The Gospel of Luke

King James Version

Chapter 1, Verses 46-55

The Magnificat of Mary

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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