2 Zec 3:1-10 (NIV) The Cleansing for Joshua, the High Priest 1 Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the L ORD, and Satan standing at his right side to accuse him. 2 The L ORD said to Satan, “The L ORD rebuke you, Satan! The L ORD, who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you! Is not this man a burning stick snatched from the fire?” 3 Now Joshua was dressed in filthy clothes as he stood before the angel. 4 The angel said to those who were standing before him, “Take off his filthy clothes.” Then he said to Joshua, “See, I have taken away your sin, and I will put fine garments on you.”

3 Zec 3:1-10 (NIV) The Cleansing for Joshua, the High Priest 5 Then I said, “Put a clean turban on his head.” So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him, while the angel of the L ORD stood by. 6 The angel of the L ORD gave this charge to Joshua: 7 “This is what the L ORD Almighty says: ‘If you will walk in obedience to me and keep my requirements, then you will govern my house and have charge of my courts, and I will give you a place among these standing here. 8 “ ‘Listen, High Priest Joshua, you and your associates seated before you, who are men symbolic of things to come: I am going to bring my servant, the Branch.

4 Zec 3:1-10 (NIV) The Cleansing for Joshua, the High Priest 9 See, the stone I have set in front of Joshua! There are seven eyes on that one stone, and I will engrave an inscription on it,’ says the L ORD Almighty, ‘and I will remove the sin of this land in a single day. 10 “ ‘In that day each of you will invite your neighbor to sit under your vine and fig tree,’ declares the L ORD Almighty.”
