Zechariah 3

Joshua, the High Priest

1Then he showed me a  Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the  Lord, and
Or the Adversary or Accuser
c  Satan standing at his right hand to accuse him.
2The  Lord said to Satan, d  “The  Lord rebuke you, Satan! Indeed, the  Lord who has e  chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! Is this not a f  brand plucked from the fire?” 3Now Joshua was clothed with g  filthy garments and standing before the angel. 4He spoke and said to those who were standing before him, saying h  Remove the filthy garments from him.” Again he said to him, “See, I have i  taken your iniquity away from you and
Lit to clothe
will k  clothe you with festal robes.”
5Then I said, “Let them put a clean l  turban on his head.” So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him with garments, while the angel of the  Lord was standing by.

6And the angel of the  Lord admonished Joshua, saying, 7Thus says the  Lord of hosts, ‘If you will m  walk in My ways and if you will perform My service, then you will also n  govern My house and also have charge of My o  courts, and I will grant you
Lit goings
free access among these who are standing here.

The Branch

8Now listen, Joshua the high priest, you and your friends who are sitting in front of you— indeed they are men who are a q  symbol, for behold, I am going to bring in My servant the
Lit Sprout
s  Branch.
9For behold, the stone that I have set before Joshua; on one stone are t  seven eyes. Behold, I will engrave an inscription on it,’ declares the  Lord of hosts, ‘and I will u  remove the iniquity of that land in one day. 10In that day,’ declares the  Lord of hosts, ‘every one of you will invite his neighbor to sit under his v  vine and under his fig tree.’”
