John Wycliffe Bible 1382



6:1Sones, obeische ye to youre fadir and modir, in the Lord; for this thing is riytful.
6:2Onoure thou thi fadir and thi modir, that is the firste maundement in biheest;
6:3that it be wel to thee, and that thou be long lyuynge on the erthe.
6:4And, fadris, nyle ye terre youre sones to wraththe; but nurische ye hem in the teching and chastising of the Lord.
6:5Seruauntis, obeische ye to fleischli lordis with drede and trembling, in simplenesse of youre herte, as to Crist;
6:6not seruynge at the iye, as plesinge to men, but as seruauntis of Crist; doynge the wille of God bi discrecioun,
6:7with good wille seruynge as to the Lord, and not as to men;
6:8witinge that ech man, what euere good thing he schal do, he schal resseyue this of the Lord, whether seruaunt, whether fre man.
6:9And, ye lordis, do the same thingis to hem, foryyuynge manaasis; witinge that bothe her Lord and youre is in heuenes, and the taking of persones is not anentis God.
6:10Her aftirward, britheren, be ye coumfortid in the Lord, and in the miyt of his vertu.
6:11Clothe you with the armere of God, that ye moun stonde ayens aspiynges of the deuel.
6:12For whi stryuyng is not to vs ayens fleisch and blood, but ayens princis and potestatis, ayens gouernours of the world of these derknessis, ayens spiritual thingis of wickidnesse, in heuenli thingis.
6:13Therfor take ye the armere of God, that ye moun ayenstonde in the yuel dai; and in alle thingis stonde perfit.
6:14Therfor stonde ye, and be gird aboute youre leendis in sothefastnesse, and clothid with the haburioun of riytwisnesse,
6:15and youre feet schood in making redi of the gospel of pees.
6:16In alle thingis take ye the scheld of feith, in which ye moun quenche alle the firy dartis of `the worste.
6:17And take ye the helm of helthe, and the swerd of the Goost, that is, the word of God.
6:18Bi al preier and bisechyng preie ye al tyme in spirit, and in hym wakinge in al bisynesse, and bisechyng for alle hooli men, and for me;
6:19that word be youun to me in openyng of my mouth, with trist to make knowun the mysterie of the gospel,
6:20for which Y am set in message in a chayne; so that in it Y be hardi to speke, as it bihoueth me.
6:21And ye wite, what thingis ben aboute me, what Y do, Titicus, my moost dere brother, and trewe mynystre in the Lord, schal make alle thingis knowun to you;
6:22whom Y sente to you for this same thing, that ye knowe what thingis ben aboute vs, and that he coumforte youre hertis.
6:23Pees to britheren, and charite, with feith of God oure fadir, and of the Lord Jhesu Crist.
6:24Grace with alle men that louen oure Lord Jhesu Crist in vncorrupcioun. Amen, `that is, So be it.

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.
