Bishops Bible 1568



2:1But I determined this in my selfe, yt I would not come againe to you in heauynesse.
2:2For if I make you sorie, who is he yt shoulde make me glad, but the same which is made sorie by me?
2:3And I wrote this same vnto you, lest when I came, I shoulde take heauynesse of them of whom I ought to reioyce. This confidence haue I toward you all, that my ioy is [the ioy] of you all.
2:4For in great affliction and anguishe of heart, I wrote vnto you with many teares, not that ye shoulde be made sorie, but that ye myght perceaue the loue which I haue, most specially vnto you.
2:5But yf any man hath caused sorowe, the same hath not made me sorie, but partly, lest I shoulde greeue you all.
2:6It is sufficient vnto the same man that he was rebuked of many.
2:7So that nowe contrarywise, ye ought rather to forgeue hym, and comforte hym, lest that same person shoulde be swallowed vp with ouermuche heauynesse.
2:8Wherfore I pray you, that you would confirme your loue towardes hym.
2:9For this cause veryly did I write, that I myght knowe the profe of you, whether ye be obedient in all thynges.
2:10To whom ye forgeue any thyng, I forgeue also. For if I forgaue any thing, to whom I forgaue it, for your sakes forgaue I it, in the sight of Christe.
2:11Lest Satan shoulde circumuent vs: For his thoughtes are not vnknowen vnto vs.
2:12Furthermore, when I came to Troada, to [preache] Christes Gospell, and a doore was opened vnto me of the lorde,
2:13I had no rest in my spirite, because I founde not Titus my brother, but toke my leaue of them, and went away into Macedonia.
2:14Nowe thankes be vnto God, whiche alwayes geueth vs the victorie in Christe, and openeth the sauour of his knowledge by vs in euery place.
2:15For we are vnto God the sweete sauour of Christe in them that are saued, and in them which perisshe.
2:16To the one part [are we] the sauour of death, vnto death: and vnto the other part [are we] the sauour of lyfe vnto lyfe. And who is meete vnto these thynges?
2:17For we are not as many are, whiche chop & chaunge with the word of God: but as of purenesse of God, in the syght of God, so speake we in Christe.

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.
