Luke 2:25-40 [ Verse 25 in Original: Greek ]
             [ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
25 And there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon; and this man was righteous R116 and devout, looking R117 for the consolation of Israel; and the Holy Spirit was upon him. 26 And it R118 had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see R119 death before he had seen the Lord's Christ. F54 27 And he came in the Spirit into the temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to R120 F55 carry out for Him the custom of the Law, 28 then he took Him into his arms, and blessed God, and said, 29 "Now Lord, You are releasing Your bond-servant to depart in peace, According R121 to Your word; 30 For my eyes have seen R122 Your salvation, 31 Which You have prepared in the presence of all peoples, 32 A R123 LIGHT OF REVELATION TO THE GENTILES, And the glory of Your people Israel." 33 And His father and mother R124 were amazed at the things which were being said about Him. 34 And Simeon blessed them and said to Mary His R125 mother, "Behold, this Child is appointed for the R126 fall and rise F57 of many in Israel, and for a sign to be opposed-- 35 and a sword will pierce even your own soul--to the end that thoughts from many hearts may be revealed." 36 And there was a prophetess, R127 Anna F58 the daughter of Phanuel, of the R128 tribe of Asher. She was advanced in years F59 and R129 had lived with her husband seven years after her marriage, F60 37 and then as a widow to the age of eighty-four. She never left the temple, serving night and day with fastings R130 and prayers. 38 At that very moment F61 she came up and began giving thanks to God, and continued to speak of Him to all those who were looking R131 for the redemption of Jerusalem. 39 When they had performed everything according to the Law of the Lord, they returned to Galilee, to their R132 own city of Nazareth. 40 The R133 Child continued to grow and become strong, increasing F62 in wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him.
