Words of Enzinas in the preface of his 1543 New Testament

*Note he dedicates his versions to an earthly king.


"These causes, your Majesty, have moved me to want to undertake this work, of which I've wanted to give to your Majesty a large account ... without any doubt of how worthy is the Royal Throne of your Majesty, worthy of knowledge, worthy of judgment, worthy of approval and worthy of your defense.  And I well know the hearts of good Princes are directed by God, that your Majesty will well receive my work and with authority will defend it and protect it."
