SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:9 Así habló el SEÑOR de los ejércitos, diciendo: Juzgad juicio verdadero, y haced misericordia y piedad cada cual con su hermano;
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Zechariah 7:9 Verse 9. Execute true judgment] See the parallel texts in the margin.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 9. Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying , etc.] The same things as he had before; for the things following are ever in force, and always to be attended to, and to be regarded and preferred before anything merely ritual and ceremonial; and especially before the traditions and commandments of men, of which nature the above fasts were: Execute true judgment ; or, “judge judgment of truth”; this is addressed to the judges of the people, that when any cause came before them between man and man, that they would judge righteously, according to the law of God; and, without respect to persons, pass sentence as the truth of the case required: and show mercy and compassion every man to his brother ; whether in want of food, raiment, or in whatsoever distress, whether of body or mind; which is much more acceptable to God than any legal sacrifices, or outward abstinences and humiliations, ( Hosea 6:6 1 John 3:17).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 8-14 - God's judgements upon Israel of old for their sins, were written to warn Christians. The duties required are, not keeping fasts an offering sacrifices, but doing justly and loving mercy, which tend to the public welfare and peace. The law of God lays restraint upon the heart. But they filled their minds with prejudices against the word of God. Nothing is harder than the heart of a presumptuous sinner. See the fatal consequences of this to their fathers. Great sins against the Lord of hosts, bring great wrath from his power, which cannot be resisted. Sin, if regarded in the heart, will certainly spoil the success of prayer. The Lord always hears the cry of the broken-hearte penitent; yet all who die impenitent and unbelieving, will find n remedy or refuge from miseries which while here they despised an defied, but which they then will not be able to bear __________________________________________________________________
