Luke 1:68

Context

1:68 “Blessed 1  be the Lord God of Israel,

because he has come to help 2  and has redeemed 3  his people.

1 sn The traditional name of this psalm, the “Benedictus,” comes from the Latin wording of the start of the hymn (“Blessed be…”).

2 sn The verb come to help can refer to a visit, but can also connote concern or assistance (L&N 85.11).

3 tn Or “has delivered”; Grk “has accomplished redemption.”

sn Has redeemed is a reference to redemption, but it anticipates the total release into salvation that the full work of Messiah will bring for Israel. This involves both spiritual and material benefits eventually.
