Luke 1:54-55

Context

1:54 He has helped his servant Israel, remembering 1  his mercy, 2 

1:55 as he promised 3  to our ancestors, 4  to Abraham and to his descendants 5  forever.”

1 tn Or “because he remembered mercy,” understanding the infinitive as causal.

2 tn Or “his [God’s] loyal love.”

3 tn Grk “as he spoke.” Since this is a reference to the covenant to Abraham, ἐλάλησεν (elalhsen) can be translated in context “as he promised.” God keeps his word.

4 tn Grk “fathers.”

5 tn Grk “his seed” (an idiom for offspring or descendants).
