And I myself will be a wall of fire around it,” declares the LORD, “and I will be its glory within” (Zechariah 2:5).

Part 1 . . . The last four verses of Zechariah 1 describe the prophet’s second vision. Although relatively brief, its meaning is not necessarily straightforward. In effect, the second vision reinforces the first, that is, from the standpoint that God’s justice would prevail.

When Zechariah saw the four horns, he asked the angel what they were. To which, the angel said they were the horns, meaning the instruments or countries, that were used to scatter the people of the lands of Israel, Jerusalem, and Judah. The implication herein is because of their rebellion against God. Hum, is there a message for us in this?
