Chapter # 1  Paragraph # 4  Study # 10
Lincolnton, NC

(074)

AV Translation:

51  He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.

1901 ASV Translation:

51  He hath showed strength with his arm; He hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their heart.

Textual Issues:

There are no textual variants between the Textus Receptus and the Nestle/Aland 26.  The difference in the translations of "hearts/heart" is a matter of translation choice since the form can either be genitive singular or accusative plural.

Luke's Record:

Luke is recording Mary's comments about how God "typically" acts.  She says He has "scattered" the "proud" in respect to the imagination of their hearts.
