Book of Zechariah Chapter 2

ZECHARIAH 2:1 I lifted up mine eyes again, and looked, and behold a man with a measuring line in his hand.

ZECHARIAH 2:2 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.

ZECHARIAH 2:3 And, behold, the angel that talked with me went forth, and another angel went out to meet him,

ZECHARIAH 2:4 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:

ZECHARIAH 2:5 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.

ZECHARIAH 2:6 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.

ZECHARIAH 2:7 Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon.

ZECHARIAH 2:8 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.

ZECHARIAH 2:9 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.

ZECHARIAH 2:10 Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the LORD.

ZECHARIAH 2:11 And many nations shall be joined to the LORD in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and thou shalt know that the LORD of Hosts hath sent me unto thee.

ZECHARIAH 2:12 And the LORD shall inherit Judah his portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again.

ZECHARIAH 2:13 Be silent, O all flesh, before the LORD: for he is raised up out of his holy habitation.

History of the King James Bible

Meaning and pronunciation of Hebrew names in the Old Testament

Preface to the First Edition of the King James Bible

The bible and Zionism

The Bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, is accepted by the three major Western faiths. It is a major work of Western civilization. The Bible documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
