Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 11:26

_ _ Even so, Father; for so it seemed good — the emphatic and chosen term for expressing any object of divine complacency; whether Christ Himself (see on Matthew 3:17), or God’s gracious eternal arrangements (see on Philippians 2:13).

_ _ in thy sight — This is just a sublime echo of the foregoing words; as if Jesus, when He uttered them, had paused to reflect on it, and as if the glory of it — not so much in the light of its own reasonableness as of God’s absolute will that so it should be — had filled His soul.
