tmth, they forsook him. The See of Rome 
seized the opportunity, and annoyed and persecuted him; but opposition 
coulil not retard his work. 

This brief notice must not be lengthened by entering into details : it 
is only necessary to state, that Courtney, ArchbiHliop of Canterbury, 
under tlie intiucncc of the Church of Rome, with the aid of the iVristoc- 
racy and the sanction of the timid Richard IT., brought a bill into the 
House of Lords to arrest Wycliffe and his followers, " and hold them in 
*' strong prison till they justify themselves according to the law and 
" reason of Holy Church*." As soon as the Bill hiul passed the Lords, 
Courtney endeavoured to carry it into effect. The House of Commons 
remonstrated upon its illegality, not having passed their house. The 
Chancellor of the L^niversity excused himself by declaring, that his own 
life and the peace of the University would be endangered, if Wycliffe 
were taken. To allay the fury of the storm, Wycliffe thought it prudent, 
in Nov. 138a, to retire to the country. But persecution was so severe 
vimd unrelenting, that he was compelled to descend from what had been 
throne — his jirofessorial chair, and to leave the University for ever. 
He sought retirement at Lutterworth, where, despite all opposition and 
persecution, he fearlessly wrote in defence of his doctrines, and proceeded 
in Ilia work of completing and revising the translation of the Scriptures, 
till hia death, on the last day of Dec. 1384. 

The bitter feeling and hostility of the See of Rome did not end with 
Wycliffo's death, but by a decree of the Council of Constance his remains 
wer^ disinterred in 1418, then burnt and the ashes cast into the Swift, 
a streamlet which runs by Lutterworthf. But Wycliffe lives, and ever

As Oxford was the chief scene of Wycliffe's literary eDJojrment ano^l 
fame, the home of his heart, a retreat which he always sought with 
pleasure and lefl with regret, it is gratifj'ing to know that Oxford has 
r^Ked an imperishable monument to Wyclifie's memory by publishing,^— 
at its own expense, the splendid edition in 4 vols. 4to. of ^M 

" The Holy Bible, containing the Old and New Testftments, with the Apoc- 
ryphal Books, in the earliest English Versions made from the Ijitin Vulgat© 
by John Wycliffe and his Followers ; edited by the Rev. Josiah Forshall, F.R.S.. 
etc., lute Fellow of Exeter College, and Sir Frotleric Madden, K,H. F.II.S. etcj 
Keeper of the MSS. in the British Museum. Oxford, at the University Preeftl 

This is one of the best, most laborious, and accurate editions of ani 
early English author I have ever seen. The editore have examined 
and described 170 MSS., and selected and most carefully printed two of 
the best in i)arallel columns, the first written before 1390, and the 
second before 1420. The Prologues and every available and desirabl^H 
information have been given. A \i^vy excellent and ample Glossary is^ 
appended to the 4th vol. Altogether, this edition is the work of sounc 
and ripe scholars, — an honour to the University of Oxford and ths 
press, as well as to the literary veterans, the editors. All must acknow< 
ledge with them, that "they have spared neither time nor pains 
render their work complete ;" especially when it is known, that " A 
considerable portion of their time, during nearly twenty-two years, 
been spent in accomplishing their task." — Pre/', p. xxxviii. 

Our text of Wycljffe's Gospels is founded upon the first version given in 
this Oxford edition of 1850, collated with tbc orijcinal MS. in the Bodleian,

Editlonfi of Wycliffe. — The Dumbers I. II. iiod ILL were from the text 
before 1420, adopted as the later text in the Oxford oditiou of 1850. 

I. The New Testament of Wycliffe was first printed in folio, London 1731, 
by the Bev. John Lewis, Minister of Margate, Kent, with a sliort Glossary or 
£xplailfttioQ of the old and obsolete words in Dr. Wycliffe*8 Translation. The 
text was taken from two MSS., one of which was his own [now, 1850, Sir F. 
Madden states, in the Bodleian, Gough, Keel Top. 5] and the other the property 
of Sir Edward Deering, Bart, now, 1850, of the Very Rev. Wm, Conybeare, 
dean of Llandaff. 

H. The Rev. Henry Baber, M. A., republished in 4to.| London i8io, % 
reprint of the jireceding with the following additions, which are very valuable, 
and deserve the attention of every scholar. "A short memoir of the Life, 
Opinions and Writings of Dr. Wycliffe : an historical account of the Saxon 
and English versions of the Scriptures which have been made previous to the 
fifteenth Century. The Glossary of Lewis at the end of the vol is corrected 
and considerably enlarged." (p, t.) 

