¶Since many have undertaken to set in order a narrative concerning those matters which have been fulfilled among us,---2Lk 1:222Lk 1:2
even as those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and servants of the word delivered them to us,---3Lk 1:333Lk 1:3
it seemed good to me also, having traced the course of all things accurately from the first, to write to you in order, most excellent Theophilus;---4Lk 1:444Lk 1:4
that you might know the certainty concerning the things in which you were instructed.---5Lk 1:555Lk 1:5
¶There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the priestly division of Abijah. He had a wife of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elizabeth.---6Lk 1:666Lk 1:6
They were both righteous before God, walking blamelessly in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord.---7Lk 1:777Lk 1:7
But they had no child, because Elizabeth was barren, and they both were well advanced in years.---8Lk 1:888Lk 1:8
Now it happened, while he executed the priest’s office before God in the order of his division,---9Lk 1:999Lk 1:9
according to the custom of the priest’s office, his lot was to enter into the temple of the Lord and burn incense.---10Lk 1:101010Lk 1:10

Zacharias was troubled when he saw him, and fear fell upon him.---13Lk 1:131313Lk 1:13
But the angel said to him, “Don’t be afraid, Zacharias, because your request has been heard, and your wife, Elizabeth, will bear you a son, and you shall call his name John.---14Lk 1:141414Lk 1:14
You will have joy and gladness; and many will rejoice at his birth.---15Lk 1:151515Lk 1:15
For he will be great in the sight of the Lord, and he will drink no wine nor strong drink. He will be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother’s womb.---16Lk 1:161616Lk 1:16
He will turn many of the children of Israel to the Lord, their God.---17Lk 1:171717Lk 1:17
He will go before him in the spirit and power of Elijah, ‘to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children,’ and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to prepare a people prepared for the Lord.”---18Lk 1:181818Lk 1:18
¶Zacharias said to the angel, “How can I be sure of this? For I am an old man, and my wife is well advanced in years.”---19Lk 1:191919Lk 1:19
¶The angel answered him, “I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God. I was sent to speak to you, and to bring you this good news.---20Lk 1:202020Lk 1:20
Behold, you will be silent and not able to speak, until the day that these things will happen, because you didn’t believe my words, which will be fulfilled in their proper time.”---21Lk 1:212121Lk 1:21

Having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, you highly favored one! The Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women!”---29Lk 1:292929Lk 1:29
¶But when she saw him, she was greatly troubled at the saying, and considered what kind of salutation this might be.---30Lk 1:303030Lk 1:30

and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever. There will be no end to his Kingdom.”---34Lk 1:343434Lk 1:34
¶Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, seeing I am a virgin?”---35Lk 1:353535Lk 1:35
¶The angel answered her, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. Therefore also the holy one who is born from you will be called the Son of God.---36Lk 1:363636Lk 1:36

and entered into the house of Zacharias and greeted Elizabeth.---41Lk 1:414141Lk 1:41
It happened, when Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, that the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.---42Lk 1:424242Lk 1:42
She called out with a loud voice, and said, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb!---43Lk 1:434343Lk 1:43
Why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?---44Lk 1:444444Lk 1:44
For behold, when the voice of your greeting came into my ears, the baby leaped in my womb for joy!---45Lk 1:454545Lk 1:45
