Zechariah - Chapter 6 | King James Version (KJV)

  • 1. And I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came four chariots out from between two mountains; and the mountains {cf15I were} mountains of brass.
  • 2. In the first chariot {cf15I were} red horses; and in the second chariot black horses;
  • 3. And in the third chariot white horses; and in the fourth chariot grisled and bay horses.
  • 4. Then I answered and said unto the angel that talked with me, What {cf15I are} these, my lord?
  • 5. And the angel answered and said unto me, These {cf15I are} the four spirits of the heavens, which go forth from standing before the Lord of all the earth.
  • 6. The black horses which {cf15I are} therein go forth into the north country; and the white go forth after them; and the grisled go forth toward the south country.
  • 7. And the bay went forth, and sought to go that they might walk to and fro through the earth: and he said, Get you hence, walk to and fro through the earth. So they walked to and fro through the earth.
  • 8. Then cried he upon me, and spake unto me, saying, Behold, these that go toward the north country have quieted my spirit in the north country.
  • 9. And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
  • 10. Take of {cf15I them of} the captivity, {cf15I even} of Heldai, of Tobijah, and of Jedaiah, which are come from Babylon, and come thou the same day, and go into the house of Josiah the son of Zephaniah;
  • 11. Then take silver and gold, and make crowns, and set {cf15I them} upon the head of Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest;
  • 12. And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name {cf15I is} The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD:
  • 13. Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.
  • 14. And 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.
  • 15. And they {cf15I that are} far off shall come and build in the temple of the LORD, and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you. And {cf15I this} shall come to pass, if ye will diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God.
