Narration (2)
Language: English 
And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from 
Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. And all went to be 
taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up into the 
city of David, which is called Bethlehem; to be taxed with Mary his 
espoused wife, being great with child.

And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished 
that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, 
and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because 
there was no room for them in the inn.
