1 And the angel that talked with me returned, and awakened me, as when a man is awakened out of his sleep. 2 And he said to me, What seest thou? And I said, I have seen, and behold a candlestick all of gold, and its bowl upon it, and seven lamps upon it, and seven oil funnels to the lamps upon it: 3 and two olive-trees above it, one on the right of the bowl, and one on the left. 4 And I inquired, and spoke to the angel that talked with me, saying, What are these things, [my] lord? 5 And the angel that talked with me answered, and spoke to me, saying, Knowest thou not what these things are? And I said, No, [my] lord. 6 And he answered and spoke to me, saying, This is the word of the Lord to Zorobabel, saying, not by mighty power, nor by strength, but by my Spirit, saith the Lord Almighty. 7 Who art thou, the great mountain before Zorobabel, that thou shouldest prosper? whereas I will bring out the stone of the inheritance, the grace of it the equal of [my] grace. 8 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 9 The hands of Zorobabel have laid the foundation of this house, and his hands shall finish it: and thou shalt know that the Lord Almighty has sent me to thee. 10 For who has despised the small days? surely they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet of tin in the hand of Zorobabel: these are the seven eyes that look upon all the earth. 11 And I answered, and said to him, What are these two olive-trees, which are on the right and left hand of the candlestick? 12 And I asked the second time, and said to him, What are the two branches of the olive-trees that are by the side of the two golden pipes that pour into and communicate with the golden oil funnels? 13 And he said to me, Knowest thou not what these are? and I said, No, [my] lord. 14 And he said, These are the two anointed ones [that] stand by the Lord of the whole earth. ΚΑΙ ἐπέστρεψεν ὁ ἄγγελος ὁ λαλῶν ἐν ἐμοὶ καὶ ἐξήγειρέ με ὃν τρόπον ὅταν ἐξεγερθῇ ἄνθρωπος ἐξ ὕπνου αὐτοῦ 2 καὶ εἶπε πρός με· τί σὺ βλέπεις; καὶ εἶπα· ἑώρακα καὶ ἰδοὺ λυχνία χρυσῆ ὅλη, καὶ τὸ λαμπάδιον ἐπάνω αὐτῆς, καὶ ἑπτὰ λύχνοι ἐπάνω αὐτῆς, καὶ ἑπτὰ ἐπαρυστρίδες τοῖς λύχνοις τοῖς ἐπάνω αὐτῆς· 3 καὶ δύο ἐλαῖαι ἐπάνω αὐτῆς, μία ἐκ δεξιῶν τοῦ λαμπαδίου αὐτῆς καὶ μία ἐξ εὐωνύμων. 4 καὶ ἐπηρώτησα καὶ εἶπα πρὸς τὸν ἄγγελον τὸν λαλοῦντα ἐν ἐμοὶ λέγων· τί ἐστι ταῦτα, κύριε; 5 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη ὁ ἄγγελος ὁ λαλῶν ἐν ἐμοὶ καὶ εἶπε πρός με λέγων· οὐ γινώσκεις τί ἐστι ταῦτα; καὶ εἶπα· οὐχί, κύριε. 6 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη καὶ εἶπε πρός με λέγων· οὗτος ὁ λόγος Κυρίου πρὸς Ζοροβάβελ λέγων· οὐκ ἐν δυνάμει μεγάλῃ οὐδὲ ἐν ἰσχύϊ, ἀλλ᾿ ἢ ἐν πνεύματί μου, λέγει Κύριος παντοκράτωρ. 7 τίς εἶ σύ, τό ὄρος τὸ μέγα, τὸ πρὸ προσώπου Ζαροβάβελ τοῦ κατορθῶσαι; καὶ ἐξοίσω τὸν λίθον τῆς κληρονομίας ἰσότητα χάριτος χάριτα αὐτῆς. 8 καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος Κυρίου πρός με λέγων· 9 αἱ χεῖρες Ζοροβάβελ ἐθεμελίωσαν τὸν οἶκον τοῦτον, καὶ αἱ χεῖρες αὐτοῦ ἐπιτελέσουσιν αὐτόν, καὶ ἐπιγνώσῃ, διότι Κύριος παντοκράτωρ ἐξαπέσταλκέ με πρός σε. 10 διότι τίς ἐξουδένωσεν εἰς ἡμέρας μικράς; καὶ χαροῦνται καὶ ὄψονται τὸν λίθον τὸν κασσιτέρινον ἐν χειρὶ Ζοροβάβελ. ἑπτὰ οὗτοι ὀφθαλμοὶ Κυρίου εἰσὶν οἱ ἐπιβλέποντες ἐπὶ πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν. 11 καὶ ἀπεκρίθην καὶ εἶπα πρὸς αὐτόν· τί αἱ δύο ἐλαῖαι αὗται, αἱ ἐκ δεξιῶν τῆς λυχνίας καὶ ἐξ εὐωνύμων; 12 καὶ ἐπηρώτησα ἐκ δευτέρου καὶ εἶπα πρὸς αὐτόν· τί οἱ δύο κλάδοι τῶν ἐλαιῶν οἱ ἐν ταῖς χερσὶ τῶν δύο μυξωτήρων τῶν χρυσῶν τῶν ἐπιχεόντων καὶ ἐπαναγόντων τὰς ἐπαρυστρίδας τὰς χρυσᾶς; 13 καὶ εἶπε πρός με· οὐκ οἶδας τί ἐστι ταῦτα; καὶ εἶπα οὐχί, κύριε. 14 καὶ εἶπεν· οὗτοι οἱ δύο υἱοὶ τῆς πιότητος παρεστήκασι Κυρίῳ πάσης τῆς γῆς.