III. The New Testament in the same version as that published by tho 
BcT. Jnbn Lewis was ag^n published in 1841, from a MS. then belonging to 
H. R. H. the Dake of Sussex, [now, 1 850, in tho collection of the earl of 
Aabbumham,] by Heasn. Bagster, in the English Hexaplo, ^to. Lond. 1841.

ever been printed^ with tho exception of the Song of Solomon, ^ven by Dr. 
Adam Clarke in his commentary on the Bible, [8 vols. 4to. Lond. 1 8 1 0-35,]

with tmtli. Such was William Tjudalej as will be seen hy a few par- 
ticnlar« of his life. William Tyndale, the second of three sons of John 
Tyndale of Hunt's Court, in the parish of North Nihley, in Gloucester- 
shire, is said to have been bom there about the year 1484. He descended 
irom Hugh Baron de Tyndale. At an early age he was sent to Oxford. 
John Foxe tells us, Wm. Tyndale " was brought up from a child in the 
University of Oxford, where he by long* continuance grew up and in- 
cnased, as well in the knowledge of tongues and other li1>eral arts ; as 
specially in the knowledge of the Scriptures, whereunto his mind was 
dngnlarly addicted; insomuch that he read privily to certain students 
and fellows of Magdalen College some parcel of di>Tnit3'. His manners 
mod convcrgation were such that all, who knew him, reputed and 
esteemed him to be a man of most virtnous disposition and of life un- 
spotted. Thus he in the University of Oxford, increasing more and 
more in learning, and proceeding in degrees of the schools, spying his 
time, removed from thence to the University of Cambridge." He pro- 
bably went to Cambridge with the view of profiting by the instructioa 
of Erasmus, who lectured on the Greek languac^ in that University, 
from 1509 till the beginning of 1^14. At Cambridge he formed aa 
acquaintance with a young and diligent student, John Frith, who after- 
wards assisted him in his translation of the New Testament. It must 
have been about 1518, in his thirty-fourth year, when, as Foxe tells usj 
Tynilale " had made his abode a certain space now further ripened in 
the knowledge of God's word, leaving that University also, he resorted 
to one Maister Welch, a knight of Gloucestershire, and was there school- ^^ 
maister to his children, and in good favour with his maister." This waa^^f 
Sir John Welch, of Little Sodburj', at whose house T)Tidale held many 
disputes on religious subjects with the clerical dignitaries of the neigh- 
bourhood, who frequented Sir John's table. This brought him into so 
much danger, that he deemed it prudent to leave the country and go to^H 
London. ^^ 

It is difficult to fix the time of his ordination ; wo only know that, 
after preaching at St. Dnnstan's in the West the same earnest and 
practii^ sermons delivered in the country, ho attempted to obtain 
the patronage of Tonstall, Bishop of London, by sending his translation 
of the Attic Greek Orator, Isocrates. He was unsuccessful, as the 
Bishop's palace was full; but an eminent merchant, Humfrey Monmouth, 
a favourer of Luther, admitted him into his house; and when T)'ndale 
" undcrstode at the laste, not only that there was no rowme in my lorde 
of london's palace to translate the now testament, but also that there < 



was no place to do it in all englonde," [Prol. to Pentateuch, 1530,] he 
determined to go to Germany. Ills friend Monmouth settled upon 
him an annuity of ten pounds, about ^150 of our money, and paid his 
passage that he might live abroad and finish his translation of the New 
Testament from Greek into English. He is said to have gone to Witten- 
berg tfl confer with Luther, who published in 1522 his first edition of 
his New Testament in German. Tvndale and his friend John Frith 
were driven from place to place, till at last they settled in the free 
imperial city of Worms on the Rhine, wliere Tyndale's first edition of 
the New Testament was printed at the end of 1525 or in the early part 
of 1526, in very small octavo. 

