39 Now aat this time Mary arose and went in a hurry to 1the hill country, to a city of Judah,
40 and entered the house of Zacharias and greeted Elizabeth.
42 And she cried out with a loud voice and said, "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb!
43 "And bhow has it happened to me, that the mother of 3my Lord would come to me?
44 "For behold, when the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby leaped in my womb for joy.
45 "And 4blessed is she who cbelieved that there would be a fulfillment of what had been spoken to her dby the Lord."

The Magnificat

46 And Mary said: "5My soul e6exalts the Lord,
47 And 7my spirit has rejoiced in 8God my Savior.
48 "For 9He has had regard for the humble state of His fbondslave; For behold, from this time on all generations will count me 10blessed.
49 "For the Mighty One has done great things for me; And holy is His name.
51 "12He has done hmighty deeds with His arm; He has scattered those who were proud in the ithoughts of their heart.
52 "He has brought down rulers from their thrones, And has 13exalted those who were humble.
53 "14HE HAS FILLED THE HUNGRY WITH GOOD THINGS; And sent away the rich empty-handed.
54 "He has given help to Israel His servant, jIn remembrance of His mercy,
55 15As He spoke to our fathers, 16To Abraham and his kdescendants forever."
56 And Mary stayed with her about three months, and then returned to her home.
