The Gold Lampstand and the Two Olives Trees

1And the angel that talked with me came again, and waked me, as a man that is wakened out of his sleep,

2And said unto me, What see you? And I said, I have looked, and behold a lampstand all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and its seven lamps on it, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon its top:

3And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon its left side.

4So I answered and spoke to the angel that talked with me, saying, What are these, my lord?

5Then the angel that talked with me answered and said unto me, Know you not what these are? And I said, No, my lord.

6Then he answered and spoke unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, says the LORD of hosts.

7Who are you, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain: and he shall bring forth its headstone with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.

8Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

9The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and you shall know that the LORD of hosts has sent me unto you.

10For who has despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plumbline in the hand of Zerubbabel; these seven are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth.

11Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the lampstand and upon its left side?

12And I answered again, and said unto him, What are these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes pour out the golden oil?

13And he answered me and said, Know you not what these are? And I said, No, my lord.

14Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth.
