And when they came into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshiped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.
All Commentaries on Matthew 2:11 Go To Matthew 2
Remigius of Rheims
And it was not enough to say, “They rejoiced,” but “they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.”.
He adds, “greatly,” shewing that men rejoice more over what they have lost than over what they possess.
And it is to be known that each did not offer a different gift, but each one the three kings, each one thus proclaiming the King, the God, and the man.
