3 And he proceeded to show me Joshua*+ the high priest standing before the angel* of Jehovah, and Satan*+ standing at his right hand in order to resist+ him. 2 Then [the angel+ of] Jehovah* said to Satan: “Jehovah rebuke+ you, O Satan, yes, Jehovah rebuke you, he who is choosing Jerusalem!+ Is this one not a log snatched out of the fire?”+ 3 Now as for Joshua, he happened to be clothed in befouled* garments+ and standing before the angel. 4 Then he answered and said to those standing before him: “Remove the befouled garments from upon him.” And he went on to say to him: “See, I have caused your error to pass away from upon you,+ and there is a clothing of you with robes of state.”+ 5 At that I said:* “Let them put a clean turban upon his head.”+ And they proceeded to put the clean turban upon his head and to clothe him with garments; and the angel of Jehovah* was standing by. 6 And the angel of Jehovah* began to bear witness to Joshua, saying: 7 “This is what Jehovah* of armies has said, ‘If it is in my ways that you will walk, and if it is my obligation that you will keep,+ then also it will be you that will judge my house+ and also keep my courtyards; and I shall certainly give you free access among these who are standing by.’ 8 “‘Hear, please, O Joshua the high priest, you and your companions who are sitting before you, for they are men* [serving] as portents;*+ for here I am bringing in my servant+ Sprout!*+ 9 For, look! the stone+ that I have put before Joshua! Upon the one stone there are seven eyes.*+ Here I am engraving its engraving,’+ is the utterance of Jehovah of armies, ‘and I will take away the error of that land in one day.’+ 10 “‘In that day,’ is the utterance of Jehovah of armies, ‘YOU will call, each one to the other, while under [the] vine and while under [the] fig tree.’”+
