Zechariah 2:1-9

1 I looked up and saw a man with a measuring line in his hand.
2 Then I asked, "Where are you going?" He answered me, "To measure Jerusalem, to see what is its width and what is its length."
3 Then the angel who talked with me came forward, and another angel came forward to meet him,
4 and said to him, "Run, say to that young man: Jerusalem shall be inhabited like villages without walls, because of the multitude of people and animals in it.
5 For I will be a wall of fire all around it, says the Lord, and I will be the glory within it."
6 Up, up! Flee from the land of the north, says the Lord; for I have spread you abroad like the four winds of heaven, says the Lord.
7 Up! Escape to Zion, you that live with daughter Babylon.
8 For thus said the Lord of hosts (after his glory sent me) regarding the nations that plundered you: Truly, one who touches you touches the apple of my eye.
9 See now, I am going to raise my hand against them, and they shall become plunder for their own slaves. Then you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent me.
