There was an old man called Simeon who was righteous and devout.


There was an old man called Simeon who was righteous and devout. He was looking for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him, and it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he should not die before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. Moved by the Holy Spirit, he came into the temple courts. When the parents brought into the Child Jesus for to do the custom of the Law required, Simeon took Him in his arms, and praised the Lord God. (Luke 2:22-38).
