Geneva Bible 1560

 

   

18:1The same time the disciples came vnto Iesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdome of heauen?
18:2And Iesus called a litle childe vnto him, and set him in the mids of them,
18:3And sayd, Verely I say vnto you, except ye be conuerted, and become as litle children, ye shall not enter into the kingdome of heauen.
18:4Whosoeuer therefore shall humble himselfe as this litle childe, the same is the greatest in the kingdome of heauen.
18:5And whosoeuer shall receiue one such litle childe in my name, receiueth me.
18:6But whosoeuer shall offend one of these litle ones which beleeue in me, it were better for him, that a milstone were hanged about his necke, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
18:7Wo be vnto the world because of offences: for it must needes be that offences shall come, but wo be to that man by whome the offence commeth.
18:8Wherefore, if thy hand or thy foote cause thee to offend, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life, halt, or maimed, then hauing two hands, or two feete, to be cast into euerlasting fire.
18:9And if thine eye cause thee to offende, plucke it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, then hauing two eyes to be cast into hell fire.
18:10See that ye despise not one of these litle ones: for I say vnto you, that in heauen their Angels alwayes behold the face of my Father which is in heauen.
18:11For the Sonne of man is come to saue that which was lost.
18:12How thinke ye? If a man haue an hundreth sheepe, and one of them be gone astray, doeth he not leaue ninetie and nine, and go into the mountaines, and seeke that which is gone astray?
18:13And if so be that he finde it, verely I say vnto you, he reioyceth more of that sheepe, then of the ninetie and nine which went not astray:
18:14So is it not ye wil of your Father which is in heauen, that one of these litle ones should perish.
18:15Moreouer, if thy brother trespasse against thee, goe and tell him his fault betweene thee and him alone: if he heare thee, thou hast wonne thy brother.
18:16But if he heare thee not, take yet with thee one or two, that by the mouth of two or three witnesses euery worde may be confirmed.
18:17And if he refuse to heare them, tell it vnto the Church: and if he refuse to heare the Church also, let him be vnto thee as an heathen man, and a Publicane.
18:18Verely I say vnto you, Whatsoeuer ye bind on earth, shall be bound in heauen: and whatsoeuer ye loose on earth, shalbe loosed in heauen.
18:19Againe, verely I say vnto you, that if two of you shall agree in earth vpon any thing, whatsoeuer they shall desire, it shall be giuen them of my Father which is in heauen.
18:20For where two or three are gathered together in my Name, there am I in the mids of them.
18:21Then came Peter to him, and said, Master, howe oft shall my brother sinne against me, and I shall forgiue him? vnto seuen times?
18:22Iesus said vnto him, I say not to thee, Vnto seuen times, but, Vnto seuentie times seuen times.
18:23Therefore is the kingdome of heauen likened vnto a certaine King, which would take an account of his seruants.
18:24And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought vnto him, which ought him ten thousand talents.
18:25And because he had nothing to pay, his Lord commanded him to be solde, and his wife, and his children, and all that he had, and the dette to be payed.
18:26The seruant therefore fell downe, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, refraine thine anger toward me, and I will pay thee all.
18:27Then that seruants Lord had compassion, and loosed him, and forgaue him the dette.
18:28But when the seruant was departed, hee found one of his felow seruants, which ought him an hundred pence, and he layde hands on him, and thratled him, saying, Pay me that thou owest.
18:29Then his fellow seruant fell downe at his feete, and besought him, saying, Refraine thine anger towards me, and I will pay thee all.
18:30Yet he would not, but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the dette.
18:31And when his other felowe seruants sawe what was done, they were very sory, and came, and declared vnto their Lord all that was done.
18:32Then his Lord called him vnto him, and sayd to him, O euil seruant, I forgaue thee all that dette, because thou prayedst me.
18:33Oughtest not thou also to haue had pitie on thy fellowe seruant, euen as I had pitie on thee?
18:34So his Lord was wroth, and deliuered him to the tormentours, till he should pay all that was due to him.
18:35So likewise shall mine heauenly Father doe vnto you, except ye forgiue from your hearts, eche one to his brother their trespasses.

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.
