11进了房子,看见小孩和他母亲马利亚,就俯伏拜他,并且打开宝盒,把黄金、乳香、没药作礼物献给他。




11 ¶ And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.
11 Verse 11. They presented unto him gifts] The people of the

east never approach the presence of kings and great personages,

without a present in their hands. This custom is often noticed in

the Old Testament, and still prevails in the east, and in some of

the newly discovered South Sea Islands.



Gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.] Some will have these gifts

to be emblematic of the Divinity, regal office, and manhood of

Christ. "They offered him incense as their God; gold as their

king; and myrrh, as united to a human body, subject to suffering

and death." Aurum, thus, myrrham, regique, DEO, HOMINIQUE, dona

ferunt. JUVENCUS. Rather, they offered him the things which were

in most esteem among themselves; and which were productions of

their own country. The gold was probably a very providential

supply, as on it, it is likely, they subsisted while in Egypt.
