13:1And the chyldren of Israell began agayne to commytte wyckednes in the sight of the Lord. And the Lord delyuered them into the handes of the Philistines fourty yere.
13:2And ther was a man in Zaraah of the kynred of Dan, named Manoah, whose wyfe was barren, and bare not.
13:3And the Aungell of the Lorde apeared vnto the woman: and sayde vnto her: Beholde, thou art barren, and bearest not: But thou shalt conceaue, & beare a sonne.
13:4And now beware that thou drinke no wyne. ner strong drincke, nether eate any vncleane thing:
13:5for se, thou shalt conceaue and beare a sonne. And there may no rasor come on hys heed. For the ladd shalbe an abstayner vnto God, euen from his byrth. And he shall begynne to delyuer Israell out of the handes of the Phylistines.
13:6Then the wyfe came, & tolde her husband sayenge: a man of God came vnto me, & the fassion of him was lyke the fassion of an Angell of God, excedyng fearfull. But I asked hym not whence he was, nether tolde he me hys name, but sayd vnto me:
13:7beholde, thou shalt be with childe & beere a sonne, and now drincke no wyne nor strong dryncke, nether eate any vncleane thyng: for the ladd shalbe an abstayner to God, euen from hys byrth, to the daye of hys death.
13:8Then Manoah made intercessyon to the Lorde, and sayde: I praye the my Lorde, lett the man of God whych thou sendest, come once moare vnto vs, and teache vs what we shal do vnto the ladd, when he is borne.
13:9And God hearde the voyce of Manoah, and the angell of God came agayne vnto the wyfe as she sat in the felde. But Manoah her husband was not with her.
13:10And the wyfe made hast, and ranne, and shewed her husbande, & sayde vnto hym: Beholde, the man apeared vnto me, that came vnto me to daye.
13:11And Manoah arose, and went after hys wyfe, and came to the man, and sayde vnto him: art thou the man that spakest vnto my wyfe? And he sayde: I am.
13:12Manoah sayde: now when thy saieng is come to passe: what shalbe the maner of the childe, and what shall he do?
13:13And the angell of the Lorde sayd vnto Manoah: thy wyfe must absteyne from all that I sayde vnto her:
13:14she maye eate of nothyng that cometh of the vyne tree, ner dryncke wyne or strong dryncke, nor eate any vncleane thynge: But must obserue all that I bad her.
13:15Manoah sayde vnto the aungell of the Lord: we wyl kepe the styll, vntyll we haue made redye a kydd, and haue sett it before the.
13:16And the angell of the Lorde sayde vnto Manoah: though thou make me abyde. I wyll not eate of thy bread. And yf thou wylt offre a burntoffring, thou must offer it vnto the Lorde. For Manoah wist not, that it was an angell of the Lord.
13:17And Manoah said agayne vnto the angel of the Lord: what is thy name, that when thy sayinge is come to passe, we maye do the some worshyppe?
13:18And the angel of the Lorde sayd vnto hym: why askest thou after my name, whych is Secrete.
13:19And so Manoah toke a kydde wt a meateofferinge, and offered it vpon a rocke vnto the Lorde. And the angell dyd wonderouslye. Manoah and hys wyfe lokynge vpon.
13:20And when the flame came vp toward heauen from the aultare, the angell of the Lord ascended vp in the flame of the aultare. And Manoah and hys wyfe loked vpon it, and fell flat on their faces vnto the grounde.
13:21But the angel of the Lorde dyd nomoare apeare vnto Manoah and his wife. And then Manoah knew that it was an angel of the Lorde,
13:22and sayde vnto hys wyfe we shall suerlye dye, because we haue sene God.
13:23But his wife said vnto him: Yf the Lord wold kyll vs, he wolde not haue receaued a burntoffryng & a meateoffring of oure handes, nether wolde he haue shewed vs all these thinges, nor wolde now haue tolde vs any soche.
13:24And the wyfe bare a sonne, and called his name Samson. And the ladd grewe, and the Lorde blessed hym.
13:25And the sprete of the Lorde beganne to moue hym in the host of Dan, betwene Zaraah & Esthaol.
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."
