The Great Bible 1539



21:1And I sawe a newe heauen and a new earth. For the fyrst heauen, and the fyrst earth were vanysshed awaye, and ther was nomore See.
21:2And I Iohn sawe that holy cytie, newe Ierusalem come downe from God out of heauen, prepared as a bryde garnisshed for her husband.
21:3And I herde a greate voyce out of heauen sayinge: beholde, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he wyll dwell wyth them. And they shall be hys people, and God hym selfe shalbe wyth them, and be theyr God.
21:4And God shall wype awaye all teares from theyr eyes. And there shalbe nomore deeth, nether sorowe, nether cryenge, nether shall ther be eny more payne, for the olde thynges are gone.
21:5And he that sate vpon the seate, sayde: Beholde, I make all thynges newe. And he sayde vnto me: wryte, for these wordes are faythfull and true.
21:6And he sayd vnto me: it is done, I am Alpha and Omega, the begynnyng & the ende I wyll geue to hym that is a thyrst, of the well of the water of lyfe, fre.
21:7He that ouer commeth shall enheret all thynges, and I wyll be hys God, and he shalbe my sonne.
21:8But the fearfull and vnbeleuynge, and the abhominable, and murdrers, & whormongers, and sorcerers, and ydolaters, and all lyars shall haue theyr parte in the lake which burnyth with fyre and brymstone, which is the seconde death.
21:9And there cam vnto me one of the seuen Angels which had the seuen vyalles full of the seuen last plages: & talked with me sayinge: come hyther, I wyll shewe the the bryde, the lambes wyfe.
21:10And he caryed me awaye in the sprete to a great and an hye mountayne, and he shewed me the great cytie holy Ierusalem, descendyng out of heauen from God:
21:11hauyng the bryghtnes of God. And her shynynge was lyke vnto a stone moste precious, euen lyke a Iasper cleare as Cristall:
21:12& had walles great & hye, & had .xii. gates & at the gates .xii. Angels: and names written, whych are the names of the .xii. trybes of Israell:
21:13on the East parte .iii. gates, & on the Northside .iii. gates, & towardes the South .iii. gates, and from the West thre gates,
21:14and the wall of the cytie had .xii. foundacyons: and in them the twelue names of the lambes .xii. apostles.
21:15And he that talked with me, had a golden reade to measure the cytie with all and the gates therof & the wall therof.
21:16And the cytie was bylt .iiii. square, and the length was as large as the bredth, & he measured the cytie with the rede .xii.M. furlonges: and the length & the bredth, and the heyth of it, were equall.
21:17And he measured the wal therof, an .cxliiii. cubytes: the measure that the angell had, was after the measure that man vseth.
21:18And the byldynge of the wal of it was of Iasper. And the cytie was pure golde, lyke vnto cleare glasse,
21:19and the foundacions of the wall of the cytie were garnisshed with al maner of precious stones. The fyrst foundacion was Iaspis, the seconde Saphyre, the thyrde a Calcedony, the fourth an Emeralde,
21:20the fyft Sardonix, the syxte Sardeos, the seuenth Crysolite, the eyght Berall, the .ix. a Topas, the tenth a Crusoprasos, the eleuenth a Iacynte, the twelueth an Amathist.
21:21The twelue gates were twelue pearles, euery gate was of one pearle, and the strete of the cytie was pure golde, as thorow shynynge glasse.
21:22And I sawe no temple therin. For the Lorde God almighty and the lambe are the temple of it.
21:23And the cytie hath no nede of the sonne, nether of the mone to lighten it. For the brightnes of God dyd lyght it, and the lambe was the lyght of it.
21:24And the people whych are saued shall walke in the lyght of it. And the kinges of the earth shall brynge theyr glory vnto it.
21:25And the gates of it are not shut by daye. For there shalbe no nyght there.
21:27And there shall enter into it none vncleane thinge, nether whatsoeuer worketh abhomynacion or maketh lyes: but they only which are wrytten in the lambes boke of lyfe.

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."
