Behold a virgin shall conceive and bear a Son,
and shall call his name Immanuel, God with us.
Where is he that is born King of the Jews?
For we have seen his star in the east,
and are come to worship him.
He shall be great,
and the Lord God shall give him the throne of his father David,
and he shall reign for ever and ever.
