The Oxford Bible Commentary Line-by-line commentary for the New Revised Standard Version Bible.

Zechariah - Introduction

The oldest complete MS is a second-century leather scroll of the Minor Prophets from Wadi Murabba῾at in the the Judean desert (DJD 2). Fragments of seven older Hebrew MSS of the Minor Prophets were found at Qumran in cave 4, but only three are sufficiently well preserved to offer meaningful comparison with the Masoretic Text (OCB S.V.), and no significant variants emerge. A Greek translation (‘Translations, Ancient Languages’, OCB) of the second century CE found at Nahal Hever confirms the above picture. However, Zechariah is a cryptic book, and the fact that the MS tradition is reliable and textual problems are few does not mean that it is always easy to translate.
