Luke Chapter Two

1: And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.
 
2: (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
 
3: And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
 
4: And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)
 
5: To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
 
6: And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
 
7: And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
 
8: And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
 
9: And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
 
10: And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
 
11: For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
 
12: And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, 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, good will toward men.
 
15: And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
 
16: And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
 
17: And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.
 
18: And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.
 
19: But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.
 
20: And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.
 
21: And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called JESUS, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb.
 
22: And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord;
 
23: (As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;)
 
24: And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.
 
25: And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him.
 
26: And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Christ.
 
27: And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law,
 
28: Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said,
 
29: Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word:
 
30: For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
 
31: Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;
 
32: A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.
 
33: And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him.
 
34: And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against;
 
35: (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.
 
36: And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity;
 
37: And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.
 
38: And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem.
 
39: And when they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city Nazareth.
 
40: And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.
 
41: Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the passover.
 
42: And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast.
 
43: And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it.
 
44: But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day’s journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance.
 
45: And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him.
 
46: And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions.
 
47: And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.
 
48: And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.
 
49: And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?
 
50: And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them.
 
51: And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart.
 
52: And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.

Exodus Chapter Forty

1: And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
 
2: On the first day of the first month shalt thou set up the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.
 
3: And thou shalt put therein the ark of the testimony, and cover the ark with the vail.
 
4: And thou shalt bring in the table, and set in order the things that are to be set in order upon it; and thou shalt bring in the candlestick, and light the lamps thereof.
 
5: And thou shalt set the altar of gold for the incense before the ark of the testimony, and put the hanging of the door to the tabernacle.
 
6: And thou shalt set the altar of the burnt offering before the door of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.
 
7: And thou shalt set the laver between the tent of the congregation and the altar, and shalt put water therein.
 
8: And thou shalt set up the court round about, and hang up the hanging at the court gate.
 
9: And thou shalt take the anointing oil, and anoint the tabernacle, and all that is therein, and shalt hallow it, and all the vessels thereof: and it shall be holy.
 
10: And thou shalt anoint the altar of the burnt offering, and all his vessels, and sanctify the altar: and it shall be an altar most holy.
 
11: And thou shalt anoint the laver and his foot, and sanctify it.
 
12: And thou shalt bring Aaron and his sons unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and wash them with water.
 
13: And thou shalt put upon Aaron the holy garments, and anoint him, and sanctify him; that he may minister unto me in the priest’s office.
 
14: And thou shalt bring his sons, and clothe them with coats:
 
15: And thou shalt anoint them, as thou didst anoint their father, that they may minister unto me in the priest’s office: for their anointing shall surely be an everlasting priesthood throughout their generations.
 
16: Thus did Moses: according to all that the LORD commanded him, so did he.
 
17: And it came to pass in the first month in the second year, on the first day of the month, that the tabernacle was reared up.
 
18: And Moses reared up the tabernacle, and fastened his sockets, and set up the boards thereof, and put in the bars thereof, and reared up his pillars.
 
19: And he spread abroad the tent over the tabernacle, and put the covering of the tent above upon it; as the LORD commanded Moses.
 
20: And he took and put the testimony into the ark, and set the staves on the ark, and put the mercy seat above upon the ark:
 
21: And he brought the ark into the tabernacle, and set up the vail of the covering, and covered the ark of the testimony; as the LORD commanded Moses.
 
22: And he put the table in the tent of the congregation, upon the side of the tabernacle northward, without the vail.
 
23: And he set the bread in order upon it before the LORD; as the LORD had commanded Moses.
 
24: And he put the candlestick in the tent of the congregation, over against the table, on the side of the tabernacle southward.
 
25: And he lighted the lamps before the LORD; as the LORD commanded Moses.
 
26: And he put the golden altar in the tent of the congregation before the vail:
 
27: And he burnt sweet incense thereon; as the LORD commanded Moses.
 
28: And he set up the hanging at the door of the tabernacle.
 
29: And he put the altar of burnt offering by the door of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation, and offered upon it the burnt offering and the meat offering; as the LORD commanded Moses.
 
30: And he set the laver between the tent of the congregation and the altar, and put water there, to wash withal.
 
31: And Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and their feet thereat:
 
32: When they went into the tent of the congregation, and when they came near unto the altar, they washed; as the LORD commanded Moses.
 
33: And he reared up the court round about the tabernacle and the altar, and set up the hanging of the court gate. So Moses finished the work.
 
34: Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
 
35: And Moses was not able to enter into the tent of the congregation, because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
 
36: And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys:
 
37: But if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up.
 
38: For the cloud of the LORD was upon the tabernacle by day, and fire was on it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.

Leviticus Chapter One

1: And the LORD called unto Moses, and spake unto him out of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying,
 
2: Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man of you bring an offering unto the LORD, ye shall bring your offering of the cattle, even of the herd, and of the flock.
 
3: If his offering be a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male without blemish: he shall offer it of his own voluntary will at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD.
 
4: And he shall put his hand upon the head of the burnt offering; and it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him.

7: And the sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire upon the altar, and lay the wood in order upon the fire:

9: But his inwards and his legs shall he wash in water: and the priest shall burn all on the altar, to be a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD.
 
10: And if his offering be of the flocks, namely, of the sheep, or of the goats, for a burnt sacrifice; he shall bring it a male without blemish.

16: And he shall pluck away his crop with his feathers, and cast it beside the altar on the east part, by the place of the ashes:
 
17: And he shall cleave it with the wings thereof, but shall not divide it asunder: and the priest shall burn it upon the altar, upon the wood that is upon the fire: it is a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD.

1: And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
 
2: Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a soul shall sin through ignorance against any of the commandments of the LORD concerning things which ought not to be done, and shall do against any of them:

12: Even the whole bullock shall he carry forth without the camp unto a clean place, where the ashes are poured out, and burn him on the wood with fire: where the ashes are poured out shall he be burnt.
