Zechariah 4:10 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Who hath despised the day of small things? - The poverty, weakness, and unbefriended state of the Jews. It was said, "What do these feeble Jews?" "Will they build," etc.? No. But God will build by them, and perfect his building too.
And shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel - He is master builder under God, the grand architect.

2 Chronicles 16:9
For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. You have done a foolish thing, and from now on you will be at war."
and in the presence of his associates and the army of Samaria, he said, "What are those feeble Jews doing? Will they restore their wall? Will they offer sacrifices? Will they finish in a day? Can they bring the stones back to life from those heaps of rubble--burned as they are?"
The eyes of the LORD are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.
My eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from me, nor is their sin concealed from my eyes.
The creatures sped back and forth like flashes of lightning.
