Zechariah 2

Zechariah Sees A String

1 Then I looked up and saw a man holding a string used to find the length of things. 2 So I said, "Where are you going?" And he said to me, "To see how long and how wide Jerusalem is." 3 Then the angel who was speaking with me was going out, and another angel was coming out to meet him, 4 and said to him, "Run, say to that young man, 'Jerusalem will be a city without walls because of the many men and cattle in it. 5 For I will be a wall of fire around her,' says the Lord. 'And I will be the shining-greatness of her.' "

Joy To Come For Jerusalem

6 "Come, come, run from the land of the north!" says the Lord. "For I have sent you to the four winds of the heavens," says the Lord. 7 "O Zion! Run away, you who are living with the people of Babylon." 8 For the Lord of All says, "The Lord of shining-greatness has sent Me against the nations which have robbed you in battle. For whoever touches you, touches what is of great worth to Him. 9 I will wave My hand over them, and they will be taken by those who were made to serve them. Then you will know that the Lord of All has sent Me. 10 Sing for joy and be glad, O people of Zion. For I am coming and I will live among you," says the Lord. 11 "Many nations will be joined to the Lord in that day and will become My people. I will live among you, and you will know that the Lord of All has sent Me to you. 12 The Lord will receive Judah as His share in the holy land, and will again choose Jerusalem. 13 All of you be quiet before the Lord. For He is coming from His holy place."
