The Great Bible 1539

 

   

13:1The same daye went Iesus out of the house, and sat by the see syde,
13:2and moche people were gathered together vnto him, so gretly that he went, and sat in a shippe, and all the people stode on the shore.
13:3And he spake many thynges to them by similitudes, sayinge: Beholde, the sower went forth to sowe.
13:4And whan he sowed, some sedes fell by the wayes syde, and the fowles came, and deuoured them vp.
13:5Some fell vpon stony places, where they had not moche erth, and anone they spronge vp, because they had no depnesse of erth:
13:6and when the sonne was vp, they caught heat, & because they had no rote, they wyddred awaye.
13:7Agayne, some fell amonge thornes, and the thornes spronge vp and choaked them.
13:8But some fell into good ground, & brought forth frute: some an hundred folde, some syxtie folde, some thyrtie folde.
13:9Whosoeuer hath eares to heare, let him heare.
13:10And the disciples came, & sayde vnto him? Why speakest thou to them by parables?
13:11He answered and sayde vnto them: it is geuen vnto you to knowe the secretes of the kyngdome of heauen, but to them it is not geuen.
13:12For whosoeuer hath, to him shall be geuen: and he shall haue aboundaunce. But whosoeuer hath not: from him shalbe taken awaye euen that also which he hath.
13:13Therfore speake I to them by similitude: for they seinge, se not: and hearinge, they heare not: nother do they vnderstand.
13:14And in them is fulfylled the prophecie of Esaias, which sayth: with the eares ye shall heare, and shall not vnderstand and seinge ye shall se, and shall not perceaue.
13:15For these peoples hertes is wexed grosse, and their eares are dull of hearynge, and theyr eyes haue they closed, lest at any tyme they shuld se with their eyes, and heare with their eares, & shuld understand with their herte, & be conuerted, that I also myght heale them.
13:16But blessed are youre eyes, for they se: & youre eares, for they heare.
13:17Uerely I saye vnto you, that many prophetes & righteous men haue desyred to se those thinges which ye se, & haue not sene them: & to heare those thinges which ye heare, and haue not hearde them.
13:18Heare ye therfore the similitude of the sower.
13:19Whan one heareth the word of the kingdome, & understandeth it not, then commeth the euyll man, & taketh awaye that which was sowen in hys hert: thys is he, which was sowne by the waye syde.
13:20But he that receaued the sede which was cast into stony places, the same is he that heareth the worde, and anone with ioye receaueth it,
13:21yet hath he no rote in hym selfe, but dureth for a season: for whan tribulacyon or persecucyon happeneth because of the worde, by and by he falleth.
13:22He also that receaued sede into the thornes, is he that heareth the worde: and the care of this worlde, and the dissaytfulnes of ryches, choke vp the worde, and so is he made vnfrutefull.
13:23But he that receaued sede into the good ground is he that heareth the worde, and vnderstandeth it: which also beareth frute, & bringeth forth, some an hundred folde, some syxtie folde, some thyrtye folde.
13:24Another similitude put he forth vnto them, sayinge: The kyngdome of heauen is lykened vnto a man, which sowed good seed in his felde.
13:25But whyll men slept, his enemie came, & sowed tares among the wheate, & went his waye.
13:26But when the blade was sprong vp, and had brought forth frute, there appeared the tares also.
13:27So the seruauntes of the housholder came, and sayde vnto him. Syr, dyddest not thou sowe good seed in thy felde? from whence then hath it tares?
13:28He sayde vnto them, the enuious man hath done this. The seruauntes sayde vnto him: wylt thou then that we go, and wede them vp?
13:29But he sayde, nay, lest while ye gather vp the tares ye plucke vp also the wheate with them,
13:30let bothe growe together vntill the haruest, and in tyme of haruest, I wyll saye to the repers gather ye fyrst the tares, and bynde them together in sheues to be brent: but gather the wheate into my barne.
13:31Another parable put he forth vnto them, sayinge. The kyngdome of heauen is lyke to a grayne of mustard seed, which a man toke & sowed in his felde,
13:32which is the leest of all seedes. But when it is growne, it is the greatest among herbes, and is a tree: so that the byrdes of the ayer come, and make theyr nestes in the braunches therof.
13:33Another similitude spake he vnto them: The kyngdom of heauen is lyke vnto leuen, which a woman taketh and hydeth in thre peckes of meale, tyll all be leuened.
13:34All these thinges spake Iesus vnto the people by similitudes, & with out a parable spake he nothynge vnto them,
13:35that it myght be fulfylled, which was spoken by the prophet, that sayth I will open my mouth in parables: I wyll speake forth thynges which haue bene kepte secrete from the begynning of the world.
13:36When the people were sent awaye, then came Iesus into the house. And his disciples came vnto him, saying: declare vnto vs the parable of the tares of the felde.
13:37He answered and sayd vnto them. He that soweth the good seed, is the sonne of man.
13:38The feld is the worlde. And the chyldren of the kyngdome, they are the good seed: the tares are the chyldren of the wycked:
13:39the enemie that soweth them, is the deuyll. The haruest is the ende of the worlde: the reapers be the Angels.
13:40Euen as the tares therfore, are gathered & brent in the fyre: so shall it be in the ende of this worlde.
13:41The sonne of man shall sende forth his Angels, & they shall gather out of his kyngdome all thinges that offende, and them which do iniquite:
13:42and shall cast them into a furnes of fyre. There shalbe waylinge & gnasshyng of teth.
13:43Then shall the righteous shine as the Sonne in the kyngdom of their father. Whosoeuer hath eares to heare, let him heare.
13:44Agayne, the kyngdom of heauen is lyke vnto treasure hid in the felde, the which a man hath found and hydd: and for ioye therof goeth & selleth all that he hath, & byeth the felde.
13:45Agayne, the kyngdome of heauen is lyke vnto a marchaunt man, sekyng goodly pearles,
13:46which (when he found one precious pearle) went & solde all that he had, & bought it.
13:47Agayne, the kyngdom of heauen is lyke vnto a nett, that was cast into the see & geathered of all kynde
13:48which when it was full men drewe to land, & sat downe & geathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad awaye.
13:49So shall it be at the ende of the worlde. The angelles shall come & seuer the bad from amonge the good,
13:50& shall cast them into a furnace of fyre: there shalbe wayling & gnasshing of teth.
13:51Iesus saieth vnto them: haue ye vnderstande all these thinges? They saye vnto him: ye Lorde.
13:52Then sayde he vnto them. Therfore euery Scribe which is taught vnto the kyngedome of heauen, is lyke vnto a man that is an housholder, which bryngeth forth out of his treasure, thinges newe and olde.
13:53And it came to passe that when Iesus had finisshed these similitudes, he departed thence:
13:54And whan he came into his awne countre, he taught them in their synagoges, in so moch, that they were astonnied and sayde: whence commeth this wysdome and powers vnto to him?
13:55is not this the carpenters sonne? Is not hys mother called Mary? and hys brethren, Iames and Ioses and Simon and Iudas?
13:56And are not all his systers with vs? Whence hath he then all these thynges?
13:57And they were offended at hym. Iesus sayde vnto them: A prophete is not without honoure, saue in his awne countre, and in hys awne house.
13:58And he did not not many miracles there, because of theyr vnbelefe.
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."
