52  He hath put down princes from their thrones, And hath exalted them of low degree.

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.
