Zecharyah (Book of Zechariah), Chapter 2

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'5 And I lifted up mine eyes, and saw, and behold a man with a measuring line in his hand.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'6 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.'

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'7 And, behold, the angel that spoke with me went forth, and another angel went out to meet him,

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'8 and said unto him: 'Run, speak to this young man, saying: 'Jerusalem shall be inhabited without walls for the multitude of men and cattle therein.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'9 For I, saith HaShem, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and I will be the glory in the midst of her.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'10 Ho, ho, flee then from the land of the north, saith HaShem; for I have spread you abroad as the four winds of the heaven, saith HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'11 Ho, Zion, escape, thou that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon.'

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'12 For thus saith HaShem of hosts who sent me after glory unto the nations which spoiled you: 'Surely, he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'13 For, behold, I will shake My hand over them, and they shall be a spoil to those that served them'; and ye shall know that HaShem of hosts hath sent me.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'14 'Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion; for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'15 And many nations shall join themselves to HaShem in that day, and shall be My people, and I will dwell in the midst of thee'; and thou shalt know that HaShem of hosts hath sent me unto thee.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'16 And HaShem shall inherit Judah as His portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'17 Be silent, all flesh, before HaShem; for He is aroused out of His holy habitation.
