God, in the care of Jerusalem, sendeth to measure it.
Zechariah 2:1 I lifted up my eyes again, and looked, and behold a man with a measuring line in his hand. Zechariah 2:2 Then said I, Whither goest thou? And he said to me, To measure Jerusalem, to see what [is] its breadth, and what [is] its length. Zechariah 2:3 And behold, the angel that talked with me went forth, and another angel went out to meet him, Zechariah 2:4 And said to him, Run, speak to this young man, saying, Jerusalem shall be inhabited [as] towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle in it. Zechariah 2:5 For I, saith the LORD, will be to her a wall of fire on every side, and will be the glory in the midst of her.
The redemption of Zion.
Zechariah 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. Zechariah 2:7 Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest [with] the daughter of Babylon. Zechariah 2:8 For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me to the nations which wasted you: for he that toucheth you, toucheth the apple of his eye. Zechariah 2:9 For behold, I will shake my hand upon them, and they shall be a spoil to their servants: and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me.
The promise of God's presence.
Zechariah 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. Zechariah 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 to thee. Zechariah 2:12 And the LORD shall inherit Judah his portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again. Zechariah 2:13 Be silent, O all flesh, before the LORD: for he is raised up out of his holy habitation.
