Zechariah 6

1Then I turned around. I looked up and saw four chariots going between two bronze mountains. 2Red horses were pulling the first chariot. Black horses were pulling the second chariot. 3White horses were pulling the third chariot. And horses with red spots were pulling the fourth chariot. 4I asked the angel that was talking with me, “Sir, what does this mean?” 5The angel said, “These are the four winds. They have just come from the Master of the whole world. 6The black horses will go north, ˻the red horses will go east,˼ the white horses will go west, and the horses with red spots will go south.” 7The red spotted horses were anxious to go look at their part of the earth, so the angel told them, “Go walk through the earth.” So they went walking through their part of the earth. 8Then ˻the Lord˼ yelled at me. He said, “Look, those horses that were going north finished their job ˻in Babylon˼. They have calmed my spirit—I am not angry now!” 9Then I received another message from the Lord. He said, 10“Heldai, Tobijah, and Jedaiah have come from the captives in Babylon. Get silver and gold from those men and then go to the house of Josiah son of Zephaniah. 11Use that silver and gold to make a crown. Put that crown on Joshua’s head. (Joshua was the high priest. He was the son of Jehozadak.) Then tell Joshua these things: 12The Lord All-Powerful says these things: 'There is a man called The Branch. He will grow strong, and he will build the Lord’s temple. 13He will build the Lord’s temple, and he will receive the honor. He will sit on his throne and be the ruler. And a priest will stand by his throne. These two men will work together in peace. 14“They will put the crown in the temple. This will be a reminder for Heldai, Tobijah, Jedaiah, and Zephaniah’s son, Josiah It will help them remember ˻that the king’s power comes from God˼. 15People living far away will come and build the temple. Then you will know for sure that the Lord sent me to you people. All these things will happen if you do what the Lord says.”
