I said, “I have seen, and behold, a lamp stand all of gold, with its bowl on the top of it, and its seven lamps on it; there are seven pipes to each of the lamps, which are on the top of it; and two olive trees by it, one on the right side of the bowl, and the other on the left side of it.”
Zechariah 4 [4.] I answered and spoke to the angel who talked with me, saying, “What are these, my lord?”
Zechariah 4 [5.] Then the angel who talked with me answered me, “Don’t you know what these are?”

Zechariah 4 [6.] Then he answered and spoke to me, saying, “This is Yahweh’s word to Zerubbabel, saying, ‘Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says Yahweh of Armies.

Zechariah 4 [8.] Moreover Yahweh’s word came to me, saying, “The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house.

For these seven shall rejoice, and shall see the plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel. These are Yahweh’s eyes, which run back and forth through the whole earth.”
