6:1 And I turned, and lifted up my eyes, and looked, and behold,
there came four chariots out from between two mountains; and
the mountains [were] mountains of brass.
6:2 In the first chariot [were] red horses; and in the second
chariot black horses;
6:3 And in the third chariot white horses; and in the fourth
chariot grizzled and bay horses.
6:4 Then I answered and said to the angel that talked with me,
What [are] these, my lord?
6:5 And the angel answered and said to me, These [are] the four
spirits of the heavens, which go forth from standing before the
Lord of all the earth.
6:6 The black horses which [are] therein go forth into the north
country; and the white go forth after them; and the grizzled go
forth towards the south country.
6:7 And the bay went forth, and sought to go that they might
walk to and fro through the earth: and he said, Go hence, walk
to and fro through the earth. So they walked to and fro through
6:8 Then he cried upon me, and spoke to me, saying, Behold,
these that go towards the north country have quieted my spirit
in the north country.
6:9 And the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
6:10 Take of [them of] the captivity, [even] of Heldai, of
Tobijah, and of Jedaiah, who are come from Babylon, and come
thou the same day, and go into the house of Josiah the son of
6:11 Then take silver and gold, and make crowns, and set [them]
upon the head of Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest.
6:12 And speak to him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts,
saying, Behold the man whose name [is] The BRANCH; and he shall
grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the
6:13 Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall
bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne: and he
shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace
shall be between them both.
6:14 And the crowns shall be to Helem, and to Tobijah, and to
Jedaiah, and to Hen the son of Zephaniah, for a memorial in the
temple of the LORD.
6:15 And they [that are] far off shall come and build in the
temple of the LORD, and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts
hath sent me to you. And [this] shall come to pass, if ye will
diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God.
