Zechariah 2

Thomson(i) 1 Then I lifted up mine eyes and looked, and lo! a man with a measuring line in his hand! 2 and I said to him, Whither art thou going? And he said to me, To measure Jerusalem to see how broad it is, and what is its length. 3 Now behold the angel who had been talking with me had stopped; and another angel came out to meet him 4 and spoke to him saying, "Run and speak to that young man and say, "Jerusalem shall be crouded with inhabitants by reason of the multitude of men and cattle therein. 5 And I will be to her, saith the Lord, a wall of fire around; and I will be a glory in the midst of her. 6 flee! flee from the land of the north, saith the Lord, for from the four winds of heaven I will gather you, saith the Lord. 7 To Sion make your escape, ye who inhabit the daughter of Babylon! 8 for thus saith the Lord Almighty. He behind glory hath sent me against the nations which plundered you: for he who toucheth you, is like one touching the apple of his eye. 9 For behold I am bringing my hand upon them; and they shall be spoils for them who were their vassals: and you shall know that the Lord Almighty hath sent me. 10 Rejoice and be glad, daughter of Sion! for lo! I am coming; and I will dwell amidst thee, saith the Lord; 11 and many nations will flee to the Lord in that day, and be his people and dwell in the midst of thee; and thou shalt know that the Lord Almighty hath sent me to thee. 12 And the Lord will settle Juda in his portion, in the holy land; and will again make choice of Jerusalem. 13 Let all flesh be struck with awe, at the presence of the Lord, for he is risen up from his holy clouds.
