Luke 1:39-56 New King James Version (NKJV)

Mary Visits Elizabeth

39 Now Mary arose in those days and went into the hill country with haste, to a city of Judah, 40 and entered the house of Zacharias and greeted Elizabeth. 41 And it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, that the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. 42 Then she spoke out with a loud voice and said, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! 43 But why is this granted to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 For indeed, as soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. 45 Blessed is she who [a]believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord.”

The Song of Mary

46 And Mary said:

“My soul [b]magnifies the Lord,
47 And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.
48 For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant;
For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed.
49 For He who is mighty has done great things for me,
And holy is His name.
50 And His mercy is on those who fear Him
From generation to generation.
51 He has shown strength with His arm;
He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
52 He has put down the mighty from their thrones,
And exalted the lowly.
53 He has filled the hungry with good things,
And the rich He has sent away empty.
54 He has helped His servant Israel,
In remembrance of His mercy,
55 As He spoke to our fathers,
To Abraham and to his seed forever.”

56 And Mary remained with her about three months, and returned to her house.

ΚΑΤΑ ΛΟΥΚΑΝ 1:39-56 1894 Scrivener New Testament (TR1894)

39 αναστασα δε μαριαμ εν ταις ημεραις ταυταις επορευθη εις την ορεινην μετα σπουδης εις πολιν ιουδα

40 και εισηλθεν εις τον οικον ζαχαριου και ησπασατο την ελισαβετ

41 και εγενετο ως ηκουσεν η ελισαβετ τον ασπασμον της μαριας εσκιρτησεν το βρεφος εν τη κοιλια αυτης και επλησθη πνευματος αγιου η ελισαβετ

42 και ανεφωνησεν φωνη μεγαλη και ειπεν ευλογημενη συ εν γυναιξιν και ευλογημενος ο καρπος της κοιλιας σου

43 και ποθεν μοι τουτο ινα ελθη η μητηρ του κυριου μου προς με

44 ιδου γαρ ως εγενετο η φωνη του ασπασμου σου εις τα ωτα μου εσκιρτησεν εν αγαλλιασει το βρεφος εν τη κοιλια μου

45 και μακαρια η πιστευσασα οτι εσται τελειωσις τοις λελαλημενοις αυτη παρα κυριου

46 και ειπεν μαριαμ μεγαλυνει η ψυχη μου τον κυριον

47 και ηγαλλιασεν το πνευμα μου επι τω θεω τω σωτηρι μου

48 οτι επεβλεψεν επι την ταπεινωσιν της δουλης αυτου ιδου γαρ απο του νυν μακαριουσιν με πασαι αι γενεαι

49 οτι εποιησεν μοι μεγαλεια ο δυνατος και αγιον το ονομα αυτου

50 και το ελεος αυτου εις γενεας γενεων τοις φοβουμενοις αυτον

51 εποιησεν κρατος εν βραχιονι αυτου διεσκορπισεν υπερηφανους διανοια καρδιας αυτων

52 καθειλεν δυναστας απο θρονων και υψωσεν ταπεινους

53 πεινωντας ενεπλησεν αγαθων και πλουτουντας εξαπεστειλεν κενους

54 αντελαβετο ισραηλ παιδος αυτου μνησθηναι ελεους

55 καθως ελαλησεν προς τους πατερας ημων τω αβρααμ και τω σπερματι αυτου εις τον αιωνα

56 εμεινεν δε μαριαμ συν αυτη ωσει μηνας τρεις και υπεστρεψεν εις τον οικον αυτης

Luke 1:39-56 Young's Literal Translation (YLT)

39 And Mary having arisen in those days, went to the hill-country, with haste, to a city of Judea,

40 and entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.

41 And it came to pass, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe did leap in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit,

42 and spake out with a loud voice, and said, `Blessed [art] thou among women, and blessed [is] the fruit of thy womb;

43 and whence [is] this to me, that the mother of my Lord might come unto me?

44 for, lo, when the voice of thy salutation came to my ears, leap in gladness did the babe in my womb;

45 and happy [is] she who did believe, for there shall be a completion to the things spoken to her from the Lord.'

46 And Mary said, `My soul doth magnify the Lord,

47 And my spirit was glad on God my Saviour,

48 Because He looked on the lowliness of His maid-servant, For, lo, henceforth call me happy shall all the generations,

49 For He who is mighty did to me great things, And holy [is] His name,

50 And His kindness [is] to generations of generations, To those fearing Him,

51 He did powerfully with His arm, He scattered abroad the proud in the thought of their heart,

52 He brought down the mighty from thrones, And He exalted the lowly,

53 The hungry He did fill with good, And the rich He sent away empty,

54 He received again Israel His servant, To remember kindness,

55 As He spake unto our fathers, To Abraham and to his seed -- to the age.'

56 And Mary remained with her about three months, and turned back to her house.

Luke 1:39-56 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Mary Visits Elizabeth

39 Now [a]at this time Mary arose and went in a hurry to the hill country, to a city of Judah, 40 and entered the house of Zacharias and greeted Elizabeth. 41 When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. 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 [b]how has it happened to me, that the mother of my 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 blessed is she who [c]believed that there would be a fulfillment of what had been spoken to her [d]by the Lord.”

The Magnificat

46 And Mary said:

My soul [e]exalts the Lord,
47 And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.
48 “For He has had regard for the humble state of His [f]bondslave;
For behold, from this time on all generations will count me blessed.
49 “For the Mighty One has done great things for me;
And holy is His name.
50 And His mercy is [g]upon generation after generation
Toward those who fear Him.
51 He has done [h]mighty deeds with His arm;
He has scattered those who were proud in the [i]thoughts of their heart.
52 “He has brought down rulers from their thrones,
And has exalted those who were humble.
53 He has filled the hungry with good things;
And sent away the rich empty-handed.
54 “He has given help to Israel His servant,
[j]In remembrance of His mercy,
55 As He spoke to our fathers,
To Abraham and his [k]descendants forever.”

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