The beautiful facsimile edition of Mr. Francis Fry, F.S.A., has been noticed 
and the full title given in the notes on Tynd&le\s translation*. He has token 
K> much pains to ac<}uire accurate infomiation, as to tlic printer, the place and 
the date of this first etiition of Tyndale*8 New Testament, that I gladly refer 
to bis satisfactory introduction, illustrated by facsimiles. I have only room 
for a very brief summary. Peter Schoffer on becoming a Lutheran, found it 
oeeeauiy to leave Mayence, and to settle in the free city of Worms in 151a. 
Foartcen works printed by Schoffer from 1518 to 1529, seven of which have the 
imprint Worms, Iiave l>ccn carefully compared with the capital letters, the three 
nzca of typ4^, the woodcut of St Paul, and the numerals uge<l in the New Testa- 
ment of Tyndale, and tliey perfectly accord. Kot only the type, but the length 
of the lines and their number in eacli ]>af^, are exactly the same in the two 
German editions of the Prophets as in Tyudale's Testament. The wftter-marks 
in the paper are ulsu the same. If then the same type, the lengtli and the 
number of lines in a page, the same woodcut and water-mark are found in the 
other works of Schoffer, printed at Worms, as in Tyndale'a New Testament of 
1^26, can there bo any reasonable donbt that it was printed at Worms by 
PHer Schoffer, corroborated as this inference is by the Lutheran profession of 
Schoffer, and the residence of Tyndale at Worms I There is not any date in 
tlie Testament ; but, as Cocblnus cause<l T^iidale to flee to Worms in the 
nuddle of 15351 and the Testament was printed there immediately after, we 
may conclude it was published by the end of that year, or the beginning of the 
ncil, as it was sold in Oxford "before the 7th of Feb. 1526!." 

There is an imperfect copy of Tyndale's New Testament of 1526 in the 
library of St, Paul's Cathedral. The only copy known to exist, perfect from 
Xlit beginning of St. Matt to the end of Revelation, is in the Baptist's College, 
r : rol. Of this Bristol copy, Mr. Fry has taken a very correct facsimile,

Our gratitude is due to the free dty of Worms, for the protect 
of Tyndale, while printing the first edition of hie New Teetament* In 
Engluud's days of darkness and persecution, on the false plea of relip;ion, 
wliich, when pure, and under the mild and e^'mpathiziug influenoe of 
the Gospel, abhors tyranny, we are deeply indebted to Hamburg and 
other free cities of Germany ; and, in after times of still greater gloom, 
to Holland and Switzerland for their friendly reception and protectio 
of our refugee countrymen, when their lives were imperilled at home, for 
conscientiously adhering to those truths which they had learned from: 
the Scriptures. In these free cities and states, onr countrymen wi 
received as brethren, with honour, — their talents and learning acknow- 
ledged, and their works printed and published. Though T^iidale had 
the reputation of being well versed in modem as well as ancient lan- 
guages, we should not have known the extent of his lingual acquire- 
ments, nor whether the first impression of his New Testament waa^J 
large or small, if the following facts iu the year 1526 had not been re-^| 
corded, by the friendly hand of a foreigner, in the diary of Spalatinus, ' 
secretary of Frederic, the elector of Saxony, and supporter of Luther. 
Von Busche, Professor of Hebrew in the University of Marburg, a per- 
sonal iriend of Tyndale, " told us that six thousand copies of the New 
Testament in the English language had been printed at Worms ; and 
that this translation had been made by an Englishman, sojourning there 
with two other natives of England, who was so skilled in seven lan- 
guages, Hebrew, Greek, Latin, Italian, Spanish, English, and German, 
that whichever he might be speaking, you would think it to be his 
native tongue*." 

The quarto translation wath notes, partly printed at Cologne, vrw 
finished at Worms in 1526, as well as the very small octavo already 
described. The Dutch booksellers found such ready sale for Tyudale'a. 
translation, that tliey issued several ^Kiitions, without any correction or 
supervision of the ti-auslator, who is supposed to have gone to Hamburg 
afl^r 1516 to obtain the best Hebrew criticism, from the learned Jews in 
that city, and to correct what he had translateil of the Old Testament 
by the original Hebrew. There he met ivith Miles Coverdale, who 
assisted him in translating the five books of Moses into English, printed

by the Hambarg* press in 1530. Tyndale's English version of Jonah 
iamed firom the same press in 1531. We next hear of Tyndalo at Ant- 
werp, where he found a faithful friend in Thomas Poyntz, an English 
merchant, who cordially received him into his house. While residing 
in thiA respected family, besides preaching to the English residents, he 
most carefully revised hb translation of the New Testament, and in 
1534, after the lapse of eight years, published it with this title : — 

The Newe Testament, dylygoutly corrected and compared with the Oreke 
by Willyam Tindale : and fyaesshed in the ycre of cure Lordc God anno M.D. 
and XXXIIIL in the monetli of Noucmber. — Then follows. " W. T vnto the 
Reader. Here thou hast (mooat deare reader) the New Testament, or covenaunt 
mode wyth as of God in Chriates blonde. Which I have looked over aga)'ne 
(now at the last), with all dylygcncc, and compared it vnto the Greke, and have 
veded onte of it many fautos, which lackc of hetpe at the begynninge and 
ovtTvyght dyd sowe tberin." 

