Then 1the angel who was speaking with me returned and 2roused me, as a manwho is awakened from his sleep.
He said to me, "3What do you see?" And I said, "I see, and behold, a 4lampstandall of gold with its bowl on the top of it, and its 5sevenlamps on it with sevenspouts belonging to each of the lampswhich are on the top of it;
also 6twoolivetrees by it, one on the rightside of the bowl and the other on its leftside."
Then I said to the angel who was speaking with me saying, "What are these, 7my lord?"
So 8the angel who was speaking with me answered and said to me, "9Do you not knowwhatthese are?" And I said, "No, my lord."
Then he asaid to me, "This is the word of the LORD to 10Zerubbabelsaying, '11Not by mightnor by power, but by My 12Spirit,' says the LORD of hosts.
7'What are you, O great13mountain? BeforeZerubbabel you will become a plain; and he will bringforth the topstone with 14shouts of "Grace, grace to it!""'
Also the word of the LORDcame to me, saying,
"The hands of Zerubbabel have 15laid the foundation of thishouse, and his hands will 16finish it. Then you will know that the LORD of hosts has sent me to byou.
"For who has despised the day of 17smallthings? cBut these18seven will be glad when they see the d19plumbline in the hand of Zerubbabel -these are the 20eyes of the LORDwhich21range to and frothroughout the earth."
Then I said to him, "What are these22twoolivetrees on the right of the lampstand and on its left?"
And I answered the secondtime and said to him, "What are the twooliveebrancheswhich are beside the twogoldenpipes, which empty the golden oil from themselves?"
So he answered me, saying, "23Do you not knowwhatthese are?" And I said, "No, 24my lord."
Then he said, "These are the twof25anointedones who are 26standing by the 27Lord of the wholeearth."
