Hope everyone here has a deep and good and blessed Christmas. Figured this would be a good Christmas passage to translate this season....

Luke 1:46-55 reads in the OEB:

46 And Mary said:

   “My soul lifts up the Lord,
     47 and my spirit celebrates in God my Savior,
   48 for he has looked with favor on his humble servant girl.
     From now on all generations will call me blessed!

   49 For the Almighty has done great things for me,
     and holy is his name.
   50 He has mercy on those who revere him
     in every generation.

   51 Mighty are the deeds of his arm;
     he has scattered the self-satisfied proud,
   52 he has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
     and he uplifts the humble,
   53 he has filled the hungry with good things,
     and the rich he has sent away empty.

   54 He has stretched out his hand to his servant Israel,
     ever mindful of his mercy,
   55 as he promised to our ancestors
     for Abraham and his descendents for ever.”


Consider changing to:

46 And Mary said:

   “My soul exalts the Lord,
     47 and my spirit rejoices in God, my Savior,
   48 for he has looked with favor on the humble state of His servant.
     From now on all generations will call me blessed!

   49 For the Almighty has done great things for me,
     and holy is his name.
   50 He has mercy on those who revere him
     from generation to generation.

   51 He has shown might with His arm,
     He has scattered the proud, because of the thoughts in their hearts,
   52 He has brought down the mighty from their thrones,
     and exalted the humble.
   53 He has filled the hungry with good things,
     but the rich He has sent away empty.

   54 He has helped his servant Israel,
     remembering His mercy,
   55 as He promised to our ancestors
     for Abraham and his descendants for ever.”
