The Great Bible 1539



10:1I Paul my selfe beseche you by the mekenesse & softenesse of Christ, which whan I am present amonge you, am of no reputacyon: but am bolde towarde you beynge absent.
10:2I beseche you, that I nede not to be bolde whan I am presente, with that same boldnesse, wherewith I am supposed to haue bene bolde, agaynst some, which repute vs as though we walked carnally.
10:3For though we walke in the flesshe, yet we do not warre flesshly.
10:4For the weapens of oure warrefare are not carnall thynges, but thynges myghty in God, to cast downe stronge holdes,
10:5wherewith we ouerthrowe councels and euery hye thynge that exalteth it selfe agaynst the knowledge of God, and brynge into captiuyte all ymaginacion to the obedience of Christ,
10:6& are ready to take vengeaunce on all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfylled.
10:7Loke ye on thinges after the vtter appearaunce? If any man trust in hym selfe, that he is Christes, lett hym consyder thys agayne of him selfe, that as he is Christes, euen so, are we Christes.
10:8For though I boaste my selfe somwhat more of oure auctorite (which the Lorde hath geuen vs to edifye, and not to destroye you) it shall not be to my shame:
10:9lest I shulde seme as though I wente aboute to make you afrayede with letters.
10:10For the epistles (sayth he) are sore, and stronge: but hys bodelye presence is weake, and hys speache rude.
10:11Lett hym that is soche thynke on thys wyse: that as we are in wordes by letters, when we are absent, soche are we in dedes, when we are present.
10:12For we cannot fynde in our hertes to make oure selnes of the nomber of them, or to compare oure selues to them, which prayse them selues. Neuerthelesse, whyle they measure them selues wt them selues, and compare them selues with them selues, they vnderstande nought.
10:13But we will not reioyce aboue measure: but accordynge to the measure of the rule, which God hath distributed vnto vs, a measure to reache euen vnto you.
10:14For we stretch not out our selues beyonde measure, as though we reached nott vnto you. For euen to you also haue we come wt the gospell of Christ,
10:15and we boast not our selues out of measure of other mennes labours: Yee, and we hope it wyll come to passe, that when your faith is increased amonge you, we shalbe magnifyed accordynge to oure measure, more largely,
10:16and that I shall preache the Gospell in those regions which are beyonde you: & not to boast of those thynges, which by another mans measure are prepared allready.
10:17But let him that reioyseth, reioyse in the Lorde.
10:18For he that prayseth hym selfe, is not alowed but he whom the Lorde prayseth.

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."
