Magnificat [NAVE]

MAGNIFICAT, of Mary, Luke 1:46-55.

MAGNIFICAT [ISBE]

MAGNIFICAT - mag-nif'-i-kat: The name given to the hymn of Mary in Lk 1:46-55, commencing "My soul doth magnify the Lord." Three old Latin manuscripts substitute the name "Elisabeth" for "Mary" in 1:46, but against this is the authority of all Greek manuscripts and other Latin versions. The hymn, modeled in part on that of Hannah in 1 Sam 2:1 ff, is peculiarly suitable to the circumstances of Mary, and plainly could not have been composed after the actual appearance and resurrection of Christ. Its early date is thus manifest.
