Coverdale Bible 1535



11:1Therfore shalt thou loue the LORDE yi God, & kepe his comaundemetes, his ordinaunces, his lawes, & his preceptes all yi life loge.
11:2And vnderstode this daye, that which youre childre knowe not: Which haue not sene the nurtoure of the LORDE yor God, & his greatnesse, & his mightie hande, & his stretched out arme,
11:3& his tokens and actes which he dyd amonge the Egipcias, vnto Pharao the kynge of Egipte, & to all his londe,
11:4& what he dyd to the power of ye Egipcians, & vnto their horses & charettes, whan he broughte the waters of the reed see vpo them, as they folowed after you, & how ye LORDE hath broughte them to naught vnto this daye:
11:5& what he dyd vnto you in the wildernesse, vntyll ye came vnto this place:
11:6what he dyd vnto Dathan and Abiram the children of Eliab the sonne of Ruben, how the earth opened hir mouth and swalowed them with their housholdes & tetes all their good that they had in the myddes amonge all Israel.
11:7For youre eyes haue sene the greate workes of ye LORDE, which he hath done.
11:8Therfore shal ye kepe all the commaundementes which I commaunde you this daye, that ye maye be stronge to come in, and to conquere the londe, whither ye go to possesse it,
11:9& that ye maye lyue longe in the londe, which the LORDE sware vnto youre fathers, to geue vnto them and to their sede, eue a londe that floweth with mylke and hony:
11:10For the londe whither thou commest in, to possesse it, is not as the londe of Egipte, whence ye came out, where thou sowedest thy sede, and waterdest it at thy fote as a garden of herbes:
11:11but it hath hilles and valleys, which drynke water of the rayne of heauen,
11:12a londe that the LORDE thy God careth for. And the eyes of the LORDE thy God are allwaye therin from the begynnynge of the yeare vnto the ende,
11:13Yf ye shal herken therfore vnto my commaundementes, which I commaunde you this daye, yt ye loue the LORDE youre God, and serue him, with all youre hert and with all youre soule
11:14then wyl I geue rayne vnto youre lode in due season, early and late, that thou mayest gather in thy corne, thy wyne and thine oyle:
11:15and I wyll geue grasse vpon thy felde for thy catell, that ye maye eate & be fylled.
11:16But bewarre, yt youre hert be not disceaued, that ye go asyde, & serue other goddes, & worshipe them,
11:17and then the wrath of the LORDE waxe whote vpo you, and he shut vp the heaue, that there come no rayne, and the earth geue not hir increase, & ye perishe shortly from the good lode, which the LORDE hath geuen you.
11:18Put vp therfore these my wordes in youre hertes and in youre soules, and bynde the for a signe vpon youre handes, yt they maye be a token of remembraunce before yor eyes:
11:19and teach them youre children, so that thou talke therof, whan thou syttest in thine house, or walkest by the waye: whan thou lyest downe, and whan thou rysest vp:
11:20and wryte them vpon the postes of thine house, and vpon thy gates,
11:21that thou and thy children maye lyue longe in the londe, which the LORDE sware vnto thy fathers to geue them, as longe as the dayes of heauen endure vpon earth.
11:22For yf ye shal kepe all these commaundementes which I commaunde you, so that ye do therafter, that ye loue the LORDE youre God, and walke in all his wayes, and cleue vnto him,
11:23then shall the LORDE dryue out all these nacions before you, so that ye shall coquere greater and mightier nacions then ye youre selues are.
11:24All the places that the soles of youre fete treade vpon, shalbe yours, from the wyldernes, and fro mount Libanus, and from the water Euphrates vnto ye vttemost see shal youre coastes be.
11:25Noman shal be able to wtstonde you. The LORDE youre God shal let the feare and drede of you come vpon all ye londes wherin ye go, like as he hath promysed you.
11:26Beholde, I laye before you this daye the blessynge and the curse.
11:27The blessynge, yf ye be obedient vnto the commaundementes of the LORDE youre God, which I commaunde you this daye.
11:28The curse, yf ye wyl not be obedient to the commaundementes of the LORDE youre God, but turne out of the waye, which I comaunde you this daye, so that ye walke after other goddes, whom ye knowe not.
11:29Whan ye LORDE yi God hath broughte the in to the londe, whither thou commest in to possesse it, then shalt thou geue the blessynge vpon mount Grisim, and the curse vpon mount Ebal,
11:30which are beyonde Iordane the waye towarde the goinge downe of the Sonne, in the lode of the Cananites, which dwell in ye playne felde ouer agaynst Gilgal, besyde the Oke groue of More.
11:31For ye shal go ouer Iordane, that ye maye come in to take possession of the londe, which the LORDE youre God hath geuen you, to conquere it, and to dwell therin.
11:32Take hede now therfore, that ye do acordinge vnto all the ordinaunces and lawes, which I laye before you this daye.
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.
