Luke 1

YLT 1 Seeing that many did take in hand to set in order a narration of the matters that have been fully assured among us, NIV 1 Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled among us, YLT 2 as they did deliver to us, who from the beginning became eye-witnesses, and officers of the Word, -- NIV 2 just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eyewitnesses and servants of the word. YLT 3 it seemed good also to me, having followed from the first after all things exactly, to write to thee in order, most noble Theophilus, NIV 3 Therefore, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, it seemed good also to me to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, YLT 4 that thou mayest know the certainty of the things wherein thou wast instructed. NIV 4 so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught. YLT 5 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judea, a certain priest, by name Zacharias, of the course of Abijah, and his wife of the daughters of Aaron, and her name Elisabeth; NIV 5 In the time of Herod king of Judea there was a priest named Zechariah, who belonged to the priestly division of Abijah; his wife Elizabeth was also a descendant of Aaron. YLT 6 and they were both righteous before God, going on in all the commands and righteousnesses of the Lord blameless, NIV 6 Both of them were upright in the sight of God, observing all the Lord's commandments and regulations blamelessly. YLT 7 and they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and both were advanced in their days. NIV 7 But they had no children, because Elizabeth was barren; and they were both well along in years. YLT 8 And it came to pass, in his acting as priest, in the order of his course before God, NIV 8 Once when Zechariah's division was on duty and he was serving as priest before God, YLT 9 according to the custom of the priesthood, his lot was to make perfume, having gone into the sanctuary of the Lord, NIV 9 he was chosen by lot, according to the custom of the priesthood, to go into the temple of the Lord and burn incense. YLT 10 and all the multitude of the people were praying without, at the hour of the perfume. NIV 10 And when the time for the burning of incense came, all the assembled worshipers were praying outside. YLT 11 And there appeared to him a messenger of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of the perfume, NIV 11 Then an angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing at the right side of the altar of incense. YLT 12 and Zacharias, having seen, was troubled, and fear fell on him; NIV 12 When Zechariah saw him, he was startled and was gripped with fear. YLT 13 and the messenger said unto him, `Fear not, Zacharias, for thy supplication was heard, and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear a son to thee, and thou shalt call his name John, NIV 13 But the angel said to him: "Do not be afraid, Zechariah; your prayer has been heard. Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you are to give him the name John. YLT 14 and there shall be joy to thee, and gladness, and many at his birth shall joy, NIV 14 He will be a joy and delight to you, and many will rejoice because of his birth, YLT 15 for he shall be great before the Lord, and wine and strong drink he may not drink, and of the Holy Spirit he shall be full, even from his mother's womb; NIV 15 for he will be great in the sight of the Lord. He is never to take wine or other fermented drink, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit even from birth. YLT 16 and many of the sons of Israel he shall turn to the Lord their God, NIV 16 Many of the people of Israel will he bring back to the Lord their God. YLT 17 and he shall go before Him, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn hearts of fathers unto children, and disobedient ones to the wisdom of righteous ones, to make ready for the Lord, a people prepared.' NIV 17 And he will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous--to make ready a people prepared for the Lord." YLT 18 And Zacharias said unto the messenger, `Whereby shall I know this? for I am aged, and my wife is advanced in her days?' NIV 18 Zechariah asked the angel, "How can I be sure of this? I am an old man and my wife is well along in years." YLT 19 And the messenger answering said to him, `I am Gabriel, who have been standing near before God, and I was sent to speak unto thee, and to proclaim these good news to thee, NIV 19 The angel answered, "I am Gabriel. I stand in the presence of God, and I have been sent to speak to you and to tell you this good news. YLT 20 and lo, thou shalt be silent, and not able to speak, till the day that these things shall come to pass, because thou didst not believe my words, that shall be fulfilled in their season.' NIV 20 And now you will be silent and not able to speak until the day this happens, because you did not believe my words, which will come true at their proper time." YLT 21 And the people were waiting for Zacharias, and wondering at his tarrying in the sanctuary, NIV 21 Meanwhile, the people were waiting for Zechariah and wondering why he stayed so long in the temple. YLT 22 and having come out, he was not able to speak to them, and they perceived that a vision he had seen in the sanctuary, and he was beckoning to them, and did remain dumb. NIV 22 When he came out, he could not speak to them. They realized he had seen a vision in the temple, for he kept making signs to them but remained unable to speak. YLT 23 And it came to pass, when the days of his service were fulfilled, he went away to his house, NIV 23 When his time of service was completed, he returned home. YLT 24 and after those days, his wife Elisabeth conceived, and hid herself five months, saying -- NIV 24 After this his wife Elizabeth became pregnant and for five months remained in seclusion. YLT 25 `Thus hath the Lord done to me, in days in which He looked upon [me], to take away my reproach among men.' NIV 25 "The Lord has done this for me," she said. "In these days he has shown his favor and taken away my disgrace among the people." YLT 26 And in the sixth month was the messenger Gabriel sent by God, to a city of Galilee, the name of which [is] Nazareth, NIV 26 In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, YLT 27 to a virgin, betrothed to a man, whose name [is] Joseph, of the house of David, and the name of the virgin [is] Mary. NIV 27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin's name was Mary. YLT 28 And the messenger having come in unto her, said, `Hail, favoured one, the Lord [is] with thee; blessed [art] thou among women;' NIV 28 The angel went to her and said, "Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you." YLT 29 and she, having seen, was troubled at his word, and was reasoning of what kind this salutation may be. NIV 29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. YLT 30 And the messenger said to her, `Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found favour with God; NIV 30 But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. YLT 31 and lo, thou shalt conceive in the womb, and shalt bring forth a son, and call his name Jesus; NIV 31 You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. YLT 32 he shall be great, and Son of the Highest he shall be called, and the Lord God shall give him the throne of David his father, NIV 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, YLT 33 and he shall reign over the house of Jacob to the ages; and of his reign there shall be no end.' NIV 33 and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end." YLT 34 And Mary said unto the messenger, `How shall this be, seeing a husband I do not know?' NIV 34 "How will this be," Mary asked the angel, "since I am a virgin?" YLT 35 And the messenger answering said to her, `The Holy Spirit shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee, therefore also the holy-begotten thing shall be called Son of God; NIV 35 The angel answered, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. YLT 36 and lo, Elisabeth, thy kinswoman, she also hath conceived a son in her old age, and this is the sixth month to her who was called barren; NIV 36 Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be barren is in her sixth month. YLT 37 because nothing shall be impossible with God.' NIV 37 For nothing is impossible with God." YLT 38 And Mary said, `Lo, the maid-servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to thy saying,' and the messenger went away from her. NIV 38 "I am the Lord's servant," Mary answered. "May it be to me as you have said." Then the angel left her. YLT 39 And Mary having arisen in those days, went to the hill-country, with haste, to a city of Judea, NIV 39 At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea, YLT 40 and entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.

