42-1:2††††† Euen as they deliuered them vnto vs, which from the begynnyng sawe them them selues with their eyes, and were ministers of the worde:

42-1:3††††† I determined also, assoone as I had searched out diligently all thinges from the begynnyng, that then I woulde write vnto thee, moste excellent Theophilus.

42-1:4††††† That thou myghtest knowe the certentie of those thinges wherof thou hast ben infourmed.

42-1:5††††† There was in the dayes of Herode the kyng of Iurie, a certaine priest, named Zacharias, of the course of Abia, & his wyfe was of the daughters of Aaron, & her name was Elizabeth.

42-1:6††††† They were both ryghteous before God, and walked in all the lawes and ordinaunces of the Lorde, that no man coulde fynde fault with them.

42-1:13†††† But the Angel sayde vnto him: Feare not Zacharie, for thy prayer is hearde: and thy wyfe Elizabeth shall beare thee a sonne, & thou shalt cal his name Iohn.

42-1:14†††† And thou shalt haue ioy and gladnesse, and many shall reioyce at his birth.

42-1:15†††† For he shalbe great in the syght of the Lorde, and shall neither drynke wine nor strong drynke: and he shalbe fylled with the holy ghost, euen from his mothers wombe.

42-1:16†††† And many of the chyldren of Israel, shall he turne to their Lorde God.

42-1:17†††† And he shall go before hym, with the spirite and power of Elias, to turne the heartes of the fathers to the chyldren, and the disobedient to the wisedome of the iust men, to make redy a perfect people for the Lorde.

42-1:19†††† And the Angel aunswered, and sayde vnto hym: I am Gabriel that stande in the presence of God, and am sent to speake vnto thee, and to shewe thee these glad tydynges.

42-1:24†††† And after those dayes, his wyfe Elizabeth conceaued, and hyd her selfe fiue monethes, saying:

42-1:25†††† Thus hath the Lorde dealt with me, in the dayes wherein he loked on me, to take fro me my rebuke among men.

42-1:34†††† Then said Marie vnto ye Angel: How shall this be, seing I knowe not a man?

42-1:35†††† And the Angel aunswered, & saide vnto her: The holy ghost shall come vpon thee, & the power of the hyest shall ouershadowe thee. Therefore also that holy thyng whiche shalbe borne, shalbe called the sonne of God.

42-1:36†††† And beholde, thy cosin Elizabeth, she hath also conceaued a sonne in her olde age: & this is her sixth moneth, whiche was called barren.

42-1:37†††† For with God, shall nothyng be vnpossible.

42-1:38†††† And Marie saide: Beholde the handmayden of the Lorde, be it vnto me accordyng to thy worde. And the Angel departed from her.

42-1:44†††† For loe, assoone as the voyce of thy salutation sounded in mine eares, the babe sprang in my wombe for ioy.

42-1:45†††† And blessed is she that beleued: For those thinges shalbe perfourmed, which were tolde her from the Lorde.

42-1:46†††† And Marie saide: My soule magnifieth the Lorde.

42-1:47†††† And my spirite reioyceth in God my sauiour.

42-1:48†††† For he hath loked on the lowe degree of his handmayden: For loe, now from hencefoorth shal all generations call me blessed.
