13 Now when Paul and his company cast loose from Paphos, they came to Perga in Pamphylia; and John, departing from them, returned to Jerusalem. 14 But when they departed from Perga, they came to Antioch in Pisidia, and went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day and sat down. 15 And after the reading from the Law and the Prophets, the rulers of the synagogue sent unto them, saying, "Ye men and brethren, if ye have any word of exhortation for the people, say on."
16 Then Paul stood up, and beckoning with his hand said: "Men of Israel and ye that fear God, give audience! 17 The God of this people of Israel chose our fathers, and exalted the people when they dwelt as strangers in the land of Egypt, and with uplifted arm He brought them out of it. 18 And for about forty years, He suffered their ways in the wilderness. 19 And when He had destroyed seven nations in the land of Canaan, He divided their land among them by lot. 20 And after that, He gave unto them judges for about the space of four hundred and fifty years, until Samuel the prophet. 21 And afterward they desired a king, and God gave unto them Saul the son of Kish, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, for the space of forty years. 22 And when He had removed him, He raised up unto them David to be their king, to whom also He gave testimony and said, `I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after Mine own heart, who shall fulfill all My will.' 23 Of this man's seed hath God, according to His promise, raised unto Israel a Savior, Jesus. 24 John had first preached, before His coming, the baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel. 25 And as John was fulfilling his course, he said, `Whom think ye that I am? I am not He. But behold, there cometh One after me, the shoes of whose feet I am not worthy to loose.'
26 "Men and brethren, children of the stock of Abraham, and whosoever among you feareth God, to you is the word of this salvation sent.

57 Now Elizabeth's full time came that she should be delivered, and she brought forth a son. 58 And her neighbors and her kindred heard how the Lord had shown great mercy upon her, and they rejoiced with her. 59 And it came to pass that on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child, and they called him Zacharias, after the name of his father. 60 But his mother answered and said, "Not so, but he shall be called John." 61 And they said unto her, "There is none of thy kindred that is called by this name." 62 And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called. 63 And he asked for a writing tablet and wrote, saying, "His name is John." And they marveled all. 64 And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spoke and praised God. 65 And fear came on all who dwelt round about them; and all these sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill country of Judea. 66 And all those who heard them laid them up in their hearts, saying, "What manner of child shall this be?" And the hand of the Lord was with him.
80 And the child grew and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts until the day of his appearing unto Israel.
