Introduction

1:11 away (a-14) In those days conquerors transported conquered nations to distant seats, and replaced them by others, that national feeling might not subsist, but dependence be complete. 'Carrying away' is feeble for this, but I know no other word.

Verse 1

2:1 born (d-5) Lit. 'begotten,' but used for 'born.' In ver. 2 it is the fact of being brought forth -- of course strictly of the mother. It was the actual fact of his being born or brought forth that the magi refer to.

Verse 5

2:5 through (e-15) See ch. 1.22. prophet. (f-17) Micah 5:2 .

Verse 6

2:6 who (g-27) Hostis , 'who is such as.' see ch. 7.24.

Verse 7

2:7 inquired (h-8) Or 'learned.' so ver. 16. appearing; (i-19) It is evident that the star had not been all the way, but now reappeared. see ver. 10. 'The time' is practically when it appeared; 'how long since?'

Verse 12

2:12 instructed (k-4) It signifies an answer after consultation, as ver. 22; hence an oracular or divine answer, not merely warning.

Verse 13

2:13 Lord (c-10) See Note, ch. 1.20.

Verse 15

2:15 Lord (c-20) See Note, ch. 1.20. saying, (l-24) Hosea 11:1 .

Verse 17

2:17 through (a-8) Dia . see ch. 1.22; Jeremiah 31:15 . that (c-11) 'That that might be,' ch. 1.22; 'so that that should be,' as here; and, 'then was fulfilled,' ver. 17, are never confounded in the quotations of the Old Testament. The first is the object of the prophecy; the second, not simply its object, but an event which was within the scope and intention of the prophecy; the third is merely a case in point, where what happened was an illustration of what was said in the prophecy.

Verse 20

2:20 sought (b-21) Lit. the seekers of.' The article and participle are used as a noun, characterizing the persons.

Verse 23

2:23 through (a-19) Dia . see ch. 1.22; Jeremiah 31:15 . that (c-11) 'That that might be,' ch. 1.22; 'so that that should be,' as here; and, 'then was fulfilled,' ver. 17, are never confounded in the quotations of the Old Testament. The first is the object of the prophecy; the second, not simply its object, but an event which was within the scope and intention of the prophecy; the third is merely a case in point, where what happened was an illustration of what was said in the prophecy. Nazaraean. (d-27) Perhaps a reference to Isaiah 11:1 , the Hebrew for 'Branch' being Netzer .
