Geneva Bible 1560/1599



13:1And as he went out of the Temple, one of his disciples said vnto him, Master, see what maner stones, and what maner buildings are here.
13:2Then Iesus answered and saide vnto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone vpon a stone, that shall not be throwen downe.
13:3And as he sate on the mount of Oliues, ouer against the Temple, Peter, and Iames, and Iohn, and Andrew asked him secretly,
13:4Tell vs, when shall these things be? and what shalbe the signe when all these things shalbe fulfilled?
13:5And Iesus answered them, and began to say, Take heede lest any man deceiue you.
13:6For many shall come in my Name, saying, I am Christ, and shall deceiue many.
13:7Furthermore when ye shall heare, of warres, and rumours of warres, be ye not troubled: for such things must needes be: but the end shall not be yet.
13:8For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdome against kingdome, and there shalbe earthquakes in diuers quarters, and there shalbe famine and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorowes.
13:9But take ye heede to your selues: for they shall deliuer you vp to the Councils, and to the Synagogues: ye shalbe beaten, and brought before rulers and Kings for my sake, for a testimoniall vnto them.
13:10And the Gospel must first be published among all nations.
13:11But when they leade you, and deliuer you vp, be not carefull before hand, neither studie what ye shall say: but what is giuen you at the same time, that speake: for it is not ye that speake, but the holy Ghost.
13:12Yea, and the brother shall deliuer the brother to death, and the father the sonne, and the children shall rise against their parents, and shall cause them to die.
13:13And ye shall be hated of all men for my Names sake: but whosoeuer shall endure vnto the end, he shalbe saued.
13:14Moreouer, when ye shall see the abomination of desolation (spoken of by Daniel the Prophet) set where it ought not, (let him that readeth, consider it) then let them that be in Iudea, flee into the mountaines,
13:15And let him that is vpon the house, not come downe into the house, neither enter therein, to fetch any thing out of his house.
13:16And let him that is in the fielde, not turne backe againe to take his garment.
13:17Then wo shalbe to the that are with child, and to them that giue sucke in those dayes.
13:18Pray therefore that your flight be not in the winter.
13:19For those dayes shalbe such tribulation, as was not from the beginning of ye creation which God created vnto this time, neither shalbe.
13:20And except that the Lord had shortened those dayes, no flesh shoulde be saued: but for the elects sake, which he hath chosen, he hath shortened those dayes.
13:21Then if any man say to you, Loe, here is Christ, or, lo, he is there, beleeue it not.
13:22For false Christes shall rise, and false prophets, and shall shewe signes and wonders, to deceiue if it were possible the very elect.
13:23But take ye heede: beholde, I haue shewed you all things before.
13:24Moreouer in those dayes, after that tribulation, the sunne shall waxe darke, and ye moone shall not giue her light,
13:25And the starres of heauen shall fall: and the powers which are in heauen, shall shake.
13:26And then shall they see the Sonne of man comming in ye cloudes, with great power and glory.
13:27And he shall then send his Angels, and shall gather together his elect from the foure windes, and from the vtmost part of the earth to the vtmost part of heauen.
13:28Nowe learne a parable of the figge tree. When her bough is yet tender, and it bringeth foorth leaues, ye knowe that sommer is neere.
13:29So in like maner, when ye see these things come to passe, knowe that the kingdom of God is neere, euen at the doores.
13:30Verely I say vnto you, that this generation shall not passe, till all these things be done.
13:31Heauen and earth shall passe away, but my woordes shall not passe away.
13:32But of that day and houre knoweth no man, no, not the Angels which are in heauen, neither the Sonne himselfe, but the Father.
13:33Take heede: watch, and praie: for yee knowe not when the time is.
13:34For the Sonne of man is as a man going into a strange countrey, and leaueth his house, and giueth authoritie to his seruaunts, and to euery man his woorke, and commandeth the porter to watch.
13:35Watch ye therefore, (for ye know not whe ye master of the house will come, at eue, or at midnight, at the cocke crowing, or in the dawning,)
13:36Least if he come suddenly, he should finde you sleeping.
13:37And those things that I say vnto you, I say vnto all men, Watch.

Geneva Bible 1560/1599

The Geneva Bible is one of the most influential and historically significant translations of the Bible into English, preceding the King James translation by 51 years. It was the primary Bible of 16th century Protestantism and was the Bible used by William Shakespeare, Oliver Cromwell, John Knox, John Donne, and John Bunyan. The language of the Geneva Bible was more forceful and vigorous and because of this, most readers strongly preferred this version at the time.

The Geneva Bible was produced by a group of English scholars who, fleeing from the reign of Queen Mary, had found refuge in Switzerland. During the reign of Queen Mary, no Bibles were printed in England, the English Bible was no longer used in churches and English Bibles already in churches were removed and burned. Mary was determined to return Britain to Roman Catholicism.

The first English Protestant to die during Mary's turbulent reign was John Rogers in 1555, who had been the editor of the Matthews Bible. At this time, hundreds of Protestants left England and headed for Geneva, a city which under the leadership of Calvin, had become the intellectual and spiritual capital of European Protestants.

One of these exiles was William Whittingham, a fellow of Christ Church at Oxford University, who had been a diplomat, a courtier, was much traveled and skilled in many languages including Greek and Hebrew. He eventually succeeded John Knox as the minister of the English congregation in Geneva. Whittingham went on to publish the 1560 Geneva Bible.

This version is significant because, it came with a variety of scriptural study guides and aids, which included verse citations that allow the reader to cross-reference one verse with numerous relevant verses in the rest of the Bible, introductions to each book of the Bible that acted to summarize all of the material that each book would cover, maps, tables, woodcut illustrations, indices, as well as other included features, all of which would eventually lead to the reputation of the Geneva Bible as history's very first study Bible.
