    SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:4

    De él saldrá el ángulo, de él la clavija, de él el arco de guerra, de él también todo angustiador.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Zechariah 10:4

    Verse 4. Out of him came forth the
    corner] This is spoken of the tribe of Judah: all strength, counsel, and excellence came from that tribe. The corner stone, the ornament and completion of the building; the nail, by which the tents were fastened, and on which they hung their clothes, armour, &c., the battlebow, the choicest archers.

    Every oppressor together.] Those heroes and generals, by whom, under God, their foes should be totally routed. Newcome translates, "Every ruler together." Perhaps all this is spoken of the Messiah.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 4. Out of him came forth the corner , etc.] Or “cornerstone”; by which is meant a king or ruler, as the Targum, Jarchi, and Kimchi; and is no other than the King Messiah, who was to come out of Judah, and did spring from that tribe, ( 1 Chronicles 5:2 Hebrews 7:14) and this is a reason why God will visit the house of Judah, or the Jews, in the latter day, because the Messiah was promised and sent unto them, salvation was of them, though they rejected him; but the Lord will have mercy on them; the Redeemer shall come to Zion in a spiritual manner, and turn away iniquity from them, and then all Israel shall be saved by him. The epithet of a “corner” stone well agrees with him, that being not only the ornament, but the strength and support of the building, which knits, cements, and keeps the whole together: Christ is a beautiful and precious cornerstone, which gives glory and lustre to the church, and is the support, yea, the foundation of it; and who joins and unites together men and angels; Jews and Gentiles; Old and New Testament saints; saints above and below; saints in all ages and places, and of all nations and denominations; and is the Head of the corner, being superior to men and angels, to the kings of the earth, and to the church of God; (see Ephesians 2:20). Out of him the nail ; the Targum is, “out of him his Messiah”; which shows that this text was formerly understood of Christ by the Jews; Jarchi and Kimchi interpret it of a prince and governor; so Eliakim the governor is said to be “as a nail in a sure place”, ( Isaiah 22:23) who was a type of Christ; and this agrees with Christ himself. The allusion is either to a nail, by which the timber in the building is compacted together, and the whole is strengthened, as the church is by Christ: or to a nail to which the cords of tents are fastened, as those of shepherds, travellers, or soldiers; the church is as such a tent; Christ is the nail to which its cords are fastened, which denotes the stability and security of it: or to a nail fixed in a wall, on which things are hung; on Christ are hung all the vessels of mercy; the covenant of grace, and all its promises and blessings; and all the glory of his Father’s house, of his building, the temple, and of the salvation of his people, is to be hung on him. Out of him the battle bow ; or “warrior”, as Jarchi interprets it; the Lord is a man of war; Christ makes war in righteousness; the armies of heaven follow him; he is at the head of them, and fights the battles of his people, and is victorious, and makes them more than conquerors; their spiritual armour is from him, and they are armed by him, ( Revelation 19:11-14) out of him every oppressor together : or “exactor” f230 ; which is used in a good sense, ( Isaiah 60:17) as it must be here, since all the rest of the epithets are; and may design the apostles of Christ, who preached the doctrines of grace and righteousness, and required of men the obedience of faith; and these came out of Judah and Jerusalem, and went into all the world, demanding faith in and obedience to the Son of God.

    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.
