5 And I lifted my eyes, and saw, and behold, a man◦, and in his hand a measuring cord.
6 And I said, whither▵ goest◦ thou◦? And he said to▵ me, To measure Jerusalem, to see what is her breadth, and what is her length.
7 And behold, the angel who spoke with me went··out, and another angel went··out to meet him,
8 and said to▵ him, Run, speak to▵ the lad yonder, saying, Jerusalem shall dwell in the countryside from the multitude of man and beast in her midst.
9 And I◦, says◦ Jehovah, will be to her a wall of fire all around, and will be the glory in the midst of her.
10 Oh, oh, flee from the land of the north, says◦ Jehovah, for I have spread you as the four winds of the heavens, says◦ Jehovah.
11 Oh, Zion! Deliver◦ thyself, thou who art dwelling with the daughter of Babylon.
12 For thus says Jehovah of Armies: He has sent me after the glory, to▵ the nations which spoiled you; for he who touches on you touches on the daughter of His eye.
13 For, behold, I will wave My hand over them, and they shall be a spoil to their servants; and you shall know that Jehovah of Armies has sent me.
14 Sing··aloud and be··glad, O daughter of Zion; for, lo, I come, and I will reside in the midst of thee, says◦ Jehovah.
15 And many nations shall be joined to▵ Jehovah in that◦ day, and shall be My people; and I will reside in the midst of thee, and thou shalt know that Jehovah of Armies has sent me to▵ thee.
16 And Jehovah shall take· Judah ·for··an··inheritance, His part on the holy ground, and shall choose Jerusalem yet··again.
17 Keep··silent, O all flesh, before Jehovah; for He is stirred··up out··of His holy abode.
