Zechariah 2

1 5 And I lifted my eyes, and saw, and behold, a man, and in his hand a measuring cord.

2 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.

3 7 And behold, the angel who spoke with me went·​·out, and another angel went·​·out to meet him,

4 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.

5 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.

6 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.

7 11 Oh, Zion! Deliver thyself, thou who art dwelling with the daughter of Babylon.

8 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.

9 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.

10 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.

11 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.

12 16 And Jehovah shall take· Judah ·for·​·an·​·inheritance, His part on the holy ground, and shall choose Jerusalem yet·​·again.

13 17 Keep·​·silent, O all flesh, before Jehovah; for He is stirred·​·up out·​·of His holy abode.
