Luke 1:39–56

Mary Visits Elizabeth

39 Now Mary arose in those days and went into the hill country with haste, pto a city of Judah, 40 and entered the house of Zacharias and greeted Elizabeth. 41 And it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, that the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was qfilled with the Holy Spirit. 42 Then she spoke out with a loud voice and said, r“Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! 43 But why is this granted to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 For indeed, as soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. 45 sBlessed is she who 8believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord.”

46 And Mary said:

t“My soul 9magnifies the Lord,

47 And my spirit has urejoiced in vGod my Savior.

48 For wHe has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant;

For behold, henceforth xall generations will call me blessed.

49 For He who is mighty yhas done great things for me,

And zholy is His name.

50 And aHis mercy is on those who fear Him

From generation to generation.

51 bHe has shown strength with His arm;

cHe has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.

52 dHe has put down the mighty from their thrones,

And exalted the lowly.

53 He has efilled the hungry with good things,

And the rich He has sent away empty.

54 He has helped His fservant Israel,

gIn remembrance of His mercy,

55 hAs He spoke to our ifathers,

To Abraham and to his jseed forever.”

56 And Mary remained with her about three months, and returned to her house.
