    John 7
    •   Aftir these thingis Jhesus walkide in to Galilee, for he wolde not walke in to Judee, for the Jewis souyten to sle hym.
    •   And ther was neiy a feeste dai of the Jewis, Senofegia.
    •   And hise britheren seiden to hym, Passe fro hennus, and go in to Judee, that also thi disciplis seen thi werkis that thou doist;
    •   for no man doith ony thing in hiddlis, and hym silf sekith to be opyn. If thou doist these thingis, schewe thi silf to the world.
    •   For nether hise britheren bileueden in hym.
    •   Therfor Jhesus seith to hem, My tyme cam not yit, but youre tyme is euermore redi.
    •   The world may not hate you, sothely it hatith me; for Y bere witnessyng therof, that the werkis of it ben yuele.
    •   Go ye vp to this feeste dai, but Y schal not go vp to this feeste dai, for my tyme is not yit fulfillid.
    •   Whanne he hadde seid these thingis, he dwelte in Galilee.
    • 10   And aftir that hise britheren weren gon vp, thanne he yede vp to the feeste dai, not opynli, but as in priuyte.
    • 11   Therfor the Jewis souyten hym in the feeste dai, and seiden, Where is he?
    • 12   And myche grutchyng was of hym among the puple. For summe seiden, That he is good; and othere seiden, Nai, but he disceyueth the puple;
    • 13   netheles no man spak opynli of hym, for drede of the Jewis.
    • 14   But whanne the myddil feeste dai cam, Jhesus wente vp in to the temple, and tauyte.
    • 15   And the Jewis wondriden, and seiden, Hou can this man lettris, sithen he hath not lerned?
    • 16   Jhesus answerde to hem, and seide, My doctryne is not myn, but his that sente me.
    • 17   If ony man wole do his wille, he schal knowe of the techyng, whethir it be of God, or Y speke of my silf.
    • 18   He that spekith of hym silf, sekith his owne glorie; but he that sekith the glorie of hym that sente hym, is sothefast, and vnriytwisnesse is not in hym.
    • 19   Whether Moises yaf not to you a lawe, and noon of you doith the lawe?
    • 20   What seken ye to sle me? And the puple answerde, and seide, Thou hast a deuel; who sekith to sle thee?
    • 21   Jhesus answerde, and seide to hem, Y haue don o werk, and alle ye wondren.
    • 22   Therfor Moises yaf to you circumcisioun; not for it is of Moyses, but of the fadris; and in the sabat ye circumciden a man.
    • 23   If a man take circumcicioun in the sabat, that the lawe of Moises be not brokun, han ye indignacioun to me, for Y made al a man hool in the sabat?
    • 24   Nile ye deme aftir the face, but deme ye a riytful doom.
    • 25   Therfor summe of Jerusalem seiden, Whethir this is not he, whom the Jewis seken to sle?
    • 26   and lo! he spekith opynli, and thei seien no thing to hym. Whether the princes knewen verili, that this is Crist?
    • 27   But we knowun this man, of whennus he is; but whanne Crist schal come, no man woot of whennus he is.
    • 28   Therfor Jhesus criede in the temple `techynge, and seide, Ye knowen me, and `ye knowen of whennus Y am; and Y cam not of my silf, but he is trewe that sente me, whom ye knowen not.
    • 29   Y knowe hym, and if Y seie that Y knowe hym not, Y schal be lijk to you, a liere; but Y knowe hym, for of hym Y am, and he sente me.
    • 30   Therfor thei souyten to take hym, and no man sette on hym hoondis, for his our cam not yit.
    • 31   And many of the puple bileueden in hym, and seiden, Whanne Crist schal come, whether he schal do mo tokenes, than tho that this doith?
    • 32   Farisees herden the puple musinge of hym these thingis; and the princis and Farisees senten mynystris, to take hym.
    • 33   Therfor Jhesus seide to hem, Yit a litil tyme Y am with you, and Y go to the fadir, that sente me.
    • 34   Ye schulen seke me, and ye schulen not fynde; and where Y am, ye may not come.
    • 35   Therfor the Jewis seiden to hem silf, Whidur schal this gon, for we schulen not fynde hym? whether he wole go in to the scateryng of hethene men, and wole teche the hethene?
    • 36   What is this word, which he seide, Ye schulen seke me, and ye schulen not fynde; and where Y am, ye moun not come?
    • 37   But in the laste dai of the greet feeste, Jhesus stood, and criede, and seide, If ony man thirstith, come he to me, and drynke.
    • 38   He that bileueth in me, as the scripture seith, Floodis of quyk watir schulen flowe fro his wombe.
    • 39   But he seide this thing of the Spirit, whom men that bileueden in hym schulden take; for the Spirit was not yit youun, for Jhesus was not yit glorified.
    • 40   Therfor of that cumpanye, whanne thei hadden herd these wordis of hym, thei seiden, This is verili a prophete.
    • 41   Othere seiden, This is Crist. `But summe seiden, Whether Crist cometh fro Galilee?
    • 42   Whether the scripture seith not, that of the seed of Dauid, and of the castel of Bethleem, where Dauid was, Crist cometh?
    • 43   Therfor discencioun was maad among the puple for hym.
    • 44   For summe of hem wolden haue take hym, but no man sette hondis on hym.
    • 45   Therfor the mynystris camen to bischopis and Farisees, and thei seiden to hem, Whi brouyten ye not hym?
    • 46   The mynystris answeriden, Neuere man spak so, as this man spekith.
    • 47   Therfor the Farisees answeriden to hem, Whether ye ben disseyued also?
    • 48   whether ony of the pryncis or of the Farisees bileueden in hym?
    • 49   But this puple, that knowith not the lawe, ben cursid.
    • 50   Nychodeme seith to hem, he that cam to hym bi nyyt, that was oon of hem, Whethir oure lawe demith a man,
    • 51   but it haue first herde of hym, and knowe what he doith?
    • 52   Thei answeriden, and seiden to hym, Whether thou art a man of Galilee also? Seke thou scripturis, and se thou, that a prophete risith not of Galilee.
    • 53   And thei turneden ayen, ech in to his hous.

