Bishops Bible 1568



6:1Chyldren, obey your fathers and mothers in the Lorde: for this is ryght.
6:2Honour thy father and mother (whiche is the first commaundement in promise)
6:3That thou mayest prosper, and lyue long on earth.
6:4Fathers prouoke not your children to wrath: but bring them vp in instruction and information of the Lorde.
6:5Seruauntes obey them that are your bodyly maisters, with feare and tremblyng, in singlenesse of your heart, as vnto Christe.
6:6Not with seruice vnto the eye, as men pleasers: but as the seruautes of Christ.
6:7Doyng the wyll of God fro the heart, with good wyll seruyng the Lorde, and not men:
6:8Knowyng, that whatsoeuer good thyng any man doeth, that shall he receaue agayne of the Lorde, whether [he be] bonde or free.
6:9And ye maisters do the same thynges vnto them, puttyng away threatnyng: knowyng that your maister also is in heauen, neither is respecte of person with hym.
6:10Finally my brethren, be strong in the Lorde, & in the power of his might.
6:11Put on all the armour of God, that ye may stande agaynst the assaultes of the deuyll.
6:12For we wrastle not agaynst blood & flesshe: but agaynst rule, agaynst power, agaynst worldly gouernours of the darknesse of this worlde, agaynst spirituall craftynesse in heauenly [places.]
6:13Wherfore take vnto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to resist in the euyll day, and hauing finished all thynges, to stande fast.
6:14Stande therfore, hauyng loynes girt about with the trueth, and puttyng on the brest plate of righteousnesse,
6:15And hauyng your feete shodde, in the preparation of the Gospell of peace.
6:16Aboue all, takyng the shielde of fayth, wherwith ye may quenche all the fierie dartes of the wicked:
6:17And take the helmet of saluation, and the sworde of the spirite, whiche is the worde of God.
6:18Praying alwayes in all prayer and supplication in the spirite, and watche thervnto with all instaunce and supplication, for all saintes,
6:19And for me, that vtteraunce may be geue vnto me, yt I may open my mouth freely, to vtter ye secretes of the Gospell.
6:20Whereof I am messenger in bondes, that therein I may speake freely, as I ought to speake.
6:21But yt ye may also knowe my affaires, and what I do, Tichicus a deare brother and faythfull minister in the Lord, shall shewe you all thynges:
6:22Whom I haue sent vnto you for the same purpose, that ye myght knowe of our affaires, and that he myght comfort your heartes.
6:23Peace [be] vnto the brethren, and loue, with fayth, from God the father, and from the Lorde Iesus Christe.
6:24Grace be with all them whiche loue our Lorde Iesus Christe in sinceritie. Amen.

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.
