1 I lifted up my eyes, and saw: and behold four horns.
2 And I said to the angel that spoke to me: What are these? And he said to me: These are the horns that have scattered Juda, and Israel, and Jerusalem.
3 And the Lord shewed me four smiths.
4 And I said: What come these to do? and he spoke, saying: These are the horns which have scattered Juda every man apart, and none of them lifted up his head: and these are come to fray them, to cast down the horns of the nations, that have lifted up the horn upon the land of Juda to scatter it.
5 And I lifted up my eyes, and saw, and behold a man, with a measuring line in his hand.
6 And I said: Whither goest thou? and he said to me: To measure Jerusalem, and to see how great is the breadth thereof, and how great the length thereof.
7 And behold the angel that spoke in me went forth, and another angel went out to meet him.
8 And he said to him: Run, speak to this young man, saying: Jerusalem shall be inhabited without walls, by reason of the multitude of men, and of the beasts in the midst thereof.
9 And I will be to it, saith the Lord, a wall of fire round about: and I will be in glory in the midst thereof.
10 O, O flee ye out of the land of the north, saith the Lord, for I have scattered you into the four winds of heaven, saith the Lord.
11 O Sion, flee, thou that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon:
12 For thus saith the Lord of hosts: After the glory he hath sent me to the nations that have robbed you: for he that toucheth you, toucheth the apple of my eye:
13 For behold I lift up my hand upon them, and they shall be a prey to those that served them: and you shall know that the Lord of hosts sent me.
14 Sing praise, and rejoice, O daughter of Sion: for behold I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee: saith the Lord.
15 And many nations shall be joined to the Lord in that day, and they 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 to thee.
16 And the Lord shall possess Juda his portion in the sanctified land: and he shall yet choose Jerusalem.
17 Let all flesh be silent at the presence of the Lord: for he is risen up out of his. holy habitation.
