Bishops Bible 1568



5:1So I turned me, lifting vp myne eyes, & loked, and beholde, a fleeing booke
5:2And he saide vnto me: what seest thou? I aunswered: I see a fleeing booke of twentie cubites long, and ten cubites broade
5:3Then saide he vnto me, This is the curse that goeth foorth ouer the whole earth: for al theeues shalbe iudged after this booke, & al pariured persons shalbe iudged according to the same
5:4And I wil bring it foorth saith the lord of hoastes, so that it shall enter into the house of the theefe, and into the house of him that falsely sweareth by my name: and shall remayne in his house, and consume it, with the timber & stones therof
5:5Then the angel that talked with me, went foorth, and saide vnto me: Lyft vp thyne eyes, and see what is this that goeth foorth
5:6And I said, what is it? He aunswered: This is a measure going out. He saide moreouer: Eue thus are they that dwel vpon the whole earth to loke vpon
5:7And behold, there was lyft vp a talent of lead: and lo, a woman sate in the middest of the measure
5:8And he said, This is vngodlinesse: So he cast her into the middest of the measure, and threwe the lumpe of lead into the mouth of the measure
5:9Then lyft I vp myne eyes, and loked, & beholde, there came out two women, and the winde was in their winges: for they had winges lyke the winges of a storke, and they lyft vp the measure betwixt the earth and the heauen
5:10Then spake I to the angel that talked with me: Whyther wyll these beare the measure
5:11And he saide vnto me: Into the land of Sinnaar to builde it an house, & it shal be established, & set there vpon her owne place
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.
