Lk. 2:25 And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon, and this man was just and devout, waiting for the Consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him.
Lk. 2:26 And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Messiah.
Lk. 2:27 So he came by the Spirit into the Temple. And when the parents brought in the Child Yeshua, to do for Him according to the custom of the Law,
Lk. 2:28 He took Him up in his arms and blessed God and said,
Lk. 2:29 “Lord, now You are letting Your servant depart in peace, according to Your word;”
Lk. 2:30 “For my eyes have seen your salvation..”

Lk. 2:34 Then Simeon blessed them, and said to Miriam His mother, “Behold, this Child is destined for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign which will be spoken against.”
Lk. 2:35 “(Yes, a sword will pierce through your own soul also), that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed.”

Lk. 2:37 And this woman was a widow of about eighty-four years, who did not depart from the Temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.
Lk. 2:38 And coming in that instant, she gave thanks to the Lord, and spoke of Him to all those who looked for the redemption of Israel.
