Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Zechariah 6:15

_ _ they ... far off shall ... build — The reason why the crowns were made of gold received from afar, namely, from the Jews of Babylon, was to typify the conversion of the Gentiles to Messiah, King of Israel. This, too, was included in the “peace” spoken of in Zechariah 6:13 (Acts 2:39; Ephesians 2:12-17). Primarily, however, the return of the dispersed Israelites “from afar” (Isaiah 60:9) to the king of the Jews at Jerusalem is intended, to be followed, secondly, by the conversion of the Gentiles from “far off” (Zechariah 2:11; Zechariah 8:2, Zechariah 8:23; Isaiah 60:10; Isaiah 57:19).

_ _ build in the temple — Christ “builds the temple” (Zechariah 6:12, Zechariah 6:13; Hebrews 3:3, Hebrews 3:4): His people “build in the temple.” Compare Hebrews 3:2, “Moses in His house.”

_ _ ye shall know, etc. — when the event corresponds to the prediction (Zechariah 2:9; Zechariah 4:9).

_ _ this shall come to pass, if ye ... obey, etc. — To the Jews of Zechariah’s day a stimulus is given to diligent prosecution of the temple building, the work which it was meanwhile their duty to fulfil, relying on the hope of the Messiah afterwards to glorify it. The completion of the temple shall “come to pass,” if ye diligently on your part “obey the Lord.” It is not meant that their unbelief could set aside God’s gracious purpose as to Messiah’s coming. But there is, secondarily, meant, that Messiah’s glory as priest-king of Israel shall not be manifested to the Jews till they turn to Him with obedient penitence. They meanwhile are cast away “branches” until they be grafted in again on the Branch and their own olive tree (Zechariah 3:8; Zechariah 12:10-12; Matthew 23:39; Romans 11:16-24).

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Zechariah 6:15

They that are far off — This verse hath a double reference, one to the Jews, and the building of the material temple, the other to the bringing in of the Gentiles. And this — The literal part shall come to pass in your day, if you will obey the voice of the Lord. The mystical part shall come to pass also, and, if you will believe and obey, the Gentiles shall come in and be your brethren, and help to build the temple, the spiritual temple. But if you rebel and obey not, you shall be cast out and the Gentiles be taken in, to be God's people.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Zechariah 6:15

And they [that are] (x) far off shall come and build in the temple of the LORD, and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me to you. And [this] shall come to pass, if ye will diligently (y) obey the voice of the LORD your God.

(x) That is, the Gentiles by the preaching of the Gospel, will help toward the building of the spiritual temple.

(y) If you will believe and remain in the obedience of faith.
