Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 1:6

_ _ commandments and ordinances — The one expressing their moral — the other their ceremonial — obedience [Calvin and Bengel], (Compare Ezekiel 11:20; Hebrews 9:1). It has been denied that any such distinction was known to the Jews and New Testament writers. But Mark 12:33, and other passages, put this beyond all reasonable doubt.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 1:5-25.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 1:6

Walking in all the moral commandments, and ceremonial ordinances, blameless — How admirable a character! May our behaviour be thus unblamable, and our obedience thus sincere and universal!

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Luke 1:6

And they were both (i) righteous before God, (k) walking in all the (l) commandments and ordinances of the Lord (m) blameless.

(i) The true mark of righteousness is demonstrated when one is liked and accepted in the judgment of God.

(k) Lived, as the Hebrews say, for our life is as a way in which we must walk until we come to the mark.

(l) In all the moral and ceremonial law.

(m) Whom no man could justly reprove: now so it is that the fruits of justification are set forth here, and not the cause, which is faith only, and nothing else.
