DEDICATION TO KING JAMES


"TO THE MOST HIGH AND MIGHTY PRINCE, JAMES, BY THE


GRACE OF GOD, KING OF GREAT BRITAIN, FRANCE, AND IRELAND,


DEFENDER OF THE FAITH, ETC."


The Translators of the Bible wish Grace, Mercy, and Peace, through


JESUS CHRIST our Lord.


Great and manifold were the blessings, most dread Sovereign, which


Almighty God, the Father of all mercies, bestowed upon us the people of


England, when first he sent Your Majesty's Royal Person to rule and reign


over us. For whereas it was the expectation of many who wished not well


unto our Sion, that, upon the setting of that bright Occidental Star, Queen


Elizabeth, of most happy memory, some thick and palpable clouds of darkness would so have overshadowed this land, that men should have been in doubt


which way they were to walk, and that it should hardly be known who was to


direct the unsettled State; the appearance of Your Majesty, as of the Sun


in his strength, instantly dispelled those supposed and surmised mists, and


gave unto all that were well affected exceeding cause of comfort;


especially when we beheld the Government established in Your Highness and


Your hopeful Seed, by an undoubted Title; and this also accompanied with


peace and tranquility at home and abroad.


But among all our joys, there was no one that more filled our hearts


than the blessed continuance of the preaching of God's sacred Word among


us, which is that inestimable treasure which excelleth all the riches of


earth; because the fruit thereof extendeth itself, not only to the time


spent in this transitory world, but directeth and disposeth men unto that


eternal happiness which is above in heaven.


Then not to suffer this to fall to the ground, but rather to take it


up, and to continue it in that state wherein the famous Predecessor of Your


Highness did leave it; nay, to go forward with the confidence and


resolution of a man, in maintaining the truth of Christ, and propagating it


far and near, is that which hath so bound and firmly knit the hearts of all


PREFACE xa0-xa02 Your Majesty's loyal and religious people unto You, that Your very name is


precious among them: their eye doth behold You with comfort, and they bless


You in their hearts, as that sanctified Person, who, under God, is the


immediate author of their true happiness. And this their contentment doth


not diminish or decay, but every day increaseth and taketh strength, when


they observe that the zeal of Your Majesty toward the house of God doth not


slack or go backward, but is more and more kindled, manifesting itself


abroad in the farthest parts of Christendom, by writing in defence of the


truth, (which hath given such a blow unto that Man of Sin as will not be


healed,) and every day at home, by religious and learned discourse, by


frequenting the house of God, by hearing the Word preached, by cherishing


the teachers thereof, by caring for the Church, as a most tender .


and loving nursing father


There are infinite arguments of this right Christian and religious


affection in Your Majesty; but none is more forcible to declare it to


others than the vehement and perpetuated desire of accomplishing and


publishing of this work, which now, with all humility, we present unto Your


Majesty. For when Your Highness had once, out of deep judgment, xa0


apprehended how convenient it was, that, out of the Original sacred


PREFACE xa0-xa03 Tongues, together with comparing of the labours, both in our own and other


foreign languages, of many worthy men who went before us, there should be


one more exact translation of the Holy Scriptures into the English Tongue;


Your Majesty did never desist to urge and to excite those to whom it was


commended, that the Work might be hastened, and that the business might be


expedited in so decent a manner, as a matter of such importance might justly require.


And now at last, by the mercy of God, and the continuance of our


labours, it being brought unto such a conclusion, as that we have great


hopes that the Church of England shall reap good fruit thereby, we hold it


our duty to offer it to Your Majesty, not only as to our King and


Sovereign, but as to the principal mover and author of the Work; humbly


craving of your most Sacred Majesty, that, since things of this quality


have ever been subject to the censures of ill-meaning and discontented


persons, it may receive approbation and patronage from so learned and


judicious a Prince as Your Highness is; whose allowance and acceptance of


our labours shall more honour and encourage us than all the calumniations


and hard interpretations of other men shall dismay us. So that if, on the


one side, we shall be traduced by Popish persons at home or abroad, who


therefore will malign us, because we are poor instruments to make God's


PREFACE xa0-xa04 hold truth to be yet more and more known unto the people, whom they desire


still to keep in ignorance and darkness; or if, on the other side, we shall


be maligned by self-conceited brethren, who run their own ways, and give


liking unto nothing but what is framed by themselves, and hammered on their


anvil, we may rest secure, supported within by the


truth and innocency of a good conscience, having walked the ways of


simplicity and integrity as before the Lord, and sustained without by the


powerful protection of Your Majesty's grace and favour, which will ever


give countenance to honest and Christian endeavors against bitter censures


and uncharitable imputations.


The Lord of heaven and earth bless Your Majesty with many and happy


days; that, as his heavenly hand hath enriched Your Highness with many


singular and extraordinary graces, so You may be the wonder of the world in


this latter age for happiness and true felicity, to the honour of that


great God, and the good of his Church, through Jesus Christ our Lord and


only Saviour.
