17:2and he sayde vnto hys mother: the leuen hundreth syluerlynges that were taken from the, aboute which thou cursedst, & spakest it in myne eares. Behold, the syluer is with me, I toke it awaye. And hys mother sayde: blessed be thou my sonne, in the Lorde.
17:3And when he had restored the leuen hundred syluerlynges to his mother agayne, his mother sayde: I vowed the syluer vnto the Lord of myne hande for the my sonne: that thou shuldest make a grauen ymage and an ymage of metall. Now therfore, I wyll geue it the agayne.
17:4And when he restored the moneye againe vnto his mother, his mother toke two hundreth syluerlynges, and gaue them to a goldsmyth, which made therof a grauen image, and a ymage of metall, and it was in the house of Micah.

17:8And the man departed oute of the cytie of Bethlehem Iuda, to go dwel where he coulde fynde a conuenient place. And he came to mount Ephraim, to the house of Micah as he iourneyed.

17:10And Micah sayd agayne vnto him: dwell with me, and be vnto me a father and a preste. And I wyll geue the ten syluerlynges by yeare, two garmentes, and thy meate and dryncke.

17:12And Micah consecrated the hande of the leuite, and the yonge man became his preste, and was in the house of Micah.
17:13Then sayde Micah: now I am sure, that the Lord wyll be good vnto me, seynge: I haue a leuyte to my preste.

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."
