The first English New Testament from the original tongues( W. T. )

{-{-{-{-{-{-{-{  EDITOR's NOTES  .}-}-}-}-}-}-}-}












This is a personal devotion to freely spread the truth in love for all believers in Christ. This work is not affiliated, nor belong to any worldly company, neither institiution nor registered organization. It was compiled by just a common person, (like a ploughboy that found a treasure while plowing;-) whose only claim is this:

"Christ Iesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. Notwithstanding unto me was mercy given, that Jesus Christ should first shew on me all long patience, unto the ensample of them which shall in time to come believe on|which should believe in| him unto eternal life. So then unto God, King everlasting, immortal, invisible, and wise only, be honour and praise for ever and ever Amen. " 1 Tim. 1:15-17

As a ploughman needs the proper equipment for the plowing, and desiring out of love for the art of his work, and that the seed may grow in fertile ground; so do I desire, dearly beloved brethren wherever you may be, that we as the body of Christ throrowout the world be alway prepared. Take notice at how the spirit of God speaks throughout the ages, and look and see how it's speaking to you today, diligently watch it and rightly do what your called to do. And that we do equip our neighbour to prosper, and to likewise be properly equipped fully thorowout.

"Would to God, ye could suffer me a little in my foolishness: yee, and I pray you forbear me. For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy. For I coupled you to one man, to make you a chaste virgin to Christ:" 2 Corinthians 11:1-2

The Scripture says to take utmost heed to every deed.
Study diligently to offer yourselself laudable to stand bebore God, a real devout workman in verity that needs not to be ashamed, surely dividing the word of truth rightly and justly.

AND May the Gospell of the Kingdom of God be preached wholly to all nations.
For it is a true believer's responsibility in Christ to do so; discerning who to share it with, that is, in priority to those that will be receptible to it, such as the poor, the meek Jew, and those without means to have received the good news, or such glad tidings of God and his son Iesu Christ.
And as saith the Lord:
"Give not that which is holy to dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they tread them under their feet, and the other turn again and all to rent you." Matthew 7:6

"Lo I send you forth, as sheep among wolves. Be ye therefore wise as serpents, and innocent as doves." Matthew 10:16

And again as it is written:
"For I am not ashamed of the gospell of Christ, because it is the power of God unto salvation to all
that believe, namely to the jewe, and also to the gentile." Romans 1:16

And yet again:
"Woe is it unto me if I preach not the gospell." 1Cor.9:16

And the Gospell of Christ is so very precious, as not just to be shared in part, nor by any carnal wits, neither with aspirations to spread a message without commitment. For it is crucial to share the Gospel responsibly; and must be done fully committed to all persons, yea, as if to make a proposal of marriage; Because fast half-winded attempts to share a message are unfaithful itchings for deaf ears like seed sown on unfertile ground (Mar.4:4) and are devices liken to enticing words of a wolf's tactics prior to attempting to blow the victims' houses down.

As thus saith the Lord:
"Beware of false prophets, which come to you, in sheeps clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns? Or figs of briars? Even so every good tree, bringeth forth good fruit. But a corrupt tree, bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth bad fruite: nor yet a bad tree can bring forth good fruit. Every tree, that bringeth not forth good fruit, shall be hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not all they that say unto me, master, master, shall enter in to the kingdom of heaven: But he that fulfilleth my fathers will which is in heaven. "
Matthew 7:15-21
{also see: Matthew chap. 24, Mark chap. 13, 2Peter, 1John, 2John}

"Woe be to you when all men praise you: for so did their fathers to the false prophets." Luke 6:26

"For Christ sent me not to baptise, but to preach the gospell, not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should have been made of none effect. For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness: but unto us which are saved, it is the power of God. For it is written: I will destroy the wisdom of the wise and will cast away the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise man? where is the scribe? where is the searcher of this world? Hath not God made the wisdom of this world foolishness? For when the world thorow wisdom knew not God, in the wisdom of God: it pleased God throwe foolishness of preaching to save them that believe." 1 Corinthians 1:17-21

Insomuch as the great ensample of our Lord Christ Iesu, must we also work the works of him that sent us, while it is day. The night cometh, when no man can work.

Nonetheless, may the heart of all believers be at peace and take the easy yoke and light burden of our meek Lord in thankfulness; where alway rest will be found.
And yet peacefully still, that this will be a blessing to all believers; and to bear in mind the signs of the times and the prophetic word of Revelation.

