18“How can I know this? ” Zechariah asked the angel. “For I am an old man, and my wife is well along in years.” # Lit in her days
19The angel answered him, “I am Gabriel, # Dn 8:16; 9:21; Lk 1:26 who stands in the presence of God, # Mt 18:10 and I was sent to speak to you and tell you this good news. 20Now listen! You will become silent and unable to speak until the day these things take place, because you did not believe my words, which will be fulfilled in their proper time.”
