Now Joshua was clothed with ifilthy garments, and stood before the angel.

4

And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, jTake away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have kcaused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will lclothe thee with change of *raiment.

5

And I said, Let them set a mfair *mitre upon his head. So they set a fair mitre upon his head, and clothed him with garments. And the angel of the LORD stood by.

And the angel of the LORD nprotested unto Joshua, saying,

7

Thus saith the LORD of hosts; oIf thou wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my 3charge, then thou shalt also pjudge my house, and shalt also keep my courts, and I will give thee 4places qto walk among these that stand by.

Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are 5men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the rBRANCH.

9

For behold sthe stone that I have laid before tJoshua; upon one stone shall be useven eyes: behold, I will vengrave the *graving thereof, saith the LORD of hosts, and I wwill remove the iniquity of that land xin one day.
