10 Take of them of the captivity, even of Heldai, and of Tobijah, and Jedaiah, which are come from Babel, and come thou the same day, and go unto the house of [a]Josiah, the son of Zephaniah.

11 Take even silver, and gold, and make crowns, and set them upon the [b]head of Joshua, the son of Jehozadak the high Priest,

12 And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, and saith, Behold, the man whose name is the [c]Branch, and he shall grow [d]up out of his place, and he shall [e]build the Temple of the Lord.
