Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Zechariah 12:7

_ _ Judah is to be “first saved,” because of her meek acknowledgment of dependence on Jerusalem, subordinate to Jehovah’s aid.

_ _ tents — shifting and insecure, as contrasted with the solid fortifications of Judah. But God chooses the weak to confound the mighty, that all human glorying may be set aside.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Zechariah 12:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Zechariah 12:7

The tents — The unfenced places, the open country, the cottages, or tents. First — First the weaker are saved, next the stronger. The glory — That the illustrious house of David, and the glorious citizens of Jerusalem may not boast of their power, policy and courage.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Zechariah 12:7

The LORD also shall save the (d) tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem may not magnify [themselves] against Judah.

(d) The people who are now as it were dispersed by the fields, and lie open to their enemies, will be preserved by my power just as if they were under their kings (which is meant by the house of David), or in their defended cities.
