The Great Bible 1539



13:1In that tyme shall the house of Dauid and the cytesyns of Ierusalem haue an open well, to wash of synne and vnclennesse.
13:2And then (sayeth the Lorde of hostes) I wyll destroye the names of Idoles out of the lande: so that they shall nomore be put in remembraunce. As for the false prophetes also, and the vnclene sprete, I shall take them out of the lande.
13:3So that yf any of them prophecye any more, his awne father and mother that begat him, shall saye vnto him. Thou shalt dye for thou speakest lyes vnder the name of the Lorde: yee, his awne father and mother that begat him, shall wounde him, when he prophecieth.
13:4And then shall those prophetes be confounded, euery one of his vision when he prophecieth: nether shal they were sack clothes any more, to disceaue men with all.
13:5But he shall be fayne to saye: I am no Prophet: I am an husbandeman, for so am I taught by Adam fro my youth vp.
13:6And yf it be sayde vnto hym: how came these woundes then in thine handes? He shal answere. Thus am I wounded in the house of myne awne frendes.
13:7Aryse, O thou swearde, vpon my shepherde, and vpon the Prince of my people, saieth the Lorde of hostes. Smyte the shepherd, and the shepe shalbe scatred abrode, and so wyll I turne myne hande to the lytle ones.
13:8And it shall come to passe (sayeth the Lorde) that in all the land two partes shalbe roted out, but the thyrde parte shall remayne therin.
13:9And the same thyrde parte wyll I bringe thorow the fire, & wil clense them, as the siluer is clensed: yee, & trye them lyke as golde is tryed. Then shall they call vpon my name and I will heare them: I wyll saye: it is my people. And they shal saye: Lorde my God.
The Great Bible 1539

The Great Bible 1539

The Great Bible of 1539 was the first authorized edition of the Bible in English, authorized by King Henry VIII of England to be read aloud in the church services of the Church of England. The Great Bible was prepared by Myles Coverdale, working under commission of Thomas, Lord Cromwell, Secretary to Henry VIII and Vicar General. In 1538, Cromwell directed the clergy to provide "one book of the bible of the largest volume in English, and the same set up in some convenient place within the said church that ye have care of, whereas your parishioners may most commodiously resort to the same and read it."
