The Great Bible 1539



28:1Wo be vnto the crowne of pride, euen to the droncken people of Ephraim whose great pompe is as a flour that fadeth awaye vpon the head of the valleye of such as be in welth, and are ouerladen with wyne.
28:2Beholde, ther commeth a vehement and sore daye from the Lorde lyke an vnmeasurable hayle and perellous tempest, euen lyke the force of myghtye and horrible waters, that violentlye beareth downe all thinges.
28:3The crowne of the pryde of the dronken Ephraemites shalbe troden vnder fote:
28:4so that the floure of hys fayrenes and bewty, which is in the head of the valley of fatnes, shall fade awaye, as doth an vntimely rype fygg afore heruest. Which whan a man spyeth, he loketh vpon it: and whyle it is yet in his hande, he eateth it vp.
28:5In the daye shall the Lorde of hostes be the crowne of glory, & diademe of bewtye vnto the residue of his people.
28:6He wilbe also a spirite of perfyte knowledge to him that sitteth in iudgement, & strength vnto them that turne awaye the battell to the gate of the enemies.
28:7But they are out of the waye by reason of wyne: yee, farre out of the waye are they thorowe strong drynke. The preste also & the prophet are gone astraye by the meanes of strong drincke, they are dronken wt wyne, they go amisse thorowe strong drincke: they fayle in prophecying & stomble in iudgment.
28:8For tables are so full of vomyte and fylthines, that no place is cleane.
28:9Whom then shall such one teach knowledge? And whom shall he make to vnderstonde the thing that he heareth? For they are as ignoraunt as yong children, that are taken from the mylke and are weened.
28:10For they that be such must haue after one lesson, another lesson: after one commaundement, another commaundement, after one rule another rule, after one instruccion another instruccyon, there a lytle and there a lytle.
28:11For he that speaketh vnto this people is euen as one that vseth rudenes of spech, and a straunge language. Yf any man saye vnto them:
28:12lo, this is the rest wherwith ye maye ease hym that is weerye, thys is the refresshinge, they wyll not herken.
28:13Therfore, the worde of the Lorde (lesson vpon lesson, commaundement vpon commaundement, rule vpon rule, instruccyon vpon instruccion, there a lytle and there a lytle) shall be vnto them an occasyon of stombling that they maye go on, and fall backward, be brused, tangled and snared.
28:14Wherfore, heare the worde of the Lorde ye mockers, ye that haue rule of this people which is at Ierusalem.
28:15Because ye haue sayd: we haue made a couenaunt with death, & with hell are we at agrement. And though there go forth a sore plage, it shall nott come vnto vs. For we haue made falshode our refuge, and vnder vanitie are we hid.
28:16Therfore thus sayth the Lorde God: Beholde, I laye in Sion for a foundation a stone, euen a tryed stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: Whoso beleueth, let hym not be to hastye.
28:17Iudgment also will I laye to the rule, and righteousnes to the balaunce: so that the hayle shall take awaye your vayne confidence as a broome, and the preuy place of youre refuge shall the waters renne ouer.
28:18And thus the couenaunt that ye made wt death, shalbe disanulled: and your agrement that ye made with hell, shall not stand. Yee, when the sore plage goeth forth, ye shalbe troden downe vnder it. From the tyme that it goeth forth, it shall take you awaye.
28:19For early in the mornynge euery daye: yee, both daye & night shall it go thorowe: & when the noyse therof is perceaued, it shall gendre vexation.
28:20For the bed is narow, and nott large: & the couering so small that a man can not wynde him selfe vnder it.
28:21For the Lorde shall stonde as in mount Perazim, and shalbe wrothe lyke as in the valley Gibeon, that he maie do his worke, his straung worke & bring to passe his acte, his straunge acte.
28:22Now therfore se that ye be no mockers, lest your punyshment increace: for I haue heard of the Lorde of hostes, that there shall come a short ende vpon the whole earth.
28:23Heare ye then, & herken vnto my voyce, considre & pondre my spech.
28:24Doth not the husbandman plowe all the daie, and openeth & breaketh the clottes of his grounde, that he maye sowe?
28:25Whan he hath made it playn, will he not spred abrode the fitches, and sowe comyn, & cast in whete by measure, & the appoynted barlye and rye in their place?
28:26God will instructe hym to haue discretion, euen his God wyll teach hym.
28:27For fitches shall not be tresshed with an harowe: nether shall a carte whele be brought thorowe the comyn: but the fitches are beaten out with a stafe, and comyn wt a rodd.
28:28But the seede that bread is made of, is tresshed, though it be not alwaye a thresshing. And the carte whele must be brought ouer it, lest he grynde it with his teth.
28:29This also commeth of the Lorde of hoostes, which worcketh wt wonderfull wysdome, and bringeth excellent workes to passe.
The Great Bible 1539

The Great Bible 1539

The Great Bible of 1539 was the first authorized edition of the Bible in English, authorized by King Henry VIII of England to be read aloud in the church services of the Church of England. The Great Bible was prepared by Myles Coverdale, working under commission of Thomas, Lord Cromwell, Secretary to Henry VIII and Vicar General. In 1538, Cromwell directed the clergy to provide "one book of the bible of the largest volume in English, and the same set up in some convenient place within the said church that ye have care of, whereas your parishioners may most commodiously resort to the same and read it."
