The Great Bible 1539



3:1What preferment then hath the Iewe? or what aduauntageth circumcisyon?
3:2Surely verye moch. Fyrst because that vnto them were commytted the wordes of God.
3:3What then though some of them dyd not beleue? shall theyr vnbeleue make the promes of God without effecte?
3:4God forbyd Let God be true, and euery man a lyar, at it is wrytten: that thou myghtest be iustifyed in thy sayinges, and ouercome, when thou art iudged.
3:5But yf oure vnryghtewesnes make the ryghtewesnes of God more excellent: what shall we saye? Is God vnryghteous, which taketh vngeaunce? I speake after the maner of men:
3:6God forbyd. For how then shall God iudge the worlde?
3:7For yf the trueth of God appeare more excellent thorow my lye, vnto his prayse, why am I hence forth iudged as a synner:
3:8and not rather (as men speake euyll of vs, and as some affyrme that we saye) let vs do euyll, that good maye come therof. Whose damnacyon is iuste.
3:9What then? Are we better then they? No, in no wyse. For we haue all ready proued, how that both Iewes and Gentyls are all vnder synne,
3:10as it is wrytten. there is none ryghteous, no not one:
3:11there is none that vnderstandeth, there is none that seketh after God:
3:12they are all gone out of the waye, they are all vnprofytable, ther is none that doeth good, no not one.
3:13Theyr throte is an open sepulcre, with theyr tounges they haue disceaued: the poyson of aspes is vnder theyr lyppes.
3:14Whose mouth is full of curssynge and bytternes.
3:15Their fete are swyfte to shed bloud.
3:16Destruccyon and wretchednes are in theyr wayes,
3:17and the waye of peace haue they not knowen.
3:18There is no feare of God before theyr eyes.
3:19We knowe that what thynges soeuer the lawe sayth, it sayth it to them which are vnder the lawe. That all mouthes maye be stopped, & that all the worlde maye be subdued to God,
3:20because that by the dedes of the lawe ther shall no flesshe be iustifyed in hys syght. For by the lawe commeth the knowledge of sinne.
3:21But now is the ryghtewesnes of God declared wythout the lawe, for asmoch as it is alowed by the testimonye of the lawe and of the Prophetes.
3:22The ryghtewesnes of God, commeth by the fayth of Iesus Christ, vnto all and vpon all them that beleue. Ther is no dyfference:
3:23for all haue synned, and are destitute of the glorye of God:
3:24but are iustifyed frely by his grace, through the redempcyon that is in Christ Iesu,
3:25whom God hath set forth to be the obtayner of mercy thorow fayth, by the meanes of hys bloude, to declare hys ryghteousnes, in that he forgeueth the synnes that are passed, whych God dyd suffre,
3:26to shewe at thys tyme hys ryghtewesnes, that he might be counted iust, and the iustifyar of hym whych beleueth on Iesus.
3:27Where is then thy reioysynge? It is excluded. By what lawe? of workes? Naye: but by the lawe of fayth.
3:28Therfore we holde, that a man is iustifyed by fayth without the dedes of the lawe:
3:29Is he the God of the Iewes onely? Is he not also the God of the Gentyls? Yes, euen of the Gentyls also.
3:30For it is God only which iustifyeth the circumcisyon that is of fayth, and vncircumcisyon thorow fayth
3:31Do we then destroye the lawe thorow fayth? God forbyd. But we rather maintayne the lawe.
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."
