2

47. und mein Geist freuet sich GOttes, meines Heilandes.

[47] And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

3

48. Denn er hat die Niedrigkeit seiner Magd angesehen. Siehe, von nun an werden mich selig preisen alle Kindeskinder.

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

4

49. Denn er hat große Dinge an mir getan, der da mächtig ist, und des Name heilig ist.

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

[50] And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.

6

51. Er übet Gewalt mit seinem Arm und zerstreuet, die hoffärtig sind in ihres Herzens Sinn.

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

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

8

53. Die Hungrigen füllet er mit Gütern und läßt die Reichen leer.

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

54. Er denket der Barmherzigkeit und hilft seinem Diener Israel auf,

[54] He hath holpen his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy;

10

55. wie er geredet hat unsern Vätern, Abraham und seinem Samen ewiglich.

[55] As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever.
