The Command to Crown Joshua

Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying: 10 “Receive the gift from the captives—from Heldai, Tobijah, and Jedaiah, who have come from Babylon—and go the same day and enter the house of Josiah the son of Zephaniah. 11 Take the silver and gold, make ian 2elaborate crown, and set it on the head of jJoshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest. 12 Then speak to him, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, saying:

“Behold, kthe Man whose name is the lBRANCH!

From His place He shall 3branch out,

mAnd He shall build the temple of the Lord;

13 Yes, He shall build the temple of the Lord.

He nshall bear the glory,

And shall sit and rule on His throne;

So oHe shall be a priest on His throne,

And the counsel of peace shall be between 4them both.” ’

14 “Now the 5elaborate crown shall be pfor a memorial in the temple of the Lord 6for Helem, Tobijah, Jedaiah, and Hen the son of Zephaniah. 15 Even qthose from afar shall come and build the temple of the Lord. Then you shall know that the Lord of hosts has sent Me to you. And this shall come to pass if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God.”
