1 G1895 Seeing that G4183 many G2021 attempted G392 to arrange G1335 a narrative G4012 concerning G3588 the G4135 [2having a full assurance G1722 3among G1473 4us G4229 1things],
2 G2531 as G3860 was delivered up G1473 to us G3588 by the ones G575 from G746 the beginning G845 [2eyewitnesses G2532 3and G5257 4assistants G1096 1having been] G3588 of the G3056 word,
3 G1380 it seemed good G2504 that I also, G3877 having followed closely G509 from the beginning G3956 in all things G199 exactly, G2517 [2in order G1473 1write to you], G1125 G2903 most excellent G* Theophilus,
4 G2443 that G1921 you should realize G4012 concerning G3739 [3of which G2727 5you were instructed G3056 4matters G3588 1the G803 2certainty].
5 G1096 It came to pass G1722 in G3588 the G2250 days G* of Herod G3588 the G935 king G3588 G* of Judea, G2409 with a certain priest, G5100 G3686 by name G* Zacharias, G1537 of G2183 the daily rotations G* of Abia; G2532 and G3588 G1135 his wife G1473 G1537 of G3588 the G2364 daughters G* of Aaron, G2532 and G3588 G3686 her name G1473 G* was Elizabeth.
6 G1510.7.6 And they were G1161 G1342 [2righteous G297 1both] G1799 before G3588 G2316 God, G4198 going G1722 in G3956 all G3588 the G1785 commandments G2532 and G1345 ordinances G3588 of the G2962 Lord G273 blameless.
7 G2532 And G3756 there was no G1510.7.3 G1473 child to them, G5043 G2530 in so far as G3588 G* Elizabeth G1510.7.3 was G4723 sterile, G2532 and G297 both G4260 [2advancing G1722 3in G3588 G2250 4their days G1473 G1510.7.6 1were].
8 G1096 And it came to pass G1161 G1722 in G3588 G2407 his officiating as priest G1473 G1722 in G3588 the G5010 order G3588 G2183 of his daily rotations G1473 G1725 before G3588 G2316 God,
9 G2596 according to G3588 the G1485 custom G3588 of the G2405 priesthood, G2975 he obtained by lot G3588 G2370 to burn incense G1525 when entering G1519 into G3588 the G3485 temple G3588 of the G2962 Lord.
10 G2532 And G3956 all G3588 the G4128 multitude G3588 of the G2992 people G1510.7.3 were G4336 praying G1854 outside G3588 at the G5610 hour G3588 G2368 of incense.
11 G3708 And there appeared G1161 G1473 to him G32 an angel G2962 of the Lord G2476 standing G1537 at G1188 the right G3588 of the G2379 altar G3588 G2368 of incense.
12 G2532 And G5015 Zacharias was disturbed G* G1492 seeing him, G2532 and G5401 fear G1968 fell G1909 upon G1473 him.
13 G2036 [4said G1161 1And G4314 5to G1473 6him G3588 2the G32 3angel], G3361 Fear not, G5399 G* Zacharias! G1360 because G1522 [2was heard G3588 G1162 1your supplication], G1473 G2532 and G3588 G1135 your wife G1473 G* Elizabeth G1080 shall bear G5207 a son G1473 to you, G2532 and G2564 you shall call G3588 G3686 his name G1473 G* John.
14 G2532 And G1510.8.3 he will be G5479 a joy G1473 to you G2532 and G20 exultation; G2532 and G4183 many G1909 [2at G3588 G1083 3his nativity G1473 G5463 1shall rejoice].
15 G1510.8.3 For he will be G1063 G3173 great G1799 before G3588 the G2962 Lord, G2532 and G3631 wine G2532 and G4608 liquor G3766.2 in no way G4095 shall he drink; G2532 and G4151 [3spirit G39 2of holy G4130 1he shall be filled] G2089 still G1537 from G2836 [2belly G3384 1his mother's]. G1473
16 G2532 And G4183 [2many G3588 3of the G5207 4sons G* 5of Israel G1994 1he will turn] G2089 to G2962 the Lord G3588 G2316 their God. G1473
17 G2532 And G1473 he G4281 shall go forth G1799 before G1473 him G1722 in G4151 spirit G2532 and G1411 power G* of Elijah, G1994 to turn G2588 hearts G3962 of fathers G1909 unto G5043 children, G2532 and G545 ones resisting persuasion G1722 to G5428 the intelligence G1342 of the righteous; G2090 to prepare G2962 for the Lord G2992 a people G2680 being carefully prepared.
