King James Bible 1611

New Testament

 

   

27:1When the morning was come, all the chiefe Priests and Elders of the people, tooke counsell against Iesus to put him to death.
27:2And when they had bound him, they led him away, and deliuered him to Pontius Pilate the gouernour.
27:3Then Iudas, which had betraied him, when he saw that hee was condemned, repented himselfe, and brought againe the thirtie pieces of siluer to the chiefe Priests and Elders,
27:4Saying, I haue sinned, in that I haue betraied the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to vs? see thou to that.
27:5And hee cast downe the pieces of siluer in the Temple, and departed, and went and hanged himselfe.
27:6And the chiefe Priests tooke the siluer pieces, and said, It is not lawfull for to put them into the treasurie, because it is the price of blood.
27:7And they tooke counsell, and bought with them the potters field, to burie strangers in.
27:8Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood vnto this day.
27:9(Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Ieremie the Prophet, saying, And they tooke the thirtie pieces of siluer, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value:
27:10And gaue them for the potters field, as the Lord appointed me.)
27:11And Iesus stood before the gouernour, and the gouernour asked him, saying; Art thou the King of the Iewes? And Iesus sayd vnto him, Thou sayest.
27:12And when hee was accused of the chiefe Priests and Elders, he answered nothing.
27:13Then saith Pilate vnto him, Hearest thou not how many things they witnesse against thee?
27:14And he answered him to neuer a word: insomuch that the Gouernour marueiled greatly.
27:15Now at that feast the Gouernor was woont to release vnto the people a prisoner, whom they would.
27:16And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.
27:17Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said vnto them, Whom will ye that I release vnto you? Barabbas, or Iesus, which is called Christ?
27:18For hee knew that for enuie they had deliuered him.
27:19When he was set downe on the Iudgement seate, his wife sent vnto him, saying, Haue thou nothing to doe with that iust man: for I haue suffered many things this day in a dreame, because of him.
27:20But the chiefe Priestes and Elders perswaded the multitude that they should aske Barabbas, & destroy Iesus.
27:21The Gouernour answered, and said vnto them, Whether of the twaine will ye that I release vnto you? They said, Barabbas.
27:22Pilate said vnto them, What shall I doe then with Iesus, which is called Christ? They all sayde vnto him, Let him be crucified.
27:23And the Gouernour said, Why, what euil hath he done? But they cried out ye more, saying, Let him be crucified.
27:24When Pilate saw that he could preuaile nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, hee tooke water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this iust person: see yee to it.
27:25Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on vs, and on our children.
27:26Then released hee Barabbas vnto them, and when he had scourged Iesus, he deliuered him to be crucified.
27:27Then the souldiers of the Gouernour tooke Iesus into the common hall, and gathered vnto him the whole band of souldiers.
27:28And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.
27:29And when they had platted a crowne of thornes, they put it vpon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Haile king of the Iewes.
27:30And they spit vpon him, and tooke the reed, and smote him on the head.
27:31And after that they had mocked him, they tooke the robe off from him, and put his owne raiment on him, and led him away to crucifie him.
27:32And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to beare his Crosse.
27:33And when they were come vnto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,
27:34They gaue him vineger to drinke, mingled with gall: and when hee had tasted thereof, hee would not drinke.
27:35And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Prophet, They parted my garments among them, and vpon my vesture did they cast lots.
27:36And sitting downe, they watched him there:
27:37And set vp ouer his head, his accusation written, THIS IS IESVS THE KING OF THE IEWES.
27:38Then were there two theeues crucified with him: one on the right hand, and another on the left.
27:39And they that passed by, reuiled him, wagging their heads,
27:40And saying, Thou that destroyest the Temple, & buildest it in three dayes, saue thy selfe: If thou be the Sonne of God, come downe from the Crosse.
27:41Likewise also the chiefe Priests mocking him, with the Scribes and Elders, said,
27:42He saued others, himselfe he cannot saue: If he be the King of Israel, let him now come downe from the Crosse, and we will beleeue him.
27:43He trusted in God, let him deliuer him now if hee will haue him: for he said, I am the Sonne of God.
27:44The thieues also which were crucified with him, cast ye same in his teeth.
27:45Now from the sixth houre there was darkenesse ouer all the land vnto the ninth houre.
27:46And about the ninth houre, Iesus cried with a loud voyce, saying, Eli, Eli, Lamasabachthani, that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken mee?
27:47Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias.
27:48And straightway one of them ran, and tooke a spunge, and filled it with vineger, and put it on a reede, and gaue him to drinke.
27:49The rest said, Let bee, let vs see whether Elias will come to saue him.
27:50Iesus, when hee had cried againe with a loud voice, yeelded vp the ghost.
27:51And behold, the vaile of the Temple was rent in twaine, from the top to the bottome, and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent.
27:52And the graues were opened, and many bodies of Saints which slept, arose,
27:53And came out of the graues after his resurrection, and went into the holy citie, and appeared vnto many.
27:54Now when the Centurion, and they that were with him, watching Iesus, saw the earthquake, & those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truely this was the Son of God.
27:55And many women were there (beholding afarre off) which followed Iesus from Galilee, ministring vnto him.
27:56Among which was Mary Magdalene, & Mary the mother of Iames and Ioses, and the mother of Zebedees children.
27:57When the Euen was come, there came a rich man of Arimathea, named Ioseph, who also himselfe was Iesus disciple:
27:58He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Iesus: then Pilate commanded the body to be deliuered.
27:59And when Ioseph had taken the body, hee wrapped it in a cleane linnen cloth,
27:60And laide it in his owne newe tombe, which he had hewen out in the rocke: and he rolled a great stone to the doore of the sepulchre, and departed.
27:61And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting ouer against the sepulchre.
27:62Now the next day that followed the day of the preparation, the chiefe Priests and Pharisees came together vnto Pilate,
27:63Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiuer said, while he was yet aliue, After three daies I wil rise againe.
27:64Command therfore that the sepulchre be made sure, vntill the third day, lest his disciples come by night, & steale him away, and say vnto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last errour shalbe worse then the first.
27:65Pilate said vnto them, Yee haue a watch, goe your way, make it as sure as you can.
27:66So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.
King James Bible 1611

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.
