Zechariah - 4


1The angel who was talking to me came back and roused me as though rousing someone who wasasleep. 2And he asked me, 'What do you see?' I replied, 'As I look, there is a lamp-stand entirely of gold with abowl at the top of it; it holds seven lamps, with seven openings for the lamps on it. 3By it are two olive trees, one to the right and the other to the left.' 4I then said to the angel who was talking to me, 'What are those things, my lord?' 5The angel who was talking to me replied, 'Do you not know what they are?' I said, 'No, my lord.' 6He then gave me this answer,'These seven are the eyes of Yahweh, which range over the whole world.' 7'What are you, great mountain? Beside Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! He wil bring out thekeystone while it is cheered with Hurrah! Hurrah!' 8The word of Yahweh was addressed to me as follows, 9'The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this Temple; his hands wil finish it. (Then you wilknow that Yahweh Sabaoth has sent me to you.) 10A day of little things, no doubt, but who would dare despise it? How they wil rejoice when they see thechosen stone in the hands of Zerubbabel!' 11Then I went on to ask him, 'What is the meaning of these two olive trees, to right and left of the lamp-stand?' 12(And I went on to ask him further, 'What is the meaning of the two olive branches discharging oilthrough the two golden openings?') 13He replied, 'Do you not know what they are?' I said, 'No, my lord.' 14He said, 'These are the two anointed ones in attendance on the Lord of the whole world. This is theword of Yahweh with regard to Zerubbabel, 'Not by might and not by power, but by my spirit' -- says YahwehSabaoth.
