Bishops Bible 1568

 

   

19:1And it came to passe, that when Iesus had finished these sayinges, he gat hym from Galilee, and came into the coastes of Iurie, beyonde Iordane:
19:2And great multitudes folowed hym: and he healed them there.
19:3The pharisees also came vnto hym, temptyng hym, and saying vnto hym: Is it lawfull for a man to put away his wyfe, for euery cause?
19:4He aunswered and sayde vnto them: Haue ye not read, that he which created at the begynnyng, made them male and female,
19:5And sayde: For this cause, shall a man leaue father and mother, and shall be knit to his wyfe: and they twayne shall be one fleshe.
19:6Wherfore, they are no more twayne, but one fleshe. Let not man therefore put a sunder, that which God hath coupled together.
19:7They say vnto hym: why did Moyses then commaunde to geue a writyng of diuorcement, and to put her away?
19:8He sayde vnto them: Moyses, because of the hardnes of your heartes, suffred you to put away your wyues: But from the begynnyng it was not so.
19:9I say vnto you: whosoeuer putteth away his wyfe, except it be for fornication, and maryeth another, committeth adulterie: And who so maryeth her which is diuorced, doth comit adulterie.
19:10His disciples say vnto hym: If the matter be so betwene man and wyfe, [then] is it not good to mary.
19:11He sayde vnto them: all men can not receaue this saying, saue they to whom it is geuen.
19:12For there are some chaste, which are so borne, out of their mothers wombe: And there are some chaste, which be made chaste of me: And there be chaste, which haue made themselues chaste, for the kyngdome of heauens sake. He that is able to receaue [it], let him receaue [it].
19:13Then were there brought vnto hym young chyldren, that he shoulde put his handes on them, and pray: And the disciples rebuked them.
19:14But Iesus sayde vnto them: suffer the young chyldren, and forbyd them not to come vnto me: for of such, is the kyngdome of heauen.
19:15And when he had put his handes on them, he departed thence.
19:16And beholde, one came, and sayde vnto hym: good maister, what good thyng shall I do, that I may haue eternall lyfe?
19:17He sayde vnto hym: why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, [and that is] God. But yf thou wylt enter into lyfe, kepe the commaundementes.
19:18He sayth vnto hym: Which? Iesus sayde: Thou shalt do no murther, Thou shalt not commit adulterie, Thou shalt not steale, Thou shalt not beare false witnesse,
19:19Honour father and mother: and thou shalt loue thy neighbour as thy selfe.
19:20The young man sayth vnto hym: All these [thynges] haue I kept, from my youth vp: what lacke I yet?
19:21Iesus sayde vnto hym: yf thou wylt be perfect, go & sell that thou hast, and geue to the poore, & thou shalt haue treasure in heauen: and come & folowe me.
19:22But when the young man hearde that saying, he went away sory: For he had great possessions.
19:23Then Iesus sayde vnto his disciples: Ueryly I say vnto you, that a riche [man] shall hardly enter into the kyngdome of heauen.
19:24And agayne I say vnto you: it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a nedle, then for the riche, to enter into the kyngdome of God.
19:25When the disciples hearde this, they were exceadyngly amazed, saying: who then can be saued?
19:26But Iesus behelde them, and sayde vnto them: with men this is vnpossible, but with God all thynges are possible.
19:27Then aunswered Peter, and sayde vnto hym: Beholde, we haue forsaken all, and folowed thee, what shall we haue therfore?
19:28Iesus sayde vnto them: veryly I say vnto you, that when the sonne of man shall syt in the throne of his maiestie, ye that haue folowed me in the regeneration, shall syt also vpon twelue seates, and iudge the twelue tribes of Israel.
19:29And euery one that forsaketh house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wyfe, or chyldren, or landes, for my names sake, shall receaue an hundred folde, and shall inherite euerlastyng lyfe.
19:30But many that are first, shalbe last, and the last, shalbe first.

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.
