Verse 19. Mary kept all these things. All that happened, and all that was said respecting her child. She remembered what the angel had said to her; what had happened to Elisabeth and to the shepherds—-all the extraordinary circumstances which had attended the birth of her son. Here is a delicate and beautiful expression of the feelings of a mother. A mother forgets none of those things which occur respecting her children. Everything they do or suffer —everything that is said of them, is treasured up in her mind; and often, often, she thinks of those things, and anxiously seeks what they may indicate respecting the future character and welfare of her child.

Pondered. Weighed. This is the original meaning of the word weighed. She kept them; she revolved them; she weighed them in her mind, giving to each circumstance its just importance, and anxiously seeking what it might indicate respecting her child.

In her heart. In her mind. She thought of these things often and anxiously.
