The Great Bible 1539



5:1It came to passe that (whan the people preassed vpon him, to heare the word of God) he stode by the lake of Genezareth:
5:2and sawe two shyppes stande by the lake syde, but the fishermen were gone oute of them, and were wasshyng their nettes
5:3And he entred into one of the shyppes, (which perteyned to Simon) and prayed him that he wold thrust oute a lytell from the lande. And he sate downe, and taught the people out of the shyp.
5:4When he had lefte speakynge, he sayde vnto Simon: Launche out into the depe, and let slyppe youre nettes to make a draught.
5:5And Simon answered, and sayd vnto hym: Master, we haue laboured all night, and haue taken nothynge. Neuerthesse, at thy commaundement I wyll lose forth the net.
5:6And when they had this done, they in closed a greate multitude of fysshes. But theyr net brake,
5:7& they beckened to theyr felowes (which were in the other shyp) that they shulde come, and helpe them. And they came: and fylled both the shyppes, that they soncke agayne.
5:8When Simon Peter sawe thys, he fell downe at Iesus knees, saying: Lord, go from me, for I am a sinful man.
5:9For he was astonnyed & all that were with hym, at the draught of fysshes which they had taken:
5:10and so was also Iames and Iohn the sonnes of Zebede, which were parteners with Symon. And Iesus sayde vnto Symon: feare not, from hence forth thou shalt catche men.
5:11And they brought the shyppes to lande, and forsoke all, and folowed hym.
5:12And it fortuned that whan he was in a certen cytie: behold, ther was a man ful of leprosy, & when he had spyed Iesus, he fell flat on hys face, and besought him, saieng: Lord, yf thou wylt, thou canst make me clene.
5:13And he stretched forth his hand, and touched him saying: I will, be thou clene. And immediatly the leprosy departed from hym.
5:14And he charged him, that he shuld tell no man: but go (saith he) and shewe thy selfe to the preste, & offer for thy clensyng accordyng, as Moses commaunded, for a wytnes vnto them.
5:15But so moch the more went there a fame abrode of hym, and moch people came together to heare, & to be healed of hym from theyr infirmityes.
5:16And he kepte hym oute of the waye in the wildernesses, and gaue him selfe to prayer.
5:17And it happened on a certen daye: that he taught: and ther sate the Pharises and doctours of lawe, which were come out of all the townes of Galile and Iewrye, and Ierusalem. And the power of the Lord was present, to heale them.
5:18And behold, men brought in a bed, a man which was taken with a palsie: and they sought meanes to bring him in, and to laye him before hym.
5:19And when they coulde not fynde on what syde they myghte bring hym in (because of the prease) they went vp on the toppe of the house & let him downe thorowe the tylyng, beed and all, euen in the myddes before Iesus.
5:20When he sawe theyr fayth he sayd vnto him: man, thy synnes be forgeuen the,
5:21And the scribes and the pharises began to thincke, saying: What felowe is this, which speaketh blasphemye? who can forgeue synnes but God only?
5:22But when Iesus perceaued their thoughtes, he answered, and said vnto them: What thyncke ye in your hertes?
5:23Whether is easier to saye thy synnes be forgeuen the, or to saye: ryse vp, and walke.
5:24But that ye maye knowe that the sonne of man hath power to forgeue synne on earth, he sayd vnto the sycke of the palsye: I saye vnto the: aryse, take vp thy bed, and go vnto thy house.
5:25And immediatly he rose vp before them, and toke vp hys bedd, (wher on he laye) and departed to hys awne house, praysing God.
5:26And they were all amased, and they gaue the glory vnto God. And were fylled with feare, saying: We haue sene straunge thynges to daye.
5:27And after this, he went forth, and sawe a publican named Leuy, syttynge at the receyte of custome, & he sayd vnto him: folowe me.
5:28And he left all, and rose vp, and folowed him:
5:29And Leuy made hym a greate feaste in his awne house. And ther was a great companye of publicans and of other that sate at meate, with them.
5:30And the scribes and pharises murmured against his disciples, saying: Why do ye eate and drincke with publicans and sinners?
5:31And Iesus answered, and sayd vnto them: They that are whole, nede not the phisicion: but they that are sycke.
5:32I came not to call the ryghtewes, but synners to repentaunce.
5:33And they sayde vnto hym: Why do the disciples of Iohn fast often, and praye, & the disciples of the pharises also: but thyne eate and dryncke?
5:34He sayde vnto them: Can ye make the chyldren of the wedding fast, whyle the brydgrome is with them?
5:35The dayes wyll come, when the brydgrome also shalbe taken awaye from them: then shall they fast in those dayes.
5:36He spake also vnto them a similitude. No man putteth a pece of a newe garment, into an old vesture, for yf he do, then breaketh he the newe, and the pece that was taken out of the newe, agreeth not with the olde.
5:37And no man powreth newe wyne into olde bottels. For yf he do, the newe wyne wyll burst the bottels, and runne out it self, and the bottels shall perysh.
5:38But newe wyne must be put into newe bottels, and both are preserued.
5:39No man also that dryncketh old wyne, straight waye can awaye with newe: for he sayeth the olde is better.
The Great Bible 1539

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."
