Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Zechariah 13:4

_ _ prophets ... ashamed — of the false prophecies which they have uttered in times past, and which the event has confuted.

_ _ rough garment — sackcloth. The badge of a prophet (2 Kings 1:8; Isaiah 20:2), to mark their frugality alike in food and attire (Matthew 3:4); also, to be consonant to the mournful warnings which they delivered. It is not the dress that is here condemned, but the purpose for which it was worn, namely, to conceal wolves under sheep’s clothing [Calvin]. The monkish hair-shirt of Popery, worn to inspire the multitude with the impression of superior sanctity, shall be then cast aside.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Zechariah 13:1-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Zechariah 13:4

A rough garment — Such as the true prophets were wont to wear.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

(f) God will make them ashamed of their errors and lies, and bring them to repentance, and they will no more wear prophet's apparel to make their doctrine seem more holy.
