5 In [a]the [b]time of [c]Herod King of Judea, there was a certain Priest named Zacharias, of the [d]course of Abijah: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elizabeth.
6 Both were [e]just before God, and [f]walked in all the [g]commandments and ordinances of the Lord, [h]without reproof.
7 And they had no child, because that Elizabeth was barren: and both were well stricken in age.
Luke 1:5John who was another Elijah, and appointed to be herald of Christ, coming of the stock of Aaron, and of two famous and blameless parents, hath showed in his conception, which was against the course of nature, a double miracle, to the end that men should be more readily stirred up to the hearing of his preaching, according to the forewarning of the Prophets.
Luke 1:5Word for word, in the days: so speak the Hebrews, giving us to understand, how short and frail a thing the power of princes is.
