6:1Moreouer, I turned me, lyftyng vp myne eyes, and loked, & beholde, there came foure charetes out from betwyxte two hylles, whiche hylles were of brasse.
6:2In the fyrst charret were red horses, in the second charet were black horses,
6:3in the third charet were whyte horses, in the fourth charet were horses of dyuers colours and strong
6:4Then spake I, and sayde vnto the aungell that talked with me: O lord what are these.
6:5The aungell answered, and sayde, vnto me. These are the .iiii. wyndes of the heauen, which be come forth to stande before the ruler of all the earth.
6:6That with the blacke horse wente into the lande of the north, & the white folowed them, and the spekled horses wente forth towarde the south.
6:7These horses were very stronge, and wente out: & sought to go & take theyr iourney ouer the whole earth. And he sayde: get you hence, & go thorow the worlde. So they wente thorow out the world.
6:8Then cryed he vpon me, and spake vnto me, sayeng: behold, these that go towarde the north, shall styll my wrath in the north countre.
6:9And the worde of the Lord came vnto me, sayeng.
6:10Take of thou presoners that are come from Babylon: namely, Heldai, Tobiah, & Idaia: & come thou the same daye, & go into the house of Iosiah, the sonne of Sophony.

6:12& speake vnto hym. Thus sayth the Lorde of hoostes. Behold, the man whose name is the braunche: & he that shall sprynge vp after him, shall buylde vp the temple of the Lorde,
6:13yee, euen he shal buylde vp the temple of the Lorde. He shall beare the prayse, he shal syt vpon the Lordes trone, & haue the dominacyon. A preste shal he be also vpon his trone, & a peaceable councel shalbe betwixte them both.
6:14And the crownes shalbe in the temple of the Lorde, for a remembraunce vnto Helem, Tobiah, Idaiah, and Hen the sonne of Sophony. And soch as be farre of, shal come & buylde the temple of the Lorde,
6:15that ye maye knowe, how that the Lorde of hoostes hath sent me vnto you. And thys shall come to passe, yf ye wyll herken dilygently vnto the voyce of the Lorde youre God.

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."
