The birth of Christ. His presentation in the temple. Simeon's prophecy. Christ at twelve years of age, is found amongst the doctors.

[1] And it came to pass, that in those days there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that the whole world should be enrolled.
Factum est autem in diebus illis, exiit edictum a Caesare Augusto ut describeretur universus orbis.

[2] This enrolling was first made by Cyrinus, the governor of Syria.
Haec descriptio prima facta est a praeside Syriae Cyrino :

[3] And all went to be enrolled, every one into his own city.
et ibant omnes ut profiterentur singuli in suam civitatem.

[45] And not finding him, they returned into Jerusalem, seeking him.
Et non invenientes, regressi sunt in Jerusalem, requirentes eum.

[46] And it came to pass, that, after three days, they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, hearing them, and asking them questions.
Et factum est, post triduum invenerunt illum in templo sedentem in medio doctorum, audientem illos, et interrogantem eos.

[47] And all that heard him were astonished at his wisdom and his answers.
Stupebant autem omnes qui eum audiebant, super prudentia et responsis ejus.

[48] And seeing him, they wondered. And his mother said to him: Son, why hast thou done so to us? behold thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.
Et videntes admirati sunt. Et dixit mater ejus ad illum : Fili, quid fecisti nobis sic? ecce pater tuus et ego dolentes quaerebamus te.

[49] And he said to them: How is it that you sought me? did you not know, that I must be about my father's business?
Et ait ad illos : Quid est quod me quaerebatis? nesciebatis quia in his quae Patris mei sunt, oportet me esse?

[50] And they understood not the word that he spoke unto them.
Et ipsi non intellexerunt verbum quod locutus est ad eos.

[51] And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject to them. And his mother kept all these words in her heart.
Et descendit cum eis, et venit Nazareth : et erat subditus illis. Et mater ejus conservabat omnia verba haec in corde suo.

[52] And Jesus advanced in wisdom, and age, and grace with God and men.
Et Jesus proficiebat sapientia, et aetate, et gratia apud Deum et homines.
