Evolution of

English Language

  

English Language has changed tremendously over the time. Here is one paragraph from Bible in Old English,
Middle English, King James Version and Modern English. 

Old English 

Solice on am dagum ws geworden gebod from am casere Augusto, t eall ymbehwyrft wre tomearcod. eos tomearcodnes ws ryst geworden fram am deman Syrige Cirino. And calle hig eodon, and syndrige ferdon on hyra ceastre. a ferde Iosep fram Galilea of receastre Nazareth on Iudeisce ceastre Dauides, seo is genemned Bethleem, for am e he ws of Dauides huse and hirede; t he ferde mid Mariane him beweddod ws, and ws geeacnod. Solice ws geworden a hi ar wron, hire dags wron gefyllede pt heo cende. And heo cende hyre frumcennedan sunu, and hine mid cildclaum bewand, and hine on binne alede, for am e hig nfdon rum on cumena huse. And hydras wron on am ylcan rice waciende, and nihtwccan healdende ofer heora heorda. a stod Drihtnes engel him to cws, Nelle ge eow adrdan; solice nu ic eow bodie mycelne gefean, se bio callum folce; for am to dg eow ys Hlend acenned, se is Drihten Crist, on Dauides ceastre. And a ws fringa geworden mid am engle mycelnes heofenlices werydes, God heriendra and us cweendra, Gode sy wuldor on heahnesse, and on eoran sybb mannum godes willan.

Middle English
(
translation by John Wycliffe, c.1380-83)

And it was don in tho daies, a maundement wente out fro the emperour August, thatal the world schulde be discryued. This firste discryuyng was maad of Cyryn,iustice of Sirie. And alle men wenten tomake professioun, ech in to his owne citee. And Joseph went vp fro Galilee, fro the citee Nazareth, in to Judee, in toa citee of Dauid, that is clepid Bethleem, for that he was of the hous and of the meyne of Dauid, that he schulde knouleche with Marie, his wijf, thatwas weddid to hym, and was greet with child. And it was don, while thei weren there, the daies were fulfillid, that sche schulde bere child. And sche bare hir first borun sone, and slappide hym in clothis, and leide hym in a cratche, for ther ws no place to hym in no chaumbir. And scheepherdis weren in the same cuntre, wakynge and kepynge the watchis of the nygt on her flok. And lo! The aungel of the Lord stood bisidis hem, and the clernesse of God schinede aboute hem; and thei dredden with greet drede. And the aungel seide to hem, Nyle ye drede; for lo! Ypreche to you a greet ioye, that schal be to al puple. For a sauyoure is borun to dai to you, that is Crist the Lord, in the citee of Dauid. And this is a tokene to you; ye schulen fynde a yong child wlappid in clothis,and leid in a cratche. And sudenli ther was maad with the aungel a multitude of heuenli knygthod, heriynge God, and seiynge, Glorie be in the higeste thingis to God, and in erthe pees be to men of good wille.

King James version, c.1604

And it came to pass in those dayes, that thee went out a decree from Cesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria) All went to bee taxed, euery one into his owne citie. And Joseph also went vp fro Galilee, out of the citie of Nazareth, into Judea, vnto the citie of Dauid, which is called Bethlehem, (because he was of the house and linage of Dauid,) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that while they were there, the dayes were accomplished that she should be deliuered. And she brought foorth her first borne sonne, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger, because there was no roome for them in the Inne. And there were in the same countrey shepheards abiding in y field, keeping watch ouer their flocke by night. And loe, the Angle of the Lord came vpon them and the glory of the Lord shone round about them and they were sore afraid. And the Angel said vnto them, Feare not: For vnto you behold, I bring you good tidings of great ioy, which shall be to all people. For vnto you is borne this day, in the citie of Dauid, a Sauiour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a signe vnto you; yee shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the Angle a multitude of the heauenly hoste praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good wil towards men.

Modern English

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David.) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
