The Birth of Jesus Christ1 In those days a a decree went out from b Caesar Augustus that all the world should be c registered. 2 This was the first d registration when ▼
▼ Or This was the registration beforeQuirinius f was governor of Syria. 3 And all went to be registered, each to his own town. 4 And Joseph also went up g from Galilee, from the town of h Nazareth, to Judea, to i the city of David, which is called j Bethlehem k because he was of the house and lineage of David, 5 to be registered with Mary, his betrothed, ▼
▼ That is, one legally pledged to be marriedwho was with child. 6 And m while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. 7 And she gave birth to her firstborn son and n wrapped him in swaddling cloths and o laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in p the inn.
