as touching to please God, there is no work better than another…whether thou be an apostle or a shoemaker…thou art a kitchen page and washest thy master’s dishes, another is an Apostle and preacheth the Word of God

…as touching to please God, there is no work better than another…whether thou be an apostle or a shoemaker…thou art a kitchen page and washest thy master’s dishes, another is an Apostle and preacheth the Word of God. …Now if thou compare deed to deed there is difference betwixt washing of dishes and preaching of the Word of God. But as touching to please God none at all.

William Tyndale, Daniel D William, Tyndale, Yale U P 1994, New Haven and London p167/8.
