The Great Bible 1539



4:1I therfore (which am a presonner of the Lordes) exhorte you, that ye walke worthy of the vocacyon wherwith ye are called,
4:2with all lowlynes and mekenesse, with humblenes of mynde, forbearynge one another thorowe loue,
4:3and be diligent to kepe the vnitie of the sprete thorowe the bonde of peace,
4:4beynge one body, and one sprete, euen as ye are called in one hope of your callinge.
4:5One Lorde, one fayth, one baptyme
4:6one God and father of all, which is aboue all and thorowe all, and in you all.
4:7Unto euery one of vs is geuen grace, accordynge to the measure of the gyfte of Chryst.
4:8Wherfore he sayth: whan he went vp an hye, he ledde captiuitye captyue, and gaue gyftes vnto men.
4:9That he ascended: what meaneth it? but that he also descended fyrst into the lowest partes of the erth?
4:10He that descended, is euen the same also that ascended vp, aboue all heauens, to fulfyll all thynges.
4:11And the very same made some Apostles, some Prophetes, some Euangelistes, some Shepherdes and Teachers:
4:12to the edifyenge of the saynctes, to the worke and ministracyon, euen to the edifyinge of the body of Chryst,
4:13tyll we all come to the vnitye of fayth, and knowledge of the sonne of God, vnto a perfecte man, vnto the measure of the full perfecte age of Chryst
4:14That we hence forth shulde be nomore chyldren, wauerynge & caryed aboute with euery wynde of doctrine, by the wylynes of men, thorowe craftynes, wherby they laye a wayte for vs to deceaue vs.
4:15But let vs folowe the trueth in loue, and in all thynges growe in hym, which is the heed, euen Christ,
4:16in whom yf all the body be coupled and knet together thorow out euery ioynt wherwith one ministreth to another (accordynge to the operacyon as euery parte hath hys measure) he increaseth the body, vnto the edifyinge of it selfe thorowe loue.
4:17This I saye therfore, and testifye thorowe the Lorde, that ye hence forth walke not, as other Gentyls walke, in vanite of theyr minde,
4:18whyle they are blinded in their vnderstandynge, beynge farre from a godly lyfe, by the meanes of the ignorancy that is in them, and because of the blyndnes of their hertes:
4:19which beynge past repentaunce, haue geuen them selues ouer vnto wantannes, to worke all manner of vnclennes, euen with gredines.
4:20But ye haue not so learned Christ.
4:21If so be that ye haue hearde of him, and haue bene taught in him, as the trueth is in Iesu:
4:22(as concernynge the conuersacyon in tyme past) to laye from you that olde man, which is corrupte, accordynge to the deceauable lustes.
4:23To be renued also in the sprete of youre mynde,
4:24and to put on that newe man, which after God is shapen in ryghte wesnes and true holynes.
4:25Wherfore, put awaye lyinge, & speake euery man truth vnto his neyghboure, for as moche as we are members one of another.
4:26Be angrye, and synne not: let not the sunne go doune vpon youre wrath,
4:27nether geue place vnto the backbyter.
4:28Let hym that stole, steale nomore but let him rather laboure wt his handes the thynge which is good, that he maye geue vnto him that nedeth.
4:29Let no fylthy communicacion procede out of youre mouth: but that which is good to edifye wt all, as oft as nede is that it maye minister grace vnto the hearers.
4:30And greue not ye the holy sprete of God by whom ye are sealed vnto the daye of redempcyon.
4:31Let all bitternes & fearsnes & wrath & rorynge & cursyd speakynge, be put awaye from you, with all maliciousnes.
4:32Be ye courteouse one to another, mercyfull, forgeuynge one another, euen as God for Christes sake hath forgeuen you.

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."
