9:1And he saide vnto them: Ueryly I say vnto you, ther be some of them that stande here, whiche shall not taste of death, tyll they haue seene ye kyngdome of God come, with power.
9:2And after sixe dayes, Iesus taketh Peter, and Iames, and Iohn, and leadeth them vp into an hye mountayne, out of the way, alone: and he was transfigured before them.
9:3And his rayment dyd shyne, & became very whyte, euen as snowe: so whyte, as no fuller can make vpon the earth.
9:4And there appeared vnto them Elias, with Moyses: And they talked with Iesu.
9:5And Peter aunswered, and sayth to Iesu: Maister, here is good beyng for vs, let vs make also three tabernacles, one for thee, and one for Moyses, and one for Elias.
9:6For he wist not what he saide, for they were afrayde.
9:7And there was a cloude that shadowed them: and a voyce came out of the cloude, saying, This is my beloued sonne, heare hym.
9:8And sodenly, when they had loked rounde about, they sawe no man, more then Iesus only, with them.
9:9And as they came downe from the hyll, he charged them, that they should tell no man those thynges that they had seene, tyll the sonne of man were rysen from the dead agayne.
9:10And they kept that saying with them, and demaunded one of another, what the rysing from the dead againe, should meane?
9:11And they asked hym, saying: Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come?
9:12He aunswered, and sayde vnto them: Elias veryly when he commeth firste, restoreth all thynges: And the sonne of man, as it is written of hym, shall suffer many thynges, & be set at naught.
9:13But I saye vnto you, that Elias is come, & they haue done vnto him whatsoeuer they would, as it is writte of him.
9:14And when he came to his disciples, he sawe much people about them, and the scribes disputyng with them.
9:15And strayghtway all the people, whe they behelde hym, were amased, & ran to hym, and saluted hym.
9:16And he asked the scribes, what dispute ye with them?
9:17And one of the companie aunswered, & sayde: Maister, I haue brought vnto thee my sonne, whiche hath a dumbe spirite:
9:18And whensoeuer he taketh hym, he teareth hym, & he fometh, and gnasheth with his teeth, & pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples, that they should cast hym out, and they coulde not.
9:19He aunswereth hym, and sayth: O faythlesse nation, howe long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? Bryng hym vnto me.
9:20And they brought him vnto him: And when he sawe hym, strayghtway the spirite tare hym: And he fell downe on the grounde, wallowyng and fomyng.
9:21And he asketh his father, howe longe it is a go sence this came vnto hym? And he sayde, of a chylde.
9:22And oft tymes it hath cast hym into the fire, and into the water, to destroye hym: But yf thou canst do any thyng, haue mercy on vs, and helpe vs.
9:23Iesus sayde vnto hym: this thyng yf thou cans beleue, all thynges are possible to hym that beleueth.
9:24And strayghtwaye the father of the childe cryed with teares, saying: Lorde I beleue, helpe thou mine vnbeliefe.
9:25When Iesus sawe that the people came runnyng together, he rebuked the foule spirite, saying vnto hym: Thou dumbe and deafe spirite, I charge thee come out of hym, and enter no more into hym.
9:26And the spirite, when he had cryed and rent him sore, came out of hym: and he was as one that had ben dead, insomuch that many sayde, he is dead.
9:27But Iesus caught hym by the hande, and lyft hym vp: and he rose.
9:28And whe he was come into the house, his disciples asked hym secretely: Why coulde not we cast hym out?
9:29And he saide vnto them: This kynde can come foorth by nothing, but by prayer and fastyng.
9:30And they departed thence, and toke their iorney thorowe Galilee: and he would not yt any man should knowe it.
9:31For he taught his disciples, and sayde vnto them: The sonne of man, shalbe deliuered into the handes of men, & they shall kyll him: and, after that he is kylled, he shall ryse agayne the thirde day.
9:32But they vnderstoode not that saying, and were afrayde to aske hym.
9:33And he came to Capernaum: And when he was come into the house, he asked them, What was it that ye disputed among your selues by the way?
9:34And they helde their peace: For by the way, they had reasoned among them selues, who shoulde be the chiefest.
9:35And when he was set downe, he called the twelue to hym, and sayde vnto them: If any man desire to be first, the same shalbe last of al, & seruaut vnto al.
9:36And he toke a young childe, & set him in the myddes of them: and when he had taken hym in his armes, he sayde vnto them.
9:37Whosoeuer receaueth any such a young chylde in my name, receaueth me: And whosoeuer receaueth me, receaueth not me, but hym that sent me.
9:38Iohn aunswered him, saying: Maister, we sawe one caste out deuylles in thy name, & he foloweth not vs: and we forbad him, because he foloweth vs not.
9:39But Iesus sayde, forbyd hym not: For there is no man, whiche, yf he do a miracle in my name, can lyghtly speake euyll of me.
9:40For he that is not against vs, is on our part.
9:41Whosoeuer shall in my name geue you a cup of colde water to drynke, because ye belong to Christe: veryly I say vnto you, he shall not lose his rewarde.
9:42And whosoeuer shall offende one of these litle ones, that beleue in me, it were better for him, if a mylstone were hanged about his necke, and he were cast into the sea.
9:43And yf thy hande offende thee, cut it of: It is better for thee to enter into lyfe maymed, then hauyng two handes, to go into hell, into fire that neuer shalbe quenched:
9:44Where their worme dyeth not, & the fire goeth not out.
9:45And yf thy foote offende thee, cut it of: It is better for thee to go halt into lyfe, then hauyng two feete, to be cast into hell, into fire that neuer shalbe queched:
9:46Where their worme dyeth not, and the fire goeth not out.
9:47And if thine eye offend thee, plucke it out: It is better for thee to go into the kyngdome of God with one eye, then hauing two eyes, to be cast into hell fire:
9:48Where their worme dyeth not, and the fire goeth not out.
9:49Euery man shalbe salted with fire: and euery sacrifice shalbe seasoned with salt.
9:50Salt is good: But if the salt be vnsauerie, with what thyng shall you season it? Haue salt in your selues, and haue peace among your selues, one with an other.

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.
