John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. Again the word of the Lord of hosts came [to me] saying .] The phrase, “to me”, is wanting in the Hebrew text; and is the only place it is wanting in, as the Masora observes; though undoubtedly it is to be understood; and therefore is rightly supplied, as it is by the Targum, “with me”. Mention being made in the latter part of the preceding chapter ( Zechariah 7:8-14) of the desolations of the earth, comfort is here administered, as Aben Ezra notes.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-8 - The sins of Zion were her worst enemies. God will take away her sins and then no other enemies shall hurt her. Those who profess religio must adorn their profession by godliness and honesty. When become city of truth and a mountain of holiness, Jerusalem is peaceable an prosperous. Verses #(4, 5), beautifully describe a state of grea outward peace, attended with plenty, temperance, and contentment. The scattered Israelites shall be brought together from all parts. God wil never leave nor forsake them in a way of mercy, for this he ha promised them; and they shall never leave nor forsake him in a way of duty, as they have promised him. These promises were partly fulfille in the Jewish church, betwixt the captivity and the time of Christ' coming; and they had fuller accomplishment in the gospel church; but the full import must be as to the future times of the Christian church or the future restoration of the Jews. With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible; so far are God's thoughts and way above ours. In the present low state of vital godliness, we can hardl conceive that so complete a change can be made; but a change thu extensive and glorious, can be brought to pass by the almighty power of the new-creating Spirit, in less time than he was pleased to employ in creating the world. Let the hands of all who labour in the cause of the gospel be strong, serving the Lord in true holiness, assured that their labour shall not be in vain.
