Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Zechariah 12:6

_ _ On “governors of Judah,” see on Zechariah 9:7.

_ _ hearth — or pan.

_ _ torch ... in a sheaf — Though small, it shall consume the many foes around. One prophet supplements the other. Thus Isaiah 29:1-24; Joel 3:1-21; Zechariah 12:1-14:21, describe more Antichrist’s army than himself. Daniel represents him as a horn growing out of the fourth beast or fourth kingdom; St. John, as a separate beast having an individual existence. Daniel dwells on his worldly conquests as a king; St. John, more on his spiritual tyranny, whence he adds a second beast, the false prophet coming in a semblance of spirituality. What is briefly described by one is more fully prophesied by the other [Roos].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Zechariah 12:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Zechariah 12:6

Like a hearth — A hearth on which fire is thoroughly kindled. In her own place — Not built as Nineveh, Babylon, or Rome, in some place near old cities, but in the very same place where old Jerusalem stood.
