1:16cease not to geue thankes for you, makynge mencyon of you in my prayers:
1:17that the God of oure Lorde Iesus Chryst, the father of glory, maye geue vnto you the sprete of wysdome and reuelacyon, by the knowledge of him selfe,
1:18and lyghten the eyes of youre myndes, that ye maye knowe what the hope is, where vnto he hath called you, and howe riche the glorye is of his inheritaunce vpon the saynctes,
1:19and what is the excedinge greatnes of his power to vs warde, which beleue accordynge to the workynge of that his mighty power,

1:22and hath put all thynges vnder his fete, and hath made him aboue all thinges the heed of the congregacyon,
1:23which is his body and the fulnes of him, that fylleth all in all.

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."
