Bible: Luke 2:36-38

The Testimony of Anna

2:36 There was also a prophetess, Anna the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was very old, 1  having been married to her husband for seven years until his death. 2:37 She had lived as a widow since then for eighty-four years. 2  She never left the temple, worshiping with fasting and prayer night and day. 3  2:38 At that moment, 4  she came up to them 5  and began to give thanks to God and to speak 6  about the child 7  to all who were waiting for the redemption of Jerusalem. 8
