World English Bible (WEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 The angel who talked with me came again, and wakened me, as a man who is wakened out of his sleep. 1 Then the angel who talked with me returned and wakened me, as a man is wakened from his sleep.
2 He said to me, "What do you see?" I said, "I have seen, and, behold, a lampstand all of gold, with its bowl on the top of it, and its seven lamps thereon; there are seven pipes to each of the lamps, which are on the top of it; 2 He asked me, "What do you see?" I answered, "I see a solid gold lampstand with a bowl at the top and seven lights on it, with seven channels to the lights.
3 and two olive trees by it, one on the right side of the bowl, and the other on the left side of it." 3 Also there are two olive trees by it, one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left."
4 I answered and spoke to the angel who talked with me, saying, "What are these, my lord?" 4 I asked the angel who talked with me, "What are these, my lord?"
5 Then the angel who talked with me answered me, "Don't you know what these are?" I said, "No, my lord." 5 He answered, "Do you not know what these are?" "No, my lord," I replied.
6 Then he answered and spoke to me, saying, "This is the word of Yahweh to Zerubbabel, saying, 'Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit,' says Yahweh of Hosts. 6 So he said to me, "This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: 'Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,' says the LORD Almighty.
7 Who are you, great mountain? before Zerubbabel [you are a plain; and he will bring out the capstone with shouts of 'Grace, grace, to it!'" 7 "What are you, O mighty mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become level ground. Then he will bring out the capstone to shouts of 'God bless it! God bless it!' "
8 Moreover the word of Yahweh came to me, saying, 8 Then the word of the LORD came to me:
9 "The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house. His hands shall also finish it; and you will know that Yahweh of Hosts has sent me to you. 9 "The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this temple; his hands will also complete it. Then you will know that the LORD Almighty has sent me to you.
10 Indeed, who despises the day of small things? For these seven shall rejoice, and shall see the plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel. These are the eyes of Yahweh, which run back and forth through the whole earth." 10 "Who despises the day of small things? Men will rejoice when they see the plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel. "(These seven are the eyes of the LORD, which range throughout the earth.)"
11 Then I asked him, "What are these two olive trees on the right side of the lampstand and on the left side of it?" 11 Then I asked the angel, "What are these two olive trees on the right and the left of the lampstand?"
12 I asked him the second time, "What are these two olive-branches, which are beside the two golden spouts, that pour the golden oil out of themselves?" 12 Again I asked him, "What are these two olive branches beside the two gold pipes that pour out golden oil?"
13 He answered me, "Don't you know what these are?" I said, "No, my lord." 13 He replied, "Do you not know what these are?" "No, my lord," I said.
14 Then he said, "These are the two anointed ones who stand by the Lord of the whole earth." 14 So he said, "These are the two who are anointed to serve the Lord of all the earth."
