10:1And whan his .xij. disciples were called vnto him, he gaue them power agaynst vncleane spretes, to cast them out, and to heale all maner of syckenesse, and all maner of dysease.
10:2The names of the .xij. Apostles are these The fyrst, Symon which is called Peter: and Andrew his brother: Iames the sonne of Zebedee, and Iohn his brother:
10:3Philip & Bartholomew: Thomas and Mathew, which had bene a Publican. Iames the sonne of Alphe, and Lebbeus (whose syrname was Taddeus)
10:4Simon of Canaan, and Iudas Iscarioth, which also be traied him.
10:5Iesus sent forth these twelue in nombre, whom he commaunded, saying. Go not into the waye of the gentyls, and into the cytie of the Samaritans enter ye not.
10:6But goo rather to the lost shepe of the house of Israell.
10:7Go and preache, saying: The kyngdome of heauen is at hand.
10:8Heale the sycke, clense the lepers, rayse the deed, cast out deuyls. Frely ye haue receaued: geue frely.
10:9Possesse not golde nor syluer nor brasse in youre purses,
10:10nor yet scrip towardes your iorney: nether two cotes, nether shoes, nor yet a rodde. For the worckman is worthy of his meate.
10:11But to whatsoeuer cytie or towne ye shall come, enquyre who is worthy in it, and there abyde tyll ye go thence.
10:12And when ye come into an house, salute the same.
10:13And yf the house be worthy, let youre peace come vpon it. But yf it be not worthy, let youre peace retourne to you agayne.
10:14And whosoeuer shall not receaue you, nor wyll heare youre preachynge: when ye departe oute of that house or that cytie shake of the duste of youre fete.
10:15Uerely I saye vnto you: it shalbe easier for the land of Zodoma and Gomorra in the daye of iudgement, then for that cytie.
10:16Beholde, I sende you forth, as shepe among wolues. Be ye therfore wyse as serpentes and innocent as doues.
10:17But beware of men, for they shall delyuer you vp to the councels, and shall scourge you in their synagoges.
10:18And ye shall be brought to the heed rulers, and kynges, for my sake, in wytnes to them and to the gentyls.
10:19But when they delyuer you vp, take ye no thought, how or what ye shall speake: for it shalbe geuen you, euen in that same houre what ye shall speake.
10:20For it is not ye that speke, but the spryte of youre father which speaketh in yon.
10:21The brother shall delyuer vp the brother to deeth, & the father the sonne. And the children shal aryse agaynst their fathers and mothers, and shall put them to deeth:
10:22& ye shalbe hated of all men for my name sake. But he that endureth to the ende, shalbe saued.
10:23But when they persecute you in this cytie, flye ye into another. For verely I saye vnto you: ye shall not go thorowe all the cyties of Israell tyll the sonne of man be come.
10:24The disciple is not aboue the master: nor the seruaunt aboue his Lord.
10:25It is ynough for the disciple, that he be as his master is, and that the seruaunt be as his Lorde is. If they haue called the Lord of the house, Beelzebub: how moche more shal they call them of his householde so?
10:26Feare them not therfore. For there is nothing closse, that shall not be opened: and nothynge hyd, that shall not be knowen.
10:27What I tel you in darknes, that speake ye in lyght. And what ye heare in the eare, that preache ye on the house toppes.
10:28And feare ye not them which kyll the body but are not able to kyll the soule. But rather feare him, which is able to destroye both soule and body into hell.
10:29Are not two lytle sparowes sold for a farthyng? And one of them shall not lyght on the grounde with out youre father.
10:30Yee, euen al the heares of your head are nombred.
10:31Feare ye not therfore: ye are of more value then many sparowes.
10:32Euery one therfore that shall knowledge me before men, him will I knowledge also before my father which is in heauen.
10:33But whosoeuer shall denye me before men him will I also denye before my father, which is in heauen.
10:34Thinke not that I am come to sende peace into the erth. I came not to send peace, but a sweard.
10:35For I am come to set a man at variaunce agaynst his father, & the daughter agaynst her mother, & the daughter in lawe agaynst her mother in lawe.
10:36And a mannes foes shalbe they that are of his awne houshold.
10:37He that loueth father, or mother more then me, is not worthy of me. And he that loueth sonne or daughter more then me, is not worthy of me.
10:38And he that taketh not hys crosse and foloweth me, is not worthy of me
10:39He that fyndeth his lyfe, shall lose it: and he that losyth his lyfe for my sake, shall fynde it.
10:40He that receaueth you, receaueth me: & he that receaueth me, receaueth him that sent me.
10:41He that receaueth a prophet in the name of a prophet, shal receaue a prophetes rewarde. And he that receaueth a ryghteous man, in the name of a ryghteous man, shall receaue a righteous mans rewarde:
10:42And whosoeuer shall geue vnto one of these lytle ones to dryncke, a cuppe of colde water onely (in the name of a disciple) verely I saye vnyou, he shall not lose his rewarde.

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."
