Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Zechariah 1:2

_ _ God fulfilled His threats against your fathers; beware, then, lest by disregarding His voice by me, as they did in the case of former prophets, ye suffer like them. The special object Zechariah aims at is that they should awake from their selfish negligence to obey God’s command to rebuild His temple (Haggai 1:4-8).

_ _ sore displeasedHebrew, “displeased with a displeasure,” that is, vehemently, with no common displeasure, exhibited in the destruction of the Jews’ city and in their captivity.