"To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them." Isaiah 8:20

"Here is the patience of saints. Here are they that keep the commandments and the faith of Iesu." Rv 14:12

"Go your ways. Behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves." Luke 10:3

For all devout true believers march to the beat of a different drumer; yea, who truly so loves them that he gave his life for them.
And like S. Paul so derely pointed out in some of his last written Acts:
"And now behold, I am sure that henceforth ye all (thorow whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God) shall see my face no more. Wherefore I take you to record this same day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. For I have kept nothing back: but have shewed you all the counsel of God. Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, whereof the holy ghost hath made you overseers, to rule the congregation of God, which he hath purchased with his blood. For I am sure of this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, which will not spare the flock. And of your ownselves shall men arise speaking perverse things, to draw disciples after them. Therefore awake and remember, that by the space of iij. years I ceased not to warn every one of you, both night and day with tears. And now dear brethren I commend you to God and to the word of his grace, which is able to build further, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified. I have desired no mans silver, gold, or vesture. Ye know well that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me. I have shewed you all things, how that so laboring ye ought to receive the weak, and to remember the words of the lord Iesu, how that he said: It is more blessed to give, than to receive."
Acts 20:25-35

And that all believers in Christ may be able to well say :
"I have fought a good fight, and have fulfilled my course, and have kept the faith."
2 Timothy 4:7

(- M. V. -)



Messiah Iesu the son of God commanded in John Chap. ij. :

.."make not my father's house, an house of merchandise."

If you are shopping for a new Bible, the many version choices are mind-boggling. At first I said like S. Paul wrote:

"What thing is this? Notwithstanding by all manner ways, whether it be by occasion or of truth, yet Christ is preached: and therefore I joy. Yee and will joy." (Philippians j.)

Even so, thorow much research and thanks to the guidance of the spirit of God who leads to truth, that is, His son Christ Iesu our health; firstly asking God thorow prayer and fasting, for wisdom in Iesus name; it must be said in desire of the pure Word, that one will come to the realization that over the years there have been many divers revisions of the Scriptures, some of which under the guise of wordily scholarship and "the modernizing the languages" have watered down the message and introduced errors proceeding from deviant manuscripts, from doctrines of men, and from over simplification of the English or given language. Hence may the spirit of God deliver us from any strong delusion, and keep us in the alleviating reality of the truth, specially at this Laodicean hour.

'So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing cometh by the word of God.'(Romans x.)

Instead of revising "forward" towards modernism and employing modern scholarship, textual criticism, and the like; it has been my intention to go "back" and restore the pure message from the proven root. Yea, a root that was tried in the fire like gold and grew to immense proportions in likeness of a great tree yielding it's fruit in due season. For it's history of good fruit speaks for itself. Therefore, I believe that only when we allow the witness of the spirit of truth in our hearts to have the last word regarding translation, can we then come to the truth or reality of the matter.

'Study to shew thyself laudable unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, dividing the word of truth justly.' Second Timothy ij.

Diligence and great reverence to God must be taken when studying the Scriptures; like those noblest among them of Thessalonia in Acts xvij. ' which received the word with all diligence of mind, and searched the scriptures daily whether those things were even so.' And it must 'BEREAD' in mind that even if we were to all learn the original tongue to perfection and could obtain a flawless manuscript of the original text, there would still be a humanly insurmountable language barrier between us and the truth that can only be bridged by the spirit of God.

'For with thee is the fountain of life: and in thy light shall we see light.' (Psalm xxxvj.)



It is thanks to God for devout man of the word like William Tyndale, that the Scriptures were translated from the original tongue and printed for the first time in English.

A.) About the translation significance

Fluent in at least 7 languages, by the grace of God, William Tyndale translated much of the Bible into English from the Hebrew and Greek original tongue sources. In doing so he gave the English language many of its best known phrases.

'    In the beginning God created heaven and earth. The earth was void and empty, and darkness was upon the deep, and the spirit of God moved upon the water.
     Then God said: Let there be light, and there was light. And God saw the light that it was good: and divided the light from the darkness, and called the light day, and the darkness night: and so of the evening and morning was made the first day.' (Genesis j.)

Through the years many English speaking believers in the Word adopted and loved the 'Authorised' version of the New Testament, and surely it includes Phrases of lapidary beauty that have been admired :

'heat of the day' (Matthew xx.)

'They made light of it, and went their ways: one to his firm place, another about his merchandise,' (Matthew xxij.)

'And he put forth a similitude unto them saying: The lands of a certain man brought forth fruits plenteously,  and he thought in himself saying: what shall I do? because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? 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: 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. 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?  So is it with him that gathered riches, and is not rich in God.' (Luke xij.)

' filthy lucre' (First Timothy iij.)

' in the morning: ye say, today shall be foul weather, and that because the sky is tremulous and red. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the fashion of the sky: and can ye not discern the signs of the times?' (Matthew xvj.)

'scales fell from his eyes' (Acts ix.)

'The powers that be' (Romans xiij.)

'For where ij or iij are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.' (Matthew xviij.)

'the salt of the earth' (Matthew v.)

'Ask and it shall be given you: Seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you.' (Luk xj.)

' clothed and in his right mind' (Luke viij.)

