Vision of the Lampstand and Olive Trees

4 Now athe angel who talked with me came back and wakened me, bas a man who is wakened out of his sleep. And he said to me, “What do you see?”

So I said, “I am looking, and there is ca lampstand of solid gold with a bowl on top of it, dand on the stand seven lamps with seven pipes to the seven lamps. eTwo olive trees are by it, one at the right of the bowl and the other at its left.” So I answered and spoke to the angel who talked with me, saying, “What are these, my lord?”

Then the angel who talked with me answered and said to me, “Do you not know what these are?”

And I said, “No, my lord.”

So he answered and said to me:

“This is the word of the Lord to fZerubbabel:

g‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’

Says the Lord of hosts.

7 ‘Who are you, hO great mountain?

Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain!

And he shall bring forth ithe capstone

jWith shouts of “Grace, grace to it!” ’ ”

Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying:

9 “The hands of Zerubbabel

kHave laid the foundation of this 1temple;

His hands lshall also finish it.

Then myou will know

That the nLord of hosts has sent Me to you.

10 For who has despised the day of osmall things?

For these seven rejoice to see

The 2plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel.

pThey are the eyes of the Lord,

Which scan to and fro throughout the whole earth.”

11 Then I answered and said to him, “What are these qtwo olive trees—at the right of the lampstand and at its left?” 12 And I further answered and said to him, “What are these two olive branches that drip 3into the receptacles of the two gold pipes from which the golden oil drains?”

13 Then he answered me and said, “Do you not know what these are?

And I said, “No, my lord.”

14 So he said, r“These are the two 4anointed ones, swho stand beside the Lord of the whole earth.”
