Zechariah 4:1-9 (Good News Translation)

View In My Bible
1 The angel who had been speaking to me came again and roused me as if I had been sleeping. 2 "What do you see?" he asked. "A lampstand made of gold," I answered. "At the top is a bowl for the oil. On the lampstand are seven lamps, each one with places for seven wicks. 3 There are two olive trees beside the lampstand, one on each side of it." 1 4 Then I asked the angel, "What do these things stand for, sir?" 5 "Don't you know?" he asked me. "No, I don't, sir," I replied. 6 The angel told me to give Zerubbabel this message from the Lord: "You will succeed, not by military might or by your own strength, but by my spirit. 7 Obstacles as great as mountains will disappear before you. You will rebuild the Temple, and as you put the last stone in place, the people will shout, "Beautiful, beautiful!' " 8 Another message came to me from the Lord. 9 He said, "Zerubbabel has laid the foundation of the Temple, and he will finish the building. When this happens, my people will know that it is I who sent you to them.
