1 I lifted up mine eyes again, and looked, and behold aa man with a measuring line in his hand.
2 Then said I, Whither goest thou? And he said unto me, bTo measure Jerusalem, to see what is the breadth thereof, and what is the length thereof.
3 And, behold, the angel that talked with me went forth, and another angel went out to meet him,
4 And said unto him, Run, speak to this young man, saying, cJerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle therein:
5 For I, saith the LORD, will be unto her da wall of fire round about, eand will be the glory in the midst of her.
6 Ho, ho, come forth, and flee from the land of the north, saith the LORD: for I have fspread you abroad as the four winds of the heaven, saith the LORD. 7 Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon. 8 For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that gtoucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye. 9 For, behold, I will shake mine hand upon them, and they shall be a spoil to their servants: and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me.
10 Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I hwill dwell in the midst of thee, saith the LORD. 11 iAnd many nations shall be joined to the LORD in that day, and shall be jmy people: and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and kthou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto thee. 12 And the LORD shall linherit Judah his portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again. 13 mBe silent, O all flesh, before the LORD: for he is raised up out of his holy habitation.
