ZECH 2:1 And I lift up mine eyes, and look, and lo, a man, and in his hand a measuring line.
ZECH 2:2 And I say, `Whither are thou going?' And he saith unto me, `To measure Jerusalem, to see how much `is' its breadth, and how much its length.'
ZECH 2:3 And lo, the messenger who is speaking with me is going out, and another messenger is going out to meet him,
ZECH 2:4 and he saith unto him, `Run, speak unto this young man, saying: Unwalled villages inhabit doth Jerusalem, From the abundance of man and beast in her midst.
ZECH 2:5 And I -- I am to her -- an affirmation of Jehovah, A wall of fire round about, And for honour I am in her midst.
ZECH 2:6 Ho, ho, and flee from the land of the north, An affirmation of Jehovah, For, as the four winds of the heavens, I have spread you abroad, An affirmation of Jehovah.
ZECH 2:7 Ho, Zion, be delivered who art dwelling `with' the daughter of Babylon.
ZECH 2:8 For thus said Jehovah of Hosts: After honour He hath sent me unto the nations who are spoiling you, For he who is coming against you, Is coming against the daughter of His eye.
ZECH 2:9 For lo, I am waving my hand against them, And they have been a spoil to their servants. And ye have known that Jehovah of Hosts hath sent me.
ZECH 2:10 Singe, and rejoice, O daughter of Zion, For lo, I am coming, and have dwelt in thy midst, An affirmation of Jehovah.
ZECH 2:11 And joined have been many nations unto Jehovah in that day, And they have been to Me for a people, And I have dwelt in thy midst, And thou hast known that Jehovah of Hosts hath sent me unto thee.
ZECH 2:12 And Jehovah hath inherited Judah, His portion on the holy ground, And He hath fixed again on Jerusalem.
ZECH 2:13 Hush, all flesh, because of Jehovah, For He hath been roused up from His holy habitation!'
