A Vision of a Golden Lampstand1 And a the angel who talked with me came again b and woke me, like a man who is awakened out of his sleep. 2 And he said to me, “What do you see?” I said, “I see, and behold, c a lampstand all of gold, with a bowl on the top of it, and d seven lamps on it, with seven lips on each of the lamps that are on the top of it. 3 And there are e two olive trees by it, one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left.” 4 And I said to f the angel who talked with me, “What are these, my lord?” 5 Then the angel who talked with me answered and said to me, g “Do you not know what these are?” I said, “No, my lord.” 6 Then he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to h Zerubbabel: i Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of hosts. 7 Who are you j O great mountain? Before k Zerubbabel l you shall become a plain. And he shall bring forward m the top stone amid shouts of ‘Grace, grace to it!’” 8 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 9 n “The hands of o Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also p complete it. q Then you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent me to you. 10 r For whoever has despised the day of small things shall rejoice, and shall see s the plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel. t “These seven u are the eyes of the Lord v which range through the whole earth.” 11 Then I said to him, “What are these w two olive trees on the right and the left of the lampstand?” 12 And a second time I answered and said to him, “What are these x two branches of the olive trees, which are beside the two golden pipes from which the golden oil ▼
▼ Hebrew lacks oilis poured out?” 13 He said to me, z “Do you not know what these are?” I said, “No, my lord.” 14 Then he said, aa “These are the two anointed ones ▼
▼ Hebrew two sons of new oilwho stand by ac the Lord of the whole earth.”
