Bible Quote 1:39 At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea,
1:40 where she entered Zechariah's home and greeted Elizabeth.

1:41 When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
1:42 In a loud voice she exclaimed: "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear!
1:43 But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
1:44 As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy.
1:45 Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!"

1:46 And Mary said: "My soul glorifies the Lord
1:47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
1:48 for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant. From now on all generations will call me blessed,
1:49 for the Mighty One has done great things for me-- holy is his name.
1:50 His mercy extends to those who fear him, from generation to generation.

1:51 He has performed mighty deeds with his arm; he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
1:52 He has brought down rulers from their thrones but has lifted up the humble.
1:53 He has filled the hungry with good things but has sent the rich away empty.
1:54 He has helped his servant Israel, remembering to be merciful
1:55 to Abraham and his descendants forever, even as he said to our fathers."

1:56 Mary stayed with Elizabeth for about three months and then returned home.
