The Great Bible 1539

 

   

15:1Then came to Iesus Scribes and Pharises (whyche were come from Ierusalem) saying:
15:2why do thy disciples transgresse the tradicion of the elders? for they washe not theyr handes when they eate bread.
15:3But he answered & sayde vnto them: why do ye also transgresse the commaundement of God, because of youre awne tradicion:
15:4For God commaundeth sayinge: honoure father and mother, and he that cursseth father or mother: let hym dye the deeth.
15:5But ye saye: euery one shall saye to his father and mother: what gift so euer shulde haue come of me, the same is turned vnto thy profyt: & so shall he not honoure his father or his mother.
15:6And thus haue ye made the commaundement of God of none effecte, because of youre awne tradicyon.
15:7Ypocrites, full well dyd Esaye prophesie of you, saying:
15:8This people draweth nye vnto me with theyr mouth, and honoureth me with lyppes, howbeit, their hertes are farre from me:
15:9but in vayne do they serue me; teachynge the doctrines and preceptes of men.
15:10And he called the people to him, and sayd vnto them: heare and vnderstande.
15:11That whych goeth into the mouth, defyleth not the man: but that which commeth out of the mouth, defyleth the man.
15:12Then came his disciples, and sayde vnto him: knowest thou not, that the Pharises were offended at this saying?
15:13But he answered and sayd. Euery plante which my heauenly father hath not planted, shalbe plucked vp by the rotes.
15:14Let them alone, they be the blynde leaders of the blynde. If the blynde leade the blynde, both shall fall into the dyche.
15:15Then answered Peter & sayd vnto him: declare vnto vs this parable.
15:16Iesus sayde: are ye also yet without vnderstandinge?
15:17do not ye yet vnderstande, that whatsoeuer entreth in at the mouth, goeth into the bely, & is cast out into the draught?
15:18But those thynges whych procede out of the mouth, come forth from the hert, & they defyle the man.
15:19For out of the herte proceade euill thoughtes; murders, breakynge of wedlocke, whordoms, theftes, falsewitnesse, blasphemies.
15:20These are the thinges, which defyle a man. But to take meate wt vnwasshen handes, defileth not a man.
15:21And Iesus went thence, & departed into the coastes of Tyre and Sydon
15:22& beholde, a woman of Canaan (which cam out of the same coastes) cryed vnto him, sayinge: haue mercy on me o Lorde, thou sonne of Dauid: My daughter is pyteously vexed wyth a deuyll.
15:23But he answered her nothing at all, & his disciples came, and besought him, sayinge: sende her awaye, for she crieth after vs:
15:24But he answered, & sayde: I am not sent but vnto the lost shepe of the housse of Israel
15:25Then cam she, & worshipped him, sayinge: lorde, helpe me.
15:26He answered and said: it is not mete, to take the chyldrens bread, and to cast it to dogges.
15:27She answered & sayde: truthe Lorde, for the dogges eate of the crommes, which fall from their masters table.
15:28Then Iesus answered and sayde vnto her. O woman, greate is thy faith, be it vnto the, euen as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole euen at that same tyme.
15:29And Iesus went awaye from thence, and cam nye vnto the see of Galile, & went vp into a mountayne, & sat doune there.
15:30And moche people came vnto him, bringing wt them those that were lame, blind, deafe, maymed, and other many: & cast them downe at Iesus fete And he healed them:
15:31in so moch, that the people wondered, whan they sawe the domme speake, the maymed to be whole, the lame to walke, and the blynde to se. And they glorified the God of Israel.
15:32Then Iesus called his disciples vnto him, & sayde: I haue compassyon on the people, because they continue with me nowe .iii. dayes, & haue nothing to eate: & I will not let them departe fastynge, lest they myscary by the waye.
15:33And his disciples saye vnto him whence shulde we get so moche bread in the wyldernes, as to suffyse so greate a multitude?
15:34And Iesus sayeth vnto them: howe many loaues haue ye? And they saye seuen, & a fewe lytle fysshes.
15:35And he commaunded the people to syt doune on the grounde:
15:36and toke the seuen loaues, & the fysshes: & after that he had geuen thankes, he brake them, and gaue to his disciples, & the discyples gaue them to the people.
15:37And they dyd all eate, and were suffysed. And they toke vp (of the broken meate that was lefte) seuen baskettes full.
15:38And yet, they that dyd eate were .iiii.M. men. besyde wemen & chyldren.
15:39And he sent awaye the people, and toke shyppe, & came into the parties of Magdala.

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."
