And Shemun blessed them, and said to Mariam his mother, Behold, this child is set for the ruin and uprising of many in Isroel, for the sign of contention.
And through thine own soul shall pass a spear, that may be revealed the reasonings of the hearts of many.
But Mariam kept all these words, and compared them in her heart.
BUT in the sixth month Gabriel the angel was sent from before Aloha to Galila, to a city whose name (is) Natsrath,
unto a Virgin espoused to a man whose name was Jauseph, of the house of David, and the name of the Virgin was Mariam.
And the angel entered to her, and said to her, Peace to thee, full of grace! our Lord is with thee, thou blessed among women!
Is not this the son of the carpenter? Is not his mother called Mariam, and his brothers, Jakub, and Josi, and Shemun, and Jehuda?
and his sisters, all, are they not with us? Whence to this one all these?
And the wine failed, and his mother saith to him, to Jeshu, They have no wine.
Jeshu saith to her, What (is it) to me and to thee, woman? Not yet hath come mine hour.
His mother saith to the servitors, Whatever he telleth you, do.
48 And when they saw him, they wondered; and his mother said to him, My son, why hast thou done with us thus? for, behold, I and thy father with great anxiety have sought thee.
49 He saith to them, Why have you sought me (elsewhere)? Knew you not that (in) the house of my Father it behoveth me to be?
50 But they did not comprehend the word that he spake to them.
51 And he went down with them, and came to Natsrath, and was subject to them. But his mother kept all these words in her heart.
31 AND there came his mother and his brethren, standing without; and they sent to call him to them.
32 But the congregation sat about him. And they say to him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without inquire for thee.
33 And he answered, and said to them, Who is my mother, and who are my brethren?
34 And looking upon those who sat with him, he said, Behold my mother, and behold my brethren:
35 for whosoever shall do the will of Aloha, he is my brother, and my sister, and my mother.
46 And Mariam said: My soul doth magnify the Lord,
47 And my spirit rejoiceth in Aloha my Saviour,
48 Who hath looked upon the lowliness of his handmaid: For, behold, from now all generations shall give blessedness to me.
49 Because he hath done for me great things, he who is mighty, And holy is his name.
50 And his grace is for ages and generations Upon those who fear him.
51 He hath wrought victory with his arm; He hath scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts.
52 He hath overturned the mighty from their thrones, And hath exalted the humble.
53 The hungry he hath satisfied with good things, And the rich he hath sent away empty.
54 He hath helped Isroel his servant, And hath remembered his mercy;
55 As he spake with our fathers, With Abraham and with his seed for ever.
NOW the nativity of Jeshu the Meshicha was thus: While Mariam his mother was betrothed to Jauseph, before they could be consociated, she was found to be with child from the Spirit of Holiness.
30 And the angel said to her, Fear not, Mariam, for thou hast found favour with Aloha.
31 For, behold, thou shalt conceive, and shalt bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jeshu.
32 He will be great, and the Son of the Most High shall he be called, and Aloha the Lord shall give unto him the throne of David his father.
33 And he shall reign over the house of Jakub for ever, and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
4 And Jauseph also went up from Natsrath of Galila, unto Jehud, to the city of David, which is called Beth-lechem, because he was of the house and of the family of David,
5 with Mariam his espoused while with child, there to be enrolled.
6 And it was that while they were there, the days were fulfilled that she should give birth:
7 and she brought forth her son, the first-born, and wrapped him in bandages, and laid him in the manger; because there was no place for them where they stayed.
These altogether persevered in prayer with one soul, with the women, and with Mariam the mother of Jeshu, and with his brethren.
They divided my garments among them, And upon my raiment did they cast the lot. These things did the soldiers. But there stood by the cross of Jeshu his mother, and the sister of his mother, and Mariam, she who was (the wife) of Cleopha, and Mariam Magdalitha.
Jeshu seeth his mother, and that disciple whom he loved, standing; and he said to his mother, Woman, behold thy son!
and he said to that disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple received her to be with him.
