William Morgan (1545 – 10 September 1604) was Bishop of Llandaff and of St Asaph, and the translator of the first version of the whole Bible into Welsh from Greek and Hebrew. Morgan was born in 1545 at Tŷ Mawr Wybrnant, in the parish of Penmachno, near Betws-y-Coed, North Wales (there is some doubt about the exact year of his birth, his memorial in Cambridge, for example, gives 1541).

22 David left his things with the keeper of supplies, ran to the battle lines and asked his brothers how they were. This very day I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds and the wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel.
22 David left his things with the keeper of supplies, ran to the battle lines and asked his brothers how they were. 23 As he was talking with them, Goliath, the Philistine champion from Gath, stepped out from his lines and shouted his usual defiance, and David heard it. 24 Whenever the Israelites saw the man, they all fled from him in great fear. 47 All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.

David Daniell is professor emeritus of English at University College London. I enjoyed his analysis of the place of the Bible in ancient England. Hardcover: 962 pages. The constrasting outlook of the Spanish and English explorers comes from their different Bible knowledge. Columbus writes about 'The Holy Trinity' giving victory to the Spanish King. By contrast, H. Gilbert writes in 1583, "Be of good cheer therefore, for he that can not err hath said: "That before the end of the world, his word shall be preached to all the nations. Alfred, Bede, et. all had some knowledge of this famous book.
The translation of the Bible into Welsh was important to the survival of the Welsh.
An original copy of the Welsh Bible is displayed in St Asaph Cathedral, in St Asaph, North Wales. It was used at the investiture of Prince Charles as Prince of Wales in 1969.
