10 For who has despised the day of (A)small things?
For these seven rejoice to see
The [a]plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel.
(B)They are the eyes of the Lord,

11 Then I answered and said to him, “What are these (C)two olive trees—at the right of the lampstand and at its left?” 12 And I further answered and said to him, “What are these two olive branches that drip [b]into the receptacles of the two gold pipes from which the golden oil drains?”

13 Then he answered me and said, “Do you not know what these are?

And I said, “No, my lord.”

14 So he said, (D)“These are the two [c]anointed ones, (E)who stand beside the Lord of the whole earth.”
