John Is Born

57 Now the time ahad come for Elizabeth to give birth, and she gave birth to a son. 58 Her neighbors and her relatives heard that the Lord had b1displayed His great mercy toward her; and they were rejoicing with her. 59 And it happened that on 2the eighth day they came to circumcise the child, and they were going to call him Zacharias, cafter his father. 60 But his mother answered and said, "No indeed; but 3he shall be called John." 61 And they said to her, "There is no one among your relatives who is called by that name." 62 And they 4made signs to his father, as to what he wanted him called. 63 And he asked for a tablet and wrote as follows, "5His name is John." And they were all astonished. 64 6And at once his mouth was opened and his tongue loosed, and he began to speak in praise of God. 65 Fear came on all those living around them; and all these matters were being talked about in all 7the hill country of Judea. 66 All who heard them kept them in mind, saying, "What then will this child turn out to be?" For 8the hand of the Lord was certainly with him.
