Bishops Bible 1568



3:1Furthermore brethren, praye ye for vs, that the worde of the Lord may haue free passage and be glorified, euen as with you:
3:2And that we may be delyuered from disordered and euyll men: For all men haue not fayth.
3:3But the Lorde is faythfull, whiche shall stablyshe you, and kepe you from euyll.
3:4And we haue confidence in the Lorde to youwarde, that ye both do, and wyll do the thynges whiche we commaunde you.
3:5And the Lorde guyde your heartes to the loue of God, and to the pacient waytyng for Christe.
3:6We commaunde you brethren in the name of our Lorde Iesus Christe, that ye withdrawe your selues from euery brother that walketh inordinately, and not after the institution whiche he receaued of vs.
3:7For ye your selues knowe howe ye ought to folowe vs: For we behaued not our selues inordinately among you,
3:8Neither toke we breade of any man for nought: but wrought with labour and sweat nyght and daye, because we woulde not be chargeable to any of you.
3:9Not but that we had auctoritie, but to make our selues an ensample vnto you to folowe vs.
3:10For when we were with you, this we warned you of: that yf any woulde not worke, the same shoulde not eate.
3:11For we haue heard that there are some which walke among you inordinately, workyng not at all, but be busy bodies.
3:12Them that are such, we commaunde and exhort by our Lorde Iesus Christ, that they workyng in quietnesse, eate their owne breade.
3:13And ye brethren, be not weery in well doyng.
3:14Yf any man obey not our doctrine, signifie hym by an epistle, and haue no companie with hym, that he maye be ashamed.
3:15Yet count him not as an enemie, but warne hym as a brother.
3:16Nowe the very Lorde of peace geue you peace alwayes, by all meanes. The Lorde be with you all.
3:17The salutation of me Paul with mine owne hande. This is the token in euery epistle. So I write.
3:18The grace of our Lord Iesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

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.
