Speaking of Context....

[Miles Coverdale was a 16th-century Bible translator who produced the first complete printed translation of the Bible into English.]

The words of Miles Coverdale are much to the point here:

‘It shall greatly help ye to understand Scripture, if thou mark

not only what is spoken, or written,

but of whom,

and to whom,

with what words,

at what time,


to what intent,

with what circumstance,

considering what goeth before,

and what followeth’.
