Zechariah 3:1-5 New International Version

The Prophet's Vision of Joshua the High Priest

3 1  Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan[1] standing at his right side to accuse him. 2  The Lord said to Satan, "The Lord rebuke you, Satan! The Lord, who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you! Is not this man a burning stick snatched from the fire?" 3  Now Joshua was dressed in filthy clothes as he stood before the angel. 4  The angel said to those who were standing before him, "Take off his filthy clothes." Then he said to Joshua, "See, I have taken away your sin, and I will put fine garments on you." 5  Then I said, "Put a clean turban on his head." So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him, while the angel of the Lord stood by.
