Luke 2:35

_ _ Yea, etc. — “Blessed as thou art among women, thou shalt have thine own deep share of the struggles and sufferings which this Babe is to occasion” — pointing not only to the continued obloquy and rejection of this Child of hers, those agonies of His which she was to witness at the cross, and her desolate condition thereafter, but to dreadful alternations of faith and unbelief, of hope and fear regarding Him, which she would have to pass through.

_ _ that the thoughts, etc. — Men’s views and decisions regarding Christ are a mirror in which the very “thoughts of their hearts” are seen.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 2:25-40.
