“Now there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon, and this man was righteous and devout. . . . And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he should not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. And inspired by the Spirit he came into the Temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him according to the custom of the law, he took him up in his arms and blessed God and said, ‘Lord, now lettest thou servant depart in peace, according to thy word; for mine eyes have seen thy salvation, which thou has prepared in the presence of all peoples’. . . .”
Luke Chapter 2.
