Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Zechariah 2:12

_ _ Judah his portion in the holy land — Lest the joining of the Gentile “nations to Jehovah” (Zechariah 2:11) should lead the Jews to fear that their peculiar relation to Him (Deuteronomy 4:20; Deuteronomy 9:29; Deuteronomy 32:9) as “His inheritance” should cease, this verse is added to assure them of His making them so hereafter “again.”

_ _ choose Jerusalem again — The course of God’s grace was interrupted for a time, but His covenant was not set aside (Romans 11:28, Romans 11:29); the election was once for all, and therefore shall hold good for ever.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Zechariah 2:10-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Zechariah 2:12

Shall inherit — Claim, recover, possess, and delight in, as a man doth in his paternal inheritance.
