Zecharyah 2
1[2:5] I lifted up mine eyes again, and looked, and, hinei, a man with a measuring line in his hand! 2[2:6] Then said I, Whither goest thou? And he said unto me, To measure Yerushalayim, to see what is the breadth thereof, and what is the length thereof. 3[2:7] And, hinei, the malach that spoke with me went forth, and another malach went out to meet him, 4[2:8] And said unto him, Run, speak to this na'ar (young man, i.e., see 2:1 [2:5]) saying, Yerushalayim shall be inhabited like unwalled cities because of the multitude of men and cattle therein; 5[2:9] For I, saith Hashem, will be unto her a chomat eish (wall of fire) round about, and will be the kavod in the midst of her. 6[2:10] Come, come, and flee out of the Eretz Tzafon, saith Hashem; for I have scattered you like the Arbah Ruchot HaShomayim, saith Hashem. 7[2:11] Come, save thyself, O Tziyon, thou that dwellest with the Bat Bavel. 8[2:12] For thus saith Hashem Tzva'os: After Kavod (Glory) sent me unto the Goyim who plundered you --the one that toucheth you toucheth the apple of His eye. 9[2:13] Hineni, I will surely raise Mine hand against them, and they shall be plunder to their avadim; and ye shall know that Hashem Tzva'os hath sent me. 10[2:14] Sing and rejoice, O Bat Tziyon; for, hineni, I will come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith Hashem. 11[2:15] And Goyim rabbim shall be joined to Hashem in Yom HaHu (that day), and shall be Ami (My People): and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and thou shalt know that Hashem Tzva'os hath sent me unto thee. 12[2:16] And Hashem shall inherit Yehudah as His chelek in the Admat HaKodesh (Holy Land), and shall choose Yerushalayim again. 13[2:17] Be silent, Kol Basar, before Hashem; for He has roused Himself from His Ma'on Kadosh (holy habitation).
