“For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost”
1:1 Forasmuch, indeed, that, many of the Messianic Sofrim, had taken in hand to compile the Sefer (to set forth in order) a declaration of those things are most surely believed (confirmed) among us ,
1:2 Even as they who from the beginning became eye-witnesses and attendants of the Word delivered them to us,
1:3 It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write to you in order, most excellent Theophilos (friend of G_d see also Acts 1:3),
1:4 That you mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein you have been instructed.
1:5 There was in the days of Herodes, the melekh Yehudah, a certain Kohen named Z'kharYah, of the division of Aviyah: and his wife [was] of the banot Aharon, and her name [was] Elisheva.
1:6 And they were both tzadikim before Elohim, having their halacha tamim in all the Mitzvot and Chukim YHVH (יהוה).
1:7 And they had no child, because that Elisheva was barren, and they both were [now] well stricken in years.
1:8 And it came to pass, that while he executed the Kohen's office before Elohim in the order of his course,
1:9 According to the custom of the Kohen's office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the Beit HaMikdash YHVH (יהוה).
1:10 And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the time of incense.
1:11 And there appeared to him an Messenger of YHVH (יהוה) standing on the right side of the altar of incense.
1:12 And when Z'kharYah saw [him], he was troubled, and fear fell upon him.
1:13 But the Messenger said to him:
"Fear not, Z'kharYah: for your tefillah is heard; and your wife Elisheva shall bear you a son, and you shalt call his name Yochanan."
1:14 And you shalt have simcha and gladness; and many shall rejoice at His birth.
1:15 For he shall be great in the sight of YHVH (יהוה), and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Ruach HaKodesh, even from his mother's womb. (Bamidbar 6:3, Sofarim 13:4; Yemiryahu 1;5; Galatians 1;15)
1:16 And many of benai Yisrael shall he turn to YHVH (יהוה) Eloheichem.
1:17 And he shall go before him in the ruach and power of Eli-Yahu, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for YHVH (יהוה).
1:18 And Z'kharYah said to the Messenger, Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years.
1:19 And the Messenger answering said to him:
I am Gavriel, that stand in the presence of Elohim; and I am sent to speak to you, and to proclaim the good news of these things.
1:20 And, Hinei, you shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because you believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season.
1:21 And the people waited for Z'kharYah, and marvelled that he tarried so long in the Beit Ha Mikdash.
1:22 And when he came out, he could not speak to them: and they perceived that he had seen a vision in the Beit Ha Mikdash: for he beckoned to them, and remained speechless.
1:23 And it came to pass, that, as soon as the days of his ministration were accomplished, he departed to his own bayit.
1:24 And after those days his wife Elisheva conceived, and hid herself five months, saying,
1:25 Thus has YHVH (יהוה) dealt with me in the days wherein he looked on [me], to take away my reproach among men.
1:26 And in the sixth month the Messenger Gavriel was sent from Elohim to a city of Galil, named Natzeret,
1:27 To a maiden espoused to a man whose name was Yosef, of the house of David; and the maiden's name [was] Miryam.
1:28 And the Messenger came in to her, and said, Hail, [thou that art] highly favoured, YHVH (יהוה) [is] with you: blessed are you among women.
1:29 And when she saw [him], she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
1:30 And the Messenger said to her, Fear not, Miryam: for you have found favour with Elohim.
1:31 And, behold, you shall conceive in your womb, and bring forth a son, and you shall call His Name shall call His Name Yeshua (ישוע).
1:32 He shall be great, and shall be called Ben ha Elyon: and YHVH (יהוה) Elohim shall give to him the throne of his father David:
1:33 And he shall reign over the house of Yaakov le olam vaed; and of his Malkut there shall be no end.
1:34 Then said Miryam to the Messenger: How can this be, since I do not know a man?
1:35 And the Messenger answered and said to her:
The Ruach HaKodesh shall come upon you, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow you:
Therefore also that Set Apart thing which shall be born of you shall be called Ben Elohim.
1:36 And, Hinnei, your cousin Elisheva, she has also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.
1:37 For with Elohim nothing shall be impossible.
1:38 And Miryam said, Hinnei the servant of YHVH (יהוה); be it to me according to your word. And the Malakh departed from her.
1:39 And Miryam arose in those days, and went into the hill country with have, into a city of Yehudah;
1:40 And entered into the Beit Z'kharYah, and saluted Elisheva.
1:41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisheva heard the Birkat Shalom from Miryam, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisheva was filled with the Ruach HaKodesh:
1:42 And she spoke out with a loud voice, and said:
Blessed are you among women, and blessed [is] the fruit of your womb.
1:43 And whence [is] this to me, that the mother of my Adoni should come to me?
1:44 For, Behold, as soon as the voice of your birkat Shalom sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for simcha.
1:45 And blessed [is] she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from YHVH (יהוה).
Miryam hallei shir
(cf Shemuel Alef 2:1-10)
1:46 And Miryam said, My soul doth magnify YHVH (יהוה),
1:47 And my ruach has rejoiced in Elohim my Moshia.
1:48 For he has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, Hinei, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
1:49 For he that is Mighty One has done great things for me; and Kadosh [is] His Name.
1:50 And His rachamim (mercy) [is] on them that fear Him from generation to generation.
1:51 He has shewed strength with his arm; He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
1:52 He has put down the mighty from [their] seats, and exalted them of low degree.
1:53 He has filled the hungry with tov things; and the rich He has sent empty away.
1:54 He has helped his eved Yisrael, in remembrance of [his] rachamim (mercy);
1:55 As he spoke to our fathers, to Avraham, and to his seed for ever. (Compare Micah 7:20, Psalms 98:3)
1:56 And Miryam stayed with her about three months, and returned to her own house.
1:57 Now Elisheva's full time came that she should be delivered; and she brought forth a Son.
1:58 And her neighbours and her cousins heard how YHVH (יהוה) had shewed great rachamim (mercy) upon her; and they rejoiced with her.
1:59 And it came to pass, that on the eighth day they came to Brit Milah the child; and they called him Z'kharYah, after the name of his father.
1:60 And his mother answered and said, Not [so]; but he shall be called Yochanan.
1:61 And they said to her, There is none of your kindred that is called by this name.
1:62 And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called.
1:63 And he asked for a writing table, and wrote, saying, His name is Yochanan. And they marvelled all.
1:64 And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue [loosed], and he spoke, and praised Elohim.
1:65 And fear came on all that dwelt round about them: and all these sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill country of Yehudah.
1:66 And all they that heard [them] laid [them] up in their hearts, saying, What manner of child shall this be! And the hand of YHVH (יהוה) was with him.
1:67 And his father Z'kharYah was filled with the Ruach HaKodesh, and prophesied, saying:
all the days of our life.
And you, child, shall be called ha Navi ha Elyon:
To spreading the knowledge of Yeshuat Eloheinu to His people by the deliverance of their averot (sins),
1:80 And the child grew, and waxed strong in ruach, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing to Yisrael.
