Luke 1:11-20
1:11. There appeared to him an angel of the Lord, standing on the right side of the altar of incense,
1:12. and Zechariah, seeing the angel, was troubled, and fear fell upon him.
1:13. But the angel said to him, “Do not fear, Zechariah, for your prayer has been heard; your wife Elizabeth shall bear you a son, and you shall name him John.
1:14. “You shall have joy and gladness, and many shall rejoice at his birth,
1:15. “for he shall be great before the Lord; he shall drink no wine nor strong drink, and he shall be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother's womb.
1:16. “He shall convert many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God,
1:17. “and he shall go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah that he may turn the hearts of fathers to their children and skeptics to the wisdom of the just, to prepare a perfect people for the Lord.”
1:18. Zechariah said to the angel, “How shall I know this is the case? For I am an old man, and my wife is advanced in years.”
1:19. The angel answered him, “I am Gabriel, who stands before God and am sent to speak to you and to bring you these good tidings.
1:20. “Behold, you shall be dumb and shall not be able to speak until the day these things shall come to pass because you have not believed my words, which shall be fulfilled in their time.”
