Luke 1:52-53

Context

1:52 He has brought down the mighty 1  from their thrones, and has lifted up those of lowly position; 2 

1:53 he has filled the hungry with good things, 3  and has sent the rich away empty. 4 

1 tn Or “rulers.”

2 tn Or “those of humble position”

sn The contrast between the mighty and those of lowly position is fundamental for Luke. God cares for those that the powerful ignore (Luke 4:18-19).

3 sn Good things refers not merely to material blessings, but blessings that come from knowing God.

4 sn Another fundamental contrast of Luke’s is between the hungry and the rich (Luke 6:20-26).
