Bishops Bible 1568



11:1Would to God ye coulde haue suffred me a litle in my foolishnesse: and in dede ye do forbeare me.
11:2For I am gelous ouer you, with Godly gelousie: For I haue coupled you to one man, to present [you] a chaste virgin vnto Christe.
11:3But I feare lest by any meanes, that as the serpent begyled Eue through his subtiltie, euen so your myndes shoulde be corrupted fro the singlenesse that is towarde Christe.
11:4For yf he that commeth, preacheth another Iesus, whom we haue not preached: or yf ye receaue another spirite whom ye haue not receaued: either another Gospell which ye haue not receaued, you woulde well haue suffered [hym].
11:5Ueryly I suppose that I was not behynde the chiefe Apostles.
11:6But though [I be] rude in speakyng, yet not in knowledge, but in all thynges among you, we haue ben well knowen to the vtmost.
11:7Dyd I sinne because I submitted my selfe, that ye myght be exalted, & because I preached to you the Gospell of God freely?
11:8I robbed other Churches, takyng wages of them, to do you seruice.
11:9And when I was present with you, and had nede, I was chargeable to no man: for that which was lackyng vnto me, the brethren which came from Macedonia supplied, and in all thynges I haue kept my selfe so that I shoulde not be chargeable to any man, and [so] wyll I kepe my selfe.
11:10The trueth of Christe is in me, that this reioycyng shall not be shut vp agaynst me in the regions of Achaia.
11:11Wherfore? Because I loue you not? God knoweth.
11:12But what I do, that wyll I do, to cut away occasion from them which desire occasion, that they myght be founde lyke vnto vs, in yt wherin they gloried.
11:13For such false Apostles [are] disceiptfull workers, transfourmed into ye Apostles of Christe.
11:14And no maruayle, for Satan himselfe is transfourmed into an angel of lyght.
11:15Therfore it is no great thyng though his ministers be transfourmed as the ministers of righteousnesse, whose ende shalbe accordyng to their workes.
11:16I say agayne, let no man thynke that I am foolyshe: or els euen nowe take ye me as a foole, that I also may boast my selfe a litle.
11:17That I speake, I speake it not after the Lorde: but as it were foolishly, in this maner of boastyng.
11:18Seyng that many glorie after ye fleshe, I wyll glorie also.
11:19For ye suffer fooles gladly, seyng ye your selues are wyse.
11:20For ye suffer, yf a man bryng you into bondage, yf a man deuoure, yf a man take, yf a man exalt hym selfe, yf a man smite you on the face.
11:21I speake concernyng reproche, as though we had ben weake: Howbeit, wherin soeuer any man is bolde, (I speake foolishly) I am bolde also.
11:22They are Ebrues, euen so am I. They are Israelites, euen so am I. They are the seede of Abraham, euen so am I.
11:23They are the ministers of Christe, (I speake as a foole) I am more: in labours more aboundant, in stripes aboue measure, in pryson more plenteouslie, in death oft.
11:24Of the Iewes fyue tymes receaued I fourtie [stripes] saue one.
11:25Thryse was I beaten with roddes, once stoned, thrise I suffred shipwracke, nyght and day haue I ben in ye depth:
11:26In iourneying often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils of myne owne nation, in perils among the heathen, in perils in the citie, in perils in the wildernesse, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren,
11:27In labour & trauayle, in watchinges often, in hunger and thirst, in fastinges often, in colde and nakednesse,
11:28Besides the thynges which outwardlye come vnto me: my dayly encombraunce [is] the care of all the Churches.
11:29Who is weake, and I am not weake? who is offended, and I burne not?
11:30If I must needes glory, I wyll glory of the thynges that concerne myne infirmities.
11:31The God and father of our Lorde Iesus Christe, which is blessed for euermore, knoweth that I lye not.
11:32In [the citie of] Damascus, Aretas the kynges gouernour of the people, layde watche in the citie of the Damascens, and woulde haue caught me:
11:33And at a wyndowe was I let downe in a basket through the wall, and scaped his handes.

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.
