The Great Bible 1539
|And the Lord spake vnto Moses after the deeth of the two sonnes of Aaron, when they offered before the Lorde, and dyed: And he sayde vnto Moses:
|speake vnto Aaron thy brother, that he come not at all tymes into the holy place wythin the vayle before the mercyseate, whych is vpon the arke, that he dye not. For I will appeare in the clowde vpon the mercyseate.
|But with thys thynge shall Aaron come into the holy place: euen wt a bullock for synne, and wyth a ram for a burntofferynge.
|He shall put the holy lynen albe vpon him, and shall haue a lynen breche vpon hys fleshe, and shall be gyrded wyth a lynen gyrdell, & put the lynen mytre vpon hys heede: These are holy garmentes: therfore shall he washe his fleshe in water, whan he doth put them on.
|And he shall take of the multitude of the chyldren of Israel, two he goates for synne, and a ram for a burntofferynge.
|And Aaron shall offer hys bullock for synne, and make an attonement for hym, and for hys house.
|And he shall take the two goates, and present them before the Lorde at the dore of the tabernacle of wytnesse.
|And Aaron shall cast lottes ouer the .ij. goates: one lotte shalbe for the Lorde, and the other for the scapegoate.
|And Aaron shall brynge the goote vpon whych the Lordes lotte fell, and offer hym for synne.
|But the goate on whych the lotte fell to scape, shall be sett alyue before the Lorde, to reconcyle wyth, and to let hym goo (as a scape goate) fre, into the wyldernesse.
|And Aaron shall brynge hys bullock for synne, and reconcyle for him selfe, and for hys house, and shall kyll hys bullock for synne.
|And he shall take a censer full of burnynge coles out of the alter before the Lord, and shall fyll hys handfull of swete cens, beaten small, and brynge them wythyn the vayle,
|and put the cens vpon the fyre before the Lorde: that the cloude of the cens maye couer the mercy seate that is vpon the wytnesse, and that he dye not.
|And he shall take of the bloude of the bullock, and sprynkle it wyth hys fynger vpon the mercyseate eastwarde: and before the mercyseate shall he sprynkle of the bloude wyth hys fynger seuen tymes.
|Then shall he kyll the goate that is the peoples synne offrynge, & brynge hys bloude wythin the vayle, & doo wyth that bloude, as he dyd wt the bloude of the bullock, sprynklynge it vpon the mercyseate, and before the mercyseate.
|And he shal reconcyle the holy place from the vnclennesses of the chyldren of Israel, and from their trespaces in all theyr synnes. And so shall he doo for the tabernacle of witnesse that is set amonge them, euen amonge their vnclennesses.
|And let there be no bodye in the tabernacle of wytnesse, when he goeth in to make an attonement in the holy place, vntyll he come out. And let hym make an attonement for hym selfe and for hys housholde, and for all the multitude of Israel.
|And he shall go out vnto the alter that is before the Lorde, & reconcyle vpon it, and shall take of the bloude of the bullock, and of the bloude of the goate, and put it vpon the hornes of the altare rounde aboute,
|and sprynckle of the bloude vpon it with his fynger seuen tymes, and clense it, and halowe it from the vnclennesses of the chyldren of Israel.
|And when he hath made an ende of reconcylinge the holy place, and the tabernacle of wytnesse, and the alter, he shall brynge the lyue goate:
|and Aaron shall put both hys handes vpon the heed of the lyue goate, and confesse ouer hym all the mysdeades of the chyldren of Israell, and all their trespaces, in all their synnes: puttynge them vpon the heed of the goate, and sende hym awaye (by the hande of a conuenient man) into the wyldernesse.
|And the goate shall bere vpon hym all theyr mysdeades vnto the wyldernesse, and he shall let the goate goo fre into the wyldernesse.
|And Aaron shall come into the Tabernacle of wytnesse, and put of the lynen clothes whych he put on (when he went in into the holy place) and leaue them there.
|And lett hym wasshe hys fleshe with water in the holy place, and put on hys owne rayment, and then come out, and offer hys burntoffrynge and the burntoffrynge of the people, and make an attonement for hym selfe and for the people,
|and the fatt of the synofferynge shall he burne vpon the alter.
|And he that caryed forth the goate to Azazell, shall wasshe hys clothes, and bathe hys fleshe in water, and then come into the hoste.
|And the bullock whych is for synne, and the goate that is for synne, (whose bloude was brought in, to clense the holy place) shall one carye out wythout the hoste to be burnt in the fyre, wyth theyr skynnes, their fleshe & their donge.
|And he that burneth them, shall wasshe hys clothes, and bathe hys fleshe in water, and then come into the hooste.
|And thys shalbe an ordinaunce for euer vnto you: that in the tenth daye of the seuenth moneth, ye humble youre soules, and do no worke at all: whether it be one of youre selues or a straunger that soiourneth amonge you,
|for that daye shall the prest make an attonement for you to clense you, and that ye maye be cleane from all youre synnes before the Lorde.
|Let it be a Sabboth of rest vnto you, and ye shall humble youre soules, by an ordinaunce for euer.
|And the Preaste that is anoynted, and whose hande was consecrated (to mynistre in hys fathers steade) shall make the attonement, and shall put on the lynen clothes & holy vestimentes,
|and reconcyle the holy sanctuary and the Tabernacle of wytnesse, and shall clense the alter, and make an attonement then for the preastes and for all the people of the congregacyon.
|And this shalbe an euerlastynge ordinaunce vnto you, that he make an attonement for the chyldren of Israel for all their synnes once a yere: & he dyd as the Lorde commaunded Moses.
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."
