LUQAS (Luke) 1:26-38; 24:36-53

Luke 1:26-38

26  And in the sixth month the messenger Gaḇri'ĕl was sent by Elohim to a city of Galil named Natsareth,

27  to a maiden engaged to a man whose name was Yosĕph, of the house of Dawiḏ. And the maiden's name was Miryam.

28  And the messenger, coming to her, said, "Greetings, favoured one, the Master is with you. Baruḵ are you among women!"

29  But she was greatly disturbed at his word, and wondered what kind of greeting this was.

30  And the messenger said to her, "Do not be afraid, Miryam, for you have found favour with Elohim.

31  "And see, you shall conceive in your womb, and shall give birth to a Bĕn, and call His Name יהושע.

32  "He shall be great, and shall be called the Bĕn of the Most High. And יהוה Elohim shall give Him the throne of His father Dawiḏ.

33  "And He shall reign over the house of Yaʽaqoḇ forever, and there shall be no end to His reign." 

34  And Miryam said to the messenger, "How shall this be, since I do not know a man?"

35  And the messenger answering, said to her, "The Ruah ha'Qodesh shall come upon you, and the power of the Most High shall overshadow you. And for that reason the Qadosh One born of you shall be called: Bĕn of יהוה.

36  "And see, Elisheḇa your relative, she has also conceived a son in her old age. And this is now the sixth month to her who was called barren,

37  because with Elohim no matter shall be impossible."

38  And Miryam said, "See the female servant of יהוה! Let it be to me according to your word." And the messenger went away from her.

Luke 24:36-53

36  And as they were saying this, יהושע Himself stood in the midst of them, and said to them, "Peace to you."

37  And being startled and frightened, they thought they had seen a spirit.

38  And He said to them, "Why are you troubled? And why do doubts arise in your hearts?

39  "See My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself. Handle Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see I have."

40  And saying this, He showed them His hands and His feet.

41  And while they were still not believing for joy, and marvelling, He said to them, "Have you any food here?"

42  And they gave Him a piece of a broiled fish and some honeycomb.

43  And taking it He ate in their presence.

44  And He said to them, "These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all have to be filled that were written in the Torah of Mosheh and the Neḇi'im and the Tehillim concerning Me."

45  Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures,

46  and said to them, "Thus it has been written, and so it was necessary for ha'Mashiaḥ to suffer and to rise again from the dead the third day,

47  and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in His Name to all nations, beginning at Yerushalayim.

48  "And you are witnesses of these.

49  "And see, I am sending the Promise of My Father upon you, but you are to remain in the city of Yerushalayim until you are clothed with power from on high."

50  And He led them out as far as Bĕyth Anyah, and lifting up His hands He baraḵ them.

51  And it came to be, while He baraḵ them, that He was parted from them and was taken up into the shamayim.

52  And they, having bowed down to Him, returned to Yerushalayim with great joy,

53  and were continually in the Miqdash praising and beraḵah Elohim. Amĕn.
