day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of thee. and thou shalt know that the Lord of hosts hath sent me 'unto' thee; and the Lord shall inherit Judah his portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again. Be silent, О all flesh, before the Lord : for he is raised up out of his holy habitation. And he shewed me Joshua the high priest, standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him. And the Lord said unto Satan, the Lord rebuke, thee, O Satan, even the Lord that hath chosen Jerusalem, rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire? now Joshua' was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the angel. And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment.' And I said, let them set a fair mitre upon his head: so they set à fair mitre upon his head, and clothed him with garments; and the angel of the Lord stood by. ' And the angel of the Lord protested unto Joshua, saying, thuş saith the Lord of hosts, if thou wilt walk in my ways, and if thou 'wilt keep my charge, then thou shalt also judge my house, and shalt also keep my courts, and I will give thee places to walk among these that stand by. 'Hear now, 0 Joshua, the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for behold, I will bring forth my servant the BRANCH. For behold, the stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one stone shall be seven eyès: behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith the Lord of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day. In that day, saith the Lord of hosts, shall ye call every man his neighbour under the vine, and under the fig-tree. And the angel that talked with me, came again and waked me, as a man that is .wakened out of his sleep, and said unto me, what seest thou ? and I said, I have looked, and behold, a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his . seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which were upon the top thereof: and two olive-trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof. So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with me, saying, what are these, my lord ? then the angel that talked with me answered,

This was the dedication of the altar (in the day when it was anointed) by the princes of Israel : twelve chargers of silver, twelve silver bowls, twelve spoons of gold : each charger of silver weighing an hundred and thirty shekels, each bowl seventy: all the silver vessels weighed two thousand and four hundred shekels after the shekel of the sanctuary. The golden spoons were twelve, full of incense, weighing ten shekels a piece, after the shekel of the sanctuary: all the gold of the spoons, was an hundred and twenty shekels. 'All the oxen for the burnt-offering were twelve bullocks, the rams twelve, the lambs of the first year twelve, with their meat-offering: and the kids of the goats for sin-offering, twelve, and all the oxen for the sacrifice of the peace-offerings, were twenty and four bullocks, the rams sixty, the he-goats sixty, the lambs of the first year sixty. This was the dedication of the altar, after that it was anointed. And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the congregation, to speak with him; then he heard the voice of one speaking unto him' from off the mercy-seat that was upon the ark of testimony, from between the two cherubims: and he spake unto him..

And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, speak 'unto - Aarolt and say unto him, when thou" lightest the lamps, the seven lamps kadall give light over against the candlesticki And Aaron did so; he lighted the lamps thereof over against the candlestick; as the Lord commanded Moses. And this work of the candlestick was of beaten gold, unto the shaft thereof, unto the flowers thereof was beaten work : according unto the pattern which the Lord had shewed Moses, so he made the candlestick.
