Bible Commentary for Luke 1:29

Wesley's Notes for Luke 1:29


1:27 Espoused - It was customary among the Jews, for persons that married to contract before witnesses some time before. And as Christ was to be born of a pure virgin, so the wisdom of God ordered it to be of one espoused, that to prevent reproach he might have a reputed father, according to the flesh.

1:28 Hail, thou highly favoured; the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women - Hail is the salutation used by our Lord to the women after his resurrection: thou art highly favoured, or hast found favour with God, #Lu 1:30|, is no more than was said of Noah, Moses, and David. The Lord is with thee, was said to Gideon, #Jud 6:12|; and blessed shall she be above women, of Jael, #Jud 5:24|. This salutation gives no room for any pretence of paying adoration to the virgin; as having no appearance of a prayer, or of worship offered to her.
