Luke 1:6

Context
1:6 They 1  were both righteous in the sight of God, following 2  all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blamelessly. 3 

Luke 1:75

Context

1:75 in holiness and righteousness 4  before him for as long as we live. 5 

1 tn Grk “And they.” Because of the difference between Greek style, which often begins sentences or clauses with “and,” and English style, which generally does not, καί (kai) has not been translated here.

2 tn Grk “walking in” (an idiom for one’s lifestyle).

sn The description of Zechariah and Elizabeth as following… blamelessly was not to say that they were sinless, but that they were faithful and pious. Thus a practical righteousness is meant here (Gen 6:8; Deut 28:9).

3 tn The predicate adjective has the effect of an adverb here (BDF §243).

4 sn The phrases that we…might serve him…in holiness and righteousness from Luke 1:74-75 well summarize a basic goal for a believer in the eyes of Luke. Salvation frees us up to serve God without fear through a life full of ethical integrity.

5 tn Grk “all our days.”
