11 Take the silver and gold, make (A)an[a] elaborate crown, and set it on the head of (B)Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest. 12 Then speak to him, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, saying:

“Behold, (C)the Man whose name is the (D)BRANCH!
From His place He shall [b]branch out,
(E)And He shall build the temple of the Lord;
13 Yes, He shall build the temple of the Lord.
He (F)shall bear the glory,
And shall sit and rule on His throne;
So (G)He shall be a priest on His throne,
And the counsel of peace shall be between [c]them both.” ’
