Under the type of Joshua, the restoration of the Church,
Zechariah 3:1 And he shewed me Iesua ye hye prest, stondinge before the angel of the LORDE, and Satan stode at his right honde to resiste him. Zechariah 3:2 And the LORDE sayde vnto Satan: The LORDE reproue the (thou Satan) yee the LORDE that hath chosen Ierusalem, reproue the. Is not this a brande take out of the fyre? Zechariah 3:3 Now Iesua was clothed in vnclene rayment, and stode before the angel: Zechariah 3:4 which answered & sayde vnto those, yt stode before him: take awaye ye foule clothes from him. And vnto him he sayde: Beholde, I haue take awaye thy synne from the, & wil decke the with chaunge of raymet. Zechariah 3:5 He sayde morouer: set a fayre myter vpon his heade. So they set a fayre myter vpon his heade, & put on clothes vpon him, and the angel of ye LORDE stode there. Zechariah 3:6 Then the angel of the LORDE testified vnto Iesua, & spake, Zechariah 3:7 thus sayeth the LORDE of hoostes: Yf thou wilt walke in my wayes, & kepe my watch: thou shalt rule my house, & kepe my courtes, & I wil geue the place amoge these that stonde here.
Christ the Branch is promised.
Zechariah 3:8 Heare o Iesua thou hye prest, thou & thy frendes that dwell before the, for they are woderous people. Beholde, I will bringe forth the braunch of my seruaunt: Zechariah 3:9 for lo, the stone that I haue layed before Iesua: vpon one stone shalbe vij. eyes. Beholde, I will hewe him out (saieth the LORDE of hoostes) and take awaye the synne of that londe in one daye. Zechariah 3:10 Then shall euery man call for his neghboure, vnder the vyne & vnder ye fyge tre, saieth the LORDE of hoostes.
