67And his father Zechari'ah was filled with the Holy Spirit, and prophesied, saying,
The Prophesy of Zechariah Lk.1.67-80 (Hebron)
68"Blessed be the Lord God of Israel,
for he has visited and redeemed his people,
- Blessed be the Lord God of Israel Lk.1.68 | Ps.41.13
69and has raised up a horn of salvation for us
in the house of his servant David,
 
70as he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets from of old,
 
71that we should be saved from our enemies,
and from the hand of all who hate us;
 
72to perform the mercy promised to our fathers,
and to remember his holy covenant,
 
73the oath which he swore to our father Abraham,
 
74to grant us that we,
being delivered from the hand of our enemies,
might serve him without fear,
 
75in holiness and righteousness before him
all the days of our life.
 
76And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High;
for you will go before the Lord to prepare his ways,
- for you will go before the Lord to prepare his ways Lk.1.76 | Mal.3.1
77to give knowledge of salvation to his people
in the forgiveness of their sins,
 
78through 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
 
79to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death,
to guide our feet into the way of peace."
