kjv@Luke:2:25 @ And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him.
kjv@Luke:2:26 @ And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ.
kjv@Luke:2:27 @ And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law,
kjv@Luke:2:28 @ Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said,
kjv@Luke:2:29 @ Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word:
kjv@Luke:2:30 @ For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
kjv@Luke:2:31 @ Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;
kjv@Luke:2:32 @ A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.
kjv@Luke:2:33 @ And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him.
kjv@Luke:2:34 @ And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against;
kjv@Luke:2:35 @ (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.
kjv@Luke:2:36 @ And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity;
kjv@Luke:2:37 @ And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.
kjv@Luke:2:38 @ And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem.
kjv@Luke:2:39 @ And when they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city Nazareth.
kjv@Luke:2:40 @ And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.
kjv@Luke:2:41 @ Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the passover.
kjv@Luke:2:42 @ And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast.
kjv@Luke:2:43 @ And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it.
kjv@Luke:2:44 @ But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day's journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance.
kjv@Luke:2:45 @ And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him.
kjv@Luke:2:46 @ And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions.
kjv@Luke:2:47 @ And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.
kjv@Luke:2:48 @ And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.
kjv@Luke:2:49 @ And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?
kjv@Luke:2:50 @ And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them.
kjv@Luke:2:51 @ And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart.
kjv@Luke:2:52 @ And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.
