Chapter 2

2:1  I lifted up mine eyes again, and looked, and behold a man with a measuring line in his hand.

again

As in Zechariah 1:8-11, the "man" of Zechariah 2:1 1 is "the angel that talked with me" of Zechariah 1:3. The measuring-line (or reed) is used by Ezekiel Ezekiel 40:3,5 as a symbol of preparation for rebuilding the city and temple in the kingdom-age. Here also it has that meaning, as the context (Zechariah 2:4-13) shows. The subject of the vision is the restoration of nation and city. In no sense has this prophecy been fulfilled. The order is:

(1) The Lord in glory in Jerusalem, Zechariah 2:5 (cf. Matthew 24:29,30)

(2) the restoration of Israel, Zechariah 2:6;

(3) the judgment of Jehovah upon the nations, Zechariah 2:8, "after the glory" Matthew 25:31,32

(4) the full blessing of the earth in the kingdom, Zechariah 2:10-13, See "Kingdom (O.T.)" Genesis 1:26. (See Scofield "Zechariah 12:8") . "Israel," ; Genesis 12:2; Romans 11:26.

2:3  And, behold, the angel that talked with me went forth, and another angel went out to meet him,

angel

(See Scofield "Hebrews 1:4") .
