Bishops Bible 1568

 

   

12:1At that tyme Iesus went on the Sabbath dayes through the corne, and his disciples were an hungred, and began to plucke the eares of corne, & to eate.
12:2But when the Pharisees sawe it, they sayde vnto hym: Beholde, thy disciples do that which is not lawfull to do vpon the Sabbath day.
12:3But he sayde vnto them: Haue ye not read what Dauid did when he was an hungred, and they that were with him:
12:4Howe he entred into the house of God, and did eate the shew bread, which was not lawfull for hym to eate, neither for them which were with hym, but only for the priestes?
12:5Or haue ye not read in the lawe, howe that on the Sabbath dayes the priestes in the temple prophane the Sabbath, and are blamelesse?
12:6But I say vnto you, that in this place is one greater then the temple.
12:7Wherfore if ye wist what this meaneth, I will mercie & not sacrifice: ye woulde not haue condempned the giltlesse.
12:8For the sonne of man also is Lorde euen of the Sabbath day.
12:9And he departed thence, and went into their synagogue,
12:10And beholde there was a man which had his hande dryed vp, and they asked him, saying: Is it lawfull to heale vpon the Sabbath dayes? that they might accuse him.
12:11And he sayde vnto them: What man of you wyll there be that shall haue a sheepe, & if it fall into a pit on the Sabbath day, wyll he not take holde of it, and lift it out?
12:12Howe much more then is a man better then a sheepe? Wherfore it is lawfull to do a good deede on the Sabbath dayes.
12:13Then saith he to the man, Stretch foorth thy hande. And he stretched it foorth: and it was made whole like as the other.
12:14Then the Pharisees went out, and helde a counsayle agaynst him, howe they might destroy hym.
12:15But when Iesus knewe it, he departed thence: and great multitudes folowed him, and he healed them all,
12:16And charged them that they shoulde not make him knowen:
12:17That it might be fulfylled which was spoken by Esaias the prophete, saying:
12:18Beholde my childe whom I haue chosen, my beloued in whom my soule well delighteth: I wyll put my spirite vpon him, and he shall shewe iudgement to the gentiles.
12:19He shall not striue nor crye, neither shal any man heare his voyce in the streetes.
12:20A bruised reede shall he not breake, and smokyng flaxe shall he not quenche, tyll he sende foorth iudgement vnto victorie:
12:21And in his name shall the gentiles trust.
12:22Then was brought to him one possessed with a deuyll, blinde, and dumbe: and he healed him, insomuch that the blinde and dumbe both spake and sawe.
12:23And all the people were amased and sayde: Is not this that sonne of Dauid?
12:24But when the Pharisees hearde it, they sayde: This [felowe] driueth the deuils no otherwise out, but by Beelzebub the prince of the deuils.
12:25But whe Iesus knew their thoughtes, he sayde vnto them, Euery kingdome deuided agaynst it selfe shalbe brought to naught: and euery citie or house deuided agaynst it selfe shall not stande.
12:26And if Satan cast out Satan, then is he deuided agaynst him selfe: howe shall then his kingdome endure?
12:27Also if I by Beelzebub cast out deuils, by whom do your children cast them out? Therfore they shalbe your iudges.
12:28But if I cast out the deuils by the spirite of God: then is the kingdome of God come vpon you.
12:29Or els howe can one enter into a strong mans house, & spoyle his goodes, except he first binde the strong man, and then spoyle his house?
12:30He that is not with me, is agaynst me: and he that gathereth not with me, scattereth abrode.
12:31Wherfore, I say vnto you, all maner of sinne and blasphemy shalbe forgeuen vnto men, but the blasphemy agaynst the spirite, shall not be forgeuen vnto men.
12:32And whosoeuer speaketh a worde agaynst the sonne of man, it shalbe forgeuen hym: But whosoeuer speaketh agaynst the holy ghost, it shall not be forgeuen hym, neither in this worlde, neither in the worlde to come.
12:33Either make the tree good, and his fruite good: or els make the tree euyll, and his fruite euyll. For the tree, is knowen by his fruite.
12:34O generation of vipers, howe can ye speake good thynges, when ye your selues are euyll? For out of the aboundauce of the heart, the mouth speaketh.
12:35A good man, out of the good treasure of the heart, bryngeth foorth good thynges: And an euyll man, out of euyll treasure, bryngeth foorth euyll thynges.
12:36But I say vnto you, of euery idell worde that men shall speake, they shall geue accompt therof, in the day of iudgment.
12:37For of thy wordes, thou shalt be iustified: and of thy wordes, thou shalt be condemned.
12:38Then certayne of the Scribes, and of the Pharisees, aunswered hym, saying. Maister, we wyl see a signe of thee.
12:39But he aunswered and sayde to them. The euyll and adulterous generation seketh a signe, and there shall no signe be geuen to it, but the signe of the prophete Ionas.
12:40For as Ionas was three dayes, and three nyghtes, in the Whales belly: so shall the sonne of man be three dayes, and three nyghtes, in the heart of the earth.
12:41The men of Niniue shall ryse in the iudgement, with this nation, and condemne it, because they repented at the preachyng of Ionas: and beholde, here [is] one greater then Ionas.
12:42The Queene of the south shall ryse in the iudgement, with this generation, and shall condemne it: for she came from the vtmost partes of the earth, to heare the wisdome of Solomon. And beholde, in this place [is] one greater then Solomon.
12:43When the vncleane spirite is gone out of a man, he walketh throughout drye places, sekyng rest, and fyndeth none.
12:44Then he sayeth: I wyll returne into my house, from whence I came out. And when he is come, he fyndeth it emptie, swept, and garnyshed.
12:45Then goeth he, and taketh vnto hym seuen other spirites, worse then hym selfe, and they enter in, and dwell there: And the ende of that man, is worse then the begynnyng. Euen so shall it be also, vnto this frowarde generation.
12:46Whyle he yet talked to the people, beholde, his mother, and his brethren stoode without, desyryng to speake with hym.
12:47Then one sayde vnto hym: beholde, thy mother, and thy brethren, stande without, desyryng to speake with thee.
12:48But he aunswered, and sayde vnto hym that had tolde hym: Who is my mother? or who are my brethren?
12:49And he stretched foorth his hande towarde his disciples, & sayde, beholde my mother, and my brethren.
12:50For whosoeuer shall do the wyll of my father which is in heauen, the same is my brother, sister, and mother.

Bishops Bible 1568

The Bishops' Bible was produced under the authority of the established Church of England in 1568. It was substantially revised in 1572, and the 1602 edition was prescribed as the base text for the King James Bible completed in 1611. The thorough Calvinism of the Geneva Bible offended the Church of England, to which almost all of its bishops subscribed. They associated Calvinism with Presbyterianism, which sought to replace government of the church by bishops with government by lay elders. However, they were aware that the Great Bible of 1539 , which was the only version then legally authorized for use in Anglican worship, was severely deficient, in that much of the Old Testament and Apocrypha was translated from the Latin Vulgate, rather than from the original Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek. In an attempt to replace the objectionable Geneva translation, they circulated one of their own, which became known as the Bishops' Bible.