'Iesus beheld them, and said unto them: with men this is unpossible, but with God all things are possible.' (Matthew ixx.)

'For in him we live, move, and have our being' (Acts xvij.)

'Full of good works' (Acts ix.)

'A law unto themselves' (Romans ij.)

'Fight the good fight of faith; lay hold on eternal life.' (First Timothy vj.)

'Be not weary in well doing' (Second Thessalonians iij.)

'Let brotherly love continue' (Hebrews xiij.)

'Looking unto Iesus, the author and finisher of our faith' (Hebrews xij.)

'The patience of Job' (James v.)

'Behold I stand at the door, and knock' (Revelation iij.)

'And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes' (Revelation vij. xxj.)

All these phrases, and many, (specially when it is direct, simply plain and strong,) and many other, were taken by the King James version translators directly from Tyndale.

B.) About the brave translator (William Tyndale 1494-1536 A.D.)

Pursuing a vision

Master Tyndale happened to be in the company of a learned man and, in disputing with him ... the man said, "We are better to be without God's laws than the pope's." Master Tyndale, hearing this, replied, "I defy the pope and all his laws;" and added, "If God spare my life, ere many years I will cause a boy that driveth the plough to know more of the Scripture than thou dost." (Foxe, Book of Martyrs)

At that time, printing had just been invented, although translating the Bible was considered heretical. These were dangerous times for Scripture translations. Even still, Tyndale said, "It is impossible to establish the lay people in any truth, except the Scriptures be laid before their eyes, in their mother tongue."  He fled to Germany in 1524, later to Belgium. He continued his work, translating the New Testament from the original tongue; and first began to print his first edition with marginal notes in a quarto edition at Cologne, but he was compelled to halt the printing and flee the city to avoid arrest. {Only a single copy of it (as far as Matthew chapter 22:12) survives, now in the British Museum.} Tyndale was forced to leave England and finish his work in Worms, Germany, and in the year of our Lord 1526, he printed the version (anonymously) in smaller octavo format. The shrewd religious authorities knowing that they could not stop this version from reaching England's shores, planned to buy up all the copies and burn them. It backfired, as they bought these copies from merchants, the money was given to Tyndale to print up even more copies. And because his enemies did so much carp at it, pretending it to be full of heresies, he wrote to John Frith, as followeth, "I call God to record against the day we shall appear before our Lord Iesus, 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."

In 1535, Tyndale had planned to complete the translation of the Old Testament, but was betrayed by a fellow Englishman feigning to be his friend who was really being paid to betray him. This man enticed Tyndale to venture into the streets of Antwerp, where he was ambushed and taken to the prison in the castle at Vilvorde, Brussels. Trials for heresy in the Netherlands were in the hands of special commissioners of the self proclaimed "holy roman empire". It took 16 months for the law to take its course. A letter from him during this time, in Latin, has survived and is translated here:

'I believe, most excellent Sir, that you are not unacquainted with the decision reached concerning me. On which account, I beseech your lordship, even by the Lord Iesus, that if I am to pass the winter here, to urge upon the lord commissary, if he will deign, to send me from my goods in his keeping a warmer cap, for I suffer greatly from cold in the head, and am afflicted with a continual catarrh, which is much increased in this cell. A warmer coat also, for that which I have is very thin: also cloth for repairing my leggings; my overcoat is worn out: the shirts also are worn out. He has a woolen shirt of mine, if he will please send it. I have also with him leggings of heavier cloth for overwear. He likewise has warmer nightcaps: I also ask to be allowed to use a lamp in the evening: it is indeed weariesome sitting alone in the dark.
But most of all I beg and beseech your clemency to be urgent with the commissary, that he will kindly permit me to have my Hebrew Bible, Hebrew Grammar, and Hebrew Dictionary, and that I might employ my time with that study. Thus likewise may you obtain what you most desire, saving that it further the salvation of your soul. But if, before the end of winter, a different decision be reached concerning me, I shall be patient, and submit to the will of God to the glory of the grace of Iesus Christ my Lord, whose spirit may ever direct your heart. Amen.'

W. Tyndale

Tyndale was condemned as a heretic, degraded from the priesthood, and delivered to the secular authorities for punishment under the laws of the Inquisition.

T h e  "C r i m e s"  o f  W i l l i a m  T y n d a l e :

First :.... He maintains that faith alone justifies.

Second :... He maintains that to believe in the forgiveness of sins and to embrace the mercy offered in the Gospel, is enough for salvation.

Third :.... He avers that human traditions cannot bind the conscience, except where their neglect might occasion scandal.

Fourth :... He denies the freedom of the will.

Fifth :.... He denies that there is any purgatory.

Sixth :.... He affirms that neither the virgin nor the saints pray for us in their own person.

Seventh :. He asserts that neither the virgin nor the saints should be invoked by us.

