ZEKARYAH (Zechariah) 2:14 - 4:7

13  "Hush, all flesh, before יהוה, for He has roused Himself out of His qodesh dwelling!"

 Zechariah 3

1  And he showed me Yahoshua the kohen ha'gadol standing before the messenger of יהוה, and ha'Satan standing at his right hand to be an adversary to him.

2  And יהוה said to ha'Satan, "יהוה rebuke you, ha'Satan! יהוה who has chosen Yerushalayim rebuke you! Is this not a brand plucked from the fire?"

3  And Yahoshua was dressed in filthy garments, and was standing before the messenger.

4  And He answered and spoke to those who stood before Him, saying, "Remove the filthy garments from him." And to him He said, "See, I have removed your guilt from you, and shall put costly robes on you."

5  And I said, "Let them put a clean turban on his head." Then they put a clean turban on his head, and they put garments on him. And the messenger of יהוה stood by.

6  And the messenger of יהוה witnessed to Yahoshua, saying,

7  "Thus said יהוה of hosts, ‘If you walk in My ways, and if you guard My duty, then you shall also rule My house, and also guard My courts. And I shall give you access among these standing here.

8  ‘Now listen, Yahoshua the kohen ha'gadol, you and your companions who sit before you, for they are men of symbol. For look, I am bringing forth My Servant - the Branch. 

9  ‘See the stone which I have put before Yahoshua: on one stone are seven eyes. See, I am engraving its inscription,' declares יהוה of hosts, ‘and I shall remove the guilt of that land in one day.

10  ‘In that day,' declares יהוה of hosts, ‘you shall invite one another, under the vine and under the fig tree.' "

Zechariah 4

1  And the messenger who was speaking to me came back and woke me up as a man is awakened from sleep.

2  And he said to me, "What do you see?" So I said, "I have looked, and see: a lampstand all of gold with a bowl on top of it, and on the stand seven lamps with seven spouts to the seven lamps.

3  "And two olive trees are by it, one at the right of the bowl and the other at its left."

4  Then I responded and spoke to the messenger who was speaking to me, saying, "What are these, my master?"

5  And the messenger who was speaking to me answered and said to me, "Do you not know what these are?" And I said, "No, my master."

6  And he answered and said to me, "This is the word of יהוה to Zerubbaḇel, ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Ruaḥ,' said יהוה of hosts.

7  ‘Who are you, great mountain, before Zerubbaḇel? A plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone with shouts of "Favour, favour to it!" ' "
