2:25 Now68 there was a man in Jerusalem69 named Simeon who was righteous70 and devout, looking for the restoration71 of Israel, and the Holy Spirit72 was upon him. 2:26 It73 had been revealed74 to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die75 before76 he had seen the Lord’s Christ.77 2:27 So78 Simeon,79 directed by the Spirit,80 came into the temple courts,81 and when the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what was customary according to the law,82 2:28 Simeon83 took him in his arms and blessed God, saying,84
2:30 For my eyes have seen your salvation90
2:31 that you have prepared in the presence of all peoples:91
2:32 a light,92
for revelation to the Gentiles,
and for glory93 to your people Israel.”
