Zechariah 4:2-6 Living Bible (TLB)

“What do you see now?” he asked.

I answered, “I see a gold lampstand holding seven lamps, and at the top there is a reservoir for the olive oil that feeds the lamps, flowing into them through seven tubes. And I see two olive trees carved upon the lampstand, one on each side of the reservoir. What is it, sir?” I asked. “What does this mean?”

“Don’t you really know?” the angel asked.

“No, sir,” I said, “I don’t.”

Then he said, “This is God’s message to Zerubbabel:[a] ‘Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord Almighty—you will succeed because of my Spirit, though you are few and weak.’


  1. Zechariah 4:6 to Zerubbabel, Governor of Judah, who was given the responsibility for rebuilding the Temple. See Haggai 1:1; 2:23, etc.
