Verse Navigation

add

1 Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us,

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

2 Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word;

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

3 It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus,

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

4 That thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

5 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

6 And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

7 And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

8 And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest's office before God in the order of his course,

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

9 According to the custom of the priest's office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

10 And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the time of incense.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

11 And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

12 And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

13 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

15 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

16 And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

18 And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

19 And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

20 And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

21 And the people waited for Zacharias, and marvelled that he tarried so long in the temple.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

22 And when he came out, he could not speak unto them: and they perceived that he had seen a vision in the temple: for he beckoned unto them, and remained speechless.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

23 And it came to pass, that, as soon as the days of his ministration were accomplished, he departed to his own house.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

24 And after those days his wife Elisabeth conceived, and hid herself five months, saying,

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

25 Thus hath the Lord dealt with me in the days wherein he looked on me, to take away my reproach among men.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

36 And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

38 And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

39 And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda;

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

40 And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

42 And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

43 And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

44 For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

45 And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

46 And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

48 For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

49 For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

50 And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

51 He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

52 He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

53 He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

54 He hath holpen his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy;

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

55 As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

56 And Mary abode with her about three months, and returned to her own house.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

57 Now Elisabeth's full time came that she should be delivered; and she brought forth a son.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

58 And her neighbours and her cousins heard how the Lord had shewed great mercy upon her; and they rejoiced with her.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

59 And it came to pass, that on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child; and they called him Zacharias, after the name of his father.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

60 And his mother answered and said, Not so; but he shall be called John.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

61 And they said unto her, There is none of thy kindred that is called by this name.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

62 And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

63 And he asked for a writing table, and wrote, saying, His name is John. And they marvelled all.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

64 And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spake, and praised God.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

65 And fear came on all that dwelt round about them: and all these sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill country of Judaea.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

66 And all they that heard them laid them up in their hearts, saying, What manner of child shall this be! And the hand of the Lord was with him.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

67 And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying,

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

68 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people,

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

69 And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David;

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

70 As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

71 That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us;

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

72 To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant;

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

73 The oath which he sware to our father Abraham,

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

74 That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear,

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

75 In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

76 And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

77 To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins,

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

78 Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us,

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

79 To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

80 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.
