Zechariah 2:1-13 NIV

Zechariah 2:1-13 NIV [1] Then I looked up, and there before me was a man with a measuring line in his hand. [2] I asked, "Where are you going?" He answered me, "To measure Jerusalem, to find out how wide and how long it is." [3] While the angel who was speaking to me was leaving, another angel came to meet him [4] and said to him: "Run, tell that young man, 'Jerusalem will be a city without walls because of the great number of people and animals in it. [5] And I myself will be a wall of fire around it,' declares the LORD, 'and I will be its glory within.' [6] "Come! Come! Flee from the land of the north," declares the LORD, "for I have scattered you to the four winds of heaven," declares the LORD. [7] "Come, Zion! Escape, you who live in Daughter Babylon!" [8] For this is what the LORD Almighty says: "After the Glorious One has sent me against the nations that have plundered you-for whoever touches you touches the apple of his eye- [9] I will surely raise my hand against them so that their slaves will plunder them. Then you will know that the LORD Almighty has sent me. [10] "Shout and be glad, Daughter Zion. For I am coming, and I will live among you," declares the LORD. [11] "Many nations will be joined with the LORD in that day and will become my people. I will live among you and you will know that the LORD Almighty has sent me to you. [12] The LORD will inherit Judah as his portion in the holy land and will again choose Jerusalem. [13] Be still before the LORD, all mankind, because he has roused himself from his holy dwelling."
