User-database: Miles Coverdale version (1535) of the Bible

Written by Michael Hanel on September 10th, 2007

Thanks to Bob Venem who has put together a few other great modules on the early English Bible we now have another version at our fingertips.

While I personally haven’t much experience with Miles Coverdale’s version, I was able to learn from Wikipedia that Coverdale was not proficient with either Hebrew or Greek (hardly the first!), and so made his translation from “‘five soundry interpreters’ in Latin, Enlgish and ‘Douche’ (German).” So while it may not be great for exegesis, it will be useful to those who are interested in early versions of the Bible in English.
