11:5By fayth was Enoch traslated yt he shuld not se deeth: nether was he founde: for God had taken him awaye. Before he was taken awaye he was reported of that he had pleased God:
11:6but with out fayth it is vnpossible to please him. For he that commeth to God must beleve that God is and that he is a rewarder of them that seke him.
11:7By fayth Noe honored God after that he was warned of thinges which were not sene and prepared the arcke to the savinge of his houssholde thorowe the which arcke he condempned the worlde and became heyre of the rightewesnes which commeth by fayth.
11:8By fayth Abraha whe he was called obeyed to goo out into a place which he shuld afterwarde receave to inheritaunce and he wet out not knowynge whether he shuld goo.
11:9By fayth he removed into the londe yt was promysed him as into a straunge countre and dwelt in tabernacles: and so dyd Isaac and Iacob heyres with him of the same promes.
11:10For he loked for a citie havinge a foundacio whose bylder and maker is God.
11:11Thorow fayth Sara also receaved stregth to be with chylde and was delivered of a chylde when she was past age because she iudged him faythfull which had promysed.
11:12And therfore spronge therof one (and of one which was as good as deed) so many in multitude as the starres of ye skye and as the sond of the see shore which is innumerable.
11:13And they all dyed in fayth and receaved not the promyses: but sawe them a farre of and beleved them and saluted them: and confessed that they were straungers and pilgrems on the erthe.
11:14They that saye soche thinges declare that they seke a coutre.
11:15Also yf they had bene myndfull of that countre from whence they came oute they had leasure to have returned agayne.
11:16But now they desyre a better that is to saye a hevenlye. Wherfore God is not ashamed of them even to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a citie.
11:17In fayth Abraham offered vp Isaac whe he was tempted and he offered him beinge his only begotten sonne which had receaved the promyses
11:18of who it was sayde in Isaac shall thy seed be called:
11:19for he cosidered that God was able to rayse vp agayne fro deeth. Wherfore receaved he him for an ensample.
11:20In fayth Isaac blessed Iacob and Esau concerninge thinges to come.
11:21By fayth Iacob when he was a dyinge blessed both the sonnes of Ioseph and bowed him selfe towarde the toppe of his cepter.
11:22By fayth Ioseph when he dyed remebred the departinge of the chyldren of Israel and gave commaundement of his bones.
11:23By fayth Moses when he was borne was hid thre monethes of his father and mother be cause they sawe he was a proper chylde: nether feared they the kynges commaundemet.
11:24By fayth Moses when he was great refused to be called ye sonne of Pharaos doughter
11:25and chose rather to suffre adversitie wt the people of God then to enioye the pleasurs of synne for a ceason
11:26and estemed the rebuke of Christ greater ryches then the treasure of Egypt. For he had a respect vnto ye rewarde.
11:27By fayth he forsoke Egypt and feared not the fearcenes of the kynge. For he endured even as he had sene him which is invisible.
11:28Thorow fayth he ordeyned the ester lambe and the effusion of bloud lest he that destroyed the fyrst borne shuld touche them.
11:29By fayth they passed thorow the reed see as by drye londe which when the Egypcians had assayed to do they were drouned.
11:30By fayth the walles of Ierico fell doune after they were copased about seven dayes.
11:31By fayth ye harlot Raab perisshed not with the vnbelevers whe she had receaved the spyes to lodgynge peaseably.
11:32And what shall I more saye ye tyme wold be to short for me to tell of Gedeo of Barach and of Samson and of Iephthae: also of David and Samuel and of the Prophetes:
11:33which thorowe fayth subdued kyngdomes wrought righteousnes obteyned the promyses stopped the mouthes of lyons
11:34queched the violence of fyre escaped the edge of the swearde of weake were made stroge waxed valient in fight turned to flyght the armyes of the alientes.
11:35And the wemen receaved their deed raysed to lyfe agayne. Other were racked and wolde not be delyvered that they myght receave a better resurreccion.
11:36Other tasted of mockynges and scourginginges morover of bondes and presonmet:
11:37were stoned were hewen a sunder were tepted were slayne with sweardes walked vppe and doune in shepes skynnes in gotes skynnes in nede tribulacio and vexacio
11:38which ye worlde was not worthy of: they wadred in wildernes in moutaynes in dennes and caves of the erth.
11:39And these all thorow fayth obtayned good reporte and receaved not the promes
11:40God provydinge a better thinge for vs that they with out vs shuld not be made parfecte.

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.
