my soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit rejoiceth in God my saviour. For he hath reguarded the low estate of his handmaiden; for behold, from henceforth all nations <​generations​> shall call me blessed. For he who is mighty hath done to me great things; and I will magnify his holy name, for his mercy on those who fear him from generation to generation. He hath shewed strenght with his arm; he hath sattered the proud in the imagenation of their hearts. He hath put down the mighty from their high seats and exalted them of low degree. He hath filled the hungery with goods <​things;​> but the rich he hath sent empty away. He hath helped <​his​> servent Israel in rememberence of mercy, as he spake to our fathers <​13/​> to Abraham, and, <​to​> his seed forever. <​13/​> and Mary abode with Elizebeth about three months, and returned to her own house. And now Elizebeth’s full time came that she should be delivered; and she brought forth a son. and her neghbours, and her Couzens heard how the Lord <​14/​> had shewed great mercy upon <​unto​> her, and they rejoiced with her. <​14/​> And it came to pass, <​that​> on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child; and they called him Zackarias, after the name of his father. And his mother answered and said; not so, but he shall be called John. And they said unto her, there is none of thy k[i]ndred that is called by this name. and they made signs to his father, and asked him how he would have him called. and he asked for a writing table, and wrote, saying, his name is John. And they all marveled. and his mo[u]th was opened immediately, and he spake with his toungue and praised God <​15/​> and fear came on all who dwelt <​round​> about them. And all these sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill country of Judeah. And all they that heard them, laid them up in their hearts, saying, what manner of child shall this be? and the hand of the Lord was with it and its father, Zackarias, was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophecied saying, Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people, and hath raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of his servent David, as he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets ever since the world began, that we should be saved from our enemies and from the hand of <​all​> those who hate us; to perform the mercy <​promised​> to our fathers and to remember his holy covenent; the oath which he sware to our father Abraham, that he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear [p. 48 (second numbering)]
