Zechariah 4:1-13
1. And the angel that talked with me came again, and waked me, as a man that is wakened out of his sleep.
2. And he said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I see, and behold, a lamp-stand all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and its seven lamps thereon, seven [lamps] and seven pipes to the lamps, which are upon the top thereof;
3. and two olive-trees beside it, one on the right of the bowl, and the other on the left of it.
4. And I answered and spoke to the angel that talked with me, saying, What are these, my lord?
5. And the angel that talked with me answered and said unto me, Knowest thou not what these are? And I said, No, my lord.
6. And he answered and spoke unto me, saying, This is the word of Jehovah unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith Jehovah of hosts.
7. Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel [thou dost become] a plain; and he shall bring forth the head-stone with shoutings: Grace, grace unto it!
8. And the word of Jehovah came unto me, saying,
9. The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; and his hands shall finish it: and thou shalt know that Jehovah of hosts hath sent me unto you.
10. For who hath despised the day of small things? Yea, they shall rejoice [even] those seven and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel: these are the eyes of Jehovah, which run to and fro in the whole earth.
11. And I answered and said unto him, What are these two olive-trees on the right of the lamp-stand and on its left?
12. And I answered the second time and said unto him, What are the two olive-branches which are beside the two golden tubes that empty the gold out of themselves?
13. And he spoke to me, saying, Knowest thou not what these are? And I said, No, my lord.

Zechariah 5:1-11
1. And I lifted up mine eyes again, and saw, and behold, a flying roll.
2. And he said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I see a flying roll: the length thereof is twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten cubits.
3. And he said unto me, This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole land: for every one that stealeth shall be cut off according to it on this side; and every one that sweareth shall be cut off according to it on that side.
4. I will cause it to go forth, saith Jehovah of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that sweareth falsely by my name; and it shall lodge in the midst of his house, and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof.
5. And the angel that talked with me went forth, and said unto me, Lift up now thine eyes, and see what is this that goeth forth.
6. And I said, What is it? And he said, This is the ephah that goeth forth. And he said, This is their resemblance in all the land.
7. And behold, there was lifted up a round plate of lead; and this is a woman that sitteth in the midst of the ephah.
8. And he said, This is Wickedness: and he cast her into the midst of the ephah; and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof.
9. And I lifted up mine eyes, and saw, and behold, there came out two women, and the wind was in their wings; and they had wings like the wings of a stork; and they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heavens.
10. And I said to the angel that talked with me, Whither do these carry the ephah?
11. And he said unto me, To build it a house in the land of Shinar; and it shall be established, and set there upon its own base.

Zechariah 6:1-15
1. And I lifted up mine eyes again, and saw, and behold, there came four chariots out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass.
2. In the first chariot were red horses; and in the second chariot black horses;
3. and in the third chariot white horses; and in the fourth chariot grisled, strong horses.
4. And I spoke and said unto the angel that talked with me, What are these, my lord?
5. And the angel answered and said unto me, These are the four spirits of the heavens, which go forth from standing before the Lord of all the earth.
6. That in which are the black horses goeth forth into the north country; and the white go forth after them; and the grisled go forth towards the south country;
7. and the strong go forth, and seek to go that they may walk to and fro through the earth. And he said, Go, walk to and fro through the earth. And they walked to and fro through the earth.
8. And he cried unto me, and spoke unto me, saying, See, these that go forth towards the north country have quieted my spirit in the north country.
9. And the word of Jehovah came unto me, saying,
10. Take [gifts] of them of the captivity, of Heldai, of Tobijah, and of Jedaiah, and come thou the same day, and enter into the house of Josiah the son of Zephaniah, whither they are come from Babylon;
11. yea, take silver and gold, and make crowns, and set [them] upon the head of Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest;
12. and speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh Jehovah of hosts, saying, Behold a man whose name is [the] Branch; and he shall grow up from his own place, and he shall build the temple of Jehovah:
13. even he shall build the temple of Jehovah; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne; and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.
14. And the crowns shall be for Helem, and for Tobijah, and for Jedaiah, and for Hen the son of Zephaniah, for a memorial in the temple of Jehovah.
15. And they that are far off shall come and build at the temple of Jehovah: and ye shall know that Jehovah of hosts hath sent me unto you. And [this] shall come to pass, if ye will diligently hearken to the voice of Jehovah your God.

Psalms 148:1-6
1. Hallelujah! Praise Jehovah from the heavens; praise him in the heights.
2. Praise ye him, all his angels; praise ye him, all his hosts.
3. Praise him, sun and moon; praise him, all ye stars of light.
4. Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that are above the heavens.
5. Let them praise the name of Jehovah, for he it is that commanded, and they were created:
6. And he established them for ever and ever; he made [for them] a statute which shall not pass.

Proverbs 30:24-28
24. There are four [things] little upon the earth, and they are exceeding wise:
25. The ants, a people not strong, yet they provide their food in the summer;
26. the rock-badgers are but a feeble folk, yet they make their house in the cliff;
27. the locusts have no king, yet they go forth all of them by bands;
28. thou takest hold of the lizard with the hands, yet is she in kings' palaces.

Revelation 17:1-18
1. And one of the seven angels, which had the seven bowls, came and spoke with me, saying, Come here, I will shew thee the sentence of the great harlot who sits upon the many waters;
2. with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication; and they that dwell on the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
3. And he carried me away in spirit to a desert; and I saw a woman sitting upon a scarlet beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4. And the woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and had ornaments of gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and the unclean things of her fornication;
5. and upon her forehead a name written, Mystery, great Babylon, the mother of the harlots, and of the abominations of the earth.
6. And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. And I wondered, seeing her, with great wonder.
7. And the angel said to me, Why hast thou wondered? *I* will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast which carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns.
8. The beast which thou sawest was, and is not, and is about to come up out of the abyss and go into destruction: and they who dwell on the earth, whose names are not written from the founding of the world in the book of life, shall wonder, seeing the beast, that it was, and is not, and shall be present.
9. Here is the mind that has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains, whereon the woman sits.
10. And there are seven kings: five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; and when he comes he must remain [only] a little while.
11. And the beast that was and is not, he also is an eighth, and is of the seven, and goes into destruction.
12. And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have not yet received a kingdom, but receive authority as kings one hour with the beast.
13. These have one mind, and give their power and authority to the beast.
14. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them; for he is Lord of lords and King of kings: and they [that are] with him called, and chosen, and faithful.
15. And he says to me, The waters which thou sawest, where the harlot sits, are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues.
16. And the ten horns which thou sawest, and the beast, these shall hate the harlot, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and shall burn her with fire;
17. for God has given to their hearts to do his mind, and to act with one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
18. And the woman which thou sawest is the great city, which has kingship over the kings of the earth.
