Zechariah 3

A Vision of Joshua the High Priest

1 Then he showed me a Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of the LORD, and b Satan 1 standing at his right hand to oppose him. 2 And the LORD said to Satan, c "The LORD rebuke you, Satan! The LORD who d has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! e Is this not a brand plucked from the fire?" 3 Now Joshua was clothed with f filthy garments, and was standing before the Angel. 4 Then He answered and spoke to those who stood before Him, saying, "Take away the filthy garments from him." And to him He said, "See, I have removed your iniquity from you, g and I will clothe you with rich robes." 5 And I said, "Let them put a clean h turban on his head." So they put a clean turban on his head, and they put the clothes on him. And the Angel of the LORD stood by.

6 Then the Angel of the LORD admonished Joshua, saying, 7 "Thus says the LORD of hosts:
'If you will walk in My ways,
And if you will i keep My command,
Then you shall also j judge My house,
And likewise have charge of My courts;
I will give you places to walk
Among these who k stand here.
8 'Hear, O Joshua, the high priest,
You and your companions who sit before you,
For they are l a 2 wondrous sign;
For behold, I am bringing forth m My Servant the n BRANCH.
9 For behold, the stone
That I have laid before Joshua:
o Upon the stone are p seven eyes.
Behold, I will engrave its inscription,'
Says the LORD of hosts,
'And q I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.
10 r In that day,' says the LORD of hosts,
'Everyone will invite his neighbor
s Under his vine and under his fig tree.' "
