1 And◦ it came··to··pass in those▵ days, that there went··out▵ a decree from▵ Caesar Augustus that all the world◦ should be enrolled.
2 This enrolling was· first ·made◦ when Kurenius was··governor of Syria.
3 And all went to be enrolled, everyone◦ to◦ his··own▵ city.
4 And◦ Joseph also went··up from Galilee, out··of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to◦ the city of David, which◦ is called Bethlehem, because he was from◦ the house and family of David,
