Unchecked Copy Box Luk 1:48

Tools specific to Luk 1:71

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 1:71

Salvation from our enemies, And out of the hand of all hating us,

Tools specific to Luk 1:72

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 1:72

To do kindness with our fathers, And to be mindful of His holy covenant,

Tools specific to Luk 1:73

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 1:73

An oath that He sware to Abraham our father,

Tools specific to Luk 1:74

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 1:74

To give to us, without fear, Out of the hand of our enemies having been delivered,

Tools specific to Luk 1:75

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 1:75

To serve Him, in holiness and righteousness Before Him, all the days of our life.

Tools specific to Luk 1:76

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 1:76

And thou, child, Prophet of the Highest Shalt thou be called; For thou shalt go before the face of the Lord, To prepare His ways.

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 1:77

To give knowledge of salvation to His people In remission of their sins,

Tools specific to Luk 1:78

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 1:78

Tools specific to Luk 1:80

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 1:80

And the child grew, and was strengthened in spirit, and he was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.
