Matthew 27:3-10 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

Then Judas that betrayed him, saw that he was condemned, he repented, and brought again the thirty pieces [of silver] to the princes of priests, and to the elder men of the people,

and said, I have sinned, betraying rightful blood. And they said, What to us? busy thee. [saying, I have sinned, betraying just blood. And they said, What to us? see thou.]

And when he had cast forth the [pieces of] silver in the temple, he passed forth, and went, and hanged himself with a snare.

And the princes of priests took the [pieces of] silver, and said, It is not leaveful to put it into the treasury [It is not leaveful to send them into the treasury], for it is the price of blood.

And when they had taken counsel, they bought with it a field of a potter [they bought with them the field of a potter], into [the] burying of pilgrims.

Therefore that field is called Aceldama, that is, a field of blood, into this day.

Then that was fulfilled, that was said by the prophet Jeremy [that thing that was said by the prophet Jeremy], saying, And they have taken thirty pieces [of silver], the price of a man praised, whom they praised of the children of Israel;

10 and they gave them into a field of a potter, as the Lord hath ordained to me [as the Lord ordained to me].

Matthew 27:3-10 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

Then when Judas who had betrayed him saw that he was condemned, he repented, and brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, saying, I have sinned, betraying the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? You see to it. And Judas cast down the silver pieces in the temple and departed, and went and hanged himself.

And the chief priests took the silver pieces and said, It is not lawful to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood. And they took counsel, and bought with the money a potter’s field to bury strangers in. Therefore that field is called the Field of Blood until this day. Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying: And they took thirty silver pieces, the price of him that was sold, whom they bought from the children of Israel, 10 and gave them for the potter’s field, as the Lord appointed me.

[a]Then when Judas which betrayed him, saw that he was condemned, he repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief Priests, and Elders,

Saying, I have sinned, betraying the innocent blood. But they said, What is that to us? see thou to it.

And when he had cast down the silver pieces in the Temple, he [b]departed, and went, and hanged himself.

And the chief Priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for us to put them into the [c]treasure, because it is the price [d]of blood.

And they took counsel, and bought with them a potter’s field, for the burial of [e]strangers.

Wherefore that field is called, The field of blood, until this day.

(Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by [f]Jeremiah the Prophet, saying, [g]And they took thirty silver pieces, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel valued.

10 And they gave them for the potter’s field, as the Lord appointed me.)

  6. Matthew 27:9 Seeing this prophecy is read in Zech. 11:12, it cannot be denied, but Jeremiah’s name crept into the text, either through the Printer’s fault, or some other’s ignorance: it may be also that it came out of the margin, by reason of the abbreviation of the letters, the one being iou, and the other zou, which are not much unlike: but in the Syrian text the Prophet’s name is not set down at all.
  7. Matthew 27:9 The Evangelist doth not follow the Prophet’s words, but his meaning, which he showeth to be fulfilled.
