Bishops Bible 1568



8:1Iesus went vnto mout Oliuete.
8:2And early in the mornyng he came agayne into the temple, and all the people came vnto hym, & he sate downe and taught them.
8:3And the scribes and pharisees brought vnto hym a woman taken in adulterie, & when they had set her in the middes,
8:4They sayde vnto hym: Maister, this woman was taken in adulterie, euen as the deede was a doyng.
8:5Moyses in the lawe commaunded vs that suche shoulde be stoned: But what sayest thou?
8:6This they sayde to tempte hym, that they myght accuse hym. But Iesus stowped downe, and with his fynger wrote on the grounde.
8:7So, when they continued asking him, he lyft vp hym selfe, & sayde vnto them: Let hym that is among you without sinne, caste the first stone at her.
8:8And agayne he stowped downe, and wrote on the grounde.
8:9And when they hearde this, beyng accused of their owne consciences, they went out one by one, begynnyng at the eldest, euen vnto the last: and Iesus was left alone, & the woman standyng in the myddes.
8:10When Iesus had lyft vp hym selfe, & sawe no man but the woman, he sayde vnto her: Woma where are those thine accusers? Hath no man condempned thee?
8:11She sayde, No man Lorde. And Iesus sayde, Neither do I condempne thee: Go, and sinne no more.
8:12Then spake Iesus agayne vnto them, saying, I am the light of ye world: He that foloweth me, doth not walke in darknesse, but shal haue the light of life.
8:13The pharisees therfore said vnto him: Thou bearest recorde of thy selfe, thy recorde is not true.
8:14Iesus aunswered, & saide vnto them: Though I beare recorde of my selfe, yet my recorde is true. For I knowe whence I came, & whyther I go: But ye can not tel whence I come, and whyther I go.
8:15Ye iudge after the fleshe, I iudge no man.
8:16And if I iudge, my iudgement is true: For I am not alone, but I and the father that sent me.
8:17It is also written in your lawe, that the testimonie of two men is true.
8:18I am one that beareth witnesse of my selfe, & the father that sent me beareth witnesse of me.
8:19Then sayde they vnto hym: Where is thy father? Iesus aunswered, Ye neither knowe me, nor yet my father: Yf ye had knowen me, ye should haue knowen my father also.
8:20These wordes spake Iesus in ye treasurie, as he taught in the temple, and no man layde handes on hym, for his houre was not yet come.
8:21Then sayde Iesus againe vnto them: I go my way, and ye shall seeke me, and shall dye in your synnes: Whyther I go, thyther can ye not come.
8:22Then sayde the Iewes: Wyll he kyll hym selfe, because he saith, whyther I go, thyther can ye not come?
8:23And he sayde vnto them: ye are from beneathe, I am from aboue: ye are of this worlde, I am not of this worlde.
8:24I sayde therefore vnto you, that you shall dye in your sinnes. For yf ye beleue not that I am he, ye shall dye in your sinnes.
8:25Then sayde they vnto hym: Who art thou? And Iesus saith vnto them: Euen the very same thyng that I sayde vnto you from the begynnyng.
8:26I haue many thynges to saye, and to iudge of you. Yea, & he that sent me, is true: And I speake to the world, those thynges which I haue hearde of hym.
8:27Howebeit, they vnderstoode not that he spake to them of his father.
8:28Then saide Iesus vnto them: When ye haue lift vp [an hye] the sonne of man, then shall ye knowe that I am he, and that I do nothyng of my selfe: but as my father hath taught me, euen so I speake these thynges.
8:29And he that sent me, is with me. The father hath not left me alone: For I do alwayes those thynges that please him.
8:30As he spake those wordes, many beleued on hym.
8:31Then sayde Iesus to those Iewes which beleued on him: Yf ye continue in my word, then are ye my very disciples.
8:32And ye shall knowe the trueth, and the trueth shall make you free.
8:33They aunswered hym: We be Abrahams seede, and were neuer bonde to any man: howe sayest thou then, ye shalbe made free?
