Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 And the angel that spoke in me came again: and he waked me, as a man that 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 And he said to me: What seest thou? And I said: I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, and its lamp upon the top of it: and the seven lights thereof upon it: and seven funnels for the lights that were upon the top thereof. 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 over it: one upon the right side of the lamp, and the other upon the left side thereof. 3 Also there are two olive trees by it, one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left."
4 And I answered, and said to the angel that spoke in me, saying: What are these things, my lord? 4 I asked the angel who talked with me, "What are these, my lord?"
5 And the angel that spoke in me answered, and said to me: Knowest thou not what these things are? And I said: No, my lord. 5 He answered, "Do you not know what these are?" "No, my lord," I replied.
6 And he answered, and spoke to me, saying: This is the word of the Lord to Zorobabel, saying: Not with an army, nor by might, but by my spirit, saith the Lord 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 art thou, O great mountain, before Zorobabel? thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring out the chief stone, and shall give equal grace to the grace thereof. 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 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying: 8 Then the word of the LORD came to me:
9 The hands of Zorobabel have laid the foundations of this house, and his hands shall finish it: and you shall know that the Lord of hosts hath 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.
