20:21witnessinge bothe to the Iewes and also to the Grekes the repentaunce toward God and faith towarde oure Lorde Iesu.
20:22And now beholde I goo bounde in the sprete vnto Ierusalem and knowe not what shall come on me there
20:23but that the holy goost witnesseth in every cite sayinge: yt bondes and trouble abyde me.
20:24But none of tho thinges move me: nether is my lyfe dere vnto my selfe that I myght fulfill my course wt ioye and the ministracio which I have receaved of ye Lorde Iesu to testify the gospell of ye grace of god.
20:25And now beholde I am sure yt hence forth ye all (thorow who I have gone preachinge ye kyngdome of God) shall se my face no moore.
20:26Wherfore I take you to recorde this same daye that I am pure fro the bloude of all me.
20:27For I have kepte nothinge backe: but have shewed you all the counsell of God.
20:28Take hede therfore vnto youre selves and to all the flocke wherof the holy goost hath made you oversears to rule the congregacion of God which he hath purchased with his bloud.
20:29For I am sure of this that after my departynge shall greveous wolves entre in amonge you which will not spare the flocke.
20:30Moreover of youre awne selves shall men aryse speakinge perverse thinges to drawe disciples after the.
20:31Therfore awake and remember that by the space of .iii. yeares I ceased not to warne every one of you both nyght and daye with teares.
20:32And now brethren I comende you to God and to the worde of his grace which is able to bylde further and to geve you an inheritaunce amoge all them which are sanctified.
20:33I have desyred no mas silver golde or vesture.
20:34Ye knowe well yt these hondes have ministred vnto my necessities and to them that were wt me.

20:38sorowinge most of all for the wordes which he spake that they shuld se his face no moore. And they acompanyed him vnto the shyppe.

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.
