Clarke's Bible Commentary - Zechariah 1:14 Verse 14. I am jealous for Jerusalem] I have for them a strong affection; and indignation against their enemies.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 14. So the angel that communed with me , etc.] Having an order from the other Angel, or the Lord of hosts: said unto me, Cry thou ; proclaim, publish, declare in the hearing of the people, for their comfort and encouragement. The Targum renders it, “prophesy”: saying, Thus saith the Lord of hosts, I am jealous for Jerusalem, and for Zion, with a great jealousy ; which is expressive of his conjugal affection for his church and people, his zeal for their good, and his indignation at their enemies, and of the vengeance he would execute on them.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 7-17 - The prophet saw a dark, shady grove, hidden by hills. This represente the low, melancholy condition of the Jewish church. A man like warrior sat on a red horse, in the midst of this shady myrtle-grove Though the church was in a low condition, Christ was present in the midst, ready to appear for the relief of his people. Behind him wer angels ready to be employed by him, some in acts of judgment, others of mercy, others in mixed events. Would we know something of the mysterie of the kingdom of heaven, we must apply, not to angels, for they ar themselves learners, but to Christ himself. He is ready to teach thos humbly desirous to learn the things of God. The nations near Jude enjoyed peace at that time, but the state of the Jews was unsettled which gave rise to the pleading that followed; but mercy must only be hoped for through Christ. His intercession for his church prevails. The Lord answered the Angel, this Angel of the covenant, with promises of mercy and deliverance. All the good words and comfortable words of the gospel we receive from Jesus Christ, as he received them from the Father, in answer to the prayer of his blood; and his ministers are to preach them to all the world. The earth sat still, and was at rest. It is not uncommon for the enemies of God to be at rest in sin, while his people are enduring correction, harassed by temptation, disquieted by fears of wrath, or groaning under oppression and persecution. Here ar predictions which had reference to the revival of the Jews after the captivity, but those events were shadows of what shall take place in the church, after the oppression of the New Testament Babylon is ended.
