8:23And when he entred into a shippe, his disciples folowed hym:
8:24And beholde, there arose a great tempest in the sea, [in so much] that the shippe was couered with waues: but he was a slepe.
8:25And his disciples came to hym, and awoke hym, saying: Lorde saue vs, we peryshe.
8:26And he sayth vnto them: Why are ye fearefull, O ye of litle fayth? Then he arose, and rebuked the windes, and the sea: and there folowed a great calme.
8:27But the men marueyled, saying: What maner of man is this, that both wyndes and sea obey hym?

8:30And there was, a good way of from them, a hearde of many swyne, feedyng.
8:31So, the deuyls besought hym, saying: Yf thou cast vs out, suffer vs to go away into the hearde of swyne.
8:32And he sayde vnto them, go. Then went they out, and departed into the hearde of swyne: And beholde, ye whole hearde of swyne russhed headlong into the sea, and peryshed in the waters.
8:33Then they that kept them, fledde, and went theyr wayes into the citie, and tolde euery thyng, and what was done of the possessed with the deuyls.
8:34And beholde, the whole citie came out to meete Iesus: and when they sawe hym, they besought hym, that he woulde depart out of theyr coastes.

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.
