The Great Bible 1539



12:1Then Iesus (syxe dayes before Easter) came to Bethany, wher Lazarus had ben deed, whome he raysed from death.
12:2Ther they made hym a supper, and Martha serued, but Lazarus was one of them that sate at the table wt him.
12:3Then toke Mary a pound of oyntment (called Nardus, perfecte and precious) and anoynted Iesus fete, and wyped his fete with her hear, & the house was fylled with the odoure of the oyntment.
12:4Then sayd one of his disciples: (euen Iudas Iscarioth Simons sonne, which afterward betrayed him)
12:5why was not this oyntement solde for thre hundred pence, and geuen to the poore?
12:6This he sayd, not that he cared for the pore but because he was a thefe, and had the bagge, & bare that which was geuen.
12:7Then sayd Iesus: Let her alone, against the daye of my buryinge hath she kept this.
12:8For the poore allwayes shall ye haue with you, but me haue ye not allwaye.
12:9Moche people of the Iewes therfore had knowledge that he was ther. And they came not for Iesus sake onely, but that they myghte se Lazarus also whom he raysed from death.
12:10But the hye prestes helde a councell, that they myght put Lazarus to death also,
12:11because that for his sake many of the Iewes went awaye and beleued on Iesus.
12:12On the next daye moch people that were come to the feaste, when they hearde that Iesus shuld come to Ierusalem,
12:13toke braunches of palme trees, and went forth to mete hym, and cryed: Hosanna, blessed is he that in the name of the Lorde, commeth Kyng of Israell.
12:14And Iesus got a yonge asse, and sate theron, as it is wryten:
12:15feare not daughter of Syon, beholde, thy Kynge commeth, sytting on an asses colte.
12:16These thinges vnderstode not his disciples at the fyrst: but when Iesus was glorifyed, then remembred they that soch thinges were wryten of him, and that soche thynges they had done vnto hym.
12:17The people that was with hym (when he called Lazarus out of his graue, and raysed hym from death) bare recorde.
12:18Therfore mete hym the people also, because they hearde that he had done soche a miracle.
12:19The pharises therfore sayd among them selues: perceaue ye, howe we preuayle nothing? behold, worlde goeth after him.
12:20Ther were certen Grekes amonge them, that came to worshyp at the feaste:
12:21the same cam therfore to Philip (which was of Bethsaida a cytie in Galile) and desyred hym, saying: Syr, we wolde fayne se Iesus.
12:22Philip came and tolde Andrew. And agayne Andrew and Philip told Iesus.
12:23And Iesus answered them, sayinge: the houre is come, that the sonne of man must be glorifyed.
12:24Uerely verely, I saye vnto you except the wheat corne fall into the ground, & dye, it bydeth alone. If it dye, it bryngeth forth moch frute.
12:25He that loueth hys lyfe, shall destroye it: and he that hateth hys lyfe in thys world, shal kepe it vnto lyfe eternall.
12:26If eny man mynister vnto me, lett him folowe me: and Where I am, there shall also my minister be. Yf any man mynister vnto me, hym will my father honoure.
12:27Nowe is my soule troubled, and what shall I saye? Father, delyuer me from this houre: but therfore came I vnto thys houre.
12:28Father, glorify thy name. Then cam ther a voyce from heauen, saying: I haue both glorifyed it, & will glorify it agayne.
12:29The people therfore that stode by and heard it, sayde, that it thoundred. Other sayde: an angell spake to hym.
12:30Iesus answered and sayde: this voyce came not because of me but for your sakes.
12:31Now is the iudgment of this worlde: now shall the prince of thys worlde be cast out.
12:32And I (yf I were lyft vp from the erth) will drawe all men vnto me.
12:33Thys he sayde signifyinge, what death he shulde dye.
12:34The people answered hym: We haue heard out of the lawe, that Christ bydeth euer, and how sayst thou: the sonne of man must be lyft vp? who is that sonne of man?
12:35Then Iesus sayd vnto them: yet a lytell whyle is the lyght with you. Walke whyle ye haue lyght, lest the darcknes come on you. He that walketh also in the darck, woteth not whyther he goet
12:36Whyle ye haue lyght, beleue on the lyght, that ye maye be the children of the lyght. These thynges spake Iesus, and departed, and hid him self from them.
12:37But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet beleued not they on hym,
12:38that the sayinge of Esaias the prophet myght be fulfylled, which he spake: Lord, who shal beleue our saying? And to whom is the arme of the Lorde declared?
12:39Therfore could they not beleue, because that Esaias saith agayne:
12:40he hath blynded their eyes, and hardened their hert, that they shuld not se with their eyes, & lest they shuld vnderstand with their hert, and shuld be conuerted, and I shulde heale them.
12:41Soch thynges sayd Esaias, when he sawe his glorye, & spake of him.
12:42Neuertheles, amonge the chefe rulers also, many beleued on hym. But (because of the pharises) they wold not be a knowen of it, lest they shulde be excommunicat.
12:43For they loued the prayse of men, more then the prayse of God.
12:44Iesus cryed, and sayd: he that beleueth on me, beleueth not on me, but on hym that sent me.
12:45And he that seeth me, seeth him that sent me.
12:46I am come a lyght into the worlde: that whosoeuer beleueth on me, shulde not byde in darcknes.
12:47And yf any man heare my wordes, and beleue not, I iudge him not. For I came not to iudge the world: but to saue the worlde.
12:48He that refuseth me, & receaueth not my wordes, hath one that iudgeth hym. The worde that I haue spoken, the same shal iudge hym in the last daye.
12:49For I haue not spoken of my selfe: but the father which sent me: he gaue me a commaundment, what I shuld saye, & what I shulde speake.
12:50And I knowe that his commaundement is lyfe euerlastinge. Whatsoeuer I speake therfore, euen as the father bade me, so I speake.

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."
