SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:1 Â¶ En el mes octavo, en el año segundo de Darío, vino palabra del SEÑOR a Zacarías profeta, hijo de Berequías, hijo de Iddo, diciendo:
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Zechariah 1:1 Verse 1. In the eighth month, in the second year ot Darius] This was Darius Hystaspes; and from this date we find that Zechariah began to prophecy just two months after Haggai.
Son of Iddo] There are a number of various readings on this name, wdy Iddo, and awd[ Iddo, both in MSS. and in editions; but they are only different ways of writing the same name.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. In the eighth month , etc.] The month Marchesvan, called the month Bul, in ( 1 Kings 6:38) which answers to part of our October, and part of November: this was but two months from the first prophecy of Haggai, ( Haggai 1:1) and but a few days after his second, ( Haggai 2:1) so near were the prophecies of these two prophets together: in the second year of Darius : king of Persia; not Darius the Mede, but Darius the son of Hystaspes: came the word of the Lord unto Zechariah ; that is, “the word of prophecy from before the Lord”, as the Targum paraphrases it; which came to him, either in a dream, or in a vision, or by an impulse on his mind; who is described by his descent, the son of Barachias; mention is made of this name in ( Matthew 23:35). It signifies “the blessed of the Lord”, and is the same with Eulogius or Benedictus: the son of Iddo the prophet : the word “prophet”, as Kimchi observes, belongs to Zechariah; not but that his grandfather Iddo might be a prophet too; and the same writer takes notice, that in the Midrash mention is made of Iddo the prophet; and so there is an Iddo that is called the seer and the prophet in ( 2 Chronicles 9:29 12:15 13:22) but whether the same with this is not certain. The name is by some thought to be the same with Firmicus, Statius, Robertus: saying ; as follows:
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-6 - God's almighty power and sovereign dominion, should engage an encourage sinners to repent and turn to Him. It is very desirable to have the Lord of hosts for our friend, and very dreadful to have his for our enemy. Review what is past, and observe the message God sent by his servants, the prophets, to your fathers. Turn ye now from your evi ways, and from your evil doings. Be persuaded to leave your sins, a the only way to prevent approaching ruin. What is become of ou fathers, and of the prophets that preached to them? They are all dea and gone. Here they were, in the towns and countries where we live passing and repassing in the same streets, dwelling in the same houses trading in the same shops and exchanges, worshipping God in the sam places. But where are they? When they died, there was not an end of them; they are in eternity, in the world of spirits, the unchangeabl world to which we hasten apace. Where are they? Those of them who live and died in sin, are in torment. Those who lived and died in Christ are in heaven; and if we live and die as they did, we shall be with them shortly and eternally. If they minded not their own souls, is tha a reason why their posterity should ruin theirs also? The prophets ar gone. Christ is a Prophet that lives for ever, but all other prophet have a period put to their office. Oh that this consideration had it due weight; that dying ministers are dealing with dying people abou their never-dying souls, and an awful eternity, upon the brink of whic both are standing! In another world, both we and our prophets shal live for ever: to prepare for that world ought to be our great care in this. The preachers died, and the hearers died, but the word of God died not; not one jot or title of it fell to the ground; for he is righteous.
