Zechariah 5:1

Context
Vision Six: The Flying Scroll

5:1 Then I turned to look, and there was a flying scroll!

Zechariah 6:14

Context
6:14 The crown will then be turned over to Helem, 1  Tobijah, Jedaiah, and Hen 2  son of Zephaniah as a memorial in the temple of the Lord.

1 tn “Helem” is probably the same individual as “Heldai” in v. 10. Since the MT and the major ancient versions leave the apparent conflict unresolved it is probably best to view “Helem” as interchangeable with “Heldai” (cf. “Heled” in 1 Chr 11:30 with “Heleb” [2 Sam 23:29] and “Heldai” [1 Chr 27:15]). A number of modern English versions use “Heldai” here (e.g., NAB, NIV, NRSV, TEV, NLT).

2 tn Since the “son of Zephaniah” in v. 10 is Josiah, it might be best here to understand “Hen” in its meaning “grace” (חֵן, khen); that is, “Hen” is a nickname for Josiah – “the gracious one.” A number of modern English translations use “Josiah” here (e.g., NCV, NRSV, NLT).