Tyndale's translation of the Scriptures bad been denounced by public 

authority in England ; and, by an imperiiU decree promulgjited at the 

diet of Augsburg in 1530, persons accused of heresy could be seized and 

cast into prison. Those who opposed the reading of the Scriptures in 

the language of the people were enraged when they saw the increased 

sapply of the English version ; and, availing themselves of the imperial 

dtcne, they employed secret influence and agency for the capture of 

TVndale. Henry Philips was sent to Antwerp, who, under the guise 

of friendship, inveigled him from the house of Po}Titz in August 1535, 

and then delivered him into the hands of the oflioers, sent to apprehend 

him a« a denounced heretic. Tj-ndale was at once conveyed to the 

Castle of Vilvoord, about eighteen miles fi'om Antwerp. Tliongh great 

efforta were made for his liberation, they were all ineffectual ; for, afler 

being confined in prison more than a year, he was brought to trial ; and 

"at last/' says Foxe, "he was condemned by virtue of the Emperor's 

decree, made in the assembly at Augsburg; and upon the same brought 

fbrtli to the pkce of execution ; was there tied to a stake ; and then first 

etmngled by the hangman, and afterword with fire consumed, in the 

inomiAg [* of October 6th], at the town of Vilvoord, in the year 1536, 

when he was about the ago of fifty-two. Thus much of William Tyndole, 

who, for his notable pains and travail^ may be worthily called an apostle 

of England/'

xxviii PREFACE. ^H 

Though Henry VTII did not appear to have any connection wit^ 
carrying into effect this arhitrary, unjust and cruel decree, Tyndalel 
earnestly and with a loud voice prayed at the stake — " Lord! open the' 
King of Enf^land's eyes !" — Tlie prayer of the djnng martyr was heard ; 
for, before the close of 1536, the first volume of the Holy Scriptures iiii 
English ever printed in this country, the folio edition of the *Ncw^J 
Testament, issued from the press of the king's own printer,' with the name 
of William Tyndale on the title. Nay more, when what is generally^ 
caWcd Ma/f/iew*s Biifle was published in 153", the king gave his royal 
" Licence that the same may he sold, and read of every person, without 
" danger of any act, proclamation, or ordinance heretofore granted toj 
" the contrary." This Bible received its designation from the name of 
Tliomas Matthew being given on the title-page. It was chiefly a i-epub-i 
lication of Tyndalc's vereion ; but those parts of the Old Testament, 
which he did not live to translate, were taken from Covordale's Bible c^ 
1535, The New Testament of Tyndale had been in circulation for elcvea 
years; and it was the best translation und popular, becatise the language 
was familiar to the people. Some of the Prologues and notes of Tj-ndale 
had been introduced into Matthew's Bible, and given offence and raised 
opposition. To remove these objections Archbishop Cranmer, with th 
king's sanction, proposed the publication of the whole Bible without 
note or comment. He had the translation of Tj-ndalc copied, and sent 
in portions to the Bishops for their correction, and then to be return 
to iiim for his final revision. This version was published in 1539, and 
is known as Cranmer^s, or the Great Bidle, the first that was authorbsed 
" to be sett up in eumme convenyent place within the ehurche, whereat 
the parishners may rede yt." Tlie Great Bible was the authorized^J 
version in the reign of Henry and Edward; and, after the death of^^ 
Mary, it was authorized by Elizabeth, and continued in general use till 
superseded by the revised edition of ij68 under the superintendence of 
Archbishop Parker, assisted by the most learned Bishops, hence called 
the Bishofii^ Bible. The first rule, recommended by King James I, i 
the preparation of our present authorized version of 161 1, was this, — 
" The ordinary Bible read in the Church, commonly called the Biakop^ 
** Biblf, to be followed, and as little altered as the original will permit.'* 
From this very brief detail^ it appears that our present English Version, 
was based upon the Bishops' Bible of 1568, and that upon Cranmer's of 
1539, which was a new edition of Matthew's Bible of i537j partly from 
^Coverdale of 1535, l>ut chiefly from Tjndale; in other words, that our 

* A copy U in the Dodlei&ii. 


