And said unto him, Run , speak to this young man,saying , Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattletherein:5

6Ho,ho, come forth, and flee from the land of the north,saith the LORD: for I have spread you abroad as the fourwinds of the heaven,saith the LORD.7Deliver thyself, OZion, 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

10Sing and rejoice , O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come , and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the LORD.11

And the LORD shall inheritJudah his portion in the holyland, and shall chooseJerusalem again.
Be silent , O all flesh,before the LORD: for he is raised up out of his holyhabitation.
