When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Jothorities read of seph, before they came together she was found with

make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily. But when he thought on these things, 20 behold, an angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not

to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is 5 Gr. begotten. 'conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she 21

shall bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name
JESUS; for it is he that shall save his people from
their sins. Now all this is come to pass, that it 22
might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord
through the prophet, saying,
Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and shall 23

bring forth a son,
And they shall call his name "Immanuel;
which is, being interpreted, God with us. And Jo-24
seph arose from his sleep, and did as the angel of
the Lord commanded him, and took unto him his
wife; and knew her not till she had brought forth a 25
son: and he called his name JESUS.

Now when Jesus was lor, in Bethlehem of Judæa 2

in the days of Herod the king, behold, ?wise men 8 Or, Where is the from the east came to Jerusalem, saying, 'Where is 2 King of the Jews he that is born King of the Jews? for we saw his

star in the east, and are come to worship him. And 3
when Herod the king heard it, he was troubled, and
all Jerusalem with him. And gathering together 4
all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he in-
quired of them where the Christ should be born.

And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judæa: 5 9 Or, through

for thus it is written by the prophet,
And thou Bethlehem, land of Judah,

6 Art in no wise least among the princes of Judah: For out of thee shall come forth a governor,

Which shall be shepherd of my people Israel.

Then Herod privily called the 'wise men, and learn- 7 "the" star that ap- ed of them carefully 'what time the star appeared. peared

And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and 8
search out carefully concerning the young child;
and when ye have found him, bring me word, that
I also may come and worship him. And they, hav- 9

which they saw in the east, went before them, till it

came and stood over where the young child was. 10 And when they saw the star, they rejoiced with ex11 ceeding great joy. And they came into the house

and saw the young child with Mary his mother; and they fell down and worshipped him; and opening

their treasures they offered unto him gifts, gold and 12 frankincense and myrrh. And being warned of

God in a dream that they should not return to

Herod, they departed into their own country anoth13 Now when they were departed, behold, an angel

of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I tell thee:

for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him. 14 And he arose and took the young child and his 15 mother by night, and departed into Egypt; and was

there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the

prophet, saying, Out of Egypt did I call my son. 16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of

the 'wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, 1 Gr. Magi. and slew all the male children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the borders thereof, from two years

old and under, according to the time which he had 17 carefully learned of the wise men. Then was ful

filled that which was spoken' by Jeremiah the proph- 2 Or, through

et, saying,
18 A voice was heard in Ramah,

Weeping and great mourning,
Rachel weeping for her children;
And she would not be comforted, because they

are not.
19 But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the
20 Lord appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt, say-

ing, Arise and take the young child and his mother,

and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead 21 that sought the young child's life. And he arose

and took the young child and his mother, and came 22 into the land of Israel. But when he heard that

Archelaus was reigning over Judæa in the room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go thither; and

being warned of God in a dream, he withdrew into 23 the parts of Galilee, and came and dwelt in a city

called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken ?by the prophets, that he should be called a Nazarene.

And in those days cometh John the Baptist, 3 preaching in the wilderness of Judæa, saying, Re- 2

pent ye; for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. For 3 1 Or, through this is he that was spoken of 'by Isaiah the prophet,

saying,

The voice of one crying in the wilderness,
Make ye ready the way of the Lord,

Make his paths straight.
Now John himself had his raiment of camel's hair, 4
and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his food
was locusts and wild honey. Then went out unto 5
him Jerusalem, and all Judæa, and all the region
round about Jordan; and they were baptized of him 6
in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. But when 7
he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming
to his baptism*, he said unto them, Ye offspring of

vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to 2 Or, your repent- come? Bring forth therefore fruit worthy of ’re- 8

pentance: and think not to say within yourselves, 9 We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. And even now is the axe laid unto + 10 the root of the trees: every tree therefore that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. I indeed baptize you 'with water unto re-11

pentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier 4 Gr. sufficient. than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he

shall baptize you 'with the Holy Ghost and with fire: whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly 12 cleanse his threshing-floor; and he will gather his wheat into the garner, but the chaff he will burn up with unquenchable fire.

Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to the Jordan 13 unto John, to be baptized of him. But John would 14 have hindered him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me ? But Jesus 15 answering said unto him, Suffer 5it now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffereth him. And Jesus, when he was baptized, 16

went up straightway from the water: and lo, the thorities omit un- heavens were opened bunto him, and he saw the

Spirit of God descending as a dove, and coming 7 Or, This is my upon him; and lo, a voice out of the heavens, say-17

ing, 'This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well well pleased. See pleased.

Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wil2 derness to be tempted of the devil. And when he

had fasted forty days and forty nights, he afterward 3 hungered. And the tempter came and said unto

him, If thou art the Son of God, command that these
4 stones become 'bread. But he answered and said, 1 Gr. loaves.
It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but
by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of
5 God. Then the devil taketh him into the holy city;
6 and he set him on the 'pinnacle of the temple, and 2 Gr. wing.
saith unto him, If thou art the Son of God, cast thy-
self down: for it is written,

He shall give his angels charge concerning thee:
And on their hands they shall bear thee up,

Lest haply thou dash thy foot against a stone.
7 Jesus said unto him, Again it is written, Thou shalt
8 not tempt the Lord thy God. Again, the devil tak-
eth him unto an exceeding high mountain, and shew-

eth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory 9 of them; and he said unto him, All these things will

I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan:

for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy 11 God, and him only shalt thou serve. Then the devil

leaveth him; and behold, angels came and minis

tered unto him. 12 Now when he heard that John was delivered up, he 13 withdrew into Galilee; and leaving Nazareth, he

came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is by the sea, 14 in the borders of Zebulun and Naphtali: that it

might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the 3 Or, through

prophet, saying, 15 The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali,

Galilee of the 5Gentiles,
16 The people which sat in darkness

Saw a great light,
And to them which sat in the region and shad-

ow of death,

To them did light spring up. 17 From that time began Jesus to preach, and to say,

Repent ye; for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. 18 And walking by the sea of Galilee, he saw two

brethren, Simon who is called Peter, and Andrew

his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were 19 fishers. And he saith unto them, Come ye after me, 20 and I will make you fishers of men. And they 21 straightway left the nets, and followed him. And
