Luke 2/1: And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.

2: (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

3: And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

4: And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

5: To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

6: And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

7: And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

21: And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called JESUS.

39: And when they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city Nazareth.

40: And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.

42: And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem, after the custom of the feast.

43: And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it.

44: But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day's journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintances.

45: And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him.
