6 And I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came four chariots out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains aof brass. 2 In the first chariot were bcred horses; and in the second chariot dblack horses; 3 And in the third chariot bewhite horses; and in the fourth chariot fgrisled and ||gbay horses. 4 Then I hanswered and said unto ithe angel that talked with me, What are these, my lord? 5 And the angel answered and said unto me, kThese are the four ||spirits of the heavens, which go forth from lstanding before mthe Lord of all the earth. 6 dThe black horses which are therein go forth into nthe north country; and ethe white go forth after them; and fthe grisled go forth toward othe south country. 7 And gthe bay went forth, and sought to go that they might pwalk to and fro through the earth: and he said, Get you hence, pwalk to and fro through the earth. So they pwalked to and fro through the earth. 8 Then qcried he upon me, and spake unto me, saying, Behold, these that go toward nthe north country have quieted my rspirit in nthe north country.
9 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, 10 Take of them of the captivity, even of Heldai, of Tobijah, and of Jedaiah, which are come from Babylon, and come thou the same day, and go into the house of Josiah the son of sZephaniah; 11 Then take silver and gold, and make tcrowns, and set them upon the head of uJoshua the son of Josedech, the high priest; 12 And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying,
And yhe shall build the temple of the Lord:
13 yEven he shall build the temple of the Lord;
And zshall sit and rule upon his throne;
And bhe shall be a priest upon his throne:
And the counsel of peace shall be between them both.
14 And cthe crowns shall be to dHelem, and to dTobijah, and to dJedaiah, and to Hen the son of dZephaniah, efor a memorial in the temple of the Lord. 15 And fthey that are far off gshall come and build in the temple of the Lord, and hye shall know that the Lord of hosts hath sent me unto you. And this shall come to pass, if ye will diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God.