present authorized translation is mainly that of Tyndale, made from 
the orijj^inal Uebrew and Greek, It has stood the lest of the severest 
criticism, from his last revision to the present time, without material 
alteration; becaase T)'ndale, having- a eritieal knowledge of Hebrew and] 
Greek and deep Christian experience, eaufjht the very spirit of the 
original, and gave the impression of it in plaiui idiomatic English. His 
style is easy, correct and vigorous. His translation of the New Testa- 
ment is a Roe specimen of our language, in what may be called the first 
stage of maturity. It is the'foundation of our si-aitdard Iranfthtion, which 
is also the standard of our Unffuage. He avoids Latin derivatives, and 
gmeraily uses indigenous words, the strong and expressive Saxon terms, 
known by all the pcc»ple. In this respect our version happily follows 
him. Tyndale translates tt\v ayhniv roO Qtov^ Lk. xi. 42, the love of 
Godf which our established version has adopted ; but Wycliffe has ike 
ckarite of God, from the Vulgate c/tarlfafem Dei. Our translators seldf)m 
depart from Tyndale, but when they do, in a particular word, the spirit 
of the passage is often lost; for instance, in i Cor. xiii. 13, Tyndale has, 
— j>Wtf afjideth faiflkj hope and love, even these thre ; but the chefe of these 
M love [}) ayatrr]]. Love is divine affection in the soul, for God w love 
\m 6 0€Off AydTp; iariv]. Faith in the Saviour is iXxc foundation of good 
rorks, ho/)e raises the superstructure, and love completes and crowns it 
eternity. FuitA works b}' love, and love is the f» If I ling of tJie law 
[vX^pw/ia wJ^u 1^ Ayajn;]. The perfection of a good work is, that it 
mngs from love. Eveiy Christian knows this to l>e his i*uling prin- 
Aplc. We have an illustration of it in lilial love. How dillerent is the 
ling and conduct of an alTcctionate child from that of a servant! The 
'cliild, influenced by love, is unwearied in attention, and the only hope is 
an increase of mutual affect ion ; while the ser\'ant^6 constraining principle 
is naturally the hope of material %'oyes. Tims, while Christian love is 
itlic constraining principle of action here, and the fulfilling of the law, 
rwhcn oar prescntyaiM is lost in sight, ixwA' hope iti enjoyment, this ay(5irr; 
will continue, and increase throughout eternity. — Now, if this be the 
^teral and true meaning of St. Paul's Greek, let lore be substituted for 
irit^f wherever it occurs in i Cor. xiii., as it is in Tyndale i jj'^, fol- 
>wed by Coverdale 1535, Matthew 1.537, Archbishop Cranmer 1539, 
fftnd Parker 156K, — and there can Ite little doubt that lore is more in 
'Jkcoordance with the scope of the chapter than charil^^ and that Tyndale's 
last clanse, — the chefe of these is love, is far better than the Vulgate major 
kerum est cliaritas, or than WycliOc's, — the vioost of thes is charite, or 
than our vcrsinn, — ih^ great t^st of these is charity. 


Before I close my Preface, I must have the pleasure of alluding 
to tlie friendly assistance I have received in the proparation and priutiug" 
of these Gospels. First, and most of all, I am deeply indebted to 
George Waring-, Esq., M.A., of Trinity College, Cambridge, and Mag- 
dalen Hall, Oxford, whose contributions to Anglo-Saxon philology aa 
editor, for the Surtees Society, of the Lindisfame and Ruehworth Glosses, 
are already before the public. Many years ago the text of the Gothic 
and Anglo-Saxon Gospels had been very carefully transcribml, and the 
Anglo-Saxon collated with the oldest and best MSS. The final revision 
had been long deferred in consequence of other pressing engagements 
and failing fjight, till all impediments were removed in the early part 
of 1864 by my friend, who made an arrangement with the Publisher to 
take the responsibility of preparing my transcript for the press, and 

seeing it accurately printed: of harmonizing the division of verses, 

and the punctuation of the Gothic, Anglo-Saxon, and the translation 
of Tyndalo witli Wycliife and our authorized version : and of regidating, 
as far as possible, the accents, which indicate the long sound of the 
Anglo-Saxon vowels over which they arc placed. The accent on 
diphthongs is here omitted, except when found in the MSS., as it was 
not employed by Dr. Grimm and others to denote the length of the 
vowel, but merely to indicate the etymological origin of the accented 
vowel. Every accent in the Anglo-Saxon text, therefore, denotes the 
long sound of the vowel over which it is placed, and the diphthongs 
60, ea, etc. aro accented exactly as in B. or in C. 


