Future Prosperity of Jerusalem

2When I looked again, I saw a man with a measuring line in his hand.H5375H5869H7200H376H4060H2256H3027 2“Where are you going?” I asked. He replied, “I am going to measure Jerusalem, to see how wide and how long it is.”H559H1980H559H4058H3389H7200H4100H7341H753 3Then the angel who was with me went to meet a second angel who was coming toward him.H4397H1696H3318H312H4397H3318H7125 4The other angel said, “Hurry, and say to that young man, ‘Jerusalem will someday be so full of people and livestock that there won’t be room enough for everyone! Many will live outside the city walls.H559H7323H1696H1975H5288H559H3389H3427H6519H7230H120H929H8432 5Then I, myself, will be a protective wall of fire around Jerusalem, says the Lord. And I will be the glory inside the city!’”H5002H3068H2346H784H5439H3519H8432

The Exiles Are Called Home

6The Lord says, “Come away! Flee from Babylon in the land of the north, for I have scattered you to the four winds.H1945H1945H5127H776H6828H5002H3068H6566H702H7307H8064H5002H3068 7Come away, people of Zion, you who are exiled in Babylon!”H4422H1945H6726H3427H1323H894 8After a period of glory, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies sent me against the nations who plundered you. For he said, “Anyone who harms you harms my most precious possession.H559H3068H6635H310H3519H7971H1471H7997H5060H5060H892H5869 9I will raise my fist to crush them, and their own slaves will plunder them.” Then you will know that the Lord of Heaven’s Armies has sent me.H5130H3027H7998H5647H3045H3068H6635H7971 10The Lord says, “Shout and rejoice, O beautiful Jerusalem, for I am coming to live among you.H7442H8055H1323H6726H935H7931H8432H5002H3068 11Many nations will join themselves to the Lord on that day, and they, too, will be my people. I will live among you, and you will know that the Lord of Heaven’s Armies sent me to you.H7227H1471H3867H3068H3117H5971H7931H8432H3045H3068H6635H7971 12The land of Judah will be the Lord’s special possession in the holy land, and he will once again choose Jerusalem to be his own city.H3068H5157H3063H2506H6944H127H977H3389 13Be silent before the Lord, all humanity, for he is springing into action from his holy dwelling.”H2013H1320H6440H3068H5782H6944H4583
