20:1For the kyngdom of heauen is lyke vnto a man that is an housholder, whych went out early in the mornyng to hyer labourers into hys vyneyard.
20:2And whan the agrement was made wyth the labourers for a peny a daye, he sent them into hys vineyarde.
20:3And he went out about the thirde houre, & sawe other standyng ydell in the market place,
20:4& sayde vnto them: go ye also into the vineyarde: & whatsoeuer is ryght, I wyll geue you. And they went theyr waye.
20:5Agayne, he went out about the syxte & nynthe houre, & dyd lykewyse.
20:6And aboute the eleuenth houre he went out, & founde other standynge ydell, & sayd vnto them: Why stande ye here all the daye ydell?
20:7They saye vnto hym because no man hath hyred vs. He sayeth vnto them: go ye also into the vineyarde: & whatsoeuer is ryght, that shall ye receaue.
20:8So, when euen was come, the Lord of the vineyarde sayeth vnto his steward: call the labourers, & geue them their hyer, begynnyng at the laste vntill the fyrst.
20:9And whan they dyd come, that cam about the eleuenth houre, they receaued euery man a peny.
20:10But whan the fyrst came also, they supposed that they shuld haue receaued more, & they lykewyse receaued euery man a peny.
20:11And when they had receaued it, they murmured agaynst the good man of the house,
20:12sayinge: These last haue wrought but one houre, & thou hast made them equall vnto vs, which haue borne the burthen & heat of the day.
20:13But he answered vnto one of them & sayde: frende, I do the no wronge: dydest thou not agre wt me for a penny?
20:14Take that thine is & go thy waye: I wyll geue vnto thys last, euen as vnto the.
20:15Is it not lawfull for me to do as me lysteth wt myne awne goodes? Is thyne eye euyll, because I am good?
20:16So the last shalbe fyrst, & the fyrste shalbe last. For many be called, but fewe be chosen.
20:17And Iesus going vp to Ierusalem, toke the .xij. disciples asyde in the waye, & sayd vnto them:
20:18Beholde, we go vp to Ierusalem, & the sonne of man shalbe betrayed vnto the chefe Prestes, & vnto the Scribes, & they shall condemne hym to deeth,
20:19& shall delyuer hym to the gentyls, to be mocked and to be scourged, and to be crucifyed: and the thyrde daye he shall ryse agayne.
20:20Then came to him the mother of Zebedes chyldren, wt her sonnes, worshyppyng him & desyryng a certaine thynge of him.
20:21And he sayeth vnto her, what wilt thou? She sayde vnto him: Graunte, that these my two sonnes may syt, the one on thy ryght hande, and the other on the lefte, in thy kyngdome.
20:22But Iesus answered & sayde: Ye wot not what ye aske. Are ye able to dryncke of that cuppe that I shall drynke of: & to be baptised wt the baptyme, that I am baptised wt?
20:23They saye vnto him: we are. He sayde vnto them: ye shall dryncke in dede of my cup: & be baptised wt the baptyme that I am baptised with. But to syt on my ryght hande & on my left, is not myne to geue: but it shall chaunce vnto them, that it is prepared for of my father.
20:24And when the ten heard this, they disdayned at the two brethren:
20:25But Iesus called them vnto him, & sayde: ye knowe that the princes of the nacions haue dominion ouer them. And they that are great men, exercyse auctorite vpon them.
20:26It shall not be so amonge you. But whosoeuer wyll be greate amonge you, let him be youre minister:
20:27and whoso will be chefe amonge you, let him be youre seruaunt:
20:28euen as the sonne of man cam, not to be ministred vnto, but to minister, & to geue his lyfe a redempcion for many.
20:29And as they departed from Hiericho, moch people folowed him.
20:30And beholde, two blynd men sittinge by the waysyde, when they hearde that Iesus passed by, they cried sayinge: O lord thou sonne of Dauid, haue mercy on vs.
20:31And the people rebuked them, because they shulde holde their peace. But they cried the more sayinge: haue mercy on vs. O Lord thou sonne of Dauid.
20:32And Iesus stode still, and called them, & sayde: what wyll ye that I shall do vnto you:
20:33They saye vnto him: Lorde, that oure eyes maye be opened:
20:34So Iesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes, & immediatly their eyes receaued syght. And they folowed him.

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."
