King James Bible 1611

 

   

3:1And I, brethren, could not speake vnto you as vnto spirituall, but as vnto carnall, euen as vnto babes in Christ.
3:2I haue fed you with milke, and not with meate: for hitherto yee were not able to beare it, neither yet now are ye able.
3:3For ye are yet carnall: for whereas there is among you enuying, and strife, and diuisions, are ye not carnall, and walke as men?
3:4For while one saieth, I am of Paul, and another, I am of Apollo, are ye not carnall?
3:5Who then is Paul? and who is Apollo? but ministers by whom ye beleeued, euen as the Lord gaue to euery man.
3:6I haue planted, Apollo watered: but God gaue the encrease.
3:7So then, neither is he that planteth any thing, neither hee that watereth: but God that giueth the increase.
3:8Now hee that planteth, and hee that watereth, are one: and euery man shal receiue his own reward according to his owne labour.
3:9For wee are labourers together with God, ye are Gods husbandry, yee are Gods building.
3:10According to the grace of God which is giuen vnto mee, as a wise master builder I haue laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let euery man take heede how hee buildeth thereupon.
3:11For other foundation can no man lay, then that is laide, which is Iesus Christ.
3:12Now if any man build vpon this foundation, gold, siluer, preciousstones, wood, hay, stubble:
3:13Euery mans worke shall be made manifest. For the day shall declare it, because it shall bee reuealed by fire, and the fire shall trie euery mans worke of what sort it is.
3:14If any mans worke abide which he hath built thereupon, he shal receiue a reward.
3:15If any mans worke shall bee burnt, he shall suffer losse: but he himselfe shall be saued: yet so, as by fire.
3:16Knowe yee not that yee are the Temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
3:17If any man defile the Temple of God, him shall God destroy: for the Temple of God is holy, which Temple ye are.
3:18Let no man deceiue himselfe: If any man among you seemeth to bee wise in this world, let him become a foole, that he may be wise.
3:19For the wisedome of this world is foolishnesse with God: for it is written, Hee taketh the wise in their owne craftinesse.
3:20And againe, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vaine.
3:21Therefore let no man glory in men, for all things are yours.
3:22Whether Paul, or Apollo, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come, all are yours.
3:23And yee are Christs, and Christ is Gods.

King James Bible 1611

The commissioning of the King James Bible took place at a 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.
