Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Zechariah 11:6

_ _ Jehovah, in vengeance for their rejection of Messiah, gave them over to intestine feuds and Roman rule. The Zealots and other factious Jews expelled and slew one another by turns at the last invasion by Rome.

_ _ his king — Vespasian or Titus: they themselves (John 19:15) had said, unconsciously realizing Zechariah’s words, identifying Rome’s king with Judah’s (“his”) king, “We have no king but Caesar.” God took them at their word, and gave them the Roman king, who “smote (literally, ‘dashed in pieces’) their land,” breaking up their polity, when they rejected their true King who would have saved them.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Zechariah 11:4-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Zechariah 11:6

I will deliver — To rob, imprison, banish, or kill each other. Of his king — The Roman Caesar, whom the Jews had chosen to be so. The land — Their king and his armies shall destroy the land.
