<076> AV Translation: 52  He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree. 53  He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away. 1901 ASV Translation: 52  He hath put down princes from their thrones, And hath exalted them of low degree. 53  The hungry he hath filled with good things; And the rich he hath sent empty away. Textual Issues: There are no textual variants between the Textus Receptus and the Nestle/Aland 26.  Luke's Record: Mary's focus upon God's activities is upon the contrast between God's dealings with her as a representative of those who "fear" Him (characterized predominately as 'the humble') and God's dealings with an unnamed 'other' who is a representative of those who are "proud".  She exults in His mighty actions, which consist almost entirely of soul/spirit issues for the believers in His promises. Notes:
