THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Matthew (Author Matthew)

1:20But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

1:21And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Luke (Author Luke)

1:28And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.

1:29And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.

1:30And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.

1:31And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

1:32He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:

1:33And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

1:34Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?

1:35And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

1:36And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.

1:37For with God nothing shall be impossible.

1:38And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.

2:7And 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.

2:8And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

2:9And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

2:10And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

2:11For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

2:12And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

2:13And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

2:14Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

2:15And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
