Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Zechariah 6:13

_ _ bear the glory — that is, wear the insignia of the kingly glory, “the crowns” (Psalms 21:5; Psalms 102:16; Isaiah 52:13). He himself shall bear the glory, not thou, Joshua, though thou dost bear the crowns. The Church’s dignity is in her head alone, Christ. So Eliakim, type of Messiah, was to have “all the glory of his father’s house hung upon him” (Isaiah 22:24).

_ _ sit — implying security and permanence.

_ _ priest ... throne — (Genesis 14:18; Psalms 110:4; Hebrews 5:6, Hebrews 5:10; Hebrews 6:20; Hebrews 7:1-28).

_ _ counsel of peace ... between ... both — Joshua and Zerubbabel, the religious and civil authorities co-operating in the temple, typify the peace, or harmonious union, between both the kingly and priestly offices. The kingly majesty shall not depress the priestly dignity, nor the priestly dignity the kingly majesty [Jerome]. The peace of the Church, formerly sought for in the mutual “counsels” of the kings and the priests, who had been always distinct, shall be perfectly ensured by the concurrence of the two offices in the one Messiah, who by His mediatorial priesthood purchases it, and by His kingly rule maintains it. Vitringa takes “His throne” to be Jehovah the Father’s. Thus it will be, “there shall be ... peace between the Branch and Jehovah” [Ludovicus De Dieu]. The other view is better, namely, “Messiah’s throne.” As Priest He expiates sin; as King, extirpates it. “Counsel of peace,” implies that it is the plan of infinite “wisdom,” whence Messiah is called “Counselor” (Isaiah 9:6; Ephesians 1:8, Ephesians 1:11; Hebrews 6:17). Peace between the kingly and priestly attributes of Messiah implies the harmonizing of the conflicting claims of God’s justice as a King, and His love as a Father and Priest. Hence is produced peace to man (Luke 2:14; Acts 10:36; Ephesians 2:13-17). It is only by being pardoned through His atonement and ruled by His laws, that we can find “peace.” The royal “throne” was always connected with the “temple,” as is the case in the Apocalypse (Revelation 7:15), because Christ is to be a king on His throne and a priest, and because the people, whose “king” the Lord is, cannot approach Him except by a priestly mediation [Roos]. Jesus shall come to effect, by His presence (Isaiah 11:4; Daniel 7:17), that which in vain is looked for, in His absence, by other means. He shall exercise His power mediatorially as priest on His throne (Zechariah 6:13); therefore His reign is for a limited period, which it could not be if it were the final and everlasting state of glory. But being for a special purpose, to reconcile all things in this world, now disordered by sin, and so present it to God the Father that He may again for the first time since the fall come into direct connection with His creatures; therefore it is limited, forming the dispensation in the fullness of times (Ephesians 1:10), when God shall gather in one all things in Christ, the final end of which shall be, “God all in all” (1 Corinthians 15:24-28).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Zechariah 6:9-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Zechariah 6:13

The glory — Of both kingly and priestly office; the glory of both those crowns shall abide on him. Shall sit — Which speaks both his royal magnificence, and the perpetuity of it. A priest — The great high — priest, to offer the great sacrifice to God, to make reconciliation, to intercede for his people. The counsel of peace — The peace made for God's people shall rest upon these two, the kingly and priestly office of Christ; by his priestly office he shall make their peace with God, by his kingly office he shall deliver them from their spiritual enemies.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Zechariah 6:13

Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear the (q) glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between (r) them both.

(q) Of which Joshua had but a shadow.

(r) The two offices of the kingdom and priesthood, will be joined together in such a way, that they will no longer be separated.
