CEBCommon English Bible
67John’s father Zechariah was filled with the Holy Spirit and prophesied,
68"Bless the Lord God of Israel
because he has come to help and has delivered his people.
69He has raised up a mighty savior for us in his servant David’s house,
70just as he said through the mouths of his holy prophets long ago.
71He has brought salvation from our enemies
and from the power of all those who hate us.
72He has shown the mercy promised to our ancestors,
and remembered his holy covenant,
73the solemn pledge he made to our ancestor Abraham.
He has granted 74that we would be rescued
from the power of our enemies
so that we could serve him without fear,
75in holiness and righteousness in God’s eyes,
for as long as we live.