At last, after much reasoning, when no reason would serve, although he deserved no death, he was condemned by virtue of the emperor's decree, made in the assembly at Augsburg. Brought forth to the place of execution, he was tied to the stake, strangled by the hangman, and afterwards consumed with fire, at the town of Vilvorde, (morning of 6 October) A.D. 1536; crying at the stake with a fervent zeal, and a loud voice, "Lord! open the king of England's eyes." -- Foxe's Book of Martyrs

Acknowledging English Bible history; it's amazing how Tyndale's prayer was indeed answered in the faith of God.

A couple of years after Tyndale's death, Miles Coverdale's Bible was to be used in every parish in the land. This was largely based on Tyndale's Bible. In 1539 Tyndale's own edition of the Bible became officially approved for printing. The Great Bible was the first Bible ever authorized for public use.

William Tyndale's translation is the foundation of all reformed English versions published for three centuries afterwards: Coverdale's Bible New Testament is a revision of Tyndale 1534; Matthew's Bible is a revision of Tyndale 1535; Taverner's Bible and the Great Bible are revisions of Matthew's Bible; The Bishops' Bible is a revision of the Great Bible, and also the N.T. of the "Geneva Bible" is mainly a revision of Tyndale 1535.

(Although also unacknowledged, much of his work appears in the so called 'Authorized' (or 'King James') version of the Bible whose translator's were to abide by rule 1 which demanded merely a revision of the Bishops' Bible; The version is not said to be "authorized"; yet "appointed to be read in Churches" (not on the title page of the New Testament) could be interpreted to mean that as successor to the Bishops' Bible, which was thus appointed, it (the N.t.) might be regarded as "authorized"; moreover the Bishops' Bible was the legitimate successor of the expressly "authorized" Great Bible.)



A.) Divers spellings kept to best reason the integrity of the original


1.) Tyndale had a writting freestyle that used divers spelling of the same name like: Isay, Esay (that we call Isaiah,) Hierusalem & Ierusalem (Jerusalem;), Iury, Iewry, Iewery: which is interpreted as Judaea etc.. although the reader is able to easily recognize; the same like when we call somebody a shorten or derived form of their name. In this online edition some names starting with the letter "I" have been brought into modern spelling with a "J" like for example: Jewry, Jury.. {note: Jury is an interesting rendering taking into account the gospell and Romans chap. ix.}

2.) Most words were updated to current 'go spelling'; For ensample the word hys=his or wyfe=wife is updated as such.

3.) The words "off" & "of" were sometimes interchanged in the original, the same with "then" & "than".


i.) Dictionary definition for OFF

\Off\, adv. In a general sense, denoting from or away from;
\Off\, interj. Away; begone; -- a command to depart.
\Off\, prep. Extending or branching out from: an artery off the heart. Not on; away from; as, to be off one's legs or off the bed; two miles off the shore. --Addison.
\Off\, a. 1. On the farther side; most distant; on the side of an animal or a team farthest from the driver when he is on foot; in the United States, the right side; as, the off horse or ox in a team, in distinction from the nigh or near horse or ox; the off leg.

ij.) Dictionary definition for OF

\Of\, prep. In a general sense, from, or out from; proceeding from; belonging to; relating to; concerning;

iij.) \THEN\, conj. 1. Than. [Obs.] --Spenser.
2. In that case; in consequence; as a consequence; therefore; for this reason.
Syn: Therefore.
Usage: Then, Therefore. Both these words are used in reasoning; but therefore takes the lead, while then is rather subordinate or incidental. Therefore states reasons and draws inferences in form; then, to a great extent, takes the point as proved, and passes on to the general conclusion. ``Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God.'' --Rom. v. 1. ``So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.'' --Rom. x. 17.
\Then\ ([th][e^]n), adv. [Originally the same word as than. See Than.] 1. At that time (referring to a time specified, either past or future).

iiij.) \THAN\ ([th][a^]n), conj. [OE. than, thon, then, thanne, thonne, thenne, than, then, AS. [eth]anne, [eth]onne, [eth][ae]nne; akin to D. dan, OHG. danne, G. dann then, denn than, for, Goth. [thorn]an then, and to E. the, there, that. See That, and cf. Then.] A particle expressing comparison, used after certain adjectives and adverbs which express comparison or diversity, as more, better, other, otherwise, and the like. It is usually followed by the object compared in the nominative case. Sometimes, however, the object compared is placed in the objective case, and than is then considered by some grammarians as a preposition. Sometimes the object is expressed in a sentence, usually introduced by that; as, I would rather suffer than that you should want.
Behold, a greater than Solomon is here. --Matt. xii. 42.
It's wiser being good than bad; It's safer being meek than fierce; It's fitter being sane than mad. --R. Browning.
\Than\, adv. Then. See Then. [Obs.] --Gower.
Source: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary

4.) The word nor was used for ner; and neither for nether


i.) The archaic definition for * ner according to Webster's dictionary is:

ner \Ner"re\, adv. & a. [See Near.] Nearer. [Obs.] [Written also neer, ner.] --Chaucer.
Never the neer, never the nearer; no nearer. [Obs.]
\Ner\, adv. & a. nearer. [Obs.] See Nerre.

