What does Luke 1:42 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Luke 1:42

And she spake out with a loud voice
So as that all in the house might hear; she spake with great vehemency of soul, and strength of affection, being under a very powerful impression of the Spirit of God: and said,

blessed art thou among women;
the same words that the angel had said to her before, ( Luke 1:28 )

and blessed is the fruit of thy womb:
this is a reason why she is called blessed, because her child was blessed; being in union with a divine person, who is God over all, blessed for ever; and who has all spiritual blessings in him, and is that seed, in which all nations of the earth were to be blessed; and so is both blessed in himself, and the source of all blessedness to others. The Jews say F8, that the six measures of barley, Boaz gave to Ruth, ( Ruth 3:15 ) signified, that six righteous men should spring from her, and among, them the Messiah; who should be blessed with six blessings, and they are these; the spirit of wisdom and understanding, of counsel and of might, the spirit of knowledge, and of the fear of the Lord; see ( Isaiah 11:2 ) .
