Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Zechariah 9:16

_ _ save them ... as the flock of his people — as the flock of His people ought to be saved (Psalms 77:20). Here the image of war and bloodshed (Zechariah 9:15) is exchanged for the shepherd and flock, as God will give not only victory, but afterwards safe and lasting peace. In contrast to the worthless sling-stones trodden under foot stand the (gems) “stones of the crown (Isaiah 62:3; Malachi 3:17), lifted up as an ensign,” that all may flock to the Jewish Church (Isaiah 11:10, Isaiah 11:12; Isaiah 62:10).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Zechariah 9:12-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Zechariah 9:16

As the flock — As a shepherd saves his flock. As the stones of a crown — Precious in my sight. As an ensign — Or trophy.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Zechariah 9:16

And the LORD their God shall save them in that day as the flock of his people: for they [shall be as] the (a) stones of a crown, lifted up as an ensign upon his land.

(a) The faithful will be preserved, and reverenced by all, that their very enemies will be compelled to esteem them: for God's glory will shine in them, as Josephus declares of Alexander the great when he met Jadi the high priest.
