Bishops Bible 1568



1:1God which in time past, at sundrie tymes, and in diuers maners, spake vnto the fathers in the prophetes:
1:2Hath in these last dayes, spoken vnto vs in the sonne, whom he hath appoynted heyre of all thynges, by whom also he made the worldes.
1:3Who beyng the bryghtnesse of the glorie, and the very image of his substaunce, vpholdyng all thynges with the worde of his power, hauing by him selfe pourged our sinnes, hath syt on the ryght hande of the maiestie on hye:
1:4Beyng so much more excellent then the Angels, as he hath by inheritaunce obtayned a more excellent name then they.
1:5For vnto which of the Angels sayde he at any tyme: Thou art my sonne, this day haue I begotten thee?
1:6And agayne, I wyll be to hym a father, and he shalbe to me a sonne? And agayne, when he bryngeth in the first begotten sonne into the worlde, he saith: And let all the Angels of God worship hym.
1:7And vnto the Angels he sayth: He maketh his Angels spirites, and his ministers a flambe of fyre.
1:8But vnto the sonne [he sayth] Thy seate O God, [shalbe] for euer and euer: The scepter of thy kyngdome [is] a scepter of ryghteousnesse.
1:9Thou hast loued ryghteousnesse, and hated iniquitie: Therfore God, euen thy God, hath annoynted thee with the oyle of gladnesse, aboue thy felowes.
1:10And thou Lorde, in the begynnyng hast layde the foundation of the earth: And the heauens are the workes of thy handes:
1:11They shall perishe, but thou endurest, and they shall waxe olde as doth a garment:
1:12And as a vesture shalt thou folde the vp, and they shalbe chaunged: but thou art the same, & thy yeres shall not fayle.
1:13But vnto which of ye Angels sayde he at any tyme: Sitte on my right hande, tyll I make thyne enemies thy foote stoole?
1:14Are they not all ministring spirites, sent foorth into ministerie for their sakes which shalbe heyres of saluation?

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.
