And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Cesar Augustus, that all the world should be 2 taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was 3 governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into 4 his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out

of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, unto the city of David,

which is called Bethlehem, (because he was of the house 5 and lineage of David,) to be taxed with Mary his espoused 6 wife, being great with child. And so it was, that

while they were there, the days were accomplished that she 7 should be delivered. And she brought forth her first born

son, and wrapped him in swaddling-clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the

glory of the Lord shone round about them; and they were 10 sore afraid. And the angel said unto them ; Fear not; for

behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be 11 to all people ; for unto you is born this day, in the city of 12 David, a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall

be a sign unto you ; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swad13 dling-clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was

with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising 14 God, and saying; “Glory to God in the highest, and on 15 earth peace; good will toward men.” And 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 16 the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with

haste, and found Mary and Joseph, and the babe lying in a 17 manger. And when they had seen it, they made known

abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. 18 And all they that heard it, wondered at those things which 19 were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these 20 things, and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds

returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

called JESUS, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in

the womb. And when the days of their purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Je23 rusalem, to present him to the Lord, (as it is written in the

law of the Lord; “Every male that openeth the womb shall 24 be called holy to the Lord ; ") and to offer a sacrifice, accord

ing to that which is said in the law of the Lord; “A pair 25 of turtle doves, or two young pigeons.” And behold,

there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon ; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation 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. 21 And he came by the Spirit into the temple ; and when the

parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the 28 custom of the law; then took he him up in his arms, and 29 blessed God, and said ; Lord, now lettest thou thy servant 30 depart in peace, according to thy word; for mine

eyes 31 have seen thy salvation, which thou hast prepared before 32 the face of all people ; a light to lighten the Gentiles, and 33 the glory of thy people Israel. And his father and

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 36 the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed. 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 37 with a husband seven years from her virginity ; and she was

a widow of about four-score and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and

pray38 ers night and day. And she, coming in that instant, gave

thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem.

Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men 2 from the east to Jerusalem, saying ; Where is he that is

born King of the Jews ? for we have seen his star in the 3 east, and are come to worship him. When Herod, the

king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusa4 lem with him; and when he had gathered all the chief

priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of & them where Christ should be born. And they said unto

him ; In Bethlehem of Judea; for thus it is written by the 6 prophet ; “ And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda; for out of thee

shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel." 7 Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, in8 quired of them diligently what time the star appeared, and he sent them to Bethlehem, and said ; Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him 9 also.

When they had heard the king, they departed. And, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them,

till it came and stood over where the young child was. 10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great 11 joy ; and when they were come unto the house, they saw

the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him, and when they had opened their treasures

they presented unto him gifts, gold, and frankincense, and 12 myrrh. And being warned of God in a dream that they

should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.

And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying ; Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt,

and be thou there until I bring thee word; for Herod will 14 seek the young child, to destroy him. When he arose,

he took the young child and his mother by night, and de15 parted into Egypt; and was there until the death of Herod;

that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by

the prophet, saying; “Out of Egypt have I called my son.” 16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise

men, was exceeding wroth ; and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time

was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, 18 saying; “ In Rama there was a voice heard, lamentation,

and weeping, and great mourning ; Rachel weeping for her

children; and would not be comforted, because they are 19 not. But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the 20 Lord appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt, saying ;

Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and go into

the land of Israel; for they are dead which sought the 21 young child's life. And he arose, and took the

young

child 2 and his mother, and came into the land of Israel. But

when he heard that Archelaus did reign in Judea in the room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go thither ; notwithstanding, being warned of God in a dream, he turned aside into the parts of Galilee.

And the child grew and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom ; and the grace of God was upon him.

Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the 42 feast of the passover. And when he was twelve years old,

they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast; 43 and when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the

child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem ; and Joseph and his 44 mother knew not of it. But they, supposing him to have

been in company, went a day's journey, and they sought 45 him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance. And when they

found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking 46 him. And it came to pass, that after three days they found

him in the temple sitting in the midst of the doctors, both 47 hearing them and asking them questions. And all that heard

him were astonished at his understanding and answers. 48 And when they saw him, they were amazed; and his mother

said unto him ; Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us ? be49 hold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing. And he
