        LUKE 2:1-20 (KJV)
       
        1
               And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a
               decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be
               taxed.
        2
               (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor
               of Syria.)
        3
               And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
        4
               And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of
               Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is
               called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage
               of David:)
        5
               To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with
               child.
        6
               And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were
               accomplished that she should be delivered.
        7
               And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him
               in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because
               there was no room for them in the inn.
        8
               And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in
               the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
        9
               And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the
               glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were
               sore afraid.
        10
               And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I
               bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all
               people.
        11
               For unto you is born this day in the city of David a
               Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
        12
               And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe
               wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
        13
               And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the
               heavenly host praising God, and saying,
        14
               Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will
               toward men.
        15
               And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from
               them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let
               us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is
               come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
        16
               And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and
               the babe lying in a manger.
        17
               And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the
               saying which was told them concerning this child.
        18
               And all they that heard it wondered at those things which
               were told them by the shepherds.
        19
               But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her
               heart.
        20
               And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God
               for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was
               told unto them.
