|And the Lorde called Moses, & spake vnto hym oute of the tabernacle of witnesse sayinge.
|Speake vnto the chyldren of Israel, and thou shalt saye vnto them. Yf a man of you brynge a sacrifyce vnto the Lorde, ye shall brynge youre sacrifyce from amonge these catell, euen from amonge the oxen and the shepe.
|Yf hys sacrifyce be a burntofferynge, let hym offre a male of the oxen without blemyshe, and brynge hym (of hys own voluntary wyll) vnto the dore of the Tabernacle of witnesse before the Lorde.
|And he shal put hys hande vpon the heade of the brent sacrifyce, and it shalbe accepted for him, to be hys attonement.
|And he shall kyll the calfe of the droue before the Lord. And the prestes Aarons sonnes, shall brynge the bloude, and sprynckle it rounde aboute vpon the altare, that is by the dore of the Tabernacle of witnesse.
|And then shall he slaye the burntofferynge, and hewe hym in peces.
|And the sonnes of Aaron the preaste shall put fyre vpon the altare,
|and put wodd vpon the fyre. And the preastes Aarons sonne shall laye the partes (euen the heade and the fatt) vpon the wodd that is on the fyre in the altare.
|But the inwardes and the legges ther of shall he wasshe in water, and the preast shall burne all in the altare, that they maye be a burnt sacrifyce for a swete odoure vnto the Lorde.
|And yf his sacrifyce be of the flockes (namely of the shepe or goates) let hym brynge a male without blemysh for a burntoffering.
|And let hym kyll it on the northsyde of the alter, before the Lorde. And the Preastes Aarons sonnes shall spryncle the bloude of it rounde aboute vpon the alter.
|And it shall be cut in peces: euen with hys heed and hys fatt, and the Preaste shall put them vpon the wodd that lyeth vpon the fyre in the alter.
|But he shall washe the inwardes and the legges with water, and the preste shall bringe all together, and burne it vpon the alter for a burntofferynge of a swete sauoure vnto the Lorde.
|If the burntofferynge for the sacrifyce of the Lorde be of the foules, he shal bring hys sacrifice of the turtill doues or of the yong pygeons.
|And the preaste shall brynge it vnto the alter, and wrynge the necke a sundre of it, and burne it on the alter. But the bloud therof shall runne oute vpon, by the syde of the alter.
|And he shal plucke awaye his croppe with hys fethers, and cast them besyde the alter on the easte parte in the place of asshes.
|And he shall breke the wynges of it, but plucke them not asundre. And the Preaste shall burne it vpon the alter, euen vpon the wodd that is vpon the fyre, that it maye be a burnt sacrifyce for a swete sauoure vnto the Lord.
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."
