Zechariah 4


The Lamp-stand and the Olive Trees

1And [6returned 1the 2angel 3speaking 4with 5me]; and he awakened me, in which manner whenever [2should be awakened 1a man] from out of his sleep. 2And he said to me, What do you see? And I said, I have seen, and behold, a lamp-stand [2of gold 1entirely], and the oil lamp bowl upon it, and seven lamps upon it, and seven oil funnels to the seven lamps upon it, 3and two olive trees upon it, one at the right of its oil lamp bowl, and one at the left. 4And I asked, and I said to the angel, the one speaking with me, saying, What are these, O lord? 5And [3answered 1the 2angel], the one speaking with me. And he said to me, Do you not know what these are? And I said, No, O lord.

Not by Power, but by My Spirit

6And he responded and said to me, saying, This is the word of the  lord to Zerubbabel, saying, Not by [2power 1great], nor by strength, but by my spirit, says the  lord almighty. 7Who are you [2mountain 1great] before the face of Zerubbabel to set up? And I will bring forth the stone of the inheritance [2equaling 3my favor 1of its favor]. 8And came to pass the word of the  lord to me, saying, 9The hands of Zerubbabel laid the foundation of this house, and his hands shall complete it; and you shall recognize that the  lord almighty has sent me to you. 10For who treated with contempt [2days 1small]? And they shall rejoice, and shall see the [2stone plummet 1tin] in the hand of Zerubbabel; these seven eyes of the  lord are the ones looking upon all the earth. 11And I responded and said to him, What are [2two 3olive trees 1these], the ones on the right side of the lamp-stand, and on the left? 12And I asked of a second time, and I said to him, What are the two branches of the olive trees, the ones by the handles of the two tubes of gold of the ones pouring and returning back the oil by funnels of gold? 13And he spoke to me, saying, Do you know not what these are? And I said, No, O lord. 14And he said, These are the two sons of fatness, they stand beside the  lord of all the earth.
