Zechariah ౪:౧-౧౩
౧. The angel who was speaking with me then returned and roused me as one awakened out of sleep.
౨. He asked me, "What do you see?" I replied, "I see a solid gold lampstand there with a bowl on its top. It has seven lamps on it and seven channels for each of the lamps on its top.
౩. There are also two olive trees beside it, one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left."
౪. Then I asked the angel who was speaking with me, "What are these, my lord?"
౫. "Don't you know what they are?" replied the angel who was speaking with me. I said, "No, my lord."
౬. So he answered me, "This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: 'Not by strength or by might, but by My Spirit,' says the LORD of Hosts.
౭. 'What are you, great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain. And he will bring out the capstone accompanied by shouts of: Grace, grace to it!'"
౮. Then the word of the LORD came to me:
౯. "Zerubbabel's hands have laid the foundation of this house, and his hands will complete it. Then you will know that the LORD of Hosts has sent me to you.
౧౦. For who scorns the day of small things? These seven eyes of the LORD, which scan throughout the whole earth, will rejoice when they see the plumb line in Zerubbabel's hand."
౧౧. I asked him, "What are the two olive trees on the right and left of the lampstand?"
౧౨. And I questioned him further, "What are the two olive branches beside the two gold conduits, from which golden [oil] pours out?"
౧౩. Then he inquired of me, "Don't you know what these are?" "No, my lord," I replied.

Zechariah ౫:౧-౧౧
౧. I looked up again and saw a flying scroll.
౨. "What do you see?" he asked me. "I see a flying scroll," I replied, "30 feet long and 15 feet wide."
౩. Then he said to me, "This is the curse that is going out over the whole land, for every thief will be removed according to what is written on one side, and everyone who swears [falsely] will be removed according to what is written on the other side.
౪. I will send it out,"-- the declaration of the LORD of Hosts-- "and it will enter the house of the thief and the house of the one who swears falsely by My name. It will stay inside his house and destroy it along with its timbers and stones."
౫. Then the angel who was speaking with me came forward and told me, "Look up and see what this is that is approaching."
౬. So I asked, "What is it?" He responded, "It's a measuring basket that is approaching." And he continued, "This is their iniquity in all the land."
౭. Then a lead cover was lifted, and there was a woman sitting inside the basket.
౮. "This is Wickedness," he said. He shoved her down into the basket and pushed the lead weight over its opening.
౯. Then I looked up and saw two women approaching with the wind in their wings. Their wings were like those of a stork, and they lifted up the basket between earth and sky.
౧౦. So I asked the angel who was speaking with me, "Where are they taking the basket?"
౧౧. "To build a shrine for it in the land of Shinar," he told me. "When that is ready, [the basket] will be placed there on its pedestal."

Zechariah ౬:౧-౧౫
౧. Then I looked up again and saw four chariots coming from between two mountains. And the mountains were made of bronze.
౨. The first chariot had red horses, the second chariot black horses,
౩. the third chariot white horses, and the fourth chariot dappled horses-- [all] strong horses.
౪. So I inquired of the angel who was speaking with me, "What are these, my lord?"
౫. The angel told me, "These are the four spiritsof heaven going out after presenting themselves to the Lord of the whole earth.
౬. The one with the black horses is going to the land of the north, the white horses are going after them, but the dappled horses are going to the land of the south."
౭. As the strong horses went out, they wanted to go patrol the earth, and the LORD said, "Go, patrol the earth." So they patrolled the earth.
౮. Then He summoned me saying, "See, those going to the land of the north have pacified My Spirit in the northern land."
౯. The word of the LORD came to me:
౧౦. "Take [an offering] from the exiles, from Heldai, Tobijah, and Jedaiah, who have arrived from Babylon, and go that same day to the house of Josiah son of Zephaniah.
౧౧. Take silver and gold, make crowns and place them on the head of Joshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest.
౧౨. You are to tell him: This is what the LORD of Hosts says: Here is a man whose name is Branch; He will branch out from His place and build the LORD's temple.
౧౩. Yes, He will build the LORD's temple; He will be clothed in splendor and will sit on His throne and rule. There will also be a priest on His throne, and there will be peaceful counsel between the two of them.
౧౪. The crown will reside in the LORD's temple as a memorial to Heldai, Tobijah, Jedaiah, and Hen son of Zephaniah.
౧౫. People who are far off will come and build the LORD's temple, and you will know that the LORD of Hosts has sent Me to you. This will happen when you fully obey the LORD your God."

Psalms ౧౪౮:౧-౬
౧. Hallelujah! Praise the LORD from the heavens; praise Him in the heights.
౨. Praise Him, all His angels; praise Him, all His hosts.
౩. Praise Him, sun and moon; praise Him, all you shining stars.
౪. Praise Him, highest heavens, and you waters above the heavens.
౫. Let them praise the name of the LORD, for He commanded, and they were created.
౬. He set them in position forever and ever; He gave an order that will never pass away.

Proverbs ౩౦:౨౪-౨౮
౨౪. Four things on earth are small, yet they are extremely wise:
౨౫. the ants are not a strong people, yet they store up their food in the summer;
౨౬. hyraxes are not a mighty people, yet they make their homes in the cliffs;
౨౭. locusts have no king, yet all of them march in ranks;
౨౮. a lizard can be caught in your hands, yet it lives in kings' palaces.

Revelation ౧౭:౧-౧౮
౧. Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and spoke with me: "Come, I will show you the judgment of the notorious prostitute who sits on many waters.
౨. The kings of the earth committed sexual immorality with her, and those who live on the earth became drunk on the wine of her sexual immorality."
౩. So he carried me away in the Spirit to a desert. I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names, having seven heads and 10 horns.
౪. The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, adorned with gold, precious stones, and pearls. She had a gold cup in her hand filled with everything vile and with the impurities of her prostitution.
౬. Then I saw that the woman was drunk on the blood of the saints and on the blood of the witnesses to Jesus. When I saw her, I was utterly astounded.
౭. Then the angel said to me, "Why are you astounded? I will tell you the secret meaning of the woman and of the beast, with the seven heads and the 10 horns, that carries her.
౮. The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to come up from the abyss and go to destruction. Those who live on the earth whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world will be astounded when they see the beast that was, and is not, and will be present [again].
౯. "Here is the mind with wisdom: the seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman is seated.
౧౦. They are also seven kings: five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come, and when he comes, he must remain for a little while.
౧౧. The beast that was and is not, is himself the eighth, yet is of the seven and goes to destruction.
౧౨. The 10 horns you saw are 10 kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they will receive authority as kings with the beast for one hour.
౧౩. These have one purpose, and they give their power and authority to the beast.
౧౪. These will make war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will conquer them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings. Those with him are called and elect and faithful."
౧౫. He also said to me, "The waters you saw, where the prostitute was seated, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and languages.
౧౬. The 10 horns you saw, and the beast, will hate the prostitute. They will make her desolate and naked, devour her flesh, and burn her up with fire.
౧౭. For God has put it into their hearts to carry out His plan by having one purpose, and to give their kingdom to the beast until God's words are accomplished.
౧౮. And the woman you saw is the great city that has an empire over the kings of the earth."
