The Great Bible 1539



5:1Rebuke not an elder, rygorously but exhorte him as a father: the yonger men, as brethren:
5:2the elder wemen, as mothers: the yonger as systers, wt all purenes.
5:3Honoure wyddowes, which are true wyddowes.
5:4If eny wyddow haue chyldren or nevews, let them learne fyrst to rule their awne houses godly & to recompense their elders. For that is good & acceptable before God.
5:5She that is a true wyddowe & frendelesse, putteth her trust in God, & contynueth in supplicacyons and prayers nyght & daye.
5:6But she that lyueth in pleasure, is deed, euen yet alyue.
5:7And these thynges commaunde that they maye be without rebuke.
5:8But yf eny prouide not for her awne (& specially for them of her housholde) the same hath denyed the fayth, and is worsse then an infydell.
5:9Let no wyddowe be chosen vnder threscore yere olde, & soch a one as was the wyfe of one man,
5:10and well reported of men in good workes: yf she haue brought vp chyldren, yf she haue lodged strangers, yf she haue wesshed the saynctes fete, yf she haue mynistred vnto them whych were in aduersytie, yf she haue bene contynually geuen vnto all maner of good worckes.
5:11The yonger wyddowes refuse. For when they haue begonne to were wanton agaynst Christ, they wyll mary,
5:12hauynge damnacyon, because they haue cast awaye their fyrst fayth.
5:13And also they learne to goo from house to house ydle: yee not ydle onely, but also tatlers and besybodyes, speakynge thynges which are not comly.
5:14I wyll therfore that the yonger wemen mary, to beare chyldren, to guyde the house, and geue none occasyon to the aduersary to speake euyll.
5:15For many of them are all ready turned backe, and are gone after Satan.
5:16And yf eny man or woman that beleueth haue wyddowes, let them mynyster vnto them, & let not the congregacyon be charged: that there maye be sufficyent for them that are wyddowes in dede.
5:17The elders that rule well, are worthy of double honoure, most specially they whych laboure in the worde & teachynge.
5:18For the scripture sayth: thou shalt not moosel the mouth of the oxe that treadeth out the corne. And the labourer is worthy of his reward.
5:19Agaynst an elder, receaue none accusacyon: but vnder two or thre witnesses.
5:20Then that synne, rebuke openly, that other also maye feare.
5:21I testifye before God and the Lord Iesus Christ & the electe angels, that thou obserue these thynges without hastynesse of iudgement, & do nothinge parcially.
5:22Laye handes sodenly on no man, nether be partaker of other mens synnes: kepe thy selfe pure.
5:23Dryncke no lenger water, but vse a lytell wyne for thy stommakes sake and thyne often dyseases.
5:24Some mennes synnes are open before hande, and go before vnto iudgement: & some mennes synnes folowe after.
5:25Lykewyse also good workes are manifest before hande, and they that are other wyse, cannot be hyd.

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."
