SEV Biblia, Chapter 11:12 Y les dije: Si os parece bien, dadme mi salario; y si no, dejadlo. Y apreciaron mi salario en treinta piezas de plata.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Zechariah 11:12 Verse 12. If ye think good, give me my price] "Give me my hire." And we find they rated it contemptuously; thirty pieces of silver being the price of a slave, Exod. xxi. 32.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 12. And I said unto them, If ye think good , etc.] Not to the poor of the flock that waited on him, and knew the word of the Lord, and valued it; but to the other Jews that despised Christ and his Gospel: give me my price ; or, “give my price” f250 ; what I am valued at by you, to Judas the betrayer: or the price due unto him for feeding the flock, such as faith in him, love to him, reverence and worship of him. So the Targum paraphrases it, “do my will”. Kimchi says the price is repentance, and good works: and if not, forbear ; unless all is done freely, willingly, and cheerfully; (see Ezekiel 2:5,7) or, if worth nothing, give nothing: So they weighed for my price thirty [pieces] of silver ; the price a servant was valued at, ( Exodus 21:32) see the fulfilment of this prophecy in ( Matthew 26:15). The Jews own that this prophecy belongs to the Messiah; but wrongly interpret it of thirty precepts given by him: in just retaliation and righteous judgment, thirty Jews were sold by the Romans for a penny, by way of contempt of them f252 .
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 4-14 - Christ came into this world for judgment to the Jewish church an nation, which were wretchedly corrupt and degenerate. Those have their minds wofully blinded, who do ill, and justify themselves in it; but God will not hold those guiltless who hold themselves so. How can we go to God to beg a blessing on unlawful methods of getting wealth, or to return thanks for success in them? There was a general decay of religion among them, and they regarded it not. The Good Shepherd woul feed his flock, but his attention would chiefly be directed to the poor. As an emblem, the prophet seems to have taken two staves; Beauty denoted the privileges of the Jewish nation, in their nationa covenant; the other he called Bands, denoting the harmony whic hitherto united them as the flock of God. But they chose to cleave to false teachers. The carnal mind and the friendship of the world ar enmity to God; and God hates all the workers of iniquity: it is easy to foresee what this will end in. The prophet demanded wages, or a reward and received thirty pieces of silver. By Divine direction he cast it to the potter, as in disdain for the smallness of the sum. This shadowe forth the bargain of Judas to betray Christ, and the final method of applying it. Nothing ruins a people so certainly, as weakening the brotherhood among them. This follows the dissolving of the covenan between God and them: when sin abounds, love waxes cold, and civi contests follow. No wonder if those fall out among themselves, who have provoked God to fall out with them. Wilful contempt of Christ is the great cause of men's ruin. And if professors rightly valued Christ they would not contend about little matters.
