16:3The stewarde sayde with in him selfe: what shall I do? for my Master taketh awaye from me the stewardeshypp. I cannot dygge, and to begge I am ashamed.
16:4I wote what to do, that when I am put out of the stewardship, they maye receaue me into their houses.
16:5So whan he had called all hys masters detters together, he sayde vnto the fyrst: how moch owest thou vnto my master?
16:6And he sayd: an hundred tonnes of oyle. And he sayde vnto him: take thy byll, & syt doune quyckly and wryte fyftye.
16:7Then sayd he to another: how moch owest thou? And he sayde: an hondred quarters of wheate. He sayde vnto him. Take thy byll, and wryte foure scoore.
16:8And the Lorde commended the vniust stewarde, because he had done wysly. For the chyldren of this worlde are in theyr nacion, wyser then the chyldren of lyght.
16:9And I saye vnto you: make you frendes of the vnryghteous mammon, that when ye shall haue nede they may receaue you into euerlastyng habitacyons.
16:10He that is faythfull in that which is least, is faythfull also in moch. And he that is vnryghteous in the least: is vnryghteous also in moch.

16:12And yf ye haue not bene faythfull in another mannes busynes, who shal geue you that which is your awne?
16:13No seruaunt can serue two masters: for ether he shall hate the one, and loue the other: or els he shall leane to the one, & despyse the other. Ye cannot serue God & mammon.
16:14All these thynges herde the Pharyses also, which were couetous, and they mocked him.
16:15And he sayd vnto them: Ye are they which iustifye youre selues before men: but God knoweth youre hertes. For that which is hyghlye estemed amonge men, is abhominable in the syght of God.
16:16The lawe and the Prophetes raygned vntyll Iohn: and sence that tyme, the kyngdome of God is preached, and euery man stryueth to go in.
16:17Easyer is it for heauen and erth to peryshe, then one tytle of the lawe to fayll.
16:18Whosoeuer forsaketh hys wyfe, and marieth another, committeth aduoutrye. And he which marieth her that is deuorsed from her husbande, committeth aduoutry also.
16:19Ther was a certayne ryche man, which was clothed in purple and fyne whyte, and fared deliciously euery dyae:
16:20And there was a certayne begger named Lazarus, which laye at his gate full of sores,
16:21desyrynge to be refresshed with the cromes, which fell from the ryche mannes borde. The dogges came also, and lycked his sores,
16:22And it fortuned, that the begger died, and was caryed by the angelles into Abrahams bosome. The riche man also dyed, and was buryed.
16:23And beynge in hell in tormentes, he lyfte vp hys eyes and sawe Abraham a farre of and Lazarus in hys bosome,
16:24and he cryed and sayde: father Abraham: haue mercy on me, and sende Lazarus, that he maye dyppe the typpe of hys fynger in water, and cole my tonge: for I am tormented in this flame.
16:25But Abraham sayde: Sonne remember that thou in thy lyfe tyme, receauedst thy pleasure, & contrary wyse, Lazarus receaued payne. But now is he conforted, and thou art punisshed.
16:26Beyonde all this, betwene vs and you ther is a greate space set, so that they which wolde go from hence to you, cannot: nether maye come from thence to vs.
16:27Then he sayd: I praye the therfore father, sende him to my fathers house.
16:28(For I haue fyue brethren) for to warne them, lest they also come into this place of tourment.
16:29Abraham sayde vnto him: they haue Moses and the Prophetes, let them heare them.

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."
