From Matthew Chapter 1
1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary
was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child
of the Holy Ghost.
1:19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her
a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.
1:20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the LORD
appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to
take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the
1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS:
for he shall save his people from their sins.
1:22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of
the Lord by the prophet, saying,
1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and
they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
1:24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had
bidden him, and took unto him his wife:
1:25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he
called his name JESUS.
From Isaiah Chapter 7
7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin
shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
From Isaiah Chapter 61
61:1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed
me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the
brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the
prison to them that are bound;
61:2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance
of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
61:3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for
ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of
heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of
the LORD, that he might be glorified.
From Micah Chapter 5
5:2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands
of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in
Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.
From Isaiah 53:2
53:2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of
a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him,
there is no beauty that we should desire him.
From Genesis Chapter 22
22:17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply
thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea
shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;
22:18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because
thou hast obeyed my voice.
From Jeremiah Chapter 23
23:5 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a
righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute
judgment and justice in the earth.
From Isaiah Chapter 42
42:7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and
them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.
From Isaiah Chapter 53
53:3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted
with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and
we esteemed him not.
53:8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his
generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the
transgression of my people was he stricken.
From Psalms Chapter 22
22:1 My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from
helping me, and from the words of my roaring?
22:2 O my God, I cry in the day time, but thou hearest not; and in the night
season, and am not silent.
22:3 But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
22:4 Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.
22:5 They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and
were not confounded.
22:6 But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the
22:7 All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they
shake the head, saying,
22:8 He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him,
seeing he delighted in him.
22:9 But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope
when I was upon my mother's breasts.
22:10 I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother's
22:11 Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.
22:12 Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me
22:13 They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring
22:14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my
heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.
22:15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my
jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
22:16 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed
me: they pierced my hands and my feet.
22:17 I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.
22:18 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.
22:19 But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to help
22:20 Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog.
22:21 Save me from the lion's mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns
of the unicorns.
22:22 I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the
congregation will I praise thee.
22:23 Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify
him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.
22:24 For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted;
neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard.
22:25 My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my
vows before them that fear him.
22:26 The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that
seek him: your heart shall live for ever.
22:27 All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and
all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.
22:28 For the kingdom is the LORD's: and he is the governor among the
22:29 All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that
go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own
22:30 A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a
22:31 They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people
that shall be born, that he hath done this.
From John Chapter 1

received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that the LORD God
might dwell among them.
From Acts Chapter 1
1:9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up;
and a cloud received him out of their sight.
1:10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold,
two men stood by them in white apparel;
1:11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven?
this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in
like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
