2:26. He had received an answer from the Holy Spirit that he should not see death before he had seen the Christ of the Lord.
2:27. He came by the Spirit into the Temple, and when His parents brought in the Child Jesus, to do for Him according to the custom of the law,
2:28. he also took Him into his arms and blessed God and said,
2:29. “Now You may dismiss Your servant, O Lord, according to Your word in peace,
2:30. “because my eyes have seen Your salvation,
2:31. “which You have prepared before the face of all peoples,
2:32. “a light for the revelation to the Gentiles and the glory of Your people Israel.”
2:33. The Child's father and mother were wondering at those things which were spoken concerning Him.
2:34. Simeon blessed them and said to Mary His mother, “Behold, this Child is destined for the fall and for the resurrection of many in Israel and to be a sign which shall be opposed.
2:35. “Your own soul a sword shall pierce, that many hearts may reveal their thoughts.”
