14 Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat and upbraided them with their unbelief, and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.

5 THERE was, in the days of Herod the king of Judea, a certain priest named Zacharias, ||
6 And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.
7 And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren and they both were now well stricken in years.

13 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.

23 And it came to pass, that as soon as the days of his ministration were accomplished, he departed to his own house.

17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.
18 And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years.
