Coverdale Bible 1535



9:1And he called the twolue together, and gaue them power and auctorite ouer all deuels, and that they might heale diseases.
9:2And he sent the out to preach the kyngdome of God, and to heale ye sicke,
9:3and sayde vnto them: Ye shal take nothinge with you by the waye, nether staff, ner scryppe, ner bred, ner money: ner haue two coates.
9:4And into what house so euer ye entre, there abyde, tyll ye go thence.
9:5And who so euer receaue you not, departe out of the same cite, and shake of the dust from youre fete, for a wytnesse ouer them.
9:6And they departed, and wente thorow the townes, preachinge ye Gospell, & healynge euery where.
9:7Herode the Tetrarcha herde of all that was done by him. And he toke care, for so moch as it was sayde of some: Iho is rysen agayne from the deed:
9:8of some, Elias hath appeared: of some, One of the olde prophetes is rysen agayne.
9:9And Herode sayde: Iho haue I beheaded, who is this then, of who I heare soch thinges? And he desyred to se him.
9:10And the Apostles came agayne, and tolde him how greate thinges they had done. And he toke them to him, and wente asyde into a solytary place by the cite called Bethsaida.
9:11Whan the people knew of it, they folowed him. And he receaued them, and spake vnto them of the kyngdome of God, and healed soch as hade nede therof.
9:12But the daye beganne to go downe. Then came the twolue to him, and sayde vnto him: let the people departe fro the, that they maye go in to the townes rounde aboute, and in to ye vyllagies, where they maye fynde lodgynge & meate, for we are here in ye w
9:13But he sayde vnto them: Geue ye them to eate. They sayde: We haue nomore but fyue loaues and two fysshes. Excepte we shulde go & bye meate for so moch people
9:14(for there were vpon a fyue thousande men) But he sayde vnto his disciples: Cause them to syt downe by fifties in a copany.
9:15And they dyd so, and made them all to syt downe.
9:16Then toke he the fyue loaues and two fisshes, and loked vp towarde heaue, and sayde grace ouer them, brake them, and gaue them to the disciples, to set the before the people.
9:17And they ate, and were all satisfied. And there were taken vp of that remayned to them, twolue baskettes full of broken meate.
9:18And it fortuned whan he was alone, and at his prayer, and his disciples with him, he axed them, and sayde: Whom saye the people that I am?
9:19They answered, and sayde: They saye, thou art Ihon the baptist: Some, that thou art Elias: Some, that one of the olde prophetes is rysen agayne.
9:20But he sayde vnto them: Whom saye ye that I am? Then answered Peter and sayde: Thou art the Christ of God.
9:21And he charged them strately, and commaunded them, that they shulde tell this vnto no ma,
9:22and sayde: For the sonne of man must suffre many thinges, and be cast out of the Elders and of ye hye prestes, and scrybes, and be put to death, and ryse agayne the thirde daye.
9:23Then sayde he vnto them all: Yf eny ma wil folowe me, let hi denie himself, & take vp his crosse daylie, & folowe me.
9:24For who so euer wil saue his life, shal lose it. But who so loseth his life for my sake, shal saue it.
9:25For what auauntage hath a man, though he wanne the whole worlde, and loseth himself, or runneth in dammage of himself?
9:26Who so is ashamed of me and of my sayenges, of him shall the sonne of ma also be ashamed, whan he commeth in his glory, and in the glory of his father, and of the holy angels.
9:27I saye vnto you of a treuth: there be some of them that stonde here, which shall not taist of death, tyll they se the kyngdome of God.
9:28And it fortuned, that aboute an eight dayes after these wordes, he toke vnto him Peter, Ihon and Iames, and wente vp in to a mout for to praye.
9:29And as he prayed, the shappe of his countenaunce was chaunged of another fashion, and his garment was whyte, and shyned:
9:30and beholde, two men talked with him, Which were Moses and Elias,
9:31that appeared gloriously, and spake of his departynge, which he shulde fulfill at Ierusalem.
