Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Then the LORD showed me the High Priest Joshua, standing before the messenger from the LORD, and the Adversary was standing by his right side to accuse him. 1 Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right side to accuse him.
2 And the LORD said to the Adversary: "The LORD rebukes you, Adversary. The LORD, the one choosing Jerusalem, rebukes you. Is this one not a log snatched from the fire?" 2 The LORD said to Satan, "The LORD rebuke you, Satan! The LORD, who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you! Is not this man a burning stick snatched from the fire?"
3 Joshua was wearing filthy clothes and standing before the messenger. 3 Now Joshua was dressed in filthy clothes as he stood before the angel.
4 He responded to those standing before him, "Take off his filthy clothes." And he said to Joshua, "Look, I have removed your guilt from you. Put on priestly robes." 4 The angel said to those who were standing before him, "Take off his filthy clothes." Then he said to Joshua, "See, I have taken away your sin, and I will put rich garments on you."
5 He said, "Put a clean turban upon his head." So they put the clean turban upon his head, and they dressed him in garments while the LORD's messenger stood by. 5 Then I said, "Put a clean turban on his head." So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him, while the angel of the LORD stood by.
6 Then the LORD's messenger admonished Joshua: 6 The angel of the LORD gave this charge to Joshua:
7 "The LORD of heavenly forces proclaims: If you will walk in my paths, if you will keep my charge, then you will lead my house and guard my courts, and I will allow you to walk among those standing here. 7 "This is what the LORD Almighty says: 'If you will walk in my ways and keep my requirements, then you will govern my house and have charge of my courts, and I will give you a place among these standing here.
8 Now listen, High Priest Joshua, you and your companions sitting before you— for these men are a sign— look, I am about to bring my servant, Branch. 8 " 'Listen, O high priest Joshua and your associates seated before you, who are men symbolic of things to come: I am going to bring my servant, the Branch.
9 See this stone that I have put before Joshua. Upon one stone, there are seven facets. I am about to engrave an inscription on it, says the LORD of heavenly forces. I will remove the guilt of that land in one day. 9 See, the stone I have set in front of Joshua! There are seven eyes on that one stone, and I will engrave an inscription on it,' says the LORD Almighty, 'and I will remove the sin of this land in a single day.
10 On that day, says the LORD of heavenly forces, everyone will invite their neighbors to sit beneath their vines and the fig trees." 10 " 'In that day each of you will invite his neighbor to sit under his vine and fig tree,' declares the LORD Almighty."
