Reat and manifold were the blefiingsfmoft dread Soueraigne^ which Almighty G o o, the Father of all Mercies, beftowed vpon vs the people of England, vzhen firft he lent your Maiefties Royall perfon to rule and raigne ouer vs. For whereas it was the expectation of many, who wilhed not well vnto our Sion, tliat vpon the letting of that bright Occidentall Starred Queene Elizabeth ofmoft happy memory, fome thicke and palpable cloudes of darkenefle would fo haue ouerfhadowed tins land, that men fhould haue bene in doubt which way they were to Walke, and that it fhould h ardly be knowen, who was to direct the vnfetled State: the appearance ofyour Maies tie, as ofthe Sunne-j in his ftrength, infiantlydilpelled thofe luppofed and furmifed mifts, and gaue vnto all that were well affeCled,cxceeding caufe ofcomfort,- elpecially when we be­ held thc gouernment eftabliflied in your H i g h n e s s e, and your hope­ full Seed, by an vndoubted Title, and this alfo accompanied with Peace and tranquillitie,at home and abroad. But amongft all our loyes, there was no one that more filled our hearts, then the blelfed continuance of the Preaching of Gods facred word amongft vs,wliich is that ineftimable treafure,which cxcelleth all the riches ofthe earth,becaule the fruit thereofextendeth it fellc,not onely to the time fpentin this tranfitory world, but direCteth and dilpoleth men vnto that Eteniall happinelTe which is aboue in Heauen. Then,no t to fuffer this to fall to the ground, but rather to take it vp, and to continue it in that ftate,wherein the famous predeceflbur ofyour H i g hNESSE didleaueit; Nay, togoe forward with the confidence and refo-i A ) lutioni

lution ofa man in maintaining the trueth ofC h r 1 s t, and propagating it| farre and neere, is that which hath fo bound and firmely knit the hearts of all your Ma 1 e s t 1 e s loyal! and Religious people vnto you, tliat your very Name is precious among them, their eye doeth behoid you with coinfort, and theyblelleyou in their hearts, as that fandified perfon, who vnder G o D,is the immediate authour of their true happinefle. And this their contentment doeth not diminifh or decay, but euery day increafeth and talteth ftrength, when they obferue that thc zeale ofyour Maieftie to­ wards the houfe ofG o d ,doth not flacke or goe backward,but is more and more kindled,manifefting it felfe abroad in the fiirtheft parts o^Chriflendcme, bywriting in defence of theTrueth,(whichhath giuen fuch ablowvnto that man ofSinne, as will not be healed) and euery day at home,by Religi­ ous and learned difcourfe,by frequenting the houfe of GoD,by hearing the word preached,by cherifhing the teachers therof by caring for the Church as a moft tender and louing nourcing Father. There are infinite arguments of this right Chriftian and Religious af­ fection in your M a 1 e s t 1 e; but none is more ftxcible to declare it to othcrs,then the vehement and perpetuated defire of the accompliftiing ajid publifhing ofthis W orke, which now with all humilitie we prefent vnto your M A1 E s TIE. For when your Highnefte had once out ofdeepe iudg> ment apprehended, how convenient it was, That out ofthe Originall fa> cred tongues, together with comparingofthe labours, both in ourowne and other forreigne Languages,ofmany worthy men who went before vs, there fhould be one more exaft Tranflation ofthe holy Scriptures into the Englifhtongu^-^yow Mai est i e didneuerdefift,tovrgeand to excite thofe to whom itwas commended, that the worke might be haftencd,and thatthebufineflemightbcexpedited in fo decent a maner, asamatterof fuch importance might iuftly require. And now at laft,by the Mercy of GoD,and the continuance ofour Laboursjit being brought vnto fuch a conclufion, as that we haue great hope thatthe Church ofTw^/uW fhall reape good fruit thereby; we hold it our duetytoofferit toyourM a i est 1 E,notonelyastoourKingandSoueraigne,but as to theprincipallmoouerand Author ofthe Worke.

The firft Romane Emperour did neuer doe a more pleafing deed to the learned, tiunuuieit nor more profitable to pofteritie,forconferuing the record oftimes in truefuppucation; then when he correifted the Calender, and ordered the yeere according to the courfe ot the Sunne: and yet this was imputed to him for noueltie,and arrogancie,and procured to him great obloquie. So the firft Chriftened Emperour (at the leaftwife that openly profefled the faith himfelfe^and allowed others to doe the like ) for ftrengthening che Empire ac his greac charges, and prouiding for the Church, as he did,got for his labour the name fi^TZ/z-, as who would lay, a waftefull Prince, that hadneede of a Guardian,or ouerleer.

This is the tranflation ofthe Seuentie Interpretcrs,comrnoiily 16 called, whicli prepared the way for our Sauiour among the Gentiles by wnt ten preaching, as Saint Iohn Baptift did among the Iewes by vocall. For the Grecians being defirous of learning.were notwouttofuflerbookesof worth to lye moulding iii Kings Libraries, but hadnianvot their feruants,ready fcribes, to copie them out.and lb they were difperfed and made conamon.
