And the child grew, and was strengthened in spirit, and he was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.
Luke 1:80 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The child grew - Increased in stature and bodily vigor. And waxed strong in spirit - had his understanding Divinely illuminated and confirmed in the truths of God. And was in the deserts - the city of Hebron, the circumjacent hill country, and in or near Nazareth. Till the time of his showing, or manifestation - till he was thirty years of age, before which time the law did not permit a man to enter into the public ministry, Numbers 4:3. See also Luke 3:23.
So much has already been said, by way of practical improvement of the different subjects in this important chapter, as to preclude the necessity of any addition here.
