1 Forasmuch [1895] as many [4183] have taken in hand [2021] (5656) to set forth in order [392] (5664) a declaration [1335] of [4012] those things [4229] which are most surely believed [4135] (5772) among [1722] us [2254],
2 Even [2531] as they delivered [3860] (5627) them unto us [2254], which [3588] from [575] the beginning [746] were [1096] (5637) eyewitnesses [845], and [2532] ministers [5257] of the word [3056];
3 It seemed [1380] (5656) good to me also [2504], having had perfect [199] understanding [3877] (5761) of all things [3956] from the very first [509], to write [1125] (5658) unto thee [4671] in order [2517], most excellent [2903] Theophilus [2321],
4 That [2443] thou mightest know [1921] (5632) the certainty [803] of [4012] those things [3056], wherein [3739] thou hast been instructed [2727] (5681).
5 There was [1096] (5633) in [1722] the days [2250] of Herod [2264], the king [935] of Judaea [2449], a certain [5100] priest [2409] named [3686] Zacharias [2197], of [1537] the course [2183] of Abia [7]: and [2532] his [846] wife [1135] [was] of [1537] the daughters [2364] of Aaron [2], and [2532] her [846] name [3686] [was] Elisabeth [1665].
6 And [1161] they were [2258] (5713) both [297] righteous [1342] before [1799] God [2316], walking [4198] (5740) in [1722] all [3956] the commandments [1785] and [2532] ordinances [1345] of the Lord [2962] blameless [273].
7 And [2532] they [846] had [2258] (5713) no [3756] child [5043], because [2530] that Elisabeth [1665] was [2258] (5713) barren [4723], and [2532] they [846] both [297] were [2258] (5713) [now] well stricken [4260] (5761) in [1722] years [2250].
8 And it came to [1161] pass, that [1096] while [1722] he executed the priest's [846] office [2407] before [1725] God [2316] in the [1722] order of [5010] his [846] course, [2183]
9 According to the [2596] custom of the priest's [1485] office, his [2405] lot was to burn [2975] incense when he [2370] went [1525] into the [1519] temple of the [3485] Lord. [2962]
10 And [2532] the whole [3956] multitude [4128] of the people [2992] were [2258] (5713) praying [4336] (5740) without [1854] at the time [5610] of incense [2368].
11 And [1161] there appeared [3700] (5681) unto him [846] an angel [32] of the Lord [2962] standing [2476] (5761) on [1537] the right side [1188] of the altar [2379] of incense [2368].
12 And [2532] when Zacharias [2197] saw [1492] (5631) [him], he was troubled [5015] (5681), and [2532] fear [5401] fell [1968] (5627) upon [1909] him [846].
13 But [1161] the angel [32] said [2036] (5627) unto [4314] him [846], Fear [5399] (5732) (5737) not [3361], Zacharias [2197]: for [1360] thy [4675] prayer [1162] is heard [1522] (5681); and [2532] thy [4675] wife [1135] Elisabeth [1665] shall bear [1080] (5692) thee [4671] a son [5207], and [2532] thou shalt call [2564] (5692) his [846] name [3686] John [2491].
14 And [2532] thou [4671] shalt have [2071] (5704) joy [5479] and [2532] gladness [20]; and [2532] many [4183] shall rejoice [5463] (5690) at [1909] his [846] birth [1083].
15 For he shall [1063] be [2071] great in the [3173] sight of the [1799] Lord, [2962] and shall [2532] drink [4095] neither [3364] wine [3631] nor strong [2532] drink; [4608] and he shall be [2532] filled with the [4130] Holy [40] Ghost, [4151] even [2089] from [1537] his [846] mother's [3384] womb. [2836]
16 And [2532] many [4183] of the children [5207] of Israel [2474] shall he turn [1994] (5692) to [1909] the Lord [2962] their [846] God [2316].
17 And [2532] he [846] shall go [4281] (5695) before [1799] him [846] in [1722] the spirit [4151] and [2532] power [1411] of Elias [2243], to turn [1994] (5658) the hearts [2588] of the fathers [3962] to [1909] the children [5043], and [2532] the disobedient [545] to [1722] the wisdom [5428] of the just [1342]; to make ready [2090] (5658) a people [2992] prepared [2680] (5772) for the Lord [2962].
18 And [2532] Zacharias [2197] said [2036] (5627) unto [4314] the angel [32], Whereby [2596] [5101] shall I know [1097] (5695) this [5124]? for [1063] I [1473] am [1510] (5748) an old man [4246], and [2532] my [3450] wife [1135] well stricken [4260] (5761) in [1722] years [2250] [846].
19 And [2532] the angel [32] answering [611] (5679) said [2036] (5627) unto him [846], I [1473] am [1510] (5748) Gabriel [1043], that stand [3936] (5761) in the presence [1799] of God [2316]; and [2532] am sent [649] (5648) to speak [2980] (5658) unto [4314] thee [4571], and [2532] to shew [2097] [0] thee [4671] these [5023] glad tidings [2097] (5670).
