Zechariah 6 (WEBP)

[1] Again I lifted up my eyes, and saw, and behold, four chariots came out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of bronze.
[2] In the first chariot were red horses. In the second chariot were black horses.
[3] In the third chariot were white horses. In the fourth chariot were dappled horses, all of them powerful.
[4] Then I asked the angel who talked with me, “What are these, my lord?”
[5] The angel answered me, “These are the four winds of the sky, which go out from standing before the Lord of all the earth.
[6] The one with the black horses goes out toward the north country; and the white went out after them; and the dappled went out toward the south country.”
[7] The strong went out, and sought to go that they might walk back and forth through the earth. He said, “Go around and through the earth!” So they walked back and forth through the earth.
[8] Then he called to me, and spoke to me, saying, “Behold, those who go toward the north country have quieted my spirit in the north country.”
[9] Yahweh’s word came to me, saying,
[10] “Take of them of the captivity, even of Heldai, of Tobijah, and of Jedaiah; and come the same day, and go into the house of Josiah the son of Zephaniah, where they have come from Babylon.
[11] Yes, take silver and gold, and make crowns, and set them on the head of Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest;
[12] and speak to him, saying, ‘Yahweh of Armies says, “Behold, the man whose name is the Branch! He will grow up out of his place; and he will build Yahweh’s temple.
[13] He will build Yahweh’s temple. He will bear the glory, and will sit and rule on his throne. He will be a priest on his throne. The counsel of peace will be between them both.
[14] The crowns shall be to Helem, to Tobijah, to Jedaiah, and to Hen the son of Zephaniah, for a memorial in Yahweh’s temple.
[15] Those who are far off shall come and build in Yahweh’s temple; and you shall know that Yahweh of Armies has sent me to you. This will happen, if you will diligently obey Yahweh your God’s voice.” ’ ”§

Zechariah 6:15 The Hebrew word rendered “God” is “אֱלֹהִ֑ים” (Elohim).

Zechariah 6 (KJVS)

[1] And I turned H7725 (8799), and lifted up H5375 (8799) mine eyes H5869, and looked H7200 (8799), and, behold, there came H3318 four H702 chariots H4818 out H3318 (8802) from between two H8147 mountains H2022; and the mountains H2022 [were] mountains H2022 of brass H5178.
[2] In the first H7223 chariot H4818 [were] red H122 horses H5483; and in the second H8145 chariot H4818 black H7838 horses H5483;
[3] And in the third H7992 chariot H4818 white H3836 horses H5483; and in the fourth H7243 chariot H4818 grisled H1261 and bay H554 horses H5483.
[4] Then I answered H6030 (8799) and said H559 (8799) unto the angel H4397 that talked H1696 (8802) with me, What [are] these, my lord H113?
[5] And the angel H4397 answered H6030 (8799) and said H559 (8799) unto me, These [are] the four H702 spirits H7307 of the heavens H8064, which go forth H3318 (8802) from standing H3320 (8692) before the Lord H113 of all the earth H776.
[6] The black H7838 horses H5483 which [are] therein go forth H3318 (8802) into the north H6828 country H776; and the white H3836 go forth H3318 (8804) after H310 them; and the grisled H1261 go forth H3318 (8804) toward the south H8486 country H776.
[7] And the bay H554 went forth H3318 (8804), and sought H1245 (8762) to go H3212 (8800) that they might walk to and fro H1980 (8692) through the earth H776: and he said H559 (8799), Get you hence H3212 (8798), walk to and fro H1980 (8690) through the earth H776. So they walked to and fro H1980 (8691) through the earth H776.
[8] Then cried H2199 (8686) he upon H853 me, and spake H1696 (8762) unto me, saying H559 (8800), Behold H7200 (8798), these that go H3318 (8802) toward the north H6828 country H776 have quieted H5117 (8689) my spirit H7307 in the north H6828 country H776.
[9] And the word H1697 of the LORD H3068 came unto me, saying H559 (8800),
[10] Take H3947 (8800) of [them of] the captivity H1473, [even] of Heldai H2469, of Tobijah H2900, and of Jedaiah H3048, which are come H935 (8804) from Babylon H894, and come H935 (8804) thou the same day H3117, and go H935 (8804) into the house H1004 of Josiah H2977 the son H1121 of Zephaniah H6846;
[11] Then take H3947 (8804) silver H3701 and gold H2091, and make H6213 (8804) crowns H5850, and set H7760 (8804) [them] upon the head H7218 of Joshua H3091 the son H1121 of Josedech H3087, the high H1419 priest H3548;
[12] And speak H559 (8804) unto him, saying H559 (8800), Thus speaketh H559 (8804) the LORD H3068 of hosts H6635, saying H559 (8800), Behold the man H376 whose name H8034 [is] The BRANCH H6780; and he shall grow up H6779 (8799) out of his place, and he shall build H1129 (8804) the temple H1964 of the LORD H3068:
[13] Even he shall build H1129 (8799) the temple H1964 of the LORD H3068; and he shall bear H5375 (8799) the glory H1935, and shall sit H3427 (8804) and rule H4910 (8804) upon his throne H3678; and he shall be a priest H3548 upon his throne H3678: and the counsel H6098 of peace H7965 shall be between them both H8147.
[14] And the crowns H5850 shall be to Helem H2494, and to Tobijah H2900, and to Jedaiah H3048, and to Hen H2581 the son H1121 of Zephaniah H6846, for a memorial H2146 in the temple H1964 of the LORD H3068.
[15] And they [that are] far off H7350 shall come H935 (8799) and build H1129 (8804) in the temple H1964 of the LORD H3068, and ye shall know H3045 (8804) that the LORD H3068 of hosts H6635 hath sent H7971 (8804) me unto you. And [this] shall come to pass, if ye will diligently H8085 (8800) obey H8085 (8799) the voice H6963 of the LORD H3068 your God H430.

