The Great Bible 1539



15:1Then resorted vnto him all the publicans and synners, for to heare him.
15:2And the Pharises and Scribes murmured, sayinge. He receaueth synners, and eateth with them.
15:3But he put forth this parable vnto them, saieng.
15:4What man of you hauynge an hundred shepe (yf he lose one of them) doth not leaue nynty and nyne in the wildernes, and go after that which is lost, vntill he fynde it?
15:5And when he hath founde it, he laieth it on his shulders with ioye.
15:6And assone as he cometh home, he calleth together his louers and neyghbours, saying vnto them: Reioyse with me for I haue founde my shepe, which was loost.
15:7I say vnto you, that like wyse ioye shalbe in heauen ouer one synner that repenteth, more then ouer nynty and nyne iuste persons, which nede no repentaunce.
15:8Ether what woman (hauynge ten grotes, yf she loose one) doth not light a candell, and swepe the housse, and seke diligently tyll she fynde it?
15:9And when she hath founde it, she calleth her louers and her neyghbours together, sayinge: Reioyce with me, for I haue founde the grote which I had lost.
15:10Likewyse I saye vnto you, shall ther be ioye in the presence of the angels of God, ouer one synner that repenteth.
15:11And he sayd: A certayne man had two sonnes,
15:12and the yonger of them sayde vnto the father: father, geue me the porcion of the goodes, that to me belongeth. And he deuided vnto them his substance.
15:13And not longe after, whan the yonger sonne had gathered all that he had together, he toke his iorney into a far countreye, and there he wasted his goodes with ryotous liuing.
15:14And when he had spent all, ther arose a greate derth in all that land, and he began to lacke,
15:15and went, and came to a citesyn of the same countre: and he sent him to his farme, to kepe swyne.
15:16And he wolde fayne haue fylled his bely with the coddes that the swyne dyd eate: & no man gaue vnto him.
15:17Then he came to him selfe, and sayd: how many hyred seruauntes at my fathers haue breed ynough? and I perishe with honger.
15:18I wyll aryse, and go to my father, and will saye vnto him: father, I haue synned agaynst heauen, and before the,
15:19& am no more worthy to be called thy sonne, make me as one of thy hyred seruauntes.
15:20And he arose, & came to his father. But when he was yet a greate waye of, his father sawe him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kyssed him.
15:21And the sonne sayde vnto him: father, I haue synned agaynst heauen, and in thy syght, & am nomore worthy to be called thy sonne.
15:22But the father sayd to his seruauntes: brynge forth the best garment, and put it on him, and put a rynge on his hande, and shoes on his fete.
15:23And brynge hyther that fatt caulfe, and kyll it, and let vs eate and be mery:
15:24for this my sonne was deed, and is alyue agayne, he was loste, and is founde. And they began to be merye.
15:25The elder brother was in the felde: and when he came and drewe nye to the housse, he herde mynstrelsy & daunsynge,
15:26and called one of his seruauntes, and asked, what those thynges meante.
15:27And he sayd vnto him: thy brother is come, and thy father hath kylled the fatt caulfe, because he hath receaued him safe and sounde.
15:28And he was angry, and wolde not go in. Then came hys father out, and entreated him.
15:29He answered and sayde to his father: Lo, these many yeares haue I done the seruice, nether brake at any tyme thy commaundement, and yet gauest thou me neuer a kid, to make mery with my frendes:
15:30but assone as this thy sonne was come (which hath deuoured thy goodes with harlotes) thou haste for his pleasure kylled the fatt caulfe.
15:31And he sayde vnto him: Sonne, thou art euer with me, and all that I haue is thyne:
15:32it was mete that we shulde make mery and be glad: for this thy brother was deed, and is alyue agayne: and was loste, and is founde.

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."