20 And [2532], behold [2400] (5628), thou [2071] (5704) shalt be dumb [4623] (5723), and [2532] not [3361] able [1410] (5740) to speak [2980] (5658), until [891] the day [2250] that [3739] these things [5023] shall be performed [1096] (5638), because [473] [3739] thou believest [4100] (5656) not [3756] my [3450] words [3056], which [3748] shall be fulfilled [4137] (5701) in [1519] their [846] season [2540].
21 And [2532] the people [2992] waited [2258] (5713) [4328] (5723) for Zacharias [2197], and [2532] marvelled [2296] (5707) that [1722] he [846] tarried so long [5549] (5721) in [1722] the temple [3485].
22 And [1161] when he came out [1831] (5631), he could [1410] (5711) not [3756] speak [2980] (5658) unto them [846]: and [2532] they perceived [1921] (5627) that [3754] he had seen [3708] (5758) a vision [3701] in [1722] the temple [3485]: for [2532] he [846] beckoned [2258] (5713) [1269] (5723) unto them [846], and [2532] remained [1265] (5707) speechless [2974].
23 And [2532] it came to pass [1096] (5633), that, as soon as [5613] the days [2250] of his [846] ministration [3009] were accomplished [4130] (5681), he departed [565] (5627) to [1519] his own [846] house [3624].
24 And [1161] after [3326] those [5025] days [2250] his [846] wife [1135] Elisabeth [1665] conceived [4815] (5627), and [2532] hid [4032] (5707) herself [1438] five [4002] months [3376], saying [3004] (5723),
25 [3754] Thus [3779] hath [4160] [0] the Lord [2962] dealt [4160] (5758) with me [3427] in [1722] the days [2250] wherein [3739] he looked on [1896] (5627) [me], to take away [851] (5629) my [3450] reproach [3681] among [1722] men [444].
26 And [1161] in [1722] the sixth [1623] month [3376] the angel [32] Gabriel [1043] was sent [649] (5648) from [5259] God [2316] unto [1519] a city [4172] of Galilee [1056], named [3739] [3686] Nazareth [3478],
27 To a [4314] virgin [3933] espoused to a [3423] man [435] whose [3739] name was [3686] Joseph, [2501] of the [1537] house of [3624] David; [1138] and the [2532] virgin's [3933] name was [3686] Mary. [3137]
28 And [2532] the angel [32] came in [1525] (5631) unto [4314] her [846], and said [2036] (5627), Hail [5463] (5720), [thou that art] highly favoured [5487] (5772), the Lord [2962] [is] with [3326] thee [4675]: blessed [2127] (5772) [art] thou [4771] among [1722] women [1135].
29 And [1161] when she saw [1492] (5631) [him], she was troubled [1298] (5681) at [1909] his [846] saying [3056], and [2532] cast in her mind [1260] (5711) what manner [4217] of salutation [783] this [3778] should be [1498] (5751).
30 And [2532] the angel [32] said [2036] (5627) unto her [846], Fear [5399] (5732) (5737) not [3361], Mary [3137]: for [1063] thou hast found [2147] (5627) favour [5485] with [3844] God [2316].
31 And [2532], behold [2400] (5628), thou shalt conceive [4815] (5695) in [1722] thy womb [1064], and [2532] bring forth [5088] (5695) a son [5207], and [2532] shalt call [2564] (5692) his [846] name [3686] JESUS [2424].
32 He [3778] shall be [2071] (5704) great [3173], and [2532] shall be called [2564] (5701) the Son [5207] of the Highest [5310]: and [2532] the Lord [2962] God [2316] shall give [1325] (5692) unto him [846] the throne [2362] of his [846] father [3962] David [1138]:
33 And [2532] he shall reign [936] (5692) over [1909] the house [3624] of Jacob [2384] for [1519] ever [165]; and [2532] of his [846] kingdom [932] there shall be [2071] (5704) no [3756] end [5056].
34 Then [1161] said [2036] (5627) Mary [3137] unto [4314] the angel [32], How [4459] shall [2071] [0] this [5124] be [2071] (5704), seeing [1893] I know [1097] (5719) not [3756] a man [435]?
35 And [2532] the angel [32] answered [611] (5679) and said [2036] (5627) unto her [846], The Holy [40] Ghost [4151] shall come [1904] (5695) upon [1909] thee [4571], and [2532] the power [1411] of the Highest [5310] shall overshadow [1982] (5692) thee [4671]: therefore [1352] also [2532] that holy thing [40] which shall be born [1080] (5746) of [1537] thee [4675] shall be called [2564] (5701) the Son [5207] of God [2316].
