|desyrynge to se the myndfull of thy teares: so that I am filled with ioye
|whe I call to remembraunce the vnfayned fayth that is in the which dwelt fyrst in thy graumoder Lois and in thy mother Eunica: and am assured that it dwelleth in the also.
|Wherfore I warne the that thou stere vp the gyfte of god which is in the by the puttynge on of my hondes.
|For god hath not geven to vs the sprete of feare: but of power and of love and of sobrenes of mynde.
|Be not a shamed to testyfye oure lorde nether be a shamed of me which am bounde for his sake: but suffre adversite with ye gospell also thorow ye power of god
|which saved vs and called vs wt an holy callinge not acordinge to oure dedes but accordynge to his awne purpose and grace which grace was geve vs thorowe Christ Iesu before the worlde was

|whervnto I am apoynted a preacher and an Apostle and a teacher of the gentyls:
|for the which cause I also suffre these thinges. Neverthelesse I am not a shamed For I knowe who I have beleved and am sure that he is able to kepe that which I have comitted to his kepynge agaynst that daye.
|Se thou have the ensample of the holsome wordes which thou heardest of me in fayth and love which is in Iesu Christ.
|That good thinge whiche was committed to thy kepynge kepe in ye holy goost which dwelleth in vs.
|This thou knowest how that all they which are in Asia be turned from me. Of which sorte are Phigelos and hermogenes.
|The lorde geve mercie vnto the housse of Onesiphoros for he ofte refresshed me and was not a shamed of my chayne:
|but when he was at Rome he sought me out very diligently and founde me.
|The lorde graunt vnto him that he maye fynde mercie with the lorde at that daye. And in how many thynges he ministred vnto me at Ephesus thou knowest very wel.
William Tyndale Bible 1534
William Tyndale was the first man to ever print the New Testament in the English language. Tyndale also went on to be the first to translate much of the Old Testament from the original Hebrew into English, but he was executed in 1536 for the "crime" of printing the scriptures in English before he could personally complete the printing of an entire Bible. His friends Myles Coverdale, and John [Thomas Matthew] Rogers, managed to evade arrest and publish entire Bibles in the English language for the first time, and within one year of Tyndale's death. These Bibles were primarily the work of William Tyndale.
