1 And I turned and raised mine eyes and looked, and behold four chariots going forth from the midst of two mountains, and mountains were mountains of brass:
2 In the first chariot were red horses, and in the second chariot black horses,
3 And in the third chariot white horses, and in the fourth chariot grisled and bay horses.
4 And I answered and said to the angel who was speaking with me, What are these, my Lord?
5 And the angel answered and said to me, These are the four spirits of heaven, going forth from their station before the Lord of the whole earth;
6 And the black horses go forth to the land of the north, and the white go forth after them, and the grisled go forth to the land of the south.
7 When the bay went forth, they asked that they might perambulate through the earth: and the perambulated through the earth.
8 And he called me, and spoke to me, saying, See, those who went forth to the land of the north have quieted my spirit in the land of the north.
9 And the word of Jehovah came to me, saying,
10 Take from the exiles, from Heldai, and from Tobiah, and from Jedaiah (and go in that day into the house of Josiah the son of Zephaniah) who have come from Babylon;
11 Yea take from them silver and gold and make crowns, (154,) and set them on the head of Joshua, the son of Josedech, the high-priest;
12 And speak to him, saying, Thus saith Jehovah of hosts, saying, Behold the man! Branch is his name; And from his won place shall he grow up, And shall build the temple of Jehovah;
13 Yea, he shall build the temple of Jehovah, And shall himself bear the glory, And shall sit and rule on his throne, And shall be a priest on his throne, And the counsel of peace shall be between the two.
14 And the crowns shall be to Heldai and to Tobiah, And to Jedaiah, and to Hen, the son of Zephaniah, For a memorial in the temple of Jehovah.
15 And those afar off shall come and build In the temple of Jehovah; And ye shall know That Jehovah of hosts, has sent me to you: And thus shall it be, if by hearing ye will hear The voice of Jehovah your God.
