Luke 1 (Layman's NT)
28 And the Angel being come in, said unto her: Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee: Blessed art thou among women.
29 Who having heard, was troubled at his saying, and thought with herself what manner of salutation this should be.
30 And the Angel said to her: Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace with God.
31 Behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and shalt bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name JESUS.
32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the most High,
and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of David his father: and he shall reign in the house of Jacob for ever,
33 And of his kingdom there shall be no end.
Ephesians 1 (Layman's NT)
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord JESUS CHRIST,
who hath blessed us with spiritual blessings in heavenly places, in Christ.
4 As he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and unspotted in his sight in charity.
5 Who hath predestinated us unto the adoption of children through JESUS CHRIST unto himself;
according to the purpose of his will:
6 Unto the praise of the glory of his grace, in which he hath graced us in his beloved Son.
7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the remission of sins, according to the rices of his grace.
8 Which hath super-abounded in us in all wisdom and prudence.
9 That he might make known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure, which he hath purposed in him,
10 In the dispensation of the fulness of times, to re-establish all things in Christ, that are in heaven and on earth, in him.
Hebrews 1 (Layman's NT)
1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spoke in times past to the fathers by the prophets, last of all,
2 In these days hath spoken to us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the world.
3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the figure of his substance, and upholding all things by the word of his power,
making purgation of sins, sitteth on the right hand of the majesty on high;
4 being made so much better than the angels, as he hath inherited a more excellent name than they.
5 For to which of the angels hath he said at any time:
Thou art my son; to-day I have begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son?
