Luke 2 - GNT
(Good News Translation)
1At that time Emperor Augustus ordered a census
to be taken throughout the Roman Empire.
3Everyone, then, went to register himself,
each to his own hometown.
4aJoseph went from the town of Nazareth in Galilee
to the town of Bethlehem in Judea,
the birthplace of King David.
5He went to register with Mary,
who was promised in marriage to him.
She was pregnant,
6and while they were in Bethlehem,
the time came for her to have her Baby.
7She gave birth to her first Son,
wrapped Him in cloths and laid Him in a manger -
there was no room for them to stay in the inn.
