The Great Bible 1539



29:1Wo vnto the O Ariel Ariel thou citye that Dauid dwelt in Go on from yeare to yeare, and let the lambes be slayne.
29:2I will laye sege vnto Ariel, so that there shalbe heuynes and sorowe in it: and it shalbe vnto me euen an aultar of slaughter.
29:3I wyll besege the round about, and fight agaynst the thorowe a bulworke: and wyll reare vp diches agaynst the.
29:4Thou shalt be brought downe, & shalt speake out of the grounde, and thy spech shall go lowe out of the duste.
29:5Thy voyce also shall come out of the grounde lyke the voyce of a witch: and thy talkyng shall whisper out of the dust. Moreouer, the noyse of thy straunge enemyes shalbe lyke thynne dust, & the multitude of tyrauntes shalbe as drye strawe, that cannot tary: euen sodenly and in hayste shall theyr blast go.
29:6Thou shalt be visited of the Lorde of hostes wt thondre, erthquake, and wt a great noise: with storme and tempest and wt the flame of a consuming fyer.
29:7And the multitude of all nations that fyght agaynst Ariel, shalbe as a dreame sene by night: euen so shall all they be that make warre agaynst it, and stronge holdes to ouercome it, and that laie eny sege vnto it.
29:8In conclusion, it shalbe euen as when an hongry man dreameth that he is eating, and when he awaketh, hys soule is emptye. Or as when a thurstye man dreameth that he is drincking: and when he awaketh, he is yet faynt: and his soule lacketh the appetite. Euen so shalbe the multitude of all nations that fyght agaynst Syon.
29:9Pondre these thynges once in your myndes, & wondre. Blinded are they them selues and the blind guides of other. They are dronken: but not with wyne: they are vnstable, but not thorowe strong drincke.
29:10For the Lorde hath couered you with a slomberinge sprete, and hath closed your eyes. Your prophetes also & rulers that shuld se, them hath he couered.
29:11And the visyon of all the prophetes is become vnto you, as the wordes of a boke that is sealed vp, which men deliuer to one that is learned, saying: Reade thou in it. And he sayth: I cannot, for it is sealed.
29:12And the boke is geuen vnto him that is not learned, saying: Reade thou in it, and he sayth: I am not learned.
29:13Therfore thus hath the Lorde sayde: For somoche as this people when they be in trouble, do honour me with their mouth & wt their lippes: but their hert is far fro me, & the feare which they haue vnto me, proceadeth of a commaundment that is taught of men.
29:14Therfore wyll I do maruayls amonge this people, euen maruelous thinges (I saye) & a wonder. For the wysdome of their wise men shall perysh, & the vnderstanding of their wittye men shall hyd it selfe.
29:15Wo vnto them that kepe secrete their thoughtes, to hyde their councell from the Lorde, and do their workes in darknesse, sayinge: who seeth vs? & who knoweth vs?
29:16Doutles, your destruccion is (in my handes) in reputacyon as the potters claye. And doth the worcke saye of hym that made it, he made not me? And doth an earthen vessell saye of him that fasshyoned it, he had no vnderstandinge?
29:17Is it not hard at hande, that Lybanus shalbe turned into a lowe felde, and that the lowe felde shalbe taken as the wodd?
29:18And in that daye shall deaffe men heare the wordes of the boke, and the eyes of the blinde shall se euen out of the cloud and out of darcknes.
29:19The meke spreted also shalbe mery in the Lorde, and the poore amonge them that be lowly, shall reioyce in the holy one of Israel.
29:20For he that dyd violence, is brought to naught, and the scornefull man is consumed: and they roted out that were hastie so soone to vnryghteousnes,
29:21makynge a man to synne in the worde, and that toke hym in a snare which reproued them in the open place: and they that haue turned the cause of the ryghteous to naught.
29:22Therfore thus sayth the Lorde vnto the house of Iacob, euen thus sayeth he that redemed Abraham: Iacob shall not nowe be confounded, ner his face pale.
29:23But when he seeth hys chyldren the worcke of my handes in the middes of him, they shall sanctifie my name, and prayse the holy Lord of Iacob, and feare the God of Israel.
29:24They also that haue bene of an erronyouse sprete, shall come to vnderstandyng: and they that haue bene scornefull, shall learne doctryne.

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."
