Luke 1:74-75

Context

1:74 that we, being rescued from the hand of our 1  enemies,

may serve him without fear, 2 

1:75 in holiness and righteousness 3  before him for as long as we live. 4 

1 tc Many important early mss (א B L W [0130] Ë1,13 565 892 pc) lack “our,” while most (A C D [K] Θ Ψ 0177 33 Ï pc) supply it. Although the addition is most likely not authentic, “our” has been included in the translation due to English stylistic requirements.

2 tn This phrase in Greek is actually thrown forward to the front of the verse to give it emphasis.

3 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.

4 tn Grk “all our days.”
