And, she, at the word, was greatly troubled, and began to deliberate, of what kind, this salutation, might be. And the messenger said unto her - Do not fear, Mary, for thou hast found favour with God, - And 1o! thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name, Jesus: the same, shall be great, and, Son of the Most High, shall be called, and the Lord God, will give unto him, the throne of David his father, - And he shall reign over the house of Jacob, unto the ages, and, of his kingdom, there shall be, no end. But Mary said unto the messenger - How, shall this thing be, seeing that, a man, I know not? And answering, the messenger said unto her - The Holy Spirit, shall come upon thee, and, the power of the Most High, shall overshadow thee; wherefore, even that which is to be born, Holy, shall be called, Son of God. And lo! Elizabeth thy kinswoman, even she, hath conceived a son in, her old-age; - and, this month, is, the sixth, to her, the so-called barren one; Because no declaration from God, shall be void of power. And Mary said - Lo! the handmaid of the Lord! Might it come to pass unto me, according to thy declaration. And the messenger departed from her.

Salute Mary - who, indeed, hath toiled much for you.
