Luke 2:19 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Kept (συνετήρει)

See on the simple verb τηρέω, on 1 Peter 1:4. The word signifies not merely to guard, but to keep, as the result of guarding. Hence the compound verb is very expressive: kept, σύν, with or within herself: closely. Note the imperfect tense: was keeping all the while.

Pondered (συμβάλλουσα)

The present participle, pondering. Lit., bringing together: comparing and weighing facts. Wyc., bearing together in her heart. Vulg., conferens. Compare Sophocles, "Oedipus Coloneus," 1472-4.

"Oedipus. My children, the heaven-ordained end of life has come upon him who stands here, and there is no avoiding it.

"Antigone. How dost thou know, and with what (fact) having compared (συμβαλὼν) thine opinion hast thou this ?"
