8:1And the LORDE spake vnto Moses, & sayde:
8:2Take Aaron and his sonnes wt him, & their vestimentes, & the anoyntinge oyle, and a bullocke for a synofferynge, two rammes, and a maunde with vnleuended bred,
8:3and call the whole congregacion together, before the dore of the Tabernacle of wytnesse.
8:4Moses dyd as the LORDE commaunded him, and gathered the congregacion together vnto the dore of ye Tabernacle of wytnesse,
8:5and sayde vnto them: This is it, that the LORDE hath commaunded to do.
8:6And he toke Aaron and his sonnes, and wasshed them with water,
8:7and put the albe vpo him, and girde him with the girdell, and put vpon him the yalowe tunycle, and put the ouerbody cote vpon him, and girde him vpon the ouerbody cote,
8:8& put the brestlappe theron, and in ye brestlappe light and perfectnesse:
8:9And set the myter vpon his heade. And vpon the myter euen aboue his fore heade, put he a plate of golde on the holy crowne: as ye LORDE comaunded Moses.
8:10And Moses toke the anoyntinge oyle, & anoynted the Habitacion, and all that was therin, and consecrated it,
8:11and sprenkled therwith seue tymes vpon the altare, and anoynted the altare with all his vessels, the lauer with his fote, that it might be consecrated:
8:12and poured the anoyntinge oyle vpon Aarons heade, and anoynted him, yt he might be consecrated.
8:13And he brought Aarons sonnes, and put albes vpon them, and girde them with the girdle, and put bonettes vpon their heades, as the LORDE commaunded him.
8:14And he caused bringe a bullocke for a synoffrynge. And Aaron with his sonnes layed their handes vpon his heade,
8:15and then was he slayne. And Moses toke of the bloude, & put it vpon the homes of the altare rounde aboute with his fynger, and purified the altare, and poured the bloude vpon the botome of the altare, and consecrated it, that he might reconcyle it.
8:16And toke all the fat vpo the bowels, the nett vpon the leuer, and the two kydneys with the fat theron, and burned it vpon the altare.
8:17But the bullocke wt his skynne, flesh, & donge, burned he with fyre without the hoost, as the LORDE commaunded him.
8:18And he brought a ramme for a burntofferynge. And Aaron wt his sonnes layed their handes vpon his heade,
8:19& then was he slayne. And Moses sprenkled of ye bloude vpon the altare rounde aboute,
8:20hewed the ramme in peces, and burnt the heade, the peces, and the fatt.
8:21And wasshed the bowels and the legges with water, and so burnt ye whole ramme vpo the altare. This was a bruntofferynge for a swete sauoure, euen a sacrifice vnto the LORDE, as the LORDE commaunded him.
8:22He brought also the other ramme of the offerynge of the consecracion. And Aaron with his sonnes layed their hades vpon his heade,
8:23and then was it slayne. And Moses toke of his bloude, and put it vpon the typpe of Aarons right eare, and vpon the thombe of his right hande, and vpon the greate too of his right fote.
8:24And he brought Aarons sonnes, and put of the bloude vpon the typpe of the right eare of them, and vpon ye thombes of their righte handes, and vpon the greate toes of their righte fete, and poured the resydue of the bloude vpon the altare rounde aboute.
8:25And he toke the fat and the rompe, and all the fat vpon the bowels, and the nett vpon the leuer, the two kydneys with the fat theron, and the righte shulder.
8:26And out of the maunde of vnleuended bred before the LORDE, he toke an vnleueded cake, and a cake of oyled bred, and a wafer, and layed them vpo the fat, and vpon the right shulder,
8:27and put alltogether vpon the handes of Aaron and of his sonnes, and waued it for a Waueofferynge before the LORDE.
8:28And afterwarde toke he all agayne from their hondes, and burned them on the altare, euen vpon the burntofferinge: for it is an offerynge of consecracion for a swete sauoure, euen a sacrifice vnto ye LORDE.
8:29And Moses toke the brest, and waued it a Waueofferynge before the LORDE, of the ramme of the offerynge of consecracion: the same was Moses parte, as the LORDE commaunded Moses.
8:30And Moses toke of ye anoyntinge oyle, & of the bloude vpon the altare, & sprenkled it vpon Aaron & his vestimentes, vpon his sonnes & vpon their vestimentes, and so cosecrated Aaron & his vestimentes, his sonnes and their vestimentes with him.
8:31And he sayde vnto Aaron & his sonnes: Seeth ye flesh before the dore of the Tabernacle of wytnesse, & there eate it, & the bred in ye maunde of the cosecracion offeringes, as it is comaunded me, & sayde: Aaron & his sonnes shall eate it.
8:32As for yt which remayneth of the flesh & bred, ye shal burne it with fyre.
8:33And in seue dayes shall ye not departe from ye dore of the Tabernacle of wytnesse, vntyll the daye, yt the dayes of yor consecracion offerynges be at an ende: for seue dayes must yor handes be consecrated,
8:34as it is come to passe this daye: The LORDE hath comaunded to do it, that ye might be reconcyled.
8:35And ye shal tary before the Tabernacle of wytnesse daye and night seuen dayes longe, & shal kepe ye watch of ye LORDE, that ye dye not, for thus am I comaunded.
8:36And Aaron with his sonnes dyd all, that ye LORDE commaunded by Moses.
Coverdale Bible 1535

