(b) By the mountains he means the external counsel and providence of God, by which he has from before all eternity declared what will come to pass, and that which neither Satan nor all the world can alter.

Scofield Reference Notes

[2] four chariots

The interpretation of the tenth vision must be governed by the authoritative declaration of Zech 6:5. That which is symbolized by the four chariots with their horses is not the four world-empires of Daniel, but "the four spirits of heaven which go forth from standing before the Lord of all the earth" (Zech 6:5). These "spirits" are angels Lk 1:19 Heb 1:14 and are most naturally interpreted of the four angels of Rev 7:1-3 9:14,15. These have also a ministry earthward, and of like nature with the "spirits" of Zech 6:1-8. viz. judgment. The symbol (chariots and horses) is in perfect harmony with this. Always in Scripture symbolism they stand for the power of God earthward in judgment. Jer 46:9,10 Joel 2:3-11 Nah 3:1-7. The vision, then, speaks of the Lord's judgments upon the Gentile nations north and south in the day of the Lord Isa 2:10-22 Rev 19:11-21.Zechariah 6:1 Parallel Commentaries

This history, written under the direction of the Holy Spirit, was recorded in order that by it the followers of Christ in every age might be impelled to greater zeal and earnestness in the cause of the Saviour. The commission that Christ gave to the disciples, they fulfilled. As these messengers

Grace unto you and peace be multiplied. I Pet 1:1.

Political, or peace in the state. Peace is the nurse of plenty. He maketh peace in thy borders,

Zechariah
CHAPTERS I-VIII Two months after Haggai had delivered his first address to the people in 520 B.C., and a little over a month after the building of the temple had begun (Hag. i. 15), Zechariah appeared with another message of encouragement.
