Neighbors are happy (Lk 1:58-1:58)

“Her neighbors

And relatives


That the Lord

Had extolled Elizabeth.

He had shown

His great mercy

To her.

They rejoiced

With her.”


καὶ ἤκουσαν οἱ περίοικοι καὶ οἱ συγγενεῖς αὐτῆς ὅτι ἐμεγάλυνεν Κύριος τὸ ἔλεος αὐτοῦ μετ’ αὐτῆς, καὶ συνέχαιρον αὐτῇ.


Luke once again emphasized the normality of this birth.  Everyone was happy about the new baby boy.  Luke said that Elizabeth’s neighbors (οἱ περίοικοι) and relatives (καὶ οἱ συγγενεῖς) had heard (καὶ ἤκουσαν) that the Lord had extolled her (ὅτι ἐμεγάλυνεν Κύριος).  He had shown her great mercy (τὸ ἔλεος αὐτοῦ μετ’ αὐτῆς,) with this childbirth.  Thus, they all rejoiced with her (καὶ συνέχαιρον αὐτῇ).  It was and is quite common to think of childbirth as a gift from God.
