The Great Bible 1539

 

   

2:1Wherfore, we ought to geue the more ernest hede to the thynges that are spoken vnto vs, lest at any tyme we perysshe.
2:2For yf the worde whych was spoken by angells was stedfast: And euery transgressyon and disobedience receaued a iust recompence of rewarde,
2:3howe shall we escape, yf we despyse so great saluacyon, which at the fyrst began to be preached of the Lorde hym selfe, and was confirmed vnto vs warde, by them that hearde it?
2:4God bearynge wytnes therto, both with sygnes & wonders also & with diuers myracles, & gyftes of the holy gooste, accordynge to hys awne wyll.
2:5For vnto the angels hath he not subdued the worlde to come, wherof we speake,
2:6but one in a certayne place wytnessed, sayinge, What is man, that thou art myndfull of hym. Or the sonne of man, that thou visitest hym?
2:7Thou madest hym a lytle lower then the angels: thou hast crowned hym with honour & glory, and hast set hym aboue the workes of thy handes.
2:8Thou hast put all thynges in subieccyon vnder hys fete. In that he put all thynges vnder him, he left nothynge that is not put vnder him.
2:9Neuerthelesse, we se not yet all thynges subdued vnto him: but him that was made lesse then the angels, we se that it was Iesus, which is crowned with glory and honour for the sofferynge of death: that he by the grace of God, shulde tast of deeth for all men.
2:10For it became him, for whom are all thinges and by whom are all thynges (after that he had brought many sonnes vnto glory) that he shulde make the Lorde of their saluacyon perfecte thorowe affliccyons.
2:11For both he that sanctifyeth and they which are sanctyfyed, are all of one. For whych causes sake he is not a shamed to call them brethren,
2:12sayinge: I wyll declare thy name vnto my brethren, in the myddes of the congregacyon wyll I prayse the.
2:13And agayne: I wyll put my trust in hym. And agayne: beholde, here am I and the chyldren whom God hath geuen me.
2:14For as moch then as the chyldren are partetakers of flesshe and bloud, he also him selfe lykewyse toke parte with them that (thorowe deeth) he myght expell hym that had lordshyppe ouer deeth, that is to saye the deuyll,
2:15and that he myght delyuer them, which thorowe feare of deeth were all there lyfe tyme subdued vnto bondage.
2:16For he in no place taketh on hym the angels: but the seed of Abraham taketh he on hym.
2:17Wherfore, in all thynges it became hym to be made lyke vnto his brethren, that he myght be mercyfull, and a faythfull hye Preste in thynges concernynge God, for to pourge the peoples synnes.
2:18For in that it fortuned hym selfe to be tempted, he is able to sucker them also that are tempted.

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."
