Zechariah 3 (New Century Version)

View In My Bible
1 Then he showed me Joshua, the high priest, standing in front of the Lord's angel. And Satan was standing by Joshua's right side to accuse him. 2 The Lord said to Satan, "The Lord says no to you, Satan! The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem says no to you! This man was like a burning stick pulled from the fire." 3 Joshua was wearing dirty clothes and was standing in front of the angel. 4 The angel said to those standing in front of him, "Take off those dirty clothes." Then the angel said to Joshua, "Look, I have taken away your sin from you, and I am giving you beautiful, fine clothes." 5 Then I said, "Put a clean turban on his head." So they put a clean turban on his head and dressed him while the Lord's angel stood there. 6 Then the Lord's angel said to Joshua, 7 "This is what the Lord All-Powerful says: 'If you do as I tell you and serve me, you will be in charge of my Temple and my courtyards. And I will let you be with these angels who are standing here. 8 "'Listen, Joshua, the high priest, and your friends who are sitting in front of you. They are symbols of what will happen. I am going to bring my servant called the Branch. 9 Look, I put this stone in front of Joshua, a stone with seven sides. I will carve a message on it,' says the Lord All-Powerful. 'And in one day I will take away the sin of this land.' 10 "The Lord All-Powerful says, 'In that day, each of you will invite your neighbor to sit under your own grapevine and under your own fig tree.'"
