Zechariah 1:19

Context
1:19 So I asked the angelic messenger 1  who spoke with me, “What are these?” He replied, “These are the horns 2  that have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.” 3 

1 tn See the note on the expression “angelic messenger” in v. 9.

2 sn An animal’s horn is a common OT metaphor for military power (Pss 18:2; 75:10; Jer 48:25; Mic 4:13). The fact that there are four horns here (as well as four blacksmiths, v. 20) shows a correspondence to the four horses of v. 8 which go to four parts of the world, i.e., the whole world.
