Zechariah 14



Verse 4

and the mount of Olives

Zechariah 14:5 implies that the cleavage of the Mount of Olives is due to an earthquake, and this is confirmed by; Isaiah 29:6; Revelation 16:19. In both passages the context, as in Zechariah 14:1-3 associates the earthquake with the Gentile invasion under the Beast; Daniel 7:8; Revelation 19:20. Surely, in a land seamed by seismic disturbances it should not be difficult to believe that another earthquake might cleave the little hill called the Mount of Olives. Not one of the associated events of Zechariah 14 occurred at the first coming of Christ, closely associated though He then was with the Mount of Olives.

Verse 9

king over all the earth

The final answer to the prayer of Matthew 6:10. CF.; Daniel 2:44; Daniel 2:45; Daniel 7:24-27. See "Kingdom (N.T.)"; Luke 1:31-33; 1 Corinthians 15:28.
