The Great Bible 1539



58:1Crye nowe, as loude as thou canst. Leaue not of, lyft vp thy voyce lyke a trompet, & shewe my people theyr offences, & the house of Iacob their synnes.
58:2For they seke me daylye, & wyll knowe my wayes, euen as it were a people that dyd ryght, and had not forsaken the statutes of theyr God. They argue wyth me concernynge ryght iudgement, and will be nye vnto God.
58:3Wherfore fast we (saye they) and thou seest it not? we put out lyues to straytenes, and thou regardest it not?
58:4Beholde, when ye fast, youre lust remayneth styll: for ye do no lesse vyolence to your detters: lo, ye fast to stryfe and debate, & to smyte with youre fyst without mercy. Now ye shall not fast thus that your voyce myght be hearde aboue.
58:5Thyncke ye this fast pleaseth me, that a man shulde chasten him selfe for a daye, and to wrythe his head aboute lyke an hoope, & to lye vpon the earth in an heary cloth? Shulde that be called fastynge, or a daye that pleaseth the Lorde?
58:6Doth not this fastynge rather please me, that thou loose him out of bondage, that is in thy daunger: that thou breake the ooth of wycked bargaynes, that thou lett the oppressed go fre, and take from them all maner of burthens:
58:7to deale thy bread to the hongry, & bringe the poore wandringe, home into thy house, when thou seest the naked that thou couer him, and hyde not thy face from thy neyghboure.
58:8Then shall thy lyght breake forth as the mornyng, & thy health floryshe ryght shortly: thy righteousnesse shall go before the, and the glory of the Lorde shall embrace the.
58:9Then yf thou callest, the Lorde shall answere the: yf thou cryest, he shall saye: here I am. Yee, yf thou layest awaye from the thy burthens, and holdest thy fingers, & ceasest from blasphemous talkinge,
58:10yf thou hast compassyon vpon the hongrye, & refreshest the troubled soule: Then shall thy lyght sprynge out in the darcknesse, & thy darcknesse shalbe as the noone day.
58:11The lord shall euer be thy guyd, & satisfie the desyre of thyne herte in the tyme of drougthe, & fyll thy bones wt mary. Thou shalt be lyke a fresh waterd garden & lyke the fountayne of water, that neuer leaueth runnynge.
58:12Then the places that haue euer bene waste, shalbe builded of the: there shalt thou laye a foundacion for many kynredes. Thou shalt be called the maker vp of hedges, & the buylder agayne of the waye of the Sabboth.
58:13Yee, yf thou turne thy fete in the Sabbath, so that thou do not the thynge which pleaseth thy self in my holy daye: & thou call the pleasaunt, holy, and glorious Sabbath of the Lorde, and that thou gyue him the hononoure: so that thou do not after thyne awne ymagination, nether seke thyne awne wyll, ner speake thyne awne wordes.
58:14Then shalt thou haue thy pleasure in the Lord, and I wyll carye the hye aboue the earth, and fede the wyth the herytage of Iacob thy father: for the Lordes awne mouth hath so promysed.
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."
