Zechariah 2:1-13
This third division may be called, “The vision of the man with the measuring line.” The prophet here has before him not only the angel who was attending him, but another angel and a man with a measuring line in his hand; and moreover, he hears the voice of the Lord; or, it may be, the word of the Lord is rehearsed to him. But the whole of this teaches him that Jerusalem is to be in its place, established and dignified again; and that after the glory has seated itself there, inquisition should be made of those nations, who, in the day of their calamity, troubled the Israel of God. (We see this again, I may say, in Matthew 25, when the Son of Man is on the throne of His millennial glory.) Zion, in that day, is to sing for joy; nations also shall join themselves to the Lord of Israel, and all flesh shall see the salvation of God, and be subdued to the sense of the presence of the Lord in the earth again.
