katapi HOME Luke 1:67 - The Prophesy of Zechariah  Lk.1.67-80 (Hebron)

1 67 And his father Zechari'ah was filled with the Holy Spirit, and prophesied, saying,

1 68 [ Ps.41.13. ] "Blessed be the Lord God of Israel,
for he has visited and redeemed his people,
1 69 and has raised up a horn of salvation for us
in the house of his servant David,
1 70 as he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets from of old,
1 71 that we should be saved from our enemies,
and from the hand of all who hate us;
1 72 to perform the mercy promised to our fathers,
and to remember his holy covenant,
1 73 the oath which he swore to our father Abraham,
1 74 to grant us that we,
being delivered from the hand of our enemies,
might serve him without fear,
1 75 in holiness and righteousness before him
all the days of our life.
1 76 [ Mal.3.1. ] And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High;
for you will go before the Lord to prepare his ways,
1 77 to give knowledge of salvation to his people
in the forgiveness of their sins,
1 78 through the tender mercy of our God,
when the day shall dawn upon Or: whereby the dayspring will visit. Other ancient authorities read: since the dayspring has visited us from on high
1 79 [ Is.9.2, Is.59.8. ] to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death,
to guide our feet into the way of peace."

1 80 And the child grew and became strong in spirit, and he was in the wilderness till the day of his manifestation to Israel.
