John Wycliffe Bible 1382



7:1Britheren, whethir ye knowun not; for Y speke to men `that knowen the lawe; for the lawe hath lordschip in a man, as long tyme as it lyueth?
7:2For that womman that is vndur an hosebonde, is boundun to the lawe, while the hosebonde lyueth; but if hir hosebonde is deed, sche is delyuered fro the lawe of the hosebonde.
7:3Therfor sche schal be clepid auoutresse, if sche be with another man, while the hosebonde lyueth; but if hir hosebonde is deed, sche is delyuered fro the lawe of the hosebonde, that sche be not auoutresse, if sche be with another man.
7:4And so, my britheren, ye ben maad deed to the lawe bi the bodi of Crist, that ye ben of another, that roos ayen fro deth, that ye bere fruyt to God.
7:5For whanne we weren in fleisch, passiouns of synnes, that weren bi the lawe, wrouyten in oure membris, to bere fruyt to deth.
7:6But now we ben vnboundun fro the lawe of deth, in which we weren holdun, so that we seruen in newnesse of spirit, and not in eldnesse of lettre.
7:7What therfor schulen we seie? The lawe is synne? God forbede. But Y knew not synne, but bi lawe; for Y wiste not that coueitynge was synne, but for the lawe seide, Thou schalt not coueyte.
7:8And thoruy occasioun takun, synne bi the maundement hath wrouyt in me al coueytise; for withouten the lawe, synne was deed.
7:9And Y lyuede withouten the lawe sumtyme; but whanne the comaundement was comun, synne lyuede ayen.
7:10But Y was deed, and this comaundement that was to lijf, was foundun to me, to be to deth.
7:11For synne, thorouy occasioun takun bi the comaundement, disceyuede me, and bi that it slow me.
7:12Therfor the lawe is hooli, and the comaundement is hooli, and iust, and good.
7:13Is thanne that thing that is good, maad deth to me? God forbede. But synne, that it seme synne, thorouy good thing wrouyte deth to me, that me synne ouer maner thorouy the comaundement.
7:14And we witen, that the lawe is spiritual; but Y am fleischli, seld vndur synne.
7:15For Y vndurstonde not that that Y worche; for Y do not the good thing that Y wole, but Y do thilke yuel thing that Y hate.
7:16And if Y do that thing that Y wole not, Y consente to the lawe, that it is good.
7:17But now Y worche not it now, but the synne that dwellith in me.
7:18But and Y woot, that in me, that is, in my fleisch, dwellith no good; for wille lieth to me, but Y fynde not to performe good thing.
7:19For Y do not thilke good thing that Y wole, but Y do thilke yuel thing that Y wole not.
7:20And if Y do that yuel thing that Y wole not, Y worche not it, but the synne that dwellith in me.
7:21Therfor Y fynde the lawe to me willynge to do good thing, for yuel thing lieth to me.
7:22For Y delite togidere to the lawe of God, aftir the ynnere man. But Y se another lawe in my membris,
7:23ayenfiytynge the lawe of my soule, and makynge me caitif in the lawe of synne, that is in my membris.
7:24Y am an vnceli man; who schal delyuer me fro the bodi of this synne?
7:25The grace of God, bi Jhesu Crist oure Lord. Therfor Y my silf bi the soule serue to the lawe of God; but bi fleisch to the lawe of synne.
John Wycliffe Bible 1382

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.
