16:1The Pharises also wt the Saduces, came and tempted him & desyred him that he wolde shewe them a sygne from heuen.
16:2He answered and sayde vnto them: whan it begynneth to drawe toward euen, ye saye, it wylbe fayre wether, for the skye is reed?
16:3And in the mornynge: It wylbe foule wether to daye, for the skye is glowmyng reed. O ye ypocrites, ye can discerne the outward appearaunce of the skye: but can ye not discerne the sygnes of the tymes?
16:4The frowarde & aduoutrous nacyon requyreth a sygne, and there shall no sygne be geuen vnto it, but the sygne of the Prophet Ionas. And he lefte them, and departed.
16:5And when his disciples were come to the other syde of the water, they had forgotten to take breed with them.
16:6Then Iesus sayde vnto them. Take hede and beware of the leuen of the Pharises & of the Saduces.
16:7And they thought in them selues saying: we haue taken no breed wt vs.
16:8Which whan Iesus vnderstode, he sayd vnto them: O ye of lytell faith, why take ye thought within your selues, because ye haue brought no breed?
16:9Do ye not yet perceaue, nether remember those .v. loaues, when there were .v.M. men, & how many baskettes toke ye vp?
16:10Nether the .vii. loues when there were .iiii.M. men: & how many baskettes toke ye vp?
16:11how happeneth it that ye do not vnderstande, that I spake it not vnto you concernyng breed, that ye shulde beware of the leuen of the Pharises, & of the Saduces?
16:12Then vnderstode they, how that he bad not them beware of the leuen of breed: but of the doctrine of the Pharises, and of the Saduces.
16:13When Iesus cam into the coastes of the cite which is called Cesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples sayinge whom do men saye that I the sonne of man am?
16:14They sayde: some saye that thou art Iohn Baptist, some Helyas, some Ieremias, or one of the nombre of the prophetes.
16:15He sayeth vnto them: but whom saye ye that I am?
16:16Simon Peter answered & sayde: Thou art Christ the sone of the lyuynge God.
16:17And Iesus answered, & sayde vnto hym: happy art thou Simon the sonne of Ionas, for fleshe & bloud hath not opened that vnto the but my father which is in heuen.
16:18And I saye also vnto the that thou art Peter: & vpon this rocke I wil bylde my congregacion. And the gates of hell shal not preuayle agaynst it.
16:19And I wil geue vnto the, the keyes of the kyngdom of heuen: And whatsoeuer thou byndest in erth, shall be bounde in heuen: & whatsoeuer thou loosest in erth, shalbe lowsed in heuen.
16:20Then charged he hys disciples, that they shulde tell no man, that he was Iesus Chris
16:21From that tyme forth beganne Iesus to shewe vnto his disciples, how that he must go vnto Ierusalem, & suffer many thinges of the elders, & hye Prestes, & Scribes, & must be kylled, and be raysed agayne the thyrde daye.
16:22And when Peter had taken him asyde, he began to rebuke him, saying: master, fauer thy selfe, this shal not happen vnto the:
16:23but he turned him aboute, and sayde vnto Peter: go after me Satan, thou hyndrest me: for thou sauourest not the thinges that be of God, but those that be of men.
16:24Then sayde Iesus vnto his disciples: If eny man wil folowe me, let him forsake him selfe & take vp his crosse, & folowe me
16:25For whoso wil saue his lyfe, shall loose it. Agayne, whoso doth lose his life for my sake, shall fynde it.
16:26For what doth it proffet a man, yf he wynne all the whole worlde: & lose hys awne soule? Or what shal a man geue to redeme his soule agayne with all?
16:27For the sonne of man shall come in the glory of his father, wt his angels: & then shall he rewarde euery man accordinge to his dedes.
16:28Uerely I saye vnto you, ther be stondinge here, which shall not tast of deeth, tyll they se the sonne of man come in hys kyngdome.

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."
