I looked up and saw a man with a measuring line in his hand.
I asked, "Where are you going?" He said to me, "To measure Yerushalayim, to determine its width and length."
Here the angel who was speaking to me went forward, and another angel went out, met him
and said to him, "Run and tell this young man, 'Yerushalayim will be inhabited without walls, because there will be so many people and animals;
"for," says ADONAI, "I will be for her a wall of fire surrounding her; and I will be the glory within her.
Up!" says ADONAI, "Move! Flee the land of the north! For I scattered you like the four winds of the sky," says ADONAI.
"Move, Tziyon! You who are living with the daughter of Bavel, escape!"
For ADONAI-Tzva'ot has sent me on a glorious mission to the nations that plundered you, and this is what he says: "Anyone who injures you injures the very pupil of my eye.
But I will shake my hand over them, and they will be plundered by those who were formerly their slaves." Then you will know that ADONAI-Tzva'ot sent me.
