And the angell that talked with me, came againe, and waked me, as a man that is raysed out of his sleepe,
And saide vnto me: what seest thou?
And I saide: I haue loked, and beholde, a candelsticke all of golde, with a boule vpon it, and his seuen lampes therein, & vpon euery lampe seuen pypes.
And two olyue trees thereby: one vpon the right side of the boule, & the other vpon the left side.
So I aunswered, and spake to the angell that talked with me, saying, O my Lorde, what are these?
The angell that talked with me aunswered and saide vnto me: Knowest thou not what these be?
And I said, No my Lorde.
He aunswered and saide vnto me: This is the worde of the Lorde vnto Zorobabel, saying, Neither through an hoast of men, nor through strength: but through my spirite, saith the Lorde of hoastes.
What art thou great mountaine before Zorobabel?
thou must be made euen, and he shall bring foorth the head stone therof, with showtinges, crying, Grace grace vnto it.
Moreouer, the word of the Lord came vnto me, saying:
The handes of Zorobabel haue layde the foundation of this house, his hands shal also finishe it: and thou shalt knowe that the Lorde of hoastes hath sent me vnto you.
For who hath despised the day of small thinges?
they shall reioyce, and shall see the stone of tynne in the hande of Zorobabel: these seuen are the eyes of the lord, which go through ye whole worlde.
Then aunswered I, & saide vnto him: What are these two olyue trees vpon the right & left side of the candelsticke?
I spake moreouer, and saide vnto him: What be these two olyue braunches which through the two golden pypes emptie them selues into the golde?
He aunswered me & said: Knowest thou not what these be?
& I said, no my lord.
Then said he: These are the two oliue braunches, that stand with the ruler of the whole earth.
