1 In the eight moneth, in the seconde yeere of Darius, came the word of the Lord vnto Zechariah, the sonne of Barachiah, the sonne of Iddo the Prophet, saying,

2 The Lord hath bene sore displeased with your fathers.

3 Therefore say thou vnto them, Thus saith the Lord of hostes; Turne ye vnto me, saith the Lord of hostes, and I will turne vnto you, saith the Lord of hostes.

4 Be ye not as your fathers, vnto whom the former Prophets haue cried, saying, Thus saith the Lord of hostes, Turne ye now from your euill wayes, and from your euil doings: but they did not heare, nor hearken vnto me, saith the Lord.

5 Your fathers, where are they? and the Prophets, doe they liue for euer?

6 But my words and my statutes, which I commanded my seruants the Prophets, did they not take holde of your fathers? and they returned and saide; Like as the Lord of hostes thought to doe vnto vs, according to our wayes, and according to our doings, so hath he dealt with vs.

7 Upon the foure and twentieth day of the eleuenth moneth, which is the moneth Sebat, in the second yere of Darius, came the word of the Lord vnto Zechariah, the sonne of Barachiah, the sonne of Iddo the Prophet, saying:

8 I saw by night, and behold a man riding vpon a red horse, and he stood among the mirtle trees that were in the bottome, and behinde him were there red horses, speckled and white.

9 Then said I, O my Lord, what are these? And the Angel that talked with me, said vnto me, I wil shew thee what these be.

10 And the man that stood among the myrtle trees answered, and said, These are they, whom the Lord hath sent to walke to and fro through the earth.

11 And they answered the Angel of the Lord that stood among the mirtle trees, and said, Wee haue walked to and fro through the earth: and behold, all the earth sitteth still, and is at rest.

12 Then the Angel of the Lord answered, and said, O Lord of hosts, how long wilt thou not haue mercie on Ierusalem, and on the cities of Iudah, against which thou hast had indignation these threescore and ten yeeres?

13 And the Lord answered the Angel that talked with me, with good words, and comfortable words.

14 So the Angel that communed with me, said vnto me; Cry thou, saying; Thus saith the Lord of hosts, I am iealous for Ierusalem, and for Zion, with a great iealousie.

15 And I am very sore displeased with the heathen that are at ease: for I was but a little displeased, and they helped forward the affliction.

16 Therefore thus saith the Lord, I am returned to Ierusalem with mercies: my house shall bee built in it, saith the Lord of hostes, and a line shalbe stretched forth vpon Ierusalem.

17 Cry yet, saying, Thus saith the Lord of hostes, My cities through prosperitie shall yet be spread abroad, and the Lord shall yet comfort Zion, and shall yet choose Ierusalem.

18 Then lift I vp mine eyes, and saw, and behold foure hornes.

19 And I said vnto the Angel that talked with me; What be these? and he answered mee, These are the hornes which haue scattered Iudah, Israel, and Ierusalem.

20 And the Lord shewed mee foure carpenters.

21 Then said I, What come these to doe? And hee spake, saying, These are the hornes which haue scattered Iudah, so that no man did lift vp his head: but these are come to fray them, to cast out the hornes of the Gentiles, which lift vp their horne ouer the land of Iudah to scatter it.

Insight 777's Zechariah Chapter 1 comment on 3/15/2015, 2:08am...

Verse 16, the Lord is all powerful yet he uses human men to achieve his goals on earth. The line drawn may be similar to the Distant Early Warning, DEW, line that is an intercontinental defense radar installation for detection of incoming missiles or aircraft. Verse 19, these horns may be the 4 nations bound at the Euphrates, Syria, Turkey, Iraq and Iran. If they have scattered Judah, Israel and Jerusalem then battles have occurred. People, the public, flee away from areas of combat, they scatter. Also the military scatter towards areas that are attacked as defense. Verse 5 of Zechariah chapter 2 supports this as the wall of fire could be response to anything crossing the DEW line that will be destroyed with missiles or advanced weapons thereby protecting the Lords people.


Jerry Leonard's Zechariah Chapter 1 comment on 1/16/2015, 6:33am...

Zechariah Chapter 1, in verse 12 I believe these threescore and ten years is same 70 years as in Isaiah Chapter 23, verses 17 and 18. Notice Chapter 2, verse 12 it says the holy land the same as it is called today. You need to read Chapter 1, starting at v. 8 thru chapter 2,.I believe this is the 70 years after Israel became a nation in 1948.


LA Shawn Dinkins's Zechariah Chapter 1 comment on 2/05/2014, 8:21pm...

In this verse of scripture, Zechariah is having a dream 'saw by night' means dreaming. God's main purpose for hid people then was to be holy and to have the right relationship with him. Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness... then all things shall be added unto you. This principle is still yet the purpose for the elect.


KINGSLEY's Zechariah Chapter 1 comment about verse 17 on 12/20/2013, 7:47am...

As i reflect i belive that the should not be any person that has believe GOD and has got the prof of JESUS in your life as saviour and u are und serious pover in health, finance, relationship with brothers. The wealth GOD give to his sheperd is to shair it as king David did in Isreal. The most not be any true believer that should lack. in GOD city no body own any thing. GOD children are supose to com toger bring their things together and shair among those in need and non amoung them should lack. KING JESUS CHRIST will b our sheperd and u need no want. Every body wil like it and GOD CITY WILL SPREAD.


Kevin's Zechariah Chapter 1 comment on 12/04/2013, 4:34pm...

I agree with you both. I think the commentary, gives us as Christians, a broad look at just where and how we stand as believers in the body of Christ. I like the comments on where we stand as spiritual bodies, and how the enemies of the church can rest in sin, while we groan in trials, temptations, and tribulations, knowing that we STILL!!!! Have the victory in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Peace by with you brothers,,,,kt
