1 G1096 And it came to pass G1161 G1722 in G3588 G2250 those days, G1565 G1831 went forth G1378 a decree G3844 by G* Caesar G* Augustus G583 to register G3956 all G3588 the G3611 habitable world.

8 G2532 And G4166 shepherds G1510.7.6 were G1722 in G3588 the G5561 same place G3588 G1473 G63 living outdoors G2532 and G5442 keeping G5438 watches G3588 at G3571 night G1909 over G3588 G4167 their flock. G1473
9 G2532 And G2400 behold, G32 an angel G2962 of the Lord G2186 stood by G1473 them, G2532 and G1391 glory G2962 of the Lord G4034 shone about G1473 them, G2532 and G5399 they feared G5401 [2fear G3173 1a great].

12 G2532 And G3778 this G1473 [3to you G3588 1 is the G4592 2sign]; G2147 you shall find G1025 the babe G4683 being swaddled, G2749 lying G1722 in G5336 a stable.
13 G2532 And G1810 suddenly G1096 there was G4862 with G3588 the G32 angel G4128 a multitude G4756 [2military G3770 1of heavenly] G134 praising G3588 G2316 God, G2532 and G3004 saying,
14 G1391 Glory G1722 in G5310 the highest G2316 to God, G2532 and G1909 upon G1093 earth G1515 peace, G1722 among G444 men G2107 with benevolence.
15 G2532 And G1096 it came to pass G5613 as G565 [3went forth G575 4from G1473 5them G1519 6into G3588 7the G3772 8heaven G3588 1the G32 2angels], G2532 that G3588 the G444 men, G3588 the G4166 shepherds G2036 said G4314 to G240 one another, G1330 We should go G1211 indeed G2193 unto G* Bethlehem, G2532 and G1492 behold G3588 G4487 this thing G3778 G3588 G1096 taking place, G3739 which G3588 the G2962 Lord G1107 made known G1473 to us.

17 G1492 And beholding, G1161 G1232 they made known G4012 concerning G3588 the G4487 thing G3588 G2980 being spoken G1473 to them G4012 concerning G3588 G3813 this child. G3778
18 G2532 And G3956 all G3588 the ones G191 having heard G2296 wondered G4012 concerning G3588 the things G2980 being spoken G5259 by G3588 the G4166 shepherds G4314 to G1473 them.
19 G3588 G1161 But G* Mary G3956 preserved all G4933 G3588 G4487 these things, G3778 G4820 uniting them G1722 in G3588 G2588 her heart. G1473
20 G2532 And G1994 [3returned G3588 1the G4166 2shepherds], G1392 glorifying G2532 and G134 praising G3588 G2316 God G1909 for G3956 all G3739 which G191 they heard G2532 and G1492 beheld, G2531 as G2980 it was told G4314 to G1473 them.
21 G2532 And G3753 when G4130 [3were fulfilled G2250 2days G3638 1eight] G3588 G4059 to circumcise G3588 the G3813 child, G2532 that G2564 [2was called G3588 G3686 1his name] G1473 G* Jesus, G3588 the one G2564 being called G5259 by G3588 the G32 angel G4253 before G3588 G4815 his being conceived G1722 in G3588 the G2836 belly.

