John Wycliffe Bible 1382



2:1And Y ordeynede this ilke thing at me, that Y schulde not come eftsoone in heuynes to you.
2:2For if Y make you sori, who is he that gladith me, but he that is soreuful of me?
2:3And this same thing Y wroot to you, that whanne Y come, Y haue not sorewe on sorewe, of the whiche it behofte me to haue ioie. And Y triste in you alle, that my ioye is of alle you.
2:4For of myche tribulacioun and angwisch of herte Y wroot to you by many teeris, not that ye be sori, but that ye wite what charite Y haue more plenteuously in you.
2:5For if ony man hath maad me soreuful, he hath not maad me sorewful but a parti, that Y charge not you alle.
2:6This blamyng that ys maad of manye, suffisith to hym, that is sich oon;
2:7so that ayenward ye rathir foryyuen and coumfort, lest perauenture he that is suche a maner man, be sopun vp bi more grete heuynesse.
2:8For which thing Y biseche you, that ye conferme charite in to hym.
2:9For whi therfor Y wroot this, that Y knowe youre preuyng, whether in alle thingis ye ben obedient.
2:10For to whom ye han foryyuen ony thing, also Y haue foryyue. For Y that that Y foryaf, yif Y foryaf ony thing, haue youun for you in the persone of Crist,
2:11that we be not disseyued of Sathanas; for we knowen hise thouytis.
2:12But whanne Y was comun to Troade for the gospel of Crist, and a dore was opened to me in the Lord,
2:13Y hadde not rest to my spirit, for Y foond not my brother Tite, but Y seide to hem farewel, and Y passide in to Macedonye.
2:14And Y do thankyngis to God, that euere more makith vs to haue victorie in Crist Jhesu, and schewith bi vs the odour of his knowing in ech place;
2:15for we ben the good odour of Crist to God, among these that ben maad saaf, and among these that perischen.
2:16To othere sotheli odour of deth in to deth, but to othere we ben odour of lijf in to lijf. And to these thingis who is so able?
2:17For we ben not as many, that don auoutrie bi the word of God, but we speken of clennesse, as of God, bifor God in Crist.

John Wycliffe Bible 1382

The Wycliffe Bible is the only Bible here that was not translated from the Textus Receptus. Its inclusion here is for the Bible's historic value and for comparison in the English language.

John Wycliffe, an Oxford professor produced the first hand-written English language Bible manuscripts in the 1380's. While it is doubtful Wycliffe himself translated the versions that bear his name, he certainly can be considered the driving force behind the project. He strongly believed in having the scriptures available to the people.

Wycliffe, was well-known throughout Europe for his opposition to the teaching of the organized Church, which he believed to be contrary to the Bible. With the help of his followers (called Lollards), Wycliffe produced dozens of English language manuscript copies of the scriptures. They were translated out of the Latin Vulgate, which was the only source text available to Wycliffe. The Pope was so infuriated by his teachings and his translation of the Bible into English, that 44 years after Wycliffe died, he ordered the bones to be dug-up, crushed, and scattered in the river.
