Zechariah 6:1

Again I lifted up my eyes, and saw, and behold, four chariots came out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass.

Zechariah 6:2

In the first chariot were red horses; in the second chariot black horses;

Zechariah 6:3

in the third chariot white horses; and in the fourth chariot dappled horses, all of them powerful.

Zechariah 6:4

Then I asked the angel who talked with me, "What are these, my lord?"

Zechariah 6:5

The angel answered me, "These are the four winds of the sky, which go forth from standing before the Lord of all the earth.

Zechariah 6:6

The one with the black horses goes out toward the north country; and the white went out after them; and the dappled went forth toward the south country."

Zechariah 6:7

The strong went out, and sought to go that they might walk back and forth through the earth: and he said, "Go around and through the earth!" So they walked back and forth through the earth.

Zechariah 6:8

Then he called to me, and spoke to me, saying, "Behold, those who go toward the north country have quieted my spirit in the north country."

Zechariah 6:9

The word of the LORD came to me, saying,

Zechariah 6:10

"Take of them of the captivity, even of Heldai, of Tobijah, and of Jedaiah; and come the same day, and go into the house of Josiah the son of Zephaniah, where they have come from Babylon.

Zechariah 6:11

Yes, take silver and gold, and make crowns, and set them on the head of Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest;

Zechariah 6:12

and speak to him, saying, 'Thus says the LORD of Armies, "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 LORD;

Zechariah 6:13

even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule on his throne; and he shall be a priest on his throne; and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.

Zechariah 6:14

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.

Zechariah 6:15

Those who are far off shall come and build in the temple of the LORD; and you shall know that the LORD of Armies has sent me to you. This will happen, if you will diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God."'"