36 And [2532], behold [2400] (5628), thy [4675] cousin [4773] Elisabeth [1665], she [846] hath [4815] [0] also [2532] conceived [4815] (5761) a son [5207] in [1722] her [846] old age [1094]: and [2532] this [3778] is [2076] (5748) the sixth [1623] month [3376] with her [846], who [3588] was called [2564] (5746) barren [4723].
37 For [3754] with [3844] God [2316] nothing [3756] [3956] [4487] shall be impossible [101] (5692).
38 And [1161] Mary [3137] said [2036] (5627), Behold [2400] (5628) the handmaid [1399] of the Lord [2962]; be it [1096] (5636) unto me [3427] according [2596] to thy [4675] word [4487]. And [2532] the angel [32] departed [565] (5627) from [575] her [846].
39 And [1161] Mary [3137] arose [450] (5631) in [1722] those [5025] days [2250], and went [4198] (5675) into [1519] the hill country [3714] with [3326] haste [4710], into [1519] a city [4172] of Juda [2448];
40 And [2532] entered [1525] (5627) into [1519] the house [3624] of Zacharias [2197], and [2532] saluted [782] (5662) Elisabeth [1665].
41 And [2532] it came to pass [1096] (5633), that, when [5613] Elisabeth [1665] heard [191] (5656) the salutation [783] of Mary [3137], the babe [1025] leaped [4640] (5656) in [1722] her [846] womb [2836]; and [2532] Elisabeth [1665] was filled [4130] (5681) with the Holy [40] Ghost [4151]:
42 And [2532] she spake out [400] (5656) with a loud [3173] voice [5456], and [2532] said [2036] (5627), Blessed [2127] (5772) [art] thou [4771] among [1722] women [1135], and [2532] blessed [2127] (5772) [is] the fruit [2590] of thy [4675] womb [2836].
43 And [2532] whence [4159] [is] this [5124] to me [3427], that [2443] the mother [3384] of my [3450] Lord [2962] should come [2064] (5632) to [4314] me [3165]?
44 For [1063], lo [2400] (5628), as soon as [5613] the voice [5456] of thy [4675] salutation [783] sounded [1096] (5633) in [1519] mine [3450] ears [3775], the babe [1025] leaped [4640] (5656) in [1722] my [3450] womb [2836] for [1722] joy [20].
45 And [2532] blessed [3107] [is] she that believed [4100] (5660): for [3754] there shall be [2071] (5704) a performance [5050] of those things which were told [2980] (5772) her [846] from [3844] the Lord [2962].
46 And [2532] Mary [3137] said [2036] (5627), My [3450] soul [5590] doth magnify [3170] (5719) the Lord [2962],
47 And [2532] my [3450] spirit [4151] hath rejoiced [21] (5656) in [1909] God [2316] my [3450] Saviour [4990].
48 For [3754] he hath regarded [1914] (5656) [1909] the low estate [5014] of his [846] handmaiden [1399]: for [1063], behold [2400] (5628), from [575] henceforth [3568] all [3956] generations [1074] shall call [3106] [0] me [3165] blessed [3106] (5692).
49 For [3754] he that is mighty [1415] hath done [4160] (5656) to me [3427] great things [3167]; and [2532] holy [40] [is] his [846] name [3686].
50 And [2532] his [846] mercy [1656] [is] on them that fear [5399] (5740) him [846] from [1519] generation [1074] to generation [1074].
51 He hath shewed [4160] (5656) strength [2904] with [1722] his [846] arm [1023]; he hath scattered [1287] (5656) the proud [5244] in the imagination [1271] of their [846] hearts [2588].
52 He hath put down [2507] (5627) the mighty [1413] from [575] [their] seats [2362], and [2532] exalted [5312] (5656) them of low degree [5011].
53 He hath filled [1705] (5656) the hungry [3983] (5723) with good things [18]; and [2532] the rich [4147] (5723) he hath sent [1821] [0] empty [2756] away [1821] (5656).
54 He hath holpen [482] (5633) his [846] servant [3816] Israel [2474], in remembrance [3415] (5683) of [his] mercy [1656];
55 As [2531] he spake [2980] (5656) to [4314] our [2257] fathers [3962], to Abraham [11], and [2532] to his [846] seed [4690] for [1519] ever [165].
56 And [1161] Mary [3137] abode [3306] (5656) with [4862] her [846] about [5616] three [5140] months [3376], and [2532] returned [5290] (5656) to [1519] her own [846] house [3624].
57 Now [1161] Elisabeth's [1665] full [4130] time [5550] came that [4130] she should be [846] delivered; [5088] and she brought [2532] forth a [1080] son. [5207]
58 And [2532] her neighbours [4040] and [2532] her [846] cousins [4773] heard [191] (5656) how [3754] the Lord [2962] had shewed great [3170] (5707) mercy [1656] [846] upon [3326] her [846]; and [2532] they rejoiced [4796] (5707) with her [846].
