The Great Bible 1539



5:1So I turned me, lyftyng vp myne eyes, & loked, & beholde, a flyinge boke.
5:2And he sayd vnto me: what seest thou I answered: I se a flyinge booke of .xx. cubytes longe, and .x. cubytes brode.
5:3Then sayed he vnto me: Thys is the curse that goeth forth ouer the whole earth: for all theues shalbe Iudged after this booke & all swearers shalbe iudged accordynge to the same,
5:4& I wyl brynge it furth (sayeth the Lorde of hostes) so that it shall come to the house of the thefe, & to the house of him, that falsly sweareth by my name: & shall remayne in hys house, & consume it, wt the tymbre and stones therof.
5:5Then the angel that talked wt me, wente forth and sayd vnto me: lyft vp thyne eyes and se, what is this that goeth forth.
5:6And I sayde: what is it? He answered: thys is a measure goinge out. He sayde moreouer: Euen thus are they (that dwel vpon the whole earth) to loke vpon.
5:7And beholde, there was lyft vp a talent of leade: & lo, a woman sat in the myddest of the measure.
5:8And he sayde: thys is vngodlynes. So he cast her into the myddest of the measure, and threwe the lompe of leade into the mouth of the measure.
5:9Then lyfte I vp myne eyes, & loked: and behold, there came out .ii. women, and the wind was in their wynges (for they had wynges lyke the wynges of a storke) & they lyft vp the measure betwixt the earth and the heauen.
5:10Then spake I to the aungel that talked wt me: whyther wyl these beare the measure?
5:11And he sayd vnto me: into the lande of Synear to buyld them an house, whiche when it is prepared, the measure shalbe set there in his place.
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."
