city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
] To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of
David; and the virgin's name was Mary.
] And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly
favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
] And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in

among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.

ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.
] And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance
of those things which were told her from the Lord.
