Luke 2

25 And 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.

26 And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord's Christ.

27 And he came in the Spirit into the temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to carry out for Him the custom of the Law,

28 then he took Him into his arms, and blessed God, and said,

29 'Now Lord, You are releasing Your bond-servant to depart in peace, According to Your word;

30 For my eyes have seen Your salvation,

31 Which You have prepared in the presence of all peoples,

32 A LIGHT OF REVELATION TO THE GENTILES, And the glory of Your people Israel.'

33 And His father and mother were amazed at the things which were being said about Him.

34 And Simeon blessed them and said to Mary His mother, 'Behold, this Child is appointed for the fall and rise of many in Israel, and for a sign to be opposed--

35 and a sword will pierce even your own soul--to the end that thoughts from many hearts may be revealed.'




The Apocrypha

Please note that, if you want a book from the Apocrypha (1 Esdras, 2 Esdras, Greek Additions to Esther, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees, Tobit, Judith, Wisdom of Solomon, Sirach, Baruch, Epistle of Jeremiah, Susannah, Azariah, Manasseh, Bel and the Dragon) they are currently available only by choosing "Apocrypha - King James Version".

Other than Epistle of Jeremiah, you only need the first five letters of the book name (and actually, in some cases you can use just the first three or four, e.g. "Bel"). For the Greek Additions to Ester, you can use "Greek" as the book name. For Ecclesiasticus, please use its alternate name, "Sirach".
