God’s Favor to Zion

1 IThen I lifted up my eyes and looked, and behold, [there was] a man with a ameasuring line in his hand. 2 So I said, “Where are you going?” And he said to me, “To ameasure Jerusalem, to see how wide it is and how long it is.” 3 And behold, the aangel who was speaking with me was going out, and another angel was coming out to meet him, 4 and said to him, “Run, speak to that ayoung man, saying, ‘bJerusalem will be inhabited Icwithout walls because of the dmultitude of men and cattle within it. 5 For I,’ declares the LORD, ‘will be a awall of fire Iaround her, and I will be the bglory in her midst.’”

God, in the care of Jerusalem, sendeth to measure it.

1 ¶ I lifted up mine eyes again, and looked, and behold a man with a measuring line in his hand. 2 Then said I, Whither goest thou? And he said unto me, To measure Jerusalem, to see what [is] the breadth thereof, and what [is] the length thereof. 3 And, behold, the angel that talked with me went forth, and another angel went out to meet him, 4 And said unto him, Run, speak to this young man, saying, Jerusalem shall be inhabited [as] towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle therein: 5 For I, saith the LORD, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her.

The redemption of Zion.

6 ¶ Ho, ho, [come forth], and flee from the land of the north, saith the LORD: for I have spread you abroad as the four winds of the heaven, saith the LORD. 7 Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest [with] the daughter of Babylon. 8 For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye. 9 For, behold, I will shake mine hand upon them, and they shall be a spoil to their servants: and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me.
