Luke    1: 39-45

1:39 And in those days, Mary, rising up, traveled quickly into the hill country, to a city of Judah.

1:40 And she entered into the house of Zechariah, and she greeted Elizabeth.

1:41 And it happened that, as Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the infant leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.

1:42 And she cried out with a loud voice and said: “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb.

1:43 And how does this concern me, so that the mother of my Lord would come to me?

1:44 For behold, as the voice of your greeting came to my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy.

1:45 And blessed are you who believed, for the things that were spoken to you by the Lord shall be accomplished.”
