Mary visits Elizabeth
39 After that, Mary prepared herself to travel. She hurried to a town in the hills of Judea.
40 When she arrived at the home of Zechariah, she said, ‘Hello’ to Elizabeth.
41 When Elizabeth heard Mary speak, she felt her baby move quickly inside her. The Holy Spirit filled her.
42 She spoke to Mary in a loud voice, ‘God has made you very happy. He has been good and kind to you more than to other women. He has also been good and kind to your baby.
43 You are the mother of my Lord and I am not an important person. So it is very good that you have visited me.
44 Listen! When I heard you say, “Hello” to me, my baby moved quickly inside me. He was very happy.
45 The Lord has told you what will happen. And you believed what he told you. Because of that, God has made you a happy person.’
