to whom he was engaged and who was expecting achild. 6 While they were there, the time came for her todeliver her child. 7 And she gave birth to her firstborn son andwrapped him in bands of cloth, and laid him in a manger,because there was no place for them in the inn. 8 In thatregion there were shepherds living in the fields, keepingwatch over their flock by night. 9 Then an angel of the Lordstood before them, and the glory of the Lord shonearound them, and they were terrified.

10 Butthe angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for see—I ambringing you good news of great joy for all the people: 11 toyou is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is theMessiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign for you: you will find achild wrapped in bands of cloth and lying in a manger.” 13 Andsuddenly there was with the angel a multitude of theheavenly host, praising God and saying,
