Luke 2:37 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Of about fourscore and four years (ὡς ἐτῶν ὀγδοήκοντα τεσσάρων)

The A. V. might be supposed to be stating her age; but the best texts read ἕως, until, instead of ὡς about; and the statement refers to the time of her widowhood; a widow even for (or up to) fourscore and four years. So Rev.

Served (λατρεύουσα)

The present participle, serving. Rev., worshipping. See on Luke 1:74.
