    Barnes' Notes on Zechariah 2:3

    The angel that talked with me went forth - Probably to receive the explanation which was given him for Zechariah; and another angel, a higher angel, since he gives him a commission, "went forth to meet him," being (it seems probable) instructed by the Angel of the Lord, who laid down the future dimensions of the city. The indefiniteness of the description, another angel, implies that he was neither the Angel of the Lord, nor (were they different) Michael, or the man with the measuring line, but an angel of intermediate rank, instructed by one higher, instructing the lower, who immediately instructed Zechariah.

    Wesley's Notes on Zechariah 2:3

    2:3 The angel - Christ, who had so long talked with Zechariah. Went forth - From the midst of the myrtle - trees.