On the text mostly it was rendered nor

ii.) the word nether in the Tyndale text seems to mean "neither",

And although likely not related there's an interesting archaic definition for the word nether:

\Neth"er\, a. [OE. nethere, neithere, AS. ni?era, fr. the adv. ni?er downward; akin to neo?an below, beneath, D. neder down, G. nieder, Sw. nedre below, nether, a. & adv., and also to Skr. ni down. [root]201. Cf. Beneath.] Situated down or below; lying beneath, or in the lower part; having a lower position; belonging to the region below; lower; under; -- opposed to upper.

5.) The original translation used both lower and upper case sporadically, as for example : Iewe, iew, etc. Most descriptors were kept in the same letter original case; Nonetheless the significance of the whole original text still remains intact in this restored edition.

B.) Further word notes on interesting T.N.T renderings you may come across :

1.) COMO : original spelling like 1526 edition "como" and according to the Greek word Erhomenon (participle present) it is best translated: going to come, or returning as
(that is, Iesu Christ is coming in the glorious body of resurrection.)
Found in the second letter of John :

"For many deceivers are entered into the world, which confess not that Iesus Christ is como in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

2.) ESTER : exact spelling, (other: passover, the feast of unleavened or sweet bread)
ester lamb: this is the Hebrew feast of sweet bread, and this lamb was offered at the first passover in egypt. (also pascha : or paschal lamb; that Christ the Lord fulfilled by shedding his precious blood for us at calvary)

3.) IESUS, IESU : "J" was not used in the original W.T. English for words (although is used as a 1 roman  numeral .j.) William Tyndale like most early translators were very accurate in rendering the name of the Lord from the original tongue.   The name of our Lord for ensample was kept exact spelling {Iesu, in this edition Jesu} shewing that the English root word came from the latin word Iesu (pronounced Yesu) that is derived from the Greek word Iesous and most important of all that the Greek got it from the Hebrew word Y'shu of Yahshuah meaning G_D "Yah" {Yah or Jah as in Psalm 68} will save and be our health "shuah" (like the name Ihoshua or Joshua in the O.T.) that has a similar meaning of the Name; An Angel will be able to verify the significance in the first chapter of Matthew.

4.) GOSPELL : (v.) exact original spelling; (--as in "go" & "spell";-) As to spell forth a good saying, glad speech; to tell the joy-full letters thereof. Gospel, (n.) [other: Godspell; God + spell : his letters, promises, & true story.  The glad tidings; that is, the good news of Christ the Lord who came in the flesh and died for our sins, whom God his father rose from the dead, and will rise all the dead at the last trompe; the soon coming Kingdom of God, and eternal health.

5.) LOWSE, lowsed, lowsest, loosed, loose (v.) : to turn loose, let go lowse, lose (adj.) loose {lowse from the hebrew low is to humble,
note1: from the Greek : loose, untie; release, set free; break away, set aside; destroy, pull down; break up; or allow.
note2: lowse from the hebrew "Low" is to humble.
note3: loose from the hebrew is to open, or subdue)

"And I will give unto thee, the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatsoever thou bindest upon earth, it shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou lowsest on earth, it shall be lowsed in heaven." Matthew chapter xvi.

a.) thorow (prep.) : through, by means or reason of, be cause of, on account of

"and to give light to all men, that they might know what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God which made all things thorow Iesus Christ" Ephesians chapter iij.

b.) thorow (prep.) from the hebrew letter "bet".
b1.) through: preceded by a verb of motion, as to step, make march, or even let go in a certain way, or direction.
Bet is a directional letter moving from the right to the left.
The direction begins with G-d in creation flowing out from there.
b2.) The structure of the Bet is a Vav and a Vav.
One Vav points in the direction of Earth and the other Vav points in the direction of Heaven.
[When the Vav from the heavens and the Vav from the earth touch in the center they form the Bet].
b3.) 'bet' proceeded from the beginning, hence out of, off, from, on account of, by means of, on the side of, since, above, than, and so be there for.
b4.) with a causal force, through, on account of; because of; Be at, through, the word of

8.) W.T.'s translation also uses an unique method of roman numerals for chapters and numbers within the text, and it has been kept the same :
1 : j., 2 : ij., 3. iij., 4. iiij., 5. v., 6. vi., 7. vij., 8. viij. 9. ix., 10. x. 11.xi.. 20. xx.,,, 44. xliiij. 50. l. 60. lx., 70. lxx., 80.lxxx., 90. xc., 100. C. 200. ij.C. 400. iiij. C. 500. D., 1000. M. 12000. xij M.



