Gold Lampstand and the Two Olive Trees
4:1 And the angel that talked with me came again,
and waked me, as a man that is wakened out of his sleep.
4:2 And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have
looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl
upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven
pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof:
4:3 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of
the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.
4:4 So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with
me, saying, What are these, my lord?
4:5 Then the angel that talked with me answered and said
unto me, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my
4:6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the
word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor
by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.
4:7 Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou
shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone
thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.
4:8 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
4:9 The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of
this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt
know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you.
4:10 For who hath despised the day of small things? for
they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of
Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD,
which run to and fro through the whole earth.
4:11 Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two
olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon
the left side thereof?
4:12 And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these
two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty
the golden oil out of themselves?
4:13 And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what
these be? And I said, No, my lord.
4:14 Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that
stand by the LORD of the whole earth.
