Bible: Luke 2:8-14

The Shepherds’ Visit

2:8 Now 1  there were shepherds 2  nearby 3  living out in the field, keeping guard 4  over their flock at night. 2:9 An 5  angel of the Lord 6  appeared to 7  them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were absolutely terrified. 8  2:10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid! Listen carefully, 9  for I proclaim to you good news 10  that brings great joy to all the people: 2:11 Today 11  your Savior is born in the city 12  of David. 13  He is Christ 14  the Lord. 2:12 This 15  will be a sign 16  for you: You will find a baby wrapped in strips of cloth and lying in a manger.” 17  2:13 Suddenly 18  a vast, heavenly army 19  appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

2:14Glory 20  to God in the highest,

and on earth peace among people 21  with whom he is pleased! 22
