17:1And all the company of the chyldren of Israel thorowout their armies went from the wyldernes of Sin after the commaundement of the Lorde, and pytched in Raphidim: where was no water for the people to drincke.
17:2And the people chode with Moses, and sayde: geue vs water to drincke. Moses sayde vnto them: why chyde ye with me? wherfore do ye tempte the Lorde?
17:3There the people thirsted for water, and the people murmured agaynst Moses, & sayde: wherfore hast thou thus brought vs oute of Egipte: to kyll vs and oure chyldren and catell with thyrste?
17:4And Moses cryed vnto the Lorde, saying: what shall I do vnto thys people? they be allmoost ready to stone me.
17:5And the Lorde sayde vnto Moses: go before the people, and take wt the of the elders of Israel, & thy rod wherwith thou smotest the ryuer, take in thyne hande, and go.
17:6Beholde, I stonde before the besyde a rocke that is in Horeb: & thou shalt smyte the rocke, and there shall come water out therof, that the people maye dryncke. And Moses dyd euen so before the eyes of the elders of Israel.

17:10Iosua did as Moses bade hym, & foughte with Amalech. And Moses, and Aaron, & Hur went vp to the toppe of the hyll.
17:11And it happened, that when Moses helde vp his hande, Israel had the better. And when he late hys hande downe, Amalech had the better.
17:12But Moses handes were heuye, and therfore they toke a stone and put it vnder hym, and he satt downe there on. And Aaron and Hur stayed vp his handes, the one on the one syde and the other on the other syde. And hys handes remayned stedye vntyll the goynge downe of the sonne.
17:13And Iosua discomfeted Amalech and hys people, with the edge of the swerde.
17:14And the Lorde sayde vnto Moses: writte thys for a remembraunce in a boke, and commite it vnto the eares of Iosua, for I will vtterly put out the remembraunce of Amalech from vnder heauen.
17:15And Moses made an alter and called the name of it. The Lorde is he that worketh myracles for me.
17:16For he sayde: the hande is on the seate of God the Lorde wyll haue warre with Amalech from generacyon to generacyon.

The Great Bible 1539

The Great Bible of 1539 was the first authorized edition of the Bible in English, authorized by King Henry VIII of England to be read aloud in the church services of the Church of England. The Great Bible was prepared by Myles Coverdale, working under commission of Thomas, Lord Cromwell, Secretary to Henry VIII and Vicar General. In 1538, Cromwell directed the clergy to provide "one book of the bible of the largest volume in English, and the same set up in some convenient place within the said church that ye have care of, whereas your parishioners may most commodiously resort to the same and read it."
