Young's Literal Translation
And I have poured on the house of David, And on the inhabitant of Jerusalem, A spirit of grace and supplications, And they have looked unto Me whom they pierced, And they have mourned over it, Like a mourning over the only one, And they have been in bitterness for it, Like a bitterness over the first-born.

Zechariah 12:10 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

I will pour upon the house of David - This is the way in which the Jews themselves shall be brought into the Christian Church.

1. "They shall have the spirit of grace," God will show them that he yet bears favor to them.

2. They shall be excited to fervent and continual prayer for the restoration of the Divine favor.

3. Christ shall be preached unto them; and they shall look upon and believe in him whom they pierced, whom they crucified at Jerusalem.

4. This shall produce deep and sincere repentance; they shall mourn, and be in bitterness of soul, to think that they had crucified the Lord of life and glory, and so long continued to contradict and blaspheme, since that time.

Pastor, for the round of toil See the toiling soul is fed; Shut the chamber, light the oil, Break and eat the Spirit's bread; Life to others would'st thou bring? Live thyself upon thy King.