18 G2532 And G2036 Zacharias said G* G4314 to G3588 the G32 angel, G2596 By G5100 what thing G1097 shall I know G3778 this, G1473 for I G1063 G1510.2.1 am G4246 an old man, G2532 and G3588 G1135 my wife G1473 G4260 is advanced G1722 in G3588 G2250 her days? G1473
19 G2532 And G611 answering G3588 the G32 angel G2036 said G1473 to him, G1473 I G1510.2.1 am G* Gabriel, G3588 the one G3936 standing G1799 in the presence G3588 G2316 of God, G2532 and G649 I was sent G2980 to speak G4314 to G1473 you, G2532 and G2097 to announce good news G1473 to you G3778 of these things .
20 G2532 And G2400 behold, G1510.8.2 you will be G4623 kept silent, G2532 and G3361 not G1410 being able G2980 to speak G891 till G3739 of which G2250 day G1096 these things take place, G3778 G446.2 because G3756 you believed not G4100 G3588 G3056 my words, G1473 G3748 the ones which G4137 shall be fulfilled G1519 in G3588 G2540 their time. G1473
21 G2532 And G1510.7.3 [3 were G3588 1the G2992 2people] G4328 expecting G3588 G* Zacharias, G2532 and G2296 they wondered G1722 at G3588 G5549 his passing time G1473 G1722 in G3588 the G3485 temple.
22 G1831 And having come forth, G1161 G3756 he was not able G1410 G2980 to speak G1473 to them. G2532 And G1921 they realized G3754 that G3701 [2an apparition G3708 1he has seen] G1722 in G3588 the G3485 temple. G2532 And G1473 he G1510.7.3 was G1269 signifying with his head G1473 to them, G2532 and G1265 he remained G2974 mute.
23 G2532 And G1096 it came to pass G5613 as G4130 [3were filled G3588 1the G2250 2days] G3588 G3009 of his ministration, G1473 G565 he went forth G1519 unto G3588 G3624 his house. G1473
24 G3326 And after G1161 G3778 these G3588 G2250 days G4815 [3conceived G* 1Elizabeth G3588 G1135 2his wife], G1473 G2532 and G4032 she covered round about and concealed G1438 herself G3376 [2months G4002 1five], G3004 saying G3754 that,
25 G3779 Thus G1473 [3has done to me G4160 G3588 1the G2962 2Lord] G1722 in G2250 the days G3739 in which G1896 he looked upon G851 to remove G3588 G3681 my scorn G1473 G1722 among G444 men.
26 G1722 And in G1161 G3588 the G3376 [2month G3588 G1622 1sixth G649 6was sent G3588 3the G32 4angel G* 5Gabriel] G5259 by G3588 G2316 God G1519 unto G4172 a city G3588 G* of Galilee, G3588 with the G3686 name G* Nazareth,
27 G4314 to G3933 a virgin G3423 being espoused G435 to a man G3739 whose G3686 name G* was Joseph, G1537 from G3624 the house G* of David; G2532 and G3588 the G3686 name G3588 of the G3933 virgin G* was Mary.
28 G2532 And G1525 [3entering G3588 1the G32 2angel] G4314 to G1473 her, G2036 said, G5463 Hail! G5487 one being shown favor. G3588 The G2962 Lord G3326 is with G1473 you, G2127 O you being blessed G1473 G1722 among G1135 women.
29 G3588 G1161 And she, G1492 seeing, G1298 was disturbed G1909 over G3588 G3056 his word, G1473 G2532 and G1260 reasoned G4217 what G1510.4 [2may be G3588 G783 1this greeting]. G3778
30 G2532 And G2036 [3said G3588 1the G32 2angel] G1473 to her, G3361 Fear not G5399 G* Mary! G2147 for you found G1063 G5484 favor G3844 with G3588 G2316 God.
31 G2532 And G2400 behold, G4815 you shall conceive G1722 in G1064 the womb, G2532 and G5088 you shall give birth to G5207 a son, G2532 and G2564 you shall call G3588 G3686 his name G1473 G* Jesus.
32 G3778 This one G1510.8.3 will be G3173 great, G2532 and G5207 [2son G5310 3of highest G2564 1he will be called]; G2532 and G1325 [3shall give G1473 4to him G2962 1 the Lord G3588 G2316 2God] G3588 the G2362 throne G* of David G3588 G3962 his father. G1473
33 G2532 And G936 he shall reign G1909 over G3588 the G3624 house G* of Jacob G1519 into G3588 the G165 eons, G2532 and G3588 G932 of his kingdom G1473 G3756 there shall not be G1510.8.3 G5056 an end.
