The vision of the lampstand of gold and two olive trees
the angel who spoke with me returned and roused me as a man is roused from his sleep.
And he said to me, What do you see? And I said, I see that there is a 1alampstand
all of gold, with its bowl on top of it and its bseven
lamps upon it, with 2seven
pipes for each of the lamps on top of it;
And there are 1two aolive
trees beside it, one to the right of the bowl and one to the left.
And I answered and spoke to the angel who spoke with me, saying, What are these, sir?
And the angel who spoke with me answered and said to me, Do you not know what these are? And I said, No, sir.
And he answered and spoke to me, saying, 1This
is the word of Jehovah to Zerubbabel, saying, Not by amight
nor by power, but by My 2Spirit
, says Jehovah of hosts.
Who are you, O great amountain
? Before Zerubbabel you will become
a plain, and he will 1bring
forth the btopstone
of Grace, grace to it.
Moreover the word of Jehovah came to me, saying,
The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the afoundation
of this house, and his hands will bfinish it
; and you will cknow
that Jehovah of hosts has sent Me to you.
For who has despised the day of asmall
things? For these 1seven
rejoice when they see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel; they are the beyes
of Jehovah running to and fro on the whole earth.
Then I answered and said to him, What are these two aolive
trees on the right of the lampstand and on its left?
And I answered a second time and said to him, What are the two olive 1branches
that are by the side of the two golden spouts, 2which
empty the 3gold
And he spoke to me, saying, Do you not know what these are? And I said, No, sir.
And he said, These are the two asons
of oil, who stand by the bLord
of the whole earth.
