“To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant;”
King James Version (KJV)
1:70 His prophets, who have been since the world began - For there were prophets from the very beginning.
1:74 To serve him without fear - Without any slavish fear. Here is the substance of the great promise. That we shall be always holy, always happy: that being delivered from Satan and sin, from every uneasy and unholy temper, we shall joyfully love and serve God, in every thought, word, and work.
