King James Bible 1611



4:1Now I say, that the heire, as long as hee is a child, differeth nothing from a seruant, though hee bee Lord of all,
4:2But is vnder tutors and gouernours vntill the time appointed of the father.
4:3Euen so we, when wee were children, were in bondage vnder the Elements of the world:
4:4But when the fulnes of the time was come, God sent foorth his Sonne made of a woman, made vnder the Law,
4:5To redeeme them that were vnder the Law, that we might receiue the adoption of sonnes.
4:6And because yee are sonnes, God hath sent foorth the spirit of his Sonne into your hearts, crying Abba, Father.
4:7Wherefore thou art no more a seruant, but a sonne; and if a sonne, then an heire of God through Christ.
4:8Howbeit, then when ye knew not God, yee did seruice vnto them which by nature are no Gods.
4:9But now after that yee haue knowen God, or rather are knowen of God, how turne ye againe to the weak and beggerly Elements, whereunto ye desire againe to be in bondage?
4:10Yee obserue dayes, and moneths, and times, and yeeres.
4:11I am afraide of you, lest I haue bestowed vpon you labour in vaine.
4:12Brethren, I beseech you, be as I am; for I am as ye are, ye haue not iniured me at all.
4:13Ye know how through infirmitie of the flesh, I preached the Gospel vnto you at the first.
4:14And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor reiected, but receiued mee as an Angel of God, euen as Christ Iesus.
4:15Where is then the blessednes you spake of? for I beare you record, that if it had bin possible, ye would haue plucked out your own eyes, and haue giuen them to me.
4:16Am I therefore become your enemie, because I tell you the trueth?
4:17They zelously affect you, but not well: yea, they would exclude you, that you might affect them.
4:18But it is good to bee zealously affected alwayes in a good thing, and not onely when I am present with you.
4:19My litle children, of whom I trauaile in birth againe, vntill Christ bee formed in you:
4:20I desire to bee present with you now, and to change my voyce, for I stand in doubt of you.
4:21Tell me, ye that desire to be vnder the Law, doe ye not heare the Law?
4:22For it is written, that Abraham had two sonnes, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.
4:23But he who was of the bondwoman, was borne after the flesh: but hee of the freewoman, was by promise.
4:24Which things are an Allegorie; for these are the two Couenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.
4:25For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Ierusalem, which now is, and is in bondage with her children.
4:26But Ierusalem which is aboue is free, which is the mother of vs all.
4:27For it is written, Reioyce thou barren that bearest not, breake foorth and cry thou that traueilest not; for the desolate hath many moe children then she which hath an husband.
4:28Now wee, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.
4:29But as then hee that was borne after the flesh, persecuted him that was borne after the Spirit, euen so it is now.
4:30Neuerthelesse, what saith the Scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her sonne: for the son of the bondwoman shall not bee heire with the son of the freewoman.
4:31So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.
King James Bible 1611

King James Bible 1611

The commissioning of the King James Bible took place at a conference at the Hampton Court Palace in London England in 1604. When King James came to the throne he wanted unity and stability in the church and state, but was well aware that the diversity of his constituents had to be considered. There were the Papists who longed for the English church to return to the Roman Catholic fold and the Latin Vulgate. There were Puritans, loyal to the crown but wanting even more distance from Rome. The Puritans used the Geneva Bible which contained footnotes that the king regarded as seditious. The Traditionalists made up of Bishops of the Anglican Church wanted to retain the Bishops Bible.

The king commissioned a new English translation to be made by over fifty scholars representing the Puritans and Traditionalists. They took into consideration: the Tyndale New Testament, the Matthews Bible, the Great Bible and the Geneva Bible. The great revision of the Bible had begun. From 1605 to 1606 the scholars engaged in private research. From 1607 to 1609 the work was assembled. In 1610 the work went to press, and in 1611 the first of the huge (16 inch tall) pulpit folios known today as "The 1611 King James Bible" came off the printing press.
