And Mary said - My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath exulted upon God my saviour; Because he hath looked upon the humbling of his handmaid; for lo! from the present time, all the generations, will pronounce me happy. Because he that is mighty hath done for me great things, and, holy, is his name; And his mercy is unto generations and generations, to them who revere him; He hath wrought strength with his arm, He hath scattered men arrogant in the intention of their heart; He hath deposed potentates from thrones, and uplifted the lowly; The hungry, hath he filled with good things, and, the wealthy, hath he sent empty away; He hath laid hold of Israel his servant, to be mindful of mercies: According as he spake unto our fathers, - To Abraham, and to his seed, - Unto times age-abiding. And Mary abode with her about three months, and returned unto her house. And, to Elizabeth, was the time fulfilled, that she should be bringing forth, - and she gave birth to a son. And her neighbours and kinsfolk heard, that the Lord had magnified his mercy with her, and they were rejoicing with her. And it came to pass, on the eighth day, that they came to circumcise the child, and were calling it, after the name of its father, Zachariah. And his mother, answering, said - Nay! but he shall be called, John. And they said unto her - There is, no one from among thy kindred, who is called by this name!

And his mouth was opened instantly, and his tongue loosed , and he began to speak, blessing, God. And fear came upon all the neighbours themselves; and, throughout all the hill-country of Judaea, were all these matters being much talked of; and all who heard laid them up in their hearts, saying - What then shall his child be? for, even the hand of the Lord, was with him. And, Zachariah his father, was filled with Holy Spirit, and prophesied, saying: - Blessed, be the Lord, the God of Israel! Because he hath visited and wrought redemption for his people, And hath raised up a horn of salvation for us, In the house of David his servant: According as he hath spoken by mouth of his holy ancient prophets, - Of salvation from among our foes, and out of the hand of all them that hate us: To perform mercy with our fathers, and to be mindful of his holy covenant, - The oath which he sware unto Abraham our father, To grant us, without fear, from the hand of enemies rescued, to be rendering divine service unto him, in lovingkindness and righteousness before him, all our days. And, even thou, child, prophet of the Most High, shalt be called, - for thou shall march on before the Lord, to prepare his ways, Giving a knowledge of salvation unto his people, by a remission of their sins. Because of the yearning compassion of the mercy of our God, wherein shall visit us a day-dawn from on high, - To shine on them who, in the darkness and shade of death, are sitting, to guide our feet into a way of peace. And, the child, went on growing, and being strengthened in spirit, and was in the deserts, until the day he was pointed out unto Israel.

Moreover she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus, - for, he, will save his people from their sins.


And the disciples James and John, seeing it, said - Lord! wilt thou, that we bid fire come down from heaven, and destroy them? But, turning, he rebuked them. And they journeyed into a different village.

How, to you, doth it seem? If a certain man come to have a hundred sheep and one from among them go astray, Will he not leave the ninety-nine upon the mountains, and going, seek the straying one? And, if it should be that he find it, Verily, I say unto you - He rejoiceth over it, more than over the ninety-nine that have not gone astray. Thus, there is no desire, in the presence of my Father who is in the heavens, that, one of these little ones, should be lost.

And he spake unto them this parable, saying - What man from among you, having a hundred sheep, and losing, from among them, one, doth not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go his way after the lost one, until he find it? And, finding it, he layeth it upon his shoulders, rejoicing; read more.
and, coming unto his house, calleth together the friends and the neighbours, saying unto them - Rejoice with me! because I have found my sheep that was lost! I say unto you - Thus, joy in heaven, will there be, over one sinner repenting, rather than over ninety-nine righteous persons, who indeed have, no need, of repentance. Or, what woman, having, ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a lamp, and sweep the house, and seek carefully, until she find it? And, having found it, she calleth together her female friends and neighbours, saying - Rejoice with me! because I have found the piece of silver which I had lost. Thus, I say unto you, there ariseth joy in presence of the messengers of God, over one sinner repenting. And he said - A certain man, had two sons. And the younger of them said unto the father - Father! give me the share that falleth to me, of what there is. And, he, divided unto them the living. And, after not many days, the younger son, gathering all together, left home for a country far away, and, there, squandered his substance with riotous living. And, when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine throughout that country, - and, he, began to be in want. And he went his way, and joined himself unto one of the citizens of that country, and he sent him into his fields to be feeding swine. And he used to long to be filled with the pods which the swine were eating; and, no man, was giving unto him. But coming, to himself, he said - How many hired servants of my father, have bread enough and to spare, whereas, I, with famine, here, am perishing! I will arise, and go unto my father, and will say unto him - Father! I have sinned against heaven, and before thee: No longer, am I worthy to be called a son of thine, - Make me as one of thy hired servants. And he arose, and came unto his own father. Now, while yet he was holding afar off, his father saw him, and was moved with compassion, and, running, fell upon his neck, and tenderly kissed him. And the son said unto him - Father! I have sinned against heaven, and before thee: No longer, am I worthy to be called a son of thine, - make me as one of thy hired servants. But the father said unto his servants - Quick! bring forth a robe - the best! and put on him, and get out a ring for his hand, and sandals for his feet. And be bringing the fatted calf, sacrifice! and let us eat and make merry: Because, this my son, was, dead, and hath come to life again, was lost, and is found. And they began to be making merry. But his elder son was in a field; and, as, in coming, he drew near unto the house, he heard music and dancing, - and, calling near one of the youths, he inquired what these things, could be. And, he, said unto him, - Thy brother, hath come, and thy father hath sacrificed the fatted calf, because, safe and sound, hath he received him back. But he was provoked to anger, and would not go in. And, his father, coming out, began to entreat him. But, he, answering said unto his father - Lo! so many years as these, do I serve thee, and, at no time, a commandment of thine, have I transgressed, - And, unto me, at no time, hast thou given a kid, that, with my friends, I might make merry; But, when, this thy son, who had devoured thy living with harlots, came, thou didst sacrifice, for him, the fatted calf; But, he, said unto him - Child! thou, always, art, with me, and, all that is mine, is, thine; But, to make merry and rejoice, there was need, because, this thy brother - was, dead, and hath come to life again, and was lost, and is found.

And Jesus said unto him - This day, salvation, unto this house, hath come, - for that, he too, is, a son of Abraham; For the Son of Man came, to seek and to save what was lost.

For God, so loved, the world, that, his Only Begotten Son, he gave, - that, whosoever believeth on him, might not perish, but have life age-abiding. For God, sent not, his Son into the world, that he might judge the world, but, that the world might be saved through him.

And, Jesus, cried aloud, and said - He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me; And, he that vieweth me, vieweth him that sent me. I, a light, into the world have come, that, no one who believeth on me, in darkness, should abide. read more.
And, if anyone shall hearken unto my sayings, and not guard them, I, am not judging him; for I came not that I might judge the world, but that I might save the world.
