    Clarke's Commentary on Ezra 5:1

    Haggai - and Zechariah - These are the same whose writings we have among the twelve minor prophets.

    The son of Iddo - That is, the grandson of Iddo; for Zechariah was the son of Barachiah, the son of Iddo. See his prophecy, Zechariah 1:1 (note).

    Barnes' Notes on Ezra 5:1

    Haggai and Zechariah stirred up Zerubbabel and Joshua Ezr 5:2; Haggai 1:14, and warned the people against neglecting the building of the temple, in order to give themselves to the beautifying of their own houses (see Haggai 1:4, Haggai 1:9). Zechariah was the son of Berechiah, and grandson of Iddo (see the marginal reference; Matthew 23:35). Compare a similar application of "son" in the case of Jehu (see the 2 Kings 9:20 note).

    In the name of the God of Israel, even unto them - Rather, "in the name of the God of Israel, which was upon them." The two prophets addressed the Jews, in respect of their being God's people, or, in Hebrew phrase (see the Jeremiah 15:16 margin), "having God's name called upon them."

    Wesley's Notes on Ezra 5:1

    5:1 The son - His grand - child; for he was the son of Baraciah. Prophesied - Commanding them from God to return to building the temple, with a promise of his favour and assistance.
