Zechariah 6:1-10 (The Message)

View In My Bible
1 Once again I looked up - another strange sight! Four chariots charging out from between two mountains. The mountains were bronze. 2 The first chariot was drawn by red horses, the second chariot by black horses, 3 the third chariot by white horses, and the fourth chariot by dappled horses. All the horses were powerful. 4 I asked the Messenger-Angel, "Sir, what's the meaning here?" 5 The angel answered, "These are the four winds of heaven, which originate with the Master of the whole earth. 6 The black horses are headed north with the white ones right after them. The dappled horses are headed south." 7 The powerful horses galloped out, bursting with energy, eager to patrol through the earth. The Messenger-Angel commanded: "On your way! Survey the earth!" and they were off in every direction. 8 Then he called to me and said, "Look at them go! The ones going north are conveying a sense of my Spirit, serene and secure. No more trouble from that direction." 9 Then this Message from God came to me: 10 "Take up a collection from the exiles. Target Heldai, Tobiah, and Jedaiah. They've just arrived from Babylon. You'll find them at the home of Josiah son of Zephaniah.
