The Great Bible 1539



13:1And I sawe a beaste ryse out of the see, hauyng seuen heddes, and ten hornes, and vpon his hornes ten crounes, & vpon his heed, the name of blasphemy.
13:2And the beast which I sawe, was lyke a catte of the mountayne, and hys fete were as the fete of a beare, & hys mouth as the mouth of a lyon. And the dragon gaue hym his power & his seate, & gret auctorite:
13:3and I sawe one of his heedes as it were wounded to deeth, & his dedly wounde was healed. And all the worlde wondred at the beast,
13:4& they worshypped the dragon, whych gaue power vnto the beast, and they worshypped the beast sayinge: who is lyke vnto the beast? who is able to warre with hym?
13:5And ther was geuen vnto hym a mouth, that spake great thynges & blasphemyes, & power was geuen vnto hym, to do .xlii. monethes.
13:6And he opened his mouth vnto blasphemy agaynst God, to blaspheme his name & his tabernacle, & them that dwell in heauen.
13:7And it was geuen vnto hym to make warre with the Saynctes, & to ouercome them. And power was geuen him ouer all kynred, and people, and tonge, and nacion,
13:8and all that dwell vpon the erth worshypt hym: whose names are not written in the boke of lyfe of the lambe, which was kylled from the begynnynge of the worlde.
13:9If eny man haue an eare let hym heare.
13:10He that leadeth into captyuyte, shall go into captyuyte: he that kylleth with a swearde, must be kylled with a swearde. Heare is the pacyence, & the fayth of the saynctes.
13:11And I behelde another beast comminge vp out of the erth, and he had two hornes lyke a lambe, & he spake as dyd the dragon.
13:12And he dyd all that the fyrste beast coulde do in his presence, & he caused the erth, & them which dwel therin, to worshyppe the fyrst beast, whose dedly wounde was healed.
13:13And he dyd grett wonders, so that he made fyre come doune from heauen in the syght of men.
13:14And deceaued them that dwelt on the erth, by the meanes of those sygnes whyche he had power to do in the syght of the beast, sayinge to them that dwelt on the erth: that they shuld make an ymage vnto the beast, whych had the wounde of a swearde, and dyd lyue.
13:15And he had power to geue a sprete vnto the ymage of the beast, & that the ymage of the beast shuld speake, and shuld cause, that as many as wolde not worshyppe the ymage of the beast, shuld be kylled.
13:16And he made all, both small & gret, ryche & poore, fre & bond, to receaue a marke in theyr ryght handes or in theyr forheddes.
13:17And that no man myght by or sell, saue he that had the marke or the name of the beast, other the nombre of his name.
13:18Here is wysdome. Let hym that hath wytt, count the nombre of the beast. For it is the nombre of a man, and his nombre is syxe hondred, threscore, and syxe.

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."
