Luke 2:16-26 (Weymouth New Testament)

View In My Bible
16 So they made haste and came and found Mary and Joseph, with the babe lying in the manger. 17 And when they saw the child, they told what had been said to them about Him; 18 and all who listened were astonished at what the shepherds told them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things, often dwelling on them in her mind. 20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all that they had heard and seen in accordance with the announcement made to them. 21 When eight days had passed and the time for circumcising Him had come, He was called JESUS, the name given Him by the angel before His conception in the womb. 22 And when the days for their purification appointed by the Law of Moses had passed, they took Him up to Jerusalem to present Him to the Lord-- 23 as it is written in the Law of the Lord: "Every first-born male shall be called holy to the Lord." 24 And they also offered a sacrifice as commanded in the Law of the Lord, "a pair of turtle doves or two young pigeons." 25 Now there was a man in Jerusalem of the name of Symeon, an upright and God-fearing man, who was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. 26 To him it had been revealed by the Holy Spirit that he should not see death until he had seen the Lord's Anointed One.
