||Luke 2 - GNT|
(Good News Translation)
|8||There were some shepherds in that part of the country|
who were spending the night in the fields,
taking care of their flocks.
|9||An angel of the Lord appeared to them,|
and the glory of the Lord shone over them.
They were terribly afraid,
|10||but the angel said to them,|
"Don't be afraid!
I am here with good news for you,
which will bring great joy to all the people.
|11||This very day in David's town|
your Savior was born - Christ the Lord!
|12||And this is what will prove it to you:|
you will find a Baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."
|13||Suddenly a great army of heaven's angels appeared|
with the angel, singing praises to God:
|14||"Glory to God in the highest heaven,|
and peace on earth to those with whom he is pleased!"
