one And that Angel who spoke to me returned and woke me up, as they awaken a person from his sleep.
2 And he said to me: what do you see? And I answered: I see, here is a lamp made of gold, and a cup for oil on top of it, and seven lamps on it, and seven tubes at the lamps, which are on top of it;
3 and two olives on it, one on the right side of the calyx, the other on its left side.
4 And I answered and said to the angel that was saying to me: What is it, my lord?
5 And the angel who spoke to me answered and said to me: do you not know what it is? And I said: I do not know, my lord.
6 Then he answered and said to me this way: this is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel, expressing: not by war and not by force, but by My Spirit, says the Lord of hosts.
7 Who are you, great mountain, before Zerubbabel? you are a plain, and he will make the cornerstone with noisy exclamations: `` grace, grace on him! ''
eight And the word of the Lord came to me:
nine the hands of Zerubbabel laid the foundation of this house; his hands will finish him, and you will know that the Lord of hosts sent me to you.
ten For who can consider this day unimportant when those seven joyfully look at the construction plumb in the hands of Zerubbabel — these are the eyes of the Lord, which encompass the whole earth with their eyes?

eleven Then I answered and told him: what do those two olives mean on the right side of the lamp and on the left side of it?
12 I began to speak a second time and told him: what do two oil-bearing branches mean, which pour out gold from themselves through two golden tubes?
thirteen And he said to me: you do not know what it is? I answered: I do not know, my lord.
fourteen And he said: these are two anointed with oil, coming unto the Lord of the whole earth.
