Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Zechariah 9:14

_ _ Another image: “Jehovah shall be seen (conspicuously manifesting His power) over them” (that is, in behalf of the Jews and against their foes), as formerly He appeared in a cloud over the Israelites against the Egyptians (Exodus 14:19, Exodus 14:24).

_ _ his arrow ... as ... lightning — flashing forth instantaneous destruction to the foe (Psalms 18:14).

_ _ blow ... trumpet — to summon and incite His people to battle for the destruction of their foe.

_ _ go with whirlwinds of the south — that is, go forth in the most furious storm, such as is one from the south (Isaiah 21:1). Alluding, perhaps, to Jehovah’s ancient miracles at Sinai coming “from Teman” (“the south,” in the Margin).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Zechariah 9:12-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Zechariah 9:14

Shall be seen — Shall manifestly appear for them. His arrow — His judgments, swift, irresistible, and sudden. As the lightning — Which breaks forth with violence, and runs from east to west in a moment. The Lord God — Their God, the God of Israel, shall give the alarm to them, and sound the call to bring them together. Of the south — In which the mightiest whirlwinds are raised; some think the prophet alludes to the tempest at the delivery of the law.
