    I appreciate the fact that this version actually uses the ITALICS, as in the original, to indicate words added by the translators that are not found in the original manuscript.
  • Paul Ramdat for verse 14
    I concur that the anointed ones are indeed Jesus our Lord and the Holy Spirit. Having read verse 14, I pondered for a while as to whom these would be. I thank our Lord for His Holy Spirit who revealed to me this same conclusion. OH! How I praise and glorify His Holy name.
  • Michael
    I think God have His own ways of doing things at His own time. Not by might, nor by power, "But By My Spirit " saith the Lord of hosts. 4:6b. God I Thank You For This Revelation, Help Me To Know You More In Jesus Name Amen.

    ZECHARIAH CHAPTER 4 1 12 15 7:12 I believed that the entire Chapter 4 was the vision of Zechariah about the candlesticks which have two olive trees standing in both sides which are the anointed ones. And he shall bring forth the headstone thereof. The candlestick that gives light and the headstone according to the BOOK OF PSALMS 118:22 that people refused Him. Thank to Almighty God that He gave his only begotten Son that SAVE us for our sins. In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. A-men.
