    King James Bible - Zechariah 8:23

    Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.

    World English Bible

    Thus says Yahweh of Armies: "In those days, ten
    men will take hold, out of all the languages of the nations, they will take hold of the skirt of him who is a Jew, saying, 'We will go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.'"

    Douay-Rheims - Zechariah 8:23

    Thus saith the Lord of hosts : In those days, wherein ten
    men of all languages of the Gentiles shall take hold, and shall hold fast the shirt of one that is a Jew, saying: We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    Thus saith the LORD of hosts: In those days it shall come to pass, that ten
    men out of all languages of the nations, shall take hold, shall even take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:23

    Así dijo el SEÑOR de los ejércitos: En aquellos días acontecerá que diez varones de todas las lenguas de los gentiles, tomarán del manto del varón judío, diciendo: Iremos con vosotros, porque hemos oído que Dios está con vosotros.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Zechariah 8:23

    Verse 23. Ten men-shall take hold of the
    skirt of him that is a Jew] The converts from among the Gentiles shall be to the Jews as ten to one.

    But ten may here signify a great number, without comparison. And from this scripture it appears as if the Jews, converted to God, should be the instruments of converting many Gentiles. See on Isa. iii. 6. Catching hold of the skirt is a gesture naturally used to entreat assistance and protection.

    This and the three foregoing verses, says Abp. Newcome, refer to the great accession of converts which the Jewish Church received between the captivity and the coming of Christ; to the number of Christian disciples which the Jewish preachers made, and to the future conversions of which the restoration of the Jews will be an eminent cause.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 23. Thus saith the Lord of hosts , etc.] For the further confirmation and illustration of this prophecy: in those days [it shall come to pass] ; this shall be done in the times of the preaching of the Gospel by Christ and his apostles: that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take bold of the skirt of him that is a Jew : which may be understood either of our Lord Jesus Christ; who was a Jew by nation, the Jews were his own people, and Judea his nation; by descent, he springing from the tribe of Judah, and the family of David; by religion, being made under the Jewish law; by his habit and dress, by which, as well as by his language, the woman of Samaria knew he was a Jew, ( John 4:9) and very probably he wore the fringe the Jews did on the border of his garment, ( Matthew 9:20 Mark 6:56) and which the Jewish doctors think is here meant f164 by the skirt; but this may intend, in a spiritual sense, the skirt being put for the whole garment, ( Ezekiel 16:8), the robe of Christ’s righteousness, which sensible sinners take hold of by faith, and put it on as their justifying righteousness: and “ten men” out of “all nations” being said to do it, and this number signifying many, ( Leviticus 26:26 1 Samuel 1:8) may denote that the number of them that believe in Christ for righteousness, and are justified by it, are many, ( Isaiah 53:11) though they are but few when compared with others; and that as God has chosen, Christ has redeemed, so the Spirit calls some out of all nations; and God is the God of the Gentiles as well as of the Jews, since the one are justified by him as well as the other, ( Romans 3:29,30) or this may be understood of any of the apostles of Christ, who were all Jews; and especially the Apostle Paul, who was the apostle of the Gentiles; who were sent into all the world to preach the Gospel to the Gentiles, by which means they came to hear it; and many of them out of every nation laid hold on the skirts of these men; believed and embraced the doctrines they preached; were greatly affected towards them; gave up themselves to them; consorted with them; accompanied them, and cleaved unto them; did not care to part with them, as children, that lay hold on their parents’ skirts, will not leave them, but go with them where they go, as follows: saying, We will go with you ; either with Christ, resolving to follow him whithersoever he goes; to hold to him the Head; to abide by his truths and ordinances; to walk on in his ways, whatever they suffer for his name’s sake: or with his ministers and people, determining to go along and join with them in all religious exercises; (see Ruth 1:16): for we have heard [that] God is with you : with Christ, as he always was; in the council and covenant of grace before time, and at the beginning of time to his incarnation; and during his state of humiliation, and in his sufferings and death; and now in his state of exaltation; hence his name “Ithiel”, God with me, (Proverbs 30: 1 John 1:1 8:29 16:32) or with his ministers and people, which he has promised to be unto the end of the world; and this the Gentiles heard and understood, by the power that went along with their ministry, to the conversion of multitudes of sinners; and by the miracles which they wrought, for the confirmation of the doctrines they delivered.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 18-23 - When
    God comes towards us in ways of mercy, we must meet him with jo and thankfulness. Therefore be faithful and honest in all you dealings; and let it be a pleasure to you to be so, though thereby yo come short of the gains others get dishonestly; and, as much as in yo lies, live peaceably with all men. Let the truths of God rule in you heads, and let the peace of God rule in your hearts. Thus the ancien servants of God drew the notice of heathen neighbours, whose prejudice were softened. A great increase to the church shall be made. Hithert the Jews had been prone to learn the idolatries of other nations: what more unlikely than that they should teach religion to their conquerors and to all the principal nations of the earth! Yet this is expressl foretold, and it came to pass. Hitherto the prophecy has bee wonderfully fulfilled, and no doubt future events will explain it further. It is good to be with those who have God with them; if we tak God for our God, we must take his people for our people, and be willin to take our lot with them. But let not any one think that mere zeal either for Jews or Gentiles, will stand in the place of persona religion. Let us be living epistles of Christ, known and read of all men, so that others may wish to go with us, and to have their portio with us in the realms of bliss __________________________________________________________________
