The Angels sing songs of praises to God for the birth of Jesus.
One of the angels spoke to the shepherds.
Then, many angels started singing songs of praise to God about the birth of Jesus.
God often used angels to announce important events and many times were used to protect Israel.
The shepherds found Jesus as a newly-born baby [Greek brephos]. Not like the Magi who found a paidion (Greek) for a child older than a new born baby but still under 2 years old.
The Angels praise God
13 Suddenly, a multitude of the Heavenly Army appeared with the angel, praising God by saying, 14 “Glory to God in the highest, and peace on earth to people who enjoy his favor!”
Angels are Messengers or Ambassadors of God.
