And he said to me, "To measure Jerusalem, to see how wide it is and how long it is."2Then said I, Whither goest thou? And he said unto me, To measure Jerusalem, to see what is the breadth thereof, and what is the length thereof.2I asked, "Where are you going?" He answered me, "To measure Jerusalem to determine its width and length."
