The Shepherds and the Angels

In the same region, shepherds were staying out in the fields and keeping watch at night over their flock. Then an angel of the Lord(A) stood before them,(B) and the glory of the Lord(C) shone around them, and they were terrified.[a] 10 But the angel said to them, “Don’t be afraid,(D) for look, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people:[b] 11 Today in the city of David a Savior(E) was born for you, who is the Messiah,(F) the Lord.(G) 12 This will be the sign for you:(H) You will find a baby wrapped tightly in cloth and lying in a manger.”
