Luke 1

JUB 1 Forasmuch as many have attempted to set forth in order the history of those things which among us have been most certain, NIV 1 Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled among us, JUB 2 even as those who were eyewitnesses from the beginning taught us and <em>thus</em> were ministers 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. JUB 3 it seemed good also to me, after having understood all the things from the beginning with great diligence, to write them unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus, NIV 3 With this in mind, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, I too decided to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, JUB 4 that thou mightest know the security of those things in which thou hast been instructed. NIV 4 so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught. JUB 5 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia, and his wife <em>was</em> of the daughters of Aaron, and her name <em>was</em> 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. JUB 6 And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord, blameless. NIV 6 Both of them were righteous in the sight of God, observing all the Lord’s commands and decrees blamelessly. JUB 7 And they had no child because Elisabeth was barren, and they both were <em>now</em> well advanced in years. NIV 7 But they were childless because Elizabeth was not able to conceive, and they were both very old. JUB 8 And it came to pass that while he executed the priest’s office before God in the order of his course, NIV 8 Once when Zechariah’s division was on duty and he was serving as priest before God, JUB 9 according to the custom of the priest’s office, his lot was to burn incense entering into the temple 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. JUB 10 And the whole multitude of the people were praying outside at the time of incense. NIV 10 And when the time for the burning of incense came, all the assembled worshipers were praying outside. JUB 11 And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense. NIV 11 Then an angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing at the right side of the altar of incense. JUB 12 And when Zacharias saw <em>him</em>, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him. NIV 12 When Zechariah saw him, he was startled and was gripped with fear. JUB 13 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias, for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, 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 call him John. JUB 14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth. NIV 14 He will be a joy and delight to you, and many will rejoice because of his birth, JUB 15 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Spirit, 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 before he is born. JUB 16 And he shall turn many of the sons of Israel to the Lord their God. NIV 16 He will bring back many of the people of Israel to the Lord their God. JUB 17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elijah to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children and the rebellious to the prudence of the just, to make ready a prepared people for the Lord. NIV 17 And he will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the parents to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous—to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.” JUB 18 And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife <em>is</em> well advanced in years. 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.” JUB 19 And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God, and am sent to speak unto thee and to show thee this gospel. NIV 19 The angel said to him, “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. JUB 20 And, behold, thou shalt be dumb and not able to speak until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou didst not believe my words, which 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 appointed time.” JUB 21 And the people waited for Zacharias and marvelled that he tarried so long in the temple. NIV 21 Meanwhile, the people were waiting for Zechariah and wondering why he stayed so long in the temple. JUB 22 And when he came out, he could not speak unto them; and they perceived that he had seen a vision in the temple, for he communicated with signs and remained speechless. 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. JUB 23 And it came to pass that as soon as the days of his ministration were accomplished, he departed to his own house. NIV 23 When his time of service was completed, he returned home. JUB 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. JUB 25 Thus hath the Lord dealt with me in the days wherein he looked on <em>me</em>, 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.” JUB 26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee named Nazareth NIV 26 In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, JUB 27 to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David and the virgin’s name <em>was</em> 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. JUB 28 And the angel came in unto her and said, Hail, <em>thou that art</em> much graced, the Lord <em>is</em> with thee; blessed <em>art</em> thou among women. NIV 28 The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.” JUB 29 And when she saw <em>him</em>, she was troubled at his words and wondered in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. NIV 29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. JUB 30 Then the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace with God. NIV 30 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. JUB 31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb and bring forth a son and shalt call his name Jesus. NIV 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. JUB 32 He shall be great and shall be called the Son of the Highest, and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David; 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, JUB 33 and he shall reign in the house of Jacob for ever, and of his kingdom there shall be no end. NIV 33 and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.” JUB 34 Then Mary said unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? NIV 34 “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?” JUB 35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Spirit shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee; therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called <em>the</em> Son of God. NIV 35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on 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. JUB 36 And, behold, thy relative Elisabeth, she has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is the sixth month with her, who <em>was</em> 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 unable to conceive is in her sixth month. JUB 37 For with God nothing is impossible. NIV 37 For no word from God will ever fail.” JUB 38 Then Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her. NIV 38 “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” Then the angel left her. JUB 39 And Mary arose in those days and went into the hill country with haste into a city of Juda NIV 39 At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea, JUB 40 and entered into the house of Zacharias and saluted Elisabeth. NIV 40 where she entered Zechariah’s home and greeted Elizabeth.

JUB 42 and she spoke out with a loud voice and said, Blessed <em>art</em> thou among women, and blessed <em>is</em> 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! JUB 43 And whence <em>is</em> this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? NIV 43 But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? JUB 44 For, behold, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. NIV 44 As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. JUB 45 And blessed <em>is</em> she that believed, for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord. NIV 45 Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!” JUB 46 Then Mary said, My soul magnifies the Lord, NIV 46 And Mary said: “My soul glorifies the Lord JUB 47 and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Saving Health, NIV 47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, JUB 48 for he has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden; for, behold, from now on all generations shall call me blessed. NIV 48 for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant. From now on all generations will call me blessed, JUB 49 For he that is mighty has done great things unto me, and holy <em>is</em> his name. NIV 49 for the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is his name. JUB 50 And his mercy <em>is</em> on those that fear him from generation to generation.

JUB 58 And her neighbours and her relatives heard how the Lord had showed great mercy upon her, and they rejoiced with her.
