1 So whan men beganne to multiplie vpon the earth, and had begot them doughters, 2 the children of God sawe the doughters of men, that they were fayre, and toke vnto the wyues soch as they liked. 3 Then sayde ye LORDE: My sprete shal not allwaye stryue with man, for he is but flesh also. I wil yet geue him respyte an hundreth and twety yeares. 4 There were giauntes also in the worlde at that tyme. For whan the children of God had lyen with the daughters of men, and begotten them children, ye same (children) became mightie in the worlde, and men of renowne. 5 But whan the LORDE sawe yt the wickednes of man was increased vpon ye earth, and that all ye thought and imaginacion of their hert was but onely euell contynually, 6 it repented him, that he had made man vpon the earth, and he sorowed in his hert, 7 and sayde: I wyll destroye man kynde which I haue made, from the earth: both man, beest, worme, and foule vnder the heauen: for it repenteth me, that I haue made them. 8 Neuertheles Noe founde grace in the sight of the LORDE. 9 This is ye generacion of Noe. Noe was a righteous and parfecte ma, and led a godly life in his tyme, 10 and begat thre sonnes: Sem, Ham and Iaphet. 11 Notwithstondinge ye earth was corrupte in ye sight of God, and full of myschefe. 12 Then God loked vpon ye earth: and lo, it was corrupte (for all flesh had corrupte his waye vpon the earth.) 13 Then sayde God vnto Noe: The. ende of all flesh is come before me, for the earth is full of myschefe before them. And lo, I wyll destroye them with the earth. 14 Make the an Arcke of Pyne tre, and make chambers in it, and pitch it within and without with pitch 15 and make it after this fashion: The length shal be thre hundreth cubites, the bredth fiftie cubites, and the heyght thirtie cubites. 16 A wyndow shalt thou make aboue of a cubyte greate: but the dore shalt thou set in the myddest in the syde of it: And the Arke shalt thou make with thre loftes one aboue another. 17 For lo, I wyll bringe a floude of water vpon the earth, to destroye all flesh (wherin the breth of life is) vnder the heaue: All that is vpon earth, shal perishe. 18 But with the wyll I make a couenaunt, and thou shalt go in to the Arcke with thy sonnes, with thy wyfe, and with thy sonnes wyues. 19 And of all creatures what so euer flesh it be, thou shalt bringe into the Arcke, euen a payre: the male and the female, that they maye lyue wt the: 20 Of foules after their kynde, of beastes after their kynde, and of all maner wormes of the earth after their kinde. Of euery one of these shal there a payre go in vnto the, that they maye lyue. 21 And thou shalt take vnto the all maner of meate that maye be eaten, and shalt laye it vp in stoare by the, that it maye be meate for the and them. 22 And Noe dyd acordinge to all that God commaunded him.
Bible verses about "nimrod" | Coverdale
8 Thus also begat Nemrod, which beganne to be mightie in the earth, 9 and was a mightie hunter in the sight of the LORDE. Therof commeth the prouerbe: This is a mightie hunter before the LORDE like as Nemrod. 10 And the origenall of his kyngdome was Babel, Erech, Acad & Chalne in ye londe of Synear. 11 Out of that lode came Assur, and buylded Niniue, and ye stretes of ye cite, and Calah, 12 and Ressen betwene Ninyne & Calah: This is a greate cite.
