    SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:6

    Y le preguntarán: ¿Qué heridas son éstas que tienes en tus manos? Y él responderá: Con ellas fui herido en Casa de mis amigos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Zechariah 13:6

    Verse 6. What are these
    wounds in thine hands?] Marks which he had received in honour of his idols. But he shall excuse himself by stating that he had received these marks in his own family; when, most probably, they had been dedicated to some of those idols. See the note on Isa. xliv. 5. I do not think that these words are spoken at all concerning Jesus Christ. I have heard them quoted in this way; but I cannot hear such an application of them without horror. In quoting from the Old Testament in reference to the New, we cannot be too cautious. We may wound the truth instead of honouring it.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 6. And [one] shall say unto him, What [are] these
    wounds in thine hands ? etc.] That is, if thou art not a prophet, what is the meaning of these wounds in thine hands? which design either those his father and mother had given him, when they thrust him through for being a false prophet, ( Zechariah 13:3) or the mark of the beast he received in his right hand, which he was obliged to take when he entered into holy orders, ( Revelation 13:9,16,17), or the wounds and stripes he gave himself, in the exercise of his superstition and will worship: then he shall answer, [Those] with which I was wounded [in] the house of my friends ; he will pretend that these were wounds he had privately in his father’s family, by way of correction, for not doing his civil and secular business as he ought to have done; or he shall be obliged to confess the mark of the beast on him; or that these were wounds he had given himself in the temples and churches, dedicated to angels and saints, his patrons, friends, and lovers; with whom he committed spiritual adultery or idolatry, and before whose images and shrines he had cut and given himself these wounds and gashes, to the great dishonour of Christ, as if his crucifixion and wounds were of no avail; wherefore his sufferings and death are next spoken of: and some understand these words of Christ, introduced after this manner; the prophet having spoken of the false prophet, thrust through by his parents, because that Christ would be reckoned a false prophet and impostor by his countrymen the Jews, and be crucified by them as such, represents the Jews as upbraiding him with his crucifixion, which they suggest he righteously suffered, for seducing their nation: to which he replies, that indeed he was crucified, and thereby wounded with the nails drove into his hands and feet; and this usage he met with from those of his own nation, and who pretended to be the friends of the Messiah, and to expect his coming, and this at or near Jerusalem, where was the temple or house of God; but all this he endured, not for any crime he had been guilty of, but according to the counsel and will, purpose and decree, of God; whereby he was appointed the Shepherd of the flock; the Mediator between God and man; the Saviour of his people; and to die such a death, in order to obtain salvation for them; which counsel and will of God are clearly and strongly expressed in the following verse ( Zechariah 13:7): and to this sense Capellus interprets the words.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-6 - In the
    time mentioned at the close of the foregoing chapter, a fountai would be opened to the rulers and people of the Jews, in which to was away their sins. Even the atoning blood of Christ, united with his sanctifying grace. It has hitherto been closed to the unbelievin nation of Israel; but when the Spirit of grace shall humble and softe their hearts, he will open it to them also. This fountain opened is the pierced side of Christ. We are all as an unclean thing. Behold fountain opened for us to wash in, and streams flowing to us from tha fountain. The blood of Christ, and God's pardoning mercy in that blood made known in the new covenant, are a fountain always flowing, tha never can be emptied. It is opened for all believers, who as the spiritual seed of Christ, are of the house of David, and, as livin members of the church, are inhabitants of Jerusalem. Christ, by the power of his grace, takes away the dominion of sin, even of belove sins. Those who are washed in the fountain opened, as they ar justified, so they are sanctified. Souls are brought off from the worl and the flesh, those two great idols, that they may cleave to God only The thorough reformation which will take place on the conversion of Israel to Christ, is here foretold. False prophets shall be convince of their sin and folly, and return to their proper employments. When convinced that we are gone out of the way of duty, we must show the truth of our repentance by returning to it again. It is well to acknowledge those to be friends, who by severe discipline ar instrumental in bringing us to a sight of error; for faithful are the wounds of a friend, Pr 27:6. And it is always well for us to recollec the wounds of our Saviour. Often has he been wounded by professe friends, nay, even by his real disciples, when they act contrary to his word.
