The Great Bible 1539



3:1Beholde, what loue the father hath shewed on vs, that we shuld be called the the sonnes of God. For this cause the worlde knoweth you not, because it knoweth not hym.
3:2Dearely beloued, now are we the sonnes of God & yet it doth not appeare, what we shalbe. But we knowe, that when it shall appeare, we shalbe lyke him. For we shall se hym as he is.
3:3And euery man that hath this hope in him, pourgeth him selfe, euen as he also is pure.
3:4Whosoeuer commytteth synne, committeth vnryghteousnes also, and synne is vnryghteousnes.
3:5And ye knowe, that he appeared, to take awaye oure synnes, and in him is no synne.
3:6As many as byde in hym, synne not: whosoeuer synneth, hath not sene hym, nether knowne hym.
3:7Babes, let no man deceaue you. He that doeth ryghteousnes, is ryghteous, euen as he is ryghteous.
3:8He that committeth synne, is of the deuyll: for the deuyll synneth sence the beginnynge. For this purpose appeared the sonne of God, to lowse the worckes of the deuyl.
3:9Whosoeuer is borne of God, synneth not: for his seed remayneth in him, and he cannot synne, because he is borne of God.
3:10In thys are the chyldren of God knowen, and the chyldren of the deuyll. Whosoeuer doeth not ryghteousnes, is not of God, nether he that loueth not hys brother.
3:11For this is the tidinges, that ye hearde from the beginninge, that ye shuld loue one another,
3:12not as Cayn which was of that wicked, and slewe his brother. And wherfore slewe he hym? Because his awne workes were euyll, and hys brothers good.
3:13Maruayle not my brethren though the world hate you.
3:14We knowe, that we are translated from deeth vnto lyfe, because we loue the brethren. He that loueth not hys brother, abydeth in deeth.
3:15Whosoeuer hateth his brother, is a man slear. And ye knowe, that no man slear, hath eternall lyfe abydynge in hym.
3:16Herby perceaue we loue: because he gaue his lyfe for vs: & we ought to geue oure liues for the brethren.
3:17But whoso hath thys worldes good and seyth hys brother haue neade: and shutteth vp his compassion from him: how dwelleth the loue of God in hym?
3:18My babes, let vs not loue in worde, nether in tonge: but in dede & in veritie.
3:19Herby we knowe, that we are of the veritie & can quyet oure hertes before hym.
3:20For yf oure herte condempne vs, God is gretter then oure herte, and knoweth all thinges.
3:21Dearly beloued, yf oure herte condempne vs not, then haue we trust to God warde:
3:22& what soeuer we aske we receaue of hym, because we kepe his commaundementes, & do those thinges which are pleasinge in his syght.
3:23And this is hys commaundement, that we beleue on the name of his sonne Iesus Christ, and loue one another, as he gaue commaundement.
3:24And he that kepeth hys commaundementes, dwelleth in him, & he in him, and herby we knowe that he abydeth in vs, euen by the sprete which he hath geuen vs.

The Great Bible 1539

The Great Bible of 1539 was the first authorized edition of the Bible in English, authorized by King Henry VIII of England to be read aloud in the church services of the Church of England. The Great Bible was prepared by Myles Coverdale, working under commission of Thomas, Lord Cromwell, Secretary to Henry VIII and Vicar General. In 1538, Cromwell directed the clergy to provide "one book of the bible of the largest volume in English, and the same set up in some convenient place within the said church that ye have care of, whereas your parishioners may most commodiously resort to the same and read it."
