The Four Chariots

1 Now I lifted up my eyes again and looked, and behold, 1four chariots were coming forth from between the two mountains; and the mountains were bronze mountains. 2 With the first chariot were 2red horses, with the second chariot 3black horses, 3 with the third chariot 4white horses, and with the fourth chariot strong 5dappled horses. 4 Then I spoke and said to the angel who was speaking with me, "6What are these, my lord?" 5 The angel replied to me, "These are the 7four spirits of heaven, going forth after standing before the Lord of all the earth, 6 with one of which the black horses are going forth to the 8north country; and the white ones go forth after them, while the dappled ones go forth to the 9south country. 7 "When the strong ones went out, they awere eager to go to b10patrol the earth." And He said, "Go, cpatrol the earth." So they dpatrolled the earth. 8 Then He cried out to me and spoke to me saying, "See, those who are going to the land of the north have e11appeased My wrath in the land of the north." 9 The 12word of the LORD also came to me, saying, 10 "13Take an offering from the exiles, from Heldai, Tobijah and Jedaiah; and you go the same day and enter the house of Josiah the son of Zephaniah, where they have arrived from Babylon.

The Symbolic Crowns

11 "Take silver and gold, make an ornate 14crown and set it on the head of 15Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest. 12 "Then say to him, 'Thus says the LORD of hosts, "Behold, a man whose name is f16Branch, for He will g17branch out from where He is; and He will 18build the temple of the LORD. 13 "Yes, it is He who will build the temple of the LORD, and He who will 19bear the honor and sit and 20rule on His throne. Thus, He will be a 21priest on His throne, and the counsel of peace will be between the two hoffices."' 14 "Now the 22crown will become a reminder in the temple of the LORD to Helem, Tobijah, Jedaiah and iHen the son of Zephaniah. 15 "23Those who are far off will come and jbuild the temple of the LORD." Then you will 24know that the LORD of hosts has sent me to you. And it will take place if you completely 25obey the LORD your God.
