John Wycliffe Bible 1382



15:1But we saddere men owen to susteyne the feblenesses of sijke men, and not plese to vs silf.
15:2Eche of vs plese to his neiybore in good, to edificacioun.
15:3For Crist pleside not to hym silf, as it is writun, The repreues of men dispisynge thee, felden on me.
15:4For what euere thingis ben writun, tho ben writun to oure techynge, that bi pacience and coumfort of scripturis we haue hope.
15:5But God of pacience and of solace yyue to you to vndurstonde the same thing, ech in to othere aftir Jhesu Crist,
15:6that ye of o wille with o mouth worschipe God and the fadir of oure Lord Jhesu Crist.
15:7For which thing take ye togidere, as also Crist took you in to the onour of God.
15:8For Y seie, that Jhesu Crist was a mynystre of circumcisioun for the treuthe of God, to conferme the biheestis of fadris.
15:9And hethene men owen to onoure God for merci; as it is writun, Therfor, Lord, Y schal knowleche to thee among hethene men, and Y schal synge to thi name.
15:10And eft he seith, Ye hethene men, be ye glad with his puple.
15:11And eft, Alle hethene men, herie ye the Lord; and alle puplis, magnefie ye hym.
15:12And eft Isaie seith, Ther schal be a roote of Jesse, that schal rise vp to gouerne hethene men, and hethene men schulen hope in hym.
15:13And God of hope fulfille you in al ioye and pees in bileuynge, that ye encrees in hope and vertu of the Hooli Goost.
15:14And, britheren, Y my silf am certeyn of you, that also ye ben ful of loue, and ye ben fillid with al kunnyng, so that ye moun moneste ech other.
15:15And, britheren, more boldli Y wroot to you a parti, as bryngynge you in to mynde, for the grace that is youun to me of God,
15:16that Y be the mynystre of Crist Jhesu among hethene men. And Y halewe the gospel of God, that the offryng of hethene men be acceptid, and halewid in the Hooli Goost.
15:17Therfor Y haue glorie in Crist Jhesu to God.
15:18For Y dar not speke ony thing of tho thingis, whiche Crist doith not bi me, in to obedience of hethene men, in word and dedis,
15:19in vertu of tokenes and grete wondris, in vertu of the Hooli Goost, so that fro Jerusalem bi cumpas to the Illirik see Y haue fillid the gospel of Crist.
15:20And so Y haue prechid this gospel, not where Crist was named, lest Y bilde vpon anotheres ground, but as it is writun,
15:21For to whom it is not teld of him, thei schulen se, and thei that herden not, schulen vndurstonde.
15:22For which thing Y was lettid ful myche to come to you, and Y am lettid to this tyme.
15:23And now Y haue not ferthere place in these cuntrees, but Y haue desire to come to you, of many yeris that ben passid.
15:24Whanne Y bygynne to passe in to Spayne, Y hope that in my goyng Y schal se you, and of you Y schal be led thidur, if Y vse you first in parti.
15:25Therfor now Y schal passe forth to Jerusalem, to mynystre to seyntis.
15:26For Macedonye and Acaie han assaied to make sum yifte to pore men of seyntis, that ben in Jerusalem.
15:27For it pleside to hem, and thei ben dettouris of hem; for hethene men ben maad parteneris of her goostli thingis, thei owen also in fleischli thingis to mynystre to hem.
15:28Therfor whanne Y haue endid this thing, and haue asigned to hem this fruyt, Y schal passe bi you in to Spayne.
15:29And Y woot, that Y comynge to you, schal come `in to the abundaunce of the blessing of Crist.
15:30Therfor, britheren, Y biseche you bi oure Lord Jhesu Crist, and bi charite of the Hooli Goost, that ye helpe me in youre preyeris to the Lord,
15:31that Y be delyuerid fro the vnfeithful men, that ben in Judee, and that the offryng of my seruyce be acceptid in Jerusalem to seyntis;
15:32that Y come to you in ioye, bi the wille of God, and that Y be refreischid with you.
15:33God of pees be with you alle. Amen.

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.
