The Great Bible 1539



8:1Moreouer, the lord sayd vnto me: Take the a greate leaf, & write in it, as men do wt a penne, make hastye spede to robbe, & haste to the spoyle.
8:2And I called vnto me faythfull witnesses to recorde. Uryah the prest, & Zachariah the sonne of Barachiah.
8:3After that went I vnto the Prophetisse, that had conceaued & borne a sonne. Then sayde the Lorde to me: geue him this name: a spedie robber: an hastie spoiler.
8:4For why, or ouer the chylde shal haue knowledge to crye father, & mother: shall the ryches of Damascus & the substaunce of Samaria be taken awaye by the spoyler, before the kyng of the Assirians.
8:5The Lorde spake also vnto me, sayinge:
8:6for so moch as thys people refuseth the still rennynge water of Sylo, and put theyr delyte in Razin & Romelies sonne:
8:7Behold, the Lorde shall brynge myghtie & greate floudes of water vpon them: namely, the kynge of the Assirians with all his power: Which shall clyme vp vpon all his floudes, and renne ouer all theyr banckes.
8:8And shal breake in vpon Iuda, flowinge & increasing in power, tyll he gett him by the neck. He shall fyll also the widenesse of thy lande with hys brode winges, O Emanuel.
8:9Breake downe (o ye peple of Assur) and ye shall be, broken downe: herken to all ye of farre countrees. Muster you, and you shalbe broken downe, prepare you to batell and you shall be torne in peces:
8:10take your councell together, yet must your councel come to naught: go in hande withall, yet shall it not prospere: for God is with vs.
8:11For the Lord spake thus to me in the powre of his hande, & warned me, sayinge vnto me: that I shulde not walcke in the waye of this people. He sayde moreouer:
8:12rounde with none of them, whosoeuer saye: yonder people are bounde together: feare them not, nether be afrayd of them,
8:13but sanctifie the Lord of Hostes, lett hym be youre feare and drede.
8:14For he shall be the holy place to flye to, and stone to stomble at: the rock to fall vpon: a snare and net to both the houses of Israel, and the inhabitours of Ierusalem.
8:15And many shall stomble, fall, and be broken vpon hym: yee, they shalbe snared & taken.
8:16Now laye the witnesses together & seale the lawe wt my disciples.
8:17Thus wil I wayte vpon the Lorde that hath turned his face from the house of Iacob, and I will loke for him.
8:18But lo, as for me, and the children which the lord hath geuen me: we are a token and a wondre in Israel, for the Lord of Hostes sake, which dwelleth vpon the hyll of Sion.
8:19And yf they saye vnto you: aske councell at the sothesayers, witches, charmers and coniurers, then make them thys answere. Is there a people eny where, that asketh not councell at his God? Shulde men renne vnto the dead for the lyuynge?
8:20If eny man want lyght, leet hym loke vpon the lawe, and the testimony, whether they speake not after this meaning.
8:21If he do not thys, he stombleth and suffreth hunger. And yf he suffre hunger he is out of pacience, and blasphemeth his kyng & his God. Then loketh he vp warde, & downe warde to the earth,
8:22& beholde, there is trouble and darckenesse, vexacion is rounde aboute hym, and the cloude of erroure. And out of soch aduersite, shal he not escape.

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."
