Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Zechariah 2:13

_ _ Be silent, O all flesh — (Habakkuk 2:20). “Let all in silent awe and reverence await the Lord’s coming interposition in behalf of His people!” The address is both to the Gentile foes, who prided themselves on their power as if irresistible, and to the unbelieving Jews, who distrusted God’s promises as incredible. Three reasons why they must be silent are implied: (1) they are but “flesh,” weak and ignorant; (2) He is Jehovah, all-wise and all-powerful; (3) He is already “raised up out of His place,” and who can stand before Him? [Pembellus], (Psalms 76:8, Psalms 76:9).

_ _ he is raised up out of his holy habitation — that is, out of heaven (Deuteronomy 26:15; 2 Chronicles 30:27; Isaiah 63:15), to judge and avenge His people (Isaiah 26:21); or, “out of His holy” temple, contemptible and incomplete as it looked then when Zechariah urged them to rebuild it [Calvin]. But the call to all to “be silent” is rather when God has come forth from heaven where so long He has dwelt unseen, and is about to inflict vengeance on the foe, before taking up His dwelling in Zion and the temple. However, Psalms 50:1, Psalms 50:2 (“Out of Zion”), Psalms 50:3 (compare Habakkuk 2:3), Psalms 50:4, favors Calvin’s view. God is now “silent” while the Gentile foe speaks arrogance against His people; but “our God shall come and no longer keep silence”; then in turn must all flesh “be silent” before Him.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Zechariah 2:10-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Zechariah 2:13

Be silent — Reverence and adore God, and expect the accomplishment of his word. All flesh — Both Jew and Gentile. He is raised up — God is on this work already, and he will not sit down again, 'till he has accomplished his whole work.
