1And the angel who talked with me came again and woke me, like a man who is awakened out of his sleep.2And he said to me, “What do you see?” I said, “I see, and behold, a lampstand all of gold, with a bowl on the top of it, and seven lamps on it, with seven lips on each of the lamps that are on the top of it.3And there are two olive trees by it, one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left.”4And I said to the angel who talked with me, “What are these, my lord?”5Then the angel who talked with me answered and said to me, “Do you not know what these are?” I said, “No, my lord.”6Then he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of hosts.7Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain. And he shall bring forward the top stone amid shouts of ‘Grace, grace to it!’”
8Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying,9 “The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also complete it. Then you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent me to you.
