Luke 1:64 Parallel
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

His mouth was opened ... - That is, he was enabled to speak. For nine months he had been mute, and it is probable that they supposed that he had been afflicted with a paralytic affection, and that he would not recover. Hence, their amazement when he spoke.

With true gratitude he offered praise to God for the birth of a son, and for his restoration to the blessings of speech.

I might ask the question concerning this innumerable host, "Who slew all these?" The answer would be, "Unbelief." And when unbelief comes into the Christian's heart, as it does at times--for the truest believer has his times of
