Zechariah 3

Studovat vnitřní smysl


1 And He showed me Joshua the great priest standing before the angel of Jehovah, and Satan* standing at his right·​·hand to oppose him.

2 And Jehovah said to Satan, Jehovah rebuke thee, Satan. And Jehovah, who has chosen Jerusalem, will rebuke thee. Is not this a firebrand rescued out·​·of the fire?

3 And Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the angel.

4 And he answered and said to those who stood before him, saying, Remove the filthy garments from on him. And to him he said, See, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from on thee, and I will clothe thee with a change·​·of·​·vestment.

5 And I said, Let them set a clean tiara on his head. And they set the clean tiara on his head, and clothed him with garments. And the angel of Jehovah was standing by.

6 And the angel of Jehovah testified to Joshua, saying,

7 Thus says Jehovah of Armies: If thou wilt walk in My ways, and if thou wilt keep My charge, then thou shalt also make·​·judgment for My house, and shalt also keep My courts, and I will give thee places to walk among these who stand.

8 Hear now, O Joshua the great priest, thou, and thy companions sitting before thee; for these men are a portent; for, behold, I will cause My Servant the Growing·​·Branch to come.

9 For behold, the stone that I have put before Joshua: on one stone shall be seven eyes; behold, I will engrave its engraving, says Jehovah of Armies, and I will withdraw the iniquity of that land in one day.

10 In that day, says Jehovah of Armies, you shall call, a man to his companion, under the vine and under the fig·​·tree.
