Zechariah 12:1 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

The burden of the word of the Lord - This is a new prophecy. It is directed both to Israel and Judah, though Israel alone is mentioned in this verse.

Which stretcheth forth the heavens - See on Isaiah 42:5 (note).

Formeth the spirit of man within him - Then it is not the same substance with his body. It is a Spirit within Him.
