And the men on the horses answered the Angel of the Master Who stood among the myrtle trees and said, We have walked to and fro through the earth [patrolling it] and behold, all the earth sits at rest [in peaceful security].
Then the Angel of the Master said, O Master of hosts, how long will You not have mercy and lovingkindness for Jerusalem and the cities of Judah, against which You have had indignation these seventy years [of the Babylonian captivity]?
And the Master answered the angel who talked with me with gracious and comforting words.
So the angel who talked with me said to me, Cry out, Thus says the Master of hosts: I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy.
And I am very angry with the nations that are at ease; for while I was but a little displeased, they helped forward the affliction and disaster.
Therefore, thus says the Master: I have returned to Jerusalem with compassion (lovingkindness and mercy). My house shall be built in it, says the Master of hosts, and a measuring line shall be stretched out over Jerusalem [with a view to rebuilding its walls].
Cry yet again, saying, Thus says the Master of hosts: My cities shall yet again overflow with prosperity, and the Master shall yet comfort Zion and shall yet choose Jerusalem. End of quote.