8:34Iesus aunswered them: Ueryly, veryly I say vnto you, that whosoeuer comitteth sinne, is the seruaunt of sinne.
8:35And the seruaut abideth not in ye house for euer: but the sonne abydeth euer.
8:36Yf the sonne therefore shall make you free, then are ye free in deede.
8:37I know that ye are Abrahams seede, but ye seke [meanes] to kyll me, because my worde hath no place in you.
8:38I speake that whiche I haue seene with my father: and ye do that whiche ye haue seene with your father.
8:39They aunswered, and saide vnto him: Abraham is our father. Iesus saith vnto them: Yf ye were Abrahams childre, ye woulde do the workes of Abraham.
8:40But now ye go about to kyll me, a ma that hath tolde you the trueth, which I haue heard of god: this did not Abraha.
8:41Ye do the deedes of your father. Then said they to him: We be not borne of fornication, we haue one father, euen God.
8:42Iesus saide vnto them: Yf God were your father, truely ye woulde loue me: For I proceaded foorth, and came from God: neither came I of my selfe, but he sent me.
8:43Why do ye not knowe my speache? euen because ye cannot heare my word.
8:44Ye are of your father the deuyll, and the lustes of your father wyll ye do. He was a murtherer from the begynnyng, and abode not in the trueth: because there is no trueth in hym. When he speaketh a lye, he speaketh of his owne: For he is a lyer, and the father of the same thyng.
8:45And because I tel you the trueth, therfore ye beleue me not.
8:46Which of you rebuketh me of sinne? Yf I say the trueth, why do not ye beleue me?
8:47He that is of god, heareth gods wordes. Ye therfore heare the not, because ye are not of God.
8:48Then aunswered the Iewes, & saide vnto hym: Say we not well that thou art a Samaritane, and hast the deuyl?
8:49Iesus aunswered, I haue not the deuyll: but I honour my father, and ye haue dishonoured me.
8:50I seke not myne owne praise, there is one that seketh, and iudgeth.
8:51Ueryly veryly I saye vnto you, yf a man kepe my saying, he shall neuer see death.
8:52Then sayde the Iewes vnto hym: Now know we that thou hast ye deuyll. Abraham is dead, & the prophetes: and thou sayest, yf a man kepe my saying, he shall neuer taste of death.
8:53Art thou greater the our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophetes are dead: whom makest thou thy selfe?
8:54Iesus aunswered: Yf I honour my selfe, mine honour is nothing. It is my father that honoureth me, which ye say is your God:
8:55And yet ye haue not knowen him, but I knowe hym: And if I say I knowe hym not, I shalbe a lyer lyke vnto you. But I knowe hym, & kepe his saying.
8:56Your father Abraham was glad to see my day: and he saw it, and reioyced.
8:57Then sayde the Iewes vnto hym: Thou art not yet fiftie yeres olde, & hast thou seene Abraham.
8:58Iesus sayde vnto them: Ueryly, veryly I saye vnto you, before Abraham was, I am.
8:59Then toke they vp stones to caste at hym: but Iesus hyd hym selfe, and went out of the temple.
Bishops Bible 1568

Bishops Bible 1568

The Bishops' Bible was produced under the authority of the established Church of England in 1568. It was substantially revised in 1572, and the 1602 edition was prescribed as the base text for the King James Bible completed in 1611. The thorough Calvinism of the Geneva Bible offended the Church of England, to which almost all of its bishops subscribed. They associated Calvinism with Presbyterianism, which sought to replace government of the church by bishops with government by lay elders. However, they were aware that the Great Bible of 1539 , which was the only version then legally authorized for use in Anglican worship, was severely deficient, in that much of the Old Testament and Apocrypha was translated from the Latin Vulgate, rather than from the original Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek. In an attempt to replace the objectionable Geneva translation, they circulated one of their own, which became known as the Bishops' Bible.
