2 Revised Standard Version Passage

8And in that region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.The Shepherds and the Angels Lk.2.8-21 (Bethlehem)
9And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with fear. 
10And the angel said to them, "Be not afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which will come to all the people; 
11for to you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord. 
12And this will be a sign for you: you will find a babe wrapped in swaddling cloths 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,
and on earth peace among men with whom he is pleased! Other ancient authorities read: peace, good will among men"
15When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us." 
16And they went with haste, and found Mary and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. 
17And when they saw it they made known the saying which had been told them concerning this child; 
18and all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them. 
19But Mary kept all these things, pondering them in her heart. 
20And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them. 
21And at the end of eight days, when he was circumcised, he was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before he was conceived in the womb.
