I have wondered how anyone could fail to see this passage as being Messianic, but my understanding is that many Jewish people do not, while some do.

Thanks for posting that, TN Dove. So is there an intent on Jewish religious leaders to omit these readings? Or is it the Lord keeping a veil over them, preventing them from seeing, since they once rejected Messiah?
There is another one that the Rabbis and the Jewish people have deliberately omitted.
Zechariah 12:10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
The piercing took place on passover 32 A.D.And they can't deny it because that event has been written and documented in history books beside bible.
2nd Coming... yes, another powerful and undeniable passage there.
2nd Coming, I love Zechariah 12:10
How about this one? The word translated as "fellow" is "ameeth" and means "equal," or "having the same nature." What man is God's equal, other than the Messiah?
Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones. Zechariah 13:7
That verse is still waiting for it's fulfillment.It shall be fulfilled toward the end of the tribulation when the whole house of Israel cry out to our Lord whom they have pierced almost two thousand years ago.
I checked some of the commentaries to confirm it. It is subtle, but the word is variously translated and the passage receives very little notice as being Messianic. Still, the word for "fellow" means "having the same nature," which is striking. The verse was fulfilled when the disciples were scattered after Jesus was arrested.
You can research it later, when you have the chance. See if you agree...
Jesus said it applied to Himself, also.
Then Jesus told them, "This very night you will all fall away on account of me, for it is written: "'I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.' Matthew 26:31
The word "my fellow" in Zechariah 13 verse 7 is translated to "neighbor" according to Strong Concordance.
My belief is when Jesus referred himself being the shepherd smitten,he was referring to Isaiah 53 verse 4.
Isaiah 53:4 Surely he hath borne our griefs,and carried our sorrows:yet we did esteem him stricken,smitten of God,and afflicted.
Zechariah 13 is still waiting for it's fulfillment.It shall be fulfilled during the second half of the tribulation.
