The an­gel Gabriel was sent from God to a town of Galilee called Nazareth, to a vir­gin be­trothed to a man named Joseph, of the house of David, and the vir­gin’s name was Mary. And com­ing to her, he said, “Hail, full of grace! The Lord is with you.” But she was greatly trou­bled at what was said and pon­dered what sort of greet­ing this might be. Then the an­gel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found fa­vor with God. Be­hold, you will con­ceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name him Je­sus. He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give him the throne of David his fa­ther, and he will rule over the house of Ja- cob for­ever, and of his King­dom there will be no end.” But Mary said to the an­gel, “How can this be, since I have no re­la­tions with a man?” And the an­gel said to her in re­ply, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will over­shadow you. There­fore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God. And be­hold, El­iz­a­beth, your rel­a­tive, has also con­ceived a son in her old age, and this is the sixth month for her who was called bar­ren; for noth­ing will be im­pos­si­ble for God.” Mary said, “Be­hold, I am the hand­maid of the Lord. May it be done to me ac­cord­ing to your word.” Then the an­gel de­parted from her.
