Abstract Zechariah's first vision (Zech 1,8-17) and its portrayal of angelic beings offer important criteria for determining earlier shapes of the cycle of the night visions. At a primary level, the first night vision consisted of a question-answer communication between the prophet and a celestial messenger designated איש (1,8.9a.10.11b). At the next stage the angelus interpres had been added, partly absorbing the function of the איש (1,9b.14), before the angel of Yhwh was inserted (1,11a.12-13). Based on the result that the earliest version of Zech 1,8-17 did not know of an angelus interpres the other night visions are analyzed.
