Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Zechariah 10:8

_ _ hiss for them — Keepers of bees by a whistle call them together. So Jehovah by the mere word of His call shall gather back to Palestine His scattered people (Zechariah 10:10; Isaiah 5:26; Ezekiel 36:11). The multitudes mentioned by Josephus [Wars of the Jews, 3:2], as peopling Galilee two hundred years after this time, were a pledge of the future more perfect fulfillment of the prophecy.

_ _ for I have redeemed them — namely, in My covenant purpose “redeemed” both temporally and spiritually.

_ _ as they have increased — in former times.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Zechariah 10:5-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Zechariah 10:8

I will hiss — Though they are now scattered far off, I will call them as a shepherd, and they shall run with speed back to the flock. As they have increased — As they did of old time.
