Zechariah 3

Fourth Vision: High Priest and Branch

1 Then he showed me Joshuaa the high priest standing before the Angel of the Lord, with Satanb standing at his right side to accuse him.c
2 The Lord d said to Satan: "The Lord rebuke you, Satan! May the Lord who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! Isn't this man a burning stick snatched from the fire?"e
3 Now Joshua was dressed with filthyf clothes as he stood before the Angel.g
4 So Heh spoke to thosei standing before Him, "Take off his filthy clothes!"j Then He said to him, "See, I have removed your guilt from you,k and I will clothe you with splendid robes."
5 Then I said, "Let them put a clean turban on his head." So a clean turban was placed on his head, and they clothed him in garments while the Angel of the Lord was standing nearby.
6 Then the Angel of the Lord charged Joshua:
7 "This is what the Lord of Hosts says: If you walk in My ways and keep My instructions, you will both rule My house and take care of My courts; I will also grant you access among these who are standing here.
8 "Listen, Joshua the high priest, you and your colleagues sitting before you; indeed, these men are a sign that I am about to bring My servant, the Branch.l
9 Notice the stonem I have set before Joshua; on [that] one stone are seven eyes.n I will engrave an inscription on it"-the declaration of the Lord of Hosts-"and I will take away the guilt of this land in a single day.
10 On that day, each of you will invite his neighbor to [sit] under [his] vine and fig tree."o [This is] the declaration of the Lord of Hosts.
