King James Bible 1611

New Testament

 

   

9:1And hee entred into a ship, and passed ouer, and came into his owne citie.
9:2And behold, they brought to him a man sicke of the palsie, lying on a bed: and Iesus seeing their faith, said vnto the sicke of the palsie, Sonne, be of good cheere, thy sinnes be forgiuen thee.
9:3And behold, certaine of the Scribes said within themselues, This man blasphemeth.
9:4And Iesus knowing their thoughts, said, Wherefore thinke yee euill in your hearts?
9:5For whether is easier to say, Thy sinnes be forgiuen thee: or to say, Arise, and walke?
9:6But that yee may know that the sonne of man hath power on earth to forgiue sinnes, (Then saith hee to the sicke of the palsie) Arise, take vp thy bed, and goe vnto thine house.
9:7And he arose, and departed to his house.
9:8But when the multitudes saw it, they marueiled, & glorified God, which had giuen such power vnto men.
9:9And as Iesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man named Matthew, sitting at the receite of custome: and he saith vnto him, Follow me. And he arose and followed him.
9:10And it came to passe, as Iesus sate at meate in the house, behold, many publicanes and sinners, came and sate downe with him and his Disciples.
9:11And when the Pharisees saw it, they said vnto his disciples, Why eateth your master with publicanes & sinners.
9:12But when Iesus heard that, hee said vnto them, They that be whole neede not a Physicion, but they that are sicke.
9:13But goe ye and learne what that meaneth, I will haue mercy and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
9:14Then came to him the disciples of Iohn, saying, Why doe we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?
9:15And Iesus saide vnto them, Can the children of the bride-chamber mourne, as long as the bridegrome is with them? But the dayes will come when the bridegrome shall bee taken from them, and then shall they fast.
9:16No man putteth a piece of new cloth vnto an olde garment: for that which is put in to fill it vp, taketh from the garment, & the rent is made worse.
9:17Neither doe men put new wine into old bottels: else the bottels breake, and the wine runneth out, and the bottels perish: but they put new wine into new bottels, and both are preserued.
9:18While hee spake these things vnto them, beholde, there came a certaine ruler and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is euen now dead: but come, and lay thy hand vpon her, and she shall liue.
9:19And Iesus arose, and followed him, and so did his disciples.
9:20(And behold, a woman which was diseased with an issue of blood twelue yeeres, came behinde him, and touched the hemme of his garment.
9:21For she said within her selfe, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.
9:22But Iesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, bee of good comfort, thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that houre.)
9:23And when Iesus came into the rulers house, and saw the minstrels and the people making a noise,
9:24He said vnto them, Giue place, for the mayd is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorne.
9:25But when the people were put foorth, he went in, and tooke her by the hand: and the mayd arose.
9:26And the fame hereof went abroad into all that land.
9:27And when Iesus departed thence, two blinde men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou sonne of Dauid, haue mercy on vs.
9:28And when he was come into the house, the blinde men came to him: and Iesus saith vnto them, Beleeue ye that I am able to doe this? They said vnto him, Yea, Lord.
9:29Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith, bee it vnto you.
9:30And their eyes were opened: and Iesus straitly charged them, saying, See that no man know it.
9:31But they, when they were departed, spread abroad his fame in all that countrey.
9:32As they went out, beholde, they brought to him a dumbe man possessed with a deuill.
9:33And when the deuil was cast out, the dumbe spake, and the multitudes marueiled, saying, It was neuer so seene in Israel.
9:34But the Pharisees said, He casteth out the deuils through the prince of the deuils.
9:35And Iesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their Synagogues, and preaching the Gospel of the kingdome, and healing euery sickenesse, and euery disease among the people.
9:36But when he saw the multitudes, he was moued with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheepe hauing no shepheard.
9:37Then saith he vnto his disciples, The haruest truely is plenteous, but the labourers are few.
9:38Pray ye therefore the Lord of the haruest, that hee will send foorth labourers into his haruest.

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.