Archaic words bring back the sharpness to detail and of significance.

A.) Why is "Ye" and "Thee" needed; and How are used :

1.) Thee, Thou, Thy, Thine. Alway Singular (refers to only one.)

2.) Ye, You : Always Plural (refers to more than one.)

Note: Modern English has lost this important distinction. Serious doctrinal error can result from the consequences of changing the plural "Ye", "You" and the singular "Thee, Thy, Thine" to: "you and your"; as there would be no way to distinguish if the scriptural promises or directives are addressed to a given individual or to the people of God.

B.) How important is the poetic beauty and depth of archaic verb endings :

1.) -est or -st : Used to form the archaic second person singular (thee, thou.. etc) of English verbs: comest thou to me?

"And he said unto Iesus: Lord remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom." Luke Chap. 23

2.) -eth or  -th : Used to form the archaic third person singular (he, she, they, it.. etc) present indicative of verbs: leadeth.


 "He that goeth in by the door, is the shepherd of the sheep. To this man the porter openeth the door, and the sheep hear his voice, And he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out,  and when he hath sent forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: For they know his voice."  John x.

.VIIJ. THE TRUE BIBLE CODE {read thorowly}-

The LXVIIJ. {68} Psalm. (From Matthews Bible of 1537.)

To the chanter, a Psalm and song of David.

He sheweth the great goodness and wonderful power which the Lorde exercised toward his people and the holy city Ierusalem, in giving them the victory (as some expound) of the Syrians, the Edomites, and the Ammonites: figuring openly therein the kingdom of Christ, unto whom he saw by the spirit that the whole world should obey: wherefore he exhorteth all men to give praise unto the LORDE.

    Let God {Elohim} arise, so shall his enemies be scattered, and they that hate him, shall flee before him.

    Like as the smoke vanisheth, so shalt thou drive them away: and like as wax melteth at the fire, so shall the ungodly perish at the presence of God. {Elohim.}

    But the righteous shall be glad and rejoice before God, {Elohim} they shall be merry and joyful.

    Oh sing unto God, {Elohim,} sing praises to his name: magnify him that rideth above the heavens (whose name is the LORD) {YAH} and rejoice before him.

    He is a father {abba} of the fatherless, he is a defender {judge & liberator} of widows: even God {Elohim} in his holy habitation.

    He is the God {Elohim} that maketh men to be of one mind in a house, and bringeth the prisoners out of captivity in due season, but letteth the renegades continue in scarceness.

    O God, {Elohim} when thou wentest forth before the people, when thou wentest thorow the wilderness. Selah.

    The earth shook, and the heavens dropped at the presence of God {Elohim} in Sinai, at the presence of God, {Elohim,} which is the God {Elohim} of Israel.

    Thou, o God {Elohim} sendest a gracious rain upon thine inheritance, and refresheth it, when it is dry.

    That thy beasts may dwell therein, which thou {Elohim} of thy goodness hast prepared for the poor.

    The Lorde {Adonai} shall give the word, {utterance,} with great hosts of Evangelistes.

    Kings with their armies shall flee, and they of the household shall divide the spoil.

    If so be, that ye lay among the pales, the dove's feathers shall be covered with silver, and her wings the color of gold.

    When the Almighty {Shadday: Omnipotent} setteth kings upon the earth, it shall be clear even in the darkness.

    The hill of Basan is God's {Elohim's} hill, the hill of Basan is a plenteous hill.

    Why hope ye so, ye great hills? *

    It pleaseth God to dwell upon this hill, yee the LORD {YHWH} will abide in it for ever.

    The chariots of God {Elohim} are many thousand times a thousand, the Lorde {Adonai} is among them in holy Sinai.

    Thou art gone up on high, thou hast led captivity captive, and received gifts, for men: Yea even for thine enemies, that they might dwell with the Lorde God. {YAH Elohim.}

    Praised by the Lorde {Adonai} daily, even the god {El} which helpeth us, and poured his benefits upon us.

    Selah. The god {El} that is our Saviour, {Him of salvations} even GOD {YHWH} the Lorde {Adonai} by whom we escape death.

    The God {Elohim} that smiteth his enemies upon the heads and upon the harry scalps: such as go still in their wickednesses.

    The Lord {Adonai} hath said: {uttereth:} some will I bring away from Basan, some will I bring again from the deep of the sea.

    That thy foot may be dipped in the blood of thine enemies, and that thy dogs may lick it up.

    It is well seen (o God) {Elohim} how thou goest, how thou my god {El} and my King goest in the Sanctuary.

    The singers go before, and then the minstrels among the maidens with the tymbrels.     O give thanks unto God {Elohim} the LORDE {YHWH} in the congregation, for the welles of Israel.

