Geneva Bible 1560

 

   

15:1Then came to Iesus the Scribes and Pharises, which were of Hierusalem, saying,
15:2Why do thy disciples transgresse the tradition of the Elders? for they wash not their hands when they eate bread.
15:3But he answered and said vnto them, Why doe yee also transgresse the commandement of God by your tradition?
15:4For God hath commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and he that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.
15:5But ye say, Whosoeuer shall say to father or mother, By the gift that is offered by me, thou maiest haue profite,
15:6Though hee honour not his father, or his mother, shalbe free: thus haue ye made the commandement of God of no aucthoritie by your tradition.
15:7O hypocrites, Esaias prophecied well of you, saying,
15:8This people draweth neere vnto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with the lips, but their heart is farre off from me.
15:9But in vaine they worship me, teaching for doctrines, mens precepts.
15:10Then hee called the multitude vnto him, and said to them, Heare and vnderstand.
15:11That which goeth into the mouth, defileth not the man, but that which commeth out of the mouth, that defileth the man.
15:12Then came his disciples, and saide vnto him, Perceiuest thou not, that the Pharises are offended in hearing this saying?
15:13But hee answered and saide, Euery plant which mine heauenly Father hath not planted, shalbe rooted vp.
15:14Let them alone, they be the blinde leaders of the blinde: and if the blinde leade ye blinde, both shall fall into the ditche.
15:15Then answered Peter, and said to him, Declare vnto vs this parable.
15:16Then said Iesus, Are ye yet without vnderstanding?
15:17Perceiue ye not yet, that whatsoeuer entreth into the mouth, goeth into the bellie, and is cast out into the draught?
15:18But those thinges which proceede out of the mouth, come from the heart, and they defile the man.
15:19For out of the heart come euil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false testimonies, slaunders.
15:20These are the things, which defile the man: but to eat with vnwashen hands, defileth not ye man.
15:21And Iesus went thence, and departed into the coastes of Tyrus and Sidon.
15:22And beholde, a woman a Cananite came out of the same coasts, and cried, saying vnto him, Haue mercie on me, O Lord, the sonne of Dauid: my daughter is miserably vexed with a deuil.
15:23But hee answered her not a worde. Then came to him his disciples, and besought him, saying, Sende her away, for she crieth after vs.
15:24But he answered, and said, I am not sent, but vnto the lost sheepe of the house of Israel.
15:25Yet she came, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, helpe me.
15:26And he answered, and said, It is not good to take the childrens bread, and to cast it to whelps.
15:27But she said, Trueth, Lord: yet in deede the whelpes eate of the crommes, which fall from their masters table.
15:28Then Iesus answered, and saide vnto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it to thee, as thou desirest. And her daughter was made whole at that houre.
15:29So Iesus went away from thence, and came neere vnto the sea of Galile, and went vp into a mountaine and sate downe there.
15:30And great multitudes came vnto him, hauing with them, halt, blinde, dumme, maymed, and many other, and cast them downe at Iesus feete, and he healed them.
15:31In so much that the multitude wondered, to see the dumme speake, the maimed whole, the halt to goe, and the blinde to see: and they glorified the God of Israel.
15:32Then Iesus called his disciples vnto him, and said, I haue compassion on this multitude, because they haue continued with mee already three dayes, and haue nothing to eate: and I wil not let them depart fasting, least they faint in the way.
15:33And his disciples saide vnto him, Whence should we get so much bread in the wildernes, as should suffice so great a multitude!
15:34And Iesus said vnto them, How many loaues haue ye? And they said, Seuen, and a few litle fishes.
15:35Then he commanded the multitude to sit downe on the ground,
15:36And tooke the seuen loaues, and the fishes, and gaue thankes, and brake them, and gaue to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
15:37And they did all eate, and were sufficed: and they tooke vp of the fragments that remained, seuen baskets full.
15:38And they that had eaten, were foure thousand men, beside women, and litle children.
15:39Then Iesus sent away the multitude, and tooke ship, and came into the partes of Magdala.

Geneva Bible 1560

The Geneva Bible is one of the most historically significant translations of the Bible into English, preceding the King James translation by 51 years. It was the primary Bible of 16th century Protestantism and was the Bible used by William Shakespeare, Oliver Cromwell, John Knox, John Donne, and John Bunyan. Because the language of the Geneva Bible was more forceful and vigorous, most readers strongly preferred this version.

This version is significant because, it came with a variety of scriptural study guides and aids, which included verse citations that allow the reader to cross-reference one verse with numerous relevant verses in the rest of the Bible, introductions to each book of the Bible that acted to summarize all of the material that each book would cover, maps, tables, woodcut illustrations, indices, as well as other included features, all of which would eventually lead to the reputation of the Geneva Bible as history's very first study Bible.
