Jesus’ Birth Foretold

26 Now in the sixth month the angel aGabriel was sent from God to a city in Galilee called bNazareth, 27 to aa virgin 1engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, bof the 2descendants of David; and the virgin’s name was 3Mary. 28 And coming in, he said to her, “Greetings, 1favored one! The Lord 2is with you.” 29 But she awas very perplexed at this statement, and kept pondering what kind of salutation this was. 30 The angel said to her, “aDo not be afraid, Mary; for you have found favor with God. 31 “And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you ashall name Him Jesus. 32 “He will be great and will be called the Son of athe Most High; and the Lord God will give Him bthe throne of His father David; 33 aand He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, band His kingdom will have no end.” 34 Mary said to the angel, “How 1can this be, since I 2am a virgin?” 35 The angel answered and said to her, “aThe Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of bthe Most High will overshadow you; and for that reason cthe 1holy Child shall be called dthe Son of God. 36 “And behold, even your relative Elizabeth has also conceived a son in her old age; and 1she who was called barren is now in her sixth month. 37 “For 1anothing will be impossible with God.” 38 And 1Mary said, “Behold, the 2bondslave of the Lord; may it be done to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.
