The Great Bible 1539



7:1Knowe ye not brethren (I speake to them that knowe the lawe) how that the lawe hath power ouer a man, as longe as it endureth.
7:2For the woman whych is in subiecyon to a man, is bounde by the lawe to the man, as longe as he lyueth. But yf the man be deed, she is loosed from the lawe of the man,
7:3So then yf whyle the man lyueth she couple her selfe with another man, she shalbe counted a wedlocke breaker. But yf the man be deed, she is fre from the lawe of the husband, so that she is no wedlocke breaker, though she couple her selfe with another man.
7:4Euen so ye also (my brethren) are deed concernynge the lawe by the body of Chryst, that ye shulde be coupled to another (I meane to him that is rysen agayne from deeth) that we shuld brynge forth frute vnto God.
7:5For when we were in the flesshe, the lustes of synne whych were stered vp by the lawe, raygned in oure members, to brynge forth frute vnto deeth.
7:6But now are we delyuered from the lawe, and deed vnto it wher vnto we were in bondage, that we shuld serue in a new conuersacyon of the sprete, and not in the olde conuersacyon of the letter.
7:7What shall we saye then? is the lawe synne? God forbyd: neuertheles I knew not synne, but by the lawe. For I had not knowne what lust had meant, excepte the lawe had sayd, thou shalt not lust.
7:8But synne toke an occasyon by the meanes of the commaundement and wrought in me all manner of concupiscence. For verely without the lawe, synne was deed.
7:9I once lyued wythout lawe. But when the commaundement came, synne reuiued, and I was deed.
7:10And the very same commaundement, whych was ordeyned vnto lyfe, was founde to be vnto me an occasyon of deeth.
7:11For synne toke occasyon by the meanes of the commaundement, and so disceaued me, & by the same slewe me.
7:12Wherfore the lawe is holy, and the commaundement holy, and iust and good.
7:13Was that then which was good, made deeth vnto me? God forbyd. Naye it was synne: that sinne might appeare (by it which was good) to worke deeth in me: that synne by the commaundement myght be out of measure synfull.
7:14For we knowe, that the lawe is spirituall: but I am carnall solde vnder synne,
7:15because I alowe not that whych I do. For what I wold, that do I not: but what I hate, that do I.
7:16If I do now that whych I wolde not, I consente vnto the lawe that it is good.
7:17So then now, it is not I that do it, but synne that dwelleth in me.
7:18For I knowe, that in me (that is to saye in my flesshe) dwelleth no good thinge. For, to wyll is present with me: but I fynde no meanes to performe that whych is good.
7:19For the good that I wolde, do I not: but the euyll whych I wolde not, that do I.
7:20Yf I do that I wolde not, then is it not I that do it, but synne that dwelleth in me.
7:21I fynde then by the lawe, that when I wolde do good, euyll is present wyth me.
7:22For I delyte in the lawe of God, after the inward man.
7:23But I se another lawe in my membres, rebellynge agaynst the lawe of my mynde, and subduynge me vnto the lawe of synne, whych is in my members.
7:24O wretched man that I am: who shall delyuer me from thys body subdued vnto deeth?
7:25I thanke God thorow Iesus Christ oure Lorde. So then, wyth the mynde I serue the lawe of God, but wyth the flesshe the lawe of synne.
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."
