Zechariah 2

Vision of the Measuring Line
1Then I raised my eyes and looked, and behold, #Jer. 31:39; Ezek. 40:3; 47:3; Zech. 1:16a man with a measuring line in his hand. 2So I said, “Where are you going?”
And he said to me, #Rev. 11:1“To measure Jerusalem, to see what is its width and what is its length.”
3And there was the angel who talked with me, going out; and another angel was coming out to meet him, 4who said to him, “Run, speak to this young man, saying: #Jer. 31:27‘Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls, because of the multitude of men and livestock in it. 5For I,’ says the Lord, ‘will be #(Is. 26:1)a wall of fire all around her, #(Is. 60:19)and I will be the glory in her midst.’ ”
Future Joy of Zion and Many Nations
6“Up, up! Flee #Is. 48:20from the land of the north,” says the Lord; “for I have #Deut. 28:64spread you abroad like the four winds of heaven,” says the Lord. 7“Up, Zion! #Is. 48:20; Jer. 51:6; (Rev. 18:4)Escape, you who dwell with the daughter of Babylon.”
8For thus says the Lord of hosts: “He sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he who #Deut. 32:10; Ps. 17:8touches you touches the apple of His eye. 9For surely I will #Is. 19:16shake My hand against them, and they shall become spoil for their servants. Then #Zech. 4:9you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent Me.
10#Is. 12:6“Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion! For behold, I am coming and I #(Lev. 26:12)will dwell in your midst,” says the Lord. 11#(Is. 2:2, 3)“Many nations shall be joined to the Lord #Zech. 3:10in that day, and they shall become #Ex. 12:49My people. And I will dwell in your midst. Then #Ezek. 33:33you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent Me to you. 12And the Lord will #(Deut. 32:9); Ps. 33:12; Jer. 10:16take possession of Judah as His inheritance in the Holy Land, and will again choose Jerusalem. 13#Hab. 2:20; Zeph. 1:7Be silent, all flesh, before the Lord, for He is aroused #Ps. 68:5from His holy habitation!”
