Zechariah 4:1 And the angel that talked with me came again, and waked me, as a man that is wakened out of his sleep, 2 And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof: 3 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.
In verse 1 of chapter 4, Zechariah is seeing a vision. He is put into a trance or dream, (or however God does this).
In verse 2, six out of the seven translations I checked translated “candlestick” as “lampstand.” Only the King James translates this word as “candlestick.”
What is the bowl on the top of the lampstand with the seven pipes to the seven lamps?
