Luke 2:27

Context
2:27 So 1  Simeon, 2  directed by the Spirit, 3  came into the temple courts, 4  and when the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what was customary according to the law, 5 

Luke 2:36

Context
The Testimony of Anna

2:36 There was also a prophetess, Anna the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was very old, 6  having been married to her husband for seven years until his death.

1 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “so” to indicate the consequential nature of the action.

2 tn Grk “he”; the referent (Simeon) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

3 tn Grk “So in the Spirit” or “So by the Spirit,” but since it refers to the Spirit’s direction the expanded translation “directed by the Spirit” is used here.

4 tn Grk “the temple.”

sn The temple courts is a reference to the larger temple area, not the holy place. Simeon was either in the court of the Gentiles or the court of women, since Mary was present.

5 tn Grk “to do for him according to the custom of the law.” See Luke 2:22-24.

6 tn Her age is emphasized by the Greek phrase here, “she was very old in her many days.”
