The Great Bible 1539



1:1Paul an Apostle of Iesus Christ, by the commyssyon of God our sauyour, & Lord Iesus Christ, which is our hope.
1:2Unto Timothe hys naturall sonne in the fayth. Grace mercy and peace from God oure father, & from the Lord Iesus Christ our Lorde.
1:3As I besought the to abyde styll at Ephesus (when I departed into Macedonia) euen so do, that thou commaunde some, that they folowe no straunge doctrine,
1:4nether geue hede to fables & endles genealogyes whych brede doubtes more then Godlye edifyinge, which is by fayth
1:5for the ende of the commaundement is, loue out of a pure herte, and of a good conscience, and of fayth vnfayned: from the whych thynges,
1:6because some haue erred, they are turned vnto vayne iangelynge,
1:7because they wolde be doctours of the lawe, and yet vnderstande not what they speake, nether wherof they affyrme.
1:8We knowe, that the lawe is good, yf a man vse it lawfully:
1:9knowynge thys, howe that the lawe is not geuen vnto a ryghteous man, but vnto the vnryghteous and disobedyent, to the vngodly and to synners, to vnholy and vncleane: to murtherers of fathers and murtherers of mothers, to manstears,
1:10to whormongers: to them that defyle them selues whyth mankynde: to manstealers: to lyars, to periured, and yf ther be eny other thynge that is contrary to the holsome doctryne,
1:11accordynge to the Gospell of the glory of the blessed God, whych Gospell is commytted vnto me.
1:12And I thanke Chryst Iesus oure Lorde, whych hath made me stronge: for he counted me true, and put me in offyce
1:13where as before I was a blasphemer, and a persecuter, & a Tyraunt. But yet I obtayned mercy, because I dyd it ignorauntly thorowe vnbelefe.
1:14Neuerthelesse, the grace of oure Lorde was exceadynge aboundaunt with fayth and loue, whych is by Christ Iesu.
1:15This is a true sayinge (and by all meanes worthy to be receaued of vs) that Chryst Iesus came into the worlde, to saue synners, of whom I am chefe.
1:16Not wythstandynge for this cause optayned I mercy, that Iesus Christ shulde fyrst shewe on me all longe pacience, to declare an ensample vnto them which shulde beleue on him vnto eternall lyfe.
1:17So then vnto God, kynge euerlastynge, immortall inuisyble, wyse onely, be honoure and prayse for euer and euer. Amen.
1:18Thys commaundement commyt I vnto the sonne Timotheus accordynge to the prophesyes, whych in tyme past were prophesyed of the, that thou in them shuldest fyght a good fyght,
1:19hauynge fayth and good conscyence: whych some haue put awaye from them, and as concernynge fayth haue made shypwracke.
1:20Of whose nombre is Hymeneus and Alexander whom I haue delyuered vnto Satan, that they maye lerne not to blaspheme.

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."
