Geneva Bible 1560/1599



4:1And Iesus full of the holy Ghost returned from Iordan, and was led by that Spirit into the wildernes,
4:2And was there fourtie dayes tempted of the deuil, and in those dayes he did eate nothing: but when they were ended, he afterward was hungry.
4:3Then the deuil saide vnto him, If thou be the Sonne of God, commaund this stone that it be made bread.
4:4But Iesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not liue by bread only, but by euery word of God.
4:5Then the deuill tooke him vp into an high mountaine, and shewed him all the kingdomes of the world, in the twinkeling of an eye.
4:6And the deuill saide vnto him, All this power will I giue thee, and the glory of those kingdomes: for that is deliuered to mee: and to whomsoeuer I will, I giue it.
4:7If thou therefore wilt worship mee, they shalbe all thine.
4:8But Iesus answered him, and saide, Hence from mee, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him alone thou shalt serue.
4:9Then hee brought him to Hierusalem, and set him on a pinacle of the Temple, and said vnto him, If thou be the Sonne of God, cast thy selfe downe from hence,
4:10For it is written, That hee will giue his Angels charge ouer thee to keepe thee:
4:11And with their handes they shall lift thee vp, least at any time thou shouldest dash thy foote against a stone.
4:12And Iesus answered, and said vnto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
4:13And when the deuil had ended all the tentation, he departed from him for a litle season.
4:14And Iesus returned by the power of the spirite into Galile: and there went a fame of him throughout all the region round about.
4:15For he taught in their Synagogues, and was honoured of all men.
4:16And hee came to Nazareth where hee had bene brought vp, and (as his custome was) went into the Synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stoode vp to reade.
4:17And there was deliuered vnto him the booke of the Prophet Esaias: and when hee had opened the booke, hee founde the place, where it was written,
4:18The Spirit of the Lord is vpon mee, because he hath anoynted me, that I should preach the Gospel to the poore: he hath sent mee, that I should heale the broken hearted, that I should preach deliuerance to the captiues, and recouering of sight to the blinde, that I should set at libertie them that are bruised:
4:19And that I should preache the acceptable yeere of the Lord.
4:20And hee closed the booke, and gaue it againe to the minister, and sate downe: and the eyes of all that were in the Synagogue were fastened on him.
4:21Then he began to say vnto them, This day is the Scripture fulfilled in your eares.
4:22And all bare him witnes, and wondered at the gracious wordes, which proceeded out of his mouth, and said, Is not this Iosephs sonne?
4:23Then he said vnto them, Ye will surely say vnto mee this prouerbe, Physician, heale thy selfe: whatsoeuer we haue heard done in Capernaum, doe it here likewise in thine owne countrey.
4:24And he saide, Verely I say vnto you, No Prophet is accepted in his owne countrey.
4:25But I tell you of a trueth, many widowes were in Israel in the dayes of Elias, when heauen was shut three yeres and sixe moneths, when great famine was throughout all the land:
4:26But vnto none of them was Elias sent, saue into Sarepta, a citie of Sidon, vnto a certaine widowe.
4:27Also many lepers were in Israel, in the time of Eliseus the Prophet: yet none of them was made cleane, sauing Naaman the Syrian.
4:28Then all that were in the Synagogue, when they heard it, were filled with wrath,
4:29And rose vp, and thrust him out of the citie, and led him vnto the edge of the hil, whereon their citie was built, to cast him downe headlong.
4:30But he passed through the middes of them, and went his way,
4:31And came downe into Capernaum a citie of Galile, and there taught them on the Sabbath dayes.
4:32And they were astonied at his doctrine: for his worde was with authoritie.
4:33And in the Synagogue there was a man which had a spirit of an vncleane deuill, which cryed with a loude voyce,
4:34Saying, Oh, what haue we to doe with thee, thou Iesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy vs? I know who thou art, euen the holy one of God.
4:35And Iesus rebuked him, saying, Holde thy peace, and come out of him. Then the deuill throwing him in the middes of them, came out of him, and hurt him nothing at all.
4:36So feare came on them all, and they spake among themselues, saying, What thing is this: for with authoritie and power he commaundeth the foule spirits, and they come out?

4:44And hee preached in the Synagogues of Galile.
Geneva Bible 1560/1599

Geneva Bible 1560/1599

The Geneva Bible is one of the most influential and historically significant translations of the Bible into English, preceding the King James translation by 51 years. It was the primary Bible of 16th century Protestantism and was the Bible used by William Shakespeare, Oliver Cromwell, John Knox, John Donne, and John Bunyan. The language of the Geneva Bible was more forceful and vigorous and because of this, most readers strongly preferred this version at the time.

The Geneva Bible was produced by a group of English scholars who, fleeing from the reign of Queen Mary, had found refuge in Switzerland. During the reign of Queen Mary, no Bibles were printed in England, the English Bible was no longer used in churches and English Bibles already in churches were removed and burned. Mary was determined to return Britain to Roman Catholicism.

The first English Protestant to die during Mary's turbulent reign was John Rogers in 1555, who had been the editor of the Matthews Bible. At this time, hundreds of Protestants left England and headed for Geneva, a city which under the leadership of Calvin, had become the intellectual and spiritual capital of European Protestants.

One of these exiles was William Whittingham, a fellow of Christ Church at Oxford University, who had been a diplomat, a courtier, was much traveled and skilled in many languages including Greek and Hebrew. He eventually succeeded John Knox as the minister of the English congregation in Geneva. Whittingham went on to publish the 1560 Geneva Bible.

This version is significant because, it came with a variety of scriptural study guides and aids, which included verse citations that allow the reader to cross-reference one verse with numerous relevant verses in the rest of the Bible, introductions to each book of the Bible that acted to summarize all of the material that each book would cover, maps, tables, woodcut illustrations, indices, as well as other included features, all of which would eventually lead to the reputation of the Geneva Bible as history's very first study Bible.