25 G2532 And G2400 behold, G1510.7.3 there was G444 a man G1722 in G* Jerusalem G3739 whose G3686 name G* was Simeon; G2532 and G3588 G444 this man G3778 G1342 was just G2532 and G2126 reverent, G4327 waiting for G3874 the consolation G3588 G* of Israel; G2532 and G4151 [2spirit G39 1holy] G1510.7.3 was G1909 upon G1473 him.
26 G2532 And G1510.7.3 there was G1473 to him G5537 a receiving of a divine message G5259 by G3588 the G4151 [2spirit G3588 G39 1holy] G3361 to not see G1492 G2288 death G4250 before G2228 he should behold G1492 G3588 the G5547 Christ G2962 of the Lord.
27 G2532 And G2064 he came G1722 in G3588 the G4151 spirit G1519 into G3588 the G2413 temple. G2532 And G1722 in G3588 the G1521 bringing G3588 [4by the G1118 5parents G3588 1the G3813 2child G* 3Jesus], G3588 G4160 for them to do G1473 G2596 according to G3588 the thing G1480 accustomed G3588 by the G3551 law G4012 for G1473 him,
28 G2532 that G1473 he G1209 received G1473 it G1519 into G3588 G43 his embrace, G1473 G2532 and G2127 he blessed G3588 G2316 God, G2532 and G2036 said,
29 G3568 Now G630 loosen G3588 G1401 your servant, G1473 G1203 O master, G2596 according to G3588 G4487 your word, G1473 G1722 in G1515 peace.
32 G5457 a light G1519 for G602 an uncovering G1484 of nations, G2532 and G1391 glory G2992 of your people G1473 G* Israel.
33 G2532 And G1510.7.3 [2was G* 1Joseph G2532 4and G3588 G3384 5his mother G1473 G2296 3marveling] G1909 over G3588 the things G2980 being spoken G4012 concerning G1473 him.
34 G2532 And G2127 [2blessed G1473 3them G* 1Simeon], G2532 and G2036 said G4314 to G* Mary G3588 G3384 his mother, G1473 G2400 Behold, G3778 this one G2749 is situated G1519 for G4431 a downfall G2532 and G386 a rising up G4183 of many G1722 in G3588 G* Israel, G2532 and G1519 for G4592 a sign G483 being disputed;
35 G2532 ( [2even G1473 3you G1161 1and], G1473 [3your G3588 G5590 4soul G1330 2shall go through G4501 1a broadsword],) G3704 so that G302 [4should be G601 5uncovered G1537 G4183 2of many G2588 3hearts G1261 1 the thoughts].
36 G2532 And G1510.7.3 there was G* Anna G4398 a prophetess, G2364 daughter G* of Phanuel G1537 of G5443 the tribe G* of Asher; G3778 she G4260 was advanced G1722 in G2250 [2days G4183 1many], G2198 having lived G2094 [2years G3326 3with G435 4a husband G2033 1seven] G575 from G3588 G3932 her virginity, G1473
37 G2532 and G3778 she G5503 was a widow G5613 about G2094 [2years G3589.3 1eighty-four], G3739 who G3756 did not G868 leave G575 from G3588 the G2413 temple; G3521 with fastings G2532 and G1162 supplications G3000 serving G3571 night G2532 and G2250 day.
38 G2532 And G3778 she, G1473 the same G3588 G5610 hour G2186 standing by, G437 confessed G3588 to the G2962 Lord, G2532 and G2980 spoke G4012 concerning G1473 him G3956 to all G3588 the ones G4327 waiting for G3085 a ransoming G1722 in G* Jerusalem.
39 G2532 And G5613 as G5055 they finished G537 all together G3588 the things G2596 according to G3588 the G3551 law G2962 of the Lord, G5290 they returned G1519 unto G3588 G* Galilee, G1519 unto G3588 G4172 their own city G1438 G* Nazareth.
40 G3588 And the G1161 G3813 child G837 grew G2532 and G2901 was fortified G4151 in spirit, G4137 being filled G4678 with wisdom; G2532 and G5484 favor G2316 of God G1510.7.3 was G1909 upon G1473 it.
41 G2532 And G4198 [2went G3588 G1118 1his parents] G2596 each G2094 year G1519 unto G* Jerusalem G3588 to the G1859 holiday G3588 of the G3957 passover.
42 G2532 And G3753 when G1096 he was G2094 [2years old G1427 1twelve], G305 of their ascending G1473 G1519 unto G* Jerusalem G2596 according to G3588 the G1485 custom G3588 of the G1859 holiday,

44 G3543 But thinking G1161 G1473 him G1722 [2in G3588 3the G4923 4group G1510.1 1to be], G2064 they came G2250 a day's G3598 journey; G2532 and G327 they searched him out G1473 G1722 among G3588 the G4773 relatives G2532 and G1722 among G3588 the G1110 acquaintances.
45 G2532 And G3361 not G2147 finding G1473 him, G5290 they returned G1519 unto G* Jerusalem G2212 seeking G1473 him.
46 G2532 And G1096 it came to pass G3326 after G2250 [2days G5140 1three] G2147 they found G1473 him G1722 in G3588 the G2413 temple, G2516 sitting G1722 in G3319 the midst G3588 of the G1320 teachers, G2532 both G191 hearing G1473 them, G2532 and G1905 questioning G1473 them.
47 G1839 [6were amazed G1161 1And G3956 2all G3588 3the ones G191 4hearing G1473 5him] G1909 by G3588 the G4907 understanding G2532 and G3588 G612 his answers. G1473
48 G2532 And G1492 seeing G1473 him, G1605 they were overwhelmed. G2532 And G4314 [3to G1473 4him G3588 G3384 1his mother G1473 G2036 2said], G5043 Child, G5100 why G4160 did you G1473 so to us? G3779 G2400 Behold, G3588 G3962 your father G1473 G2504 and I G3600 were grieving G2212 seeking G1473 you.
49 G2532 And G2036 he said G4314 to G1473 them, G5100 Why is it G3754 that G2212 you seek G1473 me, G3756 do you not G1492 know G3754 that G1722 [3among G3588 4the things G3588 G3962 5of my father G1473 G1163 1it is necessary G1510.1 2for me to be]? G1473
50 G2532 And G1473 they G3756 did not G4920 perceive G3588 the G4487 saying G3739 which G2980 he spoke G1473 to them.
51 G2532 And G2597 he went down G3326 with G1473 them G2532 and G2064 came G1519 into G* Nazareth, G2532 and G1510.7.3 he was G5293 being submitted G1473 to them. G2532 And G3588 G3384 his mother G1473 G1301 kept carefully G3956 all G3588 G4487 these sayings G3778 G1722 in G3588 G2588 her heart. G1473
