Luke 1:46-55
[46] And Mary said,

“My soul magnifies the Lord,
[47] and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
[48] for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant.
For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed;
[49] for he who is mighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his name.
[50] And his mercy is for those who fear him
from generation to generation.
[51] He has shown strength with his arm;
he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts;
[52] he has brought down the mighty from their thrones
and exalted those of humble estate;
[53] he has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.
[54] He has helped his servant Israel,
in remembrance of his mercy,
[55] as he spoke to our fathers,
to Abraham and to his offspring forever.” (ESV)

We believe in one God, the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth, of all things
visible and invisible. And in one Lord Jesus
Christ, the only Son of God, begotten from
the Father before all ages, God from God,
Light from Light, true God from true God,
begotten, not made; of the same essence
as the Father. Through him all things were
made. For us and for our salvation he came down
from heaven; he became incarnate by the
Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary, and was
made human. He was crucified for us under
Pontius Pilate; he suffered and was buried.
The third day he rose again, according to
the Scriptures. He ascended to heaven and
is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again with glory to judge
the living and the dead. His kingdom will
never end.

And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord,
the giver of life. He proceeds from the Father
and the Son, and with the Father and the
Son is worshiped and glorified. He spoke
through the prophets. We believe in one holy
catholic and apostolic church. We affirm one
baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look
forward to the resurrection of the dead, and
to life in the world to come. Amen.

Matthew 2:13-23
[13] Now when they had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Rise, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you, for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him.” [14] And he rose and took the child and his mother by night and departed to Egypt [15] and remained there until the death of Herod. This was to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet, “Out of Egypt I called my son.”

[16] Then Herod, when he saw that he had been tricked by the wise men, became furious, and he sent and killed all the male children in Bethlehem and in all that region who were two years old or under, according to the time that he had ascertained from the wise men. [17] Then was fulfilled what was spoken by the prophet Jeremiah:

[18] “A voice was heard in Ramah,
weeping and loud lamentation,
Rachel weeping for her children;
she refused to be comforted, because they are no more.”

[19] But when Herod died, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt, [20] saying, “Rise, take the child and his mother and go to the land of Israel, for those who sought the child's life are dead.” [21] And he rose and took the child and his mother and went to the land of Israel. [22] But when he heard that Archelaus was reigning over Judea in place of his father Herod, he was afraid to go there, and being warned in a dream he withdrew to the district of Galilee. [23] And he went and lived in a city called Nazareth, so that what was spoken by the prophets might be fulfilled, that he would be called a Nazarene. (ESV)
