Bishops Bible 1568

 

   

5:1When he saw the multitude, he went vp into a mountayne: & when he was set, his disciples came to hym.
5:2And he opened his mouth, & taught them, saying.
5:3Blessed (are) the poore in spirite: for theirs is the kyngdome of heauen.
5:4Blessed (are) they that mourne: for they shalbe comforted.
5:5Blessed (are) the meke: for they shall inherite the earth.
5:6Blessed (are) they, which do hunger and thirste (after) righteousnes: for they shalbe satisfied.
5:7Blessed (are) the mercyfull: for they shall obteyne mercy.
5:8Blessed (are) the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
5:9Blessed (are) the peace makers: for they shalbe called the chyldren of God.
5:10Blessed (are) they which suffer persecution for righteousnes sake: for theirs is the kyngdome of heauen.
5:11Blessed are ye, whe (men) reuyle you, and persecute (you) and, lying, shall say all maner of euyll saying agaynst you, for my sake.
5:12Reioyce, and be glad: for great is your rewarde in heauen. For so persecuted they the prophetes, whiche were before you.
5:13Ye are the salt of the earth. But yf the salt become vnsauery, where in shall it be salted? It is thencefoorth good for nothing, but to be caste out, and to be troden vnder foote of men.
5:14Ye are the lyght of the worlde. A citie that is set on an hyll, can not be hyd.
5:15Neyther do men lyght a candell, and put it vnder a busshell: but on a candelsticke, and it geueth lyght vnto all that are in the house.
5:16Let your lyght so shyne before men, that they may see your good workes, and glorifie your father, whiche is in heauen.
5:17Thynke not that I am come to destroy the lawe, or the prophetes. I am not come to destroy, but to fulfyll.
5:18For truely I say vnto you, tyll heauen and earth passe, one iotte, or one title of the lawe shall not scape, tyll all be fulfylled.
5:19Whosoeuer therfore breaketh one of these least commaundementes, and teacheth men so, he shalbe called the leaste in the kyngdome of heauen. But who so euer doeth, and teacheth (so) the same shalbe called great in the kyngdome of heauen.
5:20For I say vnto you: except your righteousnes, excede the righteousnes of the Scribes and Pharisees, ye shall not enter into the kyngdome of heauen.
5:21Ye haue hearde, that it was sayde to them of the olde tyme, thou shalt not kyll: who so euer kylleth, shalbe in daunger of iudgement.
5:22But I say vnto you, that who so euer is angry with his brother, vnaduisedly, shalbe in daunger of iudgement. And who so euer shall say vnto his brother, racha, shalbe in daunger of a councell: But, whosoeuer shall saye (thou) foole, shalbe in daunger of hell fire.
5:23Therfore, if thou bring thy gyft to the aulter, and there remembrest, that thy brother hath ought agaynst thee:
5:24Leaue there thy gyft, before the aulter, and go thy way, first and be reconciled to thy brother: and then, come and offer thy gyft.
5:25Agree with thyne aduersarie quicklye, whyles thou art in the waye with him: lest at any tyme the aduersarie deliuer thee to the iudge, and the iudge deliuer thee to the minister, and then thou be cast into pryson.
5:26Ueryly I say vnto thee, thou shalt not come out thence, tyll thou hast payde the vtmost farthyng.
5:27Ye haue hearde, that it was sayde vnto them of olde tyme: Thou shalt not commit adultry.
5:28But I say vnto you, that whosoeuer loketh on a woman, to luste after her, hath committed adultry with her alredy, in his heart.
5:29If thy ryght eye offende thee, plucke it out, and cast it from thee. For better it is vnto thee, that one of thy members perishe, the that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
5:30And yf thy ryght hande offende thee, cut it of, and cast it from thee. For better it is vnto thee, that one of thy members perishe, then that all thy body shoulde be cast into hell.
5:31It is saide: whosoeuer putteth away his wyfe, let hym geue her a wrytyng of diuorcement.
5:32But I say vnto you, that whosoeuer doeth put awaye his wyfe, except it be for fornication, causeth her to commit adultry. And whosoeuer maryeth her that is diuorced, committeth adultry.
5:33Agayne, ye haue hearde that it was sayde vnto them of olde tyme: Thou shalt not forsweare thy selfe, but shalt perfourme vnto the Lorde thine othes.
5:34But, I say vnto you: Sweare not at all, neither by heauen, for it is gods seate,
5:35Nor by the earth, for it is his footestoole, neither by Hierusalem, for it is the citie of the great kyng.
5:36Neither shalt thou sweare by thy head, because thou canst not make one heere whyte or blacke.
5:37But let your communication be yea, yea, nay nay. For whatsoeuer is more then these, commeth of euyll.
5:38Ye haue hearde, that it is sayde, an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.
5:39But, I say vnto you, that ye resist not euyll. But, whosoeuer geueth thee a blowe on thy right cheeke, turne to him the other also.
5:40And yf any man wyll sue thee at the lawe, and take away thy coate, let him haue thy cloke also.
5:41And whosoeuer wyll compell thee to go a myle, go with hym twayne.
5:42Geue to hym that asketh thee: & from hym that woulde borowe of thee, turne not thou away.
5:43Ye haue heard, that it is saide: Thou shalt loue thy neyghbour, & hate thyne enemie.
5:44But I saye vnto you, loue your enemies, blesse them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, pray for the which hurt you, and persecute you:
5:45That ye may be the chyldren of your father, which is in heauen. For he maketh his sonne to aryse on the euyll, and on the good, and sendeth rayne on the iust, and on the vniust.
5:46For yf ye loue them which loue you, what rewarde haue ye? Do not the publicans also euen the same?
5:47And yf ye salute or greete your brethre only, what singuler thyng do ye? Do not also the publicans lykewyse?
5:48Ye shall therfore be perfecte, euen as your father, which is in heauen, is perfecte.

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.
