New American Standard Bible

Chapter 2

4 And he said to him, 'Run, speak to that young man there, saying, ‘Jerusalem will be inhabited as open country because of the multitude of people and cattle within it. 5 But I,’ declares the LORD, ‘will be a wall of fire to her on all sides, and I will be the glory in her midst.’?'
6 'You there! Flee from the land of the north,' declares the LORD, 'because I have spread you out like the four winds of the heavens,' declares the LORD. 7 'You, Zion! Escape, you who are living with the daughter of Babylon.' 8 For the LORD of armies says this: 'After glory He has sent me against the nations that plunder you, for the one who touches you, touches the apple of His eye. 9 For behold, I am going to wave My hand over them so that they will be plunder for their slaves. Then you will know that the LORD of armies has sent Me. 10 Shout for joy and rejoice, daughter of Zion; for behold I am coming and I will dwell in your midst,' declares the LORD.
King James Version

Chapter 2

4 And said unto him, Run, speak to this young man, saying, Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle therein: 5 For I, saith the LORD, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her.
6 Ho, ho, come forth, and flee from the land of the north, saith the LORD: for I have spread you abroad as the four winds of the heaven, saith the LORD. 7 Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon. 8 For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye. 9 For, behold, I will shake mine hand upon them, and they shall be a spoil to their servants: and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me.
10 Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the LORD.

Chapter 2

4 He said to him, "Run and tell this young man: Jerusalem will be inhabited without walls because of the number of people and animals in it." 5 The declaration of the Lord: "I myself will be a wall of fire around it, and I will be the glory within it."
6 "Listen! Listen! Flee from the land of the north"--this is the Lord's declaration--"for I have scattered you like the four winds of heaven"--this is the Lord's declaration. 7 "Listen, Zion! Escape, you who are living with Daughter Babylon." 8 For the Lord of Armies says this: "In pursuit of his glory, he sent me against the nations plundering you, for whoever touches you touches the pupil of my eye. 9 For look, I am raising my hand against them, and they will become plunder for their own servants. Then you will know that the Lord of Armies has sent me.
10 "Daughter Zion, shout for joy and be glad, for I am coming to dwell among you"--this is the Lord's declaration.
New Living Translation

Chapter 2

4 The other angel said, 'Hurry, and say to that young man, 'Jerusalem will someday be so full of people and livestock that there won't be room enough for everyone! Many will live outside the city walls. 5 Then I, myself, will be a protective wall of fire around Jerusalem, says the LORD. And I will be the glory inside the city!''
6 The LORD says, 'Come away! Flee from Babylon in the land of the north, for I have scattered you to the four winds. 7 Come away, people of Zion, you who are exiled in Babylon!'
8 After a period of glory, the LORD of Heaven's Armies sent me against the nations who plundered you. For he said, 'Anyone who harms you harms my most precious possession. 9 I will raise my fist to crush them, and their own slaves will plunder them.' Then you will know that the LORD of Heaven's Armies has sent me.
10 The LORD says, 'Shout and rejoice, O beautiful Jerusalem, for I am coming to live among you.

Chapter 2

4 and said to him, “Run, say to that young man, ‘Jerusalem shall be inhabited as villages without walls, because of the multitude of people and livestock in it. 5 And I will be to her a wall of fire all around, declares the LORD, and I will be the glory in her midst.’”
6 Up! Up! Flee from the land of the north, declares the LORD. For I have spread you abroad as the four winds of the heavens, declares the LORD. 7 Up! Escape to Zion, you who dwell with the daughter of Babylon. 8 For thus said the LORD of hosts, after his glory sent me to the nations who plundered you, for he who touches you touches the apple of his eye: 9 “Behold, I will shake my hand over them, and they shall become plunder for those who served them. Then you will know that the LORD of hosts has sent me. 10 Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion, for behold, I come and I will dwell in your midst, declares the LORD.
