Luke 2:1-11 (Wycliffe)

View In My Bible
1 And it was done in those days, a commandment went out from the emperor Augustus [a commandment went out from Caesar Augustus], that all the world should be described. 2 This first describing was made of Cyrenius, justice of Syria [justice, or keeper, of Syria]. 3 And all men went to make profession, [or acknowledging,] each into his own city. [+And all went, that they should make profession, or acknowledging, each by himself into his city.] 4 And Joseph went up from Galilee, from the city Nazareth [of the city of Nazareth], into Judaea, into a city of David, that is called Bethlehem, for that he was of the house and of the family of David, 5 that he should acknowledge with Mary, his wife, that was wedded to him, and was great with child. [that he should acknowledge with Mary, spoused to him wife, with child.] 6 And it was done, while they were there, the days were fulfilled, that she should bear child. 7 And she bare her firstborn son, and wrapped him in ?clothes, and laid him in a feed-trough [and put him in a cratch], for there was no place to him in no chamber. 8 And shepherds were in the same country, waking and keeping the watches of the night on [upon] their flock. 9 And lo! the angel of the Lord stood beside them, and the clearness of God shined about them [and the clearness of God shone about them]; and they dreaded with great dread. 10 And the angel said to them, Do not ye dread; for lo! I preach to you a great joy [lo! soothly I evangelize to you a great joy], that shall be to all people. 11 For a Saviour is born to day to you, that is Christ the Lord, in the city of David.
