1 ¶ Forasmuch1895 as many4183 have taken in hand2021 to set forth in order392 a declaration1335 of4012 those things4229 which are most surely believed4135 among1722 us,2254 2 Even2531 as they delivered3860 them unto us,2254 which3588 from575 the beginning746 were1096 eyewitnesses,845 and2532 ministers5257 of the word;3056 3 It seemed1380 good to me also,2504 having had perfect199 understanding3877 of all things3956 from the very first,509 to write1125 unto thee4671 in order,2517 most excellent2903 Theophilus,2321 4 That2443 thou mightest know1921 the certainty803 of4012 those things,3056 wherein3739 thou hast been instructed.2727 5 ¶ There was1096 in1722 the days2250 of Herod,2264 the king935 of Judaea,2449 a certain5100 priest2409 named3686 Zacharias,2197 of1537 the course2183 of Abia:7 and2532 his846 wife1135 was of1537 the daughters2364 of Aaron,2 and2532 her846 name3686 was Elisabeth.1665 6 And1161 they were2258 both297 righteous1342 before1799 God,2316 walking4198 in1722 all3956 the commandments1785 and2532 ordinances1345 of the Lord2962 blameless.273 7 And2532 they846 had2258 no3756 child,5043 because2530 that Elisabeth1665 was2258 barren,4723 and2532 they846 both297 were2258 now well stricken4260 in1722 years.2250 8 And1161 it came to pass,1096 that while1722 he846 executed the priest's office2407 before1725 God2316 in1722 the order5010 of his846 course,2183 9 According2596 to the custom1485 of the priest's office,2405 his lot2975 was to burn incense2370 when he went1525 into1519 the temple3485 of the Lord.2962 10 And2532 the whole3956 multitude4128 of the people2992 were2258 praying4336 without1854 at the time5610 of incense.2368 11 And1161 there appeared3700 unto him846 an angel32 of the Lord2962 standing2476 on1537 the right side1188 of the altar2379 of incense.2368 12 And2532 when Zacharias2197 saw1492 him, he was troubled,5015 and2532 fear5401 fell1968 upon1909 him.846 13 But1161 the angel32 said2036 unto4314 him,846 Fear5399 not,3361 Zacharias:2197 for1360 thy4675 prayer1162 is heard;1522 and2532 thy4675 wife1135 Elisabeth1665 shall bear1080 thee4671 a son,5207 and2532 thou shalt call2564 his846 name3686 John.2491 14 And2532 thou4671 shalt have2071 joy5479 and2532 gladness;20 and2532 many4183 shall rejoice5463 at1909 his846 birth.1083 15 For1063 he shall be2071 great3173 in the sight1799 of the Lord,2962 and2532 shall drink4095 neither3364 wine3631 nor2532 strong drink;4608 and2532 he shall be filled4130 with the Holy40 Ghost,4151 even2089 from1537 his846 mother's3384 womb.2836 16 And2532 many4183 of the children5207 of Israel2474 shall he turn1994 to1909 the Lord2962 their846 God.2316 17 And2532 he846 shall go4281 before1799 him846 in1722 the spirit4151 and2532 power1411 of Elias,2243 {Or, by} to turn1994 the hearts2588 of the fathers3962 to1909 the children,5043 and2532 the disobedient545 to1722 the wisdom5428 of the just;1342 to make ready2090 a people2992 prepared2680 for the Lord.2962 18 And2532 Zacharias2197 said2036 unto4314 the angel,32 Whereby2596 5101 shall I know1097 this?5124 for1063 I1473 am1510 an old man,4246 and2532 my3450 wife1135 well stricken4260 in1722 years.2250 846 19 And2532 the angel32 answering611 said2036 unto him,846 I1473 am1510 Gabriel,1043 that stand3936 in the presence1799 of God;2316 and2532 am sent649 to speak2980 unto4314 thee,4571 and2532 to shew2097 2794 thee4671 these5023 glad tidings.2097 20 And,2532 behold,2400 thou2071 shalt be dumb,4623 and2532 not3361 able1410 to speak,2980 until891 the day2250 that3739 these things5023 shall be performed,1096 because473 3739 thou believest4100 not3756 my3450 words,3056 which3748 shall be fulfilled4137 in1519 their846 season.2540 21 And2532 the people2992 waited2258 4328 for Zacharias,2197 and2532 marvelled2296 that1722 he846 tarried so long5549 in1722 the temple.3485 22 And1161 when he came out,1831 he could1410 not3756 speak2980 unto them:846 and2532 they perceived1921 that3754 he had seen3708 a vision3701 in1722 the temple:3485 for2532 he846 beckoned2258 1269 unto them,846 and2532 remained1265 speechless.2974 23 And2532 it came to pass,1096 that, as soon as5613 the days2250 of his846 ministration3009 were accomplished,4130 he departed565 to1519 his own846 