The Great Bible 1539
|The soule that wyll offer a meateofferynge vnto the Lorde, the same offerynge shalbe of fyne floure, and he shall poure oyle, vpon it, and put franckencens theron,
|and shall brynge it vnto Aarons sonnes the preastes. And he shall take therout his handfull of the floure, and of the oyle wyth all the franckencens, and the preaste shall burne it for a memoriall of hym vpon the alter: to be an offerynge for a swete sauoure vnto the Lorde.
|And the remnaunt of the meateofferynge shalbe Aarons and his sonnes, a thynge most holy of the sacrifyces of the Lorde:
|If thou bringe also a meatofferynge that is baken in the ouen, let it be a swete cake of fyne floure myngled with oyle, or an vnleuened wafer anoynted wt oyle.
|If thy meateofferynge be baken in the fryenge pan, it shalbe of swete floure myngled with oyle.
|And thou shalt mynce it small, & powre oyle theron, that it maye be a meateofferynge.
|And yf thy meateofferynge be a thynge broyled vpon the gredyren, let it be of floure myngled with oyle.
|And thou shalt brynge the meateofferynge (that is made of these thynges) vnto the Lorde, and shalt delyuer it vnto the preaste, that he maye offre it vpon the alter,
|and the preaste shall take of the meateofferynge a memoriall, and shal burne it vpon the alter: that it maye be a burntofferyng for a swete sauoure vnto the Lorde.
|And that whyche is lefte of the meatofferynge shall be Aarons and hys sonnes, It is a thynge most holy of the offerynges of the Lorde.
|All the meateofferynges which ye shall brynge vnto the Lord, shalbe made without leuen. For ye shal nether burne leuen nor honye in any offerynge of the Lorde:
|Notwithstandynge ye shall brynge the fyrstlynges of them vnto the Lorde: but they shall not come vpon the alter for a swete sauoure.
|All the meatofferynges also shalt thou season with salt: neyther shalt thou suffre the salt of the couenaunt of thy God to be lackynge from thy meateofferyng: but vpon all thyne offerynges thou shalt brynge salt.
|And if thou offre a meateofferynge of thy fyrst rype frutes vnto the Lorde, thou shalt offre for the meateofferynge of thy fyrst frutes, eares of corne dryed by the fyre, and corne beaten as meale.
|And thou shalt put oyle vpon it, and laye franckencens theron, that it maye be a meateofferynge.
|And the preaste shall burne parte of the beaten corne & parte of that oyle wyth all the franckencens, for a remembraunce. And it shalbe a sacrifyce vnto the Lorde.
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."
