1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar
Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. 2 (And this taxing was first made
when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) 3 And all went to be taxed,
every one into his own city. 4 And Joseph also went up from
Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of
David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house
and lineage of David:) 5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused
wife, being great with child. 6 And so it was, that, while they
were there, the days were accomplished that she should
be delivered. 7 And she brought forth her firstborn son,
and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a
manger; because there was no room for them in the
inn. 8 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 sore afraid. 10
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold,
I bring you good tidings of great joy,
which shall be to all people. 11 For unto
you is born this day in the city of David a
Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. 12
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye
shall find the babe wrapped in
swaddling clothes, lying in
a manger. 13 And suddenly
there was with
the angel a multitude
of the heavenly
host praising

God, and saying,
14 Glory to God
in the highest,
and on earth
p e a c e ,
good will
toward
men.
