[Diocese of Mauritius - Indian Ocean] Luk 2:6 and while they were in Bethlehem, the time came for her to have her baby.
Luk 2:7 She gave birth to her first son, wrapped him in cloths and laid him in a manger---there was no room for them to stay in the inn.
Luk 2:8 There were some shepherds in that part of the country who were spending the night in the fields, taking care of their flocks.
Luk 2:9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone over them. They were terribly afraid,
Luk 2:10 but the angel said to them, "Don't be afraid! I am here with good news for you, which will bring great joy to all the people.
Luk 2:11 This very day in David's town your Savior was born---Christ the Lord!
Luk 2:12 And this is what will prove it to you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."
Luk 2:13 Suddenly a great army of heaven's angels appeared with the angel, singing praises to God:
Luk 2:14 "Glory to God in the highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom he is pleased!"
Luk 2:15 When the angels went away from them back into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us."
Luk 2:16 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph and saw the baby lying in the manger.
Luk 2:17 When the shepherds saw him, they told them what the angel had said about the child.
Luk 2:18 All who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said.
Luk 2:19 Mary remembered all these things and thought deeply about them.
Luk 2:20 The shepherds went back, singing praises to God for all they had heard and seen; it had been just as the angel had told them.
