Chapter 1:80 Verses
42-1:1††††† Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us,
42-1:2††††† Even as they delivered them to us, who from the beginning were eye-witnesses, and ministers of the word;
42-1:3††††† It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write to thee in order, most excellent Theophilus,
42-1:4††††† That thou mayest know the certainty of those things in which thou hast been instructed.
42-1:5††††† There was in the days of Herod the king of Judea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.
42-1:6††††† And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.
42-1:7††††† And they had no child, because Elisabeth was barren, and they both were far advanced in years.
42-1:8††††† And it came to pass, that, while he executed the priests' office before God in the order of his course,
42-1:9††††† According to the custom of the priests' office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord.

42-1:11†††† And there appeared to him an angel of the Lord, standing on the right side of the altar of incense.
42-1:12†††† And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him.
42-1:13†††† But the angel said to him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.
42-1:14†††† And thou shalt have joy and gladness, and many shall rejoice at his birth.
42-1:15†††† For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother's womb.
42-1:16†††† And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God.
42-1:17†††† And he shall 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 make ready a people prepared for the Lord.
42-1:18†††† And Zacharias said to the angel, By what shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife far advanced in years.
42-1:19†††† And the angel answering, said to him, I am Gabriel, who stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak to thee, and to show thee these glad tidings.
42-1:20†††† And behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words which shall be fulfilled in their season.

42-1:22†††† And when he came out, he could not speak to them: and they perceived that he had seen a vision in the temple; for he beckoned to them, and remained speechless.
42-1:23†††† And it came to pass, that as soon as the days of his ministration were accomplished, he departed to his own house.
42-1:24†††† And after those days his wife Elisabeth conceived, and secluded herself five months, saying,
42-1:25†††† Thus hath the Lord dealt with me in the days in which he looked on me, to take away my reproach among men.
42-1:26†††† And in the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
42-1:27†††† To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.
42-1:28†††† And the angel came to her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favored, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
42-1:29†††† And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
42-1:30†††† And the angel said to her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favor with God.
42-1:31†††† And behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
42-1:32†††† He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David.
42-1:33†††† And he will reign over the house of Jacob for ever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.
42-1:34†††† Then said Mary to the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
42-1:35†††† And the angel answered and said to her, The Holy Spirit will come upon thee, and the power of the Highest will overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
42-1:36†††† And behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age; and this is the sixth month with her who was called barren:
42-1:37†††† For with God nothing will be impossible.
42-1:38†††† And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord, be it to me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.
42-1:39†††† And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill-country with haste, into a city of Judah,
42-1:40†††† And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.
42-1:41†††† And it came to pass, that when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb: and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
42-1:42†††† And she spoke with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.
42-1:43†††† And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
42-1:44†††† For lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.
42-1:45†††† And blessed is she that believed that there will be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.
42-1:46†††† And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,
42-1:47†††† And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior.
42-1:48†††† For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for behold, from henceforth all generations will call me blessed.
42-1:49†††† For he that is mighty hath done to me great things, and holy is his name.
42-1:50†††† And his mercy is on them that fear him, from generation to generation.
42-1:51†††† He hath shown strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
42-1:52†††† He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree.
42-1:53†††† He hath filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he hath sent away empty.
42-1:54†††† He hath sustained his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy;
42-1:55†††† As he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever.
42-1:56†††† And Mary abode with her about three months, and returned to her own house.
42-1:57†††† Now Elisabeth's full time came that she should be delivered; and she brought forth a son.
42-1:58†††† And her neighbors and her cousins heard that the Lord had shown great mercy upon her; and they rejoiced with her.
42-1:59†††† And it came to pass, that on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child; and they called him Zacharias, after the name of his father.
42-1:60†††† And his mother answered and said, Not so; but he shall be called John.
42-1:61†††† And they said to her, There is none of thy kindred that is called by this name.
42-1:62†††† And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called.
42-1:63†††† And he asked for a writing-table, and wrote, saying, His name is John. And they all wondered.
42-1:64†††† And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spoke, and praised God.
42-1:65†††† And fear came on all that dwelt around them; and all these sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill-country of Judea.
42-1:66†††† And all they that had heard them, laid them up in their hearts, saying, What manner of child will this be! And the hand of the Lord was with him.
42-1:67†††† And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Spirit, and prophesied, saying,
42-1:68†††† Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people.
42-1:69†††† And hath raised up a horn of salvation for us, in the house of his servant David:
42-1:70†††† As he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets, who have been since the world began:
42-1:71†††† That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us;
42-1:72†††† To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant:
42-1:73†††† The oath which he swore to our father Abraham,
42-1:74†††† That he would grant to us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies, might serve him without fear,
42-1:75†††† In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.
42-1:76†††† And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest, for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;
42-1:77†††† To give knowledge of salvation to his people, by the remission of their sins,
42-1:78†††† Through the tender mercy of our God; by which the day-spring from on high hath visited us,
42-1:79†††† To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shades of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.
