The Great Bible 1539



14:1And it chaunsed, that he went into the house of one of the chefe Pharyses to eate breed on a Saboth daye: and they watched hym.
14:2And beholde, ther was a certayne man before him which had the dropsye.
14:3And Iesus answered and spake vnto the lawers and Pharyses, sayinge: is it laufull to heale on the Saboth daye?
14:4And they helde theyr peace. And he toke him and healed him, and let him go:
14:5and answered them, sayinge, which of you shall haue an asse or an oxe fallen into a pytt and wyll not strayght waye pull him out on the Saboth daye?
14:6And they coulde not answere him agayne to these thinges.
14:7He put forth also a symilitude to the gestes, when he marked how they preased to the hyest roumes, and sayde vnto them:
14:8When thou art bydden of anye man to a weddynge, syt not downe in the hyest rowme, lest a more honorable man then thou be bydden of him,
14:9and he (that bade him and the) come, and saye to the: geue this man rowme, and thou then beginne wt shame to take the lowest rowme.
14:10But rather when thou art bydden, go and syt in the lowest rowme: that when he that bade the, commeth, he maye saye vnto the: frende syt vp hyer. Then shalt thou haue worshipp in the presence of them that syt at meate with the.
14:11For whosoeuer exalteth him self, shalbe brought lowe. And he that humbleth hym selfe, shalbe exalted.
14:12Then sayde he also to hym, that had desired him to dyner: When thou makest a diner or a supper, call not thy frendes, nor thy brethren, nether thy kynsmen ner thy ryche neyghbours: lest they also bydde the agayne, and a recompence be made the.
14:13But when thou makest a feast, call the poore, the feble, the lame, and the blynde,
14:14& thou shalt be happy, for they can not recompence the But thou shalt be recompensed at the resurreccyon of the iuste men.
14:15When one of them (that sat at meate also) hearde these thynges, he sayd vnto him: happy is he that eateth bread in the kyngdome of God.
14:16Then sayde he vnto him. A certayne man ordened a greate supper, and bade many,
14:17and sent his seruaunt at supper tyme, to saye to them that were bydden, come: for all thinges are now ready.
14:18And they all atonce beganne to make excuse. The fyrst sayde vnto him: I haue bought a farme, and I must nedes go, & se it, I praye the haue me excused.
14:19And another sayde: I haue bought fyue yooke of oxen, and I go to proue them, I praye the, haue me excused.
14:20And another sayde: I haue maried a wyfe, and therfore I cannot come.
14:21And the seruaunt returned and brought his master worde agayne therof. Then was the good man of the house displeased, and sayde to his seruaunt: Goo out quickly into the stretes and quarters of the cytie, and bring in hyther the poore, and the feble, and the halt and the blynde.
14:22And the seruaunt sayd: Lorde, it is done as thou hast commaunded, and yet there is rowme.
14:23And the Lorde sayd to the seruaunt: Go out vnto the hye wayes and hedges, and compell them to come in, that my house maye be fylled,
14:24For I saye vnto you, that none of those men which were bydden, shall tast of my supper.
14:25Ther went a greate company with hym, and he turned, and sayd vnto them:
14:26If a man come to me, and hate not hys father and mother, and wyfe and chyldren, and brethren, and systers, yee, and his awne lyfe also, he cannot be my disciple.
14:27And whosoeuer doth not beare his crosse, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
14:28Which of you disposed to buylde a toure, sytteth not downe before, and counteth the cost, whether he haue sufficient to performe it?
14:29lest after he hath layde the foundacyon, and is not able to performe it, all that beholde it, begynne to mocke hym,
14:30sayinge: this man beganne to buylde, & was not able to make an ende?
14:31Or what kyng goinge to make batayle agaynst another kinge, sytteth not downe fyrst, and casteth in his mynde, whether he be able with ten thousande, to mete him, that commeth agaynst him with .xx. thousande?
14:32Or els while the other is yet a greate waye of he sendeth ambassatoures, and desireth peace.
14:33So lykewyse, whosoeuer he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.
14:34Salt is good, but yf salt haue loste the saltnes, what shal be seasoned ther with?
14:35It is nether good for the lande, nor yet for the donge hill, but men cast it out at the dores. He that hath eares to heare, let him heare.

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."
