Gabriel Predicts John’s Birth

In the days of King Herod of Judea, there was a priest of Abijah’s division[a] named Zechariah. His wife was from the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elizabeth. Both were righteous in God’s sight, living without blame according to all the commands and requirements of the Lord. But they had no children[b] because Elizabeth could not conceive,[c] and both of them were well along in years.[d]
