Bishops Bible 1568



1:1Paul an Apostle of Iesus Christe by the wyll of God, according to the promise of lyfe, which is in Christ Iesus,
1:2To Timothie a beloued sonne: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the father, and Christe Iesus our Lorde.
1:3I thanke God whom I worshippe from [my] forefathers in pure conscience, that without ceassyng I haue remembrauce of thee in my prayers night & day
1:4Desiryng to see thee, myndefull of thy teares: that I may be fylled with ioy.
1:5When I call to remembraunce the vnfaigned fayth that is in thee, whiche dwelt first in thy graundmother Lois, and in thy mother Eunica: and I am assured that [it dwelleth] in thee also.
1:6Wherfore I put thee in remebraunce that thou stirre vp the gyft of God, which is in thee by the puttyng on of my handes.
1:7For God hath not geuen to vs the spirite of feare: but of power, and of loue, and of a sounde mynde.
1:8Be not thou therfore ashamed of the testimonie of our Lorde, neither of me his prisoner: but suffer thou aduersitie with the Gospell, accordyng to the power of God,
1:9Who hath saued vs, & called vs with an holy callyng, not accordyng to our workes: but accordyng to his owne purpose and grace, which was geuen vs in Christe Iesus, before the world began:
1:10But is nowe made manifest by the appearyng of our sauiour Iesus Christ, who hath put away death, and hath brought life and immortalitie vnto light through the Gospell:
1:11Wherunto I am appoynted, a preacher and Apostle, and a teacher of the gentiles:
1:12For the which cause I also suffer these thynges. Neuerthelesse, I am not ashamed: For I knowe whom I haue beleued, and I am perswaded that he is able to kepe that which I haue committed to hym, agaynst that day.
1:13See thou haue the paterne of wholesome wordes, which thou hast hearde of me in fayth & loue, [that is] in Christe Iesus.
1:14That good thyng which was committed to thy keping, holde fast through the holy ghost which dwelleth in vs.
1:15This thou knowest, that all they which are in Asia, be turned from me: of who are Phygellus & Hermogenes.
1:16The Lorde geue mercie vnto ye house of Onesiphorus, for he oft refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chayne.
1:17But whe he was in Rome, he sought me out very diligently, and founde [me].
1:18The Lorde graunt vnto hym, that he may fynde mercie with the Lorde in that day: And in howe many thynges he ministred vnto me at Ephesus, thou knowest very well.

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.
