Zechariah 4:1-7; The vision of the golden lampstand and olive trees as the source of spiritual life

The angel of the Lord calls Zechariah to a new vision. This vision of a golden lampstand and olive trees symbolizes the message to be delivered to Zerubbabel regarding the strength and sustenance for the building of their new ministry. Strength for faithful living be it interpersonal or public ministry comes from the Lord “not by might or power but by My Spirit” says the Lord. What an awesome reminder. See the link below for the original and LXX and English translation of this passage. Verse 6b is where this phrase is found and the possessive “My Spirit” is central…
“בְּרוּחִ֔י”
