Zechariah indicated that various people from far off places would return to help build the Temple of Yahweh. They would realize that Yahweh had sent him. All this new age would happen if they diligently obeyed the voice of Yahweh, their God.
Yahweh wanted the prophet Zechariah to take the gold and silver that the former exile captives had given him and make a crown out it. He was to set this crown on the head of the high priest Joshua, the son of Jehozadak. Perhaps this is a mistake and maybe it should be Governor Zerubbabel, since this ruler ends up with a priest by his side. This newly crowned person would be the branch that would spread out. He was the one who was going to build the temple of Yahweh. Thus, he would have a royal honor and sit on a throne ruling the people. However, they were still under Persian jurisdiction. Both the priest and this new ruler would get along peacefully.
God spoke directly to Ezekiel, the son of man. God wanted Ezekiel to look to the north, which he did. There at the entrance to the north gate altar was this image of jealousy. Then God asked Ezekiel to see what they were doing. They were committing great abominations that were driving God further from his sanctuary. They were profaning the Temple of Yahweh. However, God warned Ezekiel that he was going to see far worse and greater abominations.
This is exactly word for word like 2 Kings, chapter 25, but slightly different than the earlier chapter 39 description of Jeremiah. There was no mention about the burning of the Temple in the earlier Jeremiah description. Nebuzaradan, the captain of the guard of the Babylonian king, had his Chaldean fighters burn the Temple of Yahweh and the palace of the king, as well as all the great houses of Jerusalem. They also broke down all the walls around Jerusalem.
