Matthew 8:18-22 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

18 And Jesus saw much people about him, and bade his disciples go over the water. [Soothly Jesus seeing many companies about him, commanded his disciples to go over the water.]

19 And a scribe approached, and said to him[a], Master, I shall follow thee, whither ever thou shalt go.

20 And Jesus said to him, Foxes have dens, and birds of the air have nests, but man's Son hath not wherein to rest his head. [And Jesus said to him, Foxes have burrows, or dens, and birds of the air have nests, but man's Son hath not where he shall rest his head.]

21 [Soothly] Another of his disciples said to him, Lord, suffer me to go first, and bury my father.

22 But Jesus said to him, Follow thou me, and let the dead men bury their dead men.
