11:1And it came to passe, that when Iesus had made an ende of commaunding his twelue disciples he departed thence, to teache and to preache in theyr cyties,
11:2When Iohn beynge in preson hearde the workes of Christ, he sent two of hys dyscyples,
11:3& sayde vnto hym: Art thou he that shall come: or do we loke for another.
11:4Iesus answered and sayd vnto them: Go, and shewe Iohn agayne, what ye haue heard and sene.
11:5The blynd receaue their sight: the lame walke, the lepers are clensed: and the deef heare, the deed are raysed vp, & the poore receaue the glad tidinges of the gospell.
11:6And happy is he, that is not offended by me.
11:7And as they departed, Iesus beganne to saye vnto the people concerning Iohn. What went ye out into the wyldernes to se? A rede that is shaken with the wynde?
11:8Or what went ye out for to se? A man clothed in softe rayment? Beholde: they that weare softe clothing: are in kinges houses.
11:9But what went ye out for to se? A prophete: Uerely I saye vnto you: and more then a Prophete.
11:10For this is he, of whom it is wrytten. Beholde, I sende my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy waye before the.
11:11Uerely I saye vnto you: amonge them that are borne of wemen, arose not a greater then Iohn the Baptist. Not withstandinge he that is lesse: in the Kyngdome of heauen is gretter then he.
11:12From the dayes of Iohn Baptist vntill this daye, the kyngedom of heuen suffreth violence, and the violent plucke it vnto them.
11:13For all the prophetes, and the lawe it selfe prophesied vnto Iohn.
11:14And yf ye wyll receaue it this is Helias, which was for to come.
11:15He that hath eares to heare: let hym heare.
11:16But wher vnto shall I lyken thys generacion? It is like vnto chyldren, which syt in the market places, and call vnto their felowes,
11:17and saye: we haue pyped vnto you, and ye haue not daunsed: We haue mourned vnto you & ye haue not sorowed.
11:18For Iohn came nether eatynge nor drynkynge, & they saye, he hath the deuyll.
11:19The sonne of man came eatyng and drynckyng, and they saye, beholde a glutton, & an vnmeasurable dryncker of wyne: and a frende vnto publicans and synners. And wisdome is iustifyed of her chyldren.
11:20Then began he to vpbrayd the cyties which most of hys miracles were done in, because they repented not of their synnes.
11:21Wo vnto the Chorasin: Wo vnto the Bethsaida: for yf the miracles which were shewed in you, had bene done in the cytie of Tyre or Sidon, they had repented of their synnes longe agon in sack cloth and asshes.
11:22Neuerthelesse I saye vnto you: it shall be easier for Tyre & Sidon at the daye of iudgement, then for you.
11:23And thou Capernaum, which art lyft vp vnto heuen, shalt be brought downe to hell. For yf the miracles which haue bene done in the, had bene shewed in Zodom: they had remayned vntill this daye.
11:24Neuerthelesse, I saye vnto you: that it shalbe easier for the land of Zodom in the daye of iudgement, then for the.
11:25At that tyme Iesus answered and sayde: I thanke the O father, Lord of heauen & erth, because thou hast hid these thinges from the wyse and prudent, and hast shewed them vnto babes,
11:26verely father, euen so was it thy good pleasure.
11:27All thinges are geuen ouer vnto me of my father. And noman knoweth the sonne but the father: nether knoweth eny man the father, saue the sonne, and he to whomsoeuer the sonne will open him.
11:28Come vnto me all ye that laboure: and are laden, and I will ease you.
11:29Take my yock vpon you, and lerne of me, for I am meke & lowly in herte: and ye shall fynde rest vnto youre soules.
11:30For my yocke is easy, and my burden is light.

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."
