King James Bible 1611

New Testament

 

   

15:1Then came to Iesus Scribes and Pharisees, which were of Hierusalem, saying,
15:2Why do thy disciples transgresse the tradition of the Elders? for they wash not their handes when they eat bread.
15:3But hee answered, and said vnto them, Why doe you also transgresse the Commandement of God by your tradition?
15:4For God commaunded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: And hee that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.
15:5But yee say, Whosoeuer shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift by whatsoeuer thou mightest bee profited by me,
15:6And honour not his father or his mother, hee shall be free. Thus haue yee made the Commaundement of God of none effect by your tradition.
15:7Yee hypocrites, well did Esaias prophecie of you, saying,
15:8This people draweth nigh vnto mee with their mouth, and honoureth mee with their lips: but their heart is farre from me.
15:9But in vaine they do worship me, teaching for doctrines, the commandements of men.
15:10And he called the multitude, and said vnto them, Heare and vnderstand.
15:11Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man: but that which commeth out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
15:12Then came his disciples, and said vnto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended after they heard this saying?
15:13But he answered and said, Euery plant which my heauenly father hath not planted, shalbe rooted vp.
15:14Let them alone: they be blinde leaders of the blinde. And if the blinde lead the blinde, both shall fall into the ditch.
15:15Then answered Peter, and said vnto him, Declare vnto vs this parable.
15:16And Iesus said, Are yee also yet without vnderstanding?
15:17Doe not yee yet vnderstand, that whatsoeuer entreth in at the mouth, goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?
15:18But those things which proceed out of the mouth, come forth from the heart, and they defile the man.
15:19For out of the heart proceed euill thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witnes, blasphemies.
15:20These are the things which defile a man: But to eate with vnwashen hands, defileth not a man.
15:21Then Iesus went thence, and departed into the coastes of Tyre and Sidon.
15:22And behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, & cried vnto him, saying, Haue mercy on me, O Lord, thou sonne of Dauid, my daughter is grieuously vexed with a deuill.
15:23But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came, and besought him, saying, Send her away, for she cryeth after vs.
15:24But he answered, and said, I am not sent, but vnto the lost sheepe of the house of Israel.
15:25Then came she, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, helpe me.
15:26But he answered, and said, It is not meete to take the childrens bread, and to cast it to dogs.
15:27And she said, Trueth Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crummes which fall from their masters table.
15:28Then Iesus answered, and said vnto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it vnto thee euen as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very houre.
15:29And Iesus departed fro thence, and came nigh vnto the sea of Galile, and went vp into a mountaine, and sate downe there.
15:30And great multitudes came vnto him, hauing with them those that were lame, blinde, dumbe, maimed, and many others, and cast them downe at Iesus feet, and he healed them:
15:31Insomuch that the multitude wondred, when they saw the dumbe to speake, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walke, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel.
15:32Then Iesus called his disciples vnto him, and said, I haue compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three dayes, and haue nothing to eate: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way.
15:33And his disciples say vnto him, Whence should we haue so much bread in the wildernesse, as to fill so great a multitude?
15:34And Iesus saith vnto them, How many loaues haue yee? And they said, Seuen, and a few little fishes.
15:35And hee commaunded the multitude to sit downe on the ground.
15:36And he tooke the seuen loaues and the fishes, and gaue thankes, and brake them, and gaue to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
15:37And they did all eate, and were filled: and they tooke vp of the broken meate that was left, seuen baskets full.
15:38And they that did eat, were foure thousand men, beside women and children.
15:39And he sent away the multitude, and tooke ship, and came into the coasts of Magdala.

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.
