AND I lifted up my eyes and saw, and behold, a man with a measuring line in his hand.
Then said I, Where are you going? And he said to me, To measure Jerusalem, to see what is its breadth and what is its length.
And behold, the angel who talked with me went forth and another angel went out to meet him,
And he said to the second angel, Run, speak to this young man, saying, Jerusalem shall be inhabited and dwell as villages without walls, because of the multitude of people and livestock in it.
For I, says the Lord, will be to her a wall of fire round about, and I will be the glory in the midst of her.