Aa the Bimplicity of Anglo-Saxon ftccentuation has frequently been orS!^ 
looked, or involved in a complicated system, it will tend to remove false 
pressions, and to make the matter clear, by rocoHccting that the Anglo-Saxons 
only used one accent, which always indicated the long sound of the vowel over 
which it was placed. Our complicated system of English vowels arose from 
the Norman scribes, who first confused the Anglo-Saxon accents, and ihea 
attempted to supply their place by a multiplicity of vowels, which wo have 
adopted, as will be seen by the following examples : — Cwcn m cwienj (ct fiei^ 
[es geeae, etc. : — Die a di^, lie like, lim lime, win wirie, etc : — Roc a book, for 

i, hrfor% god good, gcs a ffooae, etc. : — Du thou, hii hoie, bus « Itoufe, mua 
a tnoius, etc : — Bryd a hrid€, (yrjire, mys mice. In all these instances tho 
Anglo-Saxon is quite plain and couaiatcnt, expressing the same sound by tlie 
same accented vowel, while the English employs diD'erent vowels for the same 
purpose, as in cweco, geese ; — good, goo8«, ford ; — thou, how, hcuse, and mouaft. 
'Ilie greatest complication of vowels is seen in our expression of the long open 
sound of 0, hcaid in no and bone. We use oc, oa, and with a silent final e 



ini- ^M 




while the Anglo-SazonSi in all coses, merely accented the £, as, — ^Da a (2oe, fa 
• ,/be, la d toe, ete, — Bat a &oa/, iIc an oat, fom /oam^ etc. — Ban a fronc, stan 
a «tone, <te. TUs superabundant employment of English vowels is troublesome 
to nativea, and most perplexing to foreigners. On the contrary, the Anglo- 
Saxon system of accenting the long vowels is plain and definite. Mr. Waring 
haa been gmded by these general principles in accenting the Anglo-Saxon, but 
Gothic words have not been accented, because not a single accent has been 
(ottad ia God. Arg. Every possible care has, however, been taken to secure 
the greatest verbal accuracy in tho Gothic and Anglo-Saxon texts, as well as 
in the other two. 

I believe Mr. Waring has exerted himself to the uttermost to fulfil 
his enga^L-ment, and I have dt'voted a far longer time to the work 
than I &nticipnt4?d would be at my disposal. Neither labour nor expense 
hms been spared, when either could be profitably employed to benefit 
the work. I have, therefore, not only willingly assisted in preparing* 
the MS. for the press, collated tho B text with the C, but I have 
Cftrefully read over every proof t>vice and the revnse once, after being 
read in the same manner by Mr. Waring, and by a friend ; every sheet 
has, therefore, been carefully read over at least nine times. 

Mr. Waring sugeeste<l and superintended tlie placing of |» and d, or tl»e 
bard and soft sound of our modem M, as they are used in all parts of England 
at the present day. Though In our numerous provincial Dialects almost 
every letter has a diversity of sounds, I believe there is greater unilormity 
in the bard and soft sound of our f/i, — the Anglo-Saxon |> and d, — than in 
any other letters. jVs the true archaism of our good old English and its 
nervous energy arc retained in the provincial Dialects of our Istnnd*, I have 
no doubt ttie original and genuine hard and soft sounds of the Anglo-Saxon 
^ and d have been transmitted to us by tlto secluded peasantry of our rural 
districts, and confirmed by those educated in our Universities and towuij. 
Tha only way then of recovering tho right sound of ]) and d, and of correctly 
Applying those obaracters in writing and printing Anglo-Saxou, is to adopt 
the truA English sound of these tetters. If the two distinct sounds of our 
modem A have been faithfully conveyed to us, we only ascend to Anglo-Saxon 
times and re-adopt their rational system by using their two distinct characters 
for these two distinct sounds. The Nonnou scribes could not distinguish 
between the liard and soft sonnd of }> and d ; they therefore, in writing Anglo- 
g*-r/w, confounded them, using the one or the other without any apparent 
■Katmg timL Somc Bcribes only employed or d, which is the same letter

in a modified form, aa in the Rushworth Gloss, wLich discards tbe nse of 
altogether in St. Mark, Luke, and John. Hence the fA for both Bounda in 
modern English, to the confusion of foreigners. Our present printed Anglo- 
Saxon text, indicating the true, tlie distinct hard and soft sound of th hy |» an 
d, will l)e a great assistance to foreigners, in showing the correct pronunciatio 
ot th, in English words cognate with the Anglo-Saxon. 

The hard, sharp, or acuto sound of the English Ch in thm and soo^i, ifl 
represented by the Anglo-Saxon p and }> ; the soft, flat, or grave sound of T 
in THino and sooTIle is represented by D, d or 8. 

For ascertaining tbe hard and soft sound of ^j, equally applicable to EugU 
aud Anglo-Saxon, are given the following general 



I. The hard, sharp or acute p or |», is used in the beginning of alt wot 
not pronominal, as ))incan to Mink, |>in Min. 

a. And at th» end of radical and iuilectional terminations, as hsei^ a 
elaji cloM, s6|» Booth, |)inc|) tJiinketJi. Except wid wixu, et«. 

b. And sometimes when th is preceded or followed by a consonant, aa 
cmbj)cncuii to ihiixk ubout ; 6)ines easiness ; )>ritig Mirty. 