    There is little Benjamin, the Princes of Judah, the Princes of Zabulon, and the Princes of Nephtali bear rule among them.

    The God {Elohim} hath committed strength unto thee, stablish the thing (o God) {Elohim} that thou hast wrought in us.

    For thy temples sake at *{on} Jerusalem shall Kings bring presents unto thee.

    Reprove the beasts among the redes, the heap of bulls with the calves: those that drive for money.

    Oh scatter the people that delight in battle.

    The Princes shall come out of Egypt, the Morian's land {Cush} shall stretch out her hands unto God. {Elohim}

    Sing unto God, {Elohim} (o) ye kingdoms of the earth: (o) sing praises unto the LORD. {YHWH}

    Selah. Which sitteth in the heavens over all from the beginning: Lo, he shall send out his voice, yea and that a mighty voice.

    Ascribe ye the power unto God, {Elohim} his glory is in Israel, and his might in the clouds.

    God {Elohim} is wonderful in his Sanctuary, he is the god {El} of Israel, he will give strength and power unto his people. Blessed be God. {Elohim.}

Notes from Mathews Bible:

To the Chanter : from the fourth Psalm notes:

(To the chanter. The which is here translated, to the chanter: is in Hebrew Lamnazeah. Which word after Ezra and David Kimhi (expositors in hebrew) signifieth to the chief of the singers, Whom we commonly call in english, the father of the choir or chanter. This interpretation also, do boeth the most number and the best learned of the Latinists, best allow, and therefore have I followed the same the whole Psalter thorow expressing it by this word chanter. Notwithstanding divers authors do diversely interpret it. Some say that it signifieth, to the victor or over comer, some to the victory, which may thus agree together, if thou take a psalm to be a stirring up and exhortation to put our trust in God, being sure to obtain the victory. And where some interpret, unto the end understand even the same, For therefore do we put our trust in God, that we may come to the end of the victory. Some translate the title thus. A vehement and often made exhortation in instruments of music, a psalme to David, that is, as they them selves expound it. A psalme relevant unto David. For David is in Hebrew the dative case and not the genitive. ) (Neginoth : This word signifieth the tune or note of those instruments. Where after the Psalmes before which it is prefixed were song. For the Psalmes were song at certain instruments but so that the sweet tune and instrument, prepared the mind more perfectly to receive the word of the holy deity. ) (To lift up the light. God lifteth up the light of his countenance upon us, when by manifest benefits shewed unto us, he declareth him self to favour us.)

A Psalme : In the Hebrew tongue a psalme is called Misrom that is a song, or as some will, the sound of an harp.)

Selah : {lift up voices of exalt.}

Selah. from the Third Psalm notes:

This word after Rabi Kinchi was a sign or token of lifting up the voice, and also a monition and advertisement to enforce thee the thought and mind earnestly to give heed to the meaning of the verse whereunto it is added. Some will that it signify perpetually or verily. )

Let god arise : God ariseth, when he sheweth that he hath a will to help & to save. Psalm .xij.{12}.xxxv.{35}.xliiij.{44}

Gracious rain : By this gracious rain, is signified, the word and Gospel, which is the law of the spirit and of life. Psalm .cxlviij.{148}

Great hills : That is mighty kings.


*Why hope ye so, ye great hills? in Heb. ascribes :

Why look ye with an evil eye, are ye jealous of Sion?

*on Jerusalem = in Heb. denotes the upper part, that is, in Sion that was superior to the city

Sion or Zion the Congregation of God exceeds all worldly things, not in pomp and outward show, but by the inward grace of God, which remains because of his dwelling there.

"The hill of Basan is God's {Elohim's} hill, the hill of Basan is a plenteous hill. Why hope ye so, ye great hills? It pleaseth God to dwell upon this hill, yee the LORD {YHWH} will abide in it for ever."

Basan or Bashan = "fruitful "  or "smooth and fertile land"

a district east of the Jordan known for its fertility which was given to the half-tribe of Manasseh; first mentioned as kingdom of Og, E. of Jordan, stretching from stream Jabbok (thus including northern Gilead) northward to Hermon, between Gennesaret (W) and mts of Hauran (E); later a type of fertility.

Later in Psalm 68 Bashan appears again,

"The LORDE hath said: some will I bring again from (1) Basan, some will I bring again fro the deep of the sea."

1.) As he delivered his Congregation once from Og of Bashan and other tyrants and from the danger of the Red Sea, so will he still do as often as it is necessary.

Here Basan may helping to Hebraically express the idea of setting apart for a special purpose, and by implying separation, hence out of, from, off, from above, or from beneath; or implying removal,  from a place, or in any direction, also from guilt, calamity, etc.: thus to descend from a mountain, from heaven, to ascend from a valley, or the sea, to raise up from the dunghill, or the ground.

