The angel who talked with me came again, and wakened me, as a man who is wakened out of his sleep.
He said to me, "What do you see?" I said, "I have seen, and, behold, a menorah all of gold, with its bowl on the top of it, and its seven lamps thereon; there are seven pipes to each of the lamps, which are on the top of it;
and two olive trees by it, one on the right side of the bowl, and the other on the left side of it."
I answered and spoke to the angel who talked with me, saying, "What are these, my lord?"
Then the angel who talked with me answered me, "Don't you know what these are?" I said, "No, my lord."
Then he answered and spoke to me, saying, "This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbavel, saying, 'Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit,' says the LORD of Hosts.
Who are you, great mountain? before Zerubbavel [you are a plain; and he will bring out the capstone with shouts of 'Grace, grace, to it!'"
Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
"The hands of Zerubbavel have laid the foundation of this house. His hands shall also finish it; and you will know that the LORD of Hosts has sent me to you.
