1:2and Tymothe, brother, to hem that ben at Colose, hooli and feithful britheren in Crist Jhesu,

1:4and the loue that ye han to alle hooli men,
1:5for the hope that is kept to you in heuenes. Which ye herden in the word of treuthe of the gospel,
1:6that cam to you, as also it is in al the world, and makith fruyt, and wexith, as in you, fro that dai in which ye herden and knewen the grace of God in treuthe.
1:7As ye lerneden of Epafras, oure felawe most dereworthe, which is a trewe mynystre of Jhesu Crist for you;
1:8which also schewide to vs youre louyng in spirit.
1:9Therfor we fro the dai in which we herden, ceessen not to preye for you, and to axe, that ye be fillid with the knowing of his wille in al wisdom and goostli vndurstondyng;

1:11and ben coumfortid in al vertu bi the miyt of his clerenesse, in al pacience and long abiding with ioye,
1:12that ye do thankyngis to God and to the fadir, which made you worthi in to the part of eritage of hooli men in liyt.
1:13Which delyueride vs fro the power of derknessis, and translatide in to the kyngdom of the sone of his louyng,
1:14in whom we han ayenbiyng and remyssioun of synnes.
1:15Which is the ymage of God vnuysible, the first bigetun of ech creature.
1:16For in hym alle thingis ben maad, in heuenes and in erthe, visible and vnuysible, ether trones, ether dominaciouns, ether princehodes, ethir poweris, alle thingis ben maad of nouyt bi hym, and in hym,
1:17and he is bifor alle, and alle thingis ben in hym.
1:18And he is heed of the bodi of the chirche; which is the bigynnyng and the firste bigetun of deede men, that he holde the firste dignyte in alle thingis.
1:19For in hym it pleside al plente to inhabite,
1:20and bi hym alle thingis to be recounselid in to hym, and made pees bi the blood of his cros, tho thingis that ben in erthis, ether that ben in heuenes.
1:21And whanne ye weren sumtyme aliened, and enemyes bi wit in yuele werkis,
1:22now he hath recounselid you in the bodi of his fleisch bi deth, to haue you hooli, and vnwemmyd, and with out repreef bifor hym.
1:23If netheles ye dwellen in the feith, foundid, and stable, and vnmouable fro the hope of the gospel that ye han herd, which is prechid in al creature that is vndur heuene. Of which Y Poul am maad mynystre,
1:24and now Y haue ioye in passioun for you, and Y fille tho thingis that failen of the passiouns of Crist in my fleisch, for his bodi, that is the chirche.
1:25Of which Y Poul am maad mynystre bi the dispensacioun of God, that is youun to me in you,
1:26that Y fille the word of God, the priuyte, that was hid fro worldis and generaciouns. But now it is schewid to his seyntis,
1:27to whiche God wold make knowun the richessis of the glorie of this sacrament in hethene men, which is Crist in you, the hope of glorie.
1:28Whom we schewen, repreuynge ech man, and techinge `ech man in al wisdom, that we offre ech man perfit in Crist Jhesu.
1:29In which thing also Y trauele in stryuynge bi the worching of hym, that he worchith in me in vertu.

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.
