King James Bible 1611

 

   

39:1And Ioseph was brought downe to Egypt, and Potiphar an Officer of Pharaoh, captaine of ye guard, an Egyptian, bought him of the hand of the Ishmeelites, which had brought him downe thither.
39:2And the LORD was with Ioseph, and hee was a prosperous man, and hee was in the house of his master the Egyptian.
39:3And his master sawe that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did, to prosper in his hand.
39:4And Ioseph found grace in his sight, and he serued him; and hee made him ouerseer ouer his house, and all that he had he put into his hand.
39:5And it came to passe from the time that hee had made him overseer in his house, and ouer all that he had, that the LORD blessed the Egyptians house for Iosephs sake: and the blessing of the LORD was vpon all that he had in the house, and in the field.
39:6And he left all that he had, in Iosephs hand: and he knew not ought he had, saue the bread which he did eate: and Ioseph was a goodly person, and well fauoured.
39:7And it came to passe after these things, that his masters wife cast her eyes vpon Ioseph, and shee said, Lie with me.
39:8But he refused, and said vnto his masters wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what is with mee in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath, to my hand.
39:9There is none greater in this house then I: neither hath hee kept backe any thing from me, but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I doe this great wickednesse, and sinne against God?
39:10And it came to passe as she spake to Ioseph day by day, that hee hearkened not vnto her, to lie by her, or to bee with her.
39:11And it came to passe about this time, that Ioseph went in to the house, to doe his busines, and there was none of the men of the house there within.
39:12And shee caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.
39:13And it came to passe, when she saw that hee had left his garment in her hand, and was fled forth;
39:14That she called vnto the men of her house, and spake vnto them, saying, See, he hath brought in an Hebrew vnto vs, to mocke vs: he came in vnto me to lie with me, and I cried with a loud voice.
39:15And it came to passe, when hee heard that I lifted vp my voice, and cried, that he left his garment with mee, and fled, and got him out.
39:16And she laid vp his garment by her, vntill her lord came home.
39:17And she spake vnto him, according to these words, saying, The Hebrew seruant which thou hast brought vnto vs, came in vnto me to mocke me.
39:18And it came to passe as I lift vp my voice, and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled out.
39:19And it came to passe when his master heard the words of his wife, which she spake vnto him, saying, After this maner did thy seruant to me, that his wrath was kindled.
39:20And Iosephs master tooke him, and put him into the prison, a place, where ye kings prisoners were bound: and he was there in the prison.
39:21But the LORD was with Ioseph, and shewed him mercie, and gaue him fauour in the sight of the keeper of the prison.
39:22And the keeper of the prison committed to Iosephs hand all the prisoners that were in the prison, and whatsoeuer they did there, he was the doer of it:
39:23The keeper of the prison looked not to any thing, that was vnder his hand, because the LORD was with him: & that which he did, the LORD made it to prosper.

King James Bible 1611

The commissioning of the King James Bible took place at a conference at the Hampton Court Palace in London England in 1604. When King James came to the throne he wanted unity and stability in the church and state, but was well aware that the diversity of his constituents had to be considered. There were the Papists who longed for the English church to return to the Roman Catholic fold and the Latin Vulgate. There were Puritans, loyal to the crown but wanting even more distance from Rome. The Puritans used the Geneva Bible which contained footnotes that the king regarded as seditious. The Traditionalists made up of Bishops of the Anglican Church wanted to retain the Bishops Bible.

The king commissioned a new English translation to be made by over fifty scholars representing the Puritans and Traditionalists. They took into consideration: the Tyndale New Testament, the Matthews Bible, the Great Bible and the Geneva Bible. The great revision of the Bible had begun. From 1605 to 1606 the scholars engaged in private research. From 1607 to 1609 the work was assembled. In 1610 the work went to press, and in 1611 the first of the huge (16 inch tall) pulpit folios known today as "The 1611 King James Bible" came off the printing press.
