King James Bible 1611

New Testament

 

   

14:1At that time Herod the Tetrarch heard of the fame of Iesus,
14:2And said vnto his seruants, This is Iohn the Baptist, hee is risen from the dead, and therfore mighty workes doe shew foorth themselues in him.
14:3For Herode had layd hold on Iohn, and bound him, and put him in prison for Herodias sake, his brother Philips wife.
14:4For Iohn said vnto him, It is not lawfull for thee to haue her.
14:5And when he would haue put him to death, hee feared the multitude, because they counted him as a Prophet.
14:6But when Herods birth day was kept, the daughter of Herodias daunced before them, and pleased Herode.
14:7Whereupon he promised with an oath, to giue her whatsoeuer she would aske.
14:8And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Giue me heere Iohn Baptists head in a charger.
14:9And the king was sorie: neuerthelesse for the othes sake, and them which sate with him at meate, he commanded it to be giuen her:
14:10And he sent, and beheaded Iohn in the prison.
14:11And his head was brought in a charger, and giuen to the Damsell: and she brought it to her mother.
14:12And his Disciples came, and took vp the body, and buried it, and went and told Iesus.
14:13When Iesus heard of it, he departed thence by ship, into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard thereof, they followed him on foote, out of the cities.
14:14And Iesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was mooued with compassion toward them, and he healed their sicke.
14:15And when it was euening, his Disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may goe into the villages, and buy themselues victuals.
14:16But Iesus said vnto them, They neede not depart; giue yee them to eate.
14:17And they say vnto him, We haue heere but fiue loaues, and two fishes.
14:18He said, Bring them hither to me.
14:19And hee commanded the multitude to sit downe on the grasse, & tooke the fiue loaues, and the two fishes, and looking vp to heauen, hee blessed, and brake, and gaue the loaues to his Disciples, and the Disciples to the multitude.
14:20And they did all eat, & were filled: and they tooke vp of the fragments that remained twelue baskets full.
14:21And they that had eaten, were about fiue thousand men, beside women and children.
14:22And straightway Iesus constrained his Disciples to get into a ship, and to goe before him vnto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away.
14:23And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went vp into a mountaine apart to pray: and when the euening was come, he was there alone:
14:24But the ship was now in the midst of the Sea, tossed with waues: for the wind was contrary.
14:25And in the fourth watch of the night, Iesus went vnto them, walking on the Sea.
14:26And when the Disciples saw him walking on the Sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit: and they cried out for feare.
14:27But straightway Iesus spake vnto them, saying, Be of good cheere: it is I, be not afraid.
14:28And Peter answered him, and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come vnto thee on the water.
14:29And he said, Come. And when Peter was come downe out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Iesus.
14:30But when he saw the wind boysterous, he was afraid: and beginning to sinke, he cried, saying, Lord saue me.
14:31And immediately Iesus stretched foorth his hand, and caught him, and said vnto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?
14:32And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.
14:33Then they that were in the ship, came and worshipped him, saying, Of a trueth thou art the sonne of God.
14:34And when they were gone ouer, they came into ye land of Genesaret.
14:35And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that countrey round about, and brought vnto him al that were diseased,
14:36And besought him, that they might onely touch the hemme of his garment; and as many as touched, were made perfectly whole.

King James Bible 1611

The commissioning of the King James Bible took place at 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.
