Zechariah 2:4

Context
2:4 and said to him, “Hurry, speak to this young man 1  as follows: ‘Jerusalem will no longer be enclosed by walls 2  because of the multitude of people and animals there.

Zechariah 2:11

Context
2:11 “Many nations will join themselves to the Lord on the day of salvation, 3  and they will also be my 4  people. Indeed, I will settle in the midst of you all.” Then you will know that the Lord who rules over all has sent me to you.

1 sn That is, to Zechariah.

2 tn Heb “Jerusalem will dwell as open regions (פְּרָזוֹת, pÿrazot)”; cf. NAB “in open country”; CEV “won’t have any boundaries.” The population will be so large as to spill beyond the ancient and normal enclosures. The people need not fear, however, for the Lord will be an invisible but strong wall (v. 5).

3 tn Heb “on that day.” The descriptive phrase “of salvation” has been supplied in the translation for clarity.

4 tc The LXX and Syriac have the 3rd person masculine singular suffix in both places (“his people” and “he will settle”; cf. NAB, TEV) in order to avoid the Lord’s speaking of himself in the third person. Such resort is unnecessary, however, in light of the common shifting of person in Hebrew narrative (cf. 3:2).
