Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Zechariah 9:8

_ _ encamp about — (Psalms 34:7).

_ _ mine house — namely, the Jewish people (Zechariah 3:7; Hosea 8:1) [Maurer]. Or, the temple: reassuring the Jews engaged in building, who might otherwise fear their work would be undone by the conqueror [Moore]. The Jews were, in agreement with this prophecy, uninjured by Alexander, though he punished the Samaritans. Typical of their final deliverance from every foe.

_ _ passeth by ... returneth — Alexander, when advancing against Jerusalem, was arrested by a dream, so that neither in “passing by” to Egypt, nor in “returning,” did he injure the Jews, but conferred on them great privileges.

_ _ no oppressor ... pass through ... any more — The prophet passes from the immediate future to the final deliverance to come (Isaiah 60:18; Ezekiel 28:24).

_ _ seen with mine eyes — namely, how Jerusalem has been oppressed by her foes [Rosenmuller] (Exodus 3:7; Exodus 2:25). God is said now to have seen, because He now begins to bring the foe to judgment, and manifests to the world His sense of His people’s wrongs.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Zechariah 9:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Zechariah 9:8

I will encamp — To defend it from all its enemies. Mine house — This temple, but as it is an emblem of the church. The army — Of the Persian and the Grecian army, whose march lay through Judea.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Zechariah 9:8

And I will encamp about (k) my house because of the army, because of him that passeth by, and because of him that returneth: and no oppressor shall pass through them any more: for now (l) have I seen with my eyes.

(k) He shows that God's power alone will be sufficient to defend his Church against all adversaries, be they ever so cruel, or assert their power ever so often.

(l) That is, God has now seen the great injuries and afflictions with which they have been afflicted by their enemies.
