Simeon had the promise that he should not die till he had seen the Messiah. As soon as Simeon saw Jesus in the temple, he knew Him to be the Anointed of the Lord. Taking the child in his arms, he blessed God, and said—

“Lord, now let they servant depart in peace, according to Thy word; for mine eyes have seen Thy salvation, which Thou hast prepared before the face of all people—a light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of Thy people Israel.” Luke 2:29-32.

Anna, the prophetess, was a woman of great age. She “served God with fastings and prayers night and day.” Luke 2:37.

“And she, coming in that instant, gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of Him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem.” Luke 2:38.

“He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree. He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich He hath sent empty away.” Luke 1:46, 49, 52, 53.
