Luke 2:1-6 MSG

1 About that time Caesar Augustus ordered a census to be taken throughout the Empire.
2 This was the first census when Quirinius was governor of Syria.
3 Everyone had to travel to his own ancestral hometown to be accounted for.
4 So Joseph went from the Galilean town of Nazareth up to Bethlehem in Judah, David's town, for the census. As a descendant of David, he had to go there.
5 He went with Mary, his fianc┼Że, who was pregnant.
6 While they were there, the time came for her to give birth.
