39 In those days Mary arose and went with haste into the hill country, to a city of Judah, 40 and she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. 41 And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit 42 and she exclaimed with a loud cry, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! 43 And why is this granted me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 For behold, when the voice of your greeting came to my ears, the babe in my womb leaped for joy. 45 And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfilment of what was spoken to her from the Lord.”
“My soul magnifies the Lord,
For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed;
and holy is his name.
from generation to generation.
he has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts,
and exalted those of low degree;
and the rich he has sent empty away.
in remembrance of his mercy,
to Abraham and to his posterity for ever.”
