Luke 1:68–79

68 Blessed is the Lord, the God of Israel,ad

because he has visited

and provided redemption for his people.ae

69 He has raised up a horn of salvation for usaf

in the house of his servant David,a

70 just as he spoke by the mouth

of his holy prophets in ancient times;b

71 salvation from our enemies

and from the hand of those who hate us.

72 He has dealt mercifully with our ancestorsc

and remembered his holy covenantd

73 the oath that he swore to our father Abraham.e

He has given us the privilege,

74 since we have been rescued

from the hand of our enemies,

to serve him without fear

75 in holiness and righteousness

in his presence all our days.

76 And you, child, will be called

a prophet of the Most High,f

for you will go before the Lord

to prepare his ways,g

77 to give his people knowledge of salvation

through the forgiveness of their sins.h

78 Because of our God’s merciful compassion,

the dawn from on highi will visit us

79 to shine on those who live in darkness

and the shadow of death,j

to guide our feet into the way of peace.
