The Great Bible 1539



4:1After this I loked, and beholde a dore was open in heauen, and the fyrst voyce whych I hearde, was as it were of a trompett talkynge wyth me, whych sayde: come vp hyther, and I wyll shewe the thynges: whych must be fulfylled hereafter.
4:2And immediatly I was in the sprete: & beholde, a seate was sett in heauen, and one sate on the seate.
4:3And he that sat, was to loke vpon, lyke vnto a Iasper stone and a Sardyne stone. And ther was a rayne bowe aboute the seate, in syght lyke to an Emeralde.
4:4And aboute the seate were .xxiiii. seates. And vpon the seates .xxiiii. elders syttyng, clothed in whyte rayment, and had on theyr heades crownes of golde.
4:5And out of the seate proceded lyghtnynges, & thundrynges, & voyces, & ther were seuen lampes of fyre, burnynge before the seate, whych are the seuen spretes of God,
4:6And before the seate ther was a see of glasse, lyke vnto Cristal, and in the myddes of the seate, & rounde about the seate were foure beastes full of eyes before & behynde.
4:7And the fyrst beast was lyke a lyon, & the seconde beaste lyke a calfe, & the thyrde beast had a face as a man, & the fourth beast was lyke a flyinge Egle.
4:8And the foure beastes had eche one of them .vi. wynges about hym, & they were full of eyes wt in. And they had no rest daye nether nyght saying. Holy, holy, holy, Lord God almyghty, whych was, and is, and is to come.
4:9And when those beastes gaue glory and honour & thankes to hym that sate on the seate, (which lyueth for euer & euer)
4:10the .xxiiii. elders fell downe before hym that sat on the trone & worshypped hym that lyueth for euer & cast theyr crounes before the trone saying:
4:11thou arte worthy o Lord to receaue glory, & honoure, and power, for thou hast created all thynges, & for thy willes sake they are, & were created.

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."
