He said to me, "1What do you see ?" And I said, "I see, and behold, a 2lampstandall of gold with its bowl on the top of it, and its 3sevenlamps on it with sevenspouts belonging to each of the lampswhich are on the top of it;
also 4twoolivetrees 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, 5my lord ?"
So 6the angel who was speaking with me answered and said to me, "7Do you not knowwhatthese are?" And I said, "No, my lord."
Then he asaid to me, "This is the word of the LORD to 8Zerubbabelsaying, '9Not by mightnor by power, but by My 10Spirit,' says the LORD of hosts.
7'What are you, O great11mountain ? BeforeZerubbabel you will become a plain ; and he will bringforth the topstone with 12shouts of "Grace, grace to it!""'
Also the word of the LORDcame to me, saying,
"The hands of Zerubbabel have 13laid the foundation of thishouse, and his hands will 14finish it. Then you will know that the LORD of hosts has sent me to byou.
"For who has despised the day of 15smallthings ? cBut these16seven will be glad when they see the d17plumbline in the hand of Zerubbabel -these are the 18eyes of the LORDwhich19range to and frothroughout the earth."
Then I said to him, "What are these20twoolivetrees 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?"