U. The soft, flat or grave D, d or 5 is used in tbe beginnifhff cj/* aU 
pronouns and of all words derived &om pronouns, as diet TDat ; do TUe ; 
dcslic liUe tui>, dononnc TH^nce, dferdser rucre. 

a. Also often between two vowels, as badu baTUS, badian to baTHe, cladam_ 
with cloTHes. 

These Rules ore in perfect accordance with those given in our best 
on orthoepy. 

In the printing department, we have had the most willing aasistani 
and co-operation from all engaged in the work at the University 
to whom our thanks are due. 

To the Master of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, Dr. Pulling? 
to the Rev. Henry Octavius Cose, M. A., Librarian, and to tbe Afisistjint- 
Librarians of tbe Bodleian, Oxford, I am greatly indebted, for the most 
ready and friendly aesistance, in the consultation and use of MSS. under 
their core. Though 1 had carefully collated the whole of the Bene't, or 
Corpus MS. of the Anglo-Saxon Gospels, with my own copy, in 183a, 
aud examined it again iu 1841, I have frequently had to constilt it 
since 1850, While the stringent regulations, made by Archbishop 
Parker, for the preservation of the MSS. and printed books left 
Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, have been observed, the Mast4 
Dr. Pulling, aud the Fellows of the College, have had the happy 



of giring ereiy facility, in so friendly a manner as to avoid tlie least 
appearance of conferring a favour. The same may be said of Dr. Guest, 
Master of Caius College, who has most kindly removed doubts by 
consulting the MS. My best and most willing acknowledgments are 
due to the Pev. J. E. B. Mayor, M.A., Librarian of the University 
of Cambridge, and to Henry Bradshaw, Esq., M.A., Fellow of King's 
College, for their ready assistance in procuring a Grace of the Senate 
to take out of the Library one of their treasures, the MS. of the 
Anglo-Saxon Gospels. I have, therefore, had the great advantage of 
the unrestrained possession and use of this MS. for reference, during 
the time the Anglo-Saxon text has been passing through the Oxford 
Unirersity Preie.

Chap. TII. i In those dayea Jhon 
the Baptiser cam^ and preached in the 
wilderaes off Jnry, 

a Sa>-nge, Kepent, the kyngdome of 
hevcn ia at houde. 

3 I'his is he, of whom it is spoken be 
the prophet, Esay, which sayeth, The 
voycc off a cryer in wyldemcs, Prepare 
the Lordes way; and make hys pathes 

4 This Jhon had hys garment off camels 
hccr, and a gerdcU off a skynne aboute 
his loynea ; hys meate was locustes, and 
wylde hony. 

5 Then went oute to hym Jcrosalem, 
and all Jury, and all the region rounde 
aboute Jordan ; 

6 And were baptised of hym in Jori- 
dan, knoledging their synnes. 

7 When he sawc many off the Phari- 
ses and off the Saduces come to hys bap- 
tism, he sayde vnto them, generacion 
of v-ipers, who hath taught you to fle 
from the vengcaunce to come 1 

8 Brynge forth therefore the fratea 
beloDgynge to repentaunce. 

9 And se that ye ons thinke not to 
saye in yourselves. We have Abraham to 
oure father ; for I say vnto you, that 
God is able off these stones to rayse vp 
chyldren vnto Abraham. 

10 Even nowe is the ax put vnto the 
rote of the trees ; soo that every tree 
which bringeth not fforthe goodc frutc, 
sbalbe hewue doune.and cast into the fyre. 

1 1 I baptise you in water, in token 
of repentaunoo ; but he that cometh 
after me is myghtier then I, whoso 
ahues I am not worthy to beare ; he shal 
baptise you with the Holy Gost and with 

12 Which hath also his fan in his 
hond, and will pourge his floore, and 
gadre the wheet into his gamer ; and 
will bume the chaffe with evcrlastyngo 

13 Then cam Jesus from Oalile into 
Jordan to Jhon, ffor to be baptised off

»S Be thou consentynge to thin nd-

way with hym, lest perauiuture thin aU- 
nersaric t&ke thee to the domesman, and 
tbedomeeman take thee to the m^mygtre, 
and thou bo scute in to priaonn. 

26 Trewely I say to thee, Ttiou ahalt 
not go thennes, til thou ^eldc the last 

97 3^ han herd for it was said to olde 
men. Thou shalt nat do leoherye. 

a8 Foreothe T say to 300, for why 
eaery man tliftt secth a wommau for to 
con«ite hire, now he hath do lecheiie by 
hire in his herte. 
79 That jif thi rijt eije sclaundre thee, 
le it out, and cast it fro thee ; for it 
editfa to thee, that oon of thi memhris 
periahe, than a! thi body go in to belle. 

