Zechariah 6
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And I turn back, and lift up my eyes, and look, and behold, four chariots are coming forth from between two of the mountains, and the mountains [are] mountains of bronze. 2In the first chariot [are] red horses, and in the second chariot brown horses, 3and in the third chariot white horses, and in the fourth chariot strong spotted horses. 4And I answer and say to the messenger who is speaking with me, “What [are] these, my lord?” 5And the messenger answers and says to me, “These [are] four spirits of the heavens coming forth from presenting themselves before the Lord of the whole earth. 6The brown horses that [are] therein, are coming forth to the land of the north; and the white have come forth to their back part; and the spotted have come forth to the land of the south; 7and the strong ones have come forth, and they seek to go to walk up and down in the earth”; and he says, “Go, walk up and down in the earth”; and they walk up and down in the earth. 8And he calls me, and speaks to me, saying, “See, those coming forth to the land of the north have caused My Spirit to rest in the land of the north.”

9And there is a word of YHWH to me, saying, 10“Take of the captivity (who came from Babylon) from Heldai, from Tobijah, and from Jedaiah, and you have come in—you, in that day, indeed, you have come into the house of Josiah son of Zephaniah,

11and you have taken silver and gold, and have made a crown, and have placed [it] on the head of Joshua son of Josedech, the high priest, 12and have spoken to him, saying, "" Thus spoke YHWH of Hosts, saying, "" Behold, the Man! A Shoot—[is] His Name, "" And from His place He shoots up, "" And He has built the temple of YHWH. 13Indeed, He builds the temple of YHWH, "" And He carries away splendor, "" And He has sat and ruled on His throne, "" And has been a priest on His throne, "" And a counsel of peace is between both. 14And the crown is to Helem, and to Tobijah, and to Jedaiah, and to Hen son of Zephaniah, for a memorial in the temple of YHWH. 15And the far-off come in, and they have built in the temple of YHWH, and you have known that YHWH of Hosts has sent me to you, indeed, it has come to pass, if you certainly listen to the voice of your God YHWH.”
