Luke 1:46–55

The Magnificat

46 And Mary said:

aMy soul 1bexalts the Lord,

47 And amy spirit has rejoiced in bGod my Savior.

48 “For aHe has had regard for the humble state of His 1bondslave;

For behold, from this time on all generations will count me bblessed.

49 “For the Mighty One has done great things for me;

And holy is His name.

50 aAnd His mercy is 1upon generation after generation

Toward those who fear Him.

51 aHe has done 1mighty deeds with His arm;

He has scattered those who were proud in the 2thoughts of their heart.

52 “He has brought down rulers from their thrones,

And has aexalted those who were humble.

53 aHe has filled the hungry with good things;

And sent away the rich empty-handed.

54 “He has given help to Israel His servant,

1In remembrance of His mercy,

55 aAs He spoke to our fathers,

bTo Abraham and his 1descendants forever.”
