The Great Bible 1539



1:1In the begynnynge was the worde, and the worde was wyth God: and God was the worde.
1:2The same was in the begynnyng wyth God.
1:3All thinges were made by it, & wythout it, was made nothynge that was made.
1:4In it was lyfe, and the lyfe was the lyght of men,
1:5and the lyght shyneth in darcknes, and the darcknes comprehended it not.
1:6There was sent from God a man, whose name was Iohn.
1:7The same cam as a wytnes to beare wytnes of the lyght, that all men through hym myght beleue.
1:8He was not the lyght: but was sent to beare wytnes of the lyght.
1:9That lyght was the true lyght, whych lyghteth euery man that cometh into the worlde.
1:10He was in the worlde, and the worlde was made by hym: and the worlde knewe hym not.
1:11He cam amonge hys awne, and hys awne receaued him not.
1:12But as many as receaued hym to them gaue he power to be the sonnes of God: euen them that beleued on hys name:
1:13whych were borne, not of bloude nor of the wyll of the flesshe, nor yet of the wyll of man: but of God.
1:14And the same worde became flesshe, and dwelt amonge vs: and we sawe the glory of it, as the glory of the onely begotten sonne of the father, full of grace and trueth.
1:15Iohn beareth wytnes of hym, and cryeth sayinge: Thys was he of whom I spake: which though he came after me, went before me, for he was before me.
1:16And of hys fulnes haue all we receaued, euen grace for grace.
1:17For the lawe was geuen by Moses, but grace & trueth came by Iesus Christ.
1:18No man hath sene God at eny tyme. The onely begotten sonne, whych is in the bosome of the father, he hath declared hym.
1:19And thys is the recorde of Iohn: when the Iewes sent Prestes and Leuites from Ierusalem, to aske hym, what art thou?
1:20And he confessed & denyed not, & sayde playnly. I am not Chryst.
1:21And they asked him: what then? art thou Helyas? And he sayeth: I am not. Arte thou that Prophete? And he answered no.
1:22Then sayde they vnto hym: what art thou, that we maye geue an answer to them that sent vs. What sayest thou of thy selfe?
1:23He sayde I am the voyce of a criar in the wildernes, make strayght the waye of the Lorde, as sayde the Prophete Esaias.
1:24And they whych were sent, were of the Pharyses:
1:25And they asked him, & sayde vnto him: why baptisest thou then, yf thou be not Christ, nor Helias, nether that Prophet?
1:26Iohn answered them sayinge I baptise with water: but there stondeth one amonge you, whom ye knowe not,
1:27he it is which though he came after me, was before me, whose sho latchet I am not worthy to vnlose.
1:28These thynges were done in Bethabara beyonde Iordan where Iohn dyd baptise.
1:29The nexte daye, Iohn seeth Iesus comminge vnto hym, and sayeth beholde the lambe of God, whych taketh awaye the synne of the worlde.
1:30Thys is he of whom I sayd: After me cometh a man, whych went before me, for he was before me,
1:31and I knewe him not: but that he shuld be declared to Israell, therfore am I come baptysinge with water.
1:32And Iohn bare recorde, sayinge: I sawe the sprete descende from heauen, lyke vnto a doue, & abode vpon him,
1:33and I knewe hym not. But he that sent me to baptise in water, the same sayde vnto me: vpon whom thou shalt se the sprete descende, and tary styll on hym, the same is he whych baptiseth wyth the holy goost.
1:34And I sawe, and bare recorde, that he is the sonne of God.
1:35The nexte daye after, Iohn stode agayne, & two of his disciples,
1:36and he behelde Iesus as he walked by, & sayeth: beholde the lambe of God.
1:37And the two disciples hearde hym speake, and they folowed Iesus.
1:38And Iesus turned about, and sawe them folowe hym, & sayeth vnto them: what seke ye? They sayd vnto hym: Rabbi (whych is to saye yf one interprete it Master) where dwellest thou?
1:39He sayeth vnto them: come & se. They came, & sawe where he dwelt: & abode with hym that daye. For it was about the tenth houre.
1:40One of the two which hearde Iohn speake, and folowed him, was Andrew Simon Peters brother.
1:41The same founde hys brother Simon fyrst, and sayeth vnto him: we haue founde Messias (whych is by interpretacion, annoynted)
1:42and brought him to Iesus. And Iesus behelde hym, and sayde: thou art Simon the sonne of Ionas, thou shalt be called Cephas: which is by interpretacion a stone.
1:43The daye folowyng. Iesus wolde go into Galile, and founde Philip, and sayeth vnto him: folowe me
1:44Philip was of Bethsaida the citie of Andrew and Peter.
1:45Philip founde Nathanael, and sayeth vnto him: We haue founde hym, of whome Moses in the lawe and the Prophetes dyd wryte, Iesus the sonne of Ioseph of Nazareth.
1:46And Nathanael sayd vnto him can there eny good thynge come out of Nazareth? Philip sayeth vnto him come and se.
1:47Iesus sawe Nathanael comynge to him, & sayeth of him: Beholde a ryght Israelyte, in whom is no gyle.
1:48Nathanael sayeth vnto him: whence knowest thou me? Iesus answered, and sayde vnto him. Before that Philip called the, when thou wast vnder the fygge tree, I sawe the.
1:49Nathanael answered and sayd vnto him: Rabbi, thou art euen the very sonne of God, thou art the kyng of Israel.
1:50Iesus answered, and sayde vnto him: Because I sayde vnto the, I sawe the vnder the fygge tree, thou beleuest. Thou shalt se greater thynges then these.
1:51And he sayeth vnto him: Uerely, verely, I saye vnto you: herafter shall ye se heauen open, & the angels of God ascendynge & descendynge ouer the sonne of man.
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."
