"Take from the exiles 16Heldai, Tobijah, and 17Jedaiah, who have arrived from Babylon, and go the same day to the house of Josiah, the son of 18Zephaniah.
Take from them silver and gold, and make a crown, 19and set it on the head of 20Joshua, the son of Jehozadak, the high priest.
And say to him, 'Thus says the LORD of hosts, "Behold, the man whose name is 21the Branch: for he shall branch out from his place, and 22he shall build the temple of the LORD.
1323It is he who shall build the temple of the LORD 24and shall bear royal honor, and shall sit and rule on his throne. And there shall be a 25priest on his throne, 26and the counsel of peace shall be between them both."'
And the crown shall be in the temple of the LORD as 27a reminder to 28Helem,b29Tobijah, 30Jedaiah, and Hen 31the son of Zephaniah.
1532"And those who are far off shall come and 33help to build the temple of the LORD. 34And you shall know that the LORD of hosts has sent me to you. 35And this shall come to pass, if you will diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God."
