Verse of the Day (June 30, 2020) #BMSeminary – {the LORD will be king} This continues the motif of YHWH as King of the earth (cf. Zec 14:16-17; 1Sa 8:7; 1Sa 12:12; Psa 93:1; Psa 97:1; Psa 99:1). In Zec 9:9 it is the Messiah who is king (cf. Isa 9:6-7; Jer 10:7; Jer 23:5). YHWH does not become King. He has always been King, but now all humans recognize it (cf. Mat 6:10). {over all the earth} Here is the continuing theme of the universal reign of God (cf. Zec 14:6; Psa 22:27-28; Psa 47:8-9; Isa 2:2-4; Isa 45:2-3). {in that day the LORD will be the only one, and His name the only one} This is an emphasis on monotheism (cf. Exo 8:10; Exo 9:14; Deu 4:35; Deu 4:39; Deu 6:4-5; Deu 33:26; 1Sa 2:2; 2Sa 22:32; 1Ki 8:23; Psa 86:8; Isa 46:9; Jer 10:6-7). [You Can Understand the Bible by Dr. Bob Utley]
