Luke 1:67 New English Translation (NET Bible)

Zechariah’s Praise and Prediction

67 Then[a] his father Zechariah was filled with the Holy Spirit and prophesied,[b]


  1. Luke 1:67 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “then” to indicate the implied sequence of events within the narrative.
  2. Luke 1:67 tn Grk “and he prophesied, saying.” The participle λέγων (legōn) is redundant and has not been translated.sn Prophesied. The reference to prophecy reflects that Zechariah is enabled by the Spirit to speak God’s will. He does so in this case through a praise psalm, which calls for praise and then gives the reason why God should be praised.
