Luke 2:19 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 2:19

But Mary kept all these things
Which the shepherds had related to her:

and pondered [them] in her heart;
or compared them in her mind, with what had been said to herself by the angel, and also by her husband, as well as what was said by Elisabeth at the time she made her a visit; but she said nothing of them to others, lest she should be thought an enthusiast, or a vain boaster; and therefore left things, till time should make a discovery of them in a proper way, and in the best season.
