2 Revised Standard Version Passage

29"Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace,
according to thy word;
Song of Simeon Odes.12.29-32 |
30for mine eyes have seen thy salvation
31which thou hast prepared in the presence of all peoples,
32a light for revelation to the Gentiles,
and for glory to thy people Israel."
33And his father and his mother marveled at what was said about him; 
34and Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother,
"Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising of many in Israel,
and for a sign that is spoken against
35(and a sword will pierce through your own soul also),
that thoughts out of many hearts may be revealed."
36And there was a prophetess, Anna, the daughter of Phan'u-el, of the tribe of Asher; she was of a great age, having lived with her husband seven years from her virginity, 
37and as a widow till she was eighty-four. She did not depart from the temple, worshipping with fasting and prayer night and day. 
38And coming up at that very hour she gave thanks to God, and spoke of him to all who were looking for the redemption of Jerusalem. 
39And when they had performed everything according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city, Nazareth.The Return to Nazareth Lk.2.39-40 (Nazareth)
40And the child grew and became strong, filled with wisdom; and the favor of God was upon him. 
41Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the Passover.The Boy Jesus in the Temple Lk.2.41-52 (Jerusalem)
42And when he was twelve years old, they went up according to custom; 
43and when the feast was ended, as they were returning, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem. His parents did not know it, 
44but supposing him to be in the company they went a day's journey, and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintances; 
45and when they did not find him, they returned to Jerusalem, seeking him. 
46After three days they found him in the temple, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions; 
47and all who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers. 
48And when they saw him they were astonished; and his mother said to him, "Son, why have you treated us so? Behold, your father and I have been looking for you anxiously." 
49And he said to them, "How is it that you sought me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father's house?"
