Four Chariots

1Then I lifted up my eyes again and saw, and behold, four chariots were coming forth from between the two mountains; and the mountains were bronze mountains. 2With the first chariot were red horses, with the second chariot black horses, 3with the third chariot white horses, and with the fourth chariot dappled horses—all of them mighty. 4Then I answered and said to the angel who was speaking with me, “What are these, my lord?” 5And the angel answered and said to me, “These are the four spirits of heaven, going forth after standing before the Lord of all the earth, 6with one of which the black horses are going forth to the north country; and the white ones go forth after them, and the dappled ones go forth to the south country. 7Now the mighty ones went out, and they sought to go to [†]patrol the earth.” And He said, “Go, [†]patrol the earth.” So they [†]patrolled the earth. 8Then He cried out to me and spoke to me saying, “See, those who are going to the land of the north have caused My Spirit to have rest in the land of the north.”

The Crown and the Temple

9And the word of Yahweh came to me, saying, 10“Take an offering from the exiles, from Heldai, Tobijah, and Jedaiah; and you come the same day and come into the house of Josiah the son of Zephaniah, where they have come from Babylon. 11And take silver and gold, make an ornate crown, and set it on the head of Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest. 12Then you will say to him, ‘Thus says Yahweh of hosts, “Behold, a man whose name is [†]Branch, and He will [†]branch out from where He is; and He will build the temple of Yahweh. 13Indeed, it is He who will build the temple of Yahweh, and He who will bear the splendor and sit and rule on His throne. Thus, He will be a priest on His throne, and the counsel of peace will be between the two [†]offices.”’ 14Now the crown will become a memorial in the temple of Yahweh to Helem, Tobijah, Jedaiah, and [†]Hen the son of Zephaniah. 15And those who are far off will come and [†]build the temple of Yahweh.” Then you will know that Yahweh of hosts has sent me to you. And it will happen if you utterly listen to the voice of Yahweh your God.
