The Great Bible 1539



2:1And you hath he quickened where as ye were deed in treaspasses and synnes,
2:2in the which in tyme passed ye walked, accordyng to the course of this worlde, euen after the gouerner that ruleth in the ayer, the sprete that nowe worketh in the chyldren of vnbelefe
2:3amonge whom we all had oure conuersacyon also in tyme past, in the lustes of oure flesshe, and fulfylled the wyll of the flesshe and of the mynde: and were by nature the chyldren of wrath, euen as well as other.
2:4But God which is riche in mercy (for his greate loue wher with he loued vs,
2:5euen when we were deed by synnes) quyckened vs together in Christ (by grace are ye saued)
2:6and raysed vs vp together with hym and made vs sytte together with him amonge them of heauen in Christ Iesu.
2:7That in tymes to come he myght shewe the exceadynge, ryches of hys grace, in kyndnes to vs warde thorowe Chryst Iesu.
2:8For by grace are ye made safe thorow fayth, and that not of youre selues. It is the gyfte of God,
2:9and commeth not of workes, lest eny man shulde boast him selfe
2:10For we are his worckmanshyppe, created in Chryst Iesu vnto good workes, whiche God ordeyned, that we shulde walke in them.
2:11Wherfore, remember that ye beynge in tyme passed gentyls in the flesshe, were called vncircumcisyon from that whych is called circumcisyon in the flesshe, which circumcision is made by handes:
2:12remember (I saye) that at that tyme ye were without Chryst, beynge aliauntes from the comen welth of Israel, and straungers from the testamentes of the promes hauynge no hope, and beynge with out God in this worlde.
2:13But nowe by the meanes of Christ Iesu, ye which somtyme were farre of, are made nye by the bloude of Chryst.
2:14For he is oure peace, which hath made of both one, and hath broken downe the wall that was a stoppe betwene vs,
2:15and hath also put awaye thorowe his flesshe, the cause of hatred, euen the lawe of commaundementes contayned in the lawe wrytten, for to make of twayne one newe man in hym selfe, so makynge peace,
2:16and to reconcyle both vnto God in one body thorowe the crosse, & slewe hatred therby:
2:17and came, and preached peace to you which were a farre of, and to them that were nye.
2:18For thorowe hym we both haue an intraunce, in one sprete vnto the father.
2:19Now therfore, ye are not straungers, and foreyners: but citesyns with the sayntes & of the housholde of God:
2:20and are buylt vpon the foundacyon of the Apostles and Prophetes, Iesus Chryst him selfe beynge the heed corner stone,
2:21in whom what buyldynge soeuer is coupled together, it groweth vnto an holy temple in the Lorde,
2:22in whom ye also are buylt together, to be an habitacion of God thorowe the ghost.

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."
