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.

Verse Review

Treasury of Scripure Knowledge

As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever.
Genesis 12:3; 17:19; 22:18; 26:4; 28:14; Psalms 105:6-10; 132:11-17; Romans 11:28,29; Galatians 3:16,17

Gill's Notes on the Bible

As he spake to our fathers,.... To David, of whose family Mary was; and to Jacob, or Israel, of whose stock she was; and to Isaac, in whom the seed was to be, called; and particularly,

to Abraham and to his seed for ever: not his natural, but his spiritual seed; both among Jews and Gentiles, to the end of the world; to these God promised this mercy of a Saviour and Redeemer, and to these he performs it, and will to all generations.

Barnes' Notes on the Bible

As he spake to our fathers … - That is, He has dealt mercifully with the children of Israel, according as He promised Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The promise particularly here referred to is that respecting the Messiah which was now about to be fulfilled; but there is no doubt that there was also included the promises respecting all the other mercies which had been conferred on the children of Israel. See Genesis 22:17-18.

Forever - These words are to be referred to the preceding verse - “in remembrance of His mercy” forever, “as he spake,” etc. They denote that the “mercy of God” manifested to His people should be had in everlasting remembrance.

There is a striking similarity between this song of praise by Mary and that spoken by “Hannah,” 1 Samuel 2:2-10. There are few pieces of “poetry” - for this is poetry, and almost the only poetry in the New Testament - more beautiful than this. It is the language of a humble, thankful, pious, female heart praising God:

1.For his mercy to her, Luke 1:46-49;

2.For his mercy to all people - his “general” goodness, Luke 1:50-53; and,

3.His special goodness to his people, Luke 1:54-55.
