Trivia:

A man with a measuring line
2:1-5

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

I saw a man with a measuring line in his hand. [1]

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,

I said to him,

Where are you going?

He said,

To measure Jerusalem.

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:

Then another angel came to meet him, and said,

Jerusalem will be inhabited with people and animals.

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.

Because God said,

I will be a wall of fire around Jerusalem,

and will be the glory in the middle of the city.

The apple of God's eye
2:6-13

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.

God said,

Ho, Ho, flee from the land of the north.

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

Deliver yourself, O Zion, who lives 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.

Whoever touches you, touches the apple of my eye. [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.

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

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.

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

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

And I'll shake my hand at them.
