Zechariah 5-6

Chapter 5: An angel reveals truths

Zechariah has a vision of a “…flying roll [scroll].” (Zechariah 5:2) twenty cubits by ten. On it are written curses against thieves and people who swear falsely [Perjurer’s]. Wickedness is described as a woman sitting in an ephah (which is most likely a basket seeing as it was an ancient form of measurement approximately 33 liters). An angel thrusts down the woman, and places a lead covering over the top of the “basket”. Two winged women take the basket to Babylon.

Chapter 6: Christ will sit on His Throne

Zechariah has a vision of four chariots coming between two mountains of bronze.

  • Chariot #1: “…red horses…” (Zechariah 6:2)
  • Chariot #2: “…black horses;” (Zechariah 6:2)
  • Chariot #3: “…white horses;” (Zechariah 6:3)
  • Chariot #4: “…grisled [grey or partly grey hair] and bay [reddish brown body color with a black mane, tail, ear edges, and lower legs] horses.” (Zechariah 6:3)

The chariots go before the Lord. Those who go toward the North Country have been or will be given rest. Joshua receives a crown of gold and silver. The BRANCH shall build the temple of the Lord.
