|And Nadab and Abihu the sonnes of Aaron toke ether of them his censor, & put fyre therin, & put cens ther vpon, & offred straunge fyre before the Lord whych he commaunded them not,
|& there went a fyre out from the Lorde, and consumed them, & they dyed before the Lord.
|Then Moses sayde vnto Aaron: thys is it that the Lorde spake sayinge: I wyll be sanctifyed in them that come nye me and before all the people I wilbe glorifyed. And Aaron helde hys peace.
|And Moses called Misael and Elsapham the sonnes of Oziel the vncle of Aaron, and sayde vnto them: come on, carye youre brethren from the holy place out of the hoste.
|And they went to them, and caryed them in theyr albes out of the hoste, as Moses had sayde.
|And Moses sayde vnto Aaron and vnto Eleazar and Ithamar his sonnes vncouer not youre heedes, nether rent youre clothes, lest ye dye, and lest wrath come vpon all the people: But let youre brethren the hole housse of Israel bewepe the burnynge whych the Lord hath kyndled.
|And go not ye out from the dore of the tabernacle of wytnesse, lest ye dye: for the anoyntynge oyle of God is vpon you. And they dyd as Moses sayde.
|And the Lorde spake vnto Aaron, saying:
|Thou shalt not drincke wyne & stronge dryncke, thou and thy sonnes that are wyth the: when ye go into the tabernacle of wytnesse, lest ye dye. Let it be a lawe for euer thorowe out youre generacyons,
|and that ye may put difference betwene holy & vnholy, betwene vncleane & cleane,
|& that ye may teach the children of Israel all the statutes whych the Lorde hath spoken vnto them by the hande of Moses.
|And Moses sayde vnto Aaron and vnto Eleazar and Ithamar hys sonnes that were lefte: take the meatoffrynge that remayneth of the sacrifyces of the Lorde, and eate it wythout leuen besyde the alter, for it is most holy:
|ye shall eate it in the holy place, because it is thy dutye and thy sonnes dutye of the sacrifyces of the Lorde: for so I am commaunded.
|And the wauebrest and heueshoulder shall ye eate in a cleane place: thou and thy sonnes and thy daughters with the. For they be thy dutye and thy sonnes dutye geuen out of the peaceoffrynges of the chyldren of Israel.
|The heueshoulder and the wauebrest shall they brynge in wyth the sacryfyces of the fatt, to waue it before the Lorde, and it shalbe thyne and thy sonnes wyth the: by a lawe for euer, as the Lorde hath commaunded.
|And Moses sought the goate that was offred for synne, and se, it was burnt. And he was angrye with Eleazar and Ithamar the sonnes of Aaron, whyche were lefte alyue, sayinge:
|wherfore haue ye not eaten the synne offerynge in the holy place, seynge it is moost holye: and God hath geuen it you, to bere the synne of the congregacyon, to make agrement for them before the Lord?
|Beholde, the bloud of it was not brought in within the holy place. Ye shulde haue eaten it in the holy place, as I commaunded.
|And Aaron sayde vnto Moses: beholde, thys daye haue they offered theyr synneoffrynge and theyr burntoffrynge before the Lorde, and it is chaunced me after thys maner. And yf I had eaten the sacrifyce to daye, shulde it haue bene accepted in the syght of the Lorde?
|And when Moses hearde that, he was content.
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."
