51:5 Math 2:1; 1Maũ 24:10Na rĩrĩ, hĩndĩ ĩrĩa Herode aarĩ mũthamaki wa Judea, nĩ kwarĩ mũthĩnjĩri-Ngai wetagwo Zakaria, warĩ wa gĩkundi kĩa athĩnjĩri-Ngai kĩa Abija; mũtumia wake eetagwo Elizabethi na aarĩ wa rũciaro rwa Harũni. 61:6 Kĩam 6:9; Gũcook 5:33O eerĩ maarĩ arũngĩrĩru maitho-inĩ ma Ngai, na nĩmathĩkagĩra maathani ma Mwathani na mawatho mothe matarĩ na ũcuuke. 7Nao matiarĩ na twana tondũ Elizabethi aarĩ thaata; na eerĩ maarĩ akũrũ mũno.
