King James Bible 1611

New Testament

 

   

4:1Then was Iesus led vp of the Spirit into the wildernesse, to bee tempted of the deuill.
4:2And when hee had fasted forty dayes and forty nights, hee was afterward an hungred.
4:3And when the tempter came to him, hee said, If thou be the sonne of God, command that these stones bee made bread.
4:4But he answered, and said, It is written, Man shall not liue by bread alone, but by euery word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
4:5Then the deuill taketh him vp into the holy Citie, and setteth him on a pinacle of the Temple,
4:6And saith vnto him, If thou bee the Sonne of God, cast thy selfe downe: For it is written, He shall giue his Angels charge concerning thee, & in their handes they shall beare thee vp, lest at any time thou dash thy foote against a stone.
4:7Iesus said vnto him, It is written againe, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
4:8Againe the Deuill taketh him vp into an exceeding high mountaine, and sheweth him all the kingdomes of the world, and the glory of them:
4:9And saith vnto him, All these things will I giue thee, if thou wilt fall downe and worship me.
4:10Then saith Iesus vnto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him onely shalt thou serue.
4:11Then the deuill leaueth him, and behold, Angels came and ministred vnto him.
4:12Now when Iesus had heard that Iohn was cast into prison, he departed into Galilee.
4:13And leauing Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is vpon the Sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthali:
4:14That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the Prophet, saying,
4:15The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthali, by the way of the Sea beyond Iordane, Galilee of the Gentiles:
4:16The people which sate in darkenesse, saw great light: and to them which sate in the region and shadow of death, light is sprung vp.
4:17From that time Iesus began to preach, and to say, Repent, for the kingdome of heauen is at hand.
4:18And Iesus walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon, called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the Sea (for they were fishers)
4:19And he saith vnto them, Follow mee: and I will make you fishers of men.
4:20And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.
4:21And going on from thence, hee sawe other two brethren, Iames the sonne of Zebedee, and Iohn his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets: and he called them.
4:22And they immediatly left the shippe and their father, and followed him.
4:23And Iesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their Synagogues, and preaching the Gospel of the kingdome, and healing all maner of sickenesse, and all maner of disease among the people.
4:24And his fame went thorowout all Syria: and they brought vnto him all sicke people that were taken with diuerse diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with deuils, and those which were lunaticke, and those that had the palsie, and he healed them.
4:25And there followed him great great multitudes of people, from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Hierusalem, and from Iudea, and from beyond Iordane.

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.
