John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Zechariah 8:14

For thus saith the Lord of hosts
In order to assure them of the truth of what he promised, he observes the fulfilment of what he had threatened, he being as true and faithful in the one as in the other: As I thought to punish you:
determined to do it, by suffering them to be carried captive: when your fathers provoked me to wrath, saith the Lord of hosts;
by their immorality, idolatry, and contempt of his prophets: and I repented not;
the Targum adds, "of my word"; of the resolution he had taken up in his heart, and of the declaration of it by his prophets, that he would punish them; this he did not repent of, revoke, change, and alter, but steadily abode by it, and executed it.