1 The wordes yt the LORDE spake vnto the prophet Ieremy, concernynge Babilon, & the londe of the Caldees: 2 Preach amonge the Gentiles, let youre voyce be herde, make a toke: crie out, kepe no sylence, but saye: Babilon shal be wonne, Bel shalhe cofounded, and Merodach shalbe ouer come. Yee their goddes shal be brought to shame, and their ymages shall stonde in feare. 3 For out of the north there shal come a people agaynst her, which shal make hir londe so waist, that no body shal dwell therin: nether man ner beast, for they shall fle and departe from thence. 4 In those dayes & at that tyme (saieth the LORDE) the childre of Israel shall come, they & the children of Iuda, wepinge & makinge haist, & shal seke the LORDE their God. 5 They shall axe the waye to Sion, thyther shall they turne their faces, & come, and hange vpon the, in a couenaunt that neuer shal be broken. 6 My people hath bene a lost flocke, my shepherdes haue disceaued them, & haue made them go astraye vpon the hilles. They haue gone from the mountayne to the litle hill, & forgotten their folde. 7 All they yt came vpon them, haue deuoured the: & their enemies sayde: We haue made no faute agaynst them, for they haue displeased the LORDE, yee euen the LORDE which is the bewtie of their rightuousnes, & yt defended their fathers. 8 Yet shal ye fle from Babilon, & departe out of ye londe of the Caldees, and ye shall be as the rammes that go before the flocke. 9 For lo, I will wake vp an hoost of people from ye northren londe, & bringe them vpon Babilon: these shal laye sege to it, & wynne it: Their arowes shal not mysse, like as a connynge archer shuteth not wronge. 10 And the Caldees shalbe spoyled, & all they that spoyle them, shalbe satisfied, saieth the LORDE: 11 because ye were so chearfull & glad, to treade downe myne heretage, & fulfilled youre pleasures, as the calues in the grasse: and triumphed ouer them like the bulles, when ye had gotten the victory. 12 Youre mothers shalbe sore confounded, and they that bare you, shal come to shame. She shall be the leest set by amonge the nacions, vyode, waist, & dried vp. 13 No man shal be able to dwell there, for the feare of ye LORDE, but she shal be whole desolate. All they that go by Babilon, shall stonde still, & be abashed, & shal wondre at all hir plages. 14 Go forth in yor araye agaynst Babilon rounde aboute, all ye that can hadle bowes: shute as her, spare no arowes, for she hath synned agaynst the LORDE. 15 Crie out: vpon her, vpon her, agaynst her roude aboute: she shal yelde herselfe, her foundacios shal fall, & hir walles shall come downe, for it shalbe the vengeaunce of the LORDE. Yee vegeaunce shalbe taken of her, & as she hath done, so shal she be dealt withall. 16 They shal rote out the sower from Babilon, & him yt handleth the sickle in haruest. For feare of the swearde of the enemie, euery man shall get him to his owne people, & euery man shal fle to his owne londe. 17 Israel is a scatred flocke, the Lyons haue dispersed them. First the kinge of the Assirians deuoured them, last of all this Nabuchodonosor kynge of Babilon hath brussed all their bones. 18 Therfore thus saieth the LORDE of hoostes the God of Israel: Beholde, I will viset the kinge of Babilon & his kingdome, as I haue visited the kinge of the Assirians: 19 and will bringe Israel agayne to his pleasaunt pasture, that he maye fede vpon Charmel & Basan, and be satisfied vpon the mount of Ephraim & Galaad. 20 In those dayes and at the same tyme (saieth the LORDE) yf the offence of Israel be sought for, there shal none be founde: Yf men enquere for the synne of Iuda, there shal be none: for I wil be mercifull vnto them, whom I suffre to remayne ouer. 21 Go downe (o thou avenger) in to the enemies londe, & viset them that dwell therin: downe with them, and smyte them vpon the backes, saieth the LORDE: do acordinge to all, that I haue commaunded the. 22 There is gone aboute the londe a crie of a slaughter & greate murthur, namely on this maner: 23 How happeneth it, that the hammer of the whole worlde is thus broken & brussed in sonder? How chaunceth it, that Babilon is become a wildernes amonge the Heithen on this maner? 