The Vision of the Four Chariots; The Symbolic Crowns of Joshua

Again I lifted up my eyes, and saw, and behold, four chariots came out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass. +
In the first chariot were red horses; in the second chariot black horses; +
in the third chariot white horses; and in the fourth chariot dappled horses, all of them powerful. +
Then I asked the angel who talked with me, "What are these, my lord?" +
The angel answered me, "These are the four winds of the sky, which go out from standing before the Lord of all the earth. +
The one with the black horses goes out toward the north country; and the white went out after them; and the dappled went out toward the south country." +
The strong went out, and sought to go that they might walk back and forth through the earth: and he said, "Go around and through the earth!" So they walked back and forth through the earth. +
Then he called to me, and spoke to me, saying, "Behold, those who go toward the north country have quieted my spirit in the north country." +
The LORD's word came to me, saying, +
"Take of them of the captivity, even of Heldai, of Tobijah, and of Jedaiah; and come the same day, and go into the house of Josiah the son of Zephaniah, where they have come from Babylon. +
Yes, take silver and gold, and make crowns, and set them on the head of Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest; +
and speak to him, saying, 'The LORD of Armies says, "Behold, the man whose name is the Branch: and he shall grow up out of his place; and he shall build The LORD's temple; +
even he shall build The LORD's temple; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule on his throne; and he shall be a priest on his throne; and the counsel of peace shall be between them both. +
The crowns shall be to Helem, and to Tobijah, and to Jedaiah, and to Hen the son of Zephaniah, for a memorial in The LORD's temple. +
Those who are far off shall come and build in The LORD's temple; and you shall know that the LORD of Hosts has sent me to you. This will happen, if you will diligently obey the LORD your God's voice."'" +
