41 When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting,
the baby leaped in her womb,
and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
42 In a loud voice, she exclaimed: “Blessed are you
among women, and blessed is the child you will bear!
43 But why am I so favored, that the
mother of my Lord should come to me?
44 As soon as the sound of your greeting
reached my ears, the baby in my
womb leaped for joy.
