Yahweh showed me four craftsmen. Then I asked, “What are these coming to do?”
“These are the horns which scattered Judah, so that no man lifted up his head; but these have come to terrify them, to cast down the horns of the nations, which lifted up their horn against the land of Judah to scatter it.”
I lifted up my eyes, and saw, and behold, a man with a measuring line in his hand.
