Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Zechariah 10:9

_ _ sow them among ... people — Their dispersion was with a special design. Like seed sown far and wide, they shall, when quickened themselves, be the fittest instruments for quickening others (compare Micah 5:7). The slight hold they have on every soil where they now live, as also the commercial and therefore cosmopolitan character of their pursuits, making a change of residence easy to them, fit them peculiarly for missionary work [Moore]. The wide dispersion of the Jews just before Christ’s coming prepared the way similarly for the apostles’ preaching in the various Jewish synagogues throughout the world; everywhere some of the Old Testament seed previously sown was ready to germinate when the New Testament light and heat were brought to bear on it by Gospel preachers. Thus the way was opened for entrance among the Gentiles. “Will sow” is the Hebrew future, said of that which has been done, is being done, and may be done afterwards [Maurer], (compare Hosea 2:23).

_ _ shall remember me in far countries — (Deuteronomy 30:1; 2 Chronicles 6:37). Implying the Jews’ return to a right mind in “all the nations” where they are scattered simultaneously. Compare Luke 15:17, Luke 15:18, with Psalms 22:27, “All the ends of the world remembering and turning unto the Lord,” preceded by the “seed of Jacob ... Israel ... fearing and glorifying Him”; also Psalms 102:13-15.

_ _ live — in political and spiritual life.

I will sow them — Their increase shall be like the increase of rich soil that hath much seed cast on it. The people — The Heathen. In far countries — Whithersoever they were driven. With their children — The children born to them shall live, and grow up with them. Turn again — To their city and country.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Zechariah 10:9

And I will (k) sow them among the people: and they shall remember me in far countries; and they shall live with their children, and (l) turn again.

(k) Though they will yet be scattered and seem to be lost, yet it will be profitable to them: for there they will come to the knowledge of my name, which was accomplished under the Gospel, among whom it was first preached.

(l) Not that they would return into their country, but be gathered and joined in one faith by the doctrine of the Gospel.
