    Clarke's Commentary on Luke 1:24

    Hid herself five months - That she might have the fullest proof of the accomplishment of God's promise before she appeared in public, or spoke of her mercies. When a Hindoo female is pregnant of her first child, she avoids the presence of those with whom she was before familiar, as a point of delicacy.

    Barnes' Notes on Luke 1:24

    Hid herself - Did not go forth into public, and concealed her condition. This might have been done that she might spend her time more entirely in giving praise to God for his mercies, and that she might have the fullest proof of the accomplishment of the promise before she appeared in public or spoke of the mercies of God.

    Wesley's Notes on Luke 1:24

    1:24 Hid herself - She retired from company, that she might have the more leisure to rejoice and bless God for his wonderful mercy.
