The Great Bible 1539



20:1And the children of Israel came wt the whole multitude into the deserte of Sin in the fyrst moneth, and the people abode at Cades. And there dyed MirIam, and was buryed there.
20:2But there was no water for the multitude, and they gathered them selues together agaynst Moses & Aaron.
20:3And the people chode with Moses, and spake, sayinge: wolde God that we had perysshed, when oure brethren dyed before the Lorde.
20:4Why haue ye brought the congregacyon of the Lorde vnto thys wyldernesse, that both we and oure catell shulde dye in it?
20:5Wherfore haue ye made vs to go oute of Egypte, to brynge vs into this vngracious place, which is no place of seed nor of fygges nor vynes, nor of pomgranates, nether is there any water to drynke?
20:6And Moses and Aaron went from the congregacyon vnto the dore of the tabernacle of witnesse, and fell vpon theyr faces. And the glory of the Lorde appered vnto them.
20:7And the Lorde spake vnto Moses sayinge:
20:8take the rodd, and gether thou and thy brother Aaron the congregacyon together, and speake vnto the rocke before theyr eyes, and it shall geue forth hys water. And thou shalt brynge them water out of the rocke, to geue the company dryncke, and theyr beastes also.
20:9And Moses toke the rodd from before the Lorde, as he commaunded hym.
20:10And Moses & Aaron gethered the congregacyon together before the rocke: and Moses sayde vnto them: heare ye rebellyons, must we fett you water oute of thys rocke?
20:11And Moses lyfte vp hys hande, and with hys rodd he smote the rocke two tymes, and the water came oute aboundantly, and the multitude drancke and theyr beastes also.
20:12And the Lorde spake vnto Moses & Aaron: because ye beleued me not, to sanctifye me in the eyes of the chyldren of Israel, therfore ye shall not brynge thys congregacyon into the lande whyche I haue geuen them.
20:13Thys is the water of stryffe, because the chyldren of Israel stroue with the Lorde, & he was sanctifyed in them.
20:14And Moses sent messengers from Cades vnto the kynge of Edom. Thus sayeth thy brother Israel: Thou knowest all the trauell that hath happened vs,
20:15Oure fathers went doune into Egpte, and we haue dwelt in Egypte a longe tyme, and the Egypcians vexed vs & oure fathers.
20:16And whan we cryed vnto the Lorde, he herde oure voyce, and sent an angell, and hath fett vs vp out of Egypt. And beholde, we are in Cades, euen in the vttermost cyte of thy border.
20:17We wyll go now thorow thy countre: but we will not go thorowe the feldes or vyneyardes, nether wyll we dryncke of the water of the fountaynes, we wyll go by the kynges hye waye, and nether turne vnto the ryghte hande nor to the lefte, vntyll we be past thy countre.
20:18And Edom answered hym. Thou shalt not go by me, lest I come out agaynst the with the swerde.
20:19The chyldren of Israel sayde vnto hym: we wyll go by the beaten waye: and yf I and my catell drynke of thy water, I wyll paye for it I wyll but onely (without any harme) go thorowe on my fete.
20:20He answered. Thou shalt not go thorowe. And Edom came oute agaynst hym with moche people, and wyth a myghtie power.
20:21And thus Edom denied to geue Israel passage thorow his countre: wherfore Israel turned awaye from hym.
20:22And the chyldren of Israel departed from Cades, and came vnto mount Hor wyth all the congregacyon.
20:23And the Lorde spake vnto Moses and Aaron in mount Hor, harde by the coaste of the londe of Edom sayinge:
20:24Aaron shall be gathered vnto hys people, for he shall not come into the lande whych I haue geuen vnto the chyldren of Israel: because ye disobeyed my mouth at the water of stryffe.
20:25Take Aaron and Eleazar his sonne, and brynge them vp into mount Hor,
20:26and thou shalt strype Aaron out of hys vestimentes, and put them vpon Eleazar hys sonne, and Aaron shalbe gathered vnto hys people and shall dye there.
20:27And Moses dyd as the Lorde commaunded: and they went vp into mount Hor in the syghte of all the multitude.
20:28And Moses toke of Aarons clothes, and put them vpon Eleazar hys sonne and Aaron dyed there in the toppe of the mount.
20:29And Moses and Eleazar came doune oute of the mount. Whan all the multytude sawe that Aaron was deed, they mourned for Aaron thyrtye dayes, thorowe oute all the housholdes of Israel.

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."
