The Power of the Most High Shall Overshadow Thee
And I passed by thee, and saw thee:
and behold thy time was the time of lovers:
and I spread my garment over thee,
and covered thy ignominy. And I swore to thee,
and I entered into a covenant with thee,
saith the Lord God: and thou becamest mine.
Ezekiel 16, 8
Galilee, called Nazareth, to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was
Mary. And the angel being come in, said unto her: Hail, full of grace, the Lord
is with thee: blessed art thou amongst women… And the angel said to her:
Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace with God. Behold thou shalt
conceive in thy womb, and shalt bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name
Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest; and the
Lord God shall give unto him the throne of David his father; and he shall reign
in the house of Jacob for ever. And of his kingdom there shall be no end. And
Mary said to the angel: How shall this be done, because I know not man? And
the angel answering, said to her: The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and
the power of the Most High shall overshadow thee. And therefore also the Holy
which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
Luke 1, 26-35
For your Maker is your husband;
the LORD of hosts is his name;
and your Redeemer the Holy One of Israel;
The God of the whole earth shall he be called.
Isaiah 54, 5
And you shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD am holy,
and have separated you from other people,
that you should be mine.
Leviticus 20, 26
Behold, the days come, said the LORD, that I will make a new
covenant with the house of
Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their
fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; my
covenant which they broke, although I was a husband unto them, says the LORD: But
this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, says
the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will
be their God, and they shall be my people.
Jeremiah 31, 31-33
And in the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a
Galilee, called Nazareth, to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Mary.
And the angel being come in, said unto her: Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee:
blessed art thou amongst women.
Luke 1, 27-28
Vows taken by a married woman
if she is married to a husband, while under her vows or and
thoughtless utterance of her lips by which she has bound herself, and her
husband hears of it, and says nothing to her on the day that he hears; then
her vows shall stand, and her pledges by which she has bound herself
shall stand. But if, on the day that her husband comes to hear of it, he
expresses disapproval, then he shall make void her vow which was on her,
and the thoughtless utterance of her lips, by which she bound herself; and
the LORD will forgive her.”
Vows to afflict herself
vow and any binding oath to afflict herself, her husband may
establish, or her husband may make void. But if her husband says nothing
to her from day to day, then he establishes all her vows, or all her pledges,
that are upon her; he has established them, because he said nothing to her
on the day that he heard of them. But if he makes them null and void after
he has heard of them, then he shall bear her iniquity.”
But after he had considered this, an angel of the LORD
appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David,
do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what
is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.”
Matthew 1, 20
And Mary said to the angel: How shall this be done, because I
know not man? And the
angel answering, said to her: The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the
Most High shall overshadow thee. And therefore also the Holy which shall be born of thee
shall be called the Son of God.
Luke 1, 34-35
The Lord loveth the gates of Zion above all the tabernacles of
Psalm 87, 2
Shall not Zion say: This man and that man is born in her?
and the Highest himself hath founded her.
Psalm 87, 5
“And I will betroth you to me forever;I will betroth you
to me in righteousness and in justice, and in love, and in
mercy. I will betroth you to me in faithfulness; and you shall
know the Lord.”
