A.M. 3486. B.C. 518.

The prophet, having accounted for God’s past severity to the Jews, proceeds, in this chapter,

(1,) To inform them, that the anger of the Lord was now appeased; and that he was again disposed to be gracious unto his people, and to restore Jerusalem, Zechariah 8:1-8 . He therefore,

(2,) Exhorts them to proceed vigorously with the building of the temple, and assures them that they would, from that instant, experience a happy revolution in their affairs, Zechariah 8:9-15 .

(3,) He renews his exhortation to the practice of moral righteousness, and promises that, on that condition, their fasts should be turned into joyful feasts; and they should be so distinguished by the divine favour, that many nations would be eager to embrace their religion, and sue for their alliance, Zechariah 8:16-23 .
