The Angel with a Measuring Line; God Redeems Zion; the Promise of God's Presence

I lifted up my eyes, and saw, and behold, a man with a measuring line in his hand. +
Then I asked, "Where are you going?"He said to me, "To measure Jerusalem, to see what is its width and what is its length." +
Behold, the angel who talked with me went out, and another angel went out to meet him, +
and said to him, "Run, speak to this young man, saying, 'Jerusalem will be inhabited as villages without walls, because of the multitude of men and livestock in it. +
For I,' says The LORD, 'will be to her a wall of fire around it, and I will be the glory in the middle of her. +
Come! Come! Flee from the land of the north,' says The LORD; 'for I have spread you abroad as the four winds of the sky,' says The LORD. +
'Come, Zion! Escape, you who dwell with the daughter of Babylon.' +
For the LORD of Hosts says: 'For honor he has sent me to the nations which plundered you; for he who touches you touches the apple of his eye.
For, behold, I will shake my hand over them, and they will be a plunder to those who served them; and you will know that the LORD of Hosts has sent me. +
Sing and rejoice, daughter of Zion; for, behold, I come, and I will dwell within you,' says The LORD. +
Many nations shall join themselves to the LORD in that day, and shall be my people; and I will dwell among you, and you shall know that the LORD of Hosts has sent me to you. +
The LORD will inherit Judah as his portion in the holy land, and will again choose Jerusalem. +
Be silent, all flesh, before The LORD; for he has roused himself from his holy habitation!" +
