Jay P. Green's Literal Translation 1993



2:1And it happened in those days, a decree went out from Caesar Augustus for all the habitable world to be registered.
2:2This registration first occurred under the governing of Syria by Cyrenius.
2:3And all went to be registered, each to his own city.
2:4And Joseph also went from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth to Judea, to the city of David which is called Bethlehem, because of his being of the house and family of David,
2:5to be registered with Mariam, she having been betrothed to him as wife, she being pregnant.
2:6And it happened as they were there, the days were fulfilled for her to bear.
2:7And she bore her son, the First-born. And she wrapped Him and laid Him in the manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.
2:8And shepherds were in the same country living in the fields and keeping guard over their flock by night.
2:9And, behold, an angel of the Lord came on them. And the glory of the Lord shone around them. And they feared with a great fear.
2:10And the angel said to them, Do not fear. For, behold, I announce good news to you, a great joy, which will be to all people,
2:11because today a Savior, who is Christ the Lord, was born to you in the city of David.
2:12And this is a sign to you: You will find a babe having been wrapped, lying in the manger.
2:13And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying,
2:14Glory to God in the highest, and peace on earth, good will among men.
2:15And it happened as the angels departed from them into the heaven, even the men, the shepherds, said to one another, Indeed, let us go over to Bethlehem, and let us see this thing which has occurred, which the Lord made known to us.
2:16And hurrying, they came and sought out both Mariam and Joseph, and the babe lying in the manger.
2:17And seeing, they publicly told about the word spoken to them about this Child.
2:18And all those hearing marveled about the things spoken to them by the shepherds.
2:19And Mariam kept all these words, meditating in her heart.
2:20And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all things which they heard and saw, even as was spoken to them.
2:21And when eight days were fulfilled to circumcise the child His name was called Jesus, the name called by the angel before He was conceived in the womb.
2:22And when the days of her cleansing according to the Law of Moses were fulfilled, they took Him up to Jerusalem to present Him to the Lord,
2:23as it has been written in the Law of the Lord: Every male opening a womb shall be called holy to the Lord; Ex. 13:2
2:24and to offer a sacrifice according to that said in the Law of the Lord, a pair of turtledoves, or two nestlings of doves. Lev. 12:8
2:25And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon. And this man was righteous and devout, eagerly expecting the Consolation of Israel. And the Holy Spirit was upon him.
2:26And it happened to him, having been divinely instructed by the Holy Spirit, he was not to see death before he would see the Christ of the Lord.
2:27And by the Spirit he came into the temple. And as the parents were bringing in the child Jesus for them to do according to the custom of the Law concerning Him,
2:28even Simeon received Him into his arms. And he blessed God and said,
2:29Now, Master, You will let Your slave go in peace according to Your word;
2:30because my eyes saw Your Salvation,
2:31which You prepared before the face of all the peoples;
2:32a Light for revelation to the nations, and the Glory of Your people Israel.
2:33And Joseph was marveling, also His mother, at the things being said concerning Him.
2:34And Simeon blessed them and said to His mother Mariam, Behold, this One is set for the fall and rising up of many in Israel, and for a sign spoken against;
2:35yea, a sword also will pierce your own soul, so that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.
2:36And there was Anna, a prophetess, a daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was advanced in many days, having lived seven years with a husband from her virginity;
2:37and she was a widow of eighty four years, who did not depart from the temple, serving night and day with fastings and prayers.
2:38And coming on at the very hour, she gave thanks to the Lord, and spoke concerning Him to all those in Jerusalem eagerly expecting redemption.
2:39And as they finished all things according to the Law of the Lord, they returned to Galilee, to Nazareth their city.
2:40And the Child grew, and became strong in spirit, being filled with wisdom. And the grace of God was upon Him.
2:41And His parents went into Jerusalem year by year at the Feast of the Passover.
2:42And when He was twelve years old , they, going up to Jerusalem according to the custom of the Feast,
2:43and fulfilling the days, in their returning, the boy Jesus stayed in Jerusalem. And Joseph and His mother did not know.
2:44But supposing Him to be in the company, they went a day on the way. And they looked for Him among the relatives and friends.
2:45And not finding Him, they returned to Jerusalem, looking for Him.
2:46And it happened after three days they found Him in the temple sitting in the midst of the teachers, even hearing them and questioning them.
2:47And all those hearing Him were amazed at His intelligence and His answers.
2:48And seeing Him, they were astounded. And His mother said to Him, Child, why did You do so to us? Behold, Your father and I were looking for You, greatly distressed.
2:49And He said to them, Why did you look for me? Did you not know that I must be busy in the affairs of My Father?
2:50And they did not understand the word which He spoke to them.
2:51And He went with them and came to Nazareth and was being subject to them. And His mother carefully kept all these words in her heart.
2:52And Jesus progressed in wisdom and stature and favor before God and men. see 1 Sam. 2:26
