2:8. In the same country there were shepherds watching and keeping the night watches over their flock,
2:9. and behold, an angel of the Lord stood by them and the brightness of God shone round about them, and they feared with a great fear.
2:10. The angel said to them, “Do not fear; for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy that shall be to all the people,
2:11. “for this day a Savior is born to you, Christ the Lord, in the city of David.
2:12. “This shall be a sign to you: you shall find the Infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and laid in a manger.”
2:13. Suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly army, praising God and saying,
2:14. “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men of good will.”
2:15. After the angels departed from them into Heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has occurred which the Lord has declared to us.”
