Bishops Bible 1568

 

   

15:1Then came to Iesus Scribes and Pharisees, which were come from Hierusalem, saying:
15:2Why do thy disciples transgresse the traditions of the elders? for they washe not their handes when they eate bread.
15:3But he aunswered and sayde vnto them: why do ye also transgresse the commaundement of God, by your tradition?
15:4For God comaunded, saying: honour father and mother, and he that curseth father or mother, let hym dye the death.
15:5But ye say, whosoeuer shall say to father or mother: by the gyft that [is offered] of me, thou shalt be helped:
15:6And so shall he not honour his father or his mother. And thus haue ye made the commaundement of God, of none effect, by your tradition.
15:7Hypocrites, full well dyd Esayas prophecie of you, saying:
15:8This people draweth nye vnto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lippes: howbeit, their hearts are farre from me.
15:9But in vayne do they worshippe me, teachyng doctrine, preceptes of men.
15:10And he called the people to hym, and sayde vnto them: heare, & vnderstande.
15:11That which goeth into the mouth, defyleth not the man: but that which commeth out of the mouth, defyleth the man.
15:12Then came his disciples, and sayde vnto hym: knowest thou not, that the Pharisees were offended after they hearde this saying?
15:13But he aunswered and sayde: Euery plantyng which my heauenly father hath not planted, shalbe rooted vp.
15:14Let them alone, they be the blynde leaders of the blynde. If the blynde leade the blynde, both shall fall into the dytche.
15:15Then aunswered Peter, and sayde vnto hym: Declare vnto vs this parable.
15:16Iesus sayde: Are ye also without vnderstandyng?
15:17Do not ye yet vnderstande, that whatsoeuer entreth in at the mouth, goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?
15:18But those thynges which proceade out of the mouth, come foorth from the heart, and they defyle the man.
15:19For out of the heart, proceade euyll thoughtes, murders, adulteries, whordomes, theftes, false witnesse, blasphemyes.
15:20These are the thynges, which defyle a man: But to eate with vnwasshen handes, defyleth not a man.
15:21And Iesus went thence, and departed into the coastes of Tyre and Sidon.
15:22And beholde, a woman of the Chananites, which came out of the same coastes, cryed vnto hym, saying: Haue mercie on me O Lorde, thou sonne of Dauid: My daughter is greeuously vexed with a deuyll.
15:23But he aunswered her not a worde: and his disciples came, and besought hym, saying: sende her away, for she cryeth after vs.
15:24But he aunswered, and sayde: I am not sent but vnto the lost sheepe of the house of Israel.
15:25Then came she, and worshipped him, saying: Lorde, helpe me.
15:26He aunswered, and sayde: it is not meete to take the chyldrens bread, and to cast it to litle dogges.
15:27She aunswered and sayde, trueth Lorde: and yet litle dogges eate of the crummes, which fall fro their maisters table.
15:28Then Iesus aunswered, and sayde vnto her: O woman, great is thy fayth, be it vnto thee, euen as thou wylt. And her daughter was made whole, euen from that same tyme.
15:29And Iesus went from thence, and came nye vnto the sea of Galilee, and went vp into a mountayne, and sate downe there.
15:30And great multitudes came vnto him, hauyng with them those that were lame, blynde, dumbe, maymed, & other many, and cast them downe at Iesus feete: And he healed them.
15:31In so much that the people wondred, when they sawe the dumbe speake, the maymed to be whole, the lame to walke, and the blynde to see: And they glorified the God of Israel.
15:32Then Iesus called his disciples vnto hym, and sayde: I haue compassion on the people, because they continue with me nowe three dayes, and haue nothing to eate: and I wyll not let them depart fastyng, lest they faynt in the way.
15:33And his disciples say vnto hym: whence [shoulde we get] so much bread in the wyldernesse, as to suffise so great a multitude?
15:34And Iesus sayeth vnto them: howe many loaues haue ye? And they say, seuen, and a fewe litle fisshes.
15:35And he commaunded the people to sit downe on the grounde:
15:36And toke the seuen loaues, and the fisshes: and after that he had geuen thankes, he brake them, and gaue to his disciples, and the disciples gaue them to the people.
15:37And they dyd all eate, and were suffised: And they toke vp, of the broken meate that was left, seuen baskets full.
15:38And yet they that did eate, were foure thousande men, besyde women and chyldren.
15:39And he sent away the people, and toke shippe, and came into the parties of Magdala.

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.
