(每日读经5/31) 路加福音 - Luke 1.39-56
And Mary rose up in those days and went to the hill country with haste, to a city of Judah,
And entered into the house of Zachariah and greeted Elizabeth.
And when Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
And she lifted up her voice with a loud cry and said, Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb!
And how has this happened to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
For behold, when the sound of your greeting came to my ears, the baby leaped with exultation in my womb.
And blessed is she who has believed, because there will be a completion of the things spoken to her from the Lord.
And Mary said, My soul magnifies the Lord,
And my spirit has exulted in God my Savior;
Because He has looked upon the low estate of His slave. For behold, from now on all generations will count me blessed,
Because the Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is His name.
And His mercy is unto generations and generations, unto those who fear Him.
He has exercised might with His arm; He has scattered those who are proud in the understanding of their heart.
He has brought down potentates from thrones and has exalted the humble;
The hungry He has filled with good things, and the rich He has sent away empty.
He has upheld Israel His servant to remember mercy,
Even as He spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his seed forever.
And Mary remained with her about three months, and returned to her home.
