The Great Bible 1539

 

   

3:1Therfore holy brethren, partakers of the celestiall callynge consyder the ambassadour and hye preste of oure professyon Christ Iesus,
3:2howe that he is faythfull vnto hym that put hym in the offyce, euen as was Moses in all his house.
3:3For loke howe moche honoure he (that hath buylded a house) hath more then the house it selfe, so moch honour is he counted worthy of more then Moses.
3:4For euery house is buylded of some man. But he that ordeyned all thynges, is God.
3:5And Moses verely was faythfull in all hys house, as a minyster, to beare witnes of those thynges which were to be spoken afterwarde.
3:6But Christ as a sonne, hath rule ouer the house, whose house are we, yf we holde fast the confydence and the reioysynge of that hope, vnto the ende.
3:7Wherfore (as the holy goost sayth:) to daye yf ye wyll heare hys voyce,
3:8harden not youre hertes, as in the prouokynge, in the daye of temptacyon in the wyldernes,
3:9where youre fathers tempted me, proued me, and sawe my workes .xl. yeare.
3:10Wherfore I was greued with the generacyon, and sayde: They do all waye erre in their hertes: they verely haue not knowen my wayes,
3:11so that I sware in my wrath: they shall not enter into my rest.
3:12Take hede brethren, lest at anye tyme ther be in anye of you a frowarde herte subiect vnto vnbelefe, that he shulde departe from the lyuynge God:
3:13but exhorte ye one another dayly, while it is called to daye: lest eny of you wexe harde harted thorowe the deceytfulnesse of synne.
3:14We are made partetakers of Christ, yf we kepe sure (vnto the ende) the begynnynge of the substance,
3:15so longe as it is sayde: to daye yf ye wyll heare hys voyce, harden not youre hertes, as in the prouokynge,
3:16for some when they hearde dyd prouoke: howe be it not all the came out of Egypt by Moses.
3:17But with whom was he despleased .xl. yeares? Was he not despleased with them that had synned, whose carkases were ouerthrowen in the desert?
3:18To whom sware he that they shulde not enter into his rest, but vnto them that were not obedient?
3:19And we se, that they coulde not enter in, because of vnbelefe:

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."
