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!

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!

Where Is Your Treasure? (Luke 12)

Luke 12:13-34 (Tyndale New Testament, 1534)

From verses 14 and onward, Jesus is the speaker.

Modern Spelling and [[Original Spelling]]

13 One of the company said unto him: Master, bid my brother divide the inheritance with me.
13 [[One of the company sayde vnto hym: Master byd my brother devide the enheritaunce with me.]]

14 And he said unto him: Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you?
14 [[And he sayde vnto him: Man who made me a iudge or a devider over you?]]

15 Wherefore he said unto them: take heed, and beware of covetousness. For no man’s life standeth in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
15 [[Wherfore he sayde vnto them: take hede and beware of covetousnes. For no mannes lyfe stondeth in the aboundaunce of the thinges which he possesseth.]]

16 And he put forth a similitude unto them saying: The ground of a certain rich man brought forth fruits plenteously,
16 [[And he put forth a similitude vnto them sayinge: The grounde of a certayne riche man brought forth frutes plenteously]]

17 and he thought in himself saying: what shall I do? because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?
17 [[and he thought in himsilfe sayinge: what shall I do? because I have noo roume where to bestowe my frutes?]]

18 And he said: This will I do. I will destroy my barns, and build greater, and therein will I gather all my fruits, and my goods:
18 [[And he sayde: This will I do. I will destroye my barnes and bilde greater and therin will I gadder all my frutes and my goodes:]]

19 and I will say to my soul: Soul thou hast much goods laid up in store for many years take thine ease: eat, drink, and be merry.
19 [[and I will saye to my soule: Soule thou hast moch goodes layde vp in stoore for many yeares take thyne ease: eate drinke and be mery.]]

20 But God said unto him: Thou fool, this night will they fetch away thy soul again from thee. Then whose shall those things be which thou hast provided?
20 [[But God sayde vnto him: Thou fole this night will they fetche awaye thy soule agayne from the. Then whose shall thoose thinges be which thou hast provyded?]]

21 So is it with him that gathereth riches, and is not rich in God.
21 [[So is it with him that gadereth ryches and is not ryche in God.]]

22 And he spake unto his disciples: Therefore I say unto you: Take no thought for your life what ye shall eat, neither for your body, what ye shall put on.
22 [[And he spake vnto his disciples: Therfore I saye vnto you: take no thought for youre lyfe what ye shall eate nether for youre body what ye shall put on.]]

23 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.
23 [[The lyfe is moare then meate and the bodye is moare then rayment.]]

24 Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which neither have storehouse nor barn, and yet God feedeth them. How much are ye better than the fowls.
24 [[Considre the ravens for they nether sowe nor repe which nether have stoorehousse ner barne and yet God fedeth them. How moche are ye better then the foules.]]

25 Which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?
25 [[Which of you with takynge thought can adde to his stature one cubit?]]

26 If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least: why take ye thought for the remnant?
26 [[Yf ye then be not able to do that thinge which is least: why take ye thought for the remmaunt?]]

27 Consider the lilies how they grow: They labour not: they spin not: and yet I say unto you that Solomon in all this royalty, was not clothed like to one of these.
27 [[Considre the lylies how they growe: They laboure not: they spyn not: and yet I saye vnto you that Salomon in all this royalte was not clothed lyke to one of these.]]

28 If the grass which is today in the field, and tomorrow shall be cast into the furnace, God so clothe: how much more will he clothe you, o ye endued with little faith?
28 [[Yf the grasse which is todaye in the felde and tomorowe shalbe cast into the fornace God so clothe: how moche moore will he clothe you o ye endued with litell faith?]]

29 And ask not what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither climb ye up on high,
29 [[And axe not what ye shall eate or what ye shall drinke nether clyme ye vp an hye]]

30 for all such things the heathen people of the world seek for. Your father knoweth that ye have need of such things.
30 [[for all suche thinges the hethen people of the worlde seke for. Youre father knoweth that ye have nede of suche thinges.]]

31 Wherefore seek ye after the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be ministered unto you.
31 [[Wherfore seke ye after the kyngedome of God and all these thinges shalbe ministred vnto you.]]

32 Fear not little flock, for it is your father’s pleasure, to give you a kingdom.
32 [[Feare not litell floocke for it is youre fathers pleasure to geve you a kingdome.]]

