And fear came on all who lived around them, and all these things were talked about throughout all the hill country of Judea. Bible other translations

“And fear came on all who lived around them.” In this context, the “fear” was more awe than actual fear. However, some people who had been living disobedient lifestyles may have gotten a jolt of godly fear of God’s judgment when they saw the power of God in action in the life of Zechariah.

“throughout all the hill country of Judea.” This is quite a bit of territory, and shows that when God moves in power it can affect people far away.


Commentary for: Luke 1:65
