The Great Bible 1539



12:1I beseche you therfore brethren, by the mercyfulnes of God, that ye make yor bodies a quycke sacryfice, holy & acceptable vnto God: which is youre resonable seruynge of God
12:2& fassyon not youre selues lyke vnto this worlde: but be ye chaunged in youre shape, by the renuyng of your mynde, that ye maye proue what thynge that good, and acceptable, and perfaycte wyll of God is.
12:3For I saye (thorowe the grace that vnto me geuen is) to euery man amonge you, that noman stonde hye in his owne conceate, more then it becommeth hym to esteme of him selfe: but so iudge of hym selfe, that he be gentle and sober, accordynge, as God hath dealte to euery man the measure of fayth.
12:4For as we haue many membres in one body, and all members haue not one office:
12:5so we beynge many, are one body in Chryst, and euery man among oure selues, one anothers members.
12:6Seynge that we haue diuers gyftes accordynge to the grace that is geuen vnto vs: yf eny man haue the gyft of prophesye, let him haue it that it be agreyng vnto the fayth.
12:7Let hym that hath an office wayte on his office. Let him that teacheth take hede to hys doctryne.
12:8Let hym that exhorteth, geue attendaunce to his exhortacion. If eny man geue, let hym do it with synglenes. Let hym that ruleth, do it wit diligence. If eny man shewe mercy, let hym do it with cherfulnes.
12:9Let loue be without dissimulacion Hate that which is euyll & cleaue vnto that which is good.
12:10Be kynd one to another wich brotherly loue. In geuynge honoure, go one before another.
12:11Be not slouthfull in the busynes which ye haue in hande. Be feruent in the sprete. Applye youre selues to the tyme.
12:12Reioyce in hope. Be pacient in tribulacion. Continue in prayer.
12:13Distribute vnto the necessite of the sayntes: be readie to harboure.
12:14Blesse them which persecute you: blesse (I saye) and course not.
12:15Be mery with them that are mery. Wepe also with them that wepe.
12:16Be of lyke affeccion one towardes another. Be not hye mynded: but make youre selues equall to them of the lower sorte. Be not wyse in youre awne opynyons.
12:17Recompence to no man euyll for euyll. Prouyde afore hande thynges honeste in the syght of all men.
12:18If it be possyble, (as moch as is in you) lyue peaceably with all men.
12:19Dearly beloued, auenge not youre selues, but rather geue place vnto wrath. For it is wrytten: vengeaunce is myne, I wyll rewarde, sayth the Lorde.
12:20Therfore, yf thyne enemy honger, fede him: yf he thyrst, geue hym dryncke. For in so doyng thou shalt heape coles of fyre on hys heade.
12:21Be not ouercome of euyll, but ouercome euyll, with goodnes:

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."
