LUKE 2:8-21 ESV

And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock

by night. 9 And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone

around them, and they were filled with great fear. 10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not,

for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you

is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be a

sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 And

suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

14 “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”

15 When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another,

“Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made

known to us.” 16 And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying

in a manger. 17 And when they saw it, they made known the saying that had been told them

concerning this child. 18 And all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them. 19

But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart. 20 And the shepherds

returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told

them. 21 And at the end of eight days, when he was circumcised, he was called Jesus, the

name given by the angel before he was conceived in the womb.
