The Great Bible 1539



5:1For we knowe that yf oure erthy mancion of this dwellyng were destroyed, we haue a byldinge of God, an habitacyon not made with handes, but eternall in heauen.
5:2For therfore syghe we, desyring to be clothed with oure mansion which is from heauen:
5:3so yet, yf that we be founde clothed, & not naked.
5:4For we that are in this tabernacle, syghe & are greued because we wold not be vnclothed, but wolde be clothed vpon, that mortalite myght be swalowed vp of lyfe.
5:5He that hath ordeyned vs for this thynge, is God: which very same hath geuen vnto vs the ernest of the sprete.
5:6Therfore, we are alwaye of good cheare, and knowe, that as longe as we are at home in the body, we are absent from God.
5:7For we walke in fayth, not after outward appearaunce.
5:8Neuerthelesse, we are of good comforte, and had leuer to be absent from the body, and to be present with God.
5:9Wherfore, whether we be at home or from home, we endeuoure oure selues, to please him.
5:10For we must all appeare before the iudgement seate of Christ, that euery man maye receaue the workes of hys body accordynge to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
5:11Seynge then that we knowe, how the Lorde is to be feared, we fare fayre wyth men. For we are knowen well ynough vnto God. I trust also that we are knowen in youre consciences.
5:12For we prayse not oure selues agayne vnto you, but geue you an occasyon to reioyce of vs, that ye maye haue some what against them, whych reioyce in the face, and not in the herte.
5:13For yf we be to feruent, to God are we to feruent. Or If we kepe measure, for youre cause kepe we measure.
5:14For the loue of Christ constrayneth vs, because we thus iudge, that yf one dyed for all, then were all deed,
5:15and he dyed for all: that they whych lyue, shuld not hence forth lyue vnto them selues, but vnto him whych dyed for them, & rose agayne.
5:16Wherfore, hence forth knowe we no man after the flesshe. In so moch though we haue knowen Christ after the flesshe, now yet hence forth knowe we him so nomoare.
5:17Therfore yf eny man be in Christ, he is a newe creature Olde thynges are passed awaye, beholde, all thinges are become new.
5:18Neuerthelesse, all thynges are of God, whych hath reconcyled vs vnto him selfe by Iesus Christ, and hath geuen to vs the offyce to preache the attonement.
5:19For God was in Christ, and made agrement betwene the worlde and him selfe, & imputed not their synnes vnto them, and hath commytted to vs the preachynge of the attonement.
5:20Now then are we messengers in the rowme of Christ euen as though God dyd beseche you thorow vs. So praye we you in Christes stede, that ye be reconcyled vnto God:
5:21for he made him to be synne for vs, which knewe no synne, that we by his meanes shulde be that ryghtewesnes, which before God is alowed.

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."
