The Great Bible 1539



6:1And I sawe, when the lambe opened one of the seales, and I herde one of the foure beastes saye, as it were the noyse of thonder: come & se:
6:2and I sawe. And beholde ther was a whyte horsse: and he that sat on hym, had a bowe, and a crowne was geuen vnto hym, and he went forth conqueryng & for to ouer come.
6:3And when he had opened the seconde seale. I herde the seconde beaste, saye: come and se.
6:4And ther went out another horsse that was redd, & power was geuen to hym that satt theron, to take peace from the erth, & that they shuld kyll one another. And ther was geuen vnto hym a great swearde.
6:5And when he had opened the thyrde seale I herde the thyrde beaste saye, come & se. And I behelde, & lo, a black horsse: & he that sate on him, had a payre of balances in his hande.
6:6And I herde a voyce in the myddes of the foure beastes, saye: a measure of whete for a peny, & thre measures of barly for a peny and oyle and wyne se thou hurte not.
6:7And when he had opened the fourth seale, I herde the voyce of the fourth beaste saye, come and se:
6:8& I looked. And behold a pale horsse: & his name that sate on him was deeth, & hell folowed after hym, & power was geuen vnto them ouer the fourth parte of the erth, to kyll wyth swearde, & wyth honger, & wyth deeth that commeth of vermen of the erth.
6:9And when he had opened the fyft seale, I saw vnder the aultre the soules of them that were kylled for the worde of God, & for the testymony whych they had,
6:10& they cryed with a lowde voyce, sayinge: How longe taryest thou Lord, holy & true, to iudge & to auenge oure bloud on them that dwel on the erth?
6:11And longe whyte garmentes were geuen vnto euery one of them. And it was sayde vnto them, that they shuld reste yet for a lytle season vntyll the nomber of theyr felowes, and brethren, & of them that shulde be kylled as they were, were fulfylled.
6:12And I behelde, when he had opened the syxt seale: & lo, ther was a great erthquake and the sunne was as blacke as sacke cloth made of heere. And the mone wexed all, euen as bloud,
6:13and the starres of heauen fell vnto the erth, euen as a fygge tree casteth from her vntymely fygges, when she is shaken of a myghty wynde.
6:14And heauen vanisshed awaye, as a scroll when it is rolled to gether. And all mountaynes and yles, were moued out of theyr places.
6:15And the kynges of the erth, and the gret men, and the ryche men, and the chefe captaynes, & the myghty men, & euery bondman, and euery free man, hyd them selues in dennes, and in rockes of the hylles:
6:16and sayde to the hylles and rockes: fall on vs, & hyde vs from the presence of hym that sytteth on the seate, and from the wrath of the lambe:
6:17for the grete daye of his wrath is come, and who is able to endure?

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."
