8 In that region there were shepherds living in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9Then an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.
10But the angel said to them, Do not be afraid; for seeI am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people:
11to you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, who is the Messiah,* the Lord.
12This will be a sign for you: you will find a child wrapped in bands of cloth and lying in a manger.
13And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host,* praising God and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace among those whom he favours!*
