The Presentation

Luk 2:22  And when the days of their purification according to the law of Moses were fulfilled, they brought him up to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord

Luk 2:23  (as it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord),

Luk 2:24  and to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.

Luk 2:25  And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon; and this man was righteous and devout, looking for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Spirit was upon him.

Luk 2:26  And it had been revealed unto him by the Holy Spirit, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ.

Luk 2:27  And he came in the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, that they might do concerning him after the custom of the law,

Luk 2:28  then he received him into his arms, and blessed God, and said,

Luk 2:29  Now lettest thou thy servant depart, Lord, According to thy word, in peace;

Luk 2:30  For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,

Luk 2:31  Which thou hast prepared before the face of all peoples;

Luk 2:32  A light for revelation to the Gentiles, And the glory of thy people Israel.
