Luke 1:13

Context
1:13 But the angel said to him, “Do not be afraid, Zechariah, for your prayer has been heard, 1  and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son; you 2  will name him John. 3 

Luke 1:57

Context
The Birth of John

1:57 Now the time came 4  for Elizabeth to have her baby, 5  and she gave birth to a son.

1 tn The passive means that the prayer was heard by God.

sn Your prayer has been heard. Zechariah’s prayer while offering the sacrifice would have been for the nation, but the answer to the prayer also gave them a long hoped-for child, a hope they had abandoned because of their old age.

2 tn Grk “a son, and you”; καί (kai) has not been translated. Instead a semicolon is used in the translation for stylistic reasons.

3 tn Grk “you will call his name John.” The future tense here functions like a command (see ExSyn 569-70). This same construction occurs in v. 31.

snDo not be afraid…you must call his name John.” This is a standard birth announcement (see Gen 16:11; Isa 7:14; Matt 1:21; Luke 1:31).

4 tn Grk “the time was fulfilled.”

5 tn The words “her baby” are not in the Greek text, but have been supplied for clarity.
