Zechariah, Chapter 6

6:1 And again I lifted up my eyes, and looked, and saw four chariots come out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of bronze.
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 strong horses.
6:4 Then I answered and said to the angel who talked with me, What are these, my lord?
6:5 And the angel answered and said to me, These are the four winds of heaven, which go forth from standing before the Lord of all the earth.
6:6 [The chariot] in which are the black horses goes forth toward the north country; and the white went forth after them; and the grizzled went forth toward the south country.
6:7 And the strong went forth, and sought to go that they might walk to and fro through the earth: and he said, Go+ from here, walk to and fro through the earth. So they walked to and fro through the earth.
6:8 Then he cried to me, and spoke to me, saying, Look, those who go toward the north country have quieted my spirit in the north country.
6:9 And the word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
6:10 Take of them of the captivity, even of Heldai, of Tobijah, and of Jedaiah; and you come the same day, and go into the house of Josiah the son of Zephaniah, where they have come from Babylon;
6:11 yes, take [of them] silver and gold, and make crowns, and set them on the head of Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest;
6:12 and speak to him, saying, Thus speaks Yahweh of hosts, saying, Look, the man whose name is the Branch: and he will grow up out of his place; and he will build the temple of Yahweh;
6:13 even he will build the temple of Yahweh; and he will bear the grandeur, and will sit and rule on his throne; and he will be a priest on his throne; and the counsel of peace will be between them both.
6:14 And the crowns will be to Helem, and to Tobijah, and to Jedaiah, and for the kindness of the son of Zephaniah, for a memorial in the temple of Yahweh.
6:15 And those who are far off will come and build in the temple of Yahweh; and you+ will know that Yahweh of hosts has sent me to you+. And [this] will come to pass, if you+ will diligently obey the voice of Yahweh your+ God.
