Zechariah 2

God’s Favor to Zion

1
Ch 2:5 in Heb
Then I lifted up my eyes and looked, and behold, there was a man with a b  measuring line in his hand.
2So I said, “Where are you going?” And he said to me, “To c  measure Jerusalem, to see how wide it is and how long it is.” 3And behold, the d  angel who was speaking with me was going out, and another angel was coming out to meet him, 4and said to him, “Run, speak to that e  young man, saying, ‘ f  Jerusalem will be inhabited
Lit like unwalled villages; or like open country
,
h  without walls because of the i  multitude of men and cattle within it.
5‘For I,’ declares the  Lord, ‘will be a j  wall of fire
Lit to her
around her, and I will be the l  glory in her midst.’”

6
Lit Ho! Ho!
Ho there! n  Flee from the land of the north,” declares the  Lord, “for I have o  dispersed you as the four winds of the heavens,” declares the  Lord.
7Ho, Zion! p  Escape, you who are living with the daughter of Babylon.” 8For thus says the  Lord of hosts, “After
Or the glory
,
r  glory He has sent me against the nations which plunder you, for he who touches you, touches the
Lit pupil
,
t  apple of His eye.
9For behold, I will u  wave My hand over them so that they will be v  plunder for their slaves. Then you will know that the  Lord of hosts has sent Me. 10 w  Sing for joy and be glad, O daughter of Zion; for behold I am coming and I will x  dwell in your midst,” declares the  Lord. 11 y  Many nations will join themselves to the  Lord in that day and will become My people. Then I will z  dwell in your midst, and you will aa  know that the  Lord of hosts has sent Me to you. 12“The  Lord will
Or inherit
,
ac  possess Judah as His portion in the holy land, and will again ad  choose Jerusalem.

13
Lit Hush
,
af  Be silent, all flesh, before the  Lord; for He is ag  aroused from His holy habitation.”
