Verses 1-14

Jerusalem’s Day of Mourning

Zechariah 12:1-14

This vision refers to a time yet future, when the Jews shall have returned to their own land, but still in unbelief; and will be assailed by their foes, though in vain, Zechariah 12:2-3 ; Zechariah 12:6 . The Lord will defend them, Zechariah 12:7-8 . Then the nation will mourn. Their repentance will be universal , from the highest to the lowest; lonely , and on account of the sufferings they inflicted on Jesus . The Agent of this mourning will be the Holy Spirit; and it will eventuate in the full forgiveness of sin through the blood of atonement and an entire cleansing from idols.
