Luke 1

RHE 1 Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a narration of the things that have been accomplished among us, NIV 1 Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled among us, RHE 2 According as they have delivered them unto us, who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and 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. RHE 3 It seemed good to me also, having diligently attained to all things from the beginning, to write to 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, RHE 4 That thou mayest know the verity of those words in which thou hast been instructed. NIV 4 so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught. RHE 5 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judea, a certain priest named Zachary, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name Elizabeth. 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. RHE 6 And they were both just before God, walking in all the commandments and justifications of the Lord without blame. NIV 6 Both of them were righteous in the sight of God, observing all the Lord’s commands and decrees blamelessly. RHE 7 And they had no son, for that Elizabeth was barren: and they both were well advanced in years. NIV 7 But they were childless because Elizabeth was not able to conceive, and they were both very old. RHE 8 And it came to pass, when he executed the priestly function 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, RHE 9 According to the custom of the priestly office, it was his lot to offer incense, going 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. RHE 10 And all the multitude of the people was praying without, at the hour of incense. NIV 10 And when the time for the burning of incense came, all the assembled worshipers were praying outside. RHE 11 And there appeared to 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. RHE 12 And Zachary seeing him, was troubled: and fear fell upon him. NIV 12 When Zechariah saw him, he was startled and was gripped with fear. RHE 13 But the angel said to him: Fear not, Zachary, for thy prayer is heard: and thy wife Elizabeth 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. RHE 14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness: and many shall rejoice in his nativity. NIV 14 He will be a joy and delight to you, and many will rejoice because of his birth, RHE 15 For he shall be great before the Lord and shall drink no wine nor strong drink: and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, 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. RHE 16 And he shall convert many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God. NIV 16 He will bring back many of the people of Israel to the Lord their God. RHE 17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias: that he may turn the hearts of the fathers unto the children and the incredulous to the wisdom of the just, to prepare unto the Lord a perfect people. 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.” RHE 18 And Zachary said to the angel: Whereby shall I know this? For I am an old man, and my wife is 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.” RHE 19 And the angel answering, said to him: I am Gabriel, who stand before God and am sent to speak to thee and to bring thee these good tidings. 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. RHE 20 And behold, thou shalt be dumb and shalt not be able to speak until the day wherein these things shall come to pass: because thou hast not believed my words, which shall be fulfilled in their time. 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.” RHE 21 And the people were waiting for Zachary: and they wondered 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. RHE 22 And when he came out, he could not speak to them: and they understood that he had seen a vision in the temple. And he made signs to them and remained 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. RHE 23 And it came to pass, after the days of his office were accomplished, he departed to his own house. NIV 23 When his time of service was completed, he returned home. RHE 24 And after those days, Elizabeth his wife conceived and hid herself five months, saying: NIV 24 After this his wife Elizabeth became pregnant and for five months remained in seclusion. RHE 25 Thus hath the Lord dealt with me in the days wherein he hath had regard 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.” RHE 26 And in the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God into a city of Galilee, called Nazareth, NIV 26 In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, RHE 27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David: and the virgin’s name was 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. RHE 28 And the angel being come in, said unto her: Hail, full of grace, 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.” RHE 29 Who having heard, was troubled at his saying and thought with herself 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. RHE 30 And the angel said to 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. RHE 31 Behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb and shalt bring forth a son: and thou shalt call his name Jesus. NIV 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. RHE 32 He shall be great and shall be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of David his father: and he shall reign in the house of Jacob for ever. 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, RHE 33 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.” RHE 34 And Mary said to the angel: How shall this be done, because I know not man? NIV 34 “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?” RHE 35 And the angel answering, said to her: The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee and the power of the Most High shall overshadow thee. And therefore also the Holy which shall be born of thee shall be called the 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. RHE 36 And behold thy cousin Elizabeth, she also hath conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her that is 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. RHE 37 Because no word shall be impossible with God. NIV 37 For no word from God will ever fail.” RHE 38 And Mary said: Behold the handmaid of the Lord: be it done to 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. RHE 39 And Mary rising up in those days, 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, RHE 40 And she entered into the house of Zachary and saluted Elizabeth. NIV 40 where she entered Zechariah’s home and greeted Elizabeth. RHE 41 And it came to pass that when Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the infant leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost. NIV 41 When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. RHE 