The messenger speaking with me returned and woke me like one who awakens someone who is asleep.
Then he said to me, "What do you see?" I said, "I see a lampstand made entirely of gold. It has a bowl on top. The bowl has seven lamps on top and seven metal pipes for those lamps.
It has two olive trees beside the lampstand, one to the right of its bowl and one to the left."
I responded to the messenger speaking with me, "What are these, sir?"
The messenger responded to me: "Don't you know what these are?" I said, "No, sir. I don't."
He answered me: "This is the LORD's word to Zerubbabel: Neither by power, nor by strength, but by my spirit, says the LORD of heavenly forces."
Who are you, great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain. He will present the capstone to shouts of great gratitude.
The LORD's word came to me:
The hands of Zerubbabel laid the foundation of this house, and his hands will finish it so that you will know that the LORD of heavenly forces has sent me to you.
