1:26And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
1:27To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.
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.
2:1And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.
2:2(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
2:3And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
2:4And 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:)
2:5To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
2:6And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
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.
2:16And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
2:17And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.
2:18And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.
2:19But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.
2:20And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.
5:12Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
5:13(For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
5:14Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.
5:15But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.
5:16And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.
5:17For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
5:18Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.
5:19For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
5:20Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:
5:21That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.
15:22For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
