The Great Bible 1539

 

   

4:1Let vs feare therfore, lest eny of you (forsakynge the promes of entringe into hys rest) shulde seme at anye tyme to haue bene disapoynted.
4:2For vnto vs is it declared, as well as vnto them. But it proffyted not them, that they hearde the worde: because they whych hearde it, coupled it not with fayth.
4:3For we which haue beleued, do enter into his rest, as he sayde. Euen as I haue sworne in my wrath: they shall not enter into my rest. And that spake he verely longe after that the workes were made, and the foundacyon of the worlde layde.
4:4For he spake in a certayne place of the seuenth daye, on thys wyse. And God dyd rest the seuenth daye from all hys workes.
4:5And in thys place agayne: They shall not enter into my rest.
4:6Seynge therfore it foloweth, that some must enter therinto, and they (to whom it was fyrst preached) entred not therin for vnbelefes sake,
4:7he apoynteth a certayne daye after so longe a tyme sayinge in Dauid (as it is rehearsed) this daye yf ye wyll heare hys voyce, harden not your hertes.
4:8For yf Iosue had geuen them rest, then wolde he not afterwarde haue spoken of another daye.
4:9There remayneth therfore yet a rest to the people of God.
4:10For he that is entred into hys rest hath ceased also from his awne workes, as God dyd from his.
4:11Let vs study therfore to entre into that rest, lest eny man fall after the same ensample of vnbelefe.
4:12For the worde of God is quycke, and myghty in operacion, and sharper then eny two edged swearde: & entreth through, euen vnto the diuidynge a sonder of the soule and the sprete, and of the ioyntes and the mary: and is a discerner of the thoughtes and of the intentes of the herte:
4:13nether is ther eny creature that is not manifest in the syght of him: But all thinges are naked and open vnto the eyes of him, of whom we speake.
4:14Seynge then, that we haue a great hye prest which is entred into heauen (euen Iesus the sonne of God) let vs holde the profession.
4:15For we haue not an hye preste, which cannot haue compassyon on oure infirmities: but was in all poyntes tempted, lyke as we are: but yet with out synne.
4:16Let vs therfore go boldely vnto the seate of grace, that we maye obtayne mercy, and fynde grace to helpe in tyme of nede.

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."
