Zechariah 2 (asv)

2:1And I lifted up mine eyes, and saw, and, behold, a man with a measuring line in his hand. 2:2Then 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. 2:3And, behold, the angel that talked with me went forth, and another angel went out to meet him, 2:4and said unto him, Run, speak to this young man, saying, Jerusalem shall be inhabited as villages without walls, by reason of the multitude of men and cattle therein. 2:5For I, saith Jehovah, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and I will be the glory in the midst of her. 2:6Ho, ho, flee from the land of the north, saith Jehovah; for I have spread you abroad as the four winds of the heavens, saith Jehovah. 2:7Ho Zion, escape, thou that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon. 2:8For thus saith Jehovah of hosts: After glory hath he sent me unto the nations which plundered you; for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye. 2:9For, behold, I will shake my hand over them, and they shall be a spoil to those that served them; and ye shall know that Jehovah of hosts hath sent me. 2:10Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion; for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith Jehovah. 2:11And many nations shall join themselves to Jehovah in that day, and shall be my people; and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and thou shalt know that Jehovah of hosts has sent me unto thee. 2:12And Jehovah shall inherit Judah as his portion in the holy land, and shall yet choose Jerusalem. 2:13Be silent, all flesh, before Jehovah; for he is waked up out of his holy habitation.
