01 Daily Verse / 1534 Tyndale NT / Ryche in Good Workes & Redy to Geve

01-DBV-Tyn34-1Tim6v17-19

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.

Original Spelling:

Charge them that are ryche in this worlde/ that they be not excedynge wyse/ and that they trust not in the vncertayne ryches/ but in the livynge god/ which geveth vs aboundantly all thynges to enioye them/ and that they do good and be ryche in good workes/ and redy to geve and to distribute/ layinge vp in store for them selves a good foundacion agaynst the tyme to come yt (that) they maye obteyne eternall lyfe.

Video: TTS Reading – 2 Peter 3:8-10 (1526 Tyndale NT)

2Pet-3v8-10-Oct3-FI-FEB

Below is another video from our new YouTube changes. It is a Bible reading from the 1526 William Tyndale New Testament that has been done using Text-to-Speech (TTS) software.

The YouTube video shows the original spelling. Below is the modern spelling of these verses.

Any who are familiar with the King James Bible will recognize how similar the King James is to Tyndale’s translation.

“Dearly beloved be not ignorant of this one thing how that one day is with the Lord as a thousand year and a thousand year as one day.

The Lord is not slack to fulfill his promise as some men count slackness: but is patient to usward and would have no man lost but would receive all men to repentance.

Nevertheless the day of the lord will come as a thief in the night in the which day the heavens shall perish with terrible noise and the elements shall melt with heat and the earth with the works that are therein shall burn.”

William Tyndale – A Few Quotes

John Foxe in his book, Foxe’s Book of Martyrs, attributes this famous saying to William Tyndale:

“If God spare my life, ere many years I will cause a boy who drives the plough to know more of the scriptures than you do.” (Tyndale was in a discussion with a member of the clergy.)

I believe the next quote from William Tyndale is contained in one of his many prologues in his Old and New Testament Bible translations:

“I perceived how that it was impossible to establish the lay people in any truth except the Scripture were plainly laid before their eyes in their mother tongue.”

If memory serves me well, this third quote comes from a letter William Tyndale wrote to his friend, John Frith, who also died a martyr’s death.

“I call God to record against the day we shall appear before our Lord Jesus, that I never altered one syllable of God’s Word against my conscience, nor would do this day, if all that is in earth, whether it be honor, pleasure, or riches, might be given me.”

Jesus is Emmanuel (God With Us)

Listen to page 3 of the Tyndale New Testament published in the year of 1526. It is read by a computer synthesized voice. Page 3 is Matthew 1:20 to 2:6 and includes the portion of Scripture where the unborn Jesus is called Emmanuel.

The name Emmanuel means: “God with us.” I am sure there are many things this name indicates to us about Jesus. These are just two I can think of, at the moment. One: It indicates His Divinity, and two: it may reference His coming to earth in human form.

I am thankful William Tyndale made the brave decision to translate the New Testament from Greek into English despite the threat of cruel punishment he faced. It is a compliment to his skill as a translator that so much of his work is reflected in the King James Bible which came about 85 years later.

Thanks for reading! Please feel free to leave feedback and comments.

Master Save Me (Matthew 14:28-33)

Listen to the audio of these verses:

Matthew-Jesus-walks-on-water-Peter-Aug-6-2018-with-transcript

This is a portion of the Gospel of Matthew as published in the 1526 Tyndale New Testament. I have included a screenshot of the original page as it is found at archive.org with my transcription of the text under the original blackletter script. Modern day spelling of words which may not be recognizable are enclosed in parentheses. For example, where the original has “shyppe,” I have transcribed “shyppe(ship).”

Matthew 14:28-33

14:28 Peter answered, and sayde (said): master, and
thou be he, bidde (bid) me come vnto (unto) the (thee)
on the water.
14:29 and he sayde (said) come. And when Peter was
come doune (down) out of the shyppe (ship), he
walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
14:30 But when he sawe (saw) a myghty (mighty)
winde (wind), he was afrayed (afraid). And as he
began to synke (sink), he cry-ed (cried) sayinge
(saying): master save me.
14:31 And immediatly (immediately) Je-sus (Jesus)
stretched forth his honde (hand), and caught him, and
saide (said) to hym (him): O thou of lytell (little)
fayth (faith): wherfore (wherefore) diddest (didst)
thou dout (doubt)?
14:32 And as soone (soon) as they were come
in to (into) the shippe (ship), the winde (wind)
ceassed (ceased).
14:33 Then they that were in the shippe (ship)
cam (came) and worshypped (worshipped) him,
sayinge (saying): of a truth thou arte (art) the
sonne (son) off (of) God.

Does this help those of you unfamiliar with blackletter script to be able to read from the original 1526 Tyndale New Testament?