Selah. The god {El} that is our Saviour, {Him of salvations} even GOD {YHWH} the Lorde {Adonai} by whom we escape death.(1)

(1) Even in most extreme dangers, God has infinite ways to deliver his.

BACK TO PSALM 68: first here are the noted significance of all it's biblical names listed in order :

YAH = the (poetic) Everlasting name of God; or rendered GOD or LORD (all caps)

Basan = "smooth and fertile land"

Basan = "fruitful"

YHWH = the name of the LORD who is and forevever will be

Sinai = "thorny", or "bound"
The N.T. stresses that Sinai symbolizes the bondage of the old covenant, a bondage taken away by the work of Christ who has effected the new covenant of liberty and promise through his blood. Also Sinai is the name of the mt. of law-giving. Hence it may also mean to bind or "bound".

YAH = the Everlasting


basan = also "fertility"


Israel = El persisteth, persevereth

Benjamin = "the son of the right hand"

Judah = "praised"

Zebulun = "exalted" Habkation, height, exalted abode

Naphtali = "wrestling, struggles and fights" (interpr. as my wrestling Gn 30:8; perhaps orig. crafty, cunning one);  

Egypt = "two lands" or Kemi "Black Land"; the land: kingdom with fluctuating boundaries 

Cush = "black" or "dark"
1. a Benjamite (title).
2. the southernmost peoples known to Hebrews.
{as in the deep south, although not affiliated or directly pertaining to the name, it still may imply "deep darkness".}

YHWH = IEHOUA (name of the LORD as translated by Tyndale.)

Israel = also "God prevails" : or He will gain great victory.

HENCE, looking at this with a spiritual eye, hit utters an interesting message:

GOD's smooth and fertile land of fruitfulness was bound by the Everlasting LORD from the fertility of the LORD that will persevere with the son of the right hand to be praised and exalted for wrestling with the two fluctuating lands of deep and cunning darkness; to prevail for IEHOUA in great victory.



Dear Brethren,

Here I say farewell, and beseech thee to pray for me, that I may continue to be a blessing to the one body of Christ, as I hope that yow all take the utmost heed thorow every study deed.
As howbeit I perceive that today the wisdom of Scripture has been so locked up, that even the most scholarly men don't have the key: and even so do they hinder the truth to be properly shared, locking themselves out, and locking up others with them.

And with the precious word in the spirit I leeve with thee;
As Messias the Lord saith:

"And he put forth a similitude unto them: Can the blind lead the blind? Do they not both then fall into the ditch? The disciple is not above his master. Every man shall be perfect, even as his master is."
Luke 6:39-40

"The disciple is not above his master: Nor yet the servant above his lord. It is enough for the disciple to be as his master is, and that the servant be as his lord is.
If they have called the lord of the house beelzebub: how much more shall they call them of his household so? Fear them not therefore. There is nothing so close, that shall not be opened, and nothing so hid, that shall not be known.
What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light.
And what ye hear in the ear that preach ye on the house tops.
And fear ye not them which kill the body, and be not able to kill the soul. But rather fear him, which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."
Matthew 10:24-28

And again Christ the Lord thus utters:
"..First of all beware of the leaven of the pharisees, which is hypocrisy.
For there is nothing covered, that shall not be uncovered: neither hid, that shall not be known.
Wherefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness: that same shall be heard in light.
And that which ye have spoken in the ear, even in secret places, shall be preached even on the top of the houses.
I say unto you my friends: fear ye not them that kill the body, and after that have nothing that he can more do.
I will shew you, whom ye shall fear. Fear him which after he hath killed, hath power to cast into hell.
YEA I say unto you, him fear."
Luke 12:1-5


"I know nought by myself: yet am I not thereby justified. It is the lord that judgeth me.
Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the lord come, which will lighten things that are hid in darkness: and open the counsels of the hearts. And then shall every man have praise of God."
1 Corinthians 4:4-5

"Put on ye armour of God, that ye may stand steadfast against the crafty assaults of the devil.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood: but against rule, against power, and against worldly rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in heavenly things.
For this cause take unto you the armour of God, that ye may be able to resist in the evil day, and to stand perfect in all things."
Ephesians 6:11-13

And in the eloquent words of Peter, I so compassionately hope that all brethren be prospered, held safely with love, health, and salvation who is of the Lord our God.
"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever." Amen.
1 Peter 5:6-11

What more can be said of such (eloquently translated) New Testament blessing?

Glory be to God the almighty,
and for his son Iesu Christ,
being faithfully and freely given
with such gracious might!

Hope Will Be a blessing to ye all.
Glory be to God for his son Iesu Christ the Lord.
Faithfully your net servant in Him,

PS .. Stay tunned according to the Scriptures for the soon return of the son of man, Iesu Christ, and his father: the only wise Just God; and do look forward to either heavenly bliss or judgement, for reward or lost, for eternal life or damnation.
