Luke 2:20-22 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

20 As the shepherds returned to their flock, they glorified and praised God for everything they had seen and heard. Everything happened the way the angel had told them.

Jesus’ Parents Obey Moses’ Teachings

21 Eight days after his birth, the child was circumcised and named Jesus. This was the name the angel had given him before his mother became pregnant.

22 After the days required by Moses’ Teachings to make a mother clean[a] had passed, Joseph and Mary went to Jerusalem. They took Jesus to present him to the Lord.

Footnotes:

  1. Luke 2:22 “Clean” refers to anything that Moses’ Teachings say is presentable to God.
