Clarke's Bible Commentary - Zechariah 8:16 Verse 16. Speak ye every man the truth] See chap. vii. 9, 10.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 16. These [are] the things that ye shall do , etc.] Which were duties incumbent on them, and which it became them to perform, under a sense of the favours bestowed on them, to show their gratitude to God, and that they might glorify him: Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbour ; not using deceit, prevarication, and lying, ( Ephesians 4:25) and it becomes every man under the Gospel dispensation, according to the gift he has received, to speak, publish, and declare the truth of the Gospel, to the edification of others: execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates ; that is, execute true judgment, as in ( Zechariah 7:9) do justice between man and man, without respect of persons; the issue of which will be peace between the contending parties: and this was to be done in their “gates”, because there their courts of judicature were kept.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 9-17 - Those only who lay their hands to the plough of duty, shall have the strengthened with the promises of mercy: those who avoid their fathers faults have the curse turned into a blessing. Those who believed the promises, were to show their faith by their works, and to wait the fulfilment. When God is displeased, he can cause trade to decay, an set every man against his neighbour; but when he returns in mercy, all is happy and prosperous. Surely believers in Christ must not trifl with the exhortation to put away lying, and to speak every man peac with his neighbour, to hate what the Lord hates, and to love tha wherein he delights.
