Luke 1:54

Context

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

Luke 1:71-72

Context

1:71 that we should be saved 3  from our enemies, 4 

and from the hand of all who hate us.

1:72 He has done this 5  to show mercy 6  to our ancestors, 7 

and to remember his holy covenant 8 

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

2 tn Or “his [God’s] loyal love.”

3 tn Grk “from long ago, salvation.”

4 sn The theme of being saved from our enemies is like the release Jesus preached in Luke 4:18-19. Luke’s narrative shows that one of the enemies in view is Satan and his cohorts, with the grip they have on humanity.

5 tn The words “He has done this” (referring to the raising up of the horn of salvation from David’s house) are not in the Greek text, but are supplied to allow a new sentence to be started in the translation. The Greek sentence is lengthy and complex at this point, while contemporary English uses much shorter sentences.

6 sn Mercy refers to God’s loyal love (steadfast love) by which he completes his promises. See Luke 1:50.

7 tn Or “our forefathers”; Grk “our fathers.” This begins with the promise to Abraham (vv. 55, 73), and thus refers to many generations of ancestors.

8 sn The promises of God can be summarized as being found in the one promise (the oath that he swore) to Abraham (Gen 12:1-3).