house.3624 24 And1161 after3326 those5025 days2250 his846 wife1135 Elisabeth1665 conceived,4815 and2532 hid4032 herself1438 five4002 months,3376 saying,3004 25 Thus3754 3779 hath4160 2794 the Lord2962 dealt4160 with me3427 in1722 the days2250 wherein3739 he looked on1896 me, to take away851 my3450 reproach3681 among1722 men.444 26 ¶ And1161 in1722 the sixth1623 month3376 the angel32 Gabriel1043 was sent649 from5259 God2316 unto1519 a city4172 of Galilee,1056 named3739 3686 Nazareth,3478 27 To4314 a virgin3933 espoused3423 to a man435 whose3739 name3686 was Joseph,2501 of1537 the house3624 of David;1138 and2532 the virgin's3933 name3686 was Mary.3137 28 And2532 the angel32 came in1525 unto4314 her,846 and said,2036 Hail,5463 thou that art highly favoured,5487 the Lord2962 is with3326 thee:4675 blessed2127 art thou4771 among1722 women.1135 29 And1161 when she saw1492 him, she was troubled1298 at1909 his846 saying,3056 and2532 cast in her mind1260 what manner4217 of salutation783 this3778 should be.1498 30 And2532 the angel32 said2036 unto her,846 Fear5399 not,3361 Mary:3137 for1063 thou hast found2147 favour5485 with3844 God.2316 31 And,2532 behold,2400 thou shalt conceive4815 in1722 thy womb,1064 and2532 bring forth5088 a son,5207 and2532 shalt call2564 his846 name3686 JESUS.2424 32 He3778 shall be2071 great,3173 and2532 shall be called2564 the Son5207 of the Highest:5310 and2532 the Lord2962 God2316 shall give1325 unto him846 the throne2362 of his846 father3962 David:1138 33 And2532 he shall reign936 over1909 the house3624 of Jacob2384 for1519 ever;165 and2532 of his846 kingdom932 there shall be2071 no3756 end.5056 34 Then1161 said2036 Mary3137 unto4314 the angel,32 How4459 shall2071 2794 this5124 be,2071 seeing1893 I know1097 not3756 a man?435 35 And2532 the angel32 answered611 and said2036 unto her,846 The Holy40 Ghost4151 shall come1904 upon1909 thee,4571 and2532 the power1411 of the Highest5310 shall overshadow1982 thee:4671 therefore1352 also2532 that holy thing40 which shall be born1080 of1537 thee4675 shall be called2564 the Son5207 of God.2316 36 And,2532 behold,2400 thy4675 cousin4773 Elisabeth,1665 she846 hath4815 2794 also2532 conceived4815 a son5207 in1722 her846 old age:1094 and2532 this3778 is2076 the sixth1623 month3376 with her,846 who3588 was called2564 barren.4723 37 For3754 with3844 God2316 nothing3756 3956 4487 shall be impossible.101 38 And1161 Mary3137 said,2036 Behold2400 the handmaid1399 of the Lord;2962 be it1096 unto me3427 according2596 to thy4675 word.4487 And2532 the angel32 departed565 from575 her.846 39 ¶ And1161 Mary3137 arose450 in1722 those5025 days,2250 and went4198 into1519 the hill country3714 with3326 haste,4710 into1519 a city4172 of Juda;2448 40 And2532 entered1525 into1519 the house3624 of Zacharias,2197 and2532 saluted782 Elisabeth.1665 41 And2532 it came to pass,1096 that, when5613 Elisabeth1665 heard191 the salutation783 of Mary,3137 the babe1025 leaped4640 in1722 her846 womb;2836 and2532 Elisabeth1665 was filled4130 with the Holy40 Ghost:4151 42 And2532 she spake out400 with a loud3173 voice,5456 and2532 said,2036 Blessed2127 art thou4771 among1722 women,1135 and2532 blessed2127 is the fruit2590 of thy4675 womb.2836 43 And2532 whence4159 is this5124 to me,3427 that2443 the mother3384 of my3450 Lord2962 should come2064 to4314 me?3165 44 For,1063 lo,2400 as soon as5613 the voice5456 of thy4675 salutation783 sounded1096 in1519 mine3450 ears,3775 the babe1025 leaped4640 in1722 my3450 womb2836 for1722 joy.20 45 And2532 blessed3107 is she {Or, which believed, that there} that believed:4100 for3754 there shall be2071 a performance5050 of those things which were told2980 her846 from3844 the Lord.2962 46 ¶ And2532 Mary3137 said,2036 My3450 soul5590 doth magnify3170 the Lord,2962 47 And2532 my3450 spirit4151 hath rejoiced21 in1909 God2316 my3450 Saviour.4990 48 For3754 he hath regarded1914 1909 the low estate5014 of his846 handmaiden:1399 for,1063 behold,2400 from575 henceforth3568 all3956 generations1074 shall call3106 2794 me3165 blessed.3106 49 For3754 he that is mighty1415 hath done4160 to me3427 great things;3167 and2532 holy40 is his846 name.3686 50 And2532 his846 mercy1656 is on them that fear5399 him846 from1519 