Bishops Bible 1568



12:1I beseche you therfore brethren, by the mercifulnesse of God, that ye geue vp your bodyes a quicke sacrifice, holy, acceptable vnto God, [whiche is] your reasonable seruice:
12:2And fasshion not your selues lyke vnto this worlde, but be ye chaunged in your shape, by ye renuing of your minde, that ye may proue what is the wyll of God, good, and acceptable, and perfect.
12:3For I say, through the grace geuen vnto me, to euery man among you, that no man esteeme of hym selfe more then he ought to esteeme: but so esteeme [hym selfe] that he behaue hymselfe discretelye, accordyng as God hath dealt to euerye man the measure of fayth.
12:4For as we haue many members in one body, and all members haue not one office:
12:5So, we beyng many, are one body in Christe, and euery one members one of another.
12:6Seyng that we haue dyuers giftes, accordyng to the grace that is geuen vnto vs, yf any man haue the gyft, either prophesie after the measure of fayth,
12:7Either office in administration, or he that teacheth in teachyng:
12:8Or he that exhorteth, in exhortyng, he that geueth in singlenesse, he that ruleth in diligence, he that is mercifull in chearefulnesse.
12:9Loue without dissimulation, hatyng euyll, cleauyng to good.
12:10Affectioned one to another with brotherly loue, in geuyng honour, go one before another.
12:11Not lither in businesse, feruent in spirite, seruyng the Lorde,
12:12Reioycyng in hope, pacient in trouble, instant in prayer,
12:13Distributyng to ye necessitie of saintes, geuen to hospitalitie.
12:14Blesse them which persecute you, blesse, and curse not.
12:15Reioyce with them that do reioyce, and wepe with them that wepe.
12:16Beyng of lyke affection one towardes another, beyng not hye mynded: but makyng your selues equall to them of the lower sort. Be not wise in your owne opinions,
12:17Recompensyng to no man euyll for euyll. Prouydyng afore hande thynges honest, [not only before God, but also] in the syght of all men.
12:18If it be possible, as much as lyeth in you, lyue peaceably with all men.
12:19Dearely beloued, auenge not your selues, but rather geue place vnto wrath. For it is written: Uengeaunce is myne, I wyll repay sayth the Lorde.
12:20Therfore, yf thyne enemie hunger, feede hym: yf he thyrst, geue him drinke. For in so doyng, thou shalt heape coales of fyre on his head.
12:21Be not ouercome of euyll, but ouercome euyll with good.

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.
