Zechariah 14

Morgan's Exposition on the Whole BibleMorgan's Exposition

Verses 1-21

The prophet finally described the ultimate victories of the King, commencing with a description of the smiting of the Shepherd and the scattering of the sheep. Of this scattering a remnant would be loyal, and they would become the people of Jehovah.

The prophet then described the ultimate day of the Lord, which would be ushered in by Jehovah coming to the Mount of Olives in the Person of His King. This advent would initiate the new processes of the settlement of the land, and the cleansing of Jerusalem by judgment, to be followed by the establishment of the Kingdom, in which all nations would gather to Jerusalem as a center of worship, those refusing being punished, while all life would be consecrated.
