Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Zechariah 13:8-9.


Zechariah 13:9

_ _ through ... fire — of trial (Psalms 66:10; Amos 4:11; 1 Corinthians 3:15; 1 Peter 1:6, 1 Peter 1:7). It hence appears that the Jews’ conversion is not to precede, but to follow, their external deliverance by the special interposition of Jehovah; which latter shall be the main cause of their conversion, combined with a preparatory inward shedding abroad in their hearts of the Holy Spirit (Zechariah 12:10-14); and here, “they shall call on My name,” in their trouble, which brings Jehovah to their help (Psalms 50:15).

_ _ my people — (Jeremiah 30:18-22; Ezekiel 11:19, Ezekiel 11:20; Hosea 2:23).
