A Vision of a Man with a Measuring Line1 ▼
▼ Ch 2:5 in HebrewAnd I lifted my eyes and saw, and behold b a man with a measuring line in his hand! 2 Then 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.” 3 And behold, d the angel who talked with me came forward, and another angel came forward to meet him 4 and 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. 5 And I will be to her h a wall of fire all around, declares the Lord, and I will be the glory in her midst.’” 6 Up! 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. 8 For thus said the Lord of hosts, after his glory sent me ▼
▼ Or he sent me after gloryto the nations who plundered you, m for he who touches you touches n the apple of his eye: 9 “Behold 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.” 13 Be silent, all flesh, before the Lord, for he has roused himself from his holy dwelling.
