1 And I raised my eyes and saw, and behold a man in whose hand was a measuring-line:
2 and I said, Where art thou going? And he said to me, To measure Jerusalem, that I may see what is its breadth, and what is its length.
3 And behold the angel who was speaking with me, he went forth, and another angel went forth to meet him, and said to him,
4 Run, speak to this youth, saying, -- In the villages shall dwell Jerusalem, For the number of men and cattle in it:
5 And I shall be to it, saith Jehovah, A wall of fire round about, And for glory shall I be in the midst of it
6 Ho! Ho! flee ye From the land of the north, saith Jehovah: For to the four winds of heaven Have I scattered you, saith Jehovah. (65)
7 Ho! Zion! be thou delivered, Who dwellest with the daughter of Babylon.
8 For thus saith Jehovah of hosts, After the glory hath he sent me To the nations with spoiled you: For he who touches you Touches the apple of his eye.
9 For, behold, I shake my hand over them, And they shall be a prey to their servants; And ye shall know That Jehovah of hosts hath sent me.
10 Exult and rejoice, thou daughter of Zion; For behold I am coming, And will dwell in thy midst, saith Jehovah:
11 And join themselves shall many nations To Jehovah in that day; And they shall be to me a people, And I will dwell in the midst of thee; And thou shalt know, That Jehovah of hosts has sent me to thee:
12 And Jehovah will take Judah As his hereditary portion in the holy land; And he will yet choose Jerusalem. Be silent all flesh before Jehovah; Be silent all flesh before Jehovah; Fore roused he is from his holy habitation.
