02 Daily Verse / 1534 Tyndale NT / Beatitudes (Matt 5:1-16)

Today’s Bible Verse is from the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 5, verses 1 to 16. These verses are some of the most widely known verses in the New Testament, and rightly so, since this is the beginning of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount.

The verses below (Matthew 5:10-12) may have been especially poignant to William Tyndale since he was persecuted and slandered by the English government and church authorities and would eventually be killed in October 1536 for the work he was doing.

5:10 “Blessed are they which suffer persecution for righteousness sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 5:11 Blessed are ye when men revile you and persecute you and shall falsely say all manner of evil sayings against you for my sake. 5:12 Rejoice and be glad for great is your reward in heaven. For so persecuted they the Prophets which were before your days.”

This is my first ever YouTube video with a real human voice instead of the Text-to-Speech (TTS) software for the Bible narration. The voice of the narrator is mine and I am not a trained narrator. I hope my skills will improve with time. It may be a short-lived experiment, but you have to start somewhere, right?

01 Today’s Bible Verse is 1st Timothy 6:17-19. It is read from the 1534 William Tyndale New Testament (a revision of Tyndale’s 1526 New Testament).

Modern Spelling:

Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not exceeding wise, and that they trust not in the uncertain riches, but in the living God, which giveth us abundantly all things to enjoy them, and that they do good and be rich in good works, and ready to give and to distribute, laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come that they may obtain, eternal life.
