anyone want to chat over this?

Luke 1:46-55 (ESV)
    And Mary said,

    “My soul magnifies the Lord,
        [47] and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
    [48] for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant.
        For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed;
    [49] for he who is mighty has done great things for me,
        and holy is his name.
    [50] And his mercy is for those who fear him
        from generation to generation.
    [51] He has shown strength with his arm;
        he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts;
    [52] he has brought down the mighty from their thrones
        and exalted those of humble estate;
    [53] he has filled the hungry with good things,
        and the rich he has sent empty away.
    [54] He has helped his servant Israel,
        in remembrance of his mercy,
    [55] as he spoke to our fathers,
        to Abraham and to his offspring forever.”

    “humble estate” v. 48, 52
    “servant” v. 48, 54
    “Mercy: v. 50, 54
    endurance: “generation to generation” v. 50 and “offsrping forever” v. 55
