But, when, these things, he had pondered, lo! a messenger of the Lord, by dream, appeared to him, saying,Joseph, son of David! do not fear to take unto thee Mary thy wife, for, that which, in her, hath been begotten, is of , Holy, Spirit.
For I am persuaded thatneither death nor life, nor messengers nor principalities, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers,
Nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Because, the Lord himself, with a word of command, with a chief-messengers voice, and with a trumpet of God, shall descend from heaven,and, the dead in Christ, shall rise, first,
