1 序言(參徒1:1)尊敬的提阿非羅先生,因為有許多人,已經把在我們中間成就了的事,

2 按照起初親眼看見的傳道人所傳給我們的,編著成書;

3 我已經把這些事從頭考查過,認為也應該按著次序寫給你,

4 讓你曉得所學到的道理,都是確實的。

5 天使預言施洗約翰出生猶太王希律在位的日子,亞比雅班裡有一個祭司,名叫撒迦利亞,他妻子是亞倫的後代,名叫以利沙伯。

6 他們在 神面前都是義人,遵行主的一切誡命規條,無可指摘,

7 只是沒有孩子,因為以利沙伯不生育,二人又都上了年紀。

8 有一次,撒迦利亞在 神面前按著班次執行祭司的職務,

9 照祭司的慣例抽中了籤,進入主的聖殿燒香。

10 燒香的時候,眾人都在外面祈禱。

11 有主的使者站在香壇右邊,向他顯現。

12 撒迦利亞一見就驚慌起來,十分害怕。

13 天使說:“撒迦利亞,不要怕,因為你的祈求已蒙垂聽,你妻子以利沙伯要給你生一個兒子,你要給他起名叫約翰。

14 你必歡喜快樂,許多人因他出生,也必喜樂。

15 他在主面前要被尊為大,淡酒濃酒都不喝,未出母腹就被聖靈充滿。

16 他要使許多以色列人轉向主他們的 神。

17 他必有以利亞的靈和能力,行在主的前面,叫父親的心轉向兒女,叫悖逆的轉向義人的意念,為主安排那預備好了的人民。”

18 撒迦利亞對天使說:“我怎麼能知道這事呢?我已經老了,我妻子也上了年紀。”

19 天使回答:“我是站在 神面前的加百列,奉差遣向你說話,報給你這好消息。

20 看吧!到了時候我的話必要應驗;因為你不信我的話,你必成為啞巴,直到這些事成就的那一天,才能說話。”

21 眾人等候撒迦利亞;因他在聖殿裡遲遲不出來,覺得奇怪。

22 等到他出來,卻不能講話,竟成了啞巴,不斷地向他們打手式,他們就知道他在聖殿裡見了異象。

23 供職的日子滿了,他就回家去。

24 過了幾天,他妻子以利沙伯懷了孕,隱藏了五個月,說:

25 “主在眷顧的日子,這樣看待我,要把我在人間的羞恥除掉。”

26 天使預言耶穌降生到了第六個月,天使加百列奉 神差遣,往加利利的拿撒勒城去,

27 到了一個童貞女那裡,她已經和大衛家一個名叫約瑟的人訂了婚,童貞女的名字是馬利亞。

28 天使進去,對她說:“恭喜!蒙大恩的女子,主與你同在!”

29 她卻因這話驚慌起來,反覆思想這樣祝賀是甚麼意思。

30 天使說:“馬利亞,不要怕!因你已從 神那裡蒙了恩。

31 你將懷孕生子,要給他起名叫耶穌。

32 他將要被尊為大,稱為至高者的兒子,主 神要把他祖大衛的王位賜給他,

33 他要作王統治雅各家,直到永遠,他的國沒有窮盡。”

34 馬利亞對天使說:“我還沒有出嫁,怎能有這事呢?”

35 天使回答:“聖靈要臨到你,至高者的能力要覆庇你,因此那將要出生的聖者,必稱為 神的兒子。

36 你看,你親戚以利沙伯,被稱為不生育的,在老年也懷了男胎,現在已是第六個月了,

37 因為在 神沒有一件事是不可能的。”

38 馬利亞說:“我是主的婢女,願照你的話成就在我身上!”天使就離開她去了。

39 馬利亞往見以利沙伯後來,馬利亞就起身,急忙向山地去,來到猶大的一座城,

40 進了撒迦利亞的家,向以利沙伯問安。

41 以利沙伯一聽見馬利亞的問安,腹中的胎兒就跳動,以利沙伯也被聖靈充滿,

42 就高聲說:“你在女子中是有福的!你腹中的胎兒也是有福的!

43 我主的母親竟然到我這裡來。這事怎會臨到我呢?

44 你看,你問安的聲音一進我的耳朵,我腹中的胎兒就歡喜跳躍。

45 這相信主傳給她的話必要成就的女子是有福的。”

46 馬利亞尊主為大(參撒上2:1~10)馬利亞說:“我心尊主為大,

47 我靈以 神我的救主為樂,

48 因為他垂顧他使女的卑微,看哪!今後萬代都要稱我為有福。

49 全能者為我行了大事,他的名為聖;

50 他的憐憫世世代代歸與敬畏他的人。

51 他用膀臂施展大能,驅散心裡妄想的狂傲人。

52 他使有權能的失位,叫卑微的升高,

53 讓飢餓的得飽美食,使富足的空手回去。

54 他扶助了他的僕人以色列,為要記念他的憐憫,

55 正如他向我們列祖所說的,恩待亞伯拉罕和他的後裔,直到永遠。”

56 馬利亞和以利沙伯同住約有三個月,就回家去了。

57 施洗約翰出生以利沙伯的產期到了,生了一個兒子。

58 鄰里親戚,聽見主向她大施憐憫,都和她一同歡樂。

59 到了第八天,他們來給孩子行割禮,要照他父親的名字,叫他撒迦利亞。

60 但他母親說:“不可,要叫他約翰。”

61 他們說:“你親族裡沒有叫這名字的。”

62 他們就向孩子的父親打手式,看他要叫他甚麼。

63 他要了一塊寫字版,寫上說:“他的名字是約翰。”眾人都希奇。

64 撒迦利亞的口舌立刻開了,就出聲稱頌 神。

65 住在周圍的人都害怕,這一切事傳遍了整個猶太山地,

66 凡聽見的就把這些事放在心裡,說:“這孩子將會成為怎樣的人呢?因為主的手與他同在。”

67 撒迦利亞的預言他的父親撒迦利亞被聖靈充滿,預言說:

68 “主,以色列的 神,是應當稱頌的,因他眷顧自己的子民,施行救贖,

69 在他僕人大衛家中,為我們興起救恩的角,

70 正如主自古以來藉聖先知口中所說的,

71 救我們脫離仇敵,和恨我們的人的手;

72 向我們列祖施憐憫,記念他的聖約,

73 就是他對我們祖先亞伯拉罕所起的誓,

74 把我們從仇敵手中救拔出來,叫我們可以坦然無懼,用聖潔公義,在他面前一生一世敬拜他。

76 孩子啊,你要稱為至高者的先知,因為你要行在主的面前,預備他的路,

77 使他的子民,因罪得赦,就知道救恩。

78 因我們 神的憐憫,使清晨的陽光從高天臨到我們,

79 光照那坐在黑暗中死蔭裡的人,引導我們的腳,走上平安的路。”

80 這孩子漸漸長大,心靈健壯,住在曠野,直到他在以色列人中公開露面的日子。
