Saint Luke 1:26-38

Book of Isaiah 7:10-14. 

The LORD spoke to Ahaz, saying: 
Ask for a sign from the LORD, your God; let it be deep as the nether world, or high as the sky! 
But Ahaz answered, "I will not ask! I will not tempt the LORD!" 
Then he said: Listen, O house of David! Is it not enough for you to weary men, must you also weary my God? 
Therefore the Lord himself will give you this sign: the virgin shall be with child, and bear a son, and shall name him Immanuel. 

Psalms 24(23):1-2.3-4ab.5-6. 

A psalm of David. The earth is the LORD'S and all it holds, the world and those who live there. 
For God founded it on the seas, established it over the rivers. 
Who may go up the mountain of the LORD? Who can stand in his holy place? 
"The clean of hand and pure of heart, who are not devoted to idols, who have not sworn falsely. 

"The clean of hand and pure of heart, who are not devoted to idols, who have not sworn falsely. 
They will receive blessings from the LORD, and justice from their saving God. 
Such are the people that love the LORD, that seek the face of the God of Jacob." Selah 

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 1:26-38. 

The angel Gabriel was sent from God to a town of Galilee called Nazareth,
to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin's name was Mary. 
And coming to her, he said, "Hail, full of grace! The Lord is with you." 
But she was greatly troubled at what was said and pondered what sort of greeting this might be. 
Then the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. 
Behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name him Jesus. 
He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give him the throne of David his father,
and he will rule over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end." 
But Mary said to the angel, "How can this be, since I have no relations with a man?"
And the angel said to her in reply, "The holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. Therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God. 
And behold, Elizabeth, your relative, has also conceived a son in her old age, and this is the sixth month for her who was called barren;
for nothing will be impossible for God." 
Mary said, "Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word." Then the angel departed from her.
