The Great Bible 1539



1:1Paul an apostle, not of men, nether by man: but by Iesus Christ, and by God the father, which raysed him vp from deeth:
1:2and all the brethren which are with me. Unto the congregacions of Galacia.
1:3Grace be with you, and peace from God the father, & from oure Lorde Iesus Christ,
1:4which gaue hym selfe for our synnes to delyuer vs from thys present euyll worlde, accordynge to the wyll of God oure father,
1:5to whom be prayse for euer and euer. Amen.
1:6I maruayle, that ye are so soone turned (from Christ which called you by grace) vnto another Gospe
1:7which is nothinge elles, but that there be some which trouble you, & intende to peruerte the Gospell of Christ.
1:8Neuerthelesse, though we oure selues, or an angell from heauen, preache any other Gospell vnto you, then that which we haue preached vnto you, let him be acursed.
1:9As we said before, so saye I nowe agayne, yf eny man preache eny other Gospell vnto you, then that ye haue receaued, lett hym be acursed.
1:10Do I now perswade men, or God? Other do I seke to please men? For yf I had hythereto studyed to please men, I were not the seruaunt of Christ.
1:11I certifye you brethren, that the Gospell which was preached of me, was not after the maner of men.
1:12For I nether receaued it, ner learned it of man, but by the reuelacyon of Iesus Christ.
1:13For ye haue hearde of my conuersacyon in tyme past, in the Iewes waye, howe that beyonde measure, I persecuted the congregacyon of God, and spoyled it,
1:14and preuayled in the Iewes waye aboue many of my companions in myne awne nacyon beynge a very feruent mayntener of the tradicyons of the elders.
1:15But when it pleased God, which seperated me from my mothers wombe, and called me here unto by hys grace,
1:16for to declare hys sonne by me, that I shulde preache hym amonge the Heathen: immediatly I commened not of the matter with flessh & bloude,
1:17nether returned to Ierusalem, to them which were apostles before me: but went my wayes into Arabia, and came agayne vnto Damasco.
1:18Then after thre yeare, I returned to Ierusalem to se Peter, and abode with hym fyftene dayes.
1:19Other of the apostles sawe I none, saue Iames the Lordes brother.
1:20The thinges therfore which I wryte vnto you: beholde, before God I lye not.
1:21After that I came into the coastes of Siria and Cilicia,
1:22and was vnknowen as touchinge my person vnto the congregacions of Iewry, which were in Christ.
1:23But thys they hearde onely, that he which persecuted vs in tyme past, nowe preacheth the fayth, which before he destroyed.
1:24And they glorified God in me.

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."