9:32As for Peter and them that were with him, they were full of slepe. But whan they awoke, they saw his glory, and the two men stondynge with him.
9:33And it chaunsed, whan they departed fro him, Peter sayde vnto Iesus: Master, here is good beynge for vs. Let vs make thre tabernacles: one for the, one for Moses, and one for Elias, and wyst not what he sayde.
9:34But whyle he thus spake, there came a cloude, and ouershadowed them. And they were afrayed, whan the cloude couered them.
9:35And out of the cloude there came a voyce, which sayde: This is my deare sonne, heare him.
9:36And whyle this voyce came to passe, they founde Iesus alone. And they kepte it close, and tolde no ma in those dayes eny of the thinges which they had sene.
9:37And it chaunsed on the nexte daye after, whan they came downe from the mount. moch people met him,
9:38and beholde, a man amonge the people cryed out, and sayde: Master, I beseke the, loke vpon my sonne, for he is my onely sonne:
9:39beholde, the sprete taketh him, and sodenly he crieth, and he teareth him, that he fometh, and with payne departeth he from him, whan he hath rente him. And
9:40I besought thy disciples to cast him out, and they coulde not.
9:41Then answered Iesus, and sayde: Oh thou vnfaithfull and croked generacion, how longe shal I be with you, & suffre you? Brynge hither thy sonne.
9:42And whan he came to him, the deuell rente him and tare him. But Iesus rebuked the foule sprete, and healed the chylde, and delyuered him vnto his father agayne.
9:43And they were all amased at the mighty power of God.And whyle they wondred euery one at all thinges which he dyd, he sayde vnto his disciples:
9:44Comprehende these sayenges in youre eares. For the sonne of man must be delyuered in to the hades of men.
9:45But they wyst not what that worde meaned, and it was hyd from them, that they vnderstode it not. And they were afrayed to axe him of that worde.
9:46There came a thought also amonge them, which of them shulde be the greatest.
9:47But wha Iesus sawe the thoughtes of their hert, he toke a childe, & set him harde by him,
9:48and sayde vnto them? Whosoeuer receaueth this childe in my name, receaueth me: and who so euer receaueth me, receaueth him that sent me. But who so is leest amoge you all, ye same shal be greate.
9:49Then answered Iho, and sayde: Master, we sawe one dryue out deuels in thy name, and we forbad him, for he folowed the not with vs.
9:50And Iesus saide vnto him: For byd him not, for he that is not agaynst vs, is for vs.
9:51And it fortuned whan the tyme was fulfylled that he shulde be receaued vp from hence, he turned his face to go straight to Ierusalem,
9:52and before him he sent messaungers, which wente their waye, and came into a towne of the Samaritans, to prepare lodginge for him.
9:53And they wolde not receaue him, because he had turned his face to go to Ierusale.
9:54But whan his disciples Iames and Ihon sawe that, they sayde: LORDE, wilt thou, that we commaunde, that fyre fall downe from heauen, and consume them, as Elias dyd?
9:55Neuertheles Iesus turned him aboute, and rebuked them, and sayde: Knowe ye not, what maner of sprete ye are of?
9:56The sonne of man is not come to destroye mens soules, but to saue them. And they wente in to another towne.
9:57And it fortuned as they went by the waye, one sayde vnto him: I wil folowe the, whyther so euer thou go.
9:58And Iesus sayde vnto him: The foxes haue holes, and the byrdes vnder the heaue haue nestes: but the sonne of man hath not wheron to laye his heade.
9:59And he sayde vnto another: Folowe me. He sayde: Syr, geue me leue first to go, and burye my father.
9:60But Iesus sayde vnto him: Let the deed burye their deed. But go thou thy waye, and preach the kyngdome of God.
9:61And another sayde: Syr, I will folowe the, but geue me leue first, to go byd them farwele, which are at home in my house.
9:62Iesus sayde vnto him: Who so putteth his hade to the plowe, and loketh backe, is not mete for the kingdome of God.
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.
