18:1In those dayes there was no king in Israell. And in those dayes the tribe of Dan sought then an enheritaunce to dwell in for vnto that tyme there fel none enheritaunce vnto them amonge the trybe of Israell.
18:2And the children of Dan sent of their kinred fyue actyue men in feates of warre oute of theyr coastes, euen out of Zaraah and Estahol, to vewe the lande and searche it out, and sayde vnto them: go, and searche out the lande. Which whan they came to mount Ephraim, euen to the house of Micah, they lodged ther
18:3And when they were in the house of Micah, they knewe the voyce of the yonge man the leuite: and when they turned in thyther, they sayde vnto hym: who brought the hyther? what makest thou in thys place? and what hast thou here?
18:4And he answered them: thus and thus dealed Micah with me, and hath hired me, and I am become hys preste.
18:5And they sayde vnto hym agayne: Aske councell now of God, that we maye knowe, whether the waye whych we go, shalbe prosperous, or no.
18:6And the preste sayde vnto them: go in peace, for the Lorde gydeth your waye which ye go.
18:7Then the fyue men departed, and came to Lais, and sawe the people that were therin, how they dwelt careles, after the maner of the Sydons, styll, and without castynge of parelles: and that no man made any trouble in the land, or vsurped any domynion, but were farre from the Sidons, and had no busines with other men.
18:8And they came vnto theyr brethren, to Zaraah & Estahol. And their brethren sayd vnto them: what haue ye done?
18:9And they answered: Aryse, that we maye go vp agaynst them, for we haue sene the lande: surely a very good one. And do ye sytt stil? be not slouthful to departe: But come to conquere the lande.
18:10Yf ye wyll go, ye shall come vnto a people that casteth no parelles, & it is a very large countre: which God hath geuen into your handes. It is also a place, which doth lacke nothynge that is in the worlde.
18:11And there departed thence of the kynred of the Dannites, euen out of Zaraah and Esthaol, syxe hundred men appoynted with instrumentes of warre.
18:12And they went vp, and pitched in kariath Iarim which is in Iuda. Wherfore they called the place, the hoost of Dan, vnto thys daye: and it is on the backsyde of kariath Iarim.
18:13And they went thence vnto mount Ephraim, & came to the house of Micah.
18:14Then answered the fyue men that went to spye out the countre of Lais, & sayde vnto their brethren: wot ye not that there is in these houses an Ephod, Theraphim, a grauen ymage, & an ymage of metall? Now therfore consydre what ye haue to do.
18:15And they turned thitherwarde and came to the house of the yong man the Leuite, euen vnto the house of Micah, and saluted hym peasably.
18:16And the syxe hundred men gyrded with weapons of warre, which were of the chyldren of Dan, stode by the enteryng of the gate.
18:17And the fyue men that went to spye out the lande, went in thyther and toke the kerued Image, and the Ephod, Theraphim, and the ymage of metall. And the preste stode in the enterynge of the gate with the syxe hundred men that were armed vnto batayl,
18:18whyle the other wente into Michas house, and fet the kerued ymage, the Ephod, Theraphim, and the ymage of metall. Then sayd the preste vnto them: what do ye?
18:19They answered hym: holde thy peace, laye thyne hande vpon thy mouth, and come with vs, to be oure father & preste. Is it better for the to be a preste vnto the house of one man, then to be a prest vnto a trybe or a kynred in Israell?
18:20And the preste was glad and toke the Ephod, and Theraphim, and the grauen ymage, & went with the people.
18:21And they turned and departed, and put the chyldren, the catell and their other substaunce before them.
18:22And when they were a good waye from the house of Micah, the men that were in the houses, and in Micahs house, made an oute crye, and folowed after the chyldren of Dan, and called vnto them.
18:23And they turned their faces, and sayde vnto Micah: what ayleth the, that thou makest an out crye?
18:24And he sayd: ye haue taken awaye my goddes whych I made, and also the preste, and go your wayes with them. And what haue I more? how then saye ye vnto me, what ayleth the?
18:25And the chyldren of Dan sayde vnto hym: let not thy voyce be hearde amonge vs, lest angrye felowes runne vpon the, and thou loose thy lyfe with the lyues of all thyne housholde.
18:26And so the chyldren of Dan wente theyr wayes. And when Micah sawe that they were to stronge for hym, he turned and went backe vnto hys house agayne.
18:27And they toke the thynges which Micah had made, & the preste which he had, & came vnto Lais, euen vnto a people that were at reast & without mistrust, & smote them with the edge of the swerd, & burnt the cytie with fyre.
18:28And there was no man to helpe, because Lais was farre from Sidon, & they had no medelyng with any other man. And the cyte stode in the valey that lyeth by Bethrehob. And they bylt them there a cytie, & dwelt therin.
18:29And called it Dan, after the name of Dan their father which was borne vnto Israell. Howbeit, in very dede the name of the cytie was Lais at the begynninge.
18:30And the chyldren of Dan set them vp the grauen ymage. And Ionathan the sonne of Gerson, the sonne of Manasses and hys sonnes were the prestes in the trybe of Dan vntyll they were caryed awaye out of the land captyue.
18:31And they sett them vp the kerued ymage which Micah made, all the whyle that the house of God was in Silo.

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."
