28b Ave [Maria], gratia plena, Dominus tecum;
29b Quae est ista salutatio,
30b Ne timeas Maria, invenisti [enim] gratiam apud Deum,
31a Ecce concipies [in utero] et paries Filium Dei.
34b Quomodo fiet istud? Quoniam virum non conosco,
35b Spiritus sanctus superveniet in te, et virtus Altissimi obumbrabit tibi.
38b Ecce ancilla Domini: fiat mihi secundum verbum tuum.
32b Dabit illi Dominus Deus sedem David patris eius et regnabit in Domo Iacob in aeternum.
33 et regni eius non erit finis.

29b What manner of salutation is this?
30b Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
31a And, behold, thou shalt conceive [in thy womb], and bring forth the Son of God.
34b How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
35b The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee.
38b Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word.
