Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Luke 1:68-79.

Luke 1:74-75

_ _ That he would grant us, etc. — How comprehensive is the view here given!

(1)_ _ The purpose of all redemption — “that we should serve Him” — that is, “the Lord God of Israel” (Luke 1:68). The word signifies religious service distinctively — “the priesthood of the New Testament” [Bengel].
(2)_ _ The nature of this service — “in holiness and righteousness before Him” (Luke 1:75) — or, as in His presence (compare Psalms 56:13).
(3)_ _ Its freedom — “being delivered out of the hand of our enemies.”
(4)_ _ Its fearlessness — “might serve Him without fear.”
(5)_ _ Its duration — “all the days of our life.”
Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 1:67-80.
