Luke 1:5-7 The Passion Translation (TPT)
Angelic Prophecy of the Prophet John’s Birth
5 During the reign of King Herod the Great over Judea, there was a Jewish priest named Zechariah[a] who served in the temple as part of the priestly order of Abijah.[b] His wife, Elizabeth, was also from a family of priests, being a direct descendant of Aaron. 6 They were both lovers of God, living virtuously and following the commandments of the Lord fully. 7 But they were childless since Elizabeth was barren, and now they both were quite old.