24 I myself haue layed wayte for the, & thou art taken: vnawarres art thou trapped & snared: for why, thou hast prouoked ye LORDE vnto anger: 25 The LORDE hath opened his house of ordinaunce, & brought forth the weapens of his wrath. For the thinge that is done in the londe of the Caldees, it is the LORDE of hoostes worke. 26 These thinges shal come vpon her at the last, they shal breake in to hir preuy chabres, they shall leaue her as bare as stones, that be layed together vpon heapes. They shall so destroye her, yt nothinge shal be left. 27 They shal slaye all hir mightie souldyers, and put them to death. Wo be vnto the, for the daye & tyme of their visitacion is at honde. 28 Me thinke I heare already a crie, of them that be fled & escaped out of the londe of Babilon, which shewe in Sion the vengeaunce of the LORDE oure God, the vengeaunce of his temple: Yee a voyce of them, that crie agaynst Babilon: 29 Call vp all the archers agaynst Babilon, pytch youre tentes rounde aboute her, that none escape. Recompence her, as she hath deserued: and acordinge as she hath done, so deale with her agayne: for she hath set vp her self agaynst the LORDE, agaynst ye holy one of Israel. 30 Therfore shal hir yonge men fall downe in the stretes, & all hir men of warre shal be roted out in yt daye, saieth the LORDE. 31 Beholde, I speake vnto the (o thou proude) saieth the LORDE God of hoostes: for thy daye shal come, eue the tyme of yi visitacio. 32 And the proude shal stomble & fall, & no man shal helpe him vp. I wil burne vp his cities with fyre, & it shal consume all that is rounde aboute him. 33 Thus saieth the LORDE of hoostes: The children of Israel & Iuda suffre violence together. All they that haue them in captiuyte, kepe them fast, & wil not let them go: 34 but their aveger & redemer is mightie, whose name is the LORDE of hoostes: he shal manteyne their cause, he shal make the londe shake, & iudge them that dwell therin, one with another. 35 The swearde shall come vpon the Caldees (saieth the LORDE) vpon them that dwell in Babilon, vpon their prynces, & vpo their wyse me: 36 The swearde vpon their soythsayers, (as for those, they shall become fooles.) The swearde vpo their worthies, so that they shal stonde in feare: 37 The swearde vpon their horsmen and charettes, & vpon all the comon people that dwell vnder the: so that they all shal become like women: The swearde vpon their treasure, so that it shal be stolen awaye: 38 The swearde vpon their waters, so that they shalbe dried vp: For the londe worshippeth ymages, & delyteth in straunge wondrefull thinges. 39 Therfore shal wilde beestes, Apes & Estriches dwell therin: for there shal neuer man dwell there, nether shal eny man haue his habitacion there fore euermore. 40 Like as God destroyed Sodom & Gomorre, with the cities that laye there aboute, saieth the LORDE: So shal noman dwell there also, nether shal eny ma haue there his habitacion. 41 Beholde, there shal come a people from the north, with a greate bonde of men, & many kinges shal stonde vp from the endes of the earth: 42 They beare bowes & buclers, cruell are they & vnmercifull. Their voyce roareth like the raginge see, they ryde vpon horses, & come weapened to fight agaynst the: O Babilon. 43 As soone as the kinge of Babilon heareth tell of them, his hondes shal waxe feable: Sorowe and heuynes shall come vpon him, as a woman trauelinge with childe. 44 Beholde, like as the Lyon commeth vp from the pleasaunt medowes of Iordane vnto the grene pastures of Ethan, so wil I dryue the forth, and make them runne agaynst her. But whom shal I chose out, & ordene to soch thinge? For who is like me, or who wil stryue with me? or what shepherde maye stonde agaynst me? 45 Therfore heare the councel that the LORDE hath geuen vpon Babilon, and the deuyce that he hath taken vpon the londe of the Caldees. The leest amoge the people shal teare them in peces, & loke what pleasaunt thinge they haue: they shal laye it waist. 46 The noyse at ye wynnynge of Babilon shal moue the earth, & the crie shalbe herde amonge the Getiles.
6 these shal subdue the londe of Assur wt the swerde, and the londe of Nymrod with their naked weapens. Thus shal he delyuer vs from the Assiria, when he commeth within oure lande, and setteth his fote within oure borders.
