Bible: Zech 1:14-16

1:14 Turning to me, the messenger then said, “Cry out that the Lord who rules over all says, ‘I am very much moved 1  for Jerusalem and for Zion. 1:15 But I am greatly displeased with the nations that take my grace for granted. 2  I was a little displeased with them, but they have only made things worse for themselves.

The Oracle of Response

1:16‘Therefore,’ says the Lord, ‘I have become compassionate 3  toward Jerusalem 4  and will rebuild my temple 5  in it,’ says the Lord who rules over all. ‘Once more a surveyor’s measuring line will be stretched out over Jerusalem.’
