New Testament

 

   

19:1And it came to passe, that when Iesus had finished these sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coastes of Iudea, beyond Iordane:
19:2And great multitudes followed him, and he healed them there.
19:3The Pharisees also came vnto him, tempting him, and saying vnto him, Is it lawfull for a man to put away his wife for euery cause?
19:4And hee answered, and said vnto them, Haue ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning, made them male and female?
19:5And said, For this cause shall a man leaue father and mother, and shall cleaue to his wife: and they twaine shalbe one flesh.
19:6Wherefore they are no more twaine, but one flesh. What therefore God hath ioyned together, let not man put asunder.
19:7They say vnto him, Why did Moses then command to giue a writing of diuorcement, and to put her away?
19:8Hee saith vnto them, Moses, because of the hardnesse of your hearts, suffered you to put away your wiues: but from the beginning it was not so.
19:9And I say vnto you, Whosoeuer shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away, doth commit adultery.
19:10His disciples say vnto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marrie.
19:11But hee said vnto them, All men cannot receiue this saying, saue they to whom it is giuen.
19:12For there are some Eunuches, which were so borne from their mothers wombe: and there are some Eunuches, which were made Eunuches of men: and there be Eunuches, which haue made themselues Eunuches for the kingdome of heauens sake. He that is able to receiue it, let him receiue it.
19:13Then were there brought vnto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them.
19:14But Iesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not to come vnto me: for of such is ye kingdome of heauen.
19:15And he laide his hands on them, and departed thence.
19:16And behold, one came and said vnto him, Good master, what good thing shall I do, that I may haue eternall life?
19:17And he said vnto him, Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandements.
19:18He saith vnto him, Which? Iesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steale, Thou shalt not beare false witnesse,
19:19Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt loue thy neighbour as thy selfe.
19:20The young man saith vnto him, All these things haue I kept from my youth vp: what lacke I yet?
19:21Iesus said vnto him, If thou wilt be perfect, goe and sell that thou hast, and giue to the poore, and thou shalt haue treasure in heauen: and come and follow me.
19:22But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowfull: for he had great possessions.
19:23Then said Iesus vnto his disciples, Uerely I say vnto you, that a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdome of heauen.
19:24And againe I say vnto you, It is easier for a camel to goe thorow the eye of a needle, then for a rich man to enter into the kingdome of God.
19:25When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saued?
19:26But Iesus beheld them, and said vnto them, With men this is vnpossible, but with God al things are possible.
19:27Then answered Peter, and said vnto him, Behold, we haue forsaken all, and followed thee, what shall we haue therefore?
19:28And Iesus said vnto them, Uerily I say vnto you, that ye which haue followed me, in the regeneration when the Sonne of man shal sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shal sit vpon twelue thrones, iudging the twelue tribes of Israel.
19:29And euery one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my Names sake, shall receiue an hundred fold, and shall inherite euerlasting life.
19:30But many that are first, shall be last, and the last shall be first.

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.
