THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO LUKE - Chapter 1 - Verse 66

Verse 66. What manner of child, &c. Such were the remarkable circumstances of his birth that they apprehended that he would be distinguished as a prophet, or that great events would result from his life.

The hand {k} of the Lord was with him. The word hand is used to denote aid, protection, favour. We stretch out the hand to aid those whom we wish to help. The expression here means that God aided him, protected him, or showed him favour. Some think that these words are a part of the speech of the neighbours — "What manner of child shall this be? God is so evidently with him!"

{i} "laid them up" Lu 2:19,51 {k} Ps 80:17
