<​*​> <​Luke​> <​16/​> in holiness and righteousness <​before him​> all the days of our lives <​16/​> and thou child shalt be called the prophet of the highest, for thou shalt go before the <​face of​> Lord to prepare his ways; to give knowledge of salvation unto his people, by baptism for the remission of their sins, through the tender mercy of our God whereby the day spring from on high hath visited us, to give light to them who sit in darkness and the shadow of death; to guide our feet into the way of peace. and the child grew and waxed strong in the spirit, and was in the deserts <​un​>till the day of his shewing unto Israel.
Luke, Chapter 2
Chapter 2nd <​Luke​>
And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Ceaser Augustus, that all his empire should be taxed. This <​same​> taxing was when Cyrenius was governer of Syria. And all went to be taxed, every one in his own City. and Joseph also went up from Gallilee, out of the City of Nazereth, into Judeah, unto the City of David, which is called Bethlehem (because he was of the house and leneage of David,) to be taxed, with Mary his espoused wife, she being great with child. <​2/​> and so it was, that while they were there, they the days were accomplished that she should be deliverd. And she brought forth her first born son, and wraped him him in swadling cloths, and laid him in a manger, because there was none to give room for them in the inns. <​3/​> And there were in the same country, shepperds adiding <​abiding​> in the feild, keeping watch over their flocks by night. And lo, the <​an​> angel of the Lord came upon <​apeared unto​> them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them; and they were sore affraid. and But the Angel said unto them, fear not, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day, in the City of David, a Saviour, who is ch[r]ist the Lord. And this is a sign unto <​the way you​> you ye shall find the babe, <​he is​> wrapped in swadling cloaths, <​and is​> laying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly hosts, praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest; and on earth, peace; good will towards men. <​4/​> and it came to pass, when the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepperds said one to another, let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord has made known unto us. and the <​they​> came with haste, and found Mary and Joseph, and the babe laying in a manger. and when they [p. 49 (second numbering)]

And she brought forth her first born son, and wraped him in swadling cloths, and laid him in a manger, because there was none to give room for them in the inns. 3/ And there were in the same country, shepperds abiding in the feild, keeping watch over their flocks by night. And lo, an angel of the Lord apeared unto them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them; and they were sore affraid. But the Angel said unto them, fear not, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day, in the City of David, a Saviour, who is christ the Lord. And this is the way you shall find the babe, he is wrapped in swadling cloaths, and is laying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly hosts, praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest; and on earth, peace; good will to men. 4/ and it came to pass, when the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepperds said one to another, let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord has made known unto us. and they came with haste, and found Mary and Joseph, and the babe laying in a manger. and when they [p. 49 (second numbering)]
