Bishops Bible 1568



3:1This is] a faithful saying: Yf a man desire ye office of a bishop, he desireth a good worke.
3:2A bishop therfore must be blamelesse, the husband of one wyfe, watchyng, sober, comely apparelled, a louer of hospitalitie, apt to teache,
3:3Not geuen to ouermuch wine, no striker, not greedy of fylthy lucre: but gentle, abhorryng fyghtyng, abhorryng couetousnesse:
3:4One that ruleth well his owne house, hauyng chyldren in subiection, with all grauitie.
3:5For yf a man knowe not to rule his owne house, howe shall he care for the Churche of God?
3:6Not a young scoler, lest he, beyng puffed vp, fall into the condempnation of the deuyll.
3:7He must also haue a good report of the which are without, lest he fall into the rebuke and snare of the deuyll.
3:8Likewise must ye ministers be graue, not double tongued, not geuen to much wine, neither greedy of fylthy lucre:
3:9Holdyng the misterie of the fayth in a pure conscience.
3:10And let them first be proued, then let them minister, beyng blamelesse.
3:11Euen so must their wyues be graue, not euyll speakers, sober, faythfull in all thynges.
3:12Let the deacons be the husbandes of one wife, and such as can rule their children well, and their owne housholdes.
3:13For they that haue ministred well, get them selues a good degree, and great libertie in the fayth [whiche is] in Christe Iesus.
3:14These thynges write I vnto thee, hopyng to come shortly vnto thee:
3:15But yf I tary long, that thou mayest knowe howe thou oughtest to behaue thy selfe in the house of God, whiche is the Church of the lyuyng God, the pyller and grounde of trueth.
3:16And without doubt, great is that misterie of godlynesse: God was shewed in the flesshe, was iustified in the spirite, was seene among the angels, was preached vnto the gentiles, was beleued on in the worlde, and was receaued vp in glorie.

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.
