Bible: Zechariah 1:16-17

The Oracle of Response

1:16‘Therefore,’ says the Lord, ‘I have become compassionate 1  toward Jerusalem 2  and will rebuild my temple 3  in it,’ says the Lord who rules over all. ‘Once more a surveyor’s measuring line will be stretched out over Jerusalem.’ 1:17 Speak up again with the message of the Lord who rules over all: ‘My cities will once more overflow with prosperity, and once more the Lord will comfort Zion and validate his choice of Jerusalem.’
