Luke 1:21-38 Darby’s Translation

21  And the people were awaiting Zacharias, and they wondered at his delaying in the temple. 22  But when he came out he could not speak to them, and they recognised that he had seen a vision in the temple. And he was making signs to them, and continued dumb. 23  And it came to pass, when the days of his service were completed, he departed to his house. 24  Now after these days, Elizabeth his wife conceived, and hid herself five months, saying, 25  Thus has [the] Lord done to me in [these] days in which he looked upon [me] to take away my reproach among men.

Jesus' Birth Foretold

26  But in the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent of God to a city of Galilee, of which [the] name [was] Nazareth, 27  to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name [was] Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name [was] Mary. 28  And the angel came in to her, and said, Hail, [thou] favoured one! the Lord [is] with thee: [blessed art thou amongst women]. 29  But she, [seeing] [the angel], was troubled at his word, and reasoned in her mind what this salutation might be. 30  And the angel said to her, Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found favour with God; 31  and behold, thou shalt conceive in the womb and bear a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus. 32  He shall be great, and shall be called Son of [the] Highest; and [the] Lord God shall give him the throne of David his father; 33  and he shall reign over the house of Jacob for the ages, and of his kingdom there shall not be an end. 34  But Mary said to the angel, How shall this be, since I know not a man? 35  And the angel answering said to her, [The] Holy Spirit shall come upon thee, and power of [the] Highest overshadow thee, wherefore the holy thing also which shall be born shall be called Son of God. 36  And behold, Elizabeth, thy kinswoman, she also has conceived a son in her old age, and this is the sixth month to her that was called barren: 37  for nothing shall be impossible with God. 38  And Mary said, Behold the bondmaid of [the] Lord; be it to me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.
