Luke 1:13 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

13 But the angel said to him, “Do not be afraid,[a] Zechariah, because your prayer has been heard. Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall name him John.

Footnotes:

  1. 1:13 Do not be afraid: a stereotyped Old Testament phrase spoken to reassure the recipient of a heavenly vision (Gn 15:1; Jos 1:9; Dn 10:12, 19 and elsewhere in Lk 1:30; 2:10). You shall name him John: the name means “Yahweh has shown favor,” an indication of John’s role in salvation history.
