SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:5 ¬∂ Y serŠn como valientes, que en la batalla pisan al enemigo en el lodo de las calles; y pelearŠn, porque el SE—OR serŠ con ellos; y los que cabalgan en caballos serŠn avergonzados.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Zechariah 10:5 Verse 5. They shall be as mighty men] The Maccabees and their successors.
Riders on horses] The Macedonians, who opposed the Maccabees, and had much cavalry; whereas the Jews had none, and even few weapons of war; yet they overcame these horsemen.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 5. And they shall be as mighty [men] , etc.] That is, the converted Jews shall be such; they shall be strong in faith, giving glory to the Messiah; they shall be strong in the grace that is in him; they shall be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might; his strength shall be made perfect in their weakness: which tread down [their enemies] in the mire of the streets in the battle ; being victorious over sin, Satan, and the world, through Christ, in whom they will believe: and they shall fight ; against all their inward and outward enemies, the good fight of faith, with great valour and courage: because the Lord [is] with them ; who is the Lord of hosts or armies; his presence gives boldness and intrepidity; for, if he is for them, who can be against them? the battle is theirs, success is certain: and the riders on horses shall be confounded ; such that come up against them on them, and trust in them, shall be beaten by them, and so made ashamed; and the flesh, both of the horses and their riders, shall be the food of the fowls of the air, ( Revelation 19:18) perhaps the Turkish cavalry is meant, who may attempt to hinder the settlement of the Jews in their own land; the armies of the Turks consisting greatly of horsemen, ( Revelation 9:16).
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.