Young’s Literal Translation

Zechariah 6 (YLT)

[1] And I turn back, and lift up mine eyes, and look, and lo, four chariots are coming forth from between two of the mountains, and the mountains are mountains of brass.
[2] In the first chariot are red horses, and in the second chariot brown horses,
[3] and in the third chariot white horses, and in the fourth chariot strong grisled horses.
[4] And I answer and say unto the messenger who is speaking with me, ‘What are these, my lord?’
[5] And the messenger answereth and saith unto me, ‘These are four spirits of the heavens coming forth from presenting themselves before the Lord of the whole earth.
[6] The brown horses that are therein, are coming forth unto the land of the north; and the white have come forth unto their hinder part; and the grisled have come forth unto the land of the south;
[7] and the strong ones have come forth, and they seek to go to walk up and down in the earth;’ and he saith, ‘Go, walk up and down in the earth;’ and they walk up and down in the earth.
[8] And he calleth me, and speaketh unto me, saying, ‘See, those coming forth unto the land of the north have caused My Spirit to rest in the land of the north.’
[9] And there is a word of Jehovah unto me, saying,
[10] to take of the captivity (who came from Babylon) from Heldai, from Tobijah, and from Jedaiah, ‘and thou hast come in-thou, in that day, yea, thou hast come into the house of Josiah son of Zephaniah,
[11] and thou hast taken silver and gold, and hast made a crown, and hast placed on the head of Joshua son of Josedech, the high priest,
[12] and hast spoken unto him, saying: Thus spake Jehovah of Hosts, saying: Lo, a man! A Shoot-is his name, And from his place he doth shoot up, And he hath built the temple of Jehovah.
[13] Yea, he doth build the temple of Jehovah, And he doth bear away honour, And he hath sat and ruled on His throne, And hath been a priest on His throne, And a counsel of peace is between both.
[14] And the crown is to Helem, and to Tobijah, and to Jedaiah, and to Hen son of Zephaniah, for a memorial in the temple of Jehovah.
[15] And the far-off come in, and they have built in the temple of Jehovah, and ye have known that Jehovah of Hosts hath sent me unto you, yea, it hath come to pass, if ye do certainly hearken to the voice of Jehovah your God.’
