Then the angel who had been talking with me returned and woke me, as though I had been asleep.
"What do you see now?" he asked.I answered, "I see a solid gold lampstand with a bowl of oil on top of it. Around the bowl are seven lamps, each one having seven spouts with wicks.
And I see two olive trees, one on each side of the bowl."
Then I asked the angel, "What are these, my lord? What do they mean?"
"Don't you know?" the angel asked."No, my lord," I replied.
Then he said to me, "This is what the LORD says to Zerubbabel: It is not by force nor by strength, but by my Spirit, says the LORD Almighty.
