Zechariah 2
1I lifted up my eyes again, and looked, and behold a man with a measuring line in his hand.
2Then said I, Where go youi? And he said unto me, To measure Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace], to see what [is] the breadth thereof, and what [is] the length thereof.
3And, behold, the angel that talked with me went forth, and another angel went out to meet him,
4And said unto him, Run, speak to this young man, saying, Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace] shall be inhabited [as] towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle in it:
5For I, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her.
6Ho, ho, [come forth], and flee from the land of the north, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate): for I have spread you abroad as the four winds of the heaven, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate).
7Deliver yourself, O Tziyon [parched place], that dwell [with] the daughter of Bavel (to jumble, or a confused medley of sounds; confusion; gate of the deity) (Babylon) [confusion].
8For thus says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) Tz’va’ot [of the Heavenly Armies]; After the glory has he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that touches you touches the apple of his eye.
9For, behold, I will shake my hand upon them, and they shall be a spoil (plunder; prey; booty) to their servants: and you2f shall know that the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) Tz’va’ot [of the Heavenly Armies] has sent me.
10Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Tziyon [parched place]: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of youi, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate).
11And many nations shall be joined to the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of youi, and youi shall know that the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) Tz’va’ot [of the Heavenly Armies] has sent me unto youi.
12And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) shall inherit Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised] his portion in the holy land, and shall choose Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace] again.
13Be silent, O all flesh, before the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate): for he is raised up out of his holy habitation.
