Zechariah 2

A Vision of a Man with a Measuring Line

Ch 2:5 in Hebrew
And I lifted my eyes and saw, and behold b  a man with a measuring line in his hand!
2Then I said, “Where are you going?” And he said to me, c  “To measure Jerusalem, to see what is its width and what is its length.” 3And behold, d  the angel who talked with me came forward, and another angel came forward to meet him 4and said to him, “Run, say to that young man, e  Jerusalem shall be inhabited f  as villages without walls, because of g  the multitude of people and livestock in it. 5And I will be to her h  a wall of fire all around, declares the  Lord, and I will be the glory in her midst.’”

6Up! Up! i  Flee from the land of the north, declares the  Lord. For I have j  spread you abroad as the four winds of the heavens, declares the  Lord. 7 k  Up! Escape to Zion, you who dwell with the daughter of Babylon. 8For thus said the  Lord of hosts, after his glory sent me
Or he sent me after glory
to the nations who plundered you, m  for he who touches you touches n  the apple of his eye:
9Behold o  I will shake my hand over them, p  and they shall become plunder for those who served them. Then q  you will know that the  Lord of hosts has sent me. 10 r  Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion, for s  behold, I come t  and I will dwell in your midst, declares the  Lord. 11 u  And many nations shall join themselves to the  Lord in that day, and shall be my people. v  And I will dwell in your midst, and w  you shall know that the  Lord of hosts has sent me to you. 12 x  And the  Lord will inherit Judah as his portion in the holy land, and will again y  choose Jerusalem.”

13Be silent, all flesh, before the  Lord, for he has roused himself from his holy dwelling.