34 G2036 [3said G1161 1And G* 2Mary] G4314 to G3588 the G32 angel, G4459 How G1510.8.3 will this be, G3778 G1893 since G435 [2a husband G3756 1I know not]? G1097
35 G2532 And G611 answering G3588 the G32 angel G2036 said G1473 to her, G4151 [2spirit G39 1Holy] G1904 shall come G1909 upon G1473 you, G2532 and G1411 power G5310 of the highest G1982 shall overshadow G1473 you; G1352 therefore G2532 also G3588 the one G1080 being born G1537 of G1473 you G39 holy, G2564 shall be called G5207 Son G2316 of God.
36 G2532 And G2400 behold, G* Elizabeth G3588 G4773 your relative, G1473 G2532 even G1473 she G4815 is having conceived G5207 a son G1722 in G1094 her old age, G1473 G2532 and G3778 this one G3376 [6month G1622 5sixth G1510.2.3 3is G1473 4in her G3588 G2564 1being called G4723 2sterile].
37 G3754 For G3756 not G101 shall [3be impossible G3844 4with G3588 G2316 5God G3956 1any G4487 2thing].
38 G2036 [3said G1161 1And G* 2Mary], G2400 Behold, G3588 the G1399 maidservant G2962 of the Lord; G1096 may it be G1473 to me G2596 according to G3588 G4487 your word. G1473 G2532 And G565 [3went forth G575 4from G1473 5her G3588 1the G32 2angel].
39 G450 [3rising up G1161 1And G* 2Mary] G1722 in G3588 G2250 these days, G3778 G4198 went G1519 into G3588 the G3714 mountainous area G3326 with G4710 haste, G1519 unto G4172 a city G* of Judah.
40 G2532 And G1525 she entered G1519 into G3588 the G3624 house G* of Zacharias, G2532 and G782 she greeted G3588 G* Elizabeth.
41 G2532 And G1096 it came to pass G5613 as G191 Elizabeth heard G3588 G* G3588 the G783 greeting G3588 G* of Mary, G4640 [3leaped G3588 1the G1025 2babe] G1722 in G3588 G2836 her belly. G1473 G2532 And G4130 [2was filled G4151 4spirit G39 3of holy G3588 G* 1Elizabeth].
42 G2532 And G400 she sounded out loud G5456 [2voice G3173 1 with a great] G2532 and G2036 said, G2127 O you being blessed G1473 G1722 among G1135 women, G2532 and G2127 being blessed G3588 is the G2590 fruit G3588 G2836 of your belly. G1473
43 G2532 And G4159 from where G1473 is this to me, G3778 G2443 that G2064 [4should come G3588 1the G3384 2mother G3588 G2962 3of my Lord] G4314 to G1473 me?
44 G2400 For behold, G1063 G5613 as G1096 [4took place G3588 1the G5456 2sound G3588 G783 3of your greeting] G1473 G1519 in G3588 G3775 my ears, G1473 G4640 [3leaped G1722 4in G20 5exultation G3588 1the G1025 2babe] G1722 in G3588 G2836 my belly. G1473
45 G2532 And G3107 blessed is G3588 the one G4100 believing, G3754 for G1510.8.3 there will be G5050 a perfection G3588 to the things G2980 spoken G1473 to her G3844 by G2962 the Lord.
46 G2532 And G2036 Mary said, G* G3170 [3magnifies G3588 G5590 2soul G1473 1My] G3588 the G2962 Lord,
47 G2532 and G21 [2exults G3588 G4151 1my spirit] G1473 G1909 over G3588 G2316 God G3588 G4990 my deliverer. G1473
48 G3754 For G1914 he looked G1909 upon G3588 the G5014 low estate G3588 G1399 of his maidservant. G1473 G2400 For behold, G575 from G3588 the G3568 present G3106 [3shall declare me blessed G1473 G3956 1all G3588 G1074 2generations].
49 G3754 For G4160 [3did G1473 4a magnificent thing to me G3167 G3588 1the G1415 2mighty one], G2532 and G39 holy G3588 G3686 is his name. G1473
50 G2532 And G3588 G1656 his mercy G1473 G1519 is for G1074 generations G1074 of generations G3588 to the ones G5399 fearing G1473 him.
51 G4160 He executed G2904 might G1722 with G1023 his arm; G1473 G1287 he dispersed G5244 proud ones -- G1271 the thought G2588 of their hearts. G1473
52 G2507 He demolished G1413 mighty ones G575 from G2362 thrones, G2532 and G5312 raised up high G5011 humble ones.
53 G3983 [2ones being hungry G1705 1He filled up] G18 of good things, G2532 and G4147 ones being rich G1821 he sent out G2756 empty.