33 Sell that ye have, and give alms. And make you bags, which wax not old, and treasure that faileth not in heaven, where no thief cometh, neither moth corrupteth.
33 [[Sell that ye have and geve almes. And make you bagges which wexe not olde and treasure that fayleth not in heaven where noo these commeth nether moth corrupteth.]]

34 For where your treasure is, there will your hearts be also.
34 [[For where youre treasure is there will youre hertes be also.]]

Who is My Neighbor?

Good Samaritan – Luke 10:25-37 (Tyndale NT, 1526)

Luke-10v25-37-Good-Sam-from-1836-George-Offor-DVB-3-14-2018

One of my favorite Bible passages. Jesus’ conversation with a “certain lawyer” has important lessons for us all.

ORIGINAL SPELLING

25 And marke / A Certayne Lawere stode vp / and tempted hym sayinge: Master what shall I do / to inheret eternall lyfe? 26 He sayd vnto him: What ys written in the lawe? Howe redest thou? 27 And he answered and sayde: Thou shalt love thy lorde god / wyth all thy hert / and wyth all thy soule / and with all thy strengthe / and with all thy mynde: and thy neghbour as thy sylfe. 28 And he sayde vnto hym: Thou hast answered right. This do and thou shalt live. 29 He willynge to iustifie hym silfe / sayde vnto Iesus: Who ys then my neghbour?

30 Iesus answered and sayde: A certayne man descended from Jerusalem into Jericho / And fell into the hondes off theves / whych robbed hym off his rayment and wonded hym and departed levynge hym halfe deed. 31 And yt chaunsed that there cam a certayne preste that same waye / and sawe hym / and passed by. 32 And lyke wyse a levite / when he was come neye to the place / went and loked on him and passed by. 33 Then a certayne Samaritane / as he iornyed / cam neye vnto hym and beheld hym / and had compassion on hym 34 and cam to hym / and bounde vppe hys wondes / and poured in wyne and oyle / and layed him on his beaste / and brought hym unto a commen hostry / and drest him. 35 And on the morowe when he departed / he toke out two pence / and gave them to the host and said vnto him. Take care of him / and whatsoever thou spendest above this / when I come agayne I will recompence the. 36 Which nowe off these thre / thynkest thou was neghbour vnto him that fell into the theves hondes? 37 And he answered: he that shewed mercy on hym. Then sayde Iesus vnto hym. Goo and do thou lyke wyse.

MODERN SPELLING

25 And mark / A certain lawyer stood up / and tempted him saying: Master what shall I do / to inherit eternal life? 26 He said unto him: What is written in the law? How readest thou? 27 And he answered and said: Thou shalt love thy lord God / with all thy heart / and with all thy soul / and with all thy strength / and with all thy mind: and thy neighbor as thyself. 28 And he said unto him: Thou hast answered right. This do and thou shalt live. 29 He willing to justify himself / said unto Jesus: Who is then my neighbor?

30 Jesus answered and said: A certain man descended from Jerusalem into Jericho / And fell into the hands of thieves / which robbed him of his raiment and wounded him and departed leaving him half dead. 31 And it chanced that there came a certain priest that same way / and saw him / and passed by. 32 And likewise a Levite / when he was come nigh to the place / went and looked on him and passed by. 33 Then a certain Samaritan / as he journeyed / came nigh unto him and beheld him / and had compassion on him 34 and came to him / and bound up his wounds / and poured in wine and oil/ and laid him on his beast / and brought him unto a common hostry / and drest him. 35 And on the morrow when he departed / he took out two pence / and gave them to the host and said unto him. Take care of him / and whatsoever thou spendest above this / when I come again I will recompense thee. 36 Which now of these three / thinkest thou was neighbor unto him that fell into the thieves hands? 37 And he answered: he that showed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him. Go and do thou likewise.

I hope I am not the only one who enjoys reading these passages in both the original and modern spelling. I am constantly amazed that an English Bible from nearly 500 years ago is still very readable. Sometime soon I hope to show you a side by side comparison of the Wycliffe Bible of the 1380’s (written in Middle English) with the Tyndale Bible (written in Early Modern English). Reading in the original spelling is also a reminder to me of the translator, William Tyndale, who died a cruel death to bring us the Word of God in English.
