1 I lifted up mine eyes again, and looked, and behold a man with a measuring a in his hand.
2 Then said I, Whither goest thou? And he said unto me, To measure Jerusalem, to see what is the breadth thereof, and what is the length thereof.
3 And, behold, the angel that talked with me went forth, and another angel went out to meet him,
4 And said unto him, Run, speak to this young man, saying, Jerusalem shall be a as towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle therein:
5 For I, saith the Lord, will be unto her a wall of a round about, and will be the b in the midst of her.
6 ¶Ho, ho, come forth, and flee from the land of the a, saith the Lord: for I have b you abroad as the c winds of the heaven, saith the Lord.
7 a thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon.
8 For thus saith the Lord of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.
9 For, behold, I will shake mine hand upon them, and they shall be a spoil to their servants: and ye shall know that the Lord of hosts hath sent me.
10 ¶Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will a in the midst of thee, saith the Lord.
11 And many a shall be joined to the Lord in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the b of thee, and thou shalt know that the Lord of hosts hath sent me unto thee.
12 And the Lord shall inherit a his portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again.
13 Be silent, O all flesh, before the Lord: for he is raised up out of his holy a.
