The Great Bible 1539

 

   

5:1Stande fast therfore in the liberty wherwith Christ hath made vs fre, and wrappe not youre selues agayne in the yoke of bondage.
5:2Beholde, I Paul saye vnto you, that yf ye be circumcised, Christ shall proffyte you nothynge at all.
5:3I testyfye agayne to euery man which is circumcised, that he is bonde to kepe the whole lawe.
5:4Christ is become but in vayne vnto you. As many of you as are iustifyed by the lawe are fallen from grace.
5:5We loke for, and hope in the sprete to be iustifyed thorowe fayth.
5:6For in Iesu Christ, nether is circumcisyon any thynge worth, nether yet vncircumcysion but faith which worketh by loue.
5:7Ye dyd runne well: who was a let vnto you, that ye shulde not beleue the trueth?
5:8Euen the counsell which came not of hym that calleth you.
5:9A lytell leuen doth leuen the whole lompe of dowe.
5:10I haue trust towarde you in the Lorde, that ye shalbe none otherwyse minded. But he that troubleth you, shall beare his iudgement whatsoeuer he be.
5:11Brethren, yf I yet preach circumcisyon, why do I then yet suffre persecucyon? Then is the slaunder of the crosse ceased.
5:12I wolde to God, they were separated from you, which trouble you:
5:13Brethren, ye were called into libertye: only let not youre libertye be an occasion vnto the flesshe: but by loue serue one another.
5:14For all the lawe is fulfylled in one worde, which is this: thou shalt loue thyne neyghboure as thy selfe.
5:15If ye byte and deuoure one another: take hede, lest ye be lykewyse consumed one of another.
5:16I saye: walke in the sprete, and fulfyll not the lust of the flesshe.
5:17For the flesshe lusteth contrary to the sprete, and the sprete contrary to the flesshe. These are contrarye one to the other, so that ye cannot do whatsoeuer ye wolde.
5:18But and yf ye be led of the sprete, then are ye not vnder the lawe.
5:19The dedes of the flesshe are manyfeste, which are these: aduoutery, fornicacion, vnclennes, wantannes,
5:20worshypping of ymages, witchcraft, hatred, variaunce, zele, wrathe, stryfe, sedicyons, sectes,
5:21enuyinge, murther, dronkennes, glottonye, and soche lyke: of the which I tell you before as I haue told you in tyme past, that they which commyt soch thinges shall not be inheritours of the kyngdome of God.
5:22Contrarely, the frute of the sprete is, loue, ioye, peace, longe sufferinge, gentylnes, goodnes, faythfulnes,
5:23mekenes, temperauncye. Agaynst suche there is no lawe.
5:24They trulye that are Christes, haue crucifyed the flesshe with the affeccions and lustes.
5:25If we lyue in the sprete, let vs walke in the sprete.
5:26Let vs not be desirous of vayne glorye, prouokinge one another, enuying one another.

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."
