Luke chapter 1:1-25, 57-80

1
For as much as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us,
2
Even as they delivered them to us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word;
3
It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write to you in order, most excellent Theophilus,
4
That you might know the certainty of those things, wherein you have been instructed.
5
THERE was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.
6
And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.
7
And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years.
8
And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest's office before God in the order of his course,
9
According to the custom of the priest's office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord.
10
And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the time of incense.
11
And there appeared to him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense.
12
And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell on him.
13
But the angel said to him, Fear not, Zacharias: for your prayer is heard; and your wife Elisabeth shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name John.
14
And you shall have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth.
15
For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb.
16
And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God.
17
And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.
18
And Zacharias said to the angel, Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years.
19
And the angel answering said to him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak to you, and to show you these glad tidings.
20
And, behold, you shall be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because you believe not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season.
21
And the people waited for Zacharias, and marveled that he tarried so long in the temple.
22
And when he came out, he could not speak to them: and they perceived that he had seen a vision in the temple: for he beckoned to them, and remained speechless.
23
And it came to pass, that, as soon as the days of his ministration were accomplished, he departed to his own house.
24
And after those days his wife Elisabeth conceived, and hid herself five months, saying,
25
Thus has the Lord dealt with me in the days wherein he looked on me, to take away my reproach among men.
57
Now Elisabeth's full time came that she should be delivered; and she brought forth a son.
58
And her neighbors and her cousins heard how the Lord had showed great mercy on her; and they rejoiced with her.
59
And it came to pass, that on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child; and they called him Zacharias, after the name of his father.
60
And his mother answered and said, Not so; but he shall be called John.
61
And they said to her, There is none of your kindred that is called by this name.
62
And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called.
63
And he asked for a writing table, and wrote, saying, His name is John. And they marveled all.
64
And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spoke, and praised God.
65
And fear came on all that dwelled round about them: and all these sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill country of Judaea.
66
And all they that heard them laid them up in their hearts, saying, What manner of child shall this be! And the hand of the Lord was with him.
67
And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying,
68
Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he has visited and redeemed his people,
69
And has raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David;
70
As he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began:
71
That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us;
72
To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant;
73
The oath which he swore to our father Abraham,
74
That he would grant to us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear,
75
In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.
76
And you, child, shall be called the prophet of the Highest: for you shall go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;
77
To give knowledge of salvation to his people by the remission of their sins,
78
Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high has visited us,
79
To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.
80
And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his showing to Israel.
