Yahweh and Satan (Zech 3:2-3:2)

“Yahweh said

To Satan.

‘Yahweh rebukes you!

O Satan!

Yahweh,

Who has chosen Jerusalem,

Rebukes you!

Is not this man

A brand

Plucked from the fire?’”

Yahweh then had a conversation with the adversarial Satan.  Yahweh was rebuking him.  Yahweh had chosen Jerusalem.  Yet he still was going to rebuke Satan.  Then he asked if this man Joshua was a hot brand from the fire.  He wanted to know if Joshua was the representative of the Israelites of Jerusalem or from Satan.
