And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of Jehovah, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him. a2
And Jehovah said unto Satan, Jehovah rebuke thee, O Satan! Yea, Jehovah that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee! Is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?
And Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the Angel.
And he spoke and said unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from off him. And unto him he said, See, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I clothe thee with festival-robes.
And I said, Let them set a pure turban upon his head. And they set the pure turban b upon his head, and clothed him with garments; and the Angel of Jehovah stood by.
And the Angel of Jehovah protested unto Joshua, saying,
Thus saith Jehovah of hosts: If thou wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my charge, then thou shalt also judge my house, and shalt also keep my courts; and I will give thee a place to walk c among these that stand by.
Hear now, Joshua the high priest, thou and thy fellows that sit before thee -- for they are men of portent d -- for behold, I will bring forth my servant the Branch. e9
For behold, the stone that I have laid before Joshua -- upon one stone are seven eyes; behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith Jehovah of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of this land in one day.
In that day, saith Jehovah of hosts, shall ye invite every man his neighbour under the vine and under the fig-tree.
