Excerpt

gination of their hearts. He hath put down the mighty from their seat: and hath exalted the humble and meek. He hath filled the hungry with good things: and the rich he hath sent empty away. He remembering his mercy hath holpen his servant Israel: as he promised to our forefathers, Abraham and his seed, forever.

Enter JOSEPH from rear L.

JOSEPH. For hours I've trudged the street in fruitless quest, Here is an inn, mayhap at last we'll rest.

Enter DEBORAH from the inn.

MARY. Husband, I'm faint; I can no farther go. Methinks I'll rest me here upon this loe.

(Sits in front of the manger.)

JOSEPH (assisting her). Have courage, Mary, here's the hostess here.

(Comes to DEBORAH at right.)

We'd lodge with thee tonight.

DEBORAH. Alas, I fear My inn is crowded to the very wall, Soldiers and scribes, the rich, the great, the small!

JOSEPH. Is there room for us? My wife is ill.