1 And after that I sawe another angel come downe fro heaue, hauinge greate power, and ye earth was lyghtned with his bryghtnes. 2 And he cryed mightely with a stronge voyce, sayenge: She is fallen, she is fallen, euen greate Babilon, and is become the habitacion of deuels, and ye holde of all fowle spretes, and a cage of all vncleane and hatefull byrdes: 3 for all nacios haue dronken of the wyne of the wrath of her whordome. And the kynges of the earth haue committed fornicacion with her, and her marchauntes are wexed ryche of the abundaunce of her pleasures. 4 And I herde another voyce from heauen saye: come awaye from her my people, that ye be not partakers of her synnes, lest ye receaue of her plages. 5 For her synnes are gone vp to heauen, and the LORDE hath remembred her wyckednes. 6 Rewarde her euen as she rewarded you, and geue her dubble acordinge to her workes. And poure in dubble to her in the same cuppe, which she fylled vnto you. 7 And as moche as she gloryfied her selfe and lyued wantanly, so moch poure ye in for her of punysshmet, and sorowe, for she sayeth in her herte: I syt beinge a quene, and am no wyddowe, and shall se no sorowe. 8 Therfore shal her plages come at one daye, death, and sorowe, and honger, and she shalbe bret with fyre: for stronge is the LORDE God which shal iudge her. 9 And the kynges of the earth shal bewepe her and wayle ouer her, which haue committed fornicacion and lyued wantanly with her, when they shal se the smoke of her burnynge, 10 and shal stonde a farre of for feare of her punysshment, sayenge: Alas, Alas, that greate cite Babylon, that mighty cite: For at one houre is thy iudgment come. 11 And the marchauntes off the earth shall wepe and wayle in them selues, because no man will bye their ware eny more, 12 the ware of golde, and syluer, and of precious stones, off pearle, & sylke, and purple, and skarlet, & all Thynen wod, and all manner vessels of yuery, and all manner vessels of most precious wod, and of brasse, and of yron, 13 & synomom and odours, and oyntmentes, and frankynsence, and wyne, and oyle, and fyne floure, and wheate, and catell, and shepe, and horses, and charrettes, and bodies and soules of men. 14 And the apples that thy soule lusted after, are departed from the. And all thinges which were deyntie, and had in pryce, are departed from the, and thou shalt fynde them no more. 15 The marchauntes of these thinges which were wexed ryche by her, shall stonde afarre of for feare of the punysshment of her, wepynge and waylinge, 16 and sayenge: alas alas, that greate cite, that was clothed in sylke, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with golde, and precious stone, and pearles: 17 for at one houre so greate ryches is come to naught. And euery shippe gouerner, and all they that occupie shippes, and shippmen which worke in the see, stode a farre of, 18 and cryed, when they sawe the smoke of her burnynge, and sayde: what cite is like vnto this greate cite? 19 And they cast dust on their heades, and cryed wepynge, and waylinge, and sayde: Alas, Alas the greate cite, wherin were made ryche all that had shippes in the see, by the reason of her wares: for at one houre is she made desolate. 20 Reioyce ouer her thou heaue, and ye holy Apostles, and prophetes: for God hath geuen youre iudgmet on her. 21 And a mighty angell toke vp a greate stone lyke a mylstone, and cast it in to the see, sayenge: with suche violece shal that greate cite Babylon be cast, and shalbe founde no more. 22 And the voyce of harpers, and musicions, and of pypers, and trompetters, shalbe herde no more in the: and no craftes man (of what soeuer craft he be) shalbe founde eny more in the: and the sounde of a myll shalbe herde no more in the: 23 and the voyce of the brydegrome and of the bryde, shalbe herde no more in the for thy marchauntes were prynces of the earth. And with thyne inchautment were deceaued all nacions: 24 and in her was founde the bloude of the prophetes, and of the sayntes, and of all that were slayne vpo the earth.
