My Musings – Perplexed, filled with uncertainty, confusion, doubt, concerned, worried – “greatly troubled.” Unmarried (having never “known” a man – a virgin), yet pregnant. Yeah, greatly troubled probably covers it. Joseph had to consider the news too and was probably filled with his own uncertainty and doubt. What could this possibly mean for them? Yet they did not despair (having an utter loss of hope).
My Advice – Absent His first coming, to die for our sins, we would be utterly without hope. That would be something to be greatly troubled about. But we need not be if we have accepted His gift.
