Zechariah 6:11-12 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

11 You will take silver and gold, and make crowns;[a] place one on the head of Joshua, son of Jehozadak, the high priest. 12 And say to him: Thus says the Lord of hosts: There is a man whose name is Branch[b]—and from his place he will branch out and he will build the temple of the Lord.

Footnotes:

  1. 6:11 Crowns: two crowns made of precious metals and representing two high offices (compare the symbolism of the two olive trees in 4:14). One crown is for the high priest Joshua, who, with the governor Zerubbabel, was one of the recognized rulers of the Persian province of Judah. The other crown would have been for a royal ruler, a Davidic descendant. Zerubbabel was a Davidide but could not be king because the Persians would not allow such autonomy. The second crown was thus put in storage in the Temple (v. 14) for the crowning of a future king, or “branch” (see 3:8), from the house of David.
  2. 6:12 Branch: future Davidic ruler. See note on 3:8.
