26Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, 27to a virgin #Matt. 1:18Luke 2:45betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28And having come in, the angel said to her, #Dan. 9:23“Rejoice, highly favored one, #Judg. 6:12the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!”29But when she saw him, #Luke 1:12she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was. 30Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found #Luke 2:52favor with God. 31#Is. 7:14Matt. 1:21Gal. 4:4And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and #Luke 2:21(Phil. 2:9–11)shall call His name Jesus. 32He will be great, #Matt. 3:17|NoBook| 17:5Mark 5:7Luke 1:3576Luke 6:35Acts 7:48and will be called the Son of the Highest; and #2 Sam. 7:12Ps. 132:11(Is. 9:67Ps 16:5Jer. 23:5)the Lord God will give Him the #2 Sam. 7:14–17Acts 2:33Acts 7:55throne of His #Matt. 1:1father David. 33#(Dan. 2:44Obad. 21Mic. 4:7)John 12:34(Heb. 1:8)2 Pet. 1:11And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”34Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do not know a man?”35And the angel answered and said to her, #Matt. 1:20“The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called #Ps. 2:7Matt. 3:17Ps 14:33Ps 17:5Mark 1:1John 1:34John 20:31Acts 8:37(Rom. 1:1–4Heb. 1:28)the Son of God. 36Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren. 37For #Gen. 18:14Jer. 32:17Matt. 19:26Mark 10:27Rom. 4:21with God nothing will be impossible.”38Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.
