    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:15

    Y con gran enojo estoy airado contra los gentiles que están reposados; porque yo estaba enojado un poco, y ellos ayudaron para el mal.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Zechariah 1:15

    Verse 15. I was but a little displeased] I was justly displeased with my people, and I gave their
    enemies a commission against them; but they carried this far beyond my design by oppression and cruelty; and now they shall suffer in their turn.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 15. And I am very sore displeased with the
    heathen [that are] at ease , etc.] The Chaldeans and Persians, and other nations, enemies of the Jews, who were now free from war, and enjoyed great prosperity, when the state and condition of the Jews was very low and discouraging: for I was but a little displeased : that is, with his people the Jews, for their ingratitude, idolatry, and immorality; and which displeasure he showed by suffering them to be carried into captivity; (see Isaiah 54:8): and they helped forward the affliction ; that is, the heathens, among whom the Jews were carried captive; they added to their affliction; they oppressed them more than they ought to have done, and more than was agreeable to the will of God and right in his sight; and they insulted them in their misery, and rejoiced over them. The word rz[ , in the Arabic language, signifies to “abound” f20 ; and the meaning is, that they abounded in bringing evil upon the people of the Jews; they multiplied their afflictions and distresses.

    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.
