    The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.

    World English Bible

    An oracle. The word of Yahweh concerning Israel. Yahweh, who stretches out the heavens, and lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him says:

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:1

    ¶ Carga de la palabra del SEÑOR sobre Israel. Dijo el SEÑOR, el que extiende los cielos, y funda la tierra, y forma el espíritu del hombre dentro de él.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Zechariah 12:1

    Verse 1. The burden of the word of the
    Lord] This is a new prophecy.

    It is directed both to Israel and Judah, though Israel alone is mentioned in this verse.

    Which stretcheth forth the heavens] See on Isa. xlii. 5.

    Formeth the spirit of man within him.] Then it is not the same substance with his body. It is a SPIRIT within HIM.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel , etc.] And against their enemies; for the good of the church of God, for its joy, comfort, and salvation; or, “concerning Israel” f263 ; what shall befall them in the latter day, as the destruction of antichrist, prophesied of in the preceding chapter ( Zechariah 11:1-17); and what is hereafter said may be believed that it shall be accomplished. The Lord is described in the greatness of his power, speaking as follows: saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens : as a curtain, ( <19A402> Psalm 104:2) the expanse or firmament of heaven, which is stretched out as a canopy over all the earth around: and layeth the foundation of the earth ; firm and sure, though upon the seas and floods, yea, upon nothing, ( Psalm 24:2 Job 26:7): and formeth the spirit of man within him ; the soul of man, with all its powers and faculties, gifts and endowments; which is of his immediate creation, and which he continues daily to form, and infuse into the bodies of men, and holds in life there; hence he is called the Father of spirits, ( Hebrews 12:9).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-8 - Here is a
    Divine prediction, which will be a heavy burden to all the enemies of the church. But it is for Israel; for their comfort an benefit. It is promised that God will make foolish the counsels, an weaken the courage of the enemies of the church. The exact meaning is not clear; but God often begins by calling the poor and despised; an in that day even the feeblest will resemble David, and be as eminent i courage and every thing good. Desirable indeed is it that the example and labours of Christians should render them as fire among wood, as torch in a sheaf, to kindle the flame of Divine love, to sprea religion on the right hand and on the left.
