Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Zechariah 11:3

_ _ shepherds — the Jewish rulers.

_ _ their glorytheir wealth and magnificence; or that of the temple, “their glory” (Mark 13:1; Luke 21:5).

_ _ young lions — the princes, so described on account of their cruel rapacity.

_ _ pride of Jordan — its thickly wooded banks, the lair of “lions” (Jeremiah 12:5; Jeremiah 49:19). Image for Judea “spoiled” of the magnificence of its rulers (“the young lions”). The valley of the Jordan forms a deeper gash than any on the earth. The land at Lake Merom is on a level with the Mediterranean Sea; at the Sea of Tiberias it falls six hundred fifty feet below that level, and to double that depression at the Dead Sea, that is, in all, 1950 feet below the Mediterranean; in twenty miles’ interval there is a fall of from three thousand to four thousand feet.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Zechariah 11:1-3.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Zechariah 11:3

Of the shepherds — The enemy having driven away their flocks and herds. Their glory — What was their honour. Of Jordan — The great forests on the banks of Jordan, where the young lions were wont to range.
