Zechariah 2:4-5

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. 2:5 But I (the Lord says) will be a wall of fire surrounding Jerusalem 3  and the source of glory in her midst.’”

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 “her”; the referent (Jerusalem) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
