The vision of the horses (Zec 1:7-17), teaching God's special care for and interest in his people: "My
house shall be built" (Zec 1:16). (ii) The four horns and four smiths (Zec 1:18-21), teaching that Israel's
foes have finally been destroyed; in fact that they have destroyed themselves. There is no longer,
therefore, any opposition to building God's house. (iii) The man with a measuring line (Zec 2:1-13),
teaching that God will re-people, protect and dwell in Jerusalem as soon as the sacred edifice has been
built. The city itself will expand till it becomes a great metropolis without walls; Yahweh will be a wall of
fire round about it. (iv) Joshua, the high priest, clad in filthy garments, and bearing the sins both of
himself and the people (Zec 3:1-10); but cleansed, continued and made typical of the Messiah-Branch to
come. (v) The candelabrum and the two olive trees (Zec 4:1-14), teaching that the visible must give
place to the spiritual, and that, through "the two sons of oil," Zerubbabel the layman, and Joshua the
priest (Zec 4:14), the light of God's church will continue to burn with ever-flaming brightness. For it is
"not by might" but by Yahweh's Spirit, i.e. by divine life and animation, by divine vigor and vivacity, by
divine disposition and courage, by divine executive ability and technical skill, that God's house shall be
built and supplied with spiritual life (Zec 4:6). (vi) The flying roll (Zec 5:1-4), teaching that when the
temple is built and God's law is taught the land shall be purified from outward wickedness. (vii) The
Ephah (Zec 5:5-11); wickedness personified is borne away back to the land of Shinar, teaching that when
the temple is rebuilt wickedness shall be actually removed from the land. (viii) The four chariots (Zec 6:1-
8), teaching that God's protecting providence will be over His sanctuary, and that His people, purified
from sin, shall rest secure in Him.