  • John Wycliffe Bible (c.1395) (wycliffe - 2.4.1)


    English (enm)

    The Holy Bible, containing the Old and New Testaments, with the Apocryphal books, in the earliest English versions made from the Latin Vulgate by John Wycliffe and his followers, c.1395

    Source text

    John Wycliffe organized the first complete translation of the Bible into Middle English in the 1380s.

    The translation from the Vulgate was a collaborative effort, and it is not clear which portions are actually Wycliffe's work.

    Church authorities officially condemned the translators of the Bible into vernacular languages and called these heretics Lollards.

    Despite their prohibition, revised versions of Wycliffite Bibles remained in use for about 100 years.

    Wikisource attributes its source as the Wesley Center Online.

    That in turn was derived from the Fedosov transcription on the Slavic Bibles site

    The source text makes no use of archaic letters that were part of Middle English orthography.
    The Latin letter Yogh [ȝ] was evidently replaced by the letter [y] in the Fedosov transcription.

    The text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License.

    Verse numbers were not used in either the earlier or later version of the Wycliffe Bible in the fourteenth century. Each chapter consisted of one unbroken block of text. There were not even any paragraphs. Hence whatever verse numbers we now have in modern editions have been added retrospectively by comparison with other English Bibles and the Latin Vulgate.

    Two books found in the Vulgate, II Esdras and Psalm 151, were never part of the Wycliffe Bible.

    Module build notes:
    1. The Prayer of Manasseh has been separated from 2 Chronicles in order to avoid a critical versification issue.
    cf. In Wikisource it was assigned as 2 Paralipomenon chapter 37.
    2. The Letter of Jeremiah has been joined to Baruch as chapter 6 thereof.
    3. The book order of Wycliffe's Bible differs from that of the Vulg versification used in this module.
    4. There are now 313 notes in the Wikisource document.
    5. The Wikisource text substantially matches that of the nine books in module version 1.0
    6. Each of these five verses not in the Vulg versification was appended to the previous verse: Deut.27.27 Esth.5.15 Ps.38.15 Ps.147.10 Luke.10.43
    7. There are also several verses without any text. Use Sword utility emptyvss to list these.

Basic Hash Usage Explained

At getBible, we've established a robust system to keep our API synchronized with the Crosswire project's modules. Let me explain how this integration works in simple terms.

We source our Bible text directly from the Crosswire modules. To monitor any updates, we generate "hash values" for each chapter, book, and translation. These hash values serve as unique identifiers that change only when the underlying content changes, thereby ensuring a tight integration between getBible and the Crosswire modules.

Every month, an automated process runs for approximately three hours. During this window, we fetch the latest Bible text from the Crosswire modules. Subsequently, we compare the new hash values and the text with the previous ones. Any detected changes trigger updates to both our official getBible hash repository and the Bible API for all affected translations. This system has been operating seamlessly for several years.

Once the updates are complete, any application utilizing our Bible API should monitor the hash values at the chapter, book, or translation level. Spotting a change in these values indicates that they should update their respective systems.

Hash values can change due to various reasons, including textual corrections like adding omitted verses, rectifying spelling errors, or addressing any discrepancies flagged by the publishers maintaining the modules at Crosswire.

The Crosswire initiative, also known as the SWORD Project, is the "source of truth" for getBible. Any modifications in the Crosswire modules get reflected in our API within days, ensuring our users access the most precise and current Bible text. We pledge to uphold this standard as long as getBible exists and our build scripts remain operational.

We're united in our mission to preserve the integrity and authenticity of the Bible text. If you have questions or require additional information, please use our support system. We're here to assist and will respond promptly.

Thank you for your understanding and for being an integral part of the getBible community.
