1:1Forsothe for manye men enforceden to ordeyne the tellyng of thingis, whiche ben fillid in vs,
1:2as thei that seyn atte the bigynnyng, and weren ministris of the word,
1:3bitaken, it is seen also to me, hauynge alle thingis diligentli bi ordre, to write to thee,
1:4thou best Theofile, that thou knowe the treuthe of tho wordis, of whiche thou art lerned.
1:5In the daies of Eroude, kyng of Judee, ther was a prest, Sakarie bi name, of the sorte of Abia, and his wijf was of the douytris of Aaron, and hir name was Elizabeth.
1:6And bothe weren iust bifor God, goynge in alle the maundementis and iustifiyngis of the Lord, withouten pleynt.
1:7And thei hadden no child, for Elizabeth was bareyn, and bothe weren of grete age in her daies.

1:12And Zacarie seynge was afraied, and drede fel vpon hym.
1:13And the aungel seide to hym, Zacarie, drede thou not; for thi preyer is herd, and Elizabeth, thi wijf, schal bere to thee a sone, and his name schal be clepid Joon.
1:14And ioye and gladyng schal be to thee; and many schulen `haue ioye in his natyuyte.
1:15For he schal be greet bifor the Lord, and he schal not drynke wyn and sidir, and he schal be fulfillid with the Hooli Goost yit of his modir wombe.
1:16And he schal conuerte many of the children of Israel to her Lord God;

1:18And Zacarie seide to the aungel, Wherof schal Y wite this? for Y am eld, and my wijf hath gon fer in to hir daies.
1:19And the aungel answeride, and seide to hym, For Y am Gabriel, that stonde niy bifor God; and Y am sent to thee to speke, and to euangelize to thee these thingis.
1:20And lo! thou schalt be doumbe, and thou schalt not mow speke til in to the dai, in which these thingis schulen be don; for thou hast not bileued to my wordis, whiche schulen be fulfillid in her tyme.
1:21And the puple was abidynge Zacarie, and thei wondriden, that he tariede in the temple.
1:22And he yede out, and myyte not speke to hem, and thei knewen that he hadde seyn a visioun in the temple. And he bikenyde to hem, and he dwellide stille doumbe.

1:24And aftir these daies Elizabeth, his wijf, conseyuede, and hidde hir fyue monethis, and seide,
1:25For so the Lord dide to me in the daies, in whiche he bihelde, to take awei my repreef among men.
1:26But in the sixte moneth the aungel Gabriel was sent fro God in to a citee of Galilee, whos name was Nazareth,
1:27to a maidyn, weddid to a man, whos name was Joseph, of the hous of Dauid; and the name of the maidun was Marie.
1:28And the aungel entride to hir, and seide, Heil, ful of grace; the Lord be with thee; blessid be thou among wymmen.
1:29And whanne sche hadde herd, sche was troublid in his word, and thouyte what maner salutacioun this was.
1:30And the aungel seide to hir, Ne drede thou not, Marie, for thou hast foundun grace anentis God.
1:31Lo! thou schalt conceyue in wombe, and schalt bere a sone, and thou schalt clepe his name Jhesus.
1:32This schal be greet, and he schal be clepid the sone of the Hiyeste; and the Lord God schal yeue to hym the seete of Dauid, his fadir, and he schal regne in the hous of Jacob with outen ende,
1:33and of his rewme schal be noon ende.
1:34And Marie seide to the aungel, On what maner schal this thing be doon, for Y knowe not man?
1:35And the aungel answeride, and seide to hir, The Hooly Goost schal come fro aboue in to thee, and the vertu of the Hiyeste schal ouerschadewe thee; and therfor that hooli thing that schal be borun of thee, schal be clepid the sone of God.

1:43And whereof is this thing to me, that the modir of my Lord come to me?
1:44For lo! as the voice of thi salutacioun was maad in myn eeris, the yong child gladide in ioye in my wombe.
1:45And blessid be thou, that hast bileued, for thilke thingis that ben seid of the Lord to thee, schulen be parfitli don.
1:46And Marie seide, Mi soule magnyfieth the Lord,
1:47and my spirit hath gladid in God, myn helthe.

John Wycliffe Bible 1382

The Wycliffe Bible is the only Bible here that was not translated from the Textus Receptus. Its inclusion here is for the Bible's historic value and for comparison in the English language.

John Wycliffe, an Oxford professor produced the first hand-written English language Bible manuscripts in the 1380's. While it is doubtful Wycliffe himself translated the versions that bear his name, he certainly can be considered the driving force behind the project. He strongly believed in having the scriptures available to the people.

Wycliffe, was well-known throughout Europe for his opposition to the teaching of the organized Church, which he believed to be contrary to the Bible. With the help of his followers (called Lollards), Wycliffe produced dozens of English language manuscript copies of the scriptures. They were translated out of the Latin Vulgate, which was the only source text available to Wycliffe. The Pope was so infuriated by his teachings and his translation of the Bible into English, that 44 years after Wycliffe died, he ordered the bones to be dug-up, crushed, and scattered in the river.
