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?

Thanks for reading!

RESIST the devil … (James 4:7)

James4v7-9-Tyn1534

RESIST the devil…

It is such a simple statement yet a very powerful one and God has included much more in these few verses to guide us.

However, having done these things, we can be confident that if we: RESIST the devil…he will FLY from us.

James 4:7-10 (William Tyndale’s New Testament, 1534)

MODERN SPELLING

James 4:7 Submit yourselves to God and resist the devil and he will fly from you.

James 4:8 Draw nigh to God and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands ye sinners and purge your hearts ye wavering minded.

James 4:9 Suffer afflictions: sorrow ye and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to heaviness.

James 4:10 Cast down yourselves before the Lord and he shall lift you up.

Same verses from the King James Bible:

James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God: resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

James 4:8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you: cleanse your hands ye sinners, and purify your hearts ye double minded.

James 4:9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.

James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

Jesus Has the Words of Eternal Life (John 6:68)

John6-68-1534

John 6:66-68 (Tyndale’s New Testament, 1534)

[66] From that time many of his disciples went back and walked no more with him.

[67] Then said Jesus to the twelve: will ye also go away?

[68] Then Simon Peter answered: Master to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life…

The King James Bible, published nearly 80 years after Tyndale’s 1534 translation, is almost identical.

This is one of my favorite passages in the New Testament. It contains so many important things in a few short verses.

What if Jesus ask me directly: “Will you also go away?”

I hope my answer would be as decisive as Simon Peter’s: “Master, to whom shall I go? You have the words of eternal life.”

Speaking of “the words of eternal life” which Jesus has, this is why it is so important that we try to read from the Bible every day. This is where we will read these “words of eternal life.”

I had mentioned a few days ago about a Bible reading plan I am using. Below you will find more information about it.

Professor Grant Horner’s Bible Reading Plan

I enjoy this Bible reading plan because I like to read in both the Old Testament and the New Testament portions of the Bible every day. This plan has you reading six (6) chapters from the Old Testament and four (4) chapters from the New Testament but the reading is from ten (10) different books. Plus, let’s face it, some books of the Bible are harder than others to understand. If I only have to read one (1) chapter at a time, it helps me not get discouraged and continue with my daily reading.

Below you can see what Days 1 through 5 would look like with this reading plan.

Day 1 – Matt 1; Gen 1; Rom 1; 1 Th 1; Job 1; Ps 1; Prv 1; Josh 1; Isa 1; Acts 1

Day 2 – Matt 2; Gen 2; Rom 2; 1 Th 2; Job 2; Ps 2; Prv 2; Josh 2; Isa 2; Acts 2

Day 3 – Matt 3; Gen 3; Rom 3; 1 Th 3; Job 3; Ps 3; Prv 3; Josh 3; Isa 3; Acts 3

Day 4 – Matt 4; Gen 4; Rom 4; 1 Th 4; Job 4; Ps 4; Prv 4; Josh 4; Isa 4; Acts 4

Day 5 – Matt 5; Gen 5; Rom 5; 1 Th 5; Job 5; Ps 5; Prv 5; Josh 5; Isa 5; Acts 5

I copied Days 1 though Day 5 from the Bible Study Tools website below:

www.biblestudytools.com/bible-reading-plan/prof-horners-reading-system.html

Here is a PDF document with Professor Horner’s own detailed instructions and bookmarks you can use to follow his plan. Click the link to download it from this website.

I personally don’t like using the bookmarks. I prefer instead to print out something like the Day 1 through 5 schedule shown above on to a sheet of paper that I can check off as I finish each chapter. It gives me a sense of accomplishment and I can see what I have already read and what is coming up.

Also, don’t get upset with yourself if you don’t read ten (10) chapters each day. Just read five (5) chapters or less, but keep track of where you are. If you don’t read any of them one day, just try again the next day.

We can only start with the present and in the present, God would want us to try again to read His Word.

Also, I wanted to mention that it is also helpful to use an audio Bible if you have one. There are many available for free on the internet at places like Bible Gateway and YouVersion. When I use an audio Bible, I try to follow along in my physical Bible, if I can. If I am especially tired and struggling to keep my eyes open, I will close my eyes and just listen. I love audio Bibles. It is so helpful to hear God’s Word, too.

The longest list (The Prophets) has 250 chapters, so in essence, it would take 250 days to get to every chapter in the Bible, but by that time, you would have read the Gospels three (3) times, the Book of Acts nearly nine (9) times and Proverbs eight (8) times since you read from these books daily. The Old Testament Historic Books list (Joshua through Esther) is 249 chapters.

Thanks for reading!

God Shall Wipe Away All Tears From Their Eyes (Rev 21:4)

UPDATED: Originally posted on May 12, 2018 under a different title. Also, a video has been added which contains the audio for this particular passage of scripture (Revelation 21:1-5). The audio was been generated using text-to-speech software. Hope you enjoy!

Please keep in mind, no English Bible had verse numbers until the 1557 Geneva New Testament.

Also, spelling was phonetic and not fixed. Therefore, you may see the same word spelled more than one way — even on the same page.

The spelling of words has changed greatly since 1526, but if you sound out words, you can often figure out the modern day equivalent.

Printers used many abbreviations to get the most words on the printed page.

Lastly, the word “God” is often not capitalized.

Here are these verses in the original spelling of 1526. Below that will be an enlarged image of this portion of scripture from Tyndale’s 1526 New Testament.

Revelation: Chapter 21:1-5

And I sawe a newe heven/ and a newe erth for the fyrst heven/ and the fyrst erth/ were vanysshed awaye and there was no more see.

And I Jhon sawe that holy cite newe Jerusalem come doune from God oute of heven prepared as a bryde garnysshed for hyr husband.

And I herde a grett voyce from the trone/ sayinge: beholde/ the tabernacle off God is with men/ and he wyll dwell with them. And they shalbe his people/ and God him sylffe shalbe with them and be their god.

And God shall wyppe awaye all teares from their eyes. And there shalbe nomore deeth/ nether sorowe/ nether cryinge/ nether shall there be eny more payne/ for the olde thynges are gone.

And he that sate apon the seate/ sayde: Behold I make all thyngs newe. And he sayde vnto me: wryte/ for these wordes are faythfull and true

Rev-21-screenshot-facsimile-March-31-2018

This 1526 New Testament was printed in Worms, Germany. The 1408 Constitutions of Oxford made it illegal to translate the Bible into the mother tongue. Therefore, Tyndale left England around 1524 to do his work in Germany and other places in Europe, such as Antwerp.

Thanks for reading!
