Gary H. Everett's Study Notes on the Holy Scriptures

Zechariah 14

 

 

Verses 1-21

Zechariah 14:5 — "like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah" - Comments- This event is mentioned in one other place in the Scriptures. For example, the prophet Amos uses it to date his prophetic ministry ( Amos 1:1).

Amos 1:1, "The words of Amos , who was among the herdmen of Tekoa, which he saw concerning Israel in the days of Uzziah king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash king of Israel, two years before the earthquake."

Zechariah 14:12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.

Zechariah 14:12Comments- Grant Jeffery and others believe that Zechariah 14:12 gives a very clear and detailed description of a nuclear blast consuming the flesh of a man. 12]