59 And [2532] it came to pass [1096] (5633), that on [1722] the eighth [3590] day [2250] they came [2064] (5627) to circumcise [4059] (5629) the child [3813]; and [2532] they called [2564] (5707) him [846] Zacharias [2197], after [1909] the name [3686] of his [846] father [3962].
60 And [2532] his [846] mother [3384] answered [611] (5679) and said [2036] (5627), Not [3780] [so]; but [235] he shall be called [2564] (5701) John [2491].
61 And [2532] they said [2036] (5627) unto [4314] her [846], [3754] There is [2076] (5748) none [3762] of [1722] thy [4675] kindred [4772] that [3739] is called [2564] (5743) by this [5129] name [3686].
62 And [1161] they made signs [1770] (5707) to his [846] father [3962], how [5101] [302] he would have [2309] (5722) him [846] called [2564] (5745).
63 And [2532] he asked for [154] (5660) a writing table [4093], and wrote [1125] (5656), saying [3004] (5723), His [846] name [3686] is [2076] (5748) John [2491]. And [2532] they marvelled [2296] (5656) all [3956].
64 And [1161] his [846] mouth [4750] was opened [455] (5681) immediately [3916], and [2532] his [846] tongue [1100] [loosed], and [2532] he spake [2980] (5707), and praised [2127] (5723) God [2316].
65 And [2532] fear [5401] came [1096] (5633) on [1909] all [3956] that dwelt round about [4039] (5723) them [846]: and [2532] all [3956] these [5023] sayings [4487] were noised abroad [1255] (5712) throughout [1722] all [3650] the hill country [3714] of Judaea [2449].
66 And [2532] all [3956] they that heard [191] (5660) [them] laid [them] up [5087] (5639) in [1722] their [846] hearts [2588], saying [3004] (5723), What [5101] manner [686] of child [3813] shall [2071] [0] this [5124] be [2071] (5704)! And [2532] the hand [5495] of the Lord [2962] was [2258] (5713) with [3326] him [846].
67 And [2532] his [846] father [3962] Zacharias [2197] was filled [4130] (5681) with the Holy [40] Ghost [4151], and [2532] prophesied [4395] (5656), saying [3004] (5723),
68 Blessed [2128] [be] the Lord [2962] God [2316] of Israel [2474]; for [3754] he hath visited [1980] (5662) and [2532] redeemed [3085] his [846] people [2992] [4160] (5656),
69 And [2532] hath raised up [1453] (5656) an horn [2768] of salvation [4991] for us [2254] in [1722] the house [3624] of his [846] servant [3816] David [1138];
70 As [2531] he spake [2980] (5656) by [1223] the mouth [4750] of his [846] holy [40] prophets [4396], which [3588] have been since [575] the world began [165]:
71 That we should be saved [4991] from [1537] our [2257] enemies [2190], and [2532] from [1537] the hand [5495] of all [3956] that hate [3404] (5723) us [2248];
72 To perform [4160] (5658) the mercy [1656] [promised] to [3326] our [2257] fathers [3962], and [2532] to remember [3415] (5683) his [846] holy [40] covenant [1242];
73 The oath [3727] which [3739] he sware [3660] (5656) to [4314] our [2257] father [3962] Abraham [11],
74 That he would grant [1325] (5629) unto us [2254], that we being delivered [4506] (5685) out of [1537] the hand [5495] of our [2257] enemies [2190] might serve [3000] (5721) him [846] without fear [870],
75 In [1722] holiness [3742] and [2532] righteousness [1343] before [1799] him [846], all [3956] the days [2250] of our [2257] life [2222].
76 And [2532] thou [4771], child [3813], shalt be called [2564] (5701) the prophet [4396] of the Highest [5310]: for [1063] thou shalt go [4313] (5695) before [4253] the face [4383] of the Lord [2962] to prepare [2090] (5658) his [846] ways [3598];
77 To give [1325] (5629) knowledge [1108] of salvation [4991] unto his [846] people [2992] by [1722] the remission [859] of their [846] sins [266],
78 Through [1223] the tender [4698] mercy [1656] of our [2257] God [2316]; whereby [1722] [3739] the dayspring [395] from [1537] on high [5311] hath visited [1980] (5662) us [2248],
79 To give light [2014] (5658) to them that sit [2521] (5740) in [1722] darkness [4655] and [2532] [in] the shadow [4639] of death [2288], to guide [2720] (5658) our [2257] feet [4228] into [1519] the way [3598] of peace [1515].
80 And [1161] the child [3813] grew [837] (5707), and [2532] waxed strong [2901] (5712) in spirit [4151], and [2532] was [2258] (5713) in [1722] the deserts [2048] till [2193] the day [2250] of his [846] shewing [323] unto [4314] Israel [2474].
