Mary Visits Elizabeth

James Grayston

In those days, Mary arose (and) went with haste into the hills into a town in Judea, and she entered into the house of Zechariah and embraced Elizabeth. And it happened, just as Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the child in her womb leaped, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. And she exclaimed a loud cry and said, "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. And from where (is) this to me, that the mother of my Lord might come to me? For behold, just as the sound of your greeting happened in my ears, the child in my womb leaped in joy, and blessed is she who trusted that there will be completion of what was spoken to her by the Lord."

And Mary said, "My life magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my saviour, that he has looked upon the humiliation of his servant, for behold, from now on, all generations will bless me, for the Powerful One has done great for me and holy his name, and his mercy (is) into generations and generations, to the ones fearing him. He has done power in his arm. He has scattered the proud ones to the thinking of their hearts. He has destroyed (the) powerful from thrones, and exalted the lowly. He has filled the hungry ones with good, and the rich ones he has sent away empty. He has laid hold of Israel his child, to be remembered with mercy, just as he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and his seed into the eternal." And Mary remained with her about three months and she returned into her house.
