Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Zechariah 1:17

_ _ yet — though heretofore lying in abject prostration.

_ _ My cities — not only Jerusalem, but the subordinate cities of Judah. God claims them all as peculiarly His, and therefore will restore them.

_ _ through prosperity ... spread abroad — or overflow; metaphor from an overflowing vessel or fountain (compare Proverbs 5:16) [Pembellus]. Abundance of fruits of the earth, corn and wine, and a large increase of citizens, are meant; also spiritual prosperity.

_ _ comfort Zion — (Isaiah 40:1, Isaiah 40:2; Isaiah 51:3).

_ _ choose — (Zechariah 2:12; Zechariah 3:2; Isaiah 14:1). Here meaning, “show by acts of loving-kindness that He has chosen.” His immutable choice from everlasting is the fountain whence flow all such particular acts of love.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Zechariah 1:7-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Zechariah 1:17

Through prosperity — Through increase of families, they shall send forth colonies, and plant new cities, and thro' increase of wealth, and cattle, be able to build their cities, and stock their colonies.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Zechariah 1:17

Cry yet, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; My cities through prosperity shall yet (q) be spread abroad; and the LORD shall yet comfort Zion, and shall yet choose Jerusalem.

(q) The abundance will be so great, that the places of storage will not be able to contain these blessings that God will send, but will even break because of fullness.
