Bishops Bible 1568



3:1For this cause I Paul [am] a prisoner of Iesus Christe, for you heathen:
3:2Yf ye haue hearde of the dispensatio of the grace of God, which is geuen me to youwarde:
3:3For by reuelation shewed he the misterie vnto me (as I wrote afore in fewe wordes:
3:4Whereby, when ye reade, ye may vnderstande my knowledge in the misterie of Christe)
3:5Which [misterie] in other ages was not opened vnto the sonnes of men, as it is nowe reuealed vnto his holy apostles and prophetes by the spirite,
3:6That the gentiles shoulde be inheritours also, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christe, by the Gospell:
3:7Wherof I am made a minister, accordyng to the gyfte of the grace of God, which is geuen vnto me after the workyng of his power.
3:8Unto me the least of all saintes is this grace geuen, that I shoulde preache among the gentiles the vnsearchable ryches of Christe,
3:9And to bring to lyght to all men what the felowship of the misterie is whiche from the begynnyng of the world hath ben hid in god, which made all thinges through Iesus Christe:
3:10To thintent that nowe vnto the rulers and power in heauenly [thynges] myght be knowen by ye Church, the very manyfolde wysedome of God:
3:11According to ye eternall purpose which he wrought in Christe Iesus our Lord:
3:12By who we haue boldnesse & entraunce in ye confidence which is by faith of him.
3:13Wherfore I desire that ye faynt not in my tribulations for you, whiche is your glorie.
3:14For this cause I bowe my knees vnto the father of our Lorde Iesus Christe,
3:15Of who all the famyly in heauen and earth is named:
3:16That he would graunt you, according to the rychesse of his glorie, to be strengthed with myght by his spirite in the inner man.
3:17That Christe may dwell in your heartes by fayth: that ye beyng rooted and grounded in loue,
3:18Myght be able to comprehende with al saintes, what is the breadth, & length, and deapth, and heygth:
3:19And to knowe the loue of Christe, whiche excelleth knowledge, that ye might be fylled with all fulnesse of God.
3:20Unto him that is able to do exceeding aboundauntly aboue all that we aske or thynke, accordyng to the power that worketh in vs,
3:21Be prayse in the Churche by Christe Iesus, throughout all ages, worlde without ende. Amen.
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.
