Bishops Bible 1568



15:1We whiche are stronge, ought to beare ye fraylnes of the weake, & not to stande in our owne conceiptes.
15:2Let euery man please his neygbour, in that that is good to edifiyng.
15:3For Christe pleased not him selfe. But as it is written: The rebukes of them which rebuked thee, fell on me.
15:4For whatsoeuer thynges haue ben written afore time, were written for our learnyng, that we through pacience and comfort of ye scriptures might haue hope.
15:5The God of pacience and consolation, graunt you to be lyke mynded one towardes another, after the ensample of Christe Iesu:
15:6That ye all agreeyng together, may with one mouth prayse God, and the father of our Lorde Iesus Christe.
15:7Wherfore, receaue ye one another, as Christe receaued vs, to ye prayse of God.
15:8And I say, that Iesus Christe was a minister of the circumcisio for the trueth of God, to confirme the promise [made] vnto the fathers:
15:9And that the gentiles myght prayse God for his mercie, as it is written: For this cause I wyll praise thee among the gentiles, and syng vnto thy name.
15:10And againe he saith: Reioyce ye gentiles with his people.
15:11And againe: praise the Lord al ye gentiles, & laude him al ye people together.
15:12And againe Esaias saith: There shalbe the roote of Iesse, and he that shall rise to raigne ouer the gentiles, in hym shall the gentiles trust.
15:13The God of hope, fyll you with al ioy and peace in beleuyng, that ye may be riche in hope, through the power of the holy ghost.
15:14I my selfe am perswaded of you my brethre, that ye also are full of goodnes, and fylled with all knowledge, able also to exhort one another.
15:15Neuerthelesse brethren, I haue somewhat more boldly written vnto you, to put you in remembraunce, through the grace that is geuen me of God,
15:16That I should be the minister of Iesus Christe, to the gentiles, and shoulde minister the Gospell of God, that the offeryng of the gentiles might be acceptable, and sanctified by the holy ghost.
15:17I haue therefore whereof I may reioyce through Christ Iesus, in those thynges which parteyne to God.
15:18For I dare not speake of any of those thinges which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the gentiles obedient with worde and deede,
15:19In myghtie signes and wonders, by the power of the spirite of God: so that from Hierusalem, & the coastes rounde about, vnto Illyricum, I haue fullye preached the Gospell of Christe.
15:20So haue I enforced my selfe to preach the Gospell, not where Christe was named, lest I shoulde haue buylt vpon an other mans foundation.
15:21But as it is written: To whom he was not spoken of, they shall see: and they that hearde not, shall vnderstande.
15:22For this cause I haue ben oft let, that I coulde not come vnto you.
15:23But nowe, seyng I haue no more to do in these countreys, and also haue ben desirous many yeres to come vnto you:
15:24Whensoeuer I take my iourney into Spayne, I wyll come to you: For I trust to see you in my iourney, and to be brought on my waye thytherwarde by you, after that I be somewhat fylled with you.
15:25But nowe go I vnto Hierusalem, to minister vnto the saintes.
15:26For it hath pleased them of Macedonia & Achaia to make a certaine comon gatheryng for the poore saintes whiche are at Hierusalem.
15:27It hath pleased them veryly, & their detters are they. For yf the gentiles be made partakers of their spirituall thynges, their duetie is to minister vnto the in carnall thynges.
15:28When I haue perfourmed this, and haue sealed to the this fruite, I wyll come by you into Spayne.
15:29And I am sure, that when I come vnto you, I shall come with aboundaunce of the blessyng of the Gospell of Christe.
15:30I beseche you brethren for ye Lorde Iesus Christes sake, and for the loue of the spirite, that ye helpe me in my busynesse with your prayers to God for me:
15:31That I may be delyuered from them which beleue not in Iurie, & that this my seruice which I haue at Hierusalem may be accepted of the saintes:
15:32That I may come vnto you with ioy, by the wyll of God, and may with you be refresshed.
15:33The God of peace be with you al. Ame.

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.
