22 When the time came for the purification rites required by the Law of Moses, Joseph and Mary
took him to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord 23 (as it is written in the Law of the Lord,
“Every firstborn male is to be consecrated to the Lord”), 24 and to offer a sacrifice in keeping
with what is said in the Law of the Lord: “a pair of doves or two young pigeons.”
25 Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout.
He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was on him.
26 It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he
had seen the Lord’s Messiah. 27 Moved by the Spirit, he went into the temple
courts. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the
custom of the Law required, 28 Simeon took him in his arms and praised
God, saying: 29 “Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you may now
dismiss your servant in peace. 30 For my eyes have seen your
salvation, 31 which you have prepared in the sight of all nations:
32 a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and the glory of your
people Israel.” 33 The child’s father and mother marveled
at what was said about him. 34 Then Simeon blessed
them and said to Mary, his mother: “This child is destined
to cause the falling and rising of many in Israel, and to be a
sign that will be spoken against, 35 so that the thoughts of
many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your own
soul too.” 36 There was also a prophet, Anna, the daughter of
Penuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was very old; she had
lived with her husband seven years after her marriage,
37 and then was a widow until she was eighty-four.
She never left the temple but worshiped night and day,
fasting and praying. 38 Coming up to them at that very moment,
she gave thanks to God and spoke about the child to all
who were looking forward to the redemption of Jerusalem.
