“Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people,”
King James Version (KJV)
1:66 The hand of the Lord - The peculiar power and blessing of God.
1:67 And Zacharias prophesied - Of things immediately to follow. But it is observable, he speaks of Christ chiefly; of John only, as it were, incidentally.
1:69 A horn - Signifies honour, plenty, and strength. A horn of salvation - That is, a glorious and mighty Saviour.
1:70 His prophets, who have been since the world began - For there were prophets from the very beginning.
