Zechariah 3:1–10

Vision of the High Priest

3 Then he showed me aJoshua the high priest standing before the Angel of the Lord, and bSatan 1standing at his right hand to oppose him. And the Lord said to Satan, c“The Lord rebuke you, Satan! The Lord who dhas chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! eIs this not a brand plucked from the fire?”

Now Joshua was clothed with ffilthy garments, and was standing before the Angel.

Then He answered and spoke to those who stood before Him, saying, “Take away the filthy garments from him.” And to him He said, “See, I have removed your iniquity from you, gand I will clothe you with rich robes.”

And I said, “Let them put a clean hturban on his head.”

So they put a clean turban on his head, and they put the clothes on him. And the Angel of the Lord stood by.

The Coming Branch

Then the Angel of the Lord admonished Joshua, saying, “Thus says the Lord of hosts:

‘If you will walk in My ways,

And if you will ikeep My command,

Then you shall also jjudge My house,

And likewise have charge of My courts;

I will give you places to walk

Among these who kstand here.

8 ‘Hear, O Joshua, the high priest,

You and your companions who sit before you,

For they are la 2wondrous sign;

For behold, I am bringing forth mMy Servant the nBRANCH.

9 For behold, the stone

That I have laid before Joshua:

oUpon the stone are pseven eyes.

Behold, I will engrave its inscription,’

Says the Lord of hosts,

‘And qI will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.

10 rIn that day,’ says the Lord of hosts,

‘Everyone will invite his neighbor

sUnder his vine and under his fig tree.’ ”