YLT 42 and spake out with a loud voice, and said, `Blessed [art] thou among women, and blessed [is] the fruit of thy womb; NIV 42 In a loud voice she exclaimed: "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear! YLT 43 and whence [is] this to me, that the mother of my Lord might come unto me? NIV 43 But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? YLT 44 for, lo, when the voice of thy salutation came to my ears, leap in gladness did the babe in my womb; NIV 44 As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. YLT 45 and happy [is] she who did believe, for there shall be a completion to the things spoken to her from the Lord.' NIV 45 Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!" YLT 46 And Mary said, `My soul doth magnify the Lord, NIV 46 And Mary said: "My soul glorifies the Lord YLT 47 And my spirit was glad on God my Saviour, NIV 47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, YLT 48 Because He looked on the lowliness of His maid-servant, For, lo, henceforth call me happy shall all the generations, NIV 48 for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant. From now on all generations will call me blessed, YLT 49 For He who is mighty did to me great things, And holy [is] His name, NIV 49 for the Mighty One has done great things for me-- holy is his name. YLT 50 And His kindness [is] to generations of generations, To those fearing Him, NIV 50 His mercy extends to those who fear him, from generation to generation. YLT 51 He did powerfully with His arm, He scattered abroad the proud in the thought of their heart, NIV 51 He has performed mighty deeds with his arm; he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts. YLT 52 He brought down the mighty from thrones, And He exalted the lowly, NIV 52 He has brought down rulers from their thrones but has lifted up the humble. YLT 53 The hungry He did fill with good, And the rich He sent away empty, NIV 53 He has filled the hungry with good things but has sent the rich away empty. YLT 54 He received again Israel His servant, To remember kindness, NIV 54 He has helped his servant Israel, remembering to be merciful YLT 55 As He spake unto our fathers, To Abraham and to his seed -- to the age.' NIV 55 to Abraham and his descendants forever, even as he said to our fathers." YLT 56 And Mary remained with her about three months, and turned back to her house. NIV 56 Mary stayed with Elizabeth for about three months and then returned home. YLT 57 And to Elisabeth was the time fulfilled for her bringing forth, and she bare a son, NIV 57 When it was time for Elizabeth to have her baby, she gave birth to a son. YLT 58 and the neighbours and her kindred heard that the Lord was making His kindness great with her, and they were rejoicing with her. NIV 58 Her neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord had shown her great mercy, and they shared her joy. YLT 59 And it came to pass, on the eighth day, they came to circumcise the child, and they were calling him by the name of his father, Zacharias, NIV 59 On the eighth day they came to circumcise the child, and they were going to name him after his father Zechariah, YLT 60 and his mother answering said, `No, but he shall be called John.'

YLT 61 And they said unto her -- `There is none among thy kindred who is called by this name,' NIV 61 They said to her, "There is no one among your relatives who has that name." YLT 62 and they were making signs to his father, what he would wish him to be called, NIV 62 Then they made signs to his father, to find out what he would like to name the child. YLT 63 and having asked for a tablet, he wrote, saying, `John is his name;' and they did all wonder; NIV 63 He asked for a writing tablet, and to everyone's astonishment he wrote, "His name is John."
