THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Luke (Author Luke)

1:39And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda;

1:40And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.

1:41And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:

1:42And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.

1:43And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?

1:44For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.

1:45And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.

1:46And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,

1:47And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

1:48For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.

1:49For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name.

1:50And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.

1:51He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.

1:52He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree.

1:53He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.

1:54He hath holpen his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy;

1:55As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever.

1:56And Mary abode with her about three months, and returned to her own house.
