Clean Garments for the High Priest

3 Then he showed me Joshuaa u the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satanb v standing at his right side to accuse him. The Lord said to Satan, “The Lord rebuke you,w Satan! The Lord, who has chosenx Jerusalem, rebuke you! Is not this man a burning sticky snatched from the fire?”z

Now Joshua was dressed in filthy clothes as he stood before the angel. 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,a and I will put fine garmentsb on you.”

Then I said, “Put a clean turbanc 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 obedience to me and keep my requirements,d then you will govern my housee and have chargef of my courts, and I will give you a place among these standing here.g

“ ‘Listen, High Priesth Joshua, you and your associates seated before you, who are men symbolici of things to come: I am going to bring my servant, the Branch.j See, the stone I have set in front of Joshua!k There are seven eyesc l on that one stone,m and I will engrave an inscription on it,’ says the Lord Almighty, ‘and I will remove the sinn of this land in a single day.

10 “ ‘In that day each of you will invite your neighbor to sito under your vine and fig tree,p’ declares the Lord Almighty.”