30 And jif thi rijt bond sclaundre thee, 
kitt it awey, and cast it fro tiie« ; for it 
spcflith to thee, that oon of thi membria 
perisbe, than that al thi body go in to 

31 Foraothe it is said, Who cuere shal 
Iwue his wyf, jene he to hir a libel.^ 

31 Sothdy T say to 50U, that euery 

man that shal leeue his wyf, outakcn 

caoM of foniicacioun, he makith hire do 

'10, and he that weddith the forsaken 

. Juth auoutrie. 

3 j Kfle soonys jee ban herd, that it was 

said to olde men, Thou shalt not for- 

Hwere, sothely to the Lord thou shalt 

3eeld thin oethis. 

34 Foreothe Y say to jon, to nat swero 
on al manere ; neither by hcuene, for it 
is the trone of Qod ; 

35 Nether by the erthe, for it is the 
stole of his feet ; neither by Jerusalem, 
(or it is the citec of a greet kyng ; 

36 Neither thou shalt bwere by thin 
beaed, for thou maist not make oon 
beer whyt, or blok j 

37 But be 5oure word 3ea. 3ca ; Nay, 
nay ; forsothe that that is more than 
this, is of yxie\. 

25 Agre with thine iwlvcraary at once, 
whyles thou arte in the waye with hym, 
lest thine adversary delj-vre the to the 
indge, and the iudgc delivre the to tlie 
minister, and then thou be cast in to 

26 I say unto the vcrely, Thou shalt not 
come out thence, till thou have payed the 
vtmost farthinge. 

27 Te have herde howe yt was sayde to 
them off olde tyme. Thou shalt nott com* 
mitt advoutrie. 

aB But I say mto yon, that whosoever 
eycth a wyfc lustynge afftcr her, hatha 
committed advoutrie with her alredy in 
his hert. 

29 Wierfore yf thy right eye ofTende 
the, pluekc bym out, and cast^i him from 
the ; better hit is for the, that one of thy 
membres perisahe, then that thy whole 
body ebuld be caste in to hell. 

30 Also yf thy right honde offend the, 
cut bym off, and e^stc h>Tn from the ; 
better hyt ys, that one off thy membres 
pcrisshe, then that all thy body ahulde be 
caste in to hell. 

31 Hit ys sayd, Wbosoerer put awaye 
his wyfe, let bym geve her a testymonyall 
of her dcvorceraent. 

32 But I say vnto you, wboeoever put 
owaye hys wjrfe, except hyt he for fornica- 
tion, causcth her to breakc matrimony, 
and whosoever maryeth her that is di- 
vorsed, breketh wedlocke. 

33 Agayne ye have henle, howe it was 
sayd to them off olde tyme, Tliou shalt 
not forswcre thy silfc, but shaltt performo 
thyue olhe to God. 

3^ But I say vnto yon, swere not at all ; 
nether by beveu, for hit ys Qoddcs 

35 Nor yet by the erth, ffor it ya hys 
fote stole J nether by Jerusalem, ffor bit 
ys the cite of the grete kynge ; 

36 Nether shalt thou sweare by thy 
heed, because thou canst not make one 
beer whyte, or blacke ;

honorcth me with their Ij-ppcs, but their 
hert is farrefrom me ; 

7 In vayne they worabippe me, teach- 
inge doctryns which are nothiuge but 
the commandcmentes offincn. 

8 For ye laye the comraandcment of 
God aparte, and ye observe the tradi- 
ciuns uf men, as the we»singc off cruses, 
and off cuppea ; and many otltcr suche 
lyke thinges ye do. 

9 And he sayde vnto them, ^Vell ye 
putt awaye the commandunient of God, 
to maj'ntayne youre owuc trudecions. 

10 For Moses aayde, Uononre thy 
father and thy mother ; and whosoever 
sayeth ev)*U to his father or mother, let 
hym dey for it. 

1 1 But ye snyc, A man shall aaye to 
his father or mother, Corban, that is, 
^\^lataoever thynge I offer, that same 
doeth proffit the ; 

12 Aiid ye soffre no more that a man 
do eny thynge for liis father or mother. 

13 And thus hiive yc mode the com- 
maundcment off God off none effecte 
through youre awne tradicions, which 
ye have ordcyned ; and many socho 
thyngcs yc do. 

14 And he called all tlio people vnto 
liyni, and saj'de ^*nto thcra, Herken 
vnto me every one off you, and vnder-