1 And there cam one of the seue angels, which had the seuen vialles, and talked with me, sayenge vnto me: Come, I wil shewe the the iugdment of the greate whore, that sytteth vpon many waters, 2 with whom the kynges of the earth haue commytted whordome, and the inhabiters of the earth are dronken with the wyne of her fornicacion. 3 And he caryed me awaye into the wildernes in ye sprete. And I sawe a woman syt vpon a rose colored beest, full of names of blasphemie, which had seue heades & ten hornes. 4 And ye woman was arayed in purple and rose color, and decked with golde, precious stone, and pearles, and had a cupp of golde in her honde, full of abhominacions, and fylthines of her wordome. 5 And in her forhed was a name wrytte, a mistery; greate Babilon the mother of whordome, and abominacios of the earth. 6 And I sawe the wyfe dronke with the bloude of sayntes, and with the bloud of the witnesses of Iesu. And when I sawe her, I wondred with greate mervayle. 7 And the angell sayde vnto me: wherfore meruayllest thou? I wyl shewe the the mistery of the woman, and of the beest that beerith her, which hath seuen heades, and ten hornes. 8 The beest that thou seest, was, and is not, and shall ascende out of the bottomlesse pytt, and shal go in to perdicion, and they that dwell on the earth shal wondre (whose names are not wrytten in the boke of life from the begynnynge of the worlde) when they beholde the beest that was, and is not. 9 And here is a mynde, that hath wissdome. The seuen heades are seuen mountanes, on which the woman sytteth: 10 they are also seuen kynges. Fyue are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come. When he commeth, he muste continue a space. 11 And the beest that was, and is not, is eue the eyght, and is of the seuen, and shal go in to destruccion. 12 And ye ten hornes which thou sawest, are ten kynges, which haue not yet receaued the kyngdome, but shal receaue power as kynges at one houre with ye beest. 13 These haue one mynde, and shal geue their power and stregth vnto ye beeste. 14 These shal fyght with the lambe, and the labe shal ouercome them: For he is LORDE of all lordes, and kinge of all kinges: and they that are on his syde, are called, and chosen and faithfull. 15 And he saide vnto me: The waters which thou sawest, where ye whore sytteth, are people, and folke, and nacions, and tonges. 16 And the ten hornes, which thou sawest vpon the beest, are they that shal hate the whore, and shal make her desolate, and naked, and shall eate hir flesshe, and burne her with fyre. 17 For God hath put in their hertes, to fulfill his wyll, and to do with one consent, for to geue hir kyngdome vnto the beest, vntill the wordes of God be fulfylled. 18 And the woma which thou sawest, is that greate cite, which raigneth ouer the kynges of the earth.
8 But the fearefull and vnbeleuynge, and the abhominable, and murthurers, and whormongers, and sorcerers, and ydolaters, & all lyars, shal haue their parte in the lake, that burneth with fyre and brymstone, which is the seconde death.
1 This is the generacion of the childre of Noe, Sem, Ham, and Iaphet, & they begat children after the floude. 2 The children of Iaphet are these: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Iauan, Tubal, Mesech and Thyras. 3 The childre of Gomer are these: Ascenas, Riphat and Togarma. 4 The children of Iauan are these: Elisa, Tharsis, Cithim and Dodanim: 5 Of these are deuided the Iles of ye Heithen in their countrees, euery one after his speach, kynred and people. 6 The childre of Ham are these: Thus, Misraim, Phut and Canaan. 7 The children of Chus are these: Seba, Heuila Sabtha, Reyma and Sabthecha. The children of Reyma are these: Sheba and Deda. 8 Thus also begat Nemrod, which beganne to be mightie in the earth, 9 and was a mightie hunter in the sight of the LORDE. Therof commeth the prouerbe: This is a mightie hunter before the LORDE like as Nemrod. 10 And the origenall of his kyngdome was Babel, Erech, Acad & Chalne in ye londe of Synear. 11 Out of that lode came Assur, and buylded Niniue, and ye stretes of ye cite, and Calah, 12 and Ressen betwene Ninyne & Calah: This is a greate cite. 13 Mizraim begat Ludim, Enamim, Leabim, Naphtuhim, 14 Pathrusim & Casluhim, from whence came the Philistynes and Capthorims. 15 Canaa also begat Zidon his eldest sonne, & Heth, 16 Iebusi, Emori, Girgosi, 17 Hiui, Arki, Sini, 18 Aruadi, Zemari & Hamati: fro whence ye kynreds of ye Cananites are dispersed abrode. 19 And ye Coastes of ye Cananites were fro Sido forth thorow Gerar vnto Gasa, tyll thou comest vnto Sodoma, Gomorra, Adama, Zeboim, & vnto Lasa. 20 These are the children of Ham in their kynreds, tunges, londes & people. 21 And Sem which is ye father of all the children of Eber, & the elder brother of Iaphet, begat childre also. 22 And these are his children: Ela, Assur, Arphachad, Lud & Aram. 23 The childre of Aram are these: Vz, Hul, Gether & Mas. 24 And Arphachsad begat Sala, and Sala begat Eber. 25 Eber begat two sonnes: the name of the one was Peleg, because that in his tyme the worlde was deuyded, and his brothers name was Iaketan, 26 And Iaketan begat Almodad, Saleph, Hazarmaphet, Iarah, 27 Hadoram, Usal, Dikela, 28 Obal, Abimael, Seba, 29 Ophir, Heuila & Iobab: All these are ye childre of Iaketan. 30 And their dwellynge was from Mesa, tyll thou come vnto Sephar a mountayne of ye east. 31 These are ye children of Sem in their generacions, tunges, londes and people. 32 This is now ye generacion of ye children of Noe in their kynredes & people. Of these were ye people vpon earth spred a brode after ye floude.
