"Elizabeth, your relative, is six months pregnant with a son in her old age. People said she couldn't have a child.
But nothing is impossible for God."
Mary answered, "I am the Lord's servant. Let everything you've said happen to me." Then the angel left her.
Soon afterward, Mary hurried to a city in the mountain region of Judah.
She entered Zechariah's home and greeted Elizabeth.
When Elizabeth heard the greeting, she felt the baby kick. Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
She said in a loud voice, "You are the most blessed of all women, and blessed is the child that you will have.
I feel blessed that the mother of my Lord is visiting me.
As soon as I heard your greeting, I felt the baby jump for joy.
You are blessed for believing that the Lord would keep his promise to you."
Mary said, "My soul praises the Lord's greatness!
