7:1Then said ye chiefe priest: Are these thynges so?
7:2And he said: Ye men, brethren, and fathers, hearken. The God of glorie appeared vnto our father Abraham, when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Charran,
7:3And sayde vnto him: Get thee out of thy countrey, & fro thy kinrede, & come into the lande which I shall shew thee.
7:4Then came he out of the lande of the Chaldeans, and dwelt in Charran: and from thence, whe his father was dead, he brought hym into this lande wherin ye nowe dwell.
7:5And he gaue hym none inheritaunce in it, no not the breadth of a foote: and promised that he woulde geue it to hym to possesse, and to his seede after hym, when as yet he had no chylde.
7:6God veryly spake on this wyse, that his seede shoulde soiourne in a straunge lande, and that they shoulde kepe it in bondage, and entreate them euyl foure hundreth yeres.
7:7And the nation to whom they shalbe in bondage, wyll I iudge, sayde God: And after that, shall they come foorth, & serue me in this place.
7:8And he gaue hym the couenaunt of circumcision: And he begate Isaac, and circumcised hym the eyght day, and Isaac [begate] Iacob, and Iacob [begate] the twelue patriarkes.
7:9And the patriarkes moued with enuie, solde Ioseph into Egypt: and God was with hym,
7:10And deliuered hym out of all his aduersities, and gaue hym fauour & wisedome in the syght of Pharao kyng of Egypt: and he made hym gouernour ouer Egypt, & ouer all his housholde.
7:11But there came a dearth ouer all the land of Egypt and Chanaan: and great affliction, that our fathers founde no sustenaunce.
7:12But when Iacob hearde that there was corne in Egypt, he sent our fathers first.
7:13And at the second time, Ioseph was knowen of his brethren, and Iosephes kinrede was made knowen vnto Pharao.
7:14Then sent Ioseph, and caused his father to be brought, and all his kynne, three score and fyfteene soules.
7:15And Iacob descended into Egypt, and dyed, both he and our fathers,
7:16And were caryed ouer into Sichem, and layde in the sepulchre, that Abraha bought for money of the sonnes of Emor, the sonne of Sichem.
7:17But when the tyme of the promyse drewe nye, whiche God had sworne to Abraham, the people grewe and multiplied in Egypt:
7:18Tyll another king arose, which knew not of Ioseph.
7:19The same dealt subtilly with our kinrede, and euyll intreated our fathers, & made them caste out their young chyldren, that they shoulde not remayne alyue.
7:20The same tyme was Moyses borne, and was acceptable vnto God, and norished vp in his fathers house three monethes.
7:21And when he was cast out, Pharaos daughter toke hym vp, & norished hym for her owne sonne.
7:22And Moyses was learned in all maner of wisedome of the Egyptians, and was myghtie in deedes and in wordes.
7:23And when he was full fourtie yeres olde, it came into his heart to visite his brethren the chyldren of Israel.
7:24And when he sawe one of them suffer wrong, he defended hym, and auenged his quarrell that had the harme done to hym, and smote the Egyptian.
7:25For he supposed his brethren woulde haue vnderstande, howe that God by his hande shoulde delyuer them: But they vnderstoode not.
7:26And the next day he shewed hym selfe vnto them as they stroue, and woulde haue set them at one agayne, saying: Sirs, ye are brethren, why do ye wrong one to another?
7:27But he that did his neighbour wrong, thrust hym awaye, saying: Who made thee a ruler and a iudge ouer vs?
7:28Wylt thou kyll me, as thou diddest the Egyptian yesterday?
7:29Then fledde Moyses at that saying, and was a straunger in the lande of Madian, where he begate two sonnes.
7:30And whe fourtie yeres were expired, there appeared to hym in the wyldernesse of mount Sina, an Angel of the Lorde in a flambe of fire in a busshe.
7:31When Moyses sawe it, he wondred at ye sight: And as he drue neare to behold, the voyce of the Lord came vnto hym.
