Clean Garments for the High Priest...
And he showed me Yehoshua the high priest standing before the messenger of YHWH, and Satan standing at his right hand to be an adversary to him.
And YHWH said to Satan, ` YHWH rebuke you, Satan! YHWH who has chosen Yerushalayim rebuke you! Is this not a brand plucked from the fire?`
And Yehoshua was dressed in filthy garments, and was standing before the messenger.
And He answered and spoke to those who stood before Him, saying, 'Remove the filthy garments from him.' And to him He said, 'See, I have removed your guilt from you, and shall put costly robes on you.'
And I said, 'Let them put a clean turban on his head.' Then they put a clean turban on his head, and they put garments on him. And the messenger of YHWH stood by.
And the messenger of YHWH witnessed to Yehoshua, saying,
'Thus said YHWH of hosts, 'If you walk in My ways, and if you guard My duty, then you shall also rule My house, and also guard My courts. And I shall give you access among these standing here.
'Now listen, Yehoshua the high priest, you and your companions who sit before you, for they are men of symbol. For look, I am bringing forth My Servant - the Branch.
'See the stone which I have put before Yehoshua: on one stone are seven eyes. See, I am engraving its inscription,' declares YHWH of hosts, 'and I shall remove the guilt of that land in one day.
'In that day,' declares YHWH of hosts, 'you shall invite one another, under the vine and under the fig tree.''