54 G482 He took hold of G* Israel G3816 his servant, G1473 G3403 [2to be remembered G1656 1for mercy],
55 G2531 (as G2980 he said G4314 to G3588 G3962 our fathers, G1473 G3588 to G* Abraham G2532 and G3588 to G4690 his seed), G1473 G1519 into G3588 the G165 eon.
56 G3306 [3abided G1161 1And G* 2Mary] G4862 with G1473 her G5616 about G3376 [2months G5140 1three]; G2532 and G5290 she returned G1519 unto G3588 G3624 her house. G1473
57 G3588 G1161 And G* Elizabeth G4130 fulfilled G3588 the G5550 time G3588 of G5088 her giving birth; G1473 G2532 and G1080 she bore G5207 a son.
58 G2532 And G191 [3heard G3588 1the ones G4040 2adjacent], G2532 and G3588 G4773 her relatives, G1473 G3754 that G3170 the Lord magnified G2962 G3588 G1656 his mercy G1473 G3326 with G1473 her; G2532 and G4796 they rejoiced along with G1473 her.
59 G2532 And G1096 it came to pass G1722 in G3588 the G3590 eighth G2250 day, G2064 they came G4059 to circumcise G3588 the G3813 child; G2532 and G2564 they called G1473 it G1909 after G3588 the G3686 name G3588 G3962 of his father G1473 G* Zacharias.
60 G2532 And G611 answering G3588 G3384 his mother G1473 G2036 said, G3780 No, G235 but G2564 he shall be called G* John.
61 G2532 And G2036 they said G4314 to G1473 her G3754 that, G3762 No one G1510.2.3 is G1722 among G3588 G4772 your kin G1473 G3739 who G2564 is called G3588 by G3686 this name. G3778
62 G1770 And they beckoned G1161 G3588 to G3962 his father, G1473 G3588 for the name G5100 that G302 he might G2309 want G2564 to call G1473 him.
63 G2532 And G154 asking G4093 for a writing tablet, G1125 he wrote, G3004 saying, G* John G1510.2.3 is G3588 G3686 his name. G1473 G2532 And G2296 they all marveled. G3956
64 G455 [3was opened G1161 1And G3588 G4750 2his mouth] G3916 immediately, G2532 and G3588 G1100 his tongue, G1473 G2532 and G2980 he spoke G2127 blessing G3588 G2316 God.
65 G2532 And G1096 [2came G1909 3upon G3956 4all G5401 1fear] G3588 the ones G4039 living about G1473 them. G2532 And G1722 in G3650 the entire G3588 G3714 mountainous area G3588 G* of Judea G1255 [3were discussed G3956 1all G3588 G4487 2these matters]. G3778
66 G2532 And G5087 [4placed them G3956 1all G3588 2the ones G191 3having heard] G1722 in G3588 G2588 their heart, G1473 G3004 saying, G5100 What G686 then G3588 G3813 [2this child G3778 G1510.8.3 1will] be? G2532 And G5495 the hand G2962 of the Lord G1510.7.3 was G3326 with G1473 him.
67 G2532 And G* Zacharias G3588 G3962 his father G1473 G4130 was filled G4151 [2spirit G39 1of holy], G2532 and G4395 prophesied, G3004 saying,
68 G2128 Blessed is G2962 the Lord G3588 G2316 God G3588 G* of Israel, G3754 for G1980 he visited G2532 and G4160 made G3085 a ransoming G3588 to G2992 his people; G1473
69 G2532 and G1453 he raised G2768 a horn G4991 of deliverance G1473 to us G1722 by G3588 the G3624 house G* of David G3588 G3816 his servant; G1473
70 G2531 as G2980 he spoke G1223 by G4750 the mouth G3588 of the G39 holy ones, G3588 of the ones G575 from G165 the eon, G4396 his prophets -- G1473
71 G4991 deliverance G1537 from G2190 our enemies, G1473 G2532 and G1537 from G5495 the hand G3956 of all G3588 of the ones G3404 detesting G1473 us;
72 G4160 to do G1656 mercy G3326 with G3588 G3962 our fathers, G1473 G2532 and G3403 to remember G1242 [3covenant G39 2holy G1473 1his];
73 G3727 the oath G3739 which G3660 he swore G4314 to G* Abraham G3588 G3962 our father G1473 G3588 G1325 to grant G1473 to us;
74 G870 [7fearlessly G1537 2from out of G5495 3 the hand G3588 G2190 4of our enemies G1473 G4506 1being rescued G3000 5to serve G1473 6him];
75 G1722 in G3742 sacredness G2532 and G1343 righteousness G1799 before G1473 him G3956 all G3588 the G2250 days G3588 G2222 of our life. G1473
