Zechariah 3

The Vision of Joshua the High Priest

Then [the angel] showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of the LORD, with Satan
That is, the Accuser or the Adversary; also in verse 2
standing at his right hand to accuse him.
And the LORD said to Satan: “The LORD rebukes you, Satan! Indeed, the LORD, who has chosen Jerusalem, rebukes you! Is not this man a firebrand
That is, a burning stick
snatched from the fire?”
Now Joshua was dressed in filthy garments as he stood before the Angel. So [the Angel of the LORD] said to those standing before Him, “Take off his filthy clothes!” Then He said to [Joshua] , “See, I have removed your iniquity, and I will clothe you with splendid robes.” Then I said, “Let them put a clean turban on his head.” So a clean turban was placed on his head, and they clothed him, as the Angel of the LORD stood by. Then the Angel of the LORD gave this charge to Joshua: “This is what the LORD of Hosts says: ‘If you walk in My ways and keep My instructions, then you will both govern My house and have charge of My courts; and I will give you a place among these standing here.’ ‘Hear now, O high priest Joshua, you and your companions seated before you, who are indeed a sign. For behold, I am going to bring My servant, the Branch. See the stone I have set before Joshua; on that one stone are seven eyes.
Or facets
Behold, I will engrave on it an inscription,’ declares the LORD of Hosts, ‘and I will remove the iniquity of this land in a single day.
10  On that day,’ declares the LORD of Hosts, ‘each of you will invite his neighbor to sit under his vine and under his fig tree.’”
