Under the name of Jerusalem, he prophesieth the progress of the church of Christ, by the conversion of some Jews and many Gentiles.
1 And I lifted up my eyes, and saw, and behold a man, with a measuring line in his hand.
Et levavi oculos meos, et vidi, et ecce vir, et in manu ejus funiculus mensorum.
2 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.
Et dixi : Quo tu vadis? Et dixit ad me : Ut metiar Jerusalem, et videam quanta sit latitudo ejus, et quanta longitudo ejus.
3 And behold the angel that spoke in me went forth, and another angel went out to meet him.
Et ecce angelus qui loquebatur in me egrediebatur, et angelus alius egrediebatur in occursum ejus :
4 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.
et dixit ad eum : Curre, loquere ad puerum istum, dicens : Absque muro habitabitur Jerusalem, prae multitudine hominum et jumentorum in medio ejus.
5 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.
Et ego ero ei, ait Dominus, murus ignis in circuitu, et in gloria ero in medio ejus.
6 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.
O, o, fugite de terra aquilonis, dicit Dominus, quoniam in quatuor ventos caeli dispersi vos, dicit Dominus.
7 O Sion, flee, thou that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon:
O Sion! fuge, quae habitas apud filiam Babylonis :
8 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:
quia haec dicit Dominus exercituum : Post gloriam misit me ad gentes quae spoliaverunt vos : qui enim tetigerit vos, tangit pupillam oculi mei :
9 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.
quia ecce ego levo manum meam super eos, et erunt praedae his qui serviebant sibi : et cognoscetis quia Dominus exercituum misit me.
10 Sing praise, and rejoice, O daughter of Sion: for behold I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee: saith the Lord.
Lauda et laetare, filia Sion, quia ecce ego venio, et habitabo in medio tui, ait Dominus.
11 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.
Et applicabuntur gentes multae ad Dominum in die illa, et erunt mihi in populum, et habitabo in medio tui : et scies quia Dominus exercituum misit me ad te.
12 And the Lord shall possess Juda his portion in the sanctified land: and he shall yet choose Jerusalem.
Et possidebit Dominus Judam partem suam in terra sanctificata, et eliget adhuc Jerusalem.
13 Let all flesh be silent at the presence of the Lord: for he is risen up out of his. holy habitation.
Sileat omnis caro a facie Domini, quia consurrexit de habitaculo sancto suo.
