Treasury of Scripture

He has filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he has sent empty away.

filled.

Luke 6:21

Luke 6:24

Luke 12:16-21

Luke 16:19-25
There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: …









(53) He hath filled the hungry.--It is interesting to note the manner in which the song of the Virgin anticipates the beatitudes of the Sermon on the Plain as reported by St. Luke (Luke 6:21). The words, like those of the beatitudes, have both their literal and their spiritual fulfilments. Both those who trusted in their earthly riches, and those who gloried in their fancied spiritual wealth, were sent empty away, while the "hungry," those who craved for a higher blessedness, were filled with the peace and righteousness which they sought.
