9 The aword of the Lord also came to me, saying,

10 “aTake an offering from the exiles, from Heldai, Tobijah and Jedaiah; and you go the same day and enter the house of Josiah the son of Zephaniah, where they have arrived from Babylon.

The Symbolic Crowns

11 “Take silver and gold, make an ornate acrown and set it on the head of bJoshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest.

12 “Then say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, “Behold, a man whose name is 1aBranch, for He will 2bbranch out from where He is; and He will cbuild the temple of the Lord.

13 “Yes, it is He who will build the temple of the Lord, and He who will abear the honor and sit and brule on His throne. Thus, He will be a cpriest on His throne, and the counsel of peace will be between the two 1offices.” ’

14 “Now the acrown will become a reminder in the temple of the Lord to Helem, Tobijah, Jedaiah and 1Hen the son of Zephaniah.

15 “aThose who are far off will come and 1build the temple of the Lord.” Then you will bknow that the Lord of hosts has sent me to you. And it will take place if you completely cobey the Lord your God.
