Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Zechariah 1:10

_ _ answered — The “angel of the covenant” here gives the reply instead of the interpreting angel, to imply that all communications through the interpreting angel come from Him as their source.

_ _ Lord hath sent to walk to and fro through the earth — If “Satan walks to and fro in the earth” (implying restless activity) on errands of mischief to God’s people (Job 1:7), the Lord sends other angels to “walk to and fro” with unceasing activity everywhere to counterwork Satan’s designs, and to defend His people (Psalms 34:7; Psalms 91:11; Psalms 103:20, Psalms 103:21; Hebrews 1:14).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Zechariah 1:7-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Zechariah 1:10

These — Horsemen, are angels, who are ministers of the Divine Providence in the government of the world.
