Shim'On's Prayer


"There was a man in Yerushalayim who’s was Shim’on.  

He was a righteous and devout man, waiting for the consolation 

of Yisra’el, and the Holy Spirit was upon him.  To him it had been

revealed by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death until he 

saw the Mashiach of HaShem. He came by the spirit to the temple, 

and when his parents brought the boy Yeshua to do to him what 

the statute of the Torah says, he took him up in his arms and blessed God. 

He said,


'Now you may let your servant pass away according to your

word, My Master, in peace.  For my eyes have seen your

salvation that you have prepared before all the peoples:

light to illuminate the eyes of the nations and the majesty

of your people Yisra’el.’”
