Luke 1:46-58 NRSVue

46And Mary said,

“My soul magnifies the Lord,

47and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, 48for he has looked with favor on the lowly state of his servant. Surely from now on all generations will call me blessed, 49for the Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name; 50indeed, his mercy is for those who fear him from generation to generation. 51He has shown strength with his arm; he has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. 52He has brought down the powerful from their thrones and lifted up the lowly; 53he has filled the hungry with good things and sent the rich away empty. 54He has come to the aid of his child Israel, in remembrance of his mercy, 55according to the promise he made to our ancestors, to Abraham and to his descendants forever.”

56And Mary remained with her about three months and then returned to her home.

57Now the time came for Elizabeth to give birth, and she bore a son. 58Her neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord had shown his great mercy to her, and they rejoiced with her.
