26 And◦ in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent··out from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth,
27 to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the name of the virgin was Mary.
28 And the angel coming··in to her said◦, Hail, thou who art graced! The Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women.
29 But◦ when she saw◦ him she was disturbed at◦ his word, and reasoned within herself what··manner of a greeting this should be.
30 And the angel said to her, Fear not, Mary; for thou hast found grace with God.
31 And behold◦, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and shalt bring··forth a Son, and shalt call His name Jesus.
32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest, and the Lord God shall give to Him the throne of His father David.
33 And He shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever, and of His kingdom there shall be no end.
34 But◦ Mary said to the angel, How shall this be, since I know not a man◦?
35 And the angel answering said to her, The Holy Spirit shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee; therefore also that which shall be born of thee Holy1 shall be called the Son of God.
36 And behold◦ thy kinswoman Elizabeth, she also has conceived a son in her old··age; and this is the sixth month for her who was called barren.
37 For with God not any saying shall be impossible.
38 And◦ Mary said, Behold◦, the maidservant of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy saying. And the angel departed◦ from her.