Coverdale Bible 1535

The Coverdale Bible, compiled by Myles Coverdale and published in 1535, was the first complete English translation of the Bible to contain both the Old and New Testament and translated from the original Hebrew and Greek. The later editions (folio and quarto) published in 1539 were the first complete Bibles printed in England. The 1539 folio edition carried the royal license and was, therefore, the first officially approved Bible translation in English.

Tyndale never had the satisfaction of completing his English Bible; but during his imprisonment, he may have learned that a complete translation, based largely upon his own, had actually been produced. The credit for this achievement, the first complete printed English Bible, is due to Miles Coverdale (1488-1569), afterward bishop of Exeter (1551-1553).

The details of its production are obscure. Coverdale met Tyndale in Hamburg, Germany in 1529, and is said to have assisted him in the translation of the Pentateuch. His own work was done under the patronage of Oliver Cromwell, who was anxious for the publication of an English Bible; and it was no doubt forwarded by the action of Convocation, which, under Archbishop Cranmer's leading, had petitioned in 1534 for the undertaking of such a work.

Coverdale's Bible was probably printed by Froschover in Zurich, Switzerland and was published at the end of 1535, with a dedication to Henry VIII. By this time, the conditions were more favorable to a Protestant Bible than they had been in 1525. Henry had finally broken with the Pope and had committed himself to the principle of an English Bible. Coverdale's work was accordingly tolerated by authority, and when the second edition of it appeared in 1537 (printed by an English printer, Nycolson of Southwark), it bore on its title-page the words, "Set forth with the King's most gracious license." In licensing Coverdale's translation, King Henry probably did not know how far he was sanctioning the work of Tyndale, which he had previously condemned.

In the New Testament, in particular, Tyndale's version is the basis of Coverdale's, and to a somewhat less extent this is also the case in the Pentateuch and Jonah; but Coverdale revised the work of his predecessor with the help of the Zurich German Bible of Zwingli and others (1524-1529), a Latin version by Pagninus, the Vulgate, and Luther. In his preface, he explicitly disclaims originality as a translator, and there is no sign that he made any noticeable use of the Greek and Hebrew; but he used the available Latin, German, and English versions with judgment. In the parts of the Old Testament which Tyndale had not published he appears to have translated mainly from the Zurich Bible. [Coverdale's Bible of 1535 was reprinted by Bagster, 1838.]

In one respect Coverdale's Bible was groundbreaking, namely, in the arrangement of the books of the. It is to Tyndale's example, no doubt, that the action of Coverdale is due. His Bible is divided into six parts -- (1) Pentateuch; (2) Joshua -- Esther; (3) Job -- "Solomon's Balettes" (i.e. Canticles); (4) Prophets; (5) "Apocrypha, the books and treatises which among the fathers of old are not reckoned to be of like authority with the other books of the Bible, neither are they found in the canon of the Hebrew"; (6) the New Testament. This represents the view generally taken by the Reformers, both in Germany and in England, and so far as concerns the English Bible, Coverdale's example was decisive.
