good.
 Grace superabounds; and in thinking of Him, blessing, grace, the mind of God respecting sin, that which God is, as manifested by the presence of Christ, absorb the mind and possess the heart, and are the heart’s true relief in a world like this. (Luke 2 by J.N. Darby)
 God had so manifested Himself by the birth of Jesus that the hosts of heaven, long familiar with His power, could raise their chorus, “Glory to God in the highest!” and every voice unites in sounding forth these praises. What love like this love? And God is love. What a purely divine thought that God has become man! What supremacy of good over evil! (Luke 2 by J.N. Darby)
 Everything depended on the Person and presence of Him who was born. All was wrapped up in Him. The state of blessing was born in the birth of that child. (Luke 2 by J.N. Darby)
 The third thing was the good pleasure-the affection of God-in men. Nothing more simple, since Jesus was a man. (Luke 2 by J.N. Darby)
 From the moment that sin came in there was no pleasure for God in Adam or in his race: but now had appeared One who is of another order of humanity than Adam. (Luke 2 by F.B. Hole)

The later MSS. read as the text or "good will to men." The Edd. adopt "peace to men of good pleasure." Surely this is a prodigious reading, hanging on one added letter. It is not exactly good will toward men, which is here the point. The word expresses God’s good will and complacency in men; it does not say exactly in man, as if it were only in Christ, though surely this was true in the very highest sense.

good pleasure in men: so אcorr LΔ and all later uncials, cursives. Syrrpesch hcl(sin.: "good will to"), Copt. Arm. Aeth., with Basil, Gregory, Naz., etc.; but Revv. with Edd. adopt "peace to men of good pleasure" after אpm Bpm AD, Old Lat. Vulg. Goth., with Iren. Origen (Jer.), Hill, etc. (EEW’s Notes, Exp. of Luke, p.35)
good pleasure in men: … in Luke 2:14 very ancient copies read "in men of good will," a class hard to find in this world; and a strange gospel that peace on earth is for men of good will, glad tidings for such as He has nothing to find fault with. Where are these to be found? Surely this is a prodigious reading, hanging on one added letter, and accepted, not by Rome only, but by Alford, Lachmann, Tischendorf, Tregelles, Westcott and Hort, and others. (Exposition of the Epistles of John the Apostle, p. 171)
good pleasure in men: It is not exactly good will toward men, which is here the point. The word expresses God’s good will and complacency in men; it does not say exactly in man, as if it were only in Christ, though surely this was true in the very highest sense. (Lect. Intro. to the Gospels, p. 250)
good pleasure in men: Verse 14 [in the RV] follows the later editors, or their few but first-rate authorities, ἑν ἀνθρώποις ἐνδοκίας "among men in whom he is well pleased." But Luke was given to magnify the grace of God, not to seal human righteousness. There is good and ample authority for the common text, only rendered "good-will in men," which incarnation proved. (Bible Treasury 13:302)
