King James Bible 1611



32:1Now the children of Reuben, and the children of Gad, had a very great multitude of cattell: and when they saw the land of Iazer, and the land of Gilead, that behold, the place was a place for cattell;
32:2The children of Gad, and the children of Reuben, came and spake vnto Moses, and to Eleazar the Priest, and vnto the Princes of the Congregation, saying,
32:3Ataroth, and Dibon, and Iazer, and Nimrah, and Heshbon, and Elealeh, and Shebam, and Nebo, and Beon,
32:4Euen the countrey which the Lord smote before the Congregation of Israel, is a land for cattell, and thy seruants haue cattell.
32:5Wherefore, said they, if wee haue found grace in thy sight, let this lande be giuen vnto thy seruants for a possession, and bring vs not ouer Iordane.
32:6And Moses said vnto the children of Gad, and to the children of Reuben, Shall your brethren goe to warre, and shall ye sit here?
32:7And wherefore discourage yee the heart of the children of Israel from going ouer into the lande, which the Lord hath giuen them?
32:8Thus did your fathers, when I sent them from Kadesh Barnea to see the land.
32:9For when they went vp vnto the valley of Eshcol, and saw the land, they discouraged the heart of the children of Israel, that they should not goe into the land which the Lord had giuen them.
32:10And the Lords anger was kindled the same time, and hee sware, saying,
32:11Surely none of the men that came vp out of Egypt, from twentie yeeres old and vpward, shall see the lande which I sware vnto Abraham, vnto Isaac, and vnto Iacob, because they haue not wholly followed me:
32:12Saue Caleb the sonne of Iephunneh the Kenezite, and Ioshua the sonne of Nun: for they haue wholly followed the Lord.
32:13And the Lords anger was kindled against Israel, and hee made them wander in the wildernesse fourty yeeres, vntill all the generation that had done euill in the sight of the Lord was consumed.
32:14And beholde, ye are risen vp in your fathers stead, an increase of sinfull men, to augment yet the fierce anger of the Lord toward Israel.
32:15For if yee turne away from after him, hee will yet againe leaue them in the wildernesse, and ye shall destroy all this people.
32:16And they came neere vnto him, and said, Wee will build sheepfoldes here for our cattell, and cities for our litle ones.
32:17But we ourselues will goe ready armed before the children of Israel, vntill wee haue brought them vnto their place: and our litle ones shall dwell in the fenced cities, because of the inhabitants of the land.
32:18Wee will not returne vnto our houses, vntill the children of Israel haue inherited euery man his inheritance:
32:19For wee will not inherite with them on yonder side Iordane, or forward, because our inheritance is fallen to vs on this side Iordane Eastward.
32:20And Moses said vnto them, If ye will doe this thing, if ye will goe armed before the Lord to warre,
32:21And will goe all of you armed ouer Iordane before the Lord, vntill he hath driuen out his enemies from before him,
32:22And the land bee subdued before the Lord: then afterward ye shall returne, and bee guiltlesse before the Lord, and before Israel; and this land shall be your possession before the Lord.
32:23But if ye will not doe so, behold, yee haue sinned against the Lord: and bee sure your sinne will finde you out.
32:24Build ye cities for your litle ones, and folds for your sheepe, and doe that which hath proceeded out of your mouth.
32:25And the children of Gad, and the children of Reuben spake vnto Moses, saying, Thy seruants will doe as my lord commandeth.
32:26Our little ones, our wiues, our flocks, and all our cattell shall be there in the cities of Gilead.
32:27But thy seruants will passe ouer, euery man armed for warre, before the Lord to battell, as my lord saith.
32:28So concerning them Moses commaunded Eleazar the Priest, and Ioshua the sonne of Nun, and the chiefe fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel:
32:29And Moses said vnto them, If the children of Gad, and the children of Reuben will passe with you ouer Iordane, euery man armed to battell before the Lord, and the land shall be subdued before you, then ye shall giue them the land of Gilead for a possession:
32:30But if they will not passe ouer with you armed, they shall haue possessions among you in the land of Canaan.
32:31And the children of Gad, and the children of Reuben answered, saying, As the Lord hath said vnto thy seruants, so will we doe.
32:32Wee will passe ouer armed before the Lord into the land of Canaan, that the possession of our inheritance on this side Iordane may be ours.
32:33And Moses gaue vnto them, euen to the children of Gad, and to the children of Reuben; and vnto halfe the tribe of Manasseh the sonne of Ioseph, the kingdome of Sihon King of the Amorites, and the kingdome of Og King of Bashan, the land with the cities thereof, in the coastes, euen the cities of the countrey round about.
32:34And the children of Gad built Dibon, and Ataroth, and Aroer,
32:35And Atroth, Shophan, and Iaazer, and Iogbehah,
32:36And Bethnimrah, and Bethharan, fenced cities: and foldes for sheepe.
32:37And the children of Reuben built Heshbon, and Elealeh, and Kiriathaim,
32:38And Nebo, and Baalmeon (their names being changed) and Shibmah: and gaue other names vnto the cities which they builded.
32:39And the children of Machir, the sonne of Manasseh, went to Gilead, and tooke it, and dispossessed the Amorite which was in it.
32:40And Moses gaue Gilead vnto Machir the sonne of Manasseh, and he dwelt therein.
32:41And Iair the sonne of Manasseh went and tooke the small townes thereof, and called them Hauoth-Iair.
32:42And Nobah went and tooke Kenath, and the villages thereof, and called it Nobah, after his owne name.

King James Bible 1611

The commissioning of the King James Bible took place at a conference at the Hampton Court Palace in London England in 1604. When King James came to the throne he wanted unity and stability in the church and state, but was well aware that the diversity of his constituents had to be considered. There were the Papists who longed for the English church to return to the Roman Catholic fold and the Latin Vulgate. There were Puritans, loyal to the crown but wanting even more distance from Rome. The Puritans used the Geneva Bible which contained footnotes that the king regarded as seditious. The Traditionalists made up of Bishops of the Anglican Church wanted to retain the Bishops Bible.

The king commissioned a new English translation to be made by over fifty scholars representing the Puritans and Traditionalists. They took into consideration: the Tyndale New Testament, the Matthews Bible, the Great Bible and the Geneva Bible. The great revision of the Bible had begun. From 1605 to 1606 the scholars engaged in private research. From 1607 to 1609 the work was assembled. In 1610 the work went to press, and in 1611 the first of the huge (16 inch tall) pulpit folios known today as "The 1611 King James Bible" came off the printing press.
