The Golden Lampstand and Olive Trees1 Then a the angel who was speaking with me returned and b roused me, as a man who is awakened from his sleep. 2 He said to me, c “What do you see?” And I said, “I see, and behold, a d lampstand all of gold with its bowl on the top of it, and its e seven lamps on it with seven spouts belonging to each of the lamps which are on the top of it; 3 also f two olive trees by it, one on the right side of the bowl and the other on its left side.” 4 Then I said to the angel who was speaking with me saying, “What are these g my lord?” 5 So h the angel who was speaking with me answered and said to me, i “Do you not know what these are?” And I said, “No, my lord.” 6 Then he ▼
▼ Lit said to me, sayingsaid to me, “This is the word of the Lord to k Zerubbabel saying, ‘ l Not by might nor by power, but by My m Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts. 7 ‘What are you, O great n mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain; and he will bring forth the top stone with o shouts of “Grace, grace to it!”’” 8 Also the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 9 “The hands of Zerubbabel have p laid the foundation of this house, and his hands will q finish it. Then you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent me to ▼
▼ Lit you (plural)you. 10 “For who has despised the day of s small things? ▼
▼ Or But they will rejoice when they see...Zerubbabel. These seven are the eyes of the LordBut these u seven will be glad when they see the ▼
▼ Lit plummet stone, w plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel— these are the x eyes of the Lord which y range to and fro throughout the earth.” 11 Then I said to him, “What are these z two olive trees on the right of the lampstand and on its left?” 12 And I answered the second time and said to him, “What are the two olive ▼
▼ Or clustersbranches which are beside the two golden pipes, which empty the golden oil from themselves?” 13 So he answered me, saying ab “Do you not know what these are?” And I said, “No ac my lord.” 14 Then he said, “These are the two ▼
