John Wycliffe Bible 1382



1:1Poul the apostle, not of men, ne bi man, but bi Jhesu Crist, and God the fadir,
1:2that reiside hym fro deth, and alle the britheren that ben with me, to the chirchis of Galathie,
1:3grace to you and pees of God the fadir, and of the Lord Jhesu Crist,
1:4that yaf hym silf for oure synnes, to delyuere vs fro the present wickid world, bi the wille of God and of oure fadir,
1:5to whom is worschip and glorie in to worldis of worldis. Amen.
1:6I wondur, that so soone ye be thus moued fro hym that clepid you in to the grace of Crist, in to another euangelie; which is not anothir,
1:7but that ther ben summe that troublen you, and wolen mysturne the euangelie of Crist.
1:8But thouy we, or an aungel of heuene, prechide to you, bisidis that that we han prechid to you, be he acursid.
1:9As Y haue seid bifore, and now eftsoones Y seie, if ony preche to you bisidis that that ye han vndurfongun, be he cursid.
1:10For now whether counsele Y men, or God? or whether Y seche to plese men? If Y pleside yit men, Y were not Cristis seruaunt.
1:11For, britheren, Y make knowun to you the euangelie, that was prechid of me, for it is not bi man;
1:12ne Y took it of man, ne lernyde, but bi reuelacioun of Jhesu Crist.
1:13For ye han herd my conuersacioun sumtyme in the Jurie, and that Y pursuede passyngli the chirche of God, and fauyt ayen it.
1:14And Y profitide in the Jurie aboue many of myn eueneldis in my kynrede, and was more aboundauntli a folewere of my fadris tradiciouns.
1:15But whanne it pleside hym, that departide me fro my modir wombe,
1:16and clepide bi his grace, to schewe his sone in me, that Y schulde preche hym among the hethene, anoon Y drowy me not to fleisch and blood; ne Y cam to Jerusalem to the apostlis,
1:17that weren tofor me, but Y wente in to Arabie, and eftsoones Y turnede ayen in to Damask.
1:18And sith thre yeer aftir Y cam to Jerusalem, to se Petre, and Y dwellide with hym fiftene daies;
1:19but Y sawy noon othere of the apostlis, but James, oure Lordis brother.
1:20And these thingis which Y write to you, lo! tofor God Y lie not.
1:21Afterward Y cam in to the coostis of Syrie and Cilicie.
1:22But Y was vnknowun bi face to the chirchis of Judee, that weren in Crist; and thei hadden oonli an heryng,
1:23that he that pursuede vs sum tyme, prechide now the feith, ayens which he fauyte sum tyme;
1:24and in me thei glorifieden God.

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.
