Zechariah 4 ©

1By the golden candlestick is foreshown the good success of Zerubbabel's foundation; 11by the two olive trees the two anointed ones.

1

AND athe angel that talked with me came again, and bwaked me, as a man that is wakened out of his sleep,

2

And said unto me, cWhat seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold da candlestick all of gold, with 1a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and 2seven epipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof:

3

And ftwo olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.

f v.11,14. Re. 11.4.
4

So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with me, saying, gWhat are these, my lord?

g Pr. 4.7. Ja. 1.5. Mat. 16.17. 2Co. 3.5. Mat. 7.7,8.
5

Then the angel that talked with me answered and said unto me, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, hNo, my lord.

6

Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, iNot by 3might, nor by power, but jby my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.

7

Who art thou, kO great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth lthe headstone thereof mwith shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.

l v.9. Ezr. 6.15.
8

Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

9

nThe hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou oshalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you.

10

For pwho hath despised the day of small things? 4for they shall rejoice, and shall see the 5*plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; qthey are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth.

11

¶Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these rtwo olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof?

r v.3. Re. 11.4.
12

And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which 6through the two golden pipes 7empty 8the golden oil out of themselves?

13

And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.

14

Then said he, These are the two 9anointed ones, that sstand by the Lord of the whole earth.
