36)Now there was one, Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was of a great age, and had lived with a husband seven years from her virginity;
37,and this woman was a widow about eighty-four years old who did not depart from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.
38)And coming in that instant she gave thanks to the Lord, and spoke of Him to all those who looked for redemption in Jerusalem.
39)So when they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned to Galilee, to their own city, Nazareth.
40)And the Child grew and became strong in spirit, filled with wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him.
