Chapter 4 is symbolic about Governor Zerubabbel and High Priest Joshua being God’s special servants. 4:6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, “Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.” Again, Zerubabbel is a type of Christ (4:7).

Zechariah 5 is highly symbolic language about God’s judgment of liars and those who swear falsely by His name.

Chapter 8 unconditionally promises restoration of both Judah and Israel along with other nations who see the LORD.
NOTABLE TEXT: 9:9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.
