King James Bible 1611



10:1Uerily, verily I say vnto you, He that entreth not by ye doore into the sheepefold, but climeth vp some other way, the same is a theefe, and a robber.
10:2But hee that entreth in by the doore, is the shepherd of the sheepe.
10:3To him the porter openeth, and the sheepe heare his voyce, and he calleth his owne sheepe by name, and leadeth them out.
10:4And when he putteth foorth his owne sheepe, he goeth before them, and the sheepe follow him: for they know his voyce.
10:5And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him, for they know not the voyce of strangers.
10:6This parable spake Iesus vnto them: but they vnderstood not what things they were which he spake vnto them.
10:7Then said Iesus vnto them againe, Uerily, verily I say vnto you, I am the doore of the sheepe.
10:8All that euer came before me, are theeues and robbers: but the sheepe did not heare them.
10:9I am the doore by me if any man enter in, he shall be saued, and shall goe in and out, and find pasture.
10:10The theefe commeth not, but for to steale and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might haue life, and that they might haue it more abundantly.
10:11I am the good shepheard: the good shepheard giueth his life for the sheepe.
10:12But hee that is an hireling and not the shepheard, whose owne the sheepe are not, seeth the woolfe coming, and leaueth the sheep, and fleeth: and the woolfe catcheth them, and scattereth the sheepe.
10:13The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, & careth not for the sheepe.
10:14I am the good shepheard, and know my sheepe, and am knowen of mine.
10:15As the father knoweth me, euen so know I the father: & I lay downe my life for the sheepe.
10:16And other sheepe I haue, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall heare my voyce; and there shall be one fold, and one shepheard.
10:17Therefore doth my father loue me, because I lay downe my life that I might take it againe.
10:18No man taketh it from me, but I lay it downe of my selfe: I haue power to lay it downe, and I haue power to take it againe. This commandement haue I receiued of my father.
10:19There was a diuision therefore againe among the Iewes for these sayings.
10:20And many of them said, He hath a deuill, and is mad, why heare ye him?
10:21Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a deuill. Can a deuill open the eyes of the blind?
10:22And it was at Hierusalem the feast of the dedication, & it was winter.
10:23And Iesus walked in the temple in Solomons porch.
10:24Then came the Iewes round about him, and said vnto him, How long doest thou make vs to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell vs plainely.
10:25Iesus answered them, I told you, and ye beleeued not: the workes that I doe in my Fathers name, they beare witnesse of me.
10:26But ye beleeue not, because ye are not of my sheepe, as I said vnto you.
10:27My sheepe heare my voyce, and I know them, and they follow me.
10:28And I giue vnto them eternall life, and they shall neuer perish, neither shall any man plucke them out of my hand.
10:29My father which gaue them me, is greater then all: and no man is able to plucke them out of my fathers hand.
10:30I and my father are one.
10:31Then the Iewes tooke vp stones againe to stone him.
10:32Iesus answered them, Many good workes haue I shewed you from my Father; for which of those workes doe ye stone me?
10:33The Iewes answered him, saying, For a good worke we stone thee not, but for blasphemy, and because that thou, being a man, makest thy selfe God.
10:34Iesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, ye are gods?
10:35If hee called them gods, vnto whom the word of God came, and the Scripture cannot be broken:
10:36Say ye of him, whom the father hath sanctified and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Sonne of God?
10:37If I doe not the workes of my Father, beleeue me not.
10:38But if I doe, though yee beleeue not me, beleeue the works: that ye may know and beleeue that the Father is in me, and I in him.
10:39Therefore they sought againe to take him: but hee escaped out of their hand,
10:40And went away againe beyond Iordane, into the place where Iohn at first baptized: and there he abode.
10:41And many resorted vnto him, and said, Iohn did no miracle: but all things that Iohn spake of this man, were true.
10:42And many beleeued on him there.

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.
