1:67And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying,
1:68Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people,
1:69And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David;
1:70As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began:
1:71That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us;
1:72To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant;
1:73The oath which he sware to our father Abraham,
1:74That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear,
1:75In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.
1:76And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;
1:77To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins,
1:78Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us,
1:79To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.
1:80And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.
