25 Y he aquí que había á la sazon en Jerusalem un hombre llamado Siméon, y este hombre justo, y pio esperaba la consolacion de Israel, y el Espíritu Santo estaba en él. 26 Y le había sido revelado por el Espíritu Santo, que no vería la muerte, sin haber visto antes el Christo del Señor. 27 Y vinó en el Espíritu al templo, y cuando introducían los padres al Niño Jesus, para hacer con él conforme á la costumbre de la Ley; 28 El tambien le tomó en sus brazos, y bendijó á Dios, y dijó. 29 Ahora, despides Señor, á tu siervo, conforme á tu palabra, en paz. 30 Porque han visto mis ojos tu salvacion, 31 La cual has preparado ante la faz de todos los pueblos, 32 Luz para ser revelada á los Gentiles, y gloria de tu pueblo Israel. 33 Y Joseph y su madre estaban maravillados de las cosas que se decían de él. 34 Y bendijólos Simeon, y dijó á María su madre: Mira, este está aquí para caida, y para recobro de muchos en Israel, y para blanco de contradiccion.

35 Y una espada traspasará tambien tu propia alma, paraque sean revelados los pensamientos de muchos corazones. 36 Y había una Profetisa llamada Ana, hija de Phanuel, de la tribu de Aser; la cual erá muy avanzada en edad, y había vivido siete años con sumarido desde su virginidad. 37 Y erá una viuda como de ochenta y quatro años, la cual mo se apartaba del templo, y servía á Dios en ayunos y oraciones de noche y de dia. 38 Y como esta llegase en la

25 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose mame uvas Simeon: and the same man unas just and devout, waiting for the consolatien of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him. 26 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. 27 And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law, 28 Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said, 29 Lord, now lettest thouthy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: 30 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, 31 Which thou hast prepared be. fore the face of all people; 32 A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel. 33 And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him. 34 And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against; 35 (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also;) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed. 36 And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with a husband seven years from her virginity; 37 And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day. . . 38 And she coming in that inmisma hora, confesó tambien al Señor; y hablaba de él á todos los que esperaban redencion en Jerusalem. 39 Y habiendo cumplido con todas las cosas segun la Ley del Señor, volvieronse á Galiléa á su ciudad de Nazareth. 40 Y el niño crecía y se fortalecía en espíritu, lleno de sabiduria, y la gracia de Dios erá sobre él.

41 Y sus padres iban todos los años á Jerusalem en el dia solemne de la pascua.

42 Y cuando el erá de doce años, subieron á Jerusalem, conforme á la costumbre del dia de la fiesta.

43 Yacabados los dias, volviendo ellos, Jesus el niño, se quedó en Jerusalem, sin saberlo Joseph ni su madre.

44 Y creyendo que estaba con la comitiva, anduvieron camino de un dia, y buscabanle entre los parientes, y entre los conocidos.

45 Y como no le hallasen, volvieron á Jerusalem buscandole.

46 Y aconteció que tres dias despues le hallaron en el templo, sentado en medio de los doctores, oyendolos, y preguntandoles.

47 Y todos los que le oían se pasmaban de su inteligencia, y de sus respuestas. 48 Y cuando le vieron, se maravillaron. Y le dijó su madre. Hijo ¿porqué lo has hecho así con nosotros? He aquí, tu padre, y yo te hemos buscado afligidos. 49 Y él les dijó ¿Porqué razon me buscabais? No sabiais que en las cosas que son de mi Padre me conviene estar? 50 Mas ellos no entendieron lo que les había dicho. 51 Y descendió con ellos, y vinó Nazareth, y estaba sugeto á ellos.

do Presidente de Judea Poncio Pilato, y Herodes tetrarcha de Galiléa, y su hermano Philippo tetrarcha de Yturéa, y de la Provincia de Trachonite, y Lysania tetrarcha de Abilene.

2 Siendo sumos Sacerdotes Annás y Cayphás, la palabra del Dios vinó á Juan, hijo de Zacharías, en el desierto.

3 Y vinó por toda la tierra comarcana del Jordan, predicando bautismo de arrepentimiento para remision de pecados.

4 Como está escrito en el libro de las palabras del profeta Isaías diciendo: voz del que clama en el desierto. Aparejad el camino del Señor, haced derechas sus sendas.

-5 Todo valle se llenará, y todo monte y collado se abajará, y lo torcido será enderezado, y lo fragoso allanado.

6 Y toda carne verá la salvacion de Dios.

7 Y decía á la multitud que vemía para ser bautizados por él: generacion de víboras, ? quién os enseñó á huir de la ira venidera?

8 Haced pues frutos dignos de arrepentimiento, y no cómenceis á decir en vosotros mismos; Tenemos por padre á Abraham: Porque yo os digo, que Dios puede levantar de estas piedras hijos á Abraham.

9 Porque está la segur puesta á la raiz de los árboles. Pues todo

CHAPTER, III.

OW in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Cesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of Iturea and of the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias the tetrarch. of Abilene, 2 Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness. 3 And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins; 4 As it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. 5 Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low ; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth ; 6 And all flesh shall see the salvation of God. 7 Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for Isay unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. 9 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every árbol que no hace buen fruto, cortado será; y echado en el fuego.

10 Y le preguntaban las gentes, y decían. ¿Pues qué haremos?

11 Y respondiendo les dijó; El que tiene dos túnicas dé al que no tiene; y el que tiene que comer, haga lo mismo.

12 Y vinieron tambien á él Publicanos para ser bautizados, y le dijeron: Maestro, ¿qué haremos?

13 Y él les dijó: No exijais mas de lo que os está ordenado.

14. Y preguntabanle tambien los soldados diciendo, y nosotros ¿qué haremos? Y dijóles, No maltrateis ánadie, niusies de fraude, y contentaos con vuestro salario.

15 Y como el pueblo estaba en expectacion, y todos pensando en sus corazones acerca de Juan, si sería el Christo.

16 Respondió Juan diciendo á todos: Yo en verdad os bautizo en agua; pero viene uno mas poderoso que yo, la correa de cuyos zapatos no soy digno de desatar. El os bautizará en Espíritu Santo, y fuego.

17 Cuyo bieldo está en su mano, y limpiará su era, y juntará el trigo en su trox, y quemará la paja en fuego, que nunca se apaga.

18 Y así anunciaba muchas otras cosas al pueblo en sus exhortacio16S. 19 Mas Herodes el tetrarcha, siendo reprendido por él á causa de Herodías muger de su hermano Philippo, y acerca de todos los males que Herodes había hecho. 20 Añadió á todos tambien este, y encerró á Juan en la carcel. 21 Y aconteció que como todo el pueblo fuese bautizado, cuando Jesus erá tambien bautizado y estamdo orando, se abrió el cielo.

tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 10 And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then ? 11 He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise. 12 Then came also publicans to be baptized, and said unto him, Master, what shall we do? 13 And he said unto them, Exact no more than that which is appointed you. 14 And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do ? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, meither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages. 15 And as the people were in expectation, and all men mused in their hearts of John, whether he were the Christ, or not; 16 John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire: 17 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable. 18 And many other things in his exhortation preached he unto the people. 19 But Herod the tetrarch, being reproved by him for Herodias his brother Philip's wife, and for all the evils which Herod had done,

20 Added yet this above all, that he shut up John in prison.

21 Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened,
