Why does it have strange spelling?
1 God in the care of Ierusalem sendeth to measure it. 6 The redemption of Zion. 10 The promise of Gods presence.
I lift vp mine eyes againe, and looked, and behold, a man with a measuring line in his hand.
Then said I, Whither goest thou? And hee said vnto me, To measure Ierusalem, to see what is the breadth thereof, and what is the length thereof.
And behold, the Angel that talked with me, went foorth, and another Angel went out to meete him:
And said vnto him, Run, speake to this young man, saying; Ierusalem shall be inhabited as townes without walles, for the multitude of men and cattell therein.
For I, saith the Lord, will be vnto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her.
¶ Ho, ho, come foorth, and flee from the land of the North, saith the Lord: for I haue spread you abroad as the foure windes of the heauen, sayth the Lord.
Deliuer thy selfe, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon.
For thus sayth the Lord of hostes, After the glory hath he sent me vnto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you, toucheth the apple of his eye.8
For behold, I will shake mine hand vpon them, and they shall bee a spoile to their seruants: and yee shall know that the Lord of hostes hath sent me.
¶ Sing and reioyce, O daughter of Zion: for loe, I come, and I will dwell in the middest of thee, sayth the Lord.10
And many nations shalbe ioyned to the Lord in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwel in the middest of thee, and thou shalt know that the Lord of hostes hath sent me vnto thee.
And the Lord shall inherite Iudah his portion in the holy land, and shall choose Ierusalem againe.
Be silent, O all flesh, before the Lord: for he is raised vp out of his holy habitation.13
