                            The Birth Of Jesus

                as described in The King James Bible (KJV)
                and The Revised Standard Version (RSV)


        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.

        LUKE 2:1-20 (RSV)
       
       
        1
               In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that
               all the world should be enrolled.
        2
               This was the first enrollment, when Quirin'i-us was
               governor of Syria.
        3
               And all went to be enrolled, each to his own city.
        4
               And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of
               Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called
               Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of
               David,
        5
               to be enrolled with Mary, his betrothed, who was with
               child.
        6
               And while they were there, the time came for her to be
               delivered.
        7
               And she gave birth to her first-born son and wrapped him
               in swaddling cloths, and laid him in a manger, because
               there was no place for them in the inn.
        8
               And in that region there were shepherds out in the field,
               keeping watch over their flock by night.
        9
               And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory
               of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with
               fear.
        10
               And the angel said to them, "Be not afraid; for behold, I
               bring you good news of a great joy which will come to all
               the people;
        11
               for to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior,
               who is Christ the Lord.
        12
               And this will be a sign for you: you will find a babe
               wrapped in swaddling cloths and 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 among men
               with whom he is pleased!"
        15
               When the angels went away from them into heaven, the
               shepherds said to one another, "Let us go over to
               Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the
               Lord has made known to us."
        16
               And they went with haste, and found Mary and Joseph, and
               the babe lying in a manger.
        17
               And when they saw it they made known the saying which had
               been told them concerning this child;
        18
               and all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told
               them.
        19
               But Mary kept all these things, pondering them in her
               heart.
        20
               And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God
               for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them.
