Zechariah 2:2

_ _ To measure Jerusalem — (Compare Revelation 11:1; Revelation 21:15, Revelation 21:16).

_ _ to see what is the breadth ... what is the length — rather, “what is to be the due breadth and length.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Zechariah 2:1-5.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Zechariah 2:2

To measure — To take the exact dimensions of it, that it may answer God's promise, and be capable to receive its inhabitants. Jerusalem — The city which was to be built hereafter.
