27b  Extollens vocem quaedam mulier de turba, dixit:
'Beatus venter qui te portavit, et ubera quae suxisti.'

27b  A certain woman from the crowd, lifting up her voice, said to him:
Blessed is the womb that bore thee and the breasts that gave thee suck.
28  But Jesus said to her: Yea rather, blessed are they who hear the word of God and keep it.
