1:14His heed, & his heares were whyte, as whyte woll, & as snowe and hys eyes were as a flame of fyre:
1:15& hys fete lyke vnto brasse, as though they brent in a fornace, and his voyce as the sounde of many waters.
1:16And he had in his ryghte hande .vii. starres. And out of his mouthe went a sharpe two edged swearde. And his face shone, euen as the sonne in his strength.
1:17And when I saw him, I fell at his fete. euen as deed. And he layde his ryghte hande vpon me, saying vnto me: feare not. I am the fyrst & the laste,
1:18& and am a lyue, and was deed. And beholde I am a lyue for euermore & haue the keyes of hell & of deeth.
1:19Wryte therfore the thynges which thou hast sene, and the thynges which are, and the thinges which must be fulfylled here after:
1:20the mistery of the .vii. starres which thou sawest in my ryght hande, and the .vii. golden candelstickes. The .vii. starres are the messengers of the .vii. congregacions, And the seuen candelstickes which thou sawest, are the seuen congregacyons.

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."
