Luke 1:68–79

68 Praise the Lord, the God of Israel, h

because He has visited

and provided * redemption for His people. i

69 He has raised up a * horn of salvation j for us k

in the house of His servant David, l

70 just as He spoke by the mouth

of His holy prophets in ancient times; m

71 salvation from our enemies

and from the clutches n of those who hate us.

72 He has dealt mercifully with our fathers o

and remembered His holy covenant p

73 the oath that He swore to our father Abraham. q

He has given us the privilege,

74 since we have been rescued

from our enemies’ clutches, r

to serve Him without fear

75 in holiness and righteousness

in His presence all our days.

76 And child, you will be called

a prophet of the Most High, s

for you will go before the Lord

to prepare His ways, t

77 to give His people knowledge of salvation

through the forgiveness of their sins. u

78 Because of our God’s merciful compassion,

the Dawn from on high v will visit us

79 to shine on those who live in darkness

and the shadow of death, w

to guide our feet into the way of peace.
