10:3The same man sawe in a vision evydetly aboute ye nynthe houre of ye daye an angell of god comynge into him and sayinge vnto him: Cornelius.
10:4When he looked on him he was afrayde and sayde: what is it lorde? He sayde vnto him. Thy prayers and thy almeses ar come vp into remembraunce before God.
10:5And now sende men to Ioppa and call for one Simon named also Peter.
10:6He lodgeth with one Simon a tanner whose housse is by ye see syde. He shall tell the what thou oughtest to doo.
10:7When the angell which spake vnto Cornelius was departed he called two of his housholde servauntes and a devoute soudier of them that wayted on him
10:8and tolde them all the mater and sent them to Ioppa.
10:9On the morowe as they wet on their iorney and drewe nye vnto the cite Peter went vp into the toppe of ye housse to praye aboute the .vi. houre.
10:10Then wexed he an hongred and wolde have eate. But whyll they made redy. He fell into a trauce
10:11and sawe heven opened and a certayne vessell come doune vnto him as it had bene a greate shete knyt at the .iiii. corners and was let doune to the erth
10:12where in wer all maner of .iiii. foted beastes of the erth and vermen and wormes and foules of the ayer.
10:13And ther came a voyce to him: ryse Peter kyll and eate.
10:14But Peter sayde: God forbyd Lorde for I have never eaten eny thinge that is comen or vnclene.
10:15And the voyce spake vnto him agayne the seconde tyme: what God hath clensed that make thou not comen.
10:16This was done thryse and the vessell was receaved vp agayne into heven.
10:17Whyle Peter mused in him selfe what this vision which he had sene meant beholde the men which were sent from Cornelius had made inquirance for Simons housse and stode before the dore.
10:18And called out won and axed whether Simon which was also called Peter were lodged there.
10:19Whyll Peter thought on this vision the sprete sayde vnto him: Beholde men seke the:
10:20aryse therfore get the doune and goo with them and doute not. For I have sent them.
10:21Peter went doune to ye men which were sent vnto him from Cornelius and sayde Beholde I am he whom ye seke what is the cause wherfore ye are come?
10:22And they sayde vnto him: Cornelius the captayne a iust man and won that feareth God and of good reporte amonge all the people of the Iewes was warned by an holy angell to sende for the into his housse and to heare wordes of the.
10:23Then called he them in and lodged them.And on ye morowe Peter wet awaye with them and certayne brethren from Ioppa accompanyed hym.
10:24And the thyrd daye entred they into Cesaria. And Cornelius wayted for them and had called to gether his kynsmen and speciall frendes.
10:25And as it chaunsed Peter to come in Cornelius met hym and fell doune at his fete and worshipped hym.
10:26But Peter toke him vp sayinge: stonde vp: for evyn I my silfe am a ma.
10:27And as he talked with him he cam in and founde many that were come to gether.
10:28And he sayde vnto them: Ye do knowe how that yt ys an vnlawfull thynge for a man that is a Iewe to company or come vnto an alient: But god hath shewed me that I shuld not call eny man commen or vnclene:
10:29therfore came I vnto you with oute sayege naye assone as I was sent for. I axe therfore for what intent have ye sent for me?
10:30And Cornelius sayde: This daye now .iiii. dayes I fasted and at the nynthe houre I prayde in my housse: and beholde a man stode before me in bright clothynge
10:31and sayde: Cornelius thy prayer is hearde and thyne almes dedes are had in remembraunce in the sight of God.
10:32Sende therfore to Ioppa and call for Simon which is also called Peter. He is lodged in the housse of one Simon a tanner by the see syde ye wich assone as he is come shall speake vnto ye.
10:33Then sent I for ye immediatly and thou hast well done for to come. Now are we all here present before god to heare all thynges yt are commaunded vnto the of God.
10:34Then Peter opened his mouth and sayde: Of a trueth I perseave that God is not parciall
10:35but in all people he that feareth him and worketh rightewesnes is accepted with him.
10:36Ye knowe the preachynge that God sent vnto the chyldren of Israel preachinge peace by Iesus Christe (which is Lorde over all thinges):
10:37Which preachinge was published thorow oute all Iewrye and begane in Galile after the baptyme which Iohn preached
10:38how God had annoynted Iesus of Nazareth with the holy goost and with power which Iesus went aboute doinge good and healynge all yt were oppressed of the develles for God was with him.
10:39And we are witnesses of all thinges which he dyd in the londe of the Iewes and at Ierusalem whom they slew and honge on tree.
10:40Him God reysed vp ye thyrde daye and shewed him openly
10:41not to all the people but vnto vs witnesses chosyn before of God which ate and dronke with him after he arose from deeth.
10:42And he comaunded vs to preache vnto the people and testifie that it is he that is ordened of God a iudge of quycke and deed.
10:43To him geve all the Prophetes witnes that thorowe his name shall receave remission of synnes all that beleve in him.
10:44Whyle Peter yet spake these wordes the holy gost fell on all them which hearde the preachinge.
10:45And they of ye circucision which beleved were astonyed as many as came wt Peter because that on the Gentyls also was sheed oute ye gyfte of the holy gost.
10:46For they hearde them speake with tonges and magnify God. Then answered Peter:
10:47can eny man forbyd water that these shuld not be baptised which have receaved the holy goost as well as we?
10:48And he comaunded them to be baptysed in the name of the Lorde. Then prayde they him to tary a feawe dayes.

William Tyndale Bible 1534

William Tyndale was the first man to ever print the New Testament in the English language. Tyndale also went on to be the first to translate much of the Old Testament from the original Hebrew into English, but he was executed in 1536 for the "crime" of printing the scriptures in English before he could personally complete the printing of an entire Bible. His friends Myles Coverdale, and John [Thomas Matthew] Rogers, managed to evade arrest and publish entire Bibles in the English language for the first time, and within one year of Tyndale's death. These Bibles were primarily the work of William Tyndale.
