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.”

“The Fall” – Tyndale’s Genesis of 1530

Gen3-Tyn1530

The few verses below (Genesis 3:1-11) contain “The Fall” of Adam and Eve after they were tempted by the serpent to eat the forbidden fruit. As you read, you can see how these verses were translated and published in William Tyndale’s Pentateuch of 1530.

Just a reminder, this is before English Bibles contained verse divisions which first appeared in 1557.

Punctuation and spelling (which is phonetic) are somewhat different, nearly 500 years later, but even in the Original Spelling (shown just after the Modern Spelling of these verses), you can still see how similar Tyndale’s version is to modern day translations of these same verses.

If there is a word you do not recognize in the ORIGINAL SPELLING version, just sound it out and you will often figure out what word it is.

MODERN SPELLING

Chapter 3

BUT the serpent was subtler than all the beasts of the field which the LORD God had made, and said unto the woman. Ah sir, that God hath said, ye shall not eat of all manner trees in the garden. And the woman said unto the serpent, of the fruit of the trees in the garden we may eat, but of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden (said God) see that ye eat not, and see that ye touch it not: lest ye die.

Then said the serpent unto the woman: Tush ye shall not die: But God doth know, that when so ever ye should eat of it, your eyes should be opened and ye should be as God and know both good and evil. And the woman saw that it was a good tree to eat of and lusty unto the eyes and a pleasant tree for to make wise. And took of the fruit of it and ate, and gave unto her husband also with her, and he ate. And the eyes of both of them were opened, that they understood how that they were naked. Than they sewed fig leaves together and made them aprons.

And they heard the voice of the LORD God as he walked in the garden in the cool of the day. And Adam hid himself and his wife also from the face of the LORD God, among the trees of the garden. And the LORD God called Adam and said unto him where art thou? And he answered. Thy voice I heard in the garden, but I was afraid because I was naked, and therefore hid myself. And he said: who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, of which I bade thee that thou shouldest not eat?

ORIGINAL SPELLING

The .iij. Chapter

BUT the serpent was sotyller than all the beastes of the felde which the LORde God had made/ and sayd vnto the woman. Ah syr/ that God hath sayd/ ye shall not eate of all maner trees in the garden. And the woman sayd vnto the serpent/ of the frute of the trees in the garden we may eate/ but of the frute of the tree that is in the myddes of the garden (sayd God) se that ye eate not/ and se that ye touch it not: lest ye dye.

Then sayd the serpent vnto the woman: tush ye shall not dye: But God doth knowe/ that whensoever ye shulde eate of it/ youre eyes shuld be opened and ye shulde be as God and knowe both good and evell. And the woman sawe that it was a good tree to eate of and lustie vnto the eyes and a pleasant tre for to make wyse. And toke of the frute of it and ate/ and gaue vnto hir husband also with her/ and he ate. And the eyes of both of them were opened/ that they vnderstode how that they were naked. Than they sowed fygge leves togedder and made them apurns.

And they herd the voyce of the LORde God as he walked in the gardẽ in the coole of the daye. And Adam hyd hymselfe and his wyfe also from the face of the LORde God/ amonge the trees of the garden. And the LORde God called Adam and sayd vnto him where art thou? And he answered. Thy voyce I harde in the garden/ but I was afrayd because I was naked/ and therfore hyd myselfe. And he sayd: who told the that thou wast naked? hast thou eaten of the tree/ of which I bade the that thou shuldest not eate?

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.

Tyndale’s 1525 – Gospel of Matthew

1525-Cologne-Fragment-Matt5-6-pic-Sept-3-2018

The oldest known portion of the published Bible translation work of William Tyndale is what is commonly known as the 1525 Matthew Fragment or the 1525 Cologne Fragment (because it was printed in Cologne, Germany).

It contains Tyndale’s brief introduction and the Gospel of Matthew up to chapter 22 verse 12.

Today I am sharing a portion of the Sermon on the Mount from the 1525 Matthew Fragment. It contains Matthew 5:43 through Matthew 6:4.

You can see the original portion of this scripture in the image above. Below is the transcription of the verses in their original spelling. I have added the chapter and verse notations for ease of comparison, but keep in mind that no English Bible had verse notations until the 1557 Geneva New Testament.

ORIGINAL SPELLING

Gospel of Matthew 5:43-48

5:43 Ye have herde howe it is saide: thou shalt love thyne negh-
bour/ and hate thyne enemy. 5:44 But y saye unto you/ love youre
enemies. Blesse them that cursse you. Doo good to them that
hate you/ Praye for them which doo you wronge/ and persecu-
te you/ 5:45 that ye maye be the chyldren of youre hevenly father:
for he maketh his sunne to aryse/ on the evle/ and on the good/
and sendeth his reyne on the iuste and on the oniuste. 5:46 for if ye
shall love them/ which love you: what rewarde shall ye ha-
ve? Doo not the *publicans even so? 5:47 And if ye be frendly to you-
re brethren only: what singuler thynge doo ye? Doo not the pu-
blicans lyke wyse? 5:48 Ye shall therfore be perfecte / even as youre
hevenly father is perfect.

MARGINAL NOTE:
*Publicans gaddred rentes/ toll/ custume/ & tribute for the romans/
& were commenly hethen(?) men ther vn to appointed of the romans.

Gospel of Matthew 6:1-4

The Syxt Chapter

6:1 Take hede to youre almes. th-at ye geve it not in the syght of men/ to the intent that ye wolde be sene of them. Or ellse ye gett no rewarde of youre father in heven. 6:2 Whensoever therfore thou
gevest thyne almes/ thou shalt not make a trompet to be blo-wen before the/ as the ypocryttes do in the synagoges/ and in the stretes/ for to be praysed of men. Veryly I say unto you/ they have there rewarde. 6:3 But when thou doest thyne almes/ lett not thy lyfte hond knowe/ what thy right hond doth/ 6:4 that thyne al-mes maye be secrete/ and thy father which seith in secrete/ shall
rewarde the openly.

Now I will give the MODERN SPELLING of these verses.

MODERN SPELLING

Gospel of Matthew 5:43-48

5:43 Ye have heard how it is said: thou shalt love thine neighbor, and hate thine enemy. 5:44 But I say unto you, love your
enemies. Bless them that curse you. Do good to them that hate you. Pray for them which do you wrong, and persecute you, 5:45 that ye may be the children of your heavenly father:
for he maketh his sun to arise, on the evil, and on the good, and sendeth his rain on the just and on the unjust. 5:46 For if ye shall love them, which love you: what reward shall ye have? Do not the *publicans even so? 5:47 And if ye be friendly to your brethren only: what singular thing do ye? Do not the publicans likewise? 5:48 Ye shall therefore be perfect, even as your heavenly father is perfect.

MARGINAL NOTE:
*Publicans gathered rents/ toll/ custom/ & tribute for the Romans/ & were commonly heathen(?) men there unto appointed of the Romans.

Gospel of Matthew 6:1-4

The Sixth Chapter

6:1 Take heed to your alms. that ye give it not in the sight of men, to the intent
that ye would be seen of them. Or else ye get no
reward of your father in heaven. 6:2 Whensoever therefore thou givest thine alms, thou shalt not make a trumpet to be blown before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagoges, and in
the streets, for to be praised of men. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward. 6:3 But when thou doest thine alms, let not
thy left hand know, what thy right hand doeth, 6:4 that thine alms may be secret, and thy father which seeth in secret, shall
reward the openly.
