Commentary On Zechariah Malachi by Jean Calvin


1 And return did the angel who had bee speaking with me, and roused me as a man who is roused from his sleep:

2 And he said to me, What dost thou see? and I said, I see and behold a candlestick, all of gold, and a bowl on its top, and seven lamps on it, seven pourers to the seven lamps, which are on its top,

3 And two olive-trees by it, one on the right of the bowl and one on its left.

4 Then I answered and said to the angel who was speaking with me, saying, What are these, my Lord?

5 And the angel who was speaking with me, answered and said to me, Knowest thou not? and I said, No, my Lord.

6 And he answered and said to me, saying, Not by a host, and not by courage, But by my Spirit, (110) Saith Jehovah of hosts.

7 What art thou, great mountain, Before Zerubbabel? -- A plain: And he shall bring forth the top-stone, With shoutings, |Grace, grace to it.|

8 Then came the word of Jehovah to me, saying, --

9 The hands of Zerubbabel have founded this house, And his hands shall complete it; And thou shalt know That Jehovah of hosts has sent me to you.

10 For who has despised the day of small things! For they shall rejoice when they see The plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel. These seven, the eyes of Jehovah are they, Which go round through the whole earth.

11 And I answered and said to him, What are these two olive-trees on the right of the candlestick, and on its left?

12 And I answered the second time and said, What are these two flowings of the olive-tree, which are between the two pipes of gold, which pour golden oil from themselves?

13 And he said to me, saying, Knowest thou not what these are? And I said, No, my Lord.

14 And he said, These are the two sons of oil which stand with the Lord of the whole earth.
