Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 2:30

_ _ seen thy salvation — Many saw this child, nay, the full-grown “man, Christ Jesus,” who never saw in Him “God’s Salvation.” This estimate of an object of sight, an unconscious, helpless babe, was pure faith. He “beheld His glory” (John 1:14). In another view it was prior faith rewarded by present sight.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 2:25-40.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 2:30

Thy salvation — Thy Christ, thy Saviour.

(n) That is, for I have seen with my very eyes: for he saw before in mind, as it is said of Abraham, "He saw my day and rejoiced."

(o) That in which your salvation is contained.
