AND I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came afour chariots out from between two mountains; and the mountains were bmountains of brass.


In the first chariot were cred horses; and in the second chariot dblack horses;


And in the third chariot ewhite horses; and in the fourth chariot 1*grisled and bay horses.


Then I answered and said unto the angel that talked with me, fWhat are these, my lord?


And the angel answered and said unto me, These are gthe four 2spirits of the heavens, which go forth from hstanding before the Lord of all the earth.


The black horses which are therein go forth into ithe north country; and the white go forth jafter them; and the *grisled go forth toward the south country.


And the kbay went forth, and sought to go that they might walk to and fro through the earth: and he said, Get you hence, walk to and fro through the earth. So they walked to and fro through the earth.


Then cried he upon me, and spake unto me, saying, Behold, these that go toward the north country have lquieted my spirit in the north country.


¶And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,


Take of them of the captivity, even of Heldai, of Tobijah, and of Jedaiah, mwhich are come from Babylon, and come thou the same day, and go into the house of Josiah the son of Zephaniah;

And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold pthe man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall 3grow up out of his place, and qhe shall build the temple of the LORD:


rEven he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall sbear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a tpriest upon his throne: and the ucounsel of peace shall be between them both.


And the crowns shall be to vHelem, and to Tobijah, and to Jedaiah, and to Hen the son of Zephaniah, for wa memorial in the temple of the LORD.

And they that xare far off shall come and build in the temple of the LORD, and yye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you. And this shall come to pass, zif ye will diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God.