generation1074 to generation.1074 51 He hath shewed4160 strength2904 with1722 his846 arm;1023 he hath scattered1287 the proud5244 in the imagination1271 of their846 hearts.2588 52 He hath put down2507 the mighty1413 from575 their seats,2362 and2532 exalted5312 them of low degree.5011 53 He hath filled1705 the hungry3983 with good things;18 and2532 the rich4147 he hath sent1821 2794 empty2756 away.1821 54 He hath holpen482 his846 servant3816 Israel,2474 in remembrance3415 of his mercy;1656 55 As2531 he spake2980 to4314 our2257 fathers,3962 to Abraham,11 and2532 to his846 seed4690 for1519 ever.165 56 And1161 Mary3137 abode3306 with4862 her846 about5616 three5140 months,3376 and2532 returned5290 to1519 her own846 house.3624 57 ¶ Now1161 Elisabeth's1665 full4130 2794 time5550 came4130 that she846 should be delivered;5088 and2532 she brought forth1080 a son.5207 58 And2532 her neighbours4040 and2532 her846 cousins4773 heard191 how3754 the Lord2962 had shewed great3170 mercy1656 846 upon3326 her;846 and2532 they rejoiced4796 with her.846 59 And2532 it came to pass,1096 that on1722 the eighth3590 day2250 they came2064 to circumcise4059 the child;3813 and2532 they called2564 him846 Zacharias,2197 after1909 the name3686 of his846 father.3962 60 And2532 his846 mother3384 answered611 and said,2036 Not3780 so; but235 he shall be called2564 John.2491 61 And2532 they said2036 unto4314 her,846 3754 There is2076 none3762 of1722 thy4675 kindred4772 that3739 is called2564 by this5129 name.3686 62 And1161 they made signs1770 to his846 father,3962 how5101 302 he would have2309 him846 called.2564 63 And2532 he asked for154 a writing table,4093 and wrote,1125 saying,3004 His846 name3686 is2076 John.2491 And2532 they marvelled2296 all.3956 64 And1161 his846 mouth4750 was opened455 immediately,3916 and2532 his846 tongue1100 loosed, and2532 he spake,2980 and praised2127 God.2316 65 And2532 fear5401 came1096 on1909 all3956 that dwelt round about4039 them:846 and2532 all3956 these5023 {Or, things} sayings4487 were noised abroad1255 throughout1722 all3650 the hill country3714 of Judaea.2449 66 And2532 all3956 they that heard191 them laid them up5087 in1722 their846 hearts,2588 saying,3004 What5101 manner686 of child3813 shall2071 2794 this5124 be!2071 And2532 the hand5495 of the Lord2962 was2258 with3326 him.846 67 ¶ And2532 his846 father3962 Zacharias2197 was filled4130 with the Holy40 Ghost,4151 and2532 prophesied,4395 saying,3004 68 Blessed2128 be the Lord2962 God2316 of Israel;2474 for3754 he hath visited1980 and2532 redeemed3085 his846 people,2992 4160 69 And2532 hath raised up1453 an horn2768 of salvation4991 for us2254 in1722 the house3624 of his846 servant3816 David;1138 70 As2531 he spake2980 by1223 the mouth4750 of his846 holy40 prophets,4396 which3588 have been since575 the world began:165 71 That we should be saved4991 from1537 our2257 enemies,2190 and2532 from1537 the hand5495 of all3956 that hate3404 us;2248 72 To perform4160 the mercy1656 promised to3326 our2257 fathers,3962 and2532 to remember3415 his846 holy40 covenant;1242 73 The oath3727 which3739 he sware3660 to4314 our2257 father3962 Abraham,11 74 That he would grant1325 unto us,2254 that we being delivered4506 out of1537 the hand5495 of our2257 enemies2190 might serve3000 him846 without fear,870 75 In1722 holiness3742 and2532 righteousness1343 before1799 him,846 all3956 the days2250 of our2257 life.2222 76 And2532 thou,4771 child,3813 shalt be called2564 the prophet4396 of the Highest:5310 for1063 thou shalt go4313 before4253 the face4383 of the Lord2962 to prepare2090 his846 ways;3598 77 To give1325 knowledge1108 of salvation4991 unto his846 people2992 {Or, for} by1722 the remission859 of their846 sins,266 78 Through1223 the {Or, bowels of the mercy} tender4698 mercy1656 of our2257 God;2316 whereby1722 3739 the dayspring395 from1537 on high5311 hath visited1980 us,2248 79 To give light2014 to them that sit2521 in1722 darkness4655 and2532 in the shadow4639 of death,2288 to guide2720 our2257 feet4228 into1519 the way3598 of peace.1515 80 And1161 the child3813 grew,837 and2532 waxed strong2901 in spirit,4151 and2532 was2258 in1722 the deserts2048 till2193 the day2250 of his846 shewing323 unto4314 Israel.2474
