Now Joshua was dressed in filthy clothes as he stood before the angel.
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,1 and I will put rich garments2 on you."
Then I said, "Put a clean turban3 on his head." So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him, while the angel of the LORD stood by.
The angel of the LORD gave this charge to Joshua:
"This is what the LORD Almighty says: 'If you will walk in my ways and keep my requirements,4 then you will govern my house5 and have charge6 of my courts, and I will give you a place among these standing here.78
" 'Listen, O high priest8 Joshua and your associates seated before you, who are men symbolic9 of things to come: I am going to bring my servant, the Branch.109
See, the stone I have set in front of Joshua!11 There are seven eyesa12 on that one stone,13 and I will engrave an inscription on it,' says the LORD Almighty, 'and I will remove the sin14 of this land in a single day.
" 'In that day each of you will invite his neighbor to sit15 under his vine and fig tree,16' declares the LORD Almighty."
