6:13The they gathered, and fylled twolue baskettes with the broke meate, that remayned of the fyue barlye loaues, vnto them which had eaten.
6:14Now whan the men sawe the token yt Iesus dyd, they saide: This is of a trueth the Prophet, yt shulde come into the worlde.
6:15Whan Iesus now perceaued that they wolde come, and take him vp, to make him kynge, he gat him awaye agayne in to a mountayne himself alone.

6:19Now whan they had rowed vpo a fyue and twetie or thirtie furlonges, they sawe Iesus goinge vpon the see, and came nye to the shippe. And they were afrayed.
6:20But he sayde vnto them: It is I, be not afrayed.
6:21Then wolde they haue receaued him in to ye shippe. And immediatly ye shippe was at the londe whither they wente.
6:22The nexte daye after, the people which stode on the other syde of the see, sawe that there was none other shippe there saue that one, wherin to his disciples were entred: and that Iesus wete not in with his disciples in to the shippe, but yt his discip

6:24Now whan the people sawe that Iesus was not there, nether his disciples, they toke shippe also, and came to Capernaum, and sought Iesus.
6:25And whan they founde him on the other syde of the see, they sayde vnto him: Master, whan camest thou hither?
6:26Iesus answered the, & sayde: Verely verely I saye vnto you: Ye seke me not because ye sawe ye tokes, but because ye ate of the loaues, and were fylled.
6:27Laboure not for the meate which perisheth but yt endureth vnto euerlastinge life, which the sonne of ma shal geue you: For him hath God the father sealed.
6:28The sayde they vnto him: What shal we do, that we maye worke ye workes of God?
6:29Iesus answered, and sayde vnto the: This is the worke of God, that ye beleue on him, whom he hath sent.
6:30Then sayde they vnto him: What token doest thou the, that we maye se and beleue ye? What workest thou?
6:31Oure fathers ate Mana in the wyldernesse, as it is wrytte: He gaue the bred fro heauen to eate.
6:32Then sayde Iesus vnto the: Verely verely I saye vnto you: Moses gaue you not bred from heaue, but my father geueth you the true bred from heauen:
6:33For this is that bred of God, which commeth from heauen, and geueth life vnto the worlde.
6:34The sayde they vnto him: Syr, geue vs allwaye soch bred.
6:35But Iesus sayde vnto the: I am yt bred of life. He that cometh vnto me, shal not huger: & he that beleueth on me, shal neuer thyrst.
6:36But I haue sayde vnto you, yt ye haue sene me, and yet ye beleue not.
6:37All that my father geueth me, cometh vnto me: and who so cometh vnto me, him wyl not I cast out:
6:38for I am come downe from heaue, not to do myne awne wyll, but the wyll of him that hath sent me.
6:39This is ye will of the father, which hath sent me, that of all that he hath geue me, I shulde lose nothinge, but shulde rayse it vp agayne at the last daye.
6:40This is the wyl of him which hath sent me, that, who soeuer seyth the sonne and beleueth on him, haue euerlastinge life, and I shal rayse him vp at the last daye.
6:41The murmured the Iewes ther ouer, that he sayde: I am yt bred which is come downe from heaue,
6:42and they sayde: Is not this Iesus, Iosephs sonne, whose father and mother we knowe? How sayeth he then, I am come downe from heauen?
6:43Iesus answered, and sayde vnto them: Murmur not amonge youre selues.
6:44No man can come vnto me, excepte the father which hath sent me, drawe him. And I shal rayse him vp at the last daye.
6:45It is wrytten in the prophetes: They shal all be taught of God. Who so euer now heareth it of the father, and lerneth it, commeth vnto me.
6:46Not that eny man hath sene the father, saue he which is of the father, the same hath sene the father.
6:47Verely verely I saye vnto you: He that beleueth on me, hath euerlastinge life.
6:48I am that bred of life.
6:49Youre fathers ate Manna in the wyldernes, and are deed.
6:50This is that bred which commeth from heauen, that who so eateth therof, shulde not dye.
6:51I am that lyuynge bred, which came downe fro heauen: Who so eateth of this bred, shal lyue for euer. And the bred that I wil geue, is my flesh which I wil geue for ye life of the worlde.
6:52Then stroue the Iewes amonge them selues, and sayde: How ca this folowe geue vs his flesh to eate?
6:53Iesus sayde vnto the: Verely verely I saye vnto you: Excepte ye eate ye flesh of ye sonne of man and drynke his bloude, ye haue no life in you.
6:54Who so eateth my flesh, and drynketh my bloude, hath euerlastinge life: and I shal rayse him vp at the last daye.
6:55For my flesh is ye very meate, and my bloude is ye very drynke.
6:56Who so eateth my flesh, and drynketh my bloude, abydeth in me, and I in him.
6:57As the lyuynge father hath sent me, and I lyue for the fathers sake: Euen so he that eateth me, shall lyue for my sake.
6:58This is ye bred which is come fro heauen: Not as youre fathers ate Manna, and are deed. He that eateth of this bred, shal lyue for euer.
6:59These thinges sayde he in the synagoge, wha he taught at Capernaum.
6:60Many now of his disciples that herde this, sayde: This is an harde sayenge, who maye abyde the hearynge of it?
6:61But whan Iesus perceaued in hi self, that his discipes murmured ther at he sayde vnto them: Doth this offende you?
6:62What and yf ye shal se the sonne of man ascende vp thither, where he was afore?
6:63It is ye sprete that quyckeneth, ye flesh profiteth nothinge. The wordes that I speake, are sprete, and are life.
6:64But there are some amoge you, that beleue not. For Iesus knewe well from the begynnynge, which they were that beleued not, and who shulde betraye him.
6:65And he sayde: Therfore haue I sayde vnto you: No man can come vnto me, excepte it be geuen him of my father.
6:66From that tyme forth, many of his disciples wente backe, and walked nomore with him.
6:67Then sayde Iesus vnto the twolue: Wyll ye also go awaye?
6:68Then answered Simon Peter: LORDE, Whither shal we go? Thou hast the wordes of euerlastinge life:
6:69and we haue beleued & knowne, that thou art Christ the sonne of the lyuynge God.
6:70Iesus answered them. Haue I not chosen you twolue, and one of you is a deuell?
6:71But he spake of Iudas Symon Iscarioth: the same betrayed him afterwarde, and was one of the twolue.
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.
