Matthew 22:23-33 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

23 In that day Sadducees, that say there is no rising again to life [that say there is no rising again], came to him, and asked him,

24 and said, Master, Moses said, if any man is dead [saying, Master, Moses said, if any man be dead], not having a son, that his brother wed his wife, and raise seed to his brother.

25 And there were seven brethren to us; and the first wedded a wife, and is dead. And he had no seed, and left his wife to his brother; [Forsooth seven brethren were with us; and the first, a wife wedded, is dead. And he not having seed, left his wife to his brother;]

26 also the second, and the third, till to the seventh.

27 But the last of all, [also] the woman is dead.

28 Also in the rising again to life [Therefore in the rising again], whose wife of the seven shall she be? for all had her.

29 Jesus answered, and said to them, Ye err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the virtue of God.

30 For in the rising again to life, neither they shall wed, neither shall be wedded [For in the rising again, neither they wed, neither be wedded]; but they be as the angels of God in heaven.

31 And of the rising again of dead men, have ye not read, that [it] is said of the Lord, that saith to you [that it is said of the Lord, saying to you],

32 I am God of Abraham, and God of Isaac, and God of Jacob? he is not God of dead men, but of living men.

33 And the people hearing [And the companies hearing], wondered on his teaching.

Matthew 22:23-33 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

23 The same day the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him and asked him, 24 saying, Teacher, Moses said that if a man dies having no children, the brother should marry the widow and raise up seed for his brother. 25 There were with us seven brethren. The first married and died without issue, and left his wife to his brother. 26 Likewise the second and the third, down to the seventh. 27 Last of all the woman died also. 28 Now in the resurrection, whose wife will she be of the seven? For they all had her.

29 Jesus answered and said to them, You are deceived, and do not understand the scriptures, nor yet the power of God. 30 For in the resurrection people neither marry nor are married, but are as the angels in heaven. 31 As for the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what is spoken to you by God, who says, 32 I am Abraham’s God, and Isaac’s God, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.

33 And when the people heard that, they were astonished at his teaching.

Matthew 22:23-33 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

23 [a]The same day the Sadducees came to him, (which say that there is no resurrection) and asked him,

24 Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no [b]children, his brother shall marry his wife by the right of alliance, and raise up seed unto his brother.

25 Now therefore were with us seven brethren, and the first married a wife, and deceased: and having no issue, left his wife unto his brother.

26 Likewise also the second, and the third, unto the seventh.

27 And last of all the woman died also.

28 Therefore in the resurrection, whose wife shall she be of the seven? for all had her.

29 Then Jesus answered, and said unto them, Ye are deceived, not knowing the Scriptures, nor the power of God.

30 For in the resurrection they neither marry wives, nor wives are bestowed in marriage, but are as the [c]Angels of God in heaven.

31 And concerning the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read what is spoken unto you of God, saying,

32 I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.

33 And when the multitude heard it, they were astonied at his doctrine.
