The Great Bible 1539



14:1And these are the contreyes which the chyldren of Israell enhereted in the lande of Canaan, which Eleazer the preaste, and Iosua the sonne of Nun and the auncient heades of the trybes of the chyldren of Israell, distributed to them.
14:2By lotte they receaued their possessions as the Lorde commaunded by the hande of Moses, to geue vnto the nyne trybes, & vnto the halfe trybe.
14:3For Moses had geuen enheritaunce vnto two trybes and an halfe on the other syde Iordan. But vnto the Leuites he gaue none enheritaunce amonge them.
14:4For the children of Ioseph were two tribes, Manasses & Ephraim. And therfore they gaue no parte vnto the Leuites in the land, saue cyties to dwell in with the suburbes of the same, for their beastes and cattell.
14:5As the Lorde commaunded Moses: euen so the children of Israel did when they deuided the lande.
14:6And the children of Iuda came vnto Iosua in Gilgall. And Caleb the sonne of Iephune the kenesyte sayde vnto hym: thou wottest what the Lorde sayd vnto Moses the man of God, about my matter and thyne in Cades Barne.
14:7Fourty yeare olde was I when Moses the seruaunt of the Lorde sent me from Cades Barne to spie out the lande. And I brought hym worde agayne euen as it was in myne herte.
14:8Neuerthelesse my brethren that went vp wyth me, dyscouraged the herte of the people. And I folowed the Lorde God.
14:9And Moses sware the same daye, saying: the lande wheron thy fete haue troaden, shalbe thyne enheritaunce and thy chyldrens for euer, because thou hast folowed the Lorde God.
14:10And beholde, the Lorde hath kept me alyue (as he sayde) this fourtye and fyue yeares, euen sence the Lord spake this word vnto Moses, whyle the chyldren of Israell wanderyd in the wyldernesse. And now lo, I am this daye foure skore & fyue yere old:
14:11& yet am as stronge at this tyme, as I was when Moses sent me: looke how stronge I was then, so strong am I now whether I go to warre, or come agayne.
14:12Now therfore geue me thys mountayne wherof the Lorde spake in that daye, for thou herdest in that daye, how the Enakins are there, and the cities great & walled. Peraduenture the Lorde wilbe with me, & I shall he able to dryue them out, as the Lorde sayd.
14:13And Iosua blessed him, & gaue vnto Caleb the sonne of Iephune, Hebron to enheret.
14:14And Hebron therfore became the enheritaunce of Caleb the sonne of Iephune the kenesite, vnto thys daye: because he folowed the Lord God of Israell.
14:15And the name of Hebron was called in olde tyme, kariatharbe. For the same was a great man amonge the Enakims. And the lande ceased from warre.

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."