42 And she cried 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! RHE 43 And whence is 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? RHE 44 For behold as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy. NIV 44 As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. RHE 45 And blessed art thou that hast believed, because those things shall be accomplished that were spoken to thee by the Lord. NIV 45 Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!” RHE 46 And Mary said: My soul doth magnify the Lord. NIV 46 And Mary said: “My soul glorifies the Lord RHE 47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. NIV 47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, RHE 48 Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid: for behold from henceforth 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, RHE 49 Because he that is mighty hath done great things to me: and holy is his name. NIV 49 for the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is his name. RHE 50 And his mercy is from generation unto generations, to them that fear him. NIV 50 His mercy extends to those who fear him, from generation to generation. RHE 51 He hath shewed might in his arm: he hath scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart. NIV 51 He has performed mighty deeds with his arm; he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts. RHE 52 He hath put down the mighty from their seat and hath exalted the humble. NIV 52 He has brought down rulers from their thrones but has lifted up the humble. RHE 53 He hath filled the hungry with good things: and the rich he hath sent empty away. NIV 53 He has filled the hungry with good things but has sent the rich away empty. RHE 54 He hath received Israel his servant, being mindful of his mercy. NIV 54 He has helped his servant Israel, remembering to be merciful RHE 55 As he spoke to our fathers: to Abraham and to his seed for ever. NIV 55 to Abraham and his descendants forever, just as he promised our ancestors.” RHE 56 And Mary abode with her about three months. And she returned to her own house. NIV 56 Mary stayed with Elizabeth for about three months and then returned home. RHE 57 Now Elizabeth’s full time of being delivered was come: and she brought forth a son. NIV 57 When it was time for Elizabeth to have her baby, she gave birth to a son. RHE 58 And her neighbors and kinsfolks heard that the Lord had shewed his great mercy towards her: and they congratulated with her. NIV 58 Her neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord had shown her great mercy, and they shared her joy. RHE 59 And it came to pass that on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child: and they called him by his father’s name Zachary. NIV 59 On the eighth day they came to circumcise the child, and they were going to name him after his father Zechariah, RHE 60 And his mother answering, said: Not so. But he shall be called John. NIV 60 but his mother spoke up and said, “No! He is to be called John.” RHE 61 And they said to her: There is none of thy kindred that is called by this name. NIV 61 They said to her, “There is no one among your relatives who has that name.” RHE 62 And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called. NIV 62 Then they made signs to his father, to find out what he would like to name the child. RHE 63 And demanding a writing table, he wrote, saying: John is his name. And they all wondered. NIV 63 He asked for a writing tablet, and to everyone’s astonishment he wrote, “His name is John.” RHE 64 And immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue loosed: and he spoke, blessing God. NIV 64 Immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue set free, and he began to speak, praising God. RHE 65 And fear came upon all their neighbours: and all these things were noised abroad over all the hill country of Judea. NIV 65 All the neighbors were filled with awe, and throughout the hill country of Judea people were talking about all these things. RHE 66 And all they that had heard them laid them up in their heart, saying: What an one, think ye, shall this child be? For the hand of the Lord was with him. NIV 66 Everyone who heard this wondered about it, asking, “What then is this child going to be?” For the Lord’s hand was with him. RHE 67 And Zachary his father was filled with the Holy Ghost. And he prophesied, saying: NIV 67 His father Zechariah was filled with the Holy Spirit and prophesied: RHE 68 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel: because he hath visited and wrought the redemption of his people. NIV 68 “Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, because he has come to his people and redeemed them. RHE 69 And hath raised up an horn of salvation to us, in the house of David his servant. NIV 69 He has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David RHE 70 As he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets, who are from the beginning. NIV 70 (as he said through his holy prophets of long ago), RHE 71 Salvation from our enemies and from the hand of all that hate us. NIV 71 salvation from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us— RHE 72 To perform mercy to our fathers and to remember his holy testament. NIV 72 to show mercy to our ancestors and to remember his holy covenant, RHE 73 The oath, which he swore to Abraham our father, that he would grant to us. NIV 73 the oath he swore to our father Abraham: RHE 74 That being delivered from the hand of our enemies, we may serve him without fear: NIV 74 to rescue us from the hand of our enemies, and to enable us to serve him without fear RHE 75 In holiness and justice before him, all our days. NIV 75 in holiness and righteousness before him all our days. RHE 76 And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt, go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways: NIV 76 And you, my child, will be called a prophet of the Most High; for you will go on before the Lord to prepare the way for him, RHE 77 To give knowledge of salvation to his people, unto the remission of their sins. NIV 77 to give his people the knowledge of salvation through the forgiveness of their sins, RHE 78 Through the bowels of the mercy of our God, in which the Orient from on high hath visited us: NIV 78 because of the tender mercy of our God, by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven RHE 79 To enlighten them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death: to direct our feet into the way of peace. NIV 79 to shine on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the path of peace.” RHE 80 And the child grew and was strengthened in spirit: and was in the deserts until the day of his manifestation to Israel. NIV 80 And the child grew and became strong in spirit ; and he lived in the wilderness until he appeared publicly to Israel.
