Do not be afraid (Lk 1:30-1:30)

“The angel

Said to her.

‘Do not be afraid!

Mary!

You have found

Favor

With God!’”

 

καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ἄγγελος αὐτῇ Μὴ φοβοῦ, Μαριάμ· εὗρες γὰρ χάριν παρὰ τῷ Θεῷ·

 

Luke, as in Matthew, said that the angel Gabriel was reassuring Mary, just as the angel had reassured Joseph.  Gabriel told her (καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ἄγγελος αὐτῇ), Mary, not to be afraid (Μὴ φοβοῦ, Μαριάμ) because she had found favor or grace with God (εὗρες γὰρ χάριν παρὰ τῷ Θεῷ).  Everything was going to be okay.
