For (A)I am an old man, and my wife is advanced in her [a]years.” 19 The angel answered and said to him, “I am (B)Gabriel, who [b](C)stands in the presence of God, and I was sent to speak to you and to bring you this good news. 20 And behold, you will be silent and unable to speak until the day when these things take place, because you did not believe my words, which will be fulfilled at their proper time.”
