Contextual Overview

39In those days, Mary rose up, and went hurriedly to a mountain, to a city of Judaea. 40And she entered the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elizabeth. 41And when Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. 42And she cried in a loud voice, and said to Mary, Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. 43How does this happen to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44For behold, when the voice of your salutation fell on my ears, the babe in my womb leaped with great joy. 45And blessed is she who believed; for there will be a fulfillment of the things which were spoken to her from the Lord. 46And Mary said, My soul magnifies the Lord, 47And my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour. 48For he has regarded the meekness of his handmaid; for behold, from henceforth, all generations shall envy me.

Gill's Notes on the Bible

For he that is mighty hath done to me great things,.... With respect to the incarnation of Christ, a new, a great, and unheard of thing; in causing her, though a virgin, to conceive; and also to bear such a Son, who should be called Jesus, a Saviour, Immanuel, God with us; and who was no other than the mighty God, the everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace: wherefore she describes God the author of it, by a proper periphrasis of him, "he that is mighty"; since this was a work of almighty power, and very justly adds,

and holy is his name: seeing this was brought about without any impurity, through the overshadowing influence of the Holy Ghost; whereby the human nature was preserved from the infection of sin, was sanctified, and fit to be united to the Son of God, and to be a sacrifice for the sins of his people. This may also have regard to the great things God had done for her in a spiritual sense; in the choice of her to eternal life, in the redemption of her by the Messiah, and in her regeneration and sanctification; wherein God had displayed his sovereign grace and goodness, and his almighty power, in a way consistent with his justice and holiness.

Barnes' Notes on the Bible

He that is mighty - God.

Hath done to me great things - Hath conferred on me great favors and distinguished mercies.

And holy is his name - This is an expression of Mary‘s feelings, desiring to bestow on God all honor and praise. As the highest honor, she declared that his “name” was “holy” - that is, that God was free from sin, injustice, and impurity. The “name” of God is often put for God Himself. The proper name of God is יהוה Yahweha word expressive of His “essential being,” derived from the word “to be,” Exodus 3:14; Exodus 6:3; Psalm 83:18. That name is holy; is to be regarded as holy; and to make a common or profane use of it is solemnly forbidden, Exodus 20:7.

Clarke's Notes on the Bible

He that is mighty hath done to me great things - Or, miracles, μεγαλεια . As God fills her with his goodness, she empties herself to him in praises; and, sinking into her own nothingness, she ever confesses that God alone is all in all.

Holy is his name - Probably the word which Mary used was חסד chesed, which though we sometimes translate holy, see Psalm 86:2; Psalm 145:17, yet the proper meaning is abundant goodness, exuberant kindness; and this well agrees with the following clause.
