Zechariah’s Fifth Vision

1 And the angel [who was] talking with me returned, and he wakened me as one who is wakened from his sleep. 2 And he said to me, "What do you see?" And I said, "I see, and look, {a lampstand all of gold},a and a bowl [was] on its top, and its seven lamps on it, and seven lips on [each of] the lamps that [are] on its top. 3 And [there are] two olive trees by it, one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left." 4 And I answered and said to the angel [who was] talking to me, "What [are] these, my lord?" 5 And the angel [who was] talking with me answered and said to me, "Do you not know what these [are]?" And I said, "No, my lord." 6 And he answered and said to me, "This [is] the word of Yahweh to Zerubbabel, saying, 'Not by strength and not by power, but [only] by my Spirit,' says Yahweh of hosts. 7 'Who [are] you O great mountain? {Before}b Zerubbabel [you will become] level ground, and he will bring out the top stone amid the shouts of "Grace, grace to it!" '" 8 And the word of Yahweh came to me, saying, 9 "The hands of Zerubbabel have founded this house, and his hands will finish it. And you will know that Yahweh of hosts has sent me to you. 10 For whoever has despised the day of small [things] will rejoice and will see the {plumb line}c in the hand of Zerubbabel." These seven [are] the eyes of Yahweh which [are] ranging {throughout the whole earth}. 11 And I answered and said to him, "What [are] these two olive trees on the right of the lampstand and on its left?" 12 And I replied a second [time] and asked him, "What [are] these two twigs of olive treesd on the right of the lampstand and on its left?" 13 And he replied to me, "Do you not know what these [are]?" And I said, "No, my lord." 14 And he said, "These [are] the two {anointed ones}e standing by the Lord of the whole earth."
