How does Scripture portray the ideal ruler? Zechariah speaks of a king that although triumphant and victorious is humble. The New Interpreters' Study Bible notes that "victorious" could be translated as "saved." I'm considering what it means to combine these two conditions: triumphant and saved.
As a sideline to this passage, read earlier in Zechariah for the list of sins that Israel has committed: oppressing widows, orphans, aliens, and the poor (7:9-14).
