And the angel that talked with me came again, and woke me, as a man that is awakened out of his sleep. 2 And he said to me, What do you see? And I said, I have seen, and, behold, a candlestick all of gold, with its bowl upon the top of it, and its seven lamps on it; there are seven pipes to each of the lamps, which are upon the top of it; 3 and two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side of it. 4 And I answered and spoke to the angel that talked with me, saying, What are these, My kind sir? 5 Then the angel that talked with me answered and said to me, Know you not what these are? And I said, No, my master. 6 Then he answered and spoke to me, saying, This is the word of Yahweh to Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says Yahweh of hosts. 7 Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain; and he shall bring forth the top stone with shoutings of Grace, grace, to it. 8 Moreover the word of Yahweh came to me, saying, 9 the hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and you shall know that Yahweh of hosts has sent me to you. 10 For who has despised the day of small things? For these seven shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel; these are the eyes of Yahweh, which run to and fro through the whole earth.
11 Then I answered, and said to him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side of it? 12 And I answered the second time, and said to him, What are these two olive branches, which are beside the two golden spouts, that empty the golden oil out of themselves? 13 And he answered me and said, Know you not what these are? And I said, No, My master. 14 Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by Yahweh of the whole earth.
Then again I lifted up my eyes, and saw, and, behold, a flying roll. 2 And he said to me, What do you see? And I answered, I see a flying roll; the length of it is twenty cubits, and the width of it ten cubits. 3 Then said he to me, This is the curse that goes forth over the face of the whole land: for every one that steals shall be cut off on the one side according to it; and every one that swears shall be cut off on the other side according to it. 4 I will cause it to go forth, says Yahweh of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that swears falsely by my name; and it shall remain in the middle of his house, and shall consume it with the timber of it and the stones of it.
5 Then the angel that talked with me went forth, and said to me, Lift up now your eyes, and see what is this that goes forth. 6 And I said, What is it? And he said, This is the ephah that goes forth. He said moreover, This is their appearance in all the land; 7 (and, behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead;) and this is a woman sitting in the middle of the ephah. 8 And he said, This is Wickedness: and he cast her down into the middle of the ephah; and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth of ft. 9 Then I lifted up my eyes, and saw, and, behold, there came forth two women, and the wind was in their wings; now they had wings like the wings of a stork; and they lifted up the ephah between earth and heaven. 10 Then I said to the angel that talked with me, To where do these bear the ephah? 11 And he said to me, To build her a house in the land of Shinar: and when it is prepared, she shall be set there in her own place.
And again I lifted up my eyes, and saw, and, behold, there came four chariots out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of bronze. 2 In the first chariot were red horses; and in the second chariot black horses; 3 And in the third chariot white horses; and in the fourth chariot grizzled strong horses. 4 Then I answered and said to the angel that talked with me, What are these, sir? 5 And the angel answered and said to me, These are the four winds of heaven, which go forth from standing before Yahweh of all the earth. 6 The chariot in which are the black horses goes forth toward the north country; and the white went forth after them; and the grizzled went forth toward the south country., 7 And the strong went forth, and sought to go that they might walk to and fro through the earth: and he said, Go, walk to and fro through the earth. So they walked to and fro through the earth. 8 Then he cried to me, and spoke to me, saying, Behold, they that go toward the north country have quieted my spirit in the north country.
9 And the word of Yahweh came to me, saying, 10 Take of them of the captivity, even of Heldai, of Tobijah, and of Jedaiah; and you come the same day, and go into the house of Josiah the son of Zephaniah, where they are come from Babylon; 11 yes, take of them silver and gold, and make crowns, and set them upon the head of Yahshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest; 12 and speak to him, saying, In this manner speaks Yahweh of hosts, saying, Behold, the man whose name is the Branch: and he shall grow up out of his place; and he shall build the temple of Yahweh; 13 even he shall build the temple of Yahweh; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne; and the counsel of peace shall be between them both. 14 And the crowns shall be to Helem, and to Tobijah, and to Jedaiah, and to Hen the son of Zephaniah, for a memorial in the temple of Yahweh. 15 And they that are far off shall come and build in the temple of Yahweh; and you shall know that Yahweh of hosts has sent me unto you. And this shall come to pass, if you will diligently obey the voice of Yahweh your Elohim.
