THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO LUKE - Chapter 1 - Verse 38

Verse 38. And Mary said, Behold the handmaid {m}, &c. This was an expression of resignation to the will of God, and of faith in the promise. To be the hand-maid of the Lord is to be submissive and obedient, and is the same as saying, "I fully credit all that is said, and am perfectly ready to obey all the commands of the Lord."

{m} Ps 116:16 {n} "according to thy word" Ps 119:38
