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."
