Chapter 4

The Golden Lampstand and Olive Trees

1 Then athe angel who was speaking with me returned and broused me, as a man who is awakened from his sleep. 2 He said to me, “aWhat do you see?” And I said, “I see, and behold, a blampstand all of gold with its bowl on the top of it, and its cseven lamps on it with seven spouts belonging to each of the lamps which are on the top of it; 3 also atwo olive trees by it, one on the right side of the bowl and the other on its left side.” 4 Then I said to the angel who was speaking with me saying, “What are these, amy lord?” 5 So athe angel who was speaking with me answered and said to me, “bDo you not know what these are?” And I said, “No, my lord.” 6 Then he 1said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to aZerubbabel saying, ‘bNot by might nor by power, but by My cSpirit,’ says the Lord of hosts. 7 ‘What are you, O great amountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain; and he will bring forth the top stone with bshouts of “Grace, grace to it!” ’ ”

8 Also the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 9 “The hands of Zerubbabel have alaid the foundation of this house, and his hands will bfinish it. Then you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent me to 1you. 10 For who has despised the day of asmall things? 1But these bseven will be glad when they see the 2cplumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel—these are the deyes of the Lord which erange to and fro throughout the earth.”

11 Then I said to him, “What are these atwo olive trees on the right of the lampstand and on its left?” 12 And I answered the second time and said to him, “What are the two olive 1branches which are beside the two golden pipes, which empty the golden oil from themselves?” 13 So he answered me, saying, “aDo you not know what these are?” And I said, “No, bmy lord.” 14 Then he said, “These are the two 1aanointed ones who are bstanding by the cLord of the whole earth.”
