And an angel of the Lord (A)appeared to them, and (B)the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. 10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all (C)the people. 11 For (D)unto you is born this day in (E)the city of David (F)a Savior, who is (G)Christ (H)the Lord. 12 And (I)this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby (J)wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel (K)a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

14 (L)“Glory to God (M)in the highest,
    (N)and on earth (O)peace (P)among those with whom he is pleased!”[a]
