The Great Bible 1539



11:1A certen man was syck, named Lazarus of Bethania the towne of Mary, and her syster Martha.
11:2It was that Mary which anoynted Iesus with oyntment, and wyped his fete wt her hear, whose brother Lazarus was sick.
11:3Therfore, his syster sent vnto him, saying: Lord, beholde, he whom thou louest, is sicke.
11:4Whan Iesus herd that, he sayde: this infirmitie is not vnto death: but for the prayse of God, that the sonne of God myght be praysed by the reason of it.
11:5Iesus loued Martha and her sister and Lazarus.
11:6Whan he had heard therfore, that he was sycke, he abode two dayes styll in the same place where he was.
11:7Then after that, sayd he to his disciples: let vs go into Iewry agayne.
11:8Hys disciples sayde vnto hym: Master, the Iewes lately sought to stone the, and wylt thou go thyther agayne?
11:9Iesus answered: are there not .xij. houres of the daye? If a man walke in the daye, he stombleth not, because he seeth the light of this worlde.
11:10But yf a man walke in the nyght, he stombleth, because there is no lyght in him.
11:11This sayd he, and after that he sayd vnto them: our frende Lazarus slepeth: but I go to wake him out of slep.
11:12Then said his disciples: Lord, yf he slepe, he shal do wel ynough.
11:13Howbeit, Iesus spake of his death: but they thought, that he had spoken of the naturall slepe.
11:14Then sayde Iesus vnto them playnely. Lazarus is deed,
11:15and I am glad for your sakes, that I was not there, because ye maye beleue. Neuertheles, let vs go vnto him.
11:16Then sayd Thomas (which is called Dydimus) vnto the disciples: lett vs also go, that we maye dye with hym.
11:17Then went Iesus, and founde that he had lyen in hys graue foure dayes allready.
11:18Bethanie was nye vnto Ierusalem, about fyftene furlonges of,
11:19and many of the Iewes came to Martha & Mary to comforte them ouer their brother.
11:20Martha assone as she heard that Iesus was commynge, went and met hym: but Mary sate styll in the house.
11:21Then sayd Martha vnto Iesus: Lord, yf thou haddest bene here, my brother had not dyed:
11:22neuerthelesse, nowe I knowe that whatsoeuer thou askest of God, God wyll geue it the.
11:23Iesus sayth vnto her: Thy brother shall ryse agayne.
11:24Martha sayeth vnto hym: I knowe that he shall ryse agayne in the resurreccyon at the last daye.
11:25Iesus sayth vnto her: I am the resurreccyon and the lyfe: He that beleueth on me, ye though he were deed, yet shall he lyue.
11:26And whosoeuer lyueth and beleueth on me, shall neuer dye: Beleuest thou this?
11:27She sayd vnto him: yee Lorde, I beleue that thou art Christ the sonne of God, which shuld come into the world.
11:28And assone as he had so sayde, she wente her waye, & called Mary her syster secretly, saying: The master is come, and calleth for the.
11:29Assone as she heard that, she arose quyckly, and came vnto him.
11:30Iesus was not yet come into the towne: but was in that place where Martha met hym.
11:31The Iewes then which were with her in the house and comforted her, (when they sawe Mary that she rose vp hastely, and went out) folowed her, saieng: She goeth vnto the graue, to wepe there.
11:32Then when Mary was come wher Iesus was, and sawe hym, she cometh nye vnto his fete, and sayth vnto him: Lorde, yf thou haddest bene here, my brother had not bene deed.
11:33When Iesus therfore sawe her wepe (and the Iewes also weping which came wt her) he groned in the sprete, and was troubled in him selfe,
11:34and sayde: Where haue ye layed him? They saye vnto him: Lorde, come, and se.
11:35And Iesus wept.
11:36Then sayd the Iewes Behold, howe he loued hym.
11:37And som of them sayde: coulde not he which opened the eyes of the blynde, haue made also, that this man shulde not haue dyed?
11:38Iesus therfore agayne groned in him self, and came to the graue. It was a caue, and a stone layde on it.
11:39Iesus sayd: take ye awaye the stone. Martha the sister of him that was deed, sayd vnhym: Lorde, by this tyme he styncketh. For he hath bene deed foure dayes.
11:40Iesus sayeth vnto her: Sayd I not vnto the, that yf thou dydest beleue, thou shuldest se the glorye of God?
11:41Then they toke awaye the stone from the place where he that had bene deed, was layde. And Iesus lyft vp his eyes, and sayd: Father, I thanke the, that thou hast hearde me.
11:42Howbeit, I knewe, that thou hearest me allwayes: but because of the people which stande by. I sayde it, that they maye beleue, that thou hast sent me.
11:43And when he thus had spoken, he cryed wt a loud voyce: Lazarus, come forth.
11:44And he that was deed, came forth, bounde hande & fote wt graue clothes, & his face was bound with a napkin. Iesus sayd vnto them: loose him, & let him go.
11:45Then many of the Iewes which came to Mary (and had sene the thynges which Iesus dyd) beleued on hym.
11:46But some of them went theyr wayes to the pharises, & tolde them what Iesus had done.
11:47Then gathered the hye prestes & the pharises a councel, & sayd: what do we? For this man doth many miracles.
11:48If we lett hym scape thus, al men will beleue on him, and the Romayns shall come, and take awaye both our rowme and the people.
11:49And one of them named Caiphas (being the hye preste that same yere) sayd vnto them: Ye perceaue nothynge at all, nor consyder,
11:50that it is expedient for vs, that one man dye for the people, and not that all the people perysshe.
11:51Thys spake he not of him selfe, but beynge hye preste that same yere, he prophesied that Iesus shulde dye for the people,
11:52and not for the people onely, but that he shuld gather together in one, the children of God, that were scatered abrode.
11:53Then from that daye forth they toke councel together, for to put him to death.
11:54Iesus therfore walked nomore openly among the Iewes: but went his waye thence vnto a countre nye to a wildernes, into a cytie which is called Ephraim, and there contynued wt his disciples.
11:55And the Iewes Easter was nye at hand, & many went out of the countre vp to Ierusalem before the Easter, to purify them selues.
11:56Then sought they for Iesus, & spake among them selues, as they stode in the temple: What thinke ye, seyng he commeth not to the feaste daye?
11:57The hye prestes and pharises had geuen a commaundement, that yf eny man knewe wher he were, he shuld shewe it, that they myght take him.
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."
