19 After his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, and before they came together, she was found to be with child (of the Holy Spirit):

20 and Joseph her husband, being a good man, and not willing to expose her, was minded to put her away privately.

21 But, while he was thinking on these things, behold an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take to thee Mary for thy wife; for, that which is in her, is begotten of the Holy Spirit : 22 and she will bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS (that is, Saviour); for he will save his people from their sins.

23 Now all this was done, that the word might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying, Isaiah, vii. 14. 24" Behold, a virgin shall

"be with child, and shall bring

"forth a son, and they shall "call his name Emma-nu-el; "which being interpreted is, "God with us."

25 Then Joseph, awaking from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him, and he took her to him for his wife;

26 but knew her not, till she had brought forth her son and he called his name JESUS.


AND after Jesus had been

born in Bethlehem of Judea, in the days of Herod, the king, behold, wise men of the east came to Jerusalem, 2 saying, Where is he who hath been born King of the Jews? for we saw his star in Num. xxiv. the east, and are come to worship him.

3 But when King Herod heard these words, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him;

4 and gathering together all the chief priests, and scribes of the people, he inquired of them, Where the Christ was to be born?

5 And they said to him, In Bethlehem of Judea; for it is thus written by the prophet,


6" And thou Bethlehem, in Mich. v. 2. "the land of Judah, art not "the least among the princes "of Judah for out of thee "shall come a Governor, who "shall rule my people Israel." 7 Then Herod, privately calling the wise men, learned from them the exact time when the star had appeared:

8 and sending them to Bethlehem, he said, Go, and search diligently for the child; and when ye have found him, bring me word, that I also may go and worship him.

9 And when they had heard

the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they had seen in the east, went before them, until it came and stood over the place where the child


10 and when they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy:

11 and entering into the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down, and worshipped him and when they had opened their treasures, they presented to him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh: 12 but, being warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they departed to their own country by another way. 13 And when they had departed to their own country, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for, Herod is about to seek the child, to destroy him.

14 And he arose, and took the child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt;

15 and was there until the death of Herod: that the word might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through Hos. xi. 1. the prophet, saying, " Out of Egypt have I called my son."

19 But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt,

20 saying, Arise, and take the child and his mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they who sought the child's life, are dead.

21 And he arose, and took the child and his mother, and entered into the land of Israel; 22 but, hearing that Archelaus reigned in Judea in the place of his father Herod, he feared to go thither:

23 nevertheless, being warn- Luke, ii. 4, 39. ed in a dream, he returned into the country of Galilee; and came and dwelt in the city Ib. called Nazareth.

24 So that the word spoken through the prophets was fulfilled," He shall be called a "Nazarite."


AND in those days came

John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judea, 2 and saying; "Repent ye: "for the kingdom of heaven "is at hand.”

3 For, this is he who was spoken of through the prophet Isaiah, saying, "The voice of "him who crieth in the wil"derness, Prepare ye the way "of the Lord, make his paths "strait."

2 Kings, i. 8. 4 And the same, John, had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle round his loins; and his food was locusts and wild honey.

5 Then Jerusalem and all Judea, and all the region on both sides of the Jordan, went out to him;

6 and were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins.

7 But, when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said to them, O offspring of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath which is about to come?


9 and think not to within yourselves, We have Abraham for our father: for I tell you, that God is able from these stones to raise up children to Abraham:

10 and already the axe is laid at the root of the trees; every tree, therefore, that bringeth not forth good fruit, is cut down, and cast into the fire.

11 I indeed baptize you with water, to repentance; but he who cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to carry; he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit, and with fire:

12 whose fan is in his hand; and he will thoroughly purge his threshing-floor, and will gather his corn into his barn; but, the chaff he will burn c. xiii. 30. with unquenchable fire.

13 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to the Jordan, to John, to be baptized by him :

14 and John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized by thee, and comest thou to me?

15 but Jesus answering said to him, Suffer it now: for so it becometh us to accomplish Rom. iii. 25, the whole of justification. Then he suffered him.

16 And when Jesus had been baptized, he went up straightway out of the water and,

17 From that time Jesus also began to preach, and to say; "Repent ye, for the kingdom "of heaven is at hand.

18 And as he walked by the Mark, i. 16. sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea, for they were fishers;

19 and he saith to them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men:

20 and they straightway left their nets, and followed him. 21 And going on from thence, he saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with their father Zebedee, mending their nets:

22 and he called them; and they immediately left the ship, and their father, and followed him.


AND Jesus went about all

Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom; and healing every disease, and every infirmity, among the people.

2 And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought to him all sick persons, affected with divers diseases and sufferings; and those possess ed with devils, and those that

were lunatic, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.

3 And great multitudes followed him from Galilee, and Decapolis, and Jerusalem, Luke, vi. 17. and Judea, and from beyond Jordan.

4 And seeing the multitudes, he went up to a mountain: and when he had sat down, his disciples came to him;

5 and he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying: 6 Blessed are the beggars in c. vii. 7, 8, 11. spirit; for their's is the kingdom of heaven.

7 Blessed are they that mourn; for they shall be comforted.

8 Blessed are the meek; for they shall inherit the earth. 9 Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for justification; for they shall be filled.

10 Blessed are the merciful; for they shall obtain mercy. 11 Blessed are the pure in heart; for they shall see God.

12 Blessed are the peacemakers; for they shall be called the children of God.

13 Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of justification; for their's is the kingdom of heaven.

14 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and say every thing evil against you, falsely, for my sake:

Luke, xviii. 1.
