Zechariah 3

1And the Lord showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of the Lord, and the Devil stood on his right hand to resist him. 2And the Lord said to the Devil, (3:3) The Lord rebuke you, O Devil, even the Lord that has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you. Behold, is not this as a brand plucked from the fire? 3(3:4) Now Joshua was clothed in filthy garments, and stood before the Angel. 4(3:5) And the Lord answered and spoke to those who stood before Him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And He said to him, Behold, I have taken away your iniquities, and clothed you with a long robe, 5(3:6) and place a clean turban upon his head. So they placed a clean turban upon his head, and clothed him with garments. And the Angel of the Lord stood by. 6(3:7) And the Angel of the Lord testified to Joshua, saying, 7(3:8) Thus says the Lord Almighty; If you will walk in My ways, and take heed to My charges, then shall you judge My house: and if you will diligently keep My court, then will I give you men to walk in the midst of these that stand here. 8(3:9) Hear now, Joshua the high priest, you and your neighbors that are sitting before you-for they are diviners; for behold, I bring forth My servant the Branch. 9(3:10) For as for the stone which I have set before the face of Joshua, on the one stone are seven eyes: behold, I am digging a trench, says the Lord Almighty, and I will search out all the iniquity of that land in one day. 10(3:11) In that day, says the Lord Almighty, you shall call together every man his neighbor under the vine and under the fig tree.
