Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Luke 1:68-79.

Luke 1:69

_ _ horn of salvation — that is “strength of salvation,” or “mighty Salvation,” meaning the Savior Himself, whom Simeon calls “Thy Salvation” (Luke 2:30). The metaphor is taken from those animals whose strength is in their horns (Psalms 18:2; Psalms 75:10; Psalms 132:17).

_ _ house of ... DavidThis shows that Mary must have been known to be of the royal line, independent of Joseph; of whom Zacharias, if he knew anything, could not know that after this he would recognize Mary.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 1:67-80.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 1:69

A horn — Signifies honour, plenty, and strength. A horn of salvation — That is, a glorious and mighty Saviour.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Luke 1:69

And hath raised up an (i) horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David;

(i) This word "horn", in the Hebrew language, signifies strength, and it is a metaphor taken from beasts that fight with their horns: And by raising up the might of Israel is meant that the kingdom of Israel was defended, and the enemies of it laid on the ground, even then when the strength of Israel seemed to be utterly gone.
