Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Zechariah 6:8

_ _ north ... quieted ... my spirit — that is, caused My anger to rest (Judges 8:3, Margin; Ecclesiastes 10:4; Ezekiel 5:13; Ezekiel 16:42). Babylon alone of the four great world kingdoms had in Zechariah’s time been finally punished; therefore, in its case alone does God now say His anger is satisfied; the others had as yet to expiate their sin; the fourth has still to do so.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Zechariah 6:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Zechariah 6:8

Cried he — Christ spake aloud, and called to him. Quieted my spirit — By doing what I appointed them in revenge of my peoples injuries, and by bringing my people back into Canaan.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
