Bishops Bible 1568



1:1Paul an Apostle, not of men, neither by man: but by Iesus Christe, and by God the father, which raysed hym vp from death:
1:2And all the brethren which are with me. Unto ye Churches of Galacia:
1:3Grace [be] with you, and peace from God the father, and from our Lorde Iesus Christe:
1:4Which gaue hym selfe for our sinnes, to deliuer vs from this present euyll worlde, accordyng to the wyll of God, and our father:
1:5To whom be glory for euer and euer. Amen.
1:6I maruayle, that ye are so soone turned from him that had called you in the grace of Christe, vnto another Gospell:
1:7Which is not another [Gospel] but that there be some which trouble you, and intende to peruert the Gospel of Christ.
1:8Neuerthelesse, though we, or an Angel from heauen, preache any other Gospel vnto you, then that which we haue preached vnto you, let hym be accursed.
1:9As we sayde before, so say I nowe agayne, yf any man preache any other Gospell vnto you, then that ye haue receaued, let hym be accursed.
1:10Do I nowe perswade men, or God? Other do I seke to please men? For yf I shoulde yet please men, I were not the seruaunt of Christe.
1:11I certifie you brethren, that the Gospell which was preached of me, was not after man.
1:12For I neither receaued it of man, neither was I taught [it] but by the reuelation of Iesus Christe.
1:13For ye haue hearde of my conuersation in tyme past in the Iewes religion, howe that beyonde measure I persecuted the Churche of God, & spoyled it:
1:14And profited in the Iewes religion, aboue many of my companions in mine owne nation, beyng a very feruent maynteyner of the traditions of my fathers.
1:15But when it pleased God, which seperated me from my mothers wombe, & called [me] by his grace,
1:16To reueale his sonne by me, that I shoulde by the Gospell preache hym among the Heathen: immediatly I communed not with fleshe and blood:
1:17Neither returned to Hierusalem, to them which were Apostles before me: but went my wayes into Arabia, and came agayne vnto Damascus.
1:18Then after three yeres, I returned to Hierusale to see Peter, and abode with hym fyfteene dayes.
1:19But other of the Apostles sawe I none, saue Iames the Lordes brother.
1:20The thynges therfore which I write vnto you, beholde, before God I lie not.
1:21Afterwarde, I came into the coastes of Syria & Cilicia,
1:22and was vnknowen in face vnto the Churches of Iurie, which were in Christe.
1:23But they had hearde only, that he which persecuted vs in tyme past, nowe preacheth the fayth, which before he destroyed.
1:24And they glorified God in me.

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.
