    Clarke's Commentary on Luke 1:67

    Zacharias - prophesied - The word prophesy is to be taken here in its proper acceptation, for the predicting or foretelling future events.

    Zacharias speaks, not only of what God had already done, but also of what he was about to do, in order to save a lost world.

    Barnes' Notes on Luke 1:67

    Filled with the Holy Ghost - See Luke 1:15.

    And prophesied - The word "prophesy" means:

    1. To foretell future events.

    2. To celebrate the praises of God (see 1 Samuel 10:5-6; 1 Kings 18:29); then to,

    3. Teach or preach the gospel, etc. See the notes at Romans 12:6.

    This song of Zechariah partakes of all. It is principally employed in the praises of God, but it also predicts the future character and preaching of John.

    Wesley's Notes on Luke 1:67

    1:67 And Zacharias prophesied - Of things immediately to follow. But it is observable, he speaks of Christ chiefly; of John only, as it were, incidentally.
