Bishops Bible 1568



4:1I therfore, a prisoner in the Lorde, exhorte you, that ye walke worthy of the vocatio wherewith ye are called,
4:2With all lowlynesse & mekenesse, with long sufferyng, forbearyng one another in loue.
4:3Endeuoryng to kepe the vnitie of the spirite in the bonde of peace:
4:4One body and one spirite, euen as ye are called in one hope of your calling.
4:5One Lorde, one fayth, one baptisme.
4:6One God, and father of all, whiche is aboue all, and through all, and in you all.
4:7But vnto euery one of vs, is geuen grace, accordyng to the measure of the gyft of Christe.
4:8Wherfore he saith: When he went vp an hye, he ledde captiuitie captiue, and gaue gyftes vnto men.
4:9(But that he ascended, what is it? but that he also descended first into the lower partes of the earth?
4:10He that descended, is euen the same also that ascended vp farre aboue all heauens, to fulfyll all thynges.)
4:11And he gaue some apostles, and some prophetes, and some euangelistes, and some shepheardes and teachers,
4:12To the gatheryng together of the saintes, into the worke of ministration, into the edifiyng of the body of Christe:
4:13Tyll we all meete together into the vnitie of fayth, and knowledge of the sonne of God, vnto a perfect man, vnto the measure of the age of the fulnesse of Christe:
4:14That we hencefoorth be no more children, wauering and caryed about with euery wynde of doctrine, in the wylynesse of men, in craftynesse, to the laying wayte of deceyte.
4:15But folowyng trueth in loue, let vs growe vp into him in all thynges whiche is the head, Christ:
4:16In whom all the body beyng coupled and knit together by euery ioynt of subministration, accordyng to the effectuall power in ye measure of euery part, maketh increase of the body, vnto the edifiyng of it selfe in loue.
4:17This I say therfore, and testifie in the Lorde, that ye hencefoorth walke not as other gentiles walke, in vanitie of their mynde:
4:18Darkened in cogitation, being alienated from the lyfe of God by the ignoraunce that is in them, by the blindnesse of their heartes.
4:19Whiche beyng past feelyng, haue geuen the selues ouer vnto wantonnesse, to worke al vncleanenesse with greedynesse.
4:20But ye haue not so learned Christe.
4:21Yf so be that ye haue hearde hym, and haue ben taught in hym, as the trueth is in Iesus,
4:22To lay downe, accordyng to the former conuersation, ye olde man, which is corrupt, accordyng to the lustes of error:
4:23To be renued in the spirite of your mynde,
4:24And to put on that newe man, which after God is shapen, in righteousnesse & holynesse of trueth.
4:25Wherfore, puttyng away lying, speake euery man trueth vnto his neyghbour, forasmuch as we are members one of another.
4:26Be ye angry, and sinne not, let not the sunne go downe vpon your wrath,
4:27Neither geue place to the deuyll.
4:28Let hym that stole, steale no more: but let hym rather labour, workyng with his handes the thyng whiche is good, that he may geue vnto hym that needeth.
4:29Let no fylthy communication procede out of your mouth, but that whiche is good to edifie withal, as oft as neede is, that it may minister grace vnto the hearers.
4:30And greeue not the holy spirite of God, by whom ye are sealed vnto the day of redemption.
4:31Let all bytternesse, and fiercenesse, & wrath, and crying, and euyll speakyng, be put away from you, with all maliciousnesse.
4:32Be ye curteous one to another, merciful, forgeuing one another, euen as God for Christes sake hath forgeuen you.

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.