7:32I am the God of thy fathers, ye God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and ye God of Iacob. Then Moyses trembled, & durst not beholde.
7:33Then sayde the Lorde to hym: Put of thy shoes from thy feete, for the place where thou standest, is holy grounde.
7:34I haue seene, I haue seene the afflictio of my people which is in Egypt, and I haue hearde their gronyng, and am come downe to deliuer them: And now come, & I wyll sende thee into Egypt.
7:35This Moyses, whom they forsoke saying, who made thee a ruler and a iudge? the same dyd God sende, to be a ruler, and a deliuerer, by the handes of the angell, whiche appeared to hym in the busshe.
7:36He brought them out, shewyng wonders and signes in Egypt, & in the read sea, & in the wyldernesse fourtie yeres.
7:37This is that Moyses which saide vnto the chyldren of Israel: A prophete shall the Lorde your God raise vp vnto you of your brethren, lyke vnto me, him shall ye heare.
7:38This is he that was in the Churche in ye wyldernesse with the angel, which spake to hym in the mount Sinai, and with our fathers: This man receaued the worde of lyfe to geue vnto vs.
7:39To whom our fathers woulde not obey, but thrust it from them, and in their hearts turned backe againe into Egypt,
7:40Saying vnto Aaron, Make vs gods to go before vs. For as for this Moyses that brought vs out of the lande of Egypt, we wote not what is become of hym.
7:41And they made a Calfe in those dayes, and offred sacrifice vnto the idoll, and reioyced ouer the workes of their owne handes.
7:42Then God turned hym selfe away, & gaue them vp to worship the hoast of heauen, as it is written in ye booke of the prophetes: O ye house of Israel, haue ye offered to me slayne beastes, and sacrifices, by the space of fourtie yeres in the wyldernesse?
7:43And ye toke vnto you the tabernacle of Moloch, and the starre of your god Remphan, figures whiche ye made to worship them: And I wyll carry you away beyonde Babylon.
7:44Our fathers had ye tabernacle of witnesse in the wyldernesse, as he had appoynted, speakyng vnto Moyses, that he shoulde make it accordyng to the fasshion that he had seene.
7:45Whiche also our fathers that came after, brought in with Iesus into the possession of the gentiles, who God draue out before the face of our fathers, vnto the dayes of Dauid.
7:46Which founde fauour before God, and woulde fayne haue founde a tabernacle for the God of Iacob.
7:47But Solomon buylt hym an house.
7:48Howebeit, he that is hyest of al, dwelleth not in teples made with handes, as sayth the prophete:
7:49Heauen is my seate, and earth is my footstoole. What house wyll ye buylde for me, saith the Lord? Or which is the place of my rest?
7:50Hath not my hande made all these thynges?
7:51Ye styfnecked and of vncircumcised heartes and eares, ye haue alwayes resisted the holy ghost: as your fathers dyd, so do ye.
7:52Which of the prophetes haue not your fathers persecuted? And they haue slayne them which shewed before of the commyng of that iuste, of whom ye are nowe the betrayers and murtherers:
7:53Whiche also haue receaued the lawe, by the disposition of angels, and haue not kept it.
7:54When they hearde these thynges, their heartes claue a sunder, and they gnasshed on hym with their teeth.
7:55But he being full of the holy ghost, loked vp stedfastly into heauen, and sawe the glory of God, and Iesus standyng on the ryght hande of God,
7:56And sayde: Beholde, I see the heauens open, & the sonne of man standyng on the ryght hande of God.
7:57Then they gaue a shoute with a loude voyce, and stopped their eares, and ran vpon hym all at once,
7:58And cast hym out of the citie, and stoned him. And ye witnesses layde downe their clothes at a young mans feete, whose name was Saul.
7:59And they stoned Steuen, callyng on, and saying: Lorde Iesu receaue my spirite.
7:60And he kneeled downe, and cryed with a loude voyce: Lorde lay not this sinne to their charge. And when he had thus spoken, he fell a sleepe.

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.
