Then I looked up--and there before me was a man with a measuring line in his hand!
I asked, "Where are you going?" He answered me, "To measure Jerusalem, to find out how wide and how long it is."13
Then the angel who was speaking to me left, and another angel came to meet him
and said to him: "Run, tell that young man, 'Jerusalem will be a city without walls2 because of the great number3 of men and livestock in it.45
And I myself will be a wall5 of fire6 around it,' declares the LORD, 'and I will be its glory7 within.'89
