    Mine anger was kindled against the shepherds, and I punished the goats: for the LORD of hosts hath visited his flock the house of Judah, and hath made them as his goodly horse in the battle.

    World English Bible

    My anger is kindled against the shepherds, and I will punish the male goats; For Yahweh of Armies has visited his flock, the house of Judah, and will make them as his majestic
    horse in the battle.

    Douay-Rheims - Zechariah 10:3

    My wrath is kindled against the shepherds, and I will visit upon the buck goats: for the Lord of hosts hath visited his flock, the house of Juda, and hath made them as the
    horse of his glory in the battle.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    My anger was kindled against the shepherds, and I punished the goats: for the LORD of hosts hath visited his flock the house of Judah, and hath made them as his goodly
    horse in the battle.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:3

    Contra los pastores se ha encendido mi enojo, y yo visitaré los machos cabríos; mas el SEÑOR de los ejércitos visitará su rebaño, la Casa de Judá, y los tornará como su caballo de honor en la guerra.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Zechariah 10:3

    Verse 3. Mine
    anger was kindled against the shepherds] Bad kings and bad priests. I will punish the goats; these were the wicked priests, who were shepherds by their office, and goats by the impurity of their lives.

    As his goodly horse in the battle.] The honourable war horse, or the horse that carried the general's equipage. In the unaccountable variation of interpreters on these chapters, this, among other things, is thought to be spoken of Matthias, and Judas Maccabeus, who assembled the people from all quarters, as a shepherd gathers his sheep together; and led them against the sons of Greece, the Seleucidae Greeks. Others refer every thing here to times before the captivity.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 3. Mine anger was kindled against the shepherds , etc.] The Targum interprets it of “kings”; as the “goats” of “princes”, in the next clause; by whom, according to Jarchi, Aben Ezra, Kimchi, and Abarbinel, are meant the kings of Greece; but rather the antichristian kings are designed, the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication with the whore of Rome, which is the cause of the anger of the Lord being kindled: or else ecclesiastical rulers are meant, the Romish clergy, the chief of them, as cardinals, archbishops, bishops, etc. who may fitly be represented by the shepherds of Israel in the times of the prophets for their name, professing to be of Israel, or to be Christians; and by them for their ignorance, covetousness, luxury, disregard to the flock, tyranny and cruelty over it, and murder of it; (see Isaiah 56:10), against these the fire of God’s wrath will be kindled, and with it will they be destroyed: and I punished the goats ; not the Seleucidae, as the above Jewish writers; though they may with propriety be so called, since they were the successors of Alexander, signified by the he goat in ( Daniel 8:5) rather the monks and friars, comparable to these for their filthiness and uncleanness; and because they pretend to be guides of the people, and to go before them, and yet use them ill, and push them with their horns of power; wherefore God will punish them, and kill those children of Jezebel with death, ( Revelation 2:22,23): for the Lord of hosts hath visited his flock, the house of Judah ; by sending the Gospel to them, and his Spirit with it, to make it effectual to their conversion; which will be at the time that the antichristian hierarchy will be destroyed; then the Lord’s flock, who have gone astray, shall be returned to the true Shepherd and Bishop of souls, and shall seek the Lord their God, and David their King, and shall be saved by him: a gracious visitation this will be! and hath made them as his goodly horse in the battle ; this denotes that the Jews, when converted, will be bold in their God; valiant for the truth on earth; courageously fight the good fight of faith, and be victorious over their enemies; and that they will be in great honour and esteem among the saints, though so mean and justly despicable now: the sense is, that as the horse shows its strength and courage in battle, so should they; (see Job 39:19-25).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-5 -
    Spiritual blessings had been promised under figurative allusions to earthly plenty. Seasonable rain is a great mercy, which we may ask of God when there is most need of it, and we may look for it to come. We must in our prayers ask for mercies in their proper time. The Lor would make bright clouds, and give showers of rain. This may be a exhortation to seek the influences of the Holy Spirit, in faith and by prayer, through which the blessings held forth in the promises ar obtained and enjoyed. The prophet shows the folly of making addresse to idols, as their fathers had done. The Lord visited the remnant of his flock in mercy, and was about to renew their courage and strengt for conflict and victory. Every creature is to us what God makes it to be. Every one raised to support the nation, as a corner-stone does the building, or to unite those that differ, as nails join the differen timbers, must come from the Lord; and those employed to overcome their enemies, must have strength and success from him. This may be applie to Christ; to him we must look to raise up persons to unite, support and defend his people. He never will say, Seek ye me in vain.
