Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 2:38

_ _ coming in — “presenting herself.” She had been there already but now is found “standing by,” as Simeon’s testimony to the blessed Babe died away, ready to take it up “in turn” (as the word rendered “likewise” here means).

_ _ to all them, etc. — the sense is, “to all them in Jerusalem that were looking for redemption” — saying in effect, In that Babe are wrapt up all your expectations. If this was at the hour of prayer, when numbers flocked to the temple, it would account for her having such an audience as the words imply [Alford].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 2:25-40.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 2:38

To all that were waiting for redemption — The sceptre flow appeared to he departing from Judah, though it was not actually gone: Daniel's weeks were plainly near their period. And the revival of the spirit of prophecy, together with the memorable occurrences relating to the birth of John the Baptist, and of Jesus, could not but encourage and quicken the expectation of pious persons at this time. Let the example of these aged saints animate those, whose hoary heads, like theirs, are a crown of glory, being found in the way of righteousness. Let those venerable lips, so soon to be silent in the grave, be now employed in the praises of their Redeemer. Let them labour to leave those behind, to whom Christ will be as precious as he has been to them; and who will be waiting for God's salvation, when they are gone to enjoy it.
