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
