Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Luke 2:14


2:14 Glory be to God in the highest; on earth peace; good will toward men - The shouts of the multitude are generally broken into short sentences. This rejoicing acclamation strongly represents the piety and benevolence of these heavenly spirits: as if they had said, Glory be to God in the highest heavens: let all the angelic legions resound his praises. For with the Redeemer's birth, peace, and all kind of happiness, come down to dwell on earth: yea, the overflowings of Divine good will and favour are now exercised toward men.


People's Bible Notes for Luke 2:14


Lu 2:14 Glory to God. The life of the Lord Jesus Christ upon the earth was the working out and development of the song of the angels. It was "Glory to God" illustrated in his consecration and death. It was peace in all the utterances of his lips; peace in his Gospel. It was good will toward men; for every thought, word and act of that blessed life was the translation of God's infinite love into forms visible to the mortal eyes that saw him.

    God says to Moses For I am a JEALOUS God yet God also instructs Moses that human vanity jealously is a sin. God also commanded though shall not kill,yet He assisted Joshua in murdering all caanintes. Hard to inturpet as just.
