Tell him this is what the LORD Almighty says: 'Here is the man whose name is the Branch,1 and he will branch out from his place and build the temple of the LORD.213
It is he who will build the temple of the LORD, and he will be clothed with majesty and will sit and rule on his throne. And he will be a priest3 on his throne. And there will be harmony between the two.'
The crown will be given to Heldai,a Tobijah, Jedaiah and Henb son of Zephaniah as a memorial4 in the temple of the LORD.
Those who are far away will come and help to build the temple of the LORD,5 and you will know that the LORD Almighty has sent me to you.6 This will happen if you diligently obey7 the LORD your God."
