Tyndale (TYN) New International Version (NIV)
1 And it chaunced in thoose dayes: yt ther went oute a comaundment from Auguste the Emperour that all the woorlde shuld be taxed. 1 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world.
2 And this taxynge was ye fyrst and executed when Syrenius was leftenaut in Syria. 2 (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.)
3 And every man went vnto his awne citie to be taxed. 3 And everyone went to his own town to register.
4 And Ioseph also ascended from Galile oute of a cite called Nazareth into Iurie: vnto ye cite of David which is called Bethleem because he was of the housse and linage of David 4 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David.
5 to be taxed with Mary his spoused wyfe which was with chylde. 5 He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.
6 And it fortuned whyll they were there her tyme was come that she shuld be delyvered. 6 While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born,
7 And she brought forth her fyrst begotten sonne and wrapped him in swadlynge cloothes and layed him in a manger because ther was no roume for them within in the ynne. 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
8 And ther were in the same region shepherdes abydinge in the felde and watching their flocke by nyght. 8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.
9 And loo: the angell of ye lorde stode harde by the and the brightnes of ye lorde shone rounde aboute them and they were soare afrayed. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.
10 But the angell sayd vnto them: Be not afrayed. For beholde I bringe you tydinges of greate ioye yt shal come to all ye people: 10 But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.
11 for vnto you is borne this daye in the cite of David a saveoure which is Christ ye lorde. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.
12 And take this for a signe: ye hall fynde ye chylde swadled and layed in a mager. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."
13 And streight waye ther was with the angell a multitude of hevenly sowdiers laudynge God and sayinge: 13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
14 Glory to God an hye and peace on the erth: and vnto men reioysynge. 14 "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."
15 And it fortuned assone as the angels were gone awaye fro them in to heven the shepherdes sayd one to another: let vs goo eve vnto Bethleem and se this thynge that is hapened which the Lorde hath shewed vnto vs. 15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about."
16 And they cam with haste and founde Mary and Ioseph and the babe layde in a mager. 16 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger.
17 And when they had sene it they publisshed a brode the sayinge which was tolde them of that chylde. 17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child,
18 And all that hearde it wondred at those thinges which were tolde the of the shepherdes. 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.
19 But Mary kept all thoose sayinges and pondered them in hyr hert. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.
20 And the shepherdes retourned praysinge and laudinge God for all that they had herde and sene evyn as it was told vnto them. 20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.
21 And when ye eyght daye was come yt the chylde shuld be circucised his name was called Iesus which was named of the angell before he was conceaved in the wombe. 21 On the eighth day, when it was time to circumcise him, he was named Jesus, the name the angel had given him before he had been conceived.
22 And when the tyme of their purificacio (after the lawe of Moyses) was come they brought him to Hierusalem to present hym to ye Lorde 22 When the time of their purification according to the Law of Moses had been completed, Joseph and Mary took him to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord
23 (as yt is written in the lawe of the Lorde: every man that fyrst openeth the matrix shalbe called holy to the Lorde) 23 (as it is written in the Law of the Lord, "Every firstborn male is to be consecrated to the Lord" ),
24 and to offer (as it ys sayde in the lawe of the Lorde) a payre of turtle doves or two yonge pigions. 24 and to offer a sacrifice in keeping with what is said in the Law of the Lord: "a pair of doves or two young pigeons."

And when the father and mother brought in the chylde Iesus to do for him after the custome of the lawe 27 Moved by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the custom of the Law required,

29 Lorde Now lettest thou thy seruaut departe in peace accordinge to thy promes. 29 "Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you now dismiss your servant in peace.
30 For myne eyes have sene ye saveour sent fro ye 30 For my eyes have seen your salvation,
31 Wich thou hast prepared before the face of all people. 31 which you have prepared in the sight of all people,
32 A light to lighten the gentyls and the glory of thy people Israel. 32 a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel."
33 And his father and mother mervelled at those thinges which were spoke of him. 33 The child's father and mother marveled at what was said about him.
34 And Simeon blessed them and sayde vnto Mary his mother: beholde this chyld shalbe the fall and resurreccio of many in Israel and a signe which shalbe spoke agaynste. 34 Then Simeon blessed them and said to Mary, his mother: "This child is destined to cause the falling and rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be spoken against,
35 And morover the swearde shall pearce thy soule yt the thoughtes of many hertes maye be opened. 35 so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your own soul too."
