|And it fortuned that in the eight daye, Moses called Aaron and hys sonnes, and the elders of Israel:
|and sayde vnto Aaron: take the a calfe, a yonge one out of the droue, for synne, & a ram for a burntoffrynge: both wythout blemysh, and brynge them before the Lorde.
|And vnto the chyldren of Israel thou shalt speake, sayinge: take ye an he goote for synne, & a calfe and a lambe bothe two of a yeare olde, wythout blemysh for a burnt sacrifyce,
|and an oxe and a Ram for peaceoffrynges, to offer before the Lord, and a meateoffrynge myngled with oyle, for to daye the Lord will appere vnto you.
|And they brought that (which Moses commaunded) before the tabernacle of wytnesse, and all the congregacyon came and stode before the Lord.
|And Moses sayd: this is the thing, whych the Lorde commaunded that ye shulde do: and the glorye of the Lorde shall appeare vnto you.
|And Moses sayde vnto Aaron: go vnto the alter and offer thy sacrifyce for synne, and make an attonement for the and for the people: & thou shalt offer the offrynge of the people, to reconcyle them, as the Lorde commaunded.
|Aaron therfore went vnto the alter, and slewe the calfe whych he had for synne.
|And the sonnes of Aaron broughte the bloude vnto hym, and he dypte hys fynger in the bloude, and put it vpon the hornes of the alter, and powred the bloude vnto the botome of the alter.
|But the fatt and the two kydneyes and the abundaunce of the lyuer of the synne offrynge, he burnt vpon the alter, as the Lorde commaunded Moses:
|The fleshe and the hyde, he burnt wyth fyre without the hoste.
|And he slewe the burnt offrynge and Aarons sonnes brought vnto hym the bloude, whych he sprynkled rounde about vpon the alter.
|And they brought the burntoffrynge vnto hym with the peces therof, and the head: and he burnt it vpon the alter,
|and dyd wasshe the inwardes and the legges, and burnt them vpon the burntoffrynge in the alter.
|And then he broughte the peoples offryng, takinge the goote that the people had for the sacrifyce of synne, and slewe it and offered it for synne, as he dyd the fyrst.
|And brought the burntoffrynge, and offered it as the maner was
|and brought the meatoffrynge, and fylled hys hande therof, and burnt it vpon the alter, besyde the burntsacrifice of the mornynge.
|He slewe also the oxe & the Ram for the peace offrynge, that the people had for them selues: and Aarons sonnes brought vnto hym the bloude, whych he sprynkled vpon the alter rounde about,
|and toke the fatt of the oxe and of the Ram, the roumpe, and the fatt that couereth the inwardes and the kydneyes & the abundaunce of the lyuer:
|and they put the fatt vpon the brestes, and he burnt the fatt vpon the alter:
|but the brestes and the ryght shoulders Aaron waued for a waueoffrynge before the Lorde, as the Lord commaunded Moses.
|And Aaron lyfte vp hys hande ouer the people, and blessed them, and came doune from offrynge of the synne offringe, burntoffringes & peace offrynges.
|And Moses & Aaron went in to the tabernacle of witnesse, & came out, and blessed the people, and the glorye of the Lorde appered vnto all the people.
|And there came a fyre out from before the Lorde, & consumed vpon the alter the burntoffryng & the fatt. Whych whan all the people sawe, they gaue thankes, and felle on theyr faces.
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."
