Immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue set free, and he began to speak, praising God.
King James Bible

Darby Bible Translation
And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue, and he spake, blessing God.
World English Bible
His mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue freed, and he spoke, blessing God.
Young's Literal Translation
and his mouth was opened presently, and his tongue, and he was speaking, praising God.
Luke 1:64 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The latter clause of the preceding verse should be joined with the beginning of this, as follows: And they marveled all, for his mouth was opened, etc. Every person must see the propriety of putting this clause, And they marveled all, to the beginning of the 64th verse, instead of leaving it at the end of the 63rd, as in the common version. The people did not wonder because Zacharias said, He shall be called John; but because he himself was that instant restored to the use of his speech.
And he spake, and praised God - In his nine months' silence, he had learned the proper use of his tongue; and God, whose power was discredited by it, is now magnified. Happy they who, in religious matters, only break silence in order to speak of the loving-kindness of the Lord!

The Key-Note of a Choice Sonnet
The LORD said to him, "Who gave human beings their mouths? Who makes them deaf or mute? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Is it not I, the LORD?
Now the evening before the man arrived, the hand of the LORD was on me, and he opened my mouth before the man came to me in the morning. So my mouth was opened and I was no longer silent.
And now you will be silent and not able to speak until the day this happens, because you did not believe my words, which will come true at their appointed time."
