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