The vision of the High-priest.  Zch.3.1-10

1Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, with the Adversary Heb the Satan standing at his right hand to accuse him. 2The LORD said to the Adversary, 'The LORD rebuke you, Satan, the LORD rebuke you who are venting your spite on Jerusalem the LORD ... Jerusalem: or the LORD who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you. Is not this man a brand snatched from the fire?' 3Now Joshua was wearing filthy clothes as he stood before the angel; 4and the angel turned and said to those in attendance on him, 'Take off his filthy clothes.' Then he turned to him and said, 'See how I have taken away your guilt from you; I will clothe you in fine vestments'; 5and he added, 'Let a clean turban be put on his head.' So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him in clean garments, while the angel of the LORD stood by. 6Then the angel of the LORD gave Joshua this solemn charge: 7These are the words of the LORD of Hosts: If you will conform to my ways and carry out your duties, you shall administer my house and be in control of my courts, and I grant you the right to come and go amongst these in attendance here. 8Listen, Joshua the high priest, you and your colleagues seated here before you, all you who are an omen of things to come: I will now bring my servant, the Branch. 9 (9-10) In one day I will wipe away the guilt of the land. On that day, says the LORD of Hosts, you shall all of you invite one another to come and sit each under his vine and his fig-tree.

Here is the stone that I set before Joshua, a stone in which are seven eyes. I will reveal its meaning to you, says the LORD of Hosts.
