1 And again I lifted up my eyes and looked, and, behold, four chariots were coming
from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of bronze.
2 With the first chariot were red horses, and with the second chariot black horses,
3 and with the third chariot white horses, and with the fourth dappled and strong horses.
4 And I answered and said to the angel who talked with me, What are these, my lord?
5 And the angel answered and said to me, These are the four spirits of Heaven who go
forth from standing before the Lord of all the earth.
6 The black horses in it go into the land of the north, and the white go after them; and the dappled ones go toward the land of the south.
7 And the strong ones went forth and sought to go, to walk to and fro through the earth. And He said, Go. Walk to and fro through the earth. So they walked to and fro through the earth.
8 And He cried out to me, and spoke to me, saying, Behold, these who go toward the land of the north have given My Spirit rest in the land of the north.
9 And the Word of Jehovah came unto me, saying,
10 Take from Heldai, from Tobijah, and from Jedaiah, the exiles who have come from
Babylon; and in the same day go and enter into the house of Josiah, the son of
11 And take silver and gold, and make a crown, and set it on the head of Joshua, the son
of Jehozadak, the high priest.
12 And speak to him, saying, Thus says Jehovah of Hosts, saying, Behold, the Man whose name is THE BRANCH. And He shall spring up out of His place, and He shall build the temple of Jehovah.
13 Even He shall build the temple of Jehovah; and He shall bear the glory, and shall sit
and rule on His throne. And He shall be a priest on His throne; and the counsel of peace
shall be between the two of them.
14 And the crown shall be for a memorial in the temple of Jehovah, to Helem, and to
Tobijah, and to Jedaiah, and to Hen, the son of Zephaniah.
15 And those from afar shall come and build in the temple of Jehovah. And you shall
know that Jehovah of Hosts has sent me to you. And this shall come to pass if you will
give heed and obey the voice of Jehovah your God.
