Bishops Bible 1568



4:1And the angell that talked with me, came againe, and waked me, as a man that is raysed out of his sleepe
4:2And saide vnto me: what seest thou? And I saide: I haue loked, and beholde, a candelsticke all of golde, with a boule vpon it, and his seuen lampes therein, & vpon euery lampe seuen pypes
4:3And two olyue trees thereby: one vpon the right side of the boule, & the other vpon the left side
4:4So I aunswered, and spake to the angell that talked with me, saying, O my Lorde, what are these
4:5The angell that talked with me aunswered and saide vnto me: Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No my Lorde
4:6He aunswered and saide vnto me: This is the worde of the Lorde vnto Zorobabel, saying, Neither through an hoast of men, nor through strength: but through my spirite, saith the Lorde of hoastes
4:7What art thou great mountaine before Zorobabel? thou must be made euen, and he shall bring foorth the head stone therof, with showtinges, crying, Grace grace vnto it
4:8Moreouer, the word of the Lord came vnto me, saying
4:9The handes of Zorobabel haue layde the foundation of this house, his hands shal also finishe it: and thou shalt knowe that the Lorde of hoastes hath sent me vnto you
4:10For who hath despised the day of small thinges? they shall reioyce, and shall see the stone of tynne in the hande of Zorobabel: these seuen are the eyes of the lord, which go through ye whole worlde
4:11Then aunswered I, & saide vnto him: What are these two olyue trees vpon the right & left side of the candelsticke
4:12I spake moreouer, and saide vnto him: What be these two olyue braunches which through the two golden pypes emptie them selues into the golde
4:13He aunswered me & said: Knowest thou not what these be? & I said, no my lord
4:14Then said he: These are the two oliue braunches, that stand with the ruler of the whole earth
Bishops Bible 1568

Bishops Bible 1568

The Bishops' Bible was produced under the authority of the established Church of England in 1568. It was substantially revised in 1572, and the 1602 edition was prescribed as the base text for the King James Bible completed in 1611. The thorough Calvinism of the Geneva Bible offended the Church of England, to which almost all of its bishops subscribed. They associated Calvinism with Presbyterianism, which sought to replace government of the church by bishops with government by lay elders. However, they were aware that the Great Bible of 1539 , which was the only version then legally authorized for use in Anglican worship, was severely deficient, in that much of the Old Testament and Apocrypha was translated from the Latin Vulgate, rather than from the original Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek. In an attempt to replace the objectionable Geneva translation, they circulated one of their own, which became known as the Bishops' Bible.
