Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 2:20

_ _ glorifying and praising God, etc. — The latter word, used of the song of the angels (Luke 2:13), and in Luke 19:37, and Luke 24:53, leads us to suppose that theirs was a song too, probably some canticle from the Psalter — meet vehicle for the swelling emotions of their simple hearts at what “they had heard and seen.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 2:8-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 2:20

For all the things that they had heard — From Mary; as it was told them — By the angels.
