The Great Bible 1539



20:1The Lorde also spake vnto Iosua sayinge:
20:2Speake to the children of Israel, and saye: Appointe out from amonge you cyties of refuge, wherof I spake vnto you by the hand of Moses,
20:3that the slear that killetth any person vnwares and vnwittinglye, maye flee thether. And those cyties shalbe youre refuge from the auenger of bloud.
20:4And he that doth flee vnto one of those cyties, shall stande at the entryng of the gate of the cytie, and shall shewe hys cause in the eares of the elders of the cytie. And they shall take him into the cytie vnto them, & geue hym a place, that he maye dwell amonge them.
20:5And yf the auenger of bloude folowe after him, they shall not deliuer the slear into his hande: because he smote his frende ignorantlye, and hated hym not before tyme.
20:6And he shall dwell in the sayde cytie vntill he stande before the congregation in Iudgement, and vntill the death of the hye preaste that shalbe in those dayes: for then shall the slear retourne, and come vnto his awne cytie, and vnto his awne house, and vnto the cytie from whence he fled.
20:7And they sanctified kedes in Galile, in mount Nephthali, and Sichem in mount Ephraim, and kiriatharbe (which is Hebron) in the mountaine of Iuda.
20:8And on the other syde Iordan ouer agaynst Iericho estwarde, they appointed Bozor in the wildernesse vpon the playne, out of the tribe of Ruben: & Ramoth in Gilead out of the trybe of Gad: and Gosan in Basan out of the trybe of Manasses.
20:9These were the cyties appoynted for all the children of Israell, and for the straunger that soiourned amonge them, that whosoeuer killed any person ignorantlye, the same might flee thether, & shulde not die by the hand of the auenger of bloude, vntill he stode before the congregacion.
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."