8 Thus also begat Nemrod, which beganne to be mightie in the earth,
1 Morouer all the worlde had one tonge & language. 2 Now as they wente towarde the East, they founde a playne in ye londe of Synear, & there they dwelt, 3 & saide one to another: Come on, let vs make bryck & burne it. And they toke bryck for stone, & slyme for morter, 4 And sayde: Come, let vs buylde a cite & a tower, whose toppe maye reach vnto heaue, yt we maye make vs a name, afore we be scatred abrode in all londes. 5 Then came ye LORDE downe, to se ye cite & tower, yt ye childre of me had buylded. 6 And ye LORDE saide: Beholde, the people is one, & haue one maner of language amoge the all, & this haue they begonne to do, & wil not leaue of from all yt they haue purposed to do. 7 Come on, let vs go downe, & cofounde their tonge eue there, yt one vnderstonde not what another saieth. 8 Thus ye LORDE scatred the fro thece in all lodes, so yt they left of to buylde the cite. 9 Therfore is it called Babell, because the LORDE cofounded there the language of all the worlde, and from thece scatred them abrode in to all londes. 10 These are ye generacions of Sem. Sem was an hundreth yeare olde, and begat Arphachsad two yeare after the floude, 11 and lyued therafter fyue hudreth yeare, and begat sonnes and doughters. 12 Arphachsad was fiue & thirtie yeare olde, and begat Salah, 13 and lyued therafter foure hundreth and thre yeare, and begat sonnes & doughters. 14 Salah was thirtie yeare olde, and begat Eber, 15 & lyued therafter foure hudreth & thre yeare, & begat sonnes and doughters. 16 Eber was foure and thirtie yeare olde, & begat Peleg, 17 and lyued therafter foure hundreth and thirtie yeare, and begat sonnes & doughters. 18 Peleg was thirtie yeare olde, and begat Regu, 19 and lyued therafter two hudreth and nyene yeare, and begat sonnes & doughters. 20 Regu was two and thirtie yeare olde, and begat Serug, 21 and lyued therafter two hundreth and seuen yeare, and begat sonnes and doughters. 22 Serug was thirtie yeare olde, and begat Nahor, 23 and lyued therafter two hundreth yeare, and begat sonnes & doughters. 24 Nahor was nyene and twentye yeare olde, and begat Terah, 25 and lyued herafter an hundreth and nyentene yeare, and begat sonnes and doughters. 26 Terah was seuentie yeare olde, and begat Abram, Nahor and Haran. 27 These are the generations of Terah: Terah begat Abram, Nahor and Haran. And Haran begat Lot, 28 but Hara dyed before Terah his father in ye londe where he was borne, at Vr in Chaldea. 29 Then Abram and Nahor toke them wyues. Abrams wife was called Sarai, & Nahors wyfe Milca the doughter of Haran, which was father of Milca and Iisca. 30 But Sarai was baren, and had no childe. 31 Then toke Terah Abra his sonne, & Lot his sonne Harans sonne, & Sarai his doughter in lawe, his sonne Abrams wife, & caried them wt him from Vr in Chaldea, to go in to the lande of Canaan. And they came to Haran, & dwelt there. 32 And Terah was two hundreth & fyue yeare olde, and dyed in Haran.
8 Thus also begat Nemrod, which beganne to be mightie in the earth, 9 and was a mightie hunter in the sight of the LORDE. Therof commeth the prouerbe: This is a mightie hunter before the LORDE like as Nemrod. 10 And the origenall of his kyngdome was Babel, Erech, Acad & Chalne in ye londe of Synear.
10 Chus, begat Nemrod, yt beganne to be mighty vpon earthe.
9 and was a mightie hunter in the sight of the LORDE. Therof commeth the prouerbe: This is a mightie hunter before the LORDE like as Nemrod.
