Zechariah 9:4 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Will smite her power in the sea - See Ezekiel 26:17. Though Alexander did take Tyre, Sidon, Gaza, etc.; yet it seems that the prediction relative to their destruction was fulfilled by Nebuchadnezzar. See Amos 1:6-8; Zephaniah 2:4, Zephaniah 2:7.